    “No-one would tell me what aisle I could pick one up in.”

    I know what you mean. Several times I have seen a good specimen in a shopping cart and asked for the aisle location. The greedy women refuse to answer, just smile push by.

    So if every murder which happened with use of a gun did not happen, there would have only been 5,192 murders in the USA in the year 2020. (Also assuming no murders were avoided because of fear someone might kill the one wishing to kill with an axe, knife, sword, garrote, club or hands.)

    Using that philosophy, if you could remove the exact bullets used to kill, none of those firearm homicides would have happened. If you could have effectively outlawed the exact knives or other tools used to kill, the 5,192 other murders would not have happened.

    It seems a stretch, but we do know access to better tools makes more attempted tasks successful.

    “Where is that statistic from and what year is it for?”

    He told you: “this year (24,576)” The year 24,576 AD

    (Okay, maybe I should be serious, but it was interesting to think about a time traveler coming back to join in the discussion.)

    “Perhaps you’ve never met a geode.”

    I saw a beautiful one at the entrance of a supermarket in Rio many years back. It had to be over six feet in diameter in a small pool of water and lights showing off the blue crystals. I thought, “In a grocery store??”

    Most impressive.

    The name stays the same, the comment which follows is apt to change.

    “you can’t take out an entire grocery store or classroom with ‘em”

    I CAN. I choose not to.
