Dylan Bennet Klebold was born in Lakewood, Colorado, to Thomas and Susan Klebold (née Yassenoff).[2] His parents attended a Lutheran church with their children, and Dylan and his older brother, Byron, attended confirmation classes in accordance with Lutheran tradition. At home, the family also observed some rituals in keeping with Klebold's maternal grandfather's Russian Jewish heritage. Klebold attended Normandy Elementary in Littleton, Colorado for the first two grades before transferring to Governor's Ranch Elementary and became part of the CHIPS program. He found the transition to Ken Caryl Middle School

The keys are to prioritize a routine of daily, vigorous physical activity and to maintain a healthful, low-fat diet.
It comes down to will power and perseverance.
There's no quick fix, no magic potion.
You're in charge: it's your responsibility to yourself and your family.
It's a lifestyle.

I've talked to people in the gym who make it obvious that they're there until they lose weight, and then they're done. They just can't face to concept of working out for the rest of their lives. There are only a small handful of people I see at the gym now who were there when I started.

I've been taking advantage of my gym's paid in full deals and am now paid up until 2016. Best money I've ever spent. I'm determined to live not only a long life, but a quality life.

No matter what happens to me financially, I'll have my gym membership.

And if the ban was in place he would have just changed his mind and gone home right?
Even if his mother had securely locked up the guns, he wouldn't have had the option of going on an instantaneous killing spree.

These guns don't grow on trees, and though he might have gotten one by some other means, that would have at least meant more trouble for him and more chance of stopping him before he reached that point.

Unfortunately, there ARE unscrupulous gun dealers out there who just want to make a buck and don't care what the person's mental state is.

The type of psychosis this kid had should have been fairly easy to recognize to a responsible gun dealer. And the cost of an illicit gun may have been too steep for him to afford.

How nice for you.

Do you not understand that your argument supports the claim for the Viking pantheon just as well as it does the claim for this "God" person? Look around you. Look at the sun and see how it moves. That's Sunna. See the lightning and see how it dances. That's Thor. Obviously, the gods of Asgard are real.

It doesn't matter to others what you choose to believe, especially when your ideas backed with nothing more than wishful thinking. We really only care what you can demonstrate.

The strange thing about that is none of you are angry that she is being charged with a hate crime.

Hey, what about that blackjack dealer in Vegas. She took a 10 year old girl shopping and murdered her. Then, she went to the father's new girlfriend and slashed her face. Do you know what she clutched in her hands at her arraignment? That evil book you covet.

It's nice to see the Muslims cashing in on the American brain death community, too. America is a great place to push pseudoscience, a market traditionally cornered by the Christian charlatans. Why should Christians alone get to pluck all of the low lying fruit?

First came Deepak Chopra to sell Hindu quackery - ayurveda medicine. He cashed in big.

And now Harun Yahya, aka Adnan Oktar, whose "Atlas of Creation" has already been lambasted as bad science by such luminaries as Kevin Padian and PZ Myers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adnan_Oktar#The_...

How do you know the guns were not secure ? I mean he did murder his own mother who owned them , possibly so he could get them. The thing about it is he could have done the same thing with several revolvers. I don't see how anyone can blame the weapon type.
Because he was killing in the petting zoo , even a single shot shot gun could have been used with an equal effect.

<quoted text>Even things that are supposed to be good for you are now tainted. Take salmon for example; wild Alaskan salmon is extremely healthy for you, but farm raised salmon contain hundreds of cancer causing toxins in it, including the same chemicals found in printer ink. In other countries they use common sense and ban these things from the food source, but in America if you have lots of money and lobbyist, then you can get it pushed through and onto peoples dinner plates.
Also, look at the protein content of wild caught vs. farm raised salmon.

There's about 3 times the protein in wild caught.

Someplace in Europe, they've started raising fish in a manmade saltwater habitat. They flooded a coastal area and they don't even have to feed the fish. It's also a bird sanctuary and the flamingo population has returned. They lose 20% of their fish to the birds and flamingos, but it has become a self supporting ecosystem that is successfully providing nutritious fish for people.

There is a specific kind of fish (I forget what it is), but the guy doing the talk (It was on TED talks) was not a fish lover, but he loved this fish, skin and all.

a home made bomb would have done more damage. Ban Fertilizer, rental trucks, ammonia, crazy people.
The real issue is that crazy bastards will always find a way to create the most damage and simply banning assault weapons may not be the answer. How long was this guy acting strangely? what help was or was not available? why did no one see him coming unravelled?
It's far too easy to point at the weapons and blame an inanimate object. But the guns did not use themselves.
This kid was known to have no feelings, either emotional or physical.

One of his teachers said that he had to be watched closely when the class was soldering, because he would burn himself and not feel it.

His condition was pretty well known for quite some time.

Why his mother thought it was wise to keep guns is beyond me, but it was reported that she was a prepper.

Well on my FB I've posted pictures where I was just a few pounds under 400lbs and worked my tail off to get to 200 and look good nekked. I'n my case it simply was just bad food choices, bad emotional state and lack of excercise. I't got to the point where I could not go upstairs to my bedroom because my knees hurt. I suffered from sleep apnea. In the past I made many poor choices. When my older brother had a heart attack and I went to visit him in the Hospital, I relized that all the IV medicine was exactly the same as I was taking in pill form. I had a rude awakening.
Iv'e lost almost 200 lbs since. It's been a bitch, but sometimes right decisions and easy decisions are not the same thing.
Way to go, Al!

That's something you should be very proud of.

I'm afraid your idealistic view of a world without violence will, sadly, never be realized.
Ok.

Think you can give an honest answer here?

Which weapon could you kill more people with in a given amount of time?

An AR-14 or a knife?

Which assailant would be easier to stop?

The Constitution spells it out plainly in the first sentence.

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,

the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.


The citizens armed are supposed to be able to form a militia
as strong as any army to fight for freedom. If necessary , that's the deal and a issue about our country itself.
For example the UN wants to regulate weapon sales globally.
We are against that too.

Now if foreign powers infiltrate from within and the people defenseless , the people posses no power to resist.
