    Is it really this hard to equate things rationally? If someone entered a theatre and began fighting people how far would he get how many people would he kill, now stabbing people, now with a bolt action rifle, now with a semi-automatic, now with a full automatic, now with grenades, and now with a tank etc etc.... Fairly simple if you ask me.

    HEY PIERS , IF YOU ARE GOING TO ARGUE GUN CONTROL, SHOULDNT YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT GUNS, IT IS HILARIOUS WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT GUNS ,BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE A CLUE ABOUT GUNS, AND FOR THE RECORD THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ASSAULT RIFLE , IT IS MERELY A LIST THAT SOMEBODY MADE UP TO TRY AND START SOME GUN CONTROL WITH A SELECT FEW RIFLES AND PISTOLS. THERE ARE MANY MORE POWERFUL RIFLES THAN AN AR -15 . IF YOU KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT GUNS YOU WOULD KNOW THAT. THE PROBLEM IS , YOU ARE A KNOW IT ALL BRIT, THAT ONLY WANTS TO ANNOUNCE YOUR OPINION AND NOT LET ANYONE ELSE TALK.. GUNS DONT KILL PEOPLE , PEOPLE DO

      Dana, the "assault rifle" term was originally made by Hitler in WWII. He coined the term when he saw the power a semi-automatic, 30 magazine rifle could inflict, as opposed to a bolt action or semi-automatic with a 6 round magazine. If don't believe me simply, look at the military network. I have always supported guns. But lets not be as crazy as to think a 30 round clip is of any hunting or protection needs...

    Your guest that talked over you incessantly really bothered me, so here's my rant.
    Civility seems to have been lost along the way side these days. There is a lot of behavior going on that is miles from the things people should learn in their early youth. Being considerate, being willing to listen to others opinions (even if you don’t agree), deescalating disagreements when they do happen (instead of escalating into loud anger and violence), being respectful of others (even if they aren’t being respectful), knowing how to share, holding one’s self to a high standard of personal conduct – these are no longer traits that are in abundance. Several generations of children have seen adults at home, at work, in government, and in the media, ignoring these traits and even glorifying the opposite ones as “being passionate about things.” That is not passion. That is loss of the ability to relate to one another in a positive way – loss of civility. This has now given us adults with inappropriate behavior (often acting like spoiled, egocentric children), who continue to teach their children the same behavior. There is nothing wrong with having an opinion, but you don’t beat others bloody with it and take away their freedom to have and voice their opinions. We have become so unaccepting, so unforgiving, so rude that we’re forgetting why our nation was founded. How can a man be free, if others around him are not? Isn’t that part of our heritage as Americans? Remember, Freedom comes with responsibilities.
    I feel better now that I have expressed my opinion. I will get off my soap box now.

      Very well said I must say,
      Does it not strike you that it seems those who are in a vunerable position seem to "attack" the fastest? I am not referring to Piers but the NRA supporter...was rather suprised that you saw him as the victim. To justify the use of semi-auto assault rifles and the right to own those things almost ALL of society is opposed to in the modern world? Of course outside of the u.s. that is... The states are such a poster child for gun safety. Please take off your blinders and look into other modern countries i.e. Canada, England, Austrailia, France, Spain and have a look at the RATIO...of big importance here, before you shoot me, the RATIO of population to ownership of guns to gun-related deaths... Absurd if one can not draw a correlation of some sort.
