Jesus Christ you right wing nuts are all flipping out, get a F-ing grip on yourself you stupid F. The only ones at fault here are your fellow wingnuts that are snapping like twigs every day.
Like cowardly little maggots.

Obama is no leader. He is an autocratic who's thoughts were bolstered by the stupid way people voted in this election. He now thinks anything and everything he does is either wanted by the people or, if not, that it is good for them.
We are in deep, deep trouble people. I can't blame people for being afraid and cautious. Those who are not are those who want to live under tyranny possibly for the security it offers.

Are you serious? Are you actually suggesting the shooting at the range and others are President Obama's fault? Your blurred babbling fallacious comment proves you inhibit yourself think, reason and communicate effectively & logically.

You MUST be kidding! What world are you living in? In the small circle you must be keeping perhaps Obama is NOT getting the backing of the American people behind the preponderance of his agenda, but that doesn't play in the real world.

What people in this country are seeing is the long road to recovery taking shape. 28 years of REAGANONIMCS has brought the nation to its knees and it will not be repaired overnight. I think the American people like being involved in the process of running the country and the transparency and responsibility of accountability to the PEOPLE. It's still the PEOPLE that are supposed to run this country and we've gotten dreadfully far from that of late.

Obama is clearly a leader truly of the people and not beholden to corporate greed, slimy politicians and lobbyists and greedy individuals who put their wallets ahead of their place in a free society.

The FEAR game is now officially over and as we as a nation come out of the dreadful fog that has blanketed this nation for the past 7-8 years can finally fade away. His leadership in immediately trying to right the most abhorrent of Bush policies in his first few days in office showed his commitment to putting the constitution back in place as the law of the land. People don't like the government to have such unfettered, un-monitored, and unaccountable power and we are seeing that anti-American behavior coming to an end.

His leadership on the world stage has at least restored the confidence of the rest of the world in the U.S. once again being the leader of freedom and human rights. He showed once again that we lead by example and by participating in a world that is full of diverse and complex peoples.

It takes great efforts to keep telling people that the sky is green, when they can plainly use their own eyes to see that it is in fact blue. Blind faith works in certain circles but the American people seem hell bent on actually being involved in the process of running this nation. It's time to once again hold people accountable for what they do and how they make those decisions.

At the end of the day, it's WE THE PEOPLE who have take responsibility for those we put in office. We have to take responsibility for the Bush regime and all that they engaged in during the past 8 years, both domestically and globally, and show the rest of the world that while our form of government has the potential to be hijacked for a period of time, the people always come to the rescue and fix the wrongs. Based on what Obama managed during his first travels abroad, it seems clear to the majority of Americans that we are on our way to restoring our place in the world and regaining the confidence that they used to always have firmly in place with the Unites States of America.

What color is the sky in your world?

The sad thing is that the anti-gun nut balls will blow on the embers of this fire in hopes of stirring up a forest fire of demand for more legislation when we cannot even get our courts to enforce existing laws on the books. Listen, if two people are intent on killing one another, they'll use knives, baseball bats, a car, poison, fire, a bomb, a shove off the balcony [ sound familiar ] or whatever is at hand. I just hate it that these idiots picked a firing range so as to poison the already kook infested anti - gun nut balls any more against all guns as if these inanimate objects - guns - had minds and motives and ability to jump up and fire themselves. We've got to cure minds not outlaw guns.
Oh the heavy Irony in your comment...If we start curing minds like yours you wouldn't want a gun.

When shots rang out everybody went running for cover? I guess because no one in the store was armed.
I was at Shoot Straight Casselberry today, though thankfully not present when the shootings occurred. As a regular patron of this establishment, I can tell you that most of the employees are indeed armed.

If I had been inside the range area and witnessed the shooting, I might have left in a hurry as well!

This is a tragedy that will impact the families of the victims and likely add fuel to the anti-gun lobby in our local communities and nationwide.

I am a professional, trained in gun safety and a life-long shooting enthusiast. I regularly participate in target and competition sport shooting. It is unfortunate that recent events such as this may negatively impact the rights of safe and lawful gunowners.

For the most part, I echo the sentiments of FL LAW STUDENT.

The 2 probably realized how much Shoot Straight was charging them for range time and ammo.

Well, they kill people as well, but since the press cannot really push an agenda that calls for a ban on "assault knives", or "assault cars", or "assault (insert object)", you won't see very many entries.

"Gun Shunners" would like us to think that "Pro Gunners" are all a bunch of extreme individuals and the media are helping them right along.

I've owned a variety of guns over the years, includeing sniper grade bolt action and assault type weapons, though currently I own no firearms at all. I've watched over the years all of the hype and publicity every time someone goes off the deep end with a gun and thought to myself, "Wow, I sure hope no one ever goes nuts with a couple of good, sharp knives."
People see and hear guns. Guns run out of ammunition. Can you imagine how much damage someone who is adept with blades could do before everyone figured out who exactly was doing it???

I don't like it when people go nuts with guns, but it COULD be a lot worse, don't you think???

FL Law, your comments indicate a level of intelligence and reason that is not well suited for this type of discussion forum. Protcol dictates that you either be an obnoxious conservative Republican or an emotional Democrat spouting forth propoganda devoid of reason. There is no middle ground here, and your rational objective analysis is conspicuously out of place.

Speaking of dumb-

I knew that a moron like you would conclude that since I wrote suicide-murder you'd take it literally.

No, dumbie. It was to emphasize the
suicide .

Second, by personal, I meant I know someone who died that way on a range.

Third, I still wait to find one
intelligent and dececnt person in Casselberry.
