In Response to Re: 500 children / year water the NRA Tree of Liberty.:
Let's assign an arbitrary positive value -- let's say $50. million -- of every shooting in which a serial felon is killed or taken out of action. Then apply that benefit against the cost of harmful shootings. That would compare to examining the statistics of an addicted gambler and subtracting all losses and costs of his/her gambling habit (including travel) from the "winnings" they have falsely represented to get the actual net loss that applies in the overwhelming no. of cases (otherwise there would be no casinos). So that's math.
It is morally depraved & quite despicable to have not identified enormous value for prevention of rapes, murders, assaults, & child abuse by the rightful use of fire arms. Many on these threads have a moral blind spot the size of Montana.

Projecting the size of one's own blind spot onto another in a political argument is soooo obvious and transparent and has long been recognized as cheap sleazy demagoguery.
As for an individual who would place a dollar value upon a human life and propose to set up a balance sheet based upon that proposition, I would consider that individual to be an example of the very acme of moral turpitude and ethical degeneracy.
