The incident took place outside the charity's community center in North Little Rock, Arkansas, a Salvation Army official said Friday.

Our deepest sympathy to the victim.

LIBERALISM AT WORK.

Liberals want to confiscate guns from law abiding citizens.

Liberals say nothing about these gang-bangers carrying illegal weapons.

Is it any wonder that the U.S.A. is the crime capitol of the world ?

More murders are committed in the USA in 6 MONTHS, than in ALL the rest of the world in ONE YEAR.
Thank the likes of Hussein Obama, the Clinton, Polosi, Feinstain, Boxerface and the rest.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
HAPPY NEW YEAR.

God Bless the USA and its guns and the NRA that protect those guns. Guns, guns, guns for all!

Yes, if the libs confiscate the guns there will be more murders ..????

Duh, ehr... a no .. fewer guns = few killings by guns. USA is sick with the obsession with violence that comes with guns. Guns are offensive weapons .. not defensive.

The solution is to send "The Messiah" and his followers back to Kenya, and the rest of the red Marxist liberal white scum
to Siberia.
Return the once great USA back to the REAL Americans.

What is wrong with a "religious" sect that gives personnel military titles, as the Salvation Army and Scientology do?

Also, just handing over the money reduces the chances of getting shot, although there is certainly no guarantee.

Nevertheless, the loss for the family and those rescued children is a shame.

Yes guns can be offensive... but when the gangs etc.. get their guns other then legal there is nothing to stop them...
You must have missed the 60 min. show where they interviewed criminals and they loved the idea of getting rid of legal guns...
or the study that the anti gun groups dont want you to see.. where violent crime went down when legal citizens were allowed to carry...

The perpetrators in this heinous crime were both African American.
In the African American Forum, they are actually trying to justify this act of vicious savagery with claims of slavery.

This isn't about guns. This is about a broken mentality within a subsect of our culture that threatens the very being of our existance as a Great Nation.

For all of you that believe guns should not be allowed in the hands of law abiding citizens, do this now:

Make a sign that says "We do not own any guns in this household." and put it out in front of your house

How sad, a person is killed all a lot of you can do is spew more hatred and your own prejudice. A person was senselessly killed there is the tragedy. Take your belief in your God and pray for the survivors of the family. Another tragedy is that the person who pulled the trigger was never taught how wonderful and valuable every single life is to God, the family and the community.

That "religious sect" would be right at your door if a disaster struck, and you would be gratefully accepting their help. They are nowhere near Scientology. And yes, we should happily hand over all our property to these lousy punks who infest our cities. You are a moron.

So your whole argument is that anyone who is outraged at this travesty is a "hate monger" and have pity for poor underpriviledged killers who shot this man in cold blood?
Does that really make sense to you?

People are spewing because they are sick of these domestic terrorists. And if people like you didn't cry and moan about God, he's still be around to stem the actions of people like these cold-blooded killers. All the radical liberals have taught the incubators of menaces like this is ---you have no responsibility to anyone for anything, expect handouts, if there is something you want, just take it. And, innocent people like this person (who was giving a part of his life to others) are mindlessly slaughtered everyday. THAT'S why people are spewing!

Agree totally with your first sentence.
Pitiful that you use this tragedy to promote your position. Not debating (nor agreeing with) that, but consider your rant as insensitive and unsympathetic.
Simply you're an pimp for doing that.

The thing that I find most outrageously disgusting isn't the fact that these animals killed this man, animals are just animals and should be treated as such. It's the fact that an entire subsect of society that we are supposed to treat with kid gloves for no reason whatsoever either openly supports their actions or attempts to deflect the blame for their actions as some conspiratorial ill of society.
That is a stigma taught from birth and can not be easily corrected. When people feel they have the "right" to commit heinous acts because of some supposed historical violation that NEVER HAPPENED TO THEM PERSONALLY, it's not a fixable situation.

It truly takes one large a-hole to write this kind of bilge, and on Christmas day, no less, after this despicable crime with its tragic results. A letter like this must be really comforting to those kids who just saw their father gunned down. If the government hadn't forbidden that father from arming his kids, why, they might have taken immediate retribution on the murderer, and everyone would be happy except for the dead people, right?

This fascist-in-training who wrote this letter really believes that issuing everyone a pistol will end horrible incidents like the one in Little Rock. He must feel that such crimes have nothing to do with the uncontrolled manufacture and distribution of guns, with poverty, with the ready availability of drugs (including alcohol), racism, a society that punishes rather than prevents crime and rehabilitates criminals, media sensationalism, our culture of mass ignorance, and a host of other problems that beset our society -- and others, too.

Yeah, make everybody who can afford to buy one get a gun tomorrow. Let those who can't afford one get to steal one from those who can, the same way the street hoodlums do, maybe killing the owner in the process. Then everybody can shoot everone else, and we will have the perfect society -- a perfectly dead society.
