Yes. Thing is, we don't blame cars when a drunk driver kills people, do we?

No, but we implement legislation intended to control people under the influence of alcohol from driving a car.  The effectiveness of questionable but most people would agree that it has reduced drink driving.  

I agree with your point about the 2nd amendment and the formation of an armed militia.  The US Army/Airforce would never allow a civilian full access to its more advance weaponry.

I realise he’s dead but Justice Scalia and no doubt his originalist successor interpreted the right to bear arms very broadly: tanks, aircraft they’re as much allowed as a musket. 

We should be very worried about Elon Musk. 

any chance  of these screen prints....

I was wrong about tanks - it was hand carried anti-aircraft missiles which he felt were possibly under the protection of the constitution's right to bear arms.

But I suppose there are handheld rocket launchers that can bring down airplanes that will have to be — it will have to be decided.

Clicky do

True, suppose the answer is to arm all children.

NO the answer is to TRAIN ALL CHILDREN in the "correct" use of firearms. FFS (my grandson thirteen years old) started with a crossbow and is now being taught by professionals how AND WHEN to use firearms.

Guess you don't understand the concept of sarcasm. I'm not really advocating the arming of children, just trying to highlight America's bonkers attitude to guns.

The actual answer is to not let children have unsupervised access to live firearms.

Rights come with responsibilities.

Which is the crucial factor that some seem to forget.

Also, which "...well regulated Militia" was the 9 year old part of?

An armed twinkle is a scary thought. Especially as his name seems to be For Fuck's Sake.
