    The limits of the metaphor merely mean you need to pick a better metaphor to make your "clear point," given that the limits of the metaphor make it fail.

    That has nothing to do with children or sticks, which is why your metaphor fails to make any "clear point."

    We'll agree to disagree.
    While the metaphor is overly simple it makes a clear point.

    Edit: Can I assume we both agree that weapons..... with little to no benefit to society that can kill hundreds of people very quickly should not be readily available to the public?

    If sticks and knives and cars and water and guns are "all the same," "all capable of killing people...."

    Then why don't you arm yourself with sticks or knives, hmm?

    Because they are not "all the same," it's just another example of bogus NRA "reasoning."

    Thx

    A stick in the hand of a child is not an unalienable right protected from the government by the Constitution.

    In a fringe right "Lord of the Flies" society, all would be armed and equally deadly.

    Except I think most of the "Keyboard Heroes" on PH would shoot themselves in the foot or just run in a real crisis situation.
