Government should ban ALL......

white Ford F250s.....
more people killed BY one F250 than at the Batman movie shooting...

Quote:
GOLIAD, Texas (AP) — A pickup truck overloaded with passengers veered off a highway and crashed into trees in rural South Texas, killing at least 13 people and leaving 10 injured, authorities said.

Gerald Bryant, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said the 23 passengers, were crammed inside the truck's cab and bed, including at least two young children whom he saw among the dead after the Sunday evening crash.

"This is the most people I've seen in any passenger vehicle, and I've been an officer for 38 years," Bryant said, referring to the chaotic scene in Goliad County.

The white 2000 Ford F-250 pickup was heading north on U.S. 59 on Sunday evening when it drove off the right side of the highway near the unincorporated community of Berclair in Goliad County and struck two large trees, Bryant said. Berclair is about 100 miles southeast of San Antonio.

Banning Assualt Rifles will not do one bit of good, except make it where sane law abiding citizens can't get one. Does making cocaine illegal stop it from being used and sold?Whitjo you are exactly right!

And let's play the other angle. You see, there are already laws against carrying that many passengers in a truck like that.

The correlating argument would be right-winger's screaming that the government is infringing on their rights to carry as many people as they want in a passenger vehicle or light-duty truck. And that this is just an isolated case, and that the liberals are using this incident as a conspiracy to keep these traffic laws in place and to force big brother on all of us.



Doesn't matter if it's right or left.... arguments from both extremes begin to look ridiculous.

You guys and your... "we shouldn't have any laws, because not everyone will obey them" ...argument is asinine.

What is asinine is going after such a small subset of the "problem". If you really want to fix the homicide problem via gun control why not go after the handguns? There are many more homicides committed using handguns than all other firearms combined.

Kind of like how Reagan went after fully automatic weapons after being shot by a 22.

The root of the problem is not guns, trucks, etc, it is the people. What were the responsible culprits of both incidents??? People. A person manned the wheel of the truck, and a young clown manned the semi automatic weapon in Colorado.


there is a big difference between automatics and semi automatics btw.

Even more asinine is the notion that laws to regulate every single aspect of a citiizen's life can or will bring society to a Marxist type utopia where everyone "spreads the love around"

Re: Government should ban ALL......

In addition if those who wrote the laws and made the laws would follow the laws, we would only be half as messed up. Put it another way, the lawmakers don't follow the laws they have in place now, so what is the point? It sure doesn't teach the next generation anything, but to be lawbreakers. Comprende, Candypants?

So are you saying that since it was Reagan that, in essence, banned automatics that it is ok?

If Reagan can ban automatics why can't Obama or others ban "assault" rifles?

Not what i was Implying at all. No firearm should be banned, I was just pointing out their is a big difference between the two ( semi's and autos). Cause people from this incident are believing this was an automatic that was used, and it wasn't.
