…is something you will never, ever, ever hear – even if you eat Tom Brady’s avocado ice cream and live longer than Keith Richards. The over/under on hearing that statement in any of our lifetimes is zero. It just won’t happen. Period. Nor will you ever witness a spate of drive-by knifings or an uptick in the number of multiple homicides by ax attack, (or cast-iron skillets for that matter). You will never read about a stray rock missing its target and killing a sleeping child, or someone with a tire iron taking out an entire office of co-workers.
If you live to see the retirement of your grandchildren’s grandchildren you will never have to worry about sitting down in a movie theater and coming out in a body bag because someone decided to mass strangle the audience. And God knows you’ll never have to fear sending your kindergartner off to school wondering about whether a deranged psychopath carrying a noose is going to have enough time to slay 30 something teachers and students. Even if your mail carrier goes postal with a blow torch, chances are your cable bill will sustain more damage than you will.
Yes, almost anything can be used as a weapon. Almost nothing else ever is. At least not with the precision, efficiency, and magnitude of devastation of firearms.
The bullshit of the knowingly disingenuous theory that “guns don’t kill people…” is so self evident that even the knuckle-dragging cretins that that spew it should be afraid to look stupid by bleating this old saw.
There’s a lot of middle ground on many issues. But not on this one. Guns kill people. End of sentence. It’s a fact. It’s been empirically proven. I know science is a hard concept for some of the wingnuts to grasp, but simple statistics takes a little less book learnin’ and only an ounce of sense. Hell, you don’t even need to know how to read – all you have to do is turn on the screen of your choice and watch the pictures go by.
Guns kill people. If you can’t concede that point you’re a moron. And I don’t debate with morons. Or murders. So go
fuck shoot yourself with something lethal like a stapler.
