The New Front In The Gun Control War Is Your Local Shopping Mall

“The long term trend in violence has been on a downward trend. Murders in public places, though they are covered more by the media, account for a small percentage of violent crime. Does anyone seriously think putting a sign on the door will keep the next James Holmes out?”

Eris23Skidoo on Dec 5, 2013 at 11:25:29

“Well everyone will know to be warned when the next James Holmes comes in because he'll be the guy with all the weapons. As of right now, you don't know who the next James Holmes is until he actually starts killing people.”

“It's business pure and simple. Red Sox have been burned by big contracts (i.e Crawford, A. Gonzalez, Lugo, remember Matt Young?) Ellsbury has been a pleasure to watch and I'm sure he will put up some good numbers for a couple years then they will be stuck with a 37 year old banged up center fielder they will shuffle around after getting maybe 60 million worth out. Best wishes!”

“The argument from the left is typically that only the police and military should have access to firearms.The argument from the right is that citizens should have access to firearms because they distrust the state. An armed representative of the state flipping out and shooting people would seem to reinforce the argument of LaPierre.”

“Sorry but those are all arguments that come from the mind of someone on the right which just ridiculous just like many on the right. People who support guns over human rights. Claim to be Christians but don't read or understand the bible because they don't like education, real knowledge, truth or facts!”

He enters a Faustian bargain revealing that he is as much a narcissist as she is. He has never spent a minute in the food service industry and she has been trained by God. This was great television!

“Apparently, the Washington Times did though. What terrorism are the Christians doing precisely? I am no fan of either religion.”

hannah87 on Apr 24, 2013 at 12:22:12

“Well, there are the acts of violence committed by the KKK and the neo-Nazis, since both of those are Christian groups. And, in the UK, there are also the acts of violence that have been committed by the British National Party and the Irish Republican Army, since both of those are Christian groups. Christian terrorism is very real, but it just gets swept under the rug by most media outlets.”

“You seem to be hung up on the "activity" and "behavior" of homosexuals. Special "protected status" for sexual preferences is not what gays want. When I got married no one asked me if I was a legal heterosexual. The court is not debating conferring benefits on a special group but rather what are the justifications for denying legal status to a whole segment of the population based solely on sexuality.”

Robert Strauss on Jun 30, 2013 at 18:04:34

“I am referencing the comments made during arguments to the Supreme Court where the petitioner stated that the act of sodomy provided special constitutional protections.  Legal status is not being denied to these people as they are free to marry under the same conditions as anyone else.  So again the argument being pressed here by those who want homosexual marriage is that there is a special privilege associated with this behavior.  Should one be able to marry their brother, sister, mother, father, son, or daughter?  If I want to do any of these would my constitutional rights be denied?  There is a definition of marriage, I assert it should be by natural law and millennia of precedent or at least by the voters.  The Supreme Court last week ruled that they alone can rule on what this definition is irregardless of what the people (of California) wanted, natural law, and long standing precedent.  There is no legal, constitutional, or precedent based logic for these decisions. ”

“The headline links validate what LaPierre said: 1. Criminals aren't going to be checked, they're not going to do this and 2. Focus on things like mental health. Just follow the headline links. None of these unfortunate people were shot by the people that background checks are aimed at. I want to be safe as much as the next person but making law abiding people jump through hoops won't change the fact that drug dealers, gang bangers and felons aren't going to register their illegal handgun.

“Six month old baby shot dead” = gang drive by.
“Teens shot dead near memorial for other teens” = gang assault at the park
“Man shoots father” = mental health issue
“Soldier with purple heart shot dead” = stationed at Fort Bragg but officials said foul play is not expected.”
