    I pulled the trigger on my response too soon. Ironic ain't it? You're right Adrian, the waiting period would have saved me two edits to my post.

    And another waiting period for my second post would have allowed me to get your edit too!

    This has been a very educational thread for both of us, I suspect.

    Bah! People don't go crazy and decide to buy a vest and kill people in a flash. It's a gradual build up and such a ban will do nothing but deter honest, law abiding, suicide vest enthusiasts.

    I am in support of requiring all purchasers to go to a range and demonstrate they know how to don and detonate a real suicide vest before they can purchase one, though.

    The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storm may enter; the rain may enter; but the King of England cannot enter – all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement! - William Pitt the Elder

    Um, yah, very educational.

    You even double-posted. That's radical, man.

    How do you feel about it?

    You should quit your job and dedicate your life to posting annoying smiley's it would be a waste not to max out such obvious talent.
