Subject: Guns for Immortality

Handguns can't beat machine guns.

Governments all have machine guns (and helicopters, armies, navies, etc.).

So I don't think handguns can control governments.

What about crime?

Handguns can shoot criminals - if you hit the criminal, and not a friend or 

Handguns have to be drawn, aimed accurately and fired to be effective.

Most people freak out then they are forced to use a handgun.

This interferes with aiming, especially.

That's why I'd rather face a handgun than a knife.

I would probably be missed by inaccurate shooting.

Knives are less likely to miss me.

Most people live and think the same way they drive on the highways.

Now THAT'S scarey!

It troubles me that these same drivers have access to handguns.

But not as much as knives.

Maybe we should let them keep the handguns and ban the cars instead!

Or maybe we should use guns to shoot all those bad drivers.

I know, I know.

That's genocide.

But (as I am cut off by another crazy driver) they ARE dying like flies anyway.

Shoot the mortals!  Guns for Immortality.

Just kidding.
