    Just trying to be clear here. We do not remove the rights of others because some can come up with some what if's that they can't even show will be a problem.

    Before you go off on an attack about me hating guns, I have owned guns since I was tall enough to keep both ends out of the dirt at the same time. In over 50 years of gun ownership I have pulled a gun exactly twice. On only one of those occasions did I have to point it at anybody.
    I care less if you hate guns or not. It's totally irrelevant.

    such people tend to be less likely to cede their rights to a nanny government and are much more likely to kill criminals. either trait is upsetting to the far left

    Second link.. ALSO from yesterday.... a whole day before the official press conference.... hell it is the same bloody story from AP.

    Here is a bit more uptodate information also from AP...

    Timeline of Norway's bombing and shooting attacks - 7/24/2011 12:12:15 PM | Newser



    That is 1 hour 1 min.

    The only thing you can be critical about is the fact it took them 20 minutes to find boats to get to the island... it could have something to do with the boats being out fishing up people from the late at the time..

    So again.. your so called facts are bull**** rumours from yesterday.
    Your link notes that the shooter had over 90 minutes to track these people down and shoot them.

    Now what did I say?

    Now what exactly is your complaint here? (also just so you can have something legit to complain about). I refuse to believe nobody was contacted for 40 minutes.

    Anders Behring Breivik, the man detained for killing 93 people in a Norwegian shooting rampage and bombing, will make his first court appearance today and may shed light on his motives for the attacks.

    you seem to be confusing asking questions about what we want as a society with an honest discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of the situation with taking only one side.

    I realize it is far more convenient for some here to intentionally paint anyone who raises legitimate questions as the stereotype of the gun banning weapon hater. It makes some here more comfortable to paint others in that falsehood.

    Subtleties, shades of grey and honest questions seem to throw some off a bit.

    I don't see any need to clarify what I said. I think my meaning was clear to those who are not slaves to rigid literallity

    Pretty good. You should check out the murder rate for Norway and compare it to the US
