It’s Not the Guns That Kill People

Comedian Jake Johannsen has a bit in which he explains that: It’s the not the guns that kill people. We all know it’s those darn bullets. Of course, the guns make them go really fast…

Should we allow the sale of guns to just about anyone even though those guns are often used (some models, primarily used) to send flying bullets in the direction of other people?

The Supreme Court plans to look at just this question, although in this case, the issue is not guns and bullets but rather file sharing networks and the stealing of music and movies.

Should file sharing networks be shut down just because some people choose to use them for nefarious purposes? This is just one of the issues that the Justices will be considering in case that could have a major impact on the future of file sharing.

Concentration is important!
