I heard someone say we should get rid of all gun crime. That sounds like a good idea to me. But then I thought: why stop with guns? Let’s get rid of all murders committed with guns, knives, baseball bats, cars, ropes, fire, fists, and every other tool of death up to and including wood chippers.
I’m not advocating we get rid of all guns, bats, cars, ropes, lighters, etc. I’m just saying let’s make laws stating that it is illegal to kill people with these things. I think we’d have a much better society if we had laws where it was illegal to kill people using any of these means.
While we’re at it, why don’t we just make laws making ALL crime illegal. That should fix the whole situation, right? Because if the answer to all this crime is more laws, that should solve it. What do you think?
