No I didn't,

I said drunk driving laws and referenced abortion, voter fraud, and immigration laws. Who needs laws when we have thoughts and prayers

I was also being facetious , thought it was obvious.

Yes and I am certain that no stupid things happen in New York or California. There is no geographical boundaries for stupid.

Statistics show that gun owners and their families are more likely to be injured or killed by guns than those who don't own guns.
Same with cars.

There are more church shootings than school shootings. Carrying a firearm in church isn't dumb, pulling out a loaded gun to show soneone is though.

People do stupid things all the time.
I have to agree with this. It's gun safety 101. You never point a weapon at another person and you never put your finger on the trigger unless you are preparing to shoot your weapon.
