Interesting comment because there is alot of spouting about MY second amendment/MY rights to own a gun/MY safety from the boogeman/tyrannical government/paranoia du jour who are coming after ME, ME, ME - you know that typical paranoia.
But what matters are those guns hurt/kill others - whether it is in a school, mall or a movie house. So it is about THEM, THEM, THEM.
That is what "matters", n'est-ce pas?
As you've been told several times and logic mandates, guns don't kill people. Evil people murder people, but of course not all killings are unwarranted nor unnecessary. This has been since the beginning of time with only the newest methods changing. How long since Columbine, this issue of safety in schools should have been handled the first week after the children's deaths the first time. You can't and won't get rid of all guns, so that isn't the solution, putting security and one entry point in schools is the solution. Maybe if we had used all of those billions that went to unions and green friends for school security four years ago, we wouldn't be having this debate.

It's the usual story with Congress, especially an inept, fractured, partisan and divided one like this...talk about passing something and then compromise the crap out of it until the final result is almost completely worthless.

Happened already with Obamacare and Wall St. "reform," apparently happening with gun "regulation," too.

Congress SUCKS.

No need to look further for proof that the poster is a moron than that idiotic bumper-sticker phrase.

Of course guns kill people, you friggin' moron. People USE THEM TO KILL PEOPLE.

Some of you are vary hard on your President. Some are even disrespectful. I shall interpret the latter as anindication of your freedom's success, as it's good that you do not fear retribution, as is the case in some countries. But, with respect, I think he's doing a good job.

I await your contrary responses (or agreement), but ONLY if done civilly.

In some cases, comparison to baboons is unfair - to baboons. Take you, for example.

You actually dare to call me a baboon, you disgusting pig? You are a very disturbed individual. A racist liberal? Perhaps you wear that disguise in order to give vent to your racism while escaping blame?

According to evolutionary science, we all hail from some of primitive simian-like creature. You are no better than me for being white. We share a common mother, albeit thousands of generations ago.

Please do not bother to reply to any of my post. Your gross racist underbelly has been exposed for all to see. I wish no further discussion with the likes of you.

Get some help. Read a book. Educate yourself. You are quite ill.

I should point out to others that LW had already been apprised of my mixed racial heritage on another Topix site. Why he chooses to attack me for this is beyond my understanding. What has race got to do with anything?

Good NRA propaganda but the recent violent massacres our country has experienced recently have been with GUNS, GUNS, GUNS, GUNS, GUNS.

Until you frightwinger gun*uggers tell me that a pair of scissors killed all those innoncent folks, I will know - like others - that it was GUNS, GUNS, GUNS.

Try another propagandized NRA garbage ....

I agree - these disrespectful folks can dislike this President but the tone/rhetoric/and yes racist remarks are not worthy of our country.

Just as those of us who disliked Bush, these folks could at least respect the office of the presidency and show some respect.

I don't give a rat's ass what color you are. I call you a baboon (actually somewhat below that) simply based on your moronic and lying words accusing me of racism.

What made you assume I knew what race you are anyway? Now you imply that you are non-white. Whether or not that's the case is irrelevant to me. Yes, I happen to be white. That's an accident of birth in which I take no pride. There is no superior race. Nitwits come in all colors.

I should point out that you are full of shit. Race has nothing to do with anything. Being an a'hole does.

Yes, that's the liberal technique. Get rid of any voice of dispute or reason.

You little low information votes can't handle the level playing field in the battle of wits and information.

Well I guess it's attack the first amendment as well as the second, third and fourth.

Oh you are so wrong - as usual - effigies are wrong (of anyone), throwing shoes are wrong (especially at our president - yes even Bush) and obsessing about our presidents' sex lives seems prebuscent and ignorant. Witching about their wives' bodies/shoes/bangs etc also seems prebuscent and ignorant

Yes, marching and speaking up about the Iraq war was - and is - correct because it has caused so much harm to our country - on all levels.
