beg to disagree.
sand head countries... Car bombs, suicide bombers.... Kill way more in a day than happens here.(except chicago)
What other countries have our view of guns? not many, Europe outlawed them in the name of peace, but that only served to leave the peasants subject to their masters who had the guns.
We are a unique culture, and there is no canned answer to what is plaguing us. if you break down all the wacko killings you are left with nothing but wacko's....That is what is causing the problems, not guns, not breast milk, not violent computer games... Just wacko's who have access to guns.
The answer is not to get rid of the guns....but get rid of the wacko'sq

If it were that simple, other countries would have similar gun-related deaths problems, but no one else does. It's our gun culture.

And by your (il)logic, people should be able to do whatever they want with no regard whatsoever to societal impact.
I've asked you twice to support the appropriateness/necessity of assault weapons for ordinary citizens, and all you've given me is "'Because." It just shows a very small mind that is incapable of reason. Should citizens be allowed to have land mines? Bazookas? Tanks? Nukes? Where do you draw the line? Or isn't there one? People should be allowed to have whatever the heck they want?

To all but sam, have a great time, I am on vacation for the rest of the year. I will say a prayer for the children and if you want to use my silence to trump your own agenda, well have at it. It does not make you right, it just makes you a sick filthy opportunist, and if thats the cloak you want to wear enjoy.

I think some of us ARE talking about that. IMO, it falls in the same column as other mental health issues and the lack of treatment and support available.

However, I cannot comprehend having a child that I KNEW had these problems, and keeping firearms in the house AT ALL.

Are you trying to portray yourself as a responsible gun owner? Your vitriol isn't helping.

No one in the Obama administration is intent upon "banning guns". The reality is that bell cannot be un-rung. We've created a very dangerous society where we do have to protect ourselves, from ourselves. I think you like it that way. I know the gun manufacturers, the corporations who own prisons and the security companies do. And that's just for starters...

I hope Rush Limbaugh appreciates that, were it not for your ilk, he would not have an audience.
And I think that what you meant to say was "Go die as the result of a home invasion by a mentally ill person armed with machine guns, you unarmed pacifist hippie bitch."

What, may I ask, does marriage have to do with gun control?

My thighs quiver in anticipation of your answer.

Expressing my disgust for a person who hold up dead babies and tries to make it my fault, is absolutely no reflection on how responsible I am, unless that is what you want to read into it.

I think that instead of them trying to change the world on this forum, they should do something real, send a message to society that things must change. You know, they should go on a hunger strike, or light themselves on fire or something.

Were all tough behind the keyboard.

Abby is posted.
Amy is a public service announcement to buy hard cover books for Christmas gifts- not worth the posting effort.

Someone else post the link please.

I do firmly believe that his mother had no inkling that he would behave in a violent manner. I sort of have to.

She's the one who taught him how to use guns, and took him to the range.

I don't think I've ever said this in mid-December before in my entire life, but I can't wait until January. I'm so busy at work I can barely see straight (and spare me the comments about being on here while I'm at work... I need a little mental break once in awhile, and right now I'm waiting on data from other people before I can move on with certain major projects). I still have more than half of my Christmas shopping to do and no idea when I'll have time to do it. I'm depressed about being single and stressed out about everything.

Last weekend, A's boyfriend created another situation and I'll spare you guys the gory details but I did finally have a very honest conversation with her (that's what my post on Saturday night was referring to). I don't have any regrets about what I said or how I said it, I feel like it went really well. But her waffling about the relationship continues to affect me - we were all supposed to go to the Dolphin game this weekend (me, her, boyfriend, and the 4th ticket was up in the air but probably A's roommate) but I don't really know where they stand right now. I suppose I have the right to offer the other ticket to someone else, but if I do that and then they're together over the weekend, she won't go either and I'll be stuck. And I got these tickets free from my boss's boss and I just want to go and have a good time and not worry about all this crap.

My Christmas plans are up in the air too. I just want all of this - work projects, holidays, social drama - to be over with.

About a half hour after losing her job, my work girlfriend learned her stepson had died. Deadly mix of pills and booze.
Prescription drug abuse kills far more people than guns and is the second leading cause of unnatural death behind car accidents. My own brother included.
Why aren't we hearing talk about more legislation to try to curb this?
Most likely b/c a lot of little kids got shot, they didn't die from pills and booze.

Not sayin' that isn't something else we need to look at but one does not discount the other.

Whether or not you are a gun owner (you in the big world sense -- not you personally), to completely shut down thoughts of gun safety, regulation, etc. without adding to the discussion is confusing to me. An answer of "I got my guns and you can't take them away" is not a discussion. That's little kid thinking who does not want to add to the serious discussion. People don't have to agree to add something thoughtful to the discussion.

Time to tell her the next time she cancels is the last time you're asking her anywhere until she gets her relationship under control. Boy! That would be difficult to say, I know.

Now you're just paranoid to the max. I did not read anywhere that anyone blamed you.

As for changing the world, you have no idea what anyone does outside of this forum.

Exchanging ideas is the first step to anything. Telling someone to go die with such hatred is showing extremely bad character.

Just pointing out your hypocrisy of wanting to regulate things you don't agree with, but not willing to regulate something you do agree with.

I've got nothing but time on my hands for the next three weeks. Maybe I can pay you a visit?
