Pathetic.
Oh, and asshat? My agenda is "let's not have any more gun deaths." And you're goddamn right I'll use any crisis I can to further that agenda.

I feel a lot better about that, too, than I would with your agenda - the agenda of DEATH.

How's that working for you, asshat?

And THAT is your biggest problem. You fail to see that you will NEVER stop all gun deaths. It is a mathematical impossibility. And the methos you choose to implement your attempt at doing so, has been PROVEN to do the exact opposite of what you are trying to accomplish. This is not opinion or speculation "professor", this is a FACT. Disarming people for their own safety does NOT make them safer. It leaves them defenseless to those who will not abide by any law. Even if you takle away all the guns, the bad guys will use machetes. Take away machetes, they will use knives, rocks, pipes, whatever they can find in order to victimize the innocent. But I guess you feel that is OPK becasue they won't be using a gun to do it, right?

Why do you think all these mass shootings occur in "gun-free" slaughter zones?

You are fucking clueless.

How about death to all of those who would do harm to the innocent?

Oh....I get it. Your one of those stuck-on-stupid kind of "professors" that thinks if everyone was to just lay down their guns, everyone in the world would suddenly all join hands and start singing Kumbaya, right?

Most aren't used in "justifiable homicides in self-defense." Like it or not.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Alabama -- A mother and a child were found dead inside their Jefferson County apartment this morning and a second child was airlifted to Children's of Alabama hospital with critical injuries.

Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Randy Christian said all three victims had been shot. He said preliminary information indicated the deaths might be related to a man found dead on a Fairfield roadside early this morning.

Family and friends at the scene of The Park at Rocky Ridge apartment complex in Jefferson County identified the woman as Tiffany Bozeman, 30, and the girl as Gabrielle Menefee. They identified the 5-year-old boy airlifted to the hospital as Davieon Menefee.

The family members said the man found dead in the car in Fairfield was Brandon Menefee, 30, Bozeman's boyfriend and the father of her children.

Special Rights????? What would those be? You mean honoring the 2nd Amendment HOW IT IS WRITTEN is special rights??? Please point out the part that calls for "universal background checks" or limits on what type of firearm I can own, or limits on magazine capacity. The only people wanting "special rights" are you f-ing libtards who keep reading shit into the Amendment that IS NOT THERE.

Violent crime of all kinds has decreased by more than 50% nationally since 1992 and this is in spite of more guns and more residents in the country. This fact is easily found out by perusing the data at US Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Statistics.
