commented on Gun Deaths Are Different
I'm not buying Goldy's retort.
Call it a strawman if you will, although there is no epidemic of limo deaths in this country, there is an epidemic of children drowning.
Drowning is the number one cause of death in children 4 years and under, yet there is no hue and cry to ban bathtubs.
Why? Because as I've said before, this isn't about saving lives. It's about banning guns.
Why? Because you don't like them.
commented on Middle-Age Americans Offing Themselves in Record Numbers
I'm kind of surprised that the author actually said the words, 'shooting themselves with a gun.'
In SLOG parlance, the shooter is never responsible for killing the victim. It's always, 'He/she was killed by a gun.'
Charles should at least stick with the narrative and say that the suicide victims were killed by guns. You know, because it's the guns that do the killing.
I often wonder why the SLOG doesn't report drunk-driving homicides as, 'The bicyclist was killed by a Chevrolet."
