You just broke my BS meter. It went up in smoke due to an overload. You owe me a new one. What a bunch of clap trap. You're so intelligent that you just went to the slammer. I guess you weren't smart enough to stay out of trouble or talk your way out of trouble once you got into trouble. Go smash your head against a rock a few hundred times. It won't make you any smarter but it will feel good when you stop.

We all know that guns can cost lives because the media repeat this message endlessly, as if we could not figure it out for ourselves. But even someone who reads newspapers regularly and watches numerous television newscasts may never learn that guns also save lives-- much less see any hard facts comparing how many lives are lost and how many are saved.

But that trade-off is the real issue, not the Second Amendment or the National Rifle Association, which so many in the media obsess about. If guns cost more lives than they save, we can always repeal the Second...
