    We have 2.3 million people in jail, another 5 million on parole. We haven’t exactly been throwing a ****ing Kindergarden picnic.
    Yeah...we kinda have made it a picnic. People are in and out of jails and they run the jails while they are in. Its always the same bull****. "We want to do something about violence" great...attack those committing the violence! "Oh...no...its not their fault. Life is hard, they have it rough, we have to help them" OH...My bad...I thought you wanted to target VIOLENCE. "No...we want to target guns and the law abiding citizens and pretend we are doing something about violence". Ah...well...that DOES make more sense...

    Exactly how many million people in jail would it be before it stopped being a picnic? We already have 1/4 of the world’s inmates, should we be shooting for 33%? 40%? 50%? Higher?

    P.S. So these myriad of shootings are occurring in our [picnic] correctional facilities, now?

    All of the violent offenders. See...that's the difference. You are the kind of person that thinks stink causes ****. The number of violent offenders in prison is IRRELEVANT. It's not how many. Its what they are.

    …and you continue to not answer my questions. Again, the ‘?’ are there to help you figure out which sentences are question if that is the problem. If you are instead willfully ignoring my questions, as increasingly seems likely, I guess just carry exposing yourself as a raging hypocrite fool.

    On that we agree. I don't believe ANYONE should be jailed solely for things like drug use, prostitution, etc.

    yes, we need to release those convicted of victimless crimes to make room for more people convicted of new and improved victimless crimes.

    Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., who was shot in the head more than two years ago during a mass shooting in a Tucson parking lot, opened the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing Wednesday with a call to action on gun violence.

    "Speaking is difficult but I need to say something important," she said in a slow, deliberate voice to the dais of senators. "Violence is a big problem, too many children are dying, too many children. We must do something.
    "Americans are counting on you," she said.
    - Senate gun hearing opens with Giffords' call for action

    As I was reading the article I came across a perfect example of what I feel the problem is with the "gun restriction" crowed...

    Giffords husband astronaut Mark Kelly, added this statement paraphrased...

    "Called for legislators to close the loophole that allows private sellers to sell their guns without background checks, strengthen gun trafficking penalties for trafficking, and eliminate limitations on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study gun violence.

    He also called for "a careful and civil conversation about the lethality of the firearms we permit to be legally bought and sold.
    "

    What does the center for disease control have to do with gun crime? This should worry people as they are trying to use a completely unrelated government body to manufacture, yes manufacture another reason to strip our 2nd amendment rights.

    The last highlighted statement is just beyond stupid as far as I am concerned. If I am at the point where I am actually aiming a weapon at someone in defense of my life, loved ones or even property I want it to be as lethal as possible if it has come to that point. So only police and government should have "lethal" firearms?

    This whole gun restriction mess is getting out of hand.


    Oh don't be silly. SOmeone who doesn't mind murdering a federal judge and a bunch of innocent bystanders and crippling a beautiful and smart well liked congresslady is going to obey gun laws if they just would pass a few more
