The culture of immorality, violence and complancency we created is also inundating our children through the medium of movies, television and video games resulting in an emotional vacuum among the younger generation.
I'm not sure what we expected would happen.
It's a simple and obvious connection. Garbage in, garbage out.
No, you're not alone, there's all kinds of crazy stupid out there.

Then you need to be more specific when invoking Reagan in a national forum. Did you know he was also President?
Of course I know that. Who could forget the Iran-Contra scandal and his brilliant statement that "trees cause more pollution than automobiles do"? He's right down there in the bottom of the presidential garbage can with George Bush.

Fox Attacks Obama’s Anti-School Shooting Policy Before Anyone Knows What It Is

Fox News may have broken some kind of record tonight when, after President Obama finished his address in Newtown, Connecticut at a vigil for the school shooting victims, Fox's “fair and balanced” panel began attacking President Obama’s forthcoming policy to prevent such tragedies before anybody knew what it was. It may well have been before Obama even formulated it.

When this animal shot himself in the head he cheated capital punishment advocates out of the best argument they ever had. After this I've had to ask myself, Are we really obligated to keep scum like this alive in our penal system? Or, even worse, must we release mentally ill back into society if we find a medication that renders them harmless after they massacre our children?
Let's ask the people letting John Hinkley out for little vacations that question.

<quoted text>If you gun nuts are really law abiding, then you will voluntarily turn them in when the ban is implemented like the good citizens in England did. If not, then you will be a criminal, which you probably are anyway. If you weren't you wouldn't want to own a gun anyway.
Interesting point. Are they only law abiding if they agree with the law?

Washington DC. Money in, garbage out. Society no. Small government hypocrites yes.
It has nothing to do with politics. It has everything to do with us. We created this environment through our complacency and losing our moral compass and not even trying to find it.

Garbage in, garbage out. The connection is obvious.

Yup, you and the rest of the nutcases, Dobson, Ficsher, Huckabee,
the Westboro group, you're all birds of a feather.
A massacre happens and you blame it on gay marriage and abortion.
Anything to promote your pushing your religion on everyone.
Can't you people ever just give it up for one effing day and let these people alone to mourn their childrens death? Have you no shame? It's sickening.

Why does John Galt, i.e. Nobama, run off whenever the subject matter becomes too real?
It would seem he'd rather ignore the rising waters and not make waves because it might rock the boat.
You can rock the boat without capsizing. It just wakes everyone up.
lol lol lol

wake them up? like how FOX helped Mitt win the election?

He's been here through the thick of it, maybe he has a life off of Topix. I happen to know for a fact that Nobama fights bears for a living, maybe there's a grizzly in the yard.

Perhaps the teachers need more, and enhanced training. How about both, teachers trained with firearms AND police? If a teacher shooses to remain unarmed, like I choose any and every time I leave my home, then that is a choice available to them.
And, then we can work on training our teachers to be better than producing the most expensive workforce in the industrialized world with the most expensive education system in the world.
Out of curiosity, why do you think we have the most expensive education system in the world adn produce the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world?
First you want to close the schools and fire the teachers, take their pensions, lower their salaries and now you want them to become body guards and carry guns?
What's next? Perhaps we can turn schools into military barracks and the kids can all wear army uniforms. Onward Christian soldiers and they can listen to Wagners Wahlspruch für die Deutsche Feuerwehr

Really stupid? What did he have a musket? No he was armed with an AR 15 which is classified as an assault rifle.
reports of the AR15 were false,it seems with current reports he had a bush master .308 wich is a hunting rifel.bolth are semi automatics but the bush master hunting rifel has more knock down power and range than the smaller avg so called asault rifel, civilan model .223 AR15. Not that the weapon maters at all , he could have done this same evil deed with a cheap wal mart .22
Reguardless it was the syco that did the killing. The guns did not grow legs and walk into that school.
Criminals and sycos don't tend to care about laws or gun bans, 10 shootings last night in chicago in a gun free city.

No one is going to ban guns if that is your worry.
Just useful to have the Republican Party known as the party of

the guns
and hating 47% of voters

thanks
