Why is it even so crucial to you and more importantly, why are you asking me? I'm not an expert on the aesthetics behind statism or anarchism, nor am I going to waste my time trading barbs with someone over an older-than-dirt issue that no one ever agrees upon. Mr. X often seems to back up his claims with studies regarding the issue. I suggest you do the same. Try Google Scholar. I've already used it to double check that there is no scientific correlation whatsoever between gun ownership and penis size, so I can vouch for its reliability in certain departments.
Do you see what I see with Mr. X? He keeps asking the question over and over and over and over and over again and I responded every time. If I answer with the legit reasoning he expects me to be God or something and put more reasoning when there isn't anymore. Then if I say drop the laws he will preach to me and want more reasoning behind it. What should I do about it?
Just a comment on the president thread, but saying Obama doesn't deserve credit because he didn't shoot Osama in the head is like saying Osama doesn't deserve credit for 9/11 because he wasn't the one flying the planes.
