Yeah, because the second amendment gives people the right to kill others!(were you born this stupid?) We should do away with the Second Amendment so this type of tragedy never happens again! Then we should do away with the First Amendment while we're at it! Then the Third... and the Fourth... Rights have no place in a free society!!

Way more folks abuse the welfare system, yet you advocate for an ever increasing amount of handouts.

Union's engage in all sorts of abusive practices, yet you think they are great. Classes had to be cancelled in two school districts today cause hundreds of teachers didn't show up and decided they wanted to attack right to work supporters who set up a tent. That would get you fired in almost any other setting. They are special, tho, just ask them ... they will tell you. And of course it's all about the kids and what's in their best interest. It was really in these kids best interest to miss school, right? Not to mention all the working parents who had to miss work or scramble to find childcare. They care so little for everyone else, but themselves, and then expect everyone to support them having greater rights when it comes to employment than everyone else. Hubris...

The union thugs even resorted to violence. Tore down right to work supporter tents and attacked them. How many violent tea party protests have you heard of?

I guess by your thinking since a few of them are bad apples, we should do away with unions ... or does that only work when you are against something and not in favor of it?

I think edog mentioned something about the left's hypocrisy. Thanks for proving his point, good buddy.

Well, the 3rd maybe because it's about being forced to house soldiers in your home in peace time or war time.

I didn't say to do away with the 2A. Clearly, it needs to be re-worked. Times have changed and not necessarily for the better.

You kinda went off half-cocked there, didn't ya?

I can't give you a big 10-4 here because my post wasn't about unions- at all. Which post were you responding to?

A few a'holes abuse the second amendment and you say it needs to be reworked. Tons of people abuse welfare and you want more of it. Unions and their members abuse their positions all the time and you love them.

If it something you support, you couldn't care less if its abused ... if anything you want more of it ... If its something you don't support and their are isolated instances of abuse, you ARE QUICK TO JUMP ON IT and say we need to reform it to prevent this abuse.

Welfare isn't out shooting up malls, theaters, schools, etc.

Is this one of those Fox news things where it's "too soon to talk about it"?

It doesn't matter what the issue is. You are always going to have folks who abuse things. That doesn't mean you always need reform.

Absent a complete ban on guns and removing all the guns, which would be next to impossible, you will never be able to stop the rare person who snaps and does that. About the only thing we can do is prevent folks with criminal records and who have shown mental instability from buying them. I think that's already the case. What more would you want to do?

Lovely. The mall I worked at for over a decade had a nut job shoot the place up a couple hours ago.
They've closed the mall and are looking for people who might still be hiding out. Shooter is dead, one injured and two dead aside from the shooter.
Happened just a few doors away from where I worked, all three stores are/were grouped around that one.
SO glad I wasn't working there tonight!
Thinking about you while watching the news. Then I saw you being active on FB, so I quit worrying. ;-)

Yeah, and I've started moving in. Little bits and pieces of kitchen and bathroom stuff, some drinks in the fridge, snacks. I want to take some books over, but not sure where I'll put them yet.

I gave nick the camcorder (wrapped AND in a gift bag!). As he tore the paper off (plain cardboard box underneath), I asked him if he knew what it was. He said he had no idea. He loved it! He will figure it out tonight/tomorrow night, get it charged, then use it at Alex's hockey thing on Thursday (and I can't go b/c I have other plans I can't change, so I can watch the good parts and skip the rest).

I asked if I get a point for including the boys' mom in choosing the gift (ease of use means he can have her film the boys when he's busy coaching them in baseball). He said I get mega points.

Then we went out for expensive burgers at a place I loved but now I'm tired of, and came home and he fixed my computer (I didn't know it was bad, but he found 5or 6 bad things on it).

Bedtime.

My classical station from London has a classical music album( are they still called albums?) called 50 Shades of Grey which is one of its Top 10

It's not already the case. At least 60% of gun sales are made at gun shows which don't do background checks. That's reform that needs to happen.

So why don't we reuire gun insurance like we require car insurance. Make the coverage run with the product The initial requirement would be on the manufacturer and first distributor or seller( store or gun show).After that it would be on teh registered owner. The only way you could get out of buying insurance would be to have a valid bill of sale and teh buyer show he has coverage. Same kind of card as we all have for car insurance.
This would not interfere with teh right to own and carry but would put teh cost of injury on the people responsible for safe usage of the guns.

Just a thought

I think it's a very good idea.
