How's this for rationale thought: We kill 10,000 of ourselves every year because we are by far the most heavily armed country on earth. We have a gun for every person in this country yet all the guns are owned by only half the people because the other half want nothing to do with them. 6 yr olds are being massacred at school BY GUNS and you want MORE guns. That makes you stupid.
Sounds pretty rationale to me.
