    This is incorrect. It's merely an acknowledgement of human behavior and statistics. If anything, it is perhaps your major flaw in understanding humans and math.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    No...its not over the top. its stupid. It is in no way a 'comparison'. The only people that would try to force that square peg into a round hole are people that WANT it to fit.

    Most of those people that get worked up over the second amendment are tired of ****heads attacking their rights on a regular basis. Oh...and we also already TAKE CARE OF our children. And since you like comparisons, its pretty ridiculous that people that are so readily pro slaughter of the unborn actually pretend to care about 'the children'.

    I tend to agree.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Then I say grow a pair. Criticism and what you call attacks are part of life. And while I don't support abortion, those who do actually argue it is not yet viable life. So even there you find a difference.

    So, someone went over the top. You matched them. Feel better?

    Because there is no middle ground for giving up ones rights.

    Prove it. Cops are a reactionary force at best. Them being in the right place at the right time is next to nil.

    No fear here. Any way he was the one telling me I would get my ass whooped in Oz for speaking like this there. I highly doubt it seeing as we get quite a few tourists from there and I have met many.
    And everyone I spoke to hates their country's gun laws.

    Bull****. The OP does not even comment on the shootings outside the quote. It's the lowest form of politics, exploiting the dead. I can just see Maggie running to the computer "YES! A bunch of people dead so I can bitch about congress!".
    You provided no insight on the story other than suggesting that congress should look into it. If people wish to comment on the motives of your request, the legitimacy of the request, or the idea of such a request in relation to the action that occured then they are discussing the topic YOU presented in the OP. YOU chose to be exploitative and attempt to capitalize on the deaths of others to push your own political issues with the Trayvon Martin case, and if people disagree with doing such a thing or using this horrific incident to do such, YOU have to deal with it just like anyone else that makes a disgusting political point has to deal with people disagreeing with them about it
    No not surprised at all that you started this thread with:
