    If it was about gum I would have laughed. ;~)

    If it was about guns there would have been an instant civil war fomented by you-know-who. Personally, I would have been 85% in favor of such a move.

    Gum violence, what a cretin!!
    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Please constrain your fantasies to things that are at least remotely realistic. You’re a fucking lawyer, can’t you find a real legal precedent?

The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It declares certain controversies over and visits serious consequences from social ostracism to vocational defenestration upon those who refuse to be silenced".-Charles Krauthammer

    Yeah, right! Articles of impeachment would have been filed the next day.
    SEP 2016: Obama asked McConnell to co-write a LETTER of CONDEMNATION of Russian interference
    into the upcoming election and to alert US. The CIA DIR
    had briefed BOTH parties Congr'l leaders of the same.

    McConnell told Brennan,
    “You’re trying to screw the Republican nominee.”

    McCONNELL REFUSED to sign the letter.

    The rest is history!

    That we should ban all GUM that looks like a bullet.

    I'd say you're comparing apples to oranges, but that would be giving this analogy far too much credit. You're comparing apples to radio controlled cars.

    I would have applauded him for having the courage to take on GUM violence. There are too many GUM related deaths in America.

    To him to stop chewing gum since it isn't good for his teeth. He would have to start gumming the bananas if he didn't.
