    But let's not bog down into that now. As I said, the last thing we need is for you pro gun people to make this into a political issue right now (especially considering how limited the details are at the moment). Let's respect the fallen first, and then we can use the 2353272078509 different threads to discuss guns.

    Any thoughts ?


    "A student at a Nevada middle school opened fire on campus, killing a staff member who was trying to protect other children, police said Monday.

    The suspected gunman was also dead, and authorities say no shots were fired by law enforcement.

    Two other students were critically injured in the violence that erupted around 7:15 a.m., shortly before classes began Monday. One is out of surgery and the other is doing well, according to police.

    Police said between 150 and 200 officers responded to the shooting.

    Students from the middle school and next door elementary school were evacuated to the nearby high school, and classes were canceled."
    Holy carp! That's a bit excessive.

    Really how. His or her death while tragic, has no impact on my rights.

    Almost 314 million people in the US. 2/314000000 is about zero. Secondly, what do you want to do? Freak out and start having the government work against the rights of all 314 million? Hardly seems justified to me.

    No, the solution is to maintain a clear head and respond rationally.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Again, as I said before, could you please show a little respect to the deceased? Now is not the time to make this a political issue.

    Damn right. I'll be happy trade a few dead kids for my right to play with really fun toys.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    We're tired of getting beaten to the punch by people eager for any excuse to violate our human rights.

    And the left was dancing on the graves of the Newtown children before the last brass case hit the ground.
    Really? You missed his offshoot on "gun-free zones"?

    6 posts in and it already became a tool to push political issues, as it always is.

    And you were A) happy they did so or B) upset they did so?

    Oh...so when the gun control crowd does it it's offensive, but when the pro gun crowd does it, it's okay?
    I think the point was you focused singularly on the "pro gun crowd" showing respect when in reality both sides have individuals routinely showing little respect. Typically, it's a mad dash by BOTH sides to be the first to politicize the issue. And generally you have people from bot hsides who gets upset when someone dares to mention the political talking points of the other side.

    You're right that neither side is clean in regards to that, the point lizzie was making I believe was that your one sided broad condemnation is a rather curious.
