Other countries do not allow their citizens to own private firearms. Guess we'd better back off that Second Amendment thing until they're more like us. Same reasoning?
Other countries have high tariffs that keep out American products, therefore we should put high tariffs on THEIR products, forcing U.S. consumers to pay higher prices for foreign goods and funneling more money into our government's coffers. Screwing consumers and bloating government -- that's desirable? Same reasoning?
Here's a thought: let's do the right thing, and let the rest of the world copy us.
