    Perhaps we should repo all the handguns and pass out baseball bats so they can bludgeon each other to death... putting to an end to this endless debate "guns kill people" bs. If that doesn't work, give 'em toilet bowls with directions on how to drown someone on the john. (and then see if they claim toilet bowls kill people and demand that toilet bowls be bannished)
