Ever since then I have been thinking of the fallacy of the gun nuts argument and kept coming back to something I had read once on a webpage.
IF you hold that their argument is true
Guns don't kill peopleTHEN this argument must also be true
People kill people
Toasters don't toast breadSo according to the gun nuts ...
Bread toasts bread
You can throw away your toaster
cause your bread will toast itself.
THEN this argument must also be true
Vacuum cleaners don't pick up dirtSo according to the gun nuts ...
Dirt picks up dirt
You can throw away your vacuum cleaner
cause your dirt will pick itself up
And so forth and so forth and so forth ...
