I'm all for that, but only if they ban SUVs, too. Fuckin' Assault Vehicles.

I don't like those either. Everyone should drive a prius. Can we ban all fast foods too?

You might have to get a little more creative with that one.

I would support banning SUVs, but you may want to start with banning demolition derbies, as that might lower the impulse of people to specifically buy larger vehicles to increase the damage of the impact from them intentionally ramming their own vehicle into another, in the process of being completely unnecessary, while transporting themselves from one location to the next.

All those guns around the marathon did a lot of good, didn't they?

I've been patient with assholes before, but fuck you and your immediate politicization of that. Fuck you in every way possible.

That's the last time I ever let that son of a bitch get a response out of me.

You know, we have very strict anti-bomb laws. Just sayin'. Drinking Beverage

You're really going to go there too? Seriously? Those laws will be used to prosecute these assholes too.

Yes, but those laws, which are very clear and strong, did not prevent this.

Re: Another example of BS statistics and Strawmen, in the guns debate
I'm not saying laws will prevent every event. Just like posted speed limits don't stop all speeders. But those that break the laws or make an effort to break them, can be held accountable.

All the police, the national guard and every gun they have between them didn't stop this either.
