With most of these shootings, knifings and bombings are perpetrated by males generally between the ages of 16 to 25 or so, to protect the broader society, federal and local legislators should consider institutionalizing all males between 16 and 25!

For the crimes of a minute few, we obviously need to ban all males between the ages of 16 to 25! That's how the anti-gun "logic" goes....

Ban all guns period is what they want. But what do we ban then when that doesn't work? They haven't thought that far ahead yet. Pass a law against killing people? Check.
