Poison Control: Good or Bad?
 
I've always been a proponent of poison control.

Many of those on the right object, feeling that poison control infringes on their rights to own all kinds of deadly poisons.

They feel their family is safe from attack if would-be attackers think they may have poison.

What about you?

I agree, something must be done to control Poison! They are out of control!

(Oh crap, did I misread this thread too?) :D;)

I'm having trouble finding a reliable source of arsenic.

I'm a bit irritated by the whole process, actually.... It would be great if we could streamline it somehow.

I love you, Billy.


Although I really expected you to come out with a "Nuclear Weapons Control" thread. I think you're slipping. ;)

Thank you!

This was a great way to raise the point.

I love satire.:D

Yeah. Since the original thread did begin with a personal story, you could have at least made up some anecdotal evidence to entertain us.

Poisons often mean different things to urban and rural populations. Urban citizens seem to get their ideas of poison mostly from movies where they may be used against people by villains while rural people are more likely to know that most poisons that are used are critical for food production and keep everyones bellies full.

Great point!

Reminds me of how after the WTC bombing in the early 90's farmers had to jump through all kinds of legal hoops to buy their regular high-test fertilizer. It seems the FBI was worried anyone buying the stuff was trying to build a bomb.

Likewise, a machine shop with buckets of aluminum shavings and iron filings is pretty benign, while a group of anarchists with the same supplies could be cause for concern.

It's all relative and the big takeaway here is that when regulating all of this, we need to be careful not to respond to the first knee-jerk in the aftermath of as disaster and paint it all with too broad a brush.

A poison possessing society is a polite society.

Hey now, why are you prejudice against anarchists? Another word for anarchist is voluntarist. Would that sentence make any sense if you used the term voluntarists?

A better word would be militants then their is no ideological bias.

Most volunteers don't throw fire boms at banks and assassinate presidents and kings.
