How A Rational Debate On Guns Actually Goes:

"Do guns exist?"


"No!"


"I'm sorry you have chosen not to live in the real world.  Next."



"Do guns exist?"
"Yes."


"What can you do about it?"


"We could ban them."


"I'm sorry, there are hundreds of millions of them, and the Constitution and Supreme Court say they're a right."


"I don't like that.  It shouldn't be true."


"I'm sorry you have chosen not to live in the real world.  Next."



"Do guns exist?"


"Yes."


"What can you do about it?"


"Not much, really.  They're made all over, of durable materials, and there's a demand for them, so any law is at most a stopgap."


"What about guns in schools?"


"NO!  There should be laws against that!"


"There are laws against that.  I'm sorry you have chosen not to live in the real world.  Next."



"Do guns exist?"


"Yes."


"What can you do about it?"


"Not much, really.  They're made all over, of durable materials, and there's a demand for them, so any law is at most a stopgap."


"What about guns in schools?"


"Sometimes, a deranged person is going to take a gun to school.  I don't like it, but it happens."


"What should be the response?"


"The police should take care of it."


"Why not have police, or armed citizens, there ahead of time?"


"No!  That would endorse violence!"


"I'm sorry you have chosen not to live in the real world.  Next."



"Do guns exist?"


"Yes."


"What can you do about it?"


"Not much, really.  They're made all over, of durable materials, and there's a demand for them, so any law is at most a stopgap."

"What should be the response?"


"The police should take care of it."


"Why not have police, or armed citizens, there ahead of time?"


"That would make sense.  They'll be able to respond a lot faster."


"YOU RACIST, NRA, CHILD MURDERER!"
