LOL, man that link had some of the best examples of bad logic that I've seen in a long time!Quote:
A few selections from firearms demystified
To name a few of the many:
Faulty Cause and Effect/Inability to understand things can have multiple causes! How in the world did having guns at hardware stores keep people from shooting at schools? How does fingerprinting/etc allow shooting at schools now??Quote:
The ready availability of guns today, with waiting periods, background checks, fingerprinting, government forms, et cetera, is responsible for recent school shootings,compared to the lack of school shootings in the 40's, 50's and 60's, which resulted from the availability of guns at hardware stores, surplus stores, gas stations, variety stores, mail order, et cetera.
Taking things to their illogical conclusion! No explanation needed here.Quote:
Guns cause violence, which is why there are so many mass killings at gun shows.
Bad analogy! Maybe we should just disallow EVERYTHING the majority wants! Besides, without a statistic to back that claim up, I don't believe that the majority of the people DID support owning slaves.Quote:
A majority of the population supports gun control, just like a majority of the population supported owning slaves
Just a few, theres more but I'm out of time and I've made my point :)
