Re: 5 year old given rifle as gift, kills 2 year old sister

Yeah, I don't get where the "you're going to ban everything" hysteria comes from except from irrational paranoia on the scale of Oliver Stone dropping acid. Who's banned anything? Who's going to even come close to banning anything? We can't even get mandatory, nationwide criminal and mental illness background checks passed without catcalls that the Constitution is being trampled on by Imaginary Hitler and we're one short step away from the planet that Landru ruled.

Shit, we've had at least two posters defend using mail order to buy rifles, and without any background checks being conducted during the purchasing process. How unhinged and/or big an irresponsible asshole do you have to be to want people to be buy guns and live ammunition through mail order and without any checks on the buyer?

A guy named Lee Harvey Oswald did just that. Twice. The results: a murder attempt on a U.S. Army general, a dead police officer, a Texas governor with multiple bullet wounds and the assassination of the 35th President of the United States.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
