You hate the right to own guns too huh?

I put my gun in a case, my knife in a locked drawer, I keep the keys to my car and my car doors locked and learned how to drive, I watch my pc for virus and run a firewall as well as leaving nothing worthwhile on it.


I think you just put up the worst argument in history.

I love guns, I love knives, I love cars, doesn't mean I'm going to be an idiot and let a child play with them, or give them to someone untrustworthy.

The argument he provided was they -could- be used maliciously. As could all the items you listed. Not to mention not everyone is like you.

Once again, not everyone is like you. Just as many legit businesses used Amazon's cloud.

To avoid a million bumps, I'll just edit this post with your response.

If you're a true gun enthusiast you should know better than to use what little current rights we have as a battering ram on any argument.
What? I'm pointing out that he says this shouldn't be allowed because it can be used maliciously, as can guns. Relax and think out your posts, please.

and I would say we should hold amazon responsible for keeping an eye on there servers.

I am not however saying they are to blame.
So - DPS should monitor every single driver on their road 24/7? They're responsible for public safety after all.

The only thing worst than having your private information illegally taken is to have it legally taken.
