> As the Prez said, we punish reckless drivers, but we still install child
seats and seat belts. We punish airplane hijackers, but we still have metal
detectors and luggage inspection at airports. It is said that an ounce of
prevention is worth a pound of cure. Why should firearms be the only thing
where prevention is forbidden?

Why are you quoting the prez, like we care about his opinion? A better analogy
would be, we punish hijackers, but we still have airline flights! The goal of
the anti gun movement is nothing less than to take away guns from honest people.
Why do you come in here and make obviously misleading statements as if we all
have noodles for brains?
