    It would seem to me that anyone who would shoot another for no good reason has mental issues to begin with....it matters not whether they had a brain tumor or a brain fart...

    I know. But discussions such as these tend to bring out viewpoints that are...interesting.

    New status quo, I guess.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    National shooting tragedy? The loss of life is always tragic, this is hardly "national".
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Yeah, it is never a 'national' tragedy until it happens to you or yours.

    We had a cop shot dead by a meth cooker on an isolated rural road very early one morning. One cop, one meth cooker, no big deal right? Happens all the time, right?

    Except that after this NATIONAL tragedy widespread new laws were passed restricting the sale of some allergy/cold medications.

    Never be to quick to dismiss the death of one who risks his life daily for us, the same us who doesn't put too much stock in the sacrifice- until it feeds a debate you support.

    Interesting that when white boys go nuts it is justa shrug and 'lets all move on'... Loughner, Holmes, Page and now Caffall... a shrug and a 'what can you do? it's a Constitutional right.'

    Imagine if any of those shooters had been an angry Mooslim or an angry 'inner city' n'er do well?

    Bet THAT would have been seen as a national tragedy and the demands to 'do something' would come from the righteous right as well as the 'usual suspects'....

    Oh, and inb4 "if the victims had only had guns, they wouldn't have died."


    YOu have me confused for someone who cares. Ignoring people you don't agree with is pretty much the sign of defeat
