    Unfortunately, there is not too much we can do to stop a nut job from killing indiscriminately. Using cold (and maybe callus) hard logic, it is clear that the numbers of deaths from what the FBI...

    It appears that we would save more people if we banned cars, hands, feet, and the ever present blunt object. All of those things cause more deaths than assault weapons. So says the FBI.

    I agree with BSCustoms, but the question is how do you hold the drill using only a 3 or 4 jaw chuck so that you can turn it?
