JP, say we do ban guns.  How do we get the 100 million or so out of circulation?

Confiscate them.  I mean, obviously it doesn't happen over night... but is it really better to just let things go as they have?  We have cities that are, in terms of killing, essentially war zones.

Dot, I'm not trying to be personal except that this is a pretty personal issue where I live.  People get killed here.  Call it a cultural thing if you like.  I'll leave the explaining to people who are wiser than me.

Go f**k yourself.  with a gun

I can do that without utensils.

Sorry to piss you off so much, dot.  I do really feel strongly about this.  I don't like how it masquerades as other issues such as free speech or whatever.  It's not.  It's about devices that are designed to kill people.  And they do kill people.  Very, very effectively.

I already said yes, bear. And yes I am aware that DC bans guns.  Thing is, you can just walk across the street into Maryland or across a bridge into Virginia and buy all the guns you need.  They'll even sell them to you if you're wearing a t-shirt that says "I love to kill people" and stuff.  It's been done on the local news.

yes, and i know we've banned guns here.  however, you can literally walk across the street into maryland and buy all the guns you need.  Virginia is even better.

"THEN you only have guns in the hands of criminals."

Right now you can't legally have an anthrax farm in your basement.  That means that anthrax is only the property of the government and/or criminals.  Should we do away with associated laws and allow everybody to cook up their own brand of anthrax?  I mean, it's a free country right?

"Also, what about sport shooting?  Do you propose to outlaw guns for that?  How about hunting?"

Honestly, who f*cking cares?  We're going to tolerate school yard shootings and other types of murder just because people like to shoot guns for fun?  What about people who like to blow up buildings for fun?  Should we tolerate that?  How about kids who get a thrill from dropping rocks from freeway overpasses?  I mean, if they promise only to do it when no cars are around it's just fine... right? 

"what is to stop them from breaking into my home and making a clean getaway long before the police could ever get to my house?"

You're right. In fact, what's to stop any would-be criminal from committing any sort of crime?  Perhaps we should all respond by living in armed fortresses with moats, barbed wire and booby traps and stuff.

Look, I live in one of the most violent cities in the USA.  People who love guns have made it this way.  Thanks to people who love guns people get killed in my neighborhood all the time.  Thanks to people who love guns the local highschools have metal detectors. 

If you are pro-gun, you are pro-murder.  Be honest with yourself and with everybody else.

It means that we should have a citizen's militia in order to prevent the government from becoming tyrannical.  It's outdated now since having firearms is pretty useless against a government that has anthrax and hydrogen bombs.

We should have gun abolition.

I think he and Walt were captured trying to leave the island.  Isn't that what they said?  I need to start paying more attention, perhaps even taking notes.

I don't get it.  How could he be "a spy" if he got captured?  I mean, if they knew he was from the island and all that?
