I think America's left likes to place accountability on inanimate objects instead of people. Guns kill people. 2 liter sodas make people fat (thanks to Idiot Bloomberg for that gem).

While it may be true that people kill people, how do they do it? With lethal weapons, such as guns.

Cain killed his brother with a stone.

If indeed guns kill people, why do we have prisons for people, again? Either the people do, or they use tools and the tools do it. You never judge something by its abuse- if you did, water and cars would be banned.

Cain as in Cain and Abel? If so, why use mythology as a reference? That's like me randomly stating Zeus killed titans with lightning, it serves no purpose.

You fail to listen. People kill people, but the method often used is a gun. People pull the trigger, the gun fires and the bullet kills the victim. That's how it works.

How things are said sometimes matters more than what is said. Saying that basically was my way of telling you that people kill others with anything. Anything can be used.

No, that's all that needs to be said. People kill people. Guns don't sprout legs and pull their own triggers. Someone else did it. Guns do more good than harm because more gun wielders have good intents rather than malicious ones. Besides, banning guns to stop crime is like banning the stealing of money in order to prevent bank robberies.

Sometimes, but not in this case. Referencing a myth holds no credibility over political or social policies.

People kill people with those guns. Yes, many are good and law abiding. But even among the law abiding, accidents happen and guns are stolen from them. Intent is only one factor.
Stealing money is banned, it's called robbery. So based on what you just said, saying banning guns to stop crime is like banning robbery to stop robbery? Think before you talk.

No, but it was a different way of saying the same thing. It flows better.

No offense to you, but you're deep as a piece of paper. Murder and robbery are already illegal. Murderers who use guns are kind of already criminals, and so gun control will be meaningless. Laws are meant to apply to those who will actually follow them. You think a bank robber is going to stop robbing banks because stealing money is suddenly illegal? It's about as likely as a murderer that will stop killing people because he's using an illegal weapon without a license. Oh, but his/her victim who would ordinarily be armed to stop them? Yeah, they were foolish enough to follow the law. You want to stop violence, go deeper. The fact that the existence of a psychopath who thinks that murdering a group of children is okay... THAT'S the real problem that should be solved in the first place, isn't it?

Maybe in your mind.

Deep as paper? That's a new one. Not funny, but new.

Gun control is meaningless because criminals disregard the law? So what are you proposing, that guns be unregulated and not controlled? That's one of the principles of militaristic anarchy.

Stealing money is already illegal, it can't get "suddenly" illegal. So saying that banning robbery wont stop robbery makes no sense.
There are more ways of defending yourself, property and others without guns. I'll give you a quick rundown.
-knives
-baseball bats
-tire irons
-pool cues
-chairs
-spears
-swords
-bow and arrow
-crossbow
-explosives
-attack dogs
-chemicals
-hot oil
-heavy paper weights
-stun rods
-your own body
I could go on and on. Dangerous people have always existed and people have always been able to defend themselves without guns, why do we suddenly need them now? Does their possession of a gun somehow make them magically immune to peoples resistance attempts? Of course not. You WANT guns, you DON'T need them.

Thing is, you cannot cure a psychopath. You cannot always tell if someone is before hand. Guns will not and does not change that simple fact.
