Do gun fetishists ever get tired of this ridiculous comparisons they parrot?

And what is the intended purposes or cigarettes and booze? One puts the users life in danger and the other even with moderate usage puts others in danger. Outlaw them already.

How so? I own several guns, I'm allowed to carry, and yet I've never exercised this power. My friends who carry have never exercised this power. Unless of course you count the one that shot a guy who was trying to kidnap a woman. So what is this power that I supposedly have over others?

A nuclear weapon would be the ultimate in home defense! If THAT won't stop a criminal bent on pillaging my castle, nothing would! None of you can argue with THAT, okay? A nuclear weapon definitely TOPS these high capacity magazines you are arguing about on here.

I want one!!!!

One small problem, they're illegal in NYC. So getting one to your house would get you one year in jail.

Moderate alcohol use does not put anyone in danger, and an occasional cigarette in the comfort of your own home is not a death sentence. Smoking regularly is, of course.

Your argument doesn't make any sense...no matter how many times you repeat it. But something tells me you won't stop.

Never heard of or seen of it, but I'm sure since you watch it regularly it must be quite fruity.
