You completely changed my point. I didn't say a car is not a car
, or a shoe
is not a shoe.
I said, by the logic that a gun is not a weapon
unless it is used a such, a car is not a vehicle
unless it's being driven, a hammer is not a tool
unless it's hitting nails and a sneaker
is not a shoe unless you're wearing it.
Of course a "car" is a "car", a "shoe" is a "shoe" and a "gun" is a gun".
By your logic, a car is not a vehicle
unless it's being driven. It's the exact
same logic that a gun is not a weapon
unless it's being used as one.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
