    Most of your post disagrees with your attempt to equivocate. Here, I'll highlight the portions that drew my attention:

    we, as a society, have chosen to act civilized in the face of such animals.. we protect them , we protect their rights, and we protect their sensibilities.
    not a bad way to go, as it puts us on higher ground... but it is frustrating sometimes, and it really doesn't lend itself to exacting justice.
    our civilized nature in the face of these people...well,it is both a strength and weakness.
    "Not a bad way to go" doesn't change the fact that your feelings on the subject pretty directly oppose the Bill of Rights.

    Why the hell are they attempting to save the shooter's life, when we are eventually going to spend millions of taxpayer dollars putting him on trial, imprisoning him for a number of years, before finally putting him to death? It does not make sense. This shooter killed a cop, along with someone who was shopping and minding his own damn business. Let this punk die.

There are entire communities in the United States, just as in Brazil, in which police and firefighters will not go. The Navy Guards at the Hunter's Point Shipyard in California had to have iron barriers for years because of the snipers in the nearby housing projects.

    Let their damn houses burn, who cares.
    Webster, NY has a very low crime rate according to the FBI UCR. Looks like a middle class town.

    well hell, as long as you are going to strip away the parts that don't fit your opinion of my sentiment, there's not much I can say to defend myself here.


    let me retype that for you .. focusing only on the parts that you will read or consider, as per your habit of cherry picking.

    I didn't strip away anything or retype anything. I quoted your entire post.

    If you're going to lie, at least try to be creative about it.

    tis true, you didn't strip them away when you quoted it... you just bolded the potion you decided to focus on while ignoring everything else I typed that did not support your opinion.

    you might want to entertain the notion of taking a persons whole post into consideration in the future... it will greatly aid in comprehending what the overall sentiment is.
    if you continue to focus only on parts of the posts, you increase your chances of being wrong... such as you were in this case.

    So now that you're done lying, you're going to equivocate. You can't spend that much of your post contradicting the Bill of Rights, then slip a slipshod disclaimer in there and expect to get away with it. Your opinion was very clear.

    I sincerely do not mind you being wrong about me or my opinion.

    If you choose to believe I do not like the BOR, you are free to do so...if you chose to ignore anything I type that contradicts that belief of yours, you are free to do so as well.

    I know you are full of ****.... and I suspect you know it too... but you are free to be as full of **** as you choose to be.

    How about collective punishment. Everytime someone commits a crime with an assault weapon. We round up an equal number of assault weapon owners equal to the number of people wounded/killed, and publicly mutilate them. Bet the demand for these weapons would drop rapidly.

    BOTH seems pointlessly extreme.
    The right hold "people" accountable for their actions

    The nutters hold everything else but people for their actions.
