    Is this supposed to be an argument in favor of gun ownership?

    What Obama and the gun grabbers wanted to hear from the CDC was that homicide was the leading cause of gun deaths, but it just so happens that it's suicides. Go figure. I could of told them that, but they were to interested in trying to support their stupid fears to listen.

    Not a lot?

    Compared to what? A war?
    200 rounds is like 30 minutes on the range.
    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.

    It's certainly more than a "couple."

    There is now way that article leads with Illionois or Chicago man had he been from there.
    Was he at the range or did he even claim to be going to the range?

    Or about six seconds if you open fire in view of the White House. (including the time it takes for your bullet-riddled corpse to slump to the ground)

    We do have the right to end our own lives. You know, the whole controlling your destiny thing. Besides, its a mental health problem, not a gun problem. Guns are just a means to an end and if you ban them they will just pick other means towards that end.

    Its too early to assume he's conservative.

    Re: Armed man arrested near White House wanted ‘fire a couple of shots,’ police say

    The part that I found more talk worthy is....

    Authorities charged Briggs with a carrying a pistol outside of a home or business, a felony charge. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.
    Umm..excuse me? Its a felony offense to "bear" arms now? Last I knew the 2nd Amendment does not say that people have a right to keep and bear arms "only as long as you are in your home or buisness". Kind of makes me wonder if he didn't do what he did so that law could be challenged in a court. In which case...more power to him. I'll eagerly await the decision of SCOTUS on this one.
    I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang

    My mind and my heart are saying I'm in my twenties. My body is pointing at my mind and heart and laughing its ass off. ~ Kal'Stang
