I have to agree with you on this one, even though I have the feeling most Americans don't even know what real socialism is unless they have spent a little time in France. The welfare cycle is started at birth, and many never recover. But that is another story.Scott SoCal said:You can't say that because it implies an actual solution to a real problem. See, in liberal utopia, it's a good idea to provide economic incentives to procreate particularly for people who will never escape poverty because of the kids they are encouraged to have. Government replacing dad in the family unit is destructive. But in utopia it's the intentions that count.jmdirt said:The problem is people having kids who shouldn't be having kids. That might be even tougher to deal with than regulating how guns/ammo are sold.Scott SoCal said:It's the progressive way. Ban big gulp soda, erm, uh sanitize the human existence.frenchfry said:Or how about this one.Scott SoCal said:If all motorized vehicles are confiscated we can then eliminate all traffic fatalities attributed to their use. Side benefit is about 5,000 pedestrians and 1,000 cyclists are killed every year by being hit by a car which is utterly outrageous and many, many times higher than mass shootings.
Of course there's no Velo selective outrage about this just yet.
Some people die while walking in the park.
Therefore walking in the park = assault rifles
Conclusion: we should ban walking in the park (or assault rifles are no more dangerous than walking in the park, depending on your point of view).
This is a fun game!
You have any idea how many toddlers drown in bathtubs every year?
The progressive way - attack the symptom, ignore the problem.
