Also bring back public executions. Have them in each town square on Sundays right after church. This is NOT kinder gentler nation. People have no respect nor fear of the law.
The draft is unconstitutional.

Those that expect government to protect you, should begin to see for yourself that the only person that can do that is "you".
Now reading through this article I noticed something. Apparently this guy was mentally ill. In December was picked up and arrested for "menacing" after attacking a dog with a shovel. The shovel was being used for him to dig his fox hole.
Ok this screams at me. PTSD. Now from www.ptsd.vs.gov what is a form of treatment?
Medication
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a type of antidepressant medicine. These can help you feel less sad and worried. They appear to be helpful, and for some people they are very effective. SSRIs include citalopram (Celexa), fluoxetine (such as Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), and sertraline (Zoloft).
Oh look, mind altering drugs. Nooooooooooooooooooooo, there can be no connection.
Here in town, there are 800 police officers for 450,000 people. When seconds counts, the police are only minutes away.

Just think, all this country and it's citizens would have to do is WAKE THE HELL UP. No place is 100% safe. Humans are predators, and it goes back to what has been said a thousand times before. Guns are NOT the problem, people are. The loonies are out on the street because the libs considered it exploitation to put them in institutions. They brought this on.
To my recollection, in most states it was the conservatives
who didn't want the state to maintain institutions for
the insane. Too much taxes. Leave it to the private sector
to do it.

The upshot of that conservative policy is that the insane
are being housed in our prisons instead. Very costly,
but it makes a conservative feel better to know that our
prisons are full.

Or you could do what we do, and drive the children to school. I will never admit whether we are armed or not. It is no ones business.

Wrong. The NRA has fought for years to take guns from the insane. The government needs these loonies to excuse their gun grabbing, but we will take them off the streets, and put them in hospitals that are really gun free zones. And if the school bus driver had been armed he would be alive today, and the 6 year old would be safe. Don't ask strangers to keep your children safe if you won't give themn what they need to do the job.
You are so full of crap.

Being armed is no guarantee.

The four police officers gunned down while at lunch in
Washington State were all armed and all trained in the use
of weapons.

They never got off a shot. They were dead before
they knew what had hit them.

Same with any bus driver, only faster.

Jesus, you morons and your Wyatt Earp fantasies.

the only guarantee is if you are unarmed you have a 0% chance against an armed thug or psyco. And with a gun you atleast have a chance?? I would much rather have a chance than to be totally at the mercy of a madman. If you choose 0% chance thats your choice, not mine. I am sure if this bus driver and the parents of the kids on the bus had a do over, they would prefer the bus driver be armed,,,, atleast a chance??

Oh yeah, I'm sure most parents really wanted their bus driver packing heat. Have you SEEN most bus drivers? I wouldn't trust them with a putty knife!

Either you have no kids or you are braindead,,, you are saying that the parents of this child hostage, and the family of this bus driver would have not preferred the bus driver to atleast have had a chance,, the driver is dead and the best you can do is put down bus drivers?

At the shrinkage of .1%, the Economy in the last Quarter 2012, was .8% better than the Economy Obama inhereited exactly 4 years ago from George Bush.

The Household Median income adjusted for inflation is $50,054 Today, In 1996 the Household Median Income was $50,661, which means wages in America have been declining over the last 16 years....and Flat if you compare today's wages to 1989 $50,624 median income.

Your wages in the middle class have been the same or worse for 23 years.

Wages wont’ change, jobs won’t be produced………elections have consequences. We were lied to again by Obama, the MSM (his boy toys), and the White House.
We can only hope Obama’s Doctored numbers are covered under ObamaCare.
