Vestal: Nailing Down Hammer Analogy

Perhaps you’ve come across the latest low-water mark in our debate about guns. It is the assertion – made recently in Spokane City Council chambers and at a public forum in Coeur d’Alene, as well as in the echoing void of the all-guns-at-all-costs universe – that hammers kill more people than assault weapons. Hammers! Outrageous! See how impossible – how utterly, completely hopeless – it is to even consider limiting assault weapons, which hardly even kill anyone, really, when you compare them to hammers? Hammers kill more people than assault rifles. If only it were true/Shawn Vestal, SR. More here.

DFO: You can have my hammer when you pry it from the tool belt on my cold, dead body?

Question: Do you harbor any lethal hammers on your property?
