    No excuses for this little bastard. Plenty of people have had it tougher than him and not killed innocents.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I guess the zone wasn't "gun free".

    Oh, I know. I'm just not holding my breath seeing the judge's history and performance so far. In a crime where the ONLY victims are 9 black people, he thought it appropriate to also comfort the killer's family. That doesn't give me much hope.

    read the post after yours and think - hard. You have a problem.

    Gun violence will never be solved by more guns.

    Funny how the only place that people go on shooting sprees is where no one else has a gun....
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Kind of true except for last week at the Dallas police station.

    He does have a point, and while I would not go so far as to say the pastor is guilty of anything - when you ban guns in a building - only law-abiding citizens are going to comply.

    This is just another "Boy, if I had been there I would have kicked his arse" crap". He wasn't there and has no idea how it would have went down if he was. He may have crapped his pants too. Nobody really knows how they would have reacted in a situation as this. He may have been able to stop him from further shooting or he may have been the first shot. You can never be 100% safe in life.

    Knew a guy who fought in Vietnam and after he killed his first Viet Cong he threw up. Not every thing is like how it is portrayed in the movies. Anyone ever have a fistfight like seen in a movie?

    Thats not at all true. They still do all of those things. Admit it. WHat you HATE is that they oppose every attempt at forcing new laws. You find them unreasonable when it comes to anti-gun legislation. Thats why you have such vehemence and hatred towards them.

    I left due to LaPierres "Jack booted thugs" comment. They definitely should rethink some of the things said. Still...while we can point to the occasional instance that is just radically over the top, the fact remains they DO actively stand for 120 million legal gun owners.
