Crimes against logic?

    Doubling down, I see. This is exactly what I don’t like about libertarianism. Principle before all else.

    • Good point — pragmatism before principle, but what is the pragmatic (as opposed to knee-jerk) thing to do in this case (in terms of actual number of lives saved)? I would be more worried about teens texting while driving than with teens shooting each other!

    Yet it is illegal in many communities to text and drive, but alas colleges can’t prevent people from toting guns on their campuses! Can you deny the power of the NRA?? Comparing gun laws to driving is comparing apples to oranges and a very very very easy cop-out!!!!!

    I guess you “win” Enrique. Safer roads for all. Everyone is so clamoring for safer roads as a result of the umpteenth school shooting. As if people are driving their cars on I-95 intending to mow down as many other cars as they can. Your position is still fallacious and your stance remains insenstive. I am upset with you, Enrique, and children should be too.
