I wonder why his mom bought the guns, knowing how unstable her son was. (Neighbors reported that they weren't shocked at all that he'd done this.)

after the fact, they rarely are, are they...:-( but not much that can be done in advance about someone who seems a little "off" or "odd" in most cases...

I disagree. Usually neighbors will say the opposite: "He was a nice guy, I had no idea he was capable of this," etc.

Did you see my post on FB about Joel Osteen?:) Yesterday's sermon meant I did my best to stay off the 'net at work until lunch time.
I did see your FB post but not his sermon... now I get it.
:)

I love when I post something about God on FB and people who I know are atheists/not religious (like you and Pixx) "like" it. It makes me feel like you guys understand me.

Where is everyone? I get 2 minutes to take a breather at work, I want to be entertained! By an argument about 4-way stop signs, not gun control!

I'm moving. Taking a break right now. This is SO much different than moving all your stuff and furniture. Sorting is taking as long as actually moving stuff over and putting it away.
Hell, just figuring out WHERE to put stuff is its own challenge!

Good luck with all of that!

I took my Grandmother grocery shopping today. Not sure why, since she is leaving on Thursday for VT. She likes her routine, though.

You are such a complete ass. I really detest you sometimes.
There was an article a couple of weeks ago about a guy in China who killed 30 kids in a school with a knife. How about you preach to me as to why this kid was not in an institution where he belonged?
You trying to whip me with the deaths of those kids is despicable and I hope it comes back to you in spades bitch! Those deaths would have happened with a shotgun,.22, or a god dammed bat.
Your equating crazy to gun control is just a knee jerk reaction.
Know what I would love to see? I would love to see you step in front of a train. I would pay good money to see that.

PUKE!

Yes, we do now, you didn't when you made the statement. And please illuminate us as to why assault weapons should be legal? What practical purpose do they serve? I would LOVE to watch you get up in front of the families who lost their children in Newtown and explain your position.

Connecticut has some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation...

Cities that have tough gun control laws have the highest incidences of shootings.

Gun control has been proven over and over to be ineffective.

Gun control advocates are focusing on the wrong issue.

Hey sam, instead of you asking me to go preach to those families, you about you show up and tell them how its their own damn fault their children died because they did not insist that all guns be outlawed?

You are such a sick, sick, sick person. I hope you are sterile so that humanity will see the last of your defective gene pool.

Ysterday the news programs could not get a single Republican or gun control advocate to appear.

This morning on teh radio, the Senator from West Va who is 2nd amendment proponent and outspoken NRA advocate made a statement that not all constitutional rights are unfettered and he would work to renew the ban on assault rifles.

Then I turned the radio off

Way to dodge the question. 26 people would have died if he had a baseball bat instead of an assault weapon? Really? That is an interesting theory. And one of the silliest things I have ever heard.

Again, what reasonable justification is there for allowing citizens to have assault weapons? They are a little big for conceal/carry. They are not suitable for hunting. Why does John Smith need to have an AK-47? Why aren't handguns and rifles (which I accept as having a legitimate use for hunting) enough?

Make sure to use some more perjorative terms in your response. It really gets me hot.

You are a detestable animal, and I want nothing more to do with you. You jump on these kids graves to spout your own twisted views and I hope you rot in hell.
go and be a monday morning quarterback somewhere else, in the mean time I hope you get cancer.

If you thinks that means you win, go and gloat, I wont be reading any more crap that comes out of your mouth.

But I can go to any state with more lax laws and buy a gun there. Most states don't seem to have a waiting period at all. There is no federal waiting period. And private gun sales are exempt from things like waiting periods.
