I know the left has been pushing trains as a “green” form of transportation, but trains kill people and clearly they’re another thing that’s just too dangerous for society to be allowed to have.

Man Is Pushed to His Death Under Train in Queens
By THE NEW YORK TIMES
A young woman pushed a man to his death under an oncoming train at the 40th Street-Lowery Street subway station in Queens on Thursday evening, law enforcement authorities said.
The woman walked behind the man along the platform, mumbling to herself, witnesses told the police, before shoving him into the path of a northbound No. 7 train just after 8 p.m. Witnesses said the victim did not appear to notice her. The woman, whom the police described as Hispanic, in her early 20s and heavyset, fled and was being sought by all police officers in the area.
She was wearing a blue, white and gray ski jacket, the police said, and gray Nike sneakers. The man, who had not been identified, remained underneath the subway train late Thursday evening, spokesmen for the Police and Fire Departments said.
It is the second time this month that a man has been killed after being pushed onto the subway tracks. Ki-Suck Han, 58, of Elmhurst, Queens, died under the Q train at the 49th Street and Seventh Avenue station in early December. Naeem Davis, 30, has been charged with second-degree murder in that case. A lawyer for Mr. Davis said that his client had been trying to push Mr. Han away after an altercation.
If liberals were honest, they’d say, “Of course guns don’t kill people; that’s asinine and anybody who thinks anything that stupid is asinine. People kill people with pretty much whatever is convenient – including the damn oncoming train. And of course the Constitution clearly guarantees that no cockroach shall infringe upon your individual right as a citizen to keep and bear your guns. You’ve got to be a complete dumbass to try to argue otherwise. And we need to come to an agreement on those two facts as a nation so we can come together and maintain our constitutional freedoms while doing something to keep dangerous weapons of ANY kind out of the hands of psychos.”
But they’re not honest. So we have the political equivalent of World War I-style trench warfare on guns and pretty much everything else.
So let’s apply their “logic” and start banning all passenger trains because they can be used by psychopaths to commit murders. Starting with Amtrack and the New York subway system.
Oh, we might start banning racial minorities, too. The first “train-waving murderer” was a black man and the second one was Hispanic. The same argument used to demonize guns actually works equally well with both of these groups, too. And if you talk about the Nazis – which stood for “National Socialist German Workers Party” (hint: which party is the “National Socialist American Workers Party” again????) – let’s remember they did both and first took away all the guns and then rounded up all the Jews who suddenly discovered they were absolutely defenseless.
You want to know what true liberals have had to say about guns?
Regarding disarming a nation as the Democrat Party wants to do:
“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi, Autobiography, page 446
Regarding the individual right to defend yourself against violence with a gun:
“If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.” – Dalai Lama, Seattle, May 15th, 2001
I suppose you can pardon their attitudes as two great men who spent their lives watching an oppressive force systemically crush their people after said oppressive force took their guns away from them.
Here’s a third for the heck of it:
“As we have seen, the first public expression of disenchantment with nonviolence arose around the question of “self-defense.” In a sense this is a false issue, for the right to defend one’s home and one’s person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law.” – “Where Do We Go From Here:Chaos or Community?” by MLK Jr.
Said Dr. King, registered gun owner and registered Republican in addition to being a man who would have had his address published for public shame as if he were some kind of criminal if he’d lived in New York this week. That of course was back in those good old days when “the right to defend one’s home and one’s person when attacked was guaranteed through the ages by common law.” Goof times, those ages past. Missing them already since Obama fundamentally transformed America.
Oh, that’s right. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was another one of those guys who took about a hundred beatings too many from an oppressive system that had the guns to go along with all the other force it had.
True liberals understand that the society that comes after your guns is going to be able to come after you and you won’t be able to do a damn thing about it when they do.
Which is to say that Gov. Andrew Cuomo – who has the virtue only of being more honest about his intentions than Obama is – is a fascist rather than any true liberal in any historically accurate sense of the term.
