If more decent people would arm themselves we could reduce the number of the most grizzly murders. Every person in America, black, white, yellow, brown, who has respect for the law ought ta be packing.

Every American, who can pass a background check and pass a comprehensive course on "responsible gun ownership under the law" which will cover all the essential knowledge that a responsible gun owner must have to be able to legally carry, should be issued a CCW permit.

Thanks bro, the racists don't like it when people come together across racial lines, the white ones curse the day, and the black ones put their hand over their hearts and beg their brothers not to hurt them by befriending the white man, because it directly opposes their way of thinking, because they wish to continue to carry a grudge. Same with the whites. Thank God most people are sensible and aren't consumed by all the hatred and violence that's out there. Sooner or later there will be a consensus among the many. They don't like that.

No, they sure don't like it.

Their reaction to Blacks and Whites and Hispanics coming together to re-elect President Obama really sent them in a tizzy.

I'm sure you noticed. I did.

If you allow anyone to take you "straight to hell," then it is you with the problem.

Let's put that theory to test.

Since you say you step up to a challenge, here's your challenge...

You question others when they give the background of the mass murderer without offering anything to refute it other than name-calling.

Prove that the race of the mass murderer wasn't White. Also, while you're researching, prove that when someone points out the racial/ethnic background of a murderer that they must be racist against that background.

You throw around the tags "racist" and "moron" callously. If you want to see some bona fide racists, I can point them out to you since you are shooting blanks.

On the subject of morons, well, you're proving what a moron is. That's not an insult. It's a fact.

Ok, you got a challenge ahead of you. And I'll keep pressing you on it until you answer it.

You were the one who said that the sandy hook shooter wasn't hispanic..so i merely asked you to tell us what his ethnic background was since you know so much..but you still can't answer because you still don't know..the other racist poster said he was jewish..but they also could not prove their statement..lol all you do is continue to play musical shooters lol.i don't need to prove anything to lying racists like you.. I asked a simple question and you are still dancing around it..you are a real moron..and a real idiot..a racist..you're the one who throws around the words moron and idiot and fool..read you own posts..lol..then gfy.

More guns = more murders.

More firearm deaths.

It isn't rocket science.

Do believe you're wrong. In the short run maybe not. If everyone is armed or the perps don't know who is and who isn't carrying, it gives them pause.. and that for scumbags isn't any kind of science. If a few of these scumbags end up in the emergency room, with their 'tools' deplaced, maybe they understand the 'science' of a 1500 mi an hour projectile..

Did you read that mess before you posted it? Ever had circles run around you?

You say...
"I never said I knew what the shooters identity was"
----------
No, but you sure can chastise others about knowing it. In order to challenge anyone on anything, you need to know the facts yourself. Just because you don't know the Truth doesn't mean others don't. You must not have been on the debate team in high school. Oops, I mean in junior high school.

The sun is hot. You want someone to prove that to you too?

Next...

You say...
"You were the one who said the sandy hook shooter wasn't Hispanic..."
----------
HA! You're much too funny. In your opening sentence you tell us what you never said then in your next you tell us something I never said.

Please point to the exact post where I said that. Careful now, be very careful. That might take you awhile.

Next...

You say...
"..so i merely asked you to tell us what his ethnic background was..."
----------
MERELY?
Here's how you asked...
"What is his ethnic background idiotic moron?" (Your Post# 44351)

Perhaps you've forgotten the definition of "merely." Let me help you out...
"Only as specified, nothing more; simply."

It was not "merely" a question. It was laced with disdain, disrespect and foolishness. Perhaps you'll allow anyone to ask you questions in such a way and give them an answer.

I won't.

Next...

Oh, we all know damn well I can slice and dice your entire idiotic post to pieces...easily. But let's skip to the end of it where you so eloquently reasoned and wrote...

"then gfy"
----------
When all else fails, let's resort to base mentality, eh?

Yes, all else always fails you!

I knew he was a mixture of white,black and Peruvian but this is the first I've heard that he is Jewish. None of which has any bearing on him being a murderer, which we know he is.

BTW, you didn't prove it so you're probably lying.

WTF is wrong with you? This isn't the 30s in Germany. You moronic imbecile.

His grandmother on his father side was also 1/16th Cherokee Indian princess.

Should go far in his sentencing hearing.
