It's quite simple: AIDS kills people; no homosexuals would result in less people being killed.

Even your Dogs are shooting you "responsible gun owners" with your own guns!

A Florida dog didn't quite live up to his species' reputation as man's best friend, accidentally shooting his owner in the leg with a .380 pistol on a car ride, Highlands Today reported Monday.

Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, of Sebring, Fla., didn't know the gun resting on the floor of his truck was loaded until his dog accidentally (we can only assume) kicked it and it fired a bullet into Lanier's leg.

"Lanier said he heard boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg," Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said.

Police did not arrest the dog.

This isn't the first time a dog has fired a weapon at their owner. In 2011, a yellow Labrador from Utah jumped onto a 12-gauge shotgun and fired 27 pellets into his owner's buttocks.

Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago compared to 221 killed in Iraq, and Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

President: Barack Obama
Senator: Dick Durbin
Congressman: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Governor: Pat Quinn
House leader: Mike Madigan
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel

The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.

Of course, they're all blaming each other.
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren't any!

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren't any!

State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren't any!

Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren't any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.
And he is going to “fix” Washington politics for us???

George Ryan is no longer governor; he is in the big house. Of course he was replaced by Rod Blagojevich who is...that's right, also in the big house. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned recently. That’s because he is fighting being sent to…right again, the big house!
The Land of Lincoln, where governors make our license plates!!!!

What I think is if one state has tough laws, another has basically none, anyone can go to the state w/out laws, buy a gun cross state lines. How f-ing stupid are you to make the argument about going to Mexico while skipping over the same cross state argument? Only, it's a lot harder to cross boarders than states numbnuts.

Pretty f-ing thick!

Yes, you are pretty thick dude!!! You continue to glaze over the fact that making tough gun laws does little to stop gun violence. Chicago is a great example and you are dreaming about something that won't ever exist.

The best way to limit this from happening is to make schools non gun-free zones and let the states determine if they are willing to continue to put their children at risk.

You can dance around the truth all day long, but you cannot say that the recent tragedy could have been avoided if we had appropriate laws allowing personnel in schools to be armed, or have weapons available to self-protect. At the very least, it would make a shooter think twice before entering the school to kill.

Instead, you might as well advocate that we put signs on our schools saying, "come on in and shoot us, we are completely defenseless".

Instead of going to school the students can take their classes online and save the government billions of dollars. It will happen within 30 years anyways.

Hi Wicked,

I agree that much of the education as it is now could potentially be moved to online learning, but we have very powerful teacher's unions that aren't interested in what is best for the education system...they will fight it all the way.

The teachers in Michigan proved that teachers are not the angels everyone thinks they are, and their primary focus is their benefits and paychecks, not the kids.

Thats the same with all unions but remember when government workers took furloughs to save some of their co-workers. Fire and police laid off and never rehired employees and filled vacant spots when someone retired.

Starting wages were lowered and some unions made a deal to actually had to give back money or work overtime for free.

Sorry but all the government has to say is "where is the money?". Schools will be closing in the furture no matter what the union wants. All the city has to say to the teacher's union is come up with the $50 million and your school will stay open.

You're glossing over the fact that MASS MURDERS ARE SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE OF THE GUNS!

I have to disagree. Most mass murders in foreign countries are from machetes and the biggest Mass Murder in the U.S. was from a bunch of idiots that got killed by poisoned Kool Aid. How this info will help me get my 5k I have no idea.

I'm sorry to bring up the past but a liberal psycho killed 900 followers in Jonestown in the seventies with Kool Aid. That's why I won't drink it.
