“He was found not guilty. Period. End of story. This case was all about the race card. In every case there always has to be a good guy and a bad guy. Always. Thats how the media puts it. No one knows what happened that ay except for zimmerman and martin.”
“hey san, I used to be you who so much HATED the Cons. for yrs. then, I started to realize why? I started to think of the comparison of both parties. on one hand, the Democrats and the media are doin' the rabble-rouser on how horrible the Cons. are when nothin' important gets done like jobs, economy, our freedom, forced us into Obamacare, etc....and the Cons. was doin' what's best for us like jobs, expectually our freedoms that the media despise us from. so, as I got older, I became more wiser and was made a fool by listenin' to the lyin' Democrats. I know the Dems.' are in your blood. but think about it.”
“Sad? They are moving forward. They are being relevant to today's families. Whether you pathetic CONS like it or not there are children who have gay parents and they are proud of them. Good for Disney channel.”
“And the gun violence continues. How many more people will die this year from gun violence? Stay tuned. But gun freaks will never care. They care more about their stupid guns than innocent people dying.”

“sandra meanwhile 10,000 people were killed by drunk drivers last year, time to outlaw cars ? hundreds of thousands of people were killed by cancer, time to outlaw cigarettes, cigars, red M&M's, french frieds. thousands of people died from obesity, time to outlaw, twinkies and big slurpies lol.”
“Over the last two decades, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics:
- Firearm-related homicides declined 39%, from 18,253 in 1993 to 11,101 in 2011.
- Nonfatal firearm crimes declined 69%, from 1.5 million victimizations in 1993 to 467,300 victimizations in 2011.
During this same period, the number of guns have gone WAY up. In 1994, the National Institute of Justice estimated that there were 192 million firearms in the US. By 2009, the ATF estimate had risen to 310 million. That's growth of 61.4% in number of guns. The number of gun-owning households also rose, as did the number of individual firearms owners.
Further, since 1993 roughly 22 states passed laws allowing concealed carry of firearms. Several others liberalized carry laws that existed before 1993, such as going from may-issue to shall-issue or no-permit-required as seen in Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming.

In other words, over the last 20 years we have seen a solution to "the gun issue" by allowing more guns.”
