Thus the importance of discerning how each contributes to the economy. Let's try this again. Consider a ban on cars, trucks, buses and knives. What happens?

I don't think anyone is looking at a gun ban based on its effect on the economy.  Gun Ban discussions are usually centered on 'Guns are necessary for safety and protection' vs. 'Banning guns would reduce the gun homicide rate'.

Yes, but he knows he's lost that debate, so he tries to set up a straw-man argument which thinks he can win.

I think anyone who makes the absurd comment "Well then let's ban cars because cars can kill people!" needs to address the questions I asked. If you want to make such statements, then you do need to answer those questions. If not, others still do.

People have lost the rational debate on this topic. So they try to use fallacies or non sequiturs or emotional arguments instead.

I agree, but perhaps, things need to "come out from within" before they will be "solved from with out"

I have seen those guys in combat and they run from gunfire.

I need to see a video of you actually watching them running from gun fire..... or it didn't happen LOL
haha. I don't have video of it. But tonight I will check to see if can find some of me running away. I did a lot of running away in the Balkans and elsewhere. But in all seriousness, the troops I met there were not eager to fight. Now the Guatemalans, they were batshit-crazy to mix it up. Real warriors (unlike me) run toward the sound of gunfire.    


Remind of something, but didnt US troops fleed Somalia, Lost Viethnam war, well any war that wasnt based on using cruise missile and war fought from few K miles? How many times US invaded Iraq, Afghanistan?
