52. 'Only the' [fill in insult here] believe'

You said:
Only the ridiculous believe

This is like one of those ufo boards where people ridicule those with other views backed up by available evidence by stating that 'only (insult) believe' - and here you are. Congrats.

And then you go on to describe failed suicides as 'brain damaged vegetable makers' completely failing to understand the various ways in which people try to commit suicide unsuccessfully. This discounts bridge jumpers, wrist slashers, pill takers, car fume sniffers, - actually, I think the survivors of attempted suicides more than likley go on to lead successful and happy lives with no sign of clinical brain damage at all. But you don't have any information to back your assertion up. Naturally.

Only the silly think

Reducing tools that help in suicide reduce the risk of suicide by that tool. This is basic logic. If some people killed themselves with egg cups and you removes egg cups, there would be less suicides by egg cups. Denying this is, to use your words 'ridiculous and silly'.

'Tool elimination' is another goal post moved. Because its impossible to remove all guns, there is no point to this as an issue. This isn't even the same conversation. You may continue the argument of whether guns can be removed or not with someone who wishes to have that conversation.

You said:
Guns have nothing to do with who or how many wish to commit suicide.

And you would have nothing to get worked up about if that was true.
