I am hoping Rand Paul runs for President in 2016. Either way, he gets my vote.

Jesse Jackson said "assault weapons" can shoot down airplanes! I want that new weapon system! Not for shooting down airplanes, but for taking care of the coyote problem in my area! The farmers would love me!!

Airplanes were taken down with box cutters,maybe we need a ban on them.

I didn't think about it that way...I guess if you shot a pilot that would effectively be shooting down theairplane...

Have you tried to take one on an airplane lately?

Go try. I'll wait.

I did indeed. Don't let my smartassery cause you to miss my point though.

There is a de facto ban on box cutters in airports right now. America has a default setting.

When a bad person does a bad thing we focus on what they used and then try to ban it. Oddly, bad people don't seem to care about the bans. After 911 someone tried to bring on a shoe bomb, now I have to take off my shoes when I fly. The absurdity of the situation and utter uselessness is never overturned by our "leaders".

Lol, what was the ratio in WW2 of shooting down airplanes? Quad mounted .50 cal machine guns, and it was like thousands of rounds per plane.
