    Hearsay is not evidence that a person is mentally unstable nor is "unfit for service" mean that someone is mentally unstable. Plus he couldn't have been that unstable if he researched and planed.

    Do you know what a mentally unstable person is? It doesn't mean you can't plan or research. Many serial killers are mentally unstable and yet, they plan and research their actions. They're not mentally retarded.

    I'll bet you'd love to have a tricky subjective measure like that in place to help keep people from getting guns, wouldn't you?

    You come off like a knee-jerk liberal. Way to overreact to some common sense suggestions.


    If Sarah Palin had wrote it, you'd be holding it up, applauding her courage.

    Seriously? You really believe that? The support for Palin would plummet if she was stupid enough to make a comment like that.

    Considering the anti-2nd amendment stance of many liberals, one who actually believes in the 2nd amendment as a right has every reason to worry when a lib says they want common sense gun control. common sense gun control to a lib means more infringements on the 2nd amendment.

    If Sarah Palin had wrote it, you'd be holding it up, applauding her courage.

    I pretty sure to Sarah Palin that common sense gun control would be free firearm safety and usage classes to youths, not more infringements on the 2nd amendment.
    If Palin did mean common sense gun control the same way Obama or any other liberal means common sense gun control I would still speak out against her trying to **** on the 2nd amendment. I would speak out against anyone trying to **** on the 2nd amendment regardless if they are a conservative,liberal or what ever.

    If you looked at any of my posts regarding Palin you would know that I am no fan of Palin.

    HA "common sense" gun control, what a joke. The government thugs said I shouldve shown "common sense" when I shot the thug who tried to rob me a few years back.

    Ed, you sound like another Stormwatcher who wondered over to DP hoping to recruit some conservatives.

    I believe that the message doesn't matter, it's the messenger.
