    Guns are simply the evolution of swords.

    Swords are simply the evolution of sticks.

    Sticks are simply the evolution of fists.

    There is always going to be someone that is the strongest in a given group of people. There is always someone who will find the biggest stick. There is always someone who is the best swordsman. There is always someone who has better aim or a bigger and better gun than you.

    Guns are not equalizers, nor are swords, nor are sticks.

    The answer, the answer, is urbane - just like you.

    "A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that." -- Shane
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. - Cesare, Marqui of Beccaria

    I dunno. An 85 lb. weakling wielding a stick doesn't scare me much. The same weakling with a gun? I'd be scared.

    A gun allows me, as an example of a relatively small and physically weak human being, to be responsible for my own safety. A stick in my hands, or my fists, wouldn't be up to much.

    They work equally well on a subject however they've lived their life.

    Neither is 'live by the gun, die by the gun'.

    So many big words in this thread, so little meaning.

    I dunno, Jack Flak, you want to have a HUGFEST ?!111!!!!
