"If we outlawed tobacco we'd have way less cancer but most people don`t like the thought of the government putting us in a bubble for our own safety though."

Here is a HUGE distinction between the two. If you choose to smoke tobacco you put YOURSELF at risk. If you choose to own a gun you put OTHERS at risk.

I have no problem with people taking dangerous risks that only affect them. To me that is personal responsibility.

Tobacco never killed a room full of 1st graders.

To further your point - drugs are illegal, so surely there exists no drug-related crime?

The logic fails. Drug use hasn`t even fallen significantly as a percentage of the population since being outlawed. Why would we expect the outlawing of guns to be any different?

Shell casings you can reprime them, put more powder in them and put a new bullet in them. That would negate that idea and everyone would do it.

Yes. But if the gun was illegal period his mom wouldn't have had it either. Then he might not have had access to one.

"As for laws the guiy that did this those guns were under LAW illegal for him to have."

"And then there's always Chris Rock`s idea of making every bullet cost $5000. Bullets can be reloaded this is why you need people who own guns to be in charge of gun laws."

I don`t get what that means. I can only assume you don`t get it. What he was saying is that if bullets cost $5,000 there would be no such thing as an innocent bystander. There certainly wouldn`t be school massacres like this either. Nobody could afford it. however you could still defend yourself as that would be worth the price.
