“I did not challenge your right to carry or defend yourself, I asked for common sense from all fellow Americans. Common sense dictates that there could be a time to use your weapon, but not all have the required common sense.”

Flo Robison on Dec 6, 2013 at 18:00:27

“so... because its UNLIKELY for someone to be attacked in a staples, that means it wont happen, right? Bet those folks at the batman premiere were safer with that "gun free zone" sign outside...worked wonders for them. You aren't expecting your house to catch fire, but you have a fire extinguisher on hand, right?”

“My fellow Americans have lost all common sense. Common sense should tell you that you do not need to carry a gun into a store such as Staples! Common sense should tell you when is a proper time to keep and own a gun. I own guns and I would rather take a beating than shoot someone! It is very traumatic to shoot someone and you will never get over it.”

“But what if you were attacked by an aggressor with a knife? What if a family member were with you and they were getting assaulted while you were detained? Common sense and statistics state that as the gun ownership has increased since 1993, gun home-cides and vio-lent crimes have decreased.

“The place to start is with castration! Some people should not be allowed to have children, make me feel guilty and expect me to be partly responsible for them through taxation!”

“Wow. Forced castration so you can become a deadbeat on your taxes. I just love the warmth of the holiday season! But you probably hate health care for women and girls and disapprove of sex ed in the classroom too, right? I have a hard time believing that a person who would write this feels any guilt - or love - about anything. You are, in fact, responsible through taxation. We all are. We fought a revolution so that we could have taxation WITH representation. A fact so many in the GOTP seem to have forgotten (or more likely, just never learned).”

“Why are they "down"? Because they are criminals! Look at the menu, many honest, law abiding citizens do not get that. These criminals mostly had free attorneys to represent them. These criminals often prey on the ordinary citizens. Why do you expect the ordinary citizen/taxpayer to reward them with special treatment! The taxpayers provide the prison budget, not the sheriff.”

“Please spare me the self righteous baloney. I am more than aware the various kind of people who go to jail and mind you this is jail not PRISON. Some of these infractions are for simple possession of drugs or minor offenses..... they aren't there for committing capitol/major crimes. I know many in the "upper" income bracket who should by all rights be sitting right next to some of the inmates in this jail for the same "crimes" and are not because they live the lives of privilege or in the "right" neighborhoods. "Free" attorney's is hardly the "best" representation by an overworked and underpaid Public Defender....... Life isn't always fair, but there is NO reason to be deliberately hateful to those less fortunate.”

“They are not transgendered until they have the gender "junk" changed! How confusing is that?? What is the world coming to?”

ccroy2001 on Nov 27, 2013 at 11:19:57

“Put yourself in my women's shoes for a moment. I live my life as a woman. I shop, I go to church, out to dinner, visit family, all the things we all do, as a woman; clothes, hair, makeup, purse, I'm on estrogen, everywhere people treat me as female.

How jarring would it be for men for me to walk into the men's room and wait for a stall? How dangerous for me?

No one sees my "junk" I walk in, wait for a stall, shut the door, sit down, do what I came there for, open the door, wash my hands, check my look, and leave.

I've never had an issue. I make small talk if I'm waiting, smile, and act like a lady, because in my soul and spirit I am.

Transition is a long process that takes ~ 2 years with surgery towards the end so yes there is a long time where I won't match the other girls.

but I am a woman at my core, not a guy full of testosterone with a sex drive for women.”

Binnie Winna Torkle on Nov 27, 2013 at 06:24:56

“It'd be okay if such things were possible--that's the point of later surgery. So can you guarantee a trans person's safety when they use a restroom opposite to their innate gender?
Or maybe like the people spreading this well-paid panic, you can lie about that too.

Judy Chiasson, Ph.D., a Program Coordinator for Human Relations at the Los Angeles Unified School District:
"In the eight years that we’ve had our policy we’ve not had any problems. On the contrary, it has solved many problems. It’s a nonissue on our campuses. Our transgender students use the bathrooms for the same reasons as everybody else. They do their business, fix their hair and make-up, and gossip with friends."

"So when we instituted this policy we had no idea how many students that this would effect. In 2011, we conducted a survey in conjunction with the YRBS, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, and we learned that point-five percent of our students self-identified as transgender. In a district of our size, that’s about thirty-five-hundred students. We were shocked. We had no idea that we had that many transgender students."”

“Gun laws do not mean a thing to criminals! Gun laws only affect law abiding citizens that probably do not need to be dictated to.”

P-40bob on Nov 26, 2013 at 12:58:33

“Gun laws can be made to effect everyone if necessary. If the punishments are harsh enough and well enforced it can make a difference, but it has to start from the top down. No mfg. can sell a weapon to no other then the military and law enforcement. no more gun shops period are allowed to sell weapons , find another item to sell maybe fishing. No more gun shows and back door sales , no more selling or giving guns to relatives or friends, Anyone caught breaking the law get's 10 to 20 years , no parole hard labor building roads and fixing bridges . If used in a crime life without parole. This goes for the men at the top of the corporations that make the guns. Rewards for those turned in for owning a weapon. If no one has a gun then no more will be needed. The people have to give up their play toys and become men with some balls, find a new hobby. They are not needed for hunting, go to store and buy you food. They are not needed unless you want to overthrow the Gov. Is this strict enough for you ? The more violence that keeps going on will sooner or later lead to this kind of laws and will be demanded by the public then the politicians. Also no more gun lobbyist they are not needed.”
