Maybe they should ban any car that can be shot out of! Hell, it would cut down on the drive-bys and such! Oh, I forgot; the oil companies would never allow that to happen!
ANY nut with ANY weapon can kill almost ANYone ANY time they want to.

I remember those times when things were different. We had our knives in our pockets and during recess we would play different games with them. I still have the old Marine Corp pocket knife I carried back then. No one would think of stabbing another. Somehow that was considered sissy if you used anything except your fists in a fight. Well, maybe it was different in the bigger cities, but at least that is the way I remembered it in my small rural community. It's a different culture now and I guess the hip thing for a kid is to be like their rapper gangster role models. As far as winning the anti gun crowd, I don't know how to do that except maybe by voting or promoting firearms as a sport. To put it in the mainstream might offset some of that wacko stigma.

\people want banned gets banned? just exactly what kind of world are these" banners" striving for?
Plus, what the hell would they do with nothing to crusade against?
Ps. I remember reading a long time ago that Dianne Finestein(sp?) actually owns two handguns.
Her quote was " I'll get rid of them after guns are banned." Intewresting, eh?
We all be equal, but some are a tad bit more equal than others.
I'll get off my soapbox now. I feel the need for making many empty brass .45 cases.

This board is always full of interesting people. Good to hear that you do sci fi writing. The topics such as you suggest make great inspiration for the utopia genre. It reminds me of the Walgreen commercial about showing a glimpse into the "world of perfect." In this world everyone is a winner; all baseball hits are runs for the home team; the player's uniforms never get dirty; everything is perfect. If you look a little closer, what a horrible, boring existence that would be. Sure, we pass laws for the good of society, but let's not surpass the limits of good sense. Liberals want a perfect PC world, at the expense of personal freedoms, responsiblity, and individualism. "Don't you dare embrace the traditions of this country, lest you offend someone." Gosh, wonder when that became a law? I never knew we had the right not to be offended. Well, maybe I'm being too simplistic! Thanks for letting me borrow your soap box.

there were many days this year that I took my shotguns to school to do some small game hunting after - I just kept them in the trunk and didnt breath a word of it
this may seem hard to believe for you guys but last year we actually had a kid expelled and he couldnt graduate because our school police officer found a bow in his back seat

That was a simpler and IMO better time we lived in.
