“It's good advice not to hang with terrorists; you might get caught up in their problems.”

“To be clear, Americans have killed more innocent civilians than any other country has. George Bush and Dick Cheney are nothing but common war criminals ... protected by our own military. By your logic EVERY American citizen is taking a risk by living here ... and yet we are outraged when there is an attack on our soil. Innocent Americans get "caught up in the problems" of the Military Industrial Complex that is intent on invading and killing every other country on Earth. Your "logic" is non-existent.”
“Well, on 9/11 4 planes did come in and cause the mass torture and murder of 3000 Innocent civilians.. and we didn't like. So we went to war with the people and ideology who threw the first, unprovoked strike.”

“A: Ten thousand Americans die to gun deaths each year, but that's okay as long as it's Americans killing Americans?
B: They had no weapons. We spent 2.2 trillion dollars invading them.
C: It wasn't entire middle east hating us, it was a small group. Bin Laden if you recall the CIA helped his group in the 90's overthrow his government. You cannot destroy an entire place for action of a few.”
“Why do you care about specifically these thousands and not all the others ? There are many thousands more who die because they didn't get a flu shot, or didn't get a motorcycle training course, or text-ed while driving, or didn't exercise and so got diabetes or were one of the 100,000 killed by medical mistakes ? Were these deaths somehow acceptable while gun deaths aren't ? Are you opposed to unnecessary deaths or just the ones that support a political agenda (gun prohibition).”
“a simple regression analysis would be informative. But then again, how do you know how many guns a state has- legal, illegal, etc.It's probably fair to say the the more cars a state has on it's roads then the more deaths.This seemingly amazing statistic works for a whole bunch of things. Say, the more democrats there are then the higher the taxes.”
“So pass a law, suspend civil liberties and send the police into everyone's home to confiscate guns. You could institute a "report your neighbor" program for cash.There are lots of ways you could implement firearms prohibition.”

“Always going to the extreme to make your point diminishes your credibility. No one is suggesting gun confiscation.”

“He didn't suggest ANY of that; you did.
You only have to ask yourself (and have an answer Hopefully) why you did that?”
“It's an uphill battle. Poaches loan rifles and ammo to villagers who will go and kill the Rhino for the horn. The cost of one cartridge is more than a villager makes in a week. It's hard to stop this. Perhaps a breeding program outside Africa, maybe someplace in the US where these critters can be protected.”
