First, I gotta show some love to a fellow New Englander (johnnykanoo), but now that is done, on to the rest of my post.
I would like to think the world wept when that happened, even though I am sure that some didn't. I do not have children of my own, but I do have 2 nieces, and I think I would lose my mind if something like this happened to them. The problem is, as sick as this sounds, I feel that some of the gun control nuts were secretly glad something like this happened, so it gave them another excuse to pull the stuff they did (which you talked about next).
Actually, I heard in New York city, they are talking about banning spoons, or at least high calorie and large size sodas.
Now why did you have to go and insult morons like that? At least they are smart enough to know it is an insult to be associated with Obama.
That is the way it should be for the majority of issues, including these latest SC "rulings" where they basically ignore their function in the 3 part system within the U.S. government, and and instead set law. All they are supposed to do is review specific cases and laws to see if they are Constitutional, and they can't even do that part right re: "Obamacare." I still haven't been able to find out where in the U.S. Constitution it says that the average American citizen is required by law to purchase health insurance, and then get fined if they don't. The President doesn't set or make laws either, but that doesn't seem to have stopped our current one (Obama) one bit.
- Probably when you wrote this, yes, but I am sure that if CT didn't find a way to screw you over with the ridiculous progressive "gun safety" laws, that the federal government would.
- Probably not, because unless enough people wake the hell up and start to do something about it, that is likely to not be possible either.
- I highly doubt it.
Not according to all the progressives out there that are doing (insert sarcastic tone here) such a wonderful job protecting our safety because we are apparently too stupid to figure out what to do for ourselves. More people need to stop and realize that all the well meaning progressive ideas are, for the most part, having the opposite effect on what they are claiming to be solving. I wish the clueless Obama supporters would finally take off the Oblinders and see what is really happening. I can't believe he got 2 terms.
People need to stop and think about what was happening in what was to become America when the idea of the Declaration of Independence, and eventually the Constitution, started. The Constitution and the majority of the Bill of Rights (the first 10 amendments) were in place to keep the government out of our lives as much as possible.
I agree, and you would hear more about the violence happening without guns if the progressives actually cared about stopping the violence, instead of using specific cases as an excuse to get on their soap box.
Case in point, you hear a lot of hoopla about how something needs to be done about the racism when there is an incident involving a black person and a white person. So, all of the incidents involving 2 black people or 2 white people must be OK then? It isn't an issue then? Or is it just that you can't get on TV without a reason and push an agenda without being despicable and using someone else's pain to push your platform, Al Sharpton? Why is it we hear so little from you when there are other horrible events happening, but as soon as it involves one white person and one black person, you are all over it? Why is it, even when race was not an issue in an incident, do people like you push race onto it, hoping to further your agenda?
Sorry, I also need to get off of my soap box, and stop picking on one specific person for their despicable actions, as there are many more perpetrating despicable actions as well, all in the name of the nanny state they are trying to make.
