...did you just take the logical inverse of the premise, prove it true, and then claim that proves the premise false? And got +4 insightful?? Come on.

Just because (he claims) most shootings occur in places with high gun control does not imply that all places with high gun control have lots of shootings.

Debate and think what you will, but at least do it properly.

He isn't saying that cheating isn't 100% the cheater's fault, just that facilitating it is also bad.

But are they responsible for facilitating and encouraging this practice? Of course
