No, I am talking only about pit bulls.
Guns kill far more people than pit bulls, every day.
That logic has been proved here many times to be fallacious. Guns do not jump out of their holster all on their own and go maul somebody - or even shoot them. It is not a valid analogy and it is silly to suggest it.
You *are* aware that gun bans and breed bans have a strong commonality, arent you??
In the context of this discussion, there is no commonality whatsoever.
And what is with the * * thingys you are inserting into your post??? Are you typing in texting symbols? Actually will appreciate an answer on this.
You are also reaching when you try to say the State should not have any say in the control of wild beast in residential neighborhoods. To use a correct analogy, do you advocate allowing people to keep a tiger in their home?
No dog is a “wild beast”.
The domestic dog was originally classified as Canis familiaris and Canis familiarus domesticus by Carolus Linnaeus in 1758, and was reclassified in 1993 as Canis lupus familiaris, a subspecies of the gray wolf Canis lupus, by the Smithsonian Institution and the American Society of Mammalogists.
Nice straw man.
The “*” that perplexes you are used to emphasize a word or point.
They’re used quite commonly, here.
I do not “text”.
The overweening problem is that valid, -serious- words loose their power, often becoming effectively emasculated by their overuse.
“Evil”, is, by definition, things/actions/thoughts that are intentionally and biblically sinful.
Casually throwing it in around in an inappropriate or ‘joking’ context strips of its original power and import.
The liberals know this and have effectively diluted the original “black and white” view of good and bad, turning everything they can into myriad shades of gray, instead.
By saying that a DOG is “evil”, you are joining hands with the moral equivocators of the world.
True “evil” is found in pedophiles, poisoners, rapists and frequently, murderers, .
All of them intentionally formulate their plan, prey upon the trust/innocence/ignorance/gullibility of their victims, with malice aforethought.
-That- is evil.
[the Bible can provide you with an exhaustive list of other things that are evil]
In the KJV version of the bible, we read “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”.
That was purposefully mistranslated for King James’ benefit, owing to his ‘witch phobia’.
The original text said “Thou shalt not suffer a -poisoner- to live” yet we have so-called “Christians” on this very forum who cheerfully brag about poisoning the neighbor’s dog.
“That logic has been proved here many times to be fallacious. Guns do not jump out of their holster all on their own and go maul somebody - or even shoot them. It is not a valid analogy and it is silly to suggest it.”
Every year, the accidental discharge of firearms kill more people than pit bulls do.
They may not have “jumped out of their holster” but they did ‘kill someone’ without malice aforethought.
Whether they “meant to” or not, the person is just as dead and the nanny-staters use that “silliness” to enforce wholesale bans, same as the “silliness” of total breed bans.
There is no difference between their desire to ban “certain types” of guns and “certain types” of dogs.
The line between ‘good guns/bad guns’ grows ever thinner, just as with dog breeds.
It may not be a perfect physical ‘analogy’ match but it is a very close political/ideological one.
If you cannot see the obvious, albeit pernicious connection, you are playing right into their hands.
You must stand for ALL personal freedoms and rights or you stand for none.
Simple as that.
Rather than ask why someone “can’t have a pet tiger”, you should ask why some people can’t own an automatic weapon.
The answer is obvious; because the people who -hated- other people’s “certain types” of things but loved their *own* “certain type” of the exact same thing did -nothing-, not understanding that, in the end, it’s all a progressive, slow moving Juggernaut that intends to eventually *all* forms of that “thing”, be it guns, dogs, knives, vehicles...*whatever*.
