So dcrane, if just one life would be saved are you willing to give up you car,truck,motorcycle,bicycle,skateboard, whatever you use to get around? Should I have to give up mine, because that's the way YOU (your herd) think?
I knew someone would respond with the whole "give up your car then" theory
Answer: some things have a valid enough purpose or "need" in life that the risk is a necessity (cars, trucks, airplanes obviously fall into this category), however most people feel that their is no such "necessity" for people to own, use and play with assault weapons and hand grenades (therefor... it not worth human lives for us to enjoy this unnecessary play is what most Americans are thinking right now).
The subject of skateboards is a little different, I suppose if you could find enough cases on any kind of regular basis (like they do with assault weapons) in which skateboards are killing people (other then the person riding on them), then people might start talking about banning or limited their use by making laws that require auto stops that pop out if a rider is not on the board or banning their use on public streets. This example actually occurred with ski's as noted below...
after enough examples that Ski's were lethal weapons that were killing people other then the rider laws were put in place to protect the public and forced any ski's made, sold and used to have safety devices which stop the ski if it not under the control of the rider and to limit the point of the end as well as the angle... Enough examples that assault weapons were being used for the purposes of inflicting mass carnage and killing people they are placing new/updated laws to prevent the free rapid release of ammunition without pause as well as prevent the point/angle of amo to penetrate Armour! (see... other thing have gone through this same change) You didn't see the Ski people bitchin' did ya LOL
I would agree if their was a viable way to only make my AK47 workable within professional registered gun range boundaries that would probably be acceptable to the majority of the American people and the Gov as an alternative solution to this ongoing problem.... I just dont think thats a feasible option for us
