If you're pro gun control, shouldn't you also be against alcohol sales?
Drunk drivers kill more people than "assault rifles".

Drunk drivers kill 11,000 people per year. Around 14,000 people per year are victims of homicide involving all types of guns.

If gun control is about protecting people, then alcohol should be banned since it causes 88,000 deaths a year. Has anyone asked democrats what their views are concerning the sale of alcohol?

You'll get sputtering, hemming and hawing, and "but the NRA wants dead school children!"

Gov dont care about Alcoholics. They care about armed mad civilians tired about being taxed to death . Alcoholics arent a threat .

When alcohol is designed to kill we can have a more constructive debate on this topic.

Well technically it is both a toxin and a poison, so here we are.

You could give many examples of people dying in much greater numbers than mass shootings but those examples don’t play well in Dim politics.

Do you need ID to buy alcohol? A license to sell it? Can you buy it from a third-party like your neighbor? Are there any rules or age restrictions against buying it? Is it available anywhere anytime? Can you be held responsible for selling too much of it to someone who then harms someone?


Bad argument.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Maybe I missed the amendment stating that alcoholic beverages were necessary to the security of a free state, and a right of the people to keep and bear booze, shall not be infringed.

You're supposed to leave this part off, people might wonder what 'regulated' means.

Actually no real educated person does Wonder because the term had a definitive meaning at the time

That liberal a-holes like you choose to either pretend you don't know this or are you really are just that stupid isn't our problem

Try researching what well-regulated meant in the late 18th century versus today.

Why not just answer the question?

The public can’t be trusted with guns.... based on deaths from alcohol, why can the public be trusted with it?

Why are you not sick and tired of deaths from drunk drivers? Their lives worth less because they died from alcohol related injuries?

Militia - a military force that is raised from the civil population to supplement a regular army in an emergency.

Seems plain enough that is the government is the problem causing the emergency they are probably not going to hand out guns and ammo to the people to fight back.

Take a down vote for your response.

Yard Darts weren’t either. Nor 3 wheeled ATCs. Cars without airbags wasn’t from the best I can recall. Was DDT pesticide designed to kill humans? I can’t remember.

You know what they didn’t have in the Bill of Rights? Same as liquor? An amendment.

Are guns designed to kill? Pretty sure they are designed to launch a projectile at a certain speed and with a certain level of precision. Now that we've disposed of your low-grade, ignorance-based talking point that only appeals to those with room temperature IQ's; how do you parse the fact that the vast, overwhelming major of the roughly 400,000,000 firearms in civilian hands don't kill anyone or anything? Are they not being used as designed? Or is that you are simply a dolt and you don't do well with putting things in proper context?

Great counterpoint. Of course, the right wing lunatics are not going to like it. Nice, Pvt Hudson.

Guy says it's a great counterpoint and then hides from all the Constitution talk
