    Sorry, it just puts me to sleep.
    I tried before, when I cared what my father in law thought, but that was fleeting.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    So horror of horros some famous sports guy uses a gun and now all of a sudden people start bitching again. There argument is the same old one as always. if there was no gun the stupid football player and his girlfriend would still be alive. Perhaps that is true, but that is not our world. We hear these arguments all the time for banning things. if there were no drugs then no one would abuse them. The problem with most of these arguments, if not all of them, is simply it is impossible. There will be guns in our society tomorrow. banning them will not stop them from being there.

    The way I see it is there is no solution to people doing crazy **** in the world. You can ban this, or limit that, but still people are going to do crazy destructive things. I am not saying we just stop dealing with it, but there are going to be those things you simply cannot prevent. I would also like to note they are rare. Across the US millions of people owned guns the day this wackydoodle footbal dumbass went off and killed his girlfriend and himself. Did we hear anything about those guns that sat idle in responsible hands? Did we hear the millions of stories about the gun owners that simply let their aggravation go and didn't pick up their guns and shoot people? No, we do not hear about all those people because then we might realize it is not guns that kill people, it is people who kill other people.

    I am all for keeping the crazies from owning guns, and people who are criminals who made their mistakes and have shown themselves to be prone to doing the wrong thing from owning guns. i am for background checks and waiting periods. I am for gun training for gun owners, and regulations about keeping a gun safely where anyone else would have a problem getting to it if they wanted to. Those are all great and i am with people on those ideas. However, banning guns simply does not solve the problem of people doing violent things. I have seen some fights in my life, and none of them included gun or even weapons. The closest i ever saw was a DJ getting hit with a beer bottle because some drunk didn't like the fact it was the last song and the bar was closing. violence happens for dumb reasons, and banning things won't make violent people stop being violent.

    It may be true that without guns this footbal player and hid girlfriend may still be alive, or it may be true they would both still be dead because he choked her or bounced her head off the pavement and then decided to kill himslef another way. The fact is the end result of banning gubns is supposed to be to stop violence, and it doesn't accomplish that goal at all. It won't even get rid of guns.
    The regulations you listed don't have any effect, either...obviously.

    Whitlock spoke out against the NFL’s handling of the aftermath of Jovan Belcher’s suicide and gun issues in his Sunday FoxSports.com column. During Martin’s podcast, he likened the NRA to the Ku Klux Klan and tied the group to the dangerous street culture that unfortunately dominates “so many black youths.”

    Now come on....Do you think the NRA = the KKK? That isn't honest opinion, it is inflamatory Bull.

    Gun advocates calling others inflamatory. That's rich.

    Hey, what did the GOP's gunspokesman, Ted Nugent have to say about this?


    "Hey Bob Costas we all kno (sic) that obesity is a direct result of the proliferation of spoons and forks. Get a clue,” Nugent tweeted.

    “BobCostas has clearly lost his mind. Inanimate objects are the problem not murderers. Brilliant.”

    Oh and the freakish washed up musician also said we need to "slaughter" welfare, by which he probably meant people on welfare, using his guns no doubt.

    sounds far more rational than some jock sniffer's silly rant based on a racist bit of idiocy by some other moron.
