    Weapons Control Laws

    I put this here because it didn't really deal with guns. I was watching one of those police shows a couple days ago and they showed a prison riot. When it was all over they confiscated 86 knives. This got me thinking about various gun bans around the nation and thought if they can make or get weapons inside a high security prison, how can anyone think that bans work against criminals? To me this simply proves that bans only take weapons from the law abiding.

    What we have is a failure to understand.

    You have that all so wrong. Facts have no place in any 'control' discussion. You must discuss only emotions. How one feels is so much more important than mere facts; feelings transcend reality and lead you to the correct conclusions.

    If only people could understand that control leads to happiness. We will all be happy when 'everything not forbidden is compulsory.'

    Clever wolves they are. Never thought about it the way your presenting it.
    Too bad they (anti's) use emotion and fear rather than facts and common sense when making laws like those disarming us.

    I'll bet most of those "knives" were actually shanks, come made slashing or puncture instruments.
