    It was input of great value. You should be thankful. And someday perhaps you will be.

    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    OK this goes to what we have been saying: Gun control doesn't work, if you could keep guns out of everyone's hands, then they will use knives. Which apparently is what happened in the UK. The stabbings were getting so bad that the police actually had a Knife hand-in campaign started in 2010! And people protesting for Knife control.

    You can't just legislate crime away by attacking weapons. It won't work and all you are doing is causing problems for people who are not criminals. I guess pretty soon you can only use plastic utensils in the UK. At least until someone pokes someone's eye out with a spork.

    Sparko, that's a straw man. Nobody in favor of gun control thinks it will "legislate crime away". People in favor of gun control think it will reduce the number of victims, not stop attacks entirely.
