If I may post my final conclusion on THIS topic, knife attacks IN THIS COUNTRY result in fewer deaths than gun related deaths----by far.

I find the author's stats troubling. The 2000-2008 stats show that 67% of murders were gun related, while 13% were knife related, in THIS country.......

I see why you do this, it is simple and fun. "Well, I suppose this would be a good point to stop crying and ask, did you google and paste from Wikipedia the statistics on knife deaths propagated by the letter writer? If not, please refer to my post earlier where I actually consider that to be useful research.Talk about completely clueless, not everyone can google and claim it as research. Holy cow."

Fixed it again. "LOL, this is why I quote - some of you say the most profound things. Now it takes "testosterone" to pick a stance? So I really have to be a man about this? I'm bat**** crazy"

Fixed this one to. "Actually, outside of la-la land we call that, "being decisive". It is psychologically hard to do for me. I should try it sometime though."

Here I fixed it. "Redundantly, I sadly have to repeat that you've clearly read my posts. Considering yours are 100% correct, I must lower my self worth".

"You are yet another example of a useless member of society. Someone who chooses to ponder things and philosophize as opposed to research and act for the betterment of humans."

Well, I suppose this would be a good point to stop laughing at you and ask, did you research the statistics on knife deaths propagated by the letter writer? If not, please refer to my post earlier where I actually researched them. Talk about completely clueless. Holy cow.

"You claim to be far from anti-gun but make critical comments towards pro-gun posters."

Actually, outside of la-la land we call that, "being objective". It is psychologically hard to do for humans to be objective. Try it sometime though.

"Therefore you lack the testosterone to pick a stance."

LOL, this is why I quote - some of you say the most absurd things. Now it takes "testosterone" to pick a stance? So I really have to be divisive? You're bat**** crazy.

Maddog - did I hurt your feelings with that question?

"Since you start all your posts with a quote from someone else. You have nothing original to add to this conversation."

Redundantly, I sadly have to repeat that you've clearly not read any of my posts. Considering yours are 100% rhetoric and ad hominem, I must lower my expectations.

Irony simply a fun fact to share with others. You wouldn't understand because it requires a personality. The manufacturer has no importance to the short story. I found the knifes fascinating and chose to share with others. Besides I am not pigeon holed in Jamestown. I knew my story would draw out the simple minded who are incapable of thinking for himself. If your going to share information try to make it interesting. Unlike yourself you bore others to death. Have a nice evening dult.

A madman with a machete in a room full of first graders could kill them all. Even in a room full of adults he would do very well. Unlike the Arabs, we respond like sheep, not wolves. We should learn from them. Meet aggression with immediate harsher aggression. Thirty old people throwing everything not nailed down at a guy will severely mess up his plan to make them a restaurant full of victims. Regardless of his weapon.

Why would I define something after agreeing or disagreeing with it? Here is what I have learned about you. Since you start all your posts with a quote from someone else. You have nothing original to add to this conversation. You claim to be far from anti-gun but make critical comments towards pro-gun posters. Therefore you lack the testosterone to pick a stance. You claim to be pro wisdom or truth and anti lies or stupidity yet you spout nothing but opinions. The only thing oozing from your yap is BS. It's not just oozing, it's spewing, and filling this forum. You are yet another example of a useless member of society. Someone who chooses to ponder things and philosophize as opposed to research and act for the betterment of humans.

"Do you always talk in circles and never really say anything?"

If my posts have been "talking in circles" you must struggle with drawing circles. Did the teacher ever ask why little Maddog was drawing straight lines?

I suppose an easy question: do you agree with common-sense gun regulation? If so, what would you define as such?

"We were at a manufacturing facility today..."

What one was that, may I ask?

We were at a manufacturing facility today that manufactures highend knifes made from a single piece of stainless steel billet. $500 each. They are building and selling a new twist on thee switchblade that when u push the button the blade screams out but doesn't lock until you flip your wrist to lock it. There building brass knuckles out of titanium. The blades on there knifes have blood grooves to make it easier to thrust into someone's chest. That's what I call up close and personal. It's all legal to sell as they can't make the stuff fast enough. Is it legal to posess? Don't know

By switching the words you are ultimately saying that gun laws or no gun laws, things would stay the same. If that is what you consider facts or "wisdom" you are a moron

Just change the word "legalized" to "illegal". There, looks great. Only took two words, huh.
