... it's traditional use is in sheet metal work, so "Bob the Builder" may have only occasional use for such a hammer.

"Due to breast cancer, liberals are banning all breasts and removing them from all women."

The right stopped funding for detection and let women die from breast cancer.

"This also just in. Man suffers serious injury to thumb during demonstration of ballpin hammers at a hardware show. Victim now advocates banning all ballpins"

You were obviously dropped on your head at or near birth, and nobody seems to be calling for a ban on floors.

"I would like to note that first of all Mindy McCready was a drunk and a drug addict that just wanted to commit suicide. Second, if she didn't have a gun, she could as easily overdosed on drugs"

Really? What if she was addicted to marijuana? How exactly does one go about overdosing on marijuana?

Chris you forgot the report of Walmart shopper who was carrying a gun shot a shoplifter so the cops could track him. Tag and bag!

This just in:

"A school employee in east Texas was shot on Wednesday during a district-sponsored handgun safety training class that was designed to get more guns in public schools.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph on Thursday reported that Van Independent School District school board member Leslie Goode confirmed that “there was an accident involving one of the employees today.”

According to KLTV, multiple sources identified the employee as Glenn Geddie, a maintenance worker for the district."

So in Texas' haste to arm janitors, a school district will now have to face a lawsuit over an employee that was shot at school district sponsored training. Wonder how much this will cost taxpayers?

Hey Nobud, The reason many of our laws don't work is because they are not enforced. The reason they are not enforced is because if the gevernment ever solved a problem, it would not have a reason to pass even more laws and thus grow at an ever increasing rate. For those of you who think this is some kind of conspiracy theory, if you have a better explaination for why the laws we already have are not enforced, let's have it.

How about we just ban nuts, period? Like we ban anything else we don't understand. Hey, if there were a ban on nuts, those two kids and their grandmother would not have been killed yesterday in a double murder/suicide. We banned illegal drugs. We banned illegal firearms possession. We banned illegal entry to the US. We banned so many things. We have so many laws. And they work so effectively.

It is a "feel good" thing for them. The mentality is "If I don't understand it, ban it"

We should ban right wing nuts, I don't understand them, they make no sense, they have no logic.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Willard, its because it doesn't serve their needs. Truly, most of these polititions are trying to save their jobs or score political points. Being accurate or honest doesn't enter the situation. The Sandyhook and Gifford shooting are examples of mental illness as root cause (and possibley some parenting issues - excessive use of violent games, not getting enough help for illness), not guns. Why didn't we see such attention to Ft. Hood shooting, Mexican's killed from Fast and Furious (hundreds!, HUNDREDS) our boarder agent? Where they any less important? No, it didn't serve these people's self interests. Its sameful to me to see.

Willie, people blame guns because it's easy for them. They see guns as evil with the only reason for owning one is to take someones life.

It is a "feel good" thing for them. The mentality is "If I don't understand it, ban it".
