"Guns are very much like cars, and in fact as many or more people are killed every year in vehicle accidents. The only difference being, driving a car is a privilege while owning a gun is a right. You may not agree with this fact (and a lot of people don't) but that pesky 2nd Amendment is etched in stone. And as long as hardcore criminals walk among us and our open borders allow crazed and angry militants to enter our country, the original intent of the right to keep and bear arms is looking better every day."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
