    Little Red Riding Hood is a subversive piece of literature that perpetrates the myth of gender inequality and paints Big Bad Wolves in a bad light. I think the ban on it is BS and should be lifted.

    This is the tactic of comparing two completely different situations in order to make the one look ridiculous. Is it ridiculous Little Red was banned in the past? Yes. But does that make not banning guns more ridiculous now? No. Each debate is dealing with a separate issue in society, and to compare the two is comparing apples and oranges.

    @zed68 It says "banned in America", not banned in American Public Schools which is what it should say if it wanted to get the correct point across, which wouldn`t make sense because Assault rifle are also baned in American public schools.

    And by the way Little Red Riding Hood is not Banned by American Schools, not being part of the curriculum is different than being banned.

    If it really was banned than if an 18 year old High School student wanted to read the book they would not be allowed to carry it onto the premises and have it immediately confiscated if they did, is that the case?

    Little Red Riding Hood isn`t banned in America.

    It may not be allowed in school library`s, but neither are AR-15`s.
    This is misleading. No, it`s an outright lie.

    Americans don`t want firearms ban. Even if you could get a complete firarms ban on the books, it would be impossible to enforce. Not hard, but impossible...without starting a 2nd civil war...or maybe it would be a 2nd revolutionary war.

    Why do you care anyways, europe?

    I agree, not a good example. Making a comparison like this is as weak an argument as when the pro gun side compares statistics to drinking and driving.

    Personally, like most advocating stricter gun control, I don`t think all guns should be banned, but better regulated. Better training and testing (maybe a psych. eval.?). Everything licensed, everywhere. I support a properly regulated militia, run by the local community but with oversight. Who knows where that could even lead over time...better trained and equipped part time/volunteer police? That`s probably a better way to fight crime than a bunch of poorly trained, sometimes unlicensed John MClane`s running around. In the very least there would be a properly trained militia. What really surprises me is that some seem to resist the idea based on some sort of paranoid speculation about the "guv`mnt". Would you alone armed with an AK-47 stop a drone anyhow?

    Kinder eggs were banned for two specific reasons:
    Stupid People.
    Overly Litigious Lawyers.

    As for why Europe cares, maybe it`s because they`re a little nervous...The US does own roughly half of all the worlds guns.

    And if your having trouble seeing an assault rifle in the picture, maybe it`s because the US was the ONLY country in the WORLD to change the definition of one...

    jaysingrimm -

    How does europe have any right to care? Your statement of USA owning half the guns in the world is referring to privately owned guns. How does private ownership affect europe? It doesn`t.

    You can call it paranoid to worry about the guvment, but history shows different.
    Yea, you are right...it would be hard to stop a drone with a AK47.
    If the American government were to overstep it`s bounds, it`s the boys in blue, not the ones in cammo that will enforce tyranny.

    Lastly, we haven`t changed the definition of "assault weapons". You have. That weapon shown in the picture isn`t an assault riffle. It`s no different than my Mini 14, which shoots the same round. They are both semi auto. One is scary black, and the other looks like the gun my grandpa goes hunting with. They both do the same exact thing, yet no one has ever called the mini 14 an "assault riffle" and no one has suggested banning it specifically.

    The idiocy is that the governing "I know better what you need, than you" body forces these changes based on a scant minority of idiots. Instilling fear of guns. They are tools, books are also tools. Kids need actual parents involved their lives who guide and ground them in reality.

If you don`t get it, think about this: american movies get rated to more mature audiences if it has boobs but has no problem depicting violence. One of those things is wonderful and the other is sick. Which one?

    Yeah, we all know how well criminals follow the law. Restricting or banning guns will only affect those who obey the law, not the idiot criminals who go on shooting sprees.

    Besides, no law or government has the the authority to take my natural right to defend myself and the ones I love. The only people who need to fear my firearms are those who intend to do me harm.

    We see exactly what is wrong in those pictures: It`s called `False Equivalency`.

    Also is demonstrated that Moms Demand Action are unable to make a LOGICAL argument. (After all, it`s all about the `feels`.)

    Most rational people are not stupid enough to fall for this false equivalency just because they put cute, innocent looking kids in the picture. (and remember, it was the Moms Demand Action that put that rifle in a child`s hands...rational people would not do so)

    Stop overloading my logic circuits! Nice try lefties, but the gun would keep both kids alive in the hands of a trained adult in the event of a school shooting. You take guns away from the responsible legal folks then there is nothing to stop the lunatic who would acquire weapons by any means necessary. Sorry, the lunatics, criminals, and evil folks don`t actually abide by all your gun control laws, go figure! I know it`s a shock to you lefties, but some nifty sign that says "No guns oon premises" never stopped anyone from committing an armed crime.

    It seems many of you do though...fair enough!

    I just can`t see how so much tolerance for guns can be considered ok.

    Do you realize contrary to popular belief and what news likes to portray we do have laws for them. There`s a lot of factors at work with why people kill people when you start blaming an object you start ignoring the actual problems and have a temporary solution.

    I find it ironic when people argue this picture is a poor example and comparison, and then make poor comparisons themselves to alcohol related issues. Your hypocrisy only gives your opposition ammunition.

    You want a pat on the back when crime rates go slightly down in a carry state, but cry foul if someone points out one in which they increased. And if somebody points out that DC has seen roughly a 75% drop in homicide rate over the past ten years...

    And what hypocrisy would that be I`m not the one preacing to ban either. I`m the one showing you what you sound like dictating what people can and can`t have for "safety" with an example of something actually banned for that reason.

    You want a pat on the back when crime rates go slightly down in a carry state, but cry foul if someone points out one in which they increased

    An example of a carry state with a higher homicide rate? Oklahoma! Their intentonal homicide rate was up to 5.7 from 5.3

    As for trying to change the subject to alcohol after telling someone you disagreed with to shut up...I guess I`ve read your tone differently.

    As I said in the beginning tho, I agree this poster is a weak argument....it takes a page out of your book.

    Who said I wanted to ban all guns McGovern? Read my first comment in this forum. Like most advocating stricter gun control, it`s just that: I want to see better training, testing, and licensing. I`ll forgive your transgression tho, as all too many are confused about the notion of gun control...
