Skip to comments.Emotionalism – The Liberal Method of ‘Argument’

If you take an honest look at the world, though, what do you think are the chances that we can stop insane violent people from doing insane violent things? Can we make sure this never happens again? Not a chance. It is an absolute certainty that evil and violent people will do evil and violent things in the future. The real questions are, how can we best protect ourselves and how can we minimize the number of these people in society.
As to the saving the life of one child argument, here are some facts to consider:
According to the Center for Disease Control, Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger. So that is around 700 dead children per year. Approximately 20% of these deaths occurred in public pools with certified life-guards.
There are approximately 365,000 dog bites per year in the U.S. that are serious enough to require a visit to the emergency room 1000 per day. 38 people in the U.S. were killed by dogs in 2012. Around 50% of those injured and killed are children.
The government reported that in 2010, 1210 children under the age of 15 died in traffic accidents. Approximately 70 children per year choke to death on food. Since 1973, 110 children have choked to death on balloons.
I could go on, but the point is that there are many, many government controls we could propose that would save the life of at least one child. We dont do that because that isnt the standard we use in the real world. It is the standard used only in political theater where politicians seeks to prove that they care about the children more than you.
