Comment: The argument doesn't necessarily

The argument doesn't necessarily

apply in this case. Inserting genes that ride into genetic material by a "shotgun blast", is not the same thing as cross pollination. Genetic expression is extremely complex, and not well understood. The potential for unintended consequences is off the scale. No one can see around that corner. In the headlines this week are cows with human genes, that produce milk that is part human. Aside from unexpected expression of proteins or toxins that could result from the method, there is concern that diseases will begin to cross the species barrier. I don't think that's a case of "guns don't kill people, people kill people".
