I don't like guns either. But I also don't want them in the wrongs hands and innocent people at their mercy.
Maybe we should address that problem.
Where'd the shooter get the guns?

The bashing of elected leaders began before Obama became the president. It grew in intensity beginning in 2000.
But violence among the younger generation goes deeper than that.
We have become much too self-centered and self-absorbed as a society and our children are fast becoming the wild children like in Lord of the Flies because we stopped caring and being good role models.
It's how do we stop doing it that's the challenge.
It grew in intensity in the 90's with the establishment of Fox "News", the rise of right-wing talk radio, and the GOP spending billions trying to get ANYTHING on Clinton. Don't you remember Rush calling Chelsea Clinton "the White House dog"?

Piss off, not reading any more of your BS.
You're not even asking yourself why these terrible things are happening with our young people - suicides, murder, bullying - and why they seem to be happening with more frequency? Or what has changed from three or four decades ago?

I gave you my explanations. Do you have any?

I can't believe you people. I sincerely put my heart out on my sleeve for all the world to see. I slit my wrists and said, "Topix world, this is my blood; its red and gay just like yours", and what do you do? You mock me.

The Westboro Baptist Church, the controversial group known for protesting outside funerals of slain U.S. service members, announced that it will picket a vigil for the victims of Friday's Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the second largest mass killing in American history.
Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokesperson for the group and, like most members of the organization, a relative of the group's founder, Fred Phelps, announced on Twitter on Saturday the group's plan "to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment."

Where do your homies get theirs? In 2011, there were 103 gang related murders in Chicago alone. Where's your outrage at that?

Yes and it coincided with the Evangelical intrusion into politics in the 70's and 80's. I think Evangelicals should start doing as their Bible instructs them to do.
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven."
Some of your good friends from the Westboro Baptist Church are planning an atrocity in Newtown tomorrow, are you joining them?
Totally agree, those Westboro people are the worst swine I have ever seen

We can't stop the irrational hatred if you won't acknowledge what was said about a certain vice-presidential candidate's children.

Rush Limbaugh takes out his frustrations with a big microphone and a big mouth. Someone needs to tell him to chill out.

But does that mean only one side is guilty?

What about Dan Rather lying about Bush and losing his job because of it?

Do you want only one side to be heard when they are as guilty of what you accuse Fox?

The "war" on drugs.
Tend to agree with you, at least for some drugs, but there are other areas where the police are abusive and offensive as well. Start with red light cameras, speed traps, highway checkpoints, computer entrapment stings, etc.

Many are stolen from peoples homes. Two police officers in Miami were arrested for selling illegal guns; 600 guns, they were a married couple.

Romney got more votes than McCain.
A fiscally conservative party that avoids issues like religion, abortion, sexual preference, and marriage would do better. None of these issues belong in the political forum. Avoiding these issues would leave the Democrats with little to talk about.

You are talking ridiculous stuff when you accuse others of having "blood on their hands" because of the actions of a lunatic.

If you feel responsible, do what you feel is necessary.

Its already been conceded here that the Mother was an irresponsible gun owner, and that a lot of people (including her) paid with their lives at the hands of yet another video game-addicted, goth freak.

You?

One problem is referring to a 20-year old as a boy.

Teenagers who commit violent crimes should be treated as adults.
