    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?

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

    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    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.
