Guns do not kill people - people kill people and if it is not done with a gun it will be done with a bomb. Look how many died when they blew up that Federal Building in OK. That was accomplished by using fertilizer - going to band fertilizer? Obama say's it the guns fault and I believe it is the nut holding the guns fault. I believe there should be a background check on all gun owners, however I do not want the world to know I have a gun - the THUGS would look for gun owners to rob. Happened in NY.
a determined ambitious right wing terrorist or a crazed suicide bomber with a network can pull that off.

Generally our zombie killers just go mom's closet and must have semi-automatics to do a lot of damage. That's the difference.

Yet most of the gun related deaths in this nation are in urban areas with strong gun control that consistently vote Democrat each year such as Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Stockton, St Louis, Baltimore, Cleveland ,Buffalo, Washington,DC, NYC , Oakland, Los Angeles and the lists goes on.

you get tired of reading the racist stuff said about the president?
It has to be condemned when it occurs - which is about 1/3 of time on Topix.
Prove the racist stuff.

I have not seen RACIST STUFF - I do see where the people (including me) are not in agreement with his policies or his work HABITS, his lies, his cover ups, and the fact that he uses kids to try to get his points across to the public, his childish and nasty attitude, and his threats of not paying the seniors their SS, flying to different states to try to get the people to agree with him (toy factory and auto), going on vacation when we are about to go over the cliff and accepting NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY OF HIS ACITONS.

That is NOT RACIST - our posts are on his ACTIONS - we would be saying the same thing if he was white, green, purple, or yellow.

I agree. Guns are not allowed in Chicago and they have one of the highest gun deaths in Illinois. The guns that are killing are in the hands of the THUGS which have been stolen from the honest gun owner.

Guns do not kill people - people kill people.
