“The worst terrorist attack before 911 was a young white American male named McVeigh. He wasn't Muslim. He was a former soldier and like Snowden, a former employee of a defense contractor.”

“to all the misinformed people posting that Snowden is in China, he's not. He's in Hong Kong. Though China technically" owns" HK, HK has it's own currency, government, laws, etc.. The US has much more control over Guam than China does HK.”

“I still haven't figured out what the big secret was. I already assumed that the government was monitoring internet usage and phone calls looking for terrorist activity. As for hacking into China's or other nations systems like they do ours, I hate to break the news to you but our government is doing what you only thought other governments do.”

“you state that "Human nature being what it is, if there's a gun around, then somebody will most likely use it" there are over 300 million legal guns owned in America. if you figure the actual percentage of gun deaths to guns owned then your theory is not supported by fact. I completely agree with you on the accidental shootings but unfortunately its hard for us gun nuts to address issues with non gun nuts because, like you mention above, all you want to do is "confiscate" my weapon. the reason for all the accidental shootings is because, like background checks, you don't even have to take a safety class to own. I own several weapons and when I was young my father taught me safety and respect for guns as his father did and as I did for my children. Not all of us legal gun owners support the NRA's position on background checks.  I think in addition gun buyers should have to take a safety course. Again, please explain to me how confiscating my guns will stop criminals from using theirs? That's like the government taking your car because too many people are killed by drunk drivers. Before you retort that guns are only designed to kill. I know that's why I own them. ”

“I, as a so called gun nut, would love to slam you but you intelligently stated your point and I completely respect that. I even almost hit the favorite. now to give you my retort. Yes in a perfect world there would be peace, love, and happiness with no guns. This my friend is not a perfect world. Reality is that there are very, very bad people out there...and they have ILLEGAL guns. As we the people complain about our taxes and our inept, and in some cases corrupt, politicians mismanage their budgets, they cut our most vital need: Police, Firemen, and Teachers. Without adequate schools and the guidance of a good teacher, for some their only roll models, children are influenced by their environment. Access to unlimited sources of information on the TV, internet, video games, music, etc... have breed a more violent society. Cutbacks in police have allowed CRIMINALS to roam the streets virtually unimpeded in some areas. I do not own guns for the purpose of protecting myself from my gov't, they have drones, guided missiles, and tanks, I own them to protect my family from my neighbors and fellow countrymen. If you can come up with a solution that will guarantee that there will be no illegal guns on the streets and my family will be safe from our declining society I would gladly give up my weapons. Until then I will continue to protect my family from becoming another crime statistic.”

jthinker on Apr 28, 2013 at 12:03:57

“I encourage you to actually look up the stats on gun deaths and you'd be surprised at how many people are shot with their own guns. Another interesting fact, is that 60% of women homicide victims are shot. The proliferation of guns at this point is very problematic, but the solution isn't to distribute more of them. We should instead be first, trying to curtail the manufacture of them, and then slowly but surely collecting them, so as to reduce how many there are. The incorrect interpretation of the 2nd amendment has left us with a terrible killing field. Human nature being what it is, if there's a gun around, then somebody will most likely use it.”

“Someone whose paranoia leads them to actually believes they NEED an assault weapon with a large ammunition clip for protection.  Someone who resists ANY common sense regulation of firearms because "it's a slippery slope to the government confiscating all guns".  Someone who thinks the 2nd amendment is about having an armed public so they can resist the authority of the government. ”

“In case anyone forgot; from the UK Mail May 2012 (less than a year ago):

"A neo-Nazi party who advocate forcing immigrants into work camps and planting landmines along the border are today savouring unprecedented political success in Greece."

"They adopt the Nazi salute and have a stylised swastika as their logo and have already made inroads into local government - in areas of Athens where there are large numbers of immigrants."

“Technically, he did nothing wrong. The police did not tell him not to follow TM, the 911 dispatcher did. I know it's minor but legally the POLICE did not tell him to not follow him. Also, legally GZ has the same right to walk down the same street as TM does. There were no words exchanged between the two men until TM confronted GZ. Legally at this point TM was the aggressor and GZ has every right to protect himself or "stand his ground". With that said, there is no doubt in my mind that this is the reaction GZ wanted, and got. TM was also wrong for confronting GZ but under the circumstances I probably would have confronted GZ also. If the jury judges him by law alone he will go free. If they judge him on intent he'll be in the slammer.”

“The problem in our society is the media. The media has always skewed our view of black leaders. As you point out the media appointed Al as your spokesperson because us white people view him as crazy and irrelevant. Medger and Malcolm were always portrayed as the extreme, radical, violent, fringe. I also noticed you use "black" instead of the African American label the media gave you. Is that because Africa is a continent and not a country? I would find it unusual and disheartening if I was forced to identify myself as European American.”

“Why do you insist on name calling, it diminishes your credibility and makes you appear as "fringe" and no one with an opposing view will consider your point, thus, why you don't listen to the people listed in your retort. The NRA, Nugent or Jones speak for me. I own several assault weapons but do not belong to nor support. As a father I was appalled by the NRA response. Jones' claims that Sandy Hook was staged is even more appalling. I and every gun owner I know want universal background checks. I also want safety courses mandatory but no one has mentioned safety because they are too busy calling each other names.”
