The owners of CandyLand should sue them out of existence.
this shows just how irresponsible we all are. openbsd is arguably the most relevant/important OSS project after the linux kernel.
Theo, is that you?

I like it!!!
Kindly don't interfere with any facts. Once all the guns in the country are outlawed, confiscated, and destroyed there will be pure utopia. Everyone will be skipping through the daisies, holding hands, and singing songs together.
And then when a couple of psychopaths lob a half dozen molotov cocktails into classrooms, the gun grabbers will gleefully proclaim how wonderful it was that the charred-beyond-recognition children were safe from gunfire, while still patting each other on the back for their wonderful contributions.
Does it really matter what an object's main purpose is? If someone dies from irresponsible and/or illegal use of the object, the victim is still dead. If your child is killed by a drunk driver or stabbed to death are you going to be any less devastated than if they were killed by a gun?
The next thing you'll likely say is that no one "needs" to have a gun, and since they can be deadly, they should not be allowed. The same can be said of alcohol, no?
"make people responsible for their actions"
Hmm I do agree that some people shouldn't be allowed to drive even in the absence of alcohol. Drunk driving, on the other hand, is only possible when alcohol is added to the mix. Alcohol is readily available to the average person (they don't even need a background check -- instant, or otherwise). So, if we take away the alcohol, or at least impose some restrictions (including instant background checks at all places where alcohol is served), this would be common-sense laws to protect our society. Right? How is this different from guns? Dangerous is dangerous and innocent people who are killed needlessly, regardless of the manner in which they are killed, are still dead.
I'll go out on a limb and answer my own questions -- I think it's because percentage-wise there are far more in our society who enjoy alcohol (I'm saying this in all sincerity) responsibly, than there are for those who support individual gun ownership (legally and responsibly). And yes, the country did have an experiment with alcohol prohibition nearly 100 years ago. Really, why aren't the anti-gun folks (assuming they're genuinely working towards greater public safety) taking similar stances on alcohol, backyard swimming pools, and similar things that kill thousands of innocent people every year?
If we're 'thinking of the children', we might also want to ban alcohol, matches/lighters, swimming pools, etc.
"Its just a hobby, you folk don't have the right to cause 50,000 deaths a year for your hobby"
Change 'hobby' to 'social drinking'. How about we take this logic and apply it to alcohol (as it relates to deaths due to drunk driving)? Any takers? If not, why not?
Subject/citizen, you should not be concerned about your rights when it comes to security and law enforcement. But, we need legal remedy for business decisions that impact our nice retirement funds. Yeah...
Don't forget the rock star part.
I was going to say something like that, but you beat me to it you insensitive clod!
No one is interested in spying on me you insensitive clod!
And get the hell off my lawn!
I'm sure cowboy neal is a fine statesman and excels in international diplomacy.
