Trayvon Martin and America's gun laws.

Apr 16, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.newyorker.com

Every American can be his own policeman; the country has nearly as many guns as it has people.

Just after seven-thirty on the morning of February 27th, a seventeen-year-old boy named T. J. Lane walked into the cafeteria at Chardon High School, about thirty miles outside Cleveland. It was a Monday, and the cafeteria was filled with kids, some eating breakfast, some waiting for buses to drive them to programs at other schools, some packing up for gym class. Lane sat down at an empty table, reached into a bag, and pulled out a .22-calibre pistol. He stood up, raised the gun, and fired. He said not a word.

Another biased and slanted article from 'Mr Bill'

He's very prolific today. Must have gotten his check from the re-elect Obama Super Pac.

Illiterate idiots shouldn't own guns, drive or reproduce. As the liberal welfare enable more future felons to spawn, the need for guns will grow even more.

You're doin' a helluva job, Brownie.

When the government implodes because it does not have any money to spend and the economy is trashed people are going to need those guns.

Attacking the Constitution is not the solution. We might be able to purchase a little short term security by giving up our rights but we would be making ourselves ultimately unworthy of either security or freedom.

I agree. So we should fund our government and our wars. Why would any patriotic American want a tax cut during times of war?

We shouldn't be asking if Romney is Christian.

We should be asking if Jesus was Mormon.

Like in the old West, everyone should have a gun! That way, every disagreement could be settled at high noon.

Although I am happy that Trayvon’s parents, their legal team – with the help of Al Sharpton and millions of Americans got that right-wing bastard-George Zimmerman arrested for the murder of an unarmed child… there is a larger issue about guns that has to be addressed going forward. Most of these gun huggers don’t care about the tragic effects on society with so many guns available, that is until it is there child laying dead after a classmate goes on a killing rampage.
And so it goes

Love it when the democrats go after Romney based on his religion.

They need to be reminded of Reverend GODDA MN AMERICA WRight, Obama's 'theological' leader for OVER 20 YEARS!

"NOT GOD BLESS AMERICA, NO, NO, NO, GOD DAMN AMERICA"

When you attend 'church', vicious teachings abound.

Do the jews God Damn America?
Do the catholics God Damn America?
Do the Baptist God DAmn America?
Do other religion speak like this from the pulpit?

Now, how many times have the Obamas attended church...5? if that!

Obama is his own God. OBama religion is only about black people, he doesn't include hispanic, asian or whites in his beliefs. It's black people first.

That's the 'religion', the Black Liberation Theology, the Critical Race Theory. That anything produced and led by whites is tainted and prejudiced.

Is Obama's Jesus black or white?

I'm sure you are nappy, I mean happy that they "got him" but how many "children" do you know with gold toofs and criminal records?

YES. Unfortunately, the attack on the Constitution was by the Supreme Court, who threw out HALF of the 2nd Amendment.

Rev. Wright: Obama Heard Every Word

Rev. Jeremiah Wright delivered a sermon at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Charleston, West Virginia, as part of their Holy Week event. He admitted his fiery preaching has not changed since his days in seminary and that President Obama did hear 20 years of sermons.

Just in case someone's gonna say Obama never heard it.

No, they upheld 90% of it. A little soft on the prevention of infringement, but the militia dependant clause was fully upheld.
