    The media did cover it, two years ago. Thats how I was able to remember that I'd seen the coverage before.


    The Columbine shooting was 15 years ago. PLEASE link to your messages complaining of dragging up old news to try to make a point by the repeated mentioning of Columbine. I am assuming you are impartial in your criticism of old news so of course you have been complaining of people bringing up past mass kills. Link please.
    I think you are comparing little green apples to big blood red oranges.

    Look, I'm glad that kid did what he did and he is a hero for saving himself and his sister. I wouldn't take that away from him. But I question Brietbarts motives for recycling an old story and making it appear like it happened yesterday. Imo, that is deceitful and manipulative.

    Very well said Luther... pity it will likely fall on deaf ears to those who most need to hear it.

    Recycling old stories to make them appear recent seems to be a fairly new tact by Breitbart.
    Breitbart is recycling as we speak, no?










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    What your message says is that you really didn't care what otherwise would have happened to that kid.

    Once again, I wish to point out that NO anti-gun person on any thread has yet to answer this:

    Millions and millions of women in the USA are raped. Some of those additionally horrifically permanent injuried, disabled, scarred and quite a few murdered. I have yet to read of any woman being sexually assaulted when she had a gun. Of the millions and millions of women raped, can you point to even ONE example of that happening when she was armed?

    Would it be accurate to say that you don't really care so won't respond?

    The Tampa news a few days ago ran the most dispicable editorial I've read in a long time - maybe you agree with it. It was very long. A woman explained that she had been raped, been robbed plus had been violently mugged 3 times. In 2004 she bought a gun. Fell in love with it. Practiced often. And she was not harmed by anyone.

    But men started telling her that her having a gun meant she was a coward, was afraid of men, and that she should not have guns because that is not the way a woman should act. This apparently after she became a big newspaper editorialist including for the NY Times. So, in her editorial many newspapers ran, she explained that being raped, assaulted and mugged is just part of being a woman and if a woman arms herself in self defense then she is just a coward, is afraid of men, and isn't acting womanly.

    As I explained, a person should take the time to make their house secure. Few homes are because of saving a few dollars on cheap locks and doors. And yes, a person should arm themselves in self defense - or accept the risks by recklessly not doing so and then not burdening others with your woes if you apathy about your own safety and others in your house doesn't go well. If you don't care about the safety of you and your loved ones before something bad happens to prevent it from happening, why should anyone care after it does?

    And, finally, raping and burning people alive in their own homes as they also burn the resident to destroy evidence, dna etc also no longer is all that rare. Do you read and watch the news?
    The problem is that I think you watch the news and are scared all too more often. I went through a bloody Balkan war where unarmed old people, women, children, were in deed being killed, raped, burned, and their possessions were taken away and burned by Serbian forces. This was not a rare happening like this one but it was a daily routine for 77 days.

    But even I do not go crying in hysteria and panic as much as you do. When you cry out like that in fear you make it sound like there is such a Balkan war going on in USA. These two thugs choose to attack what they may perceive a "weak" house with only two adolescents living there. It is not like families with adults in them are being systematically targeted from thugs who now have advanced to using home invasions, is it?

    You are overgeneralizing from a single case and call me apathetic and that I do not care about these adolescents. That is a groundless presumption. I told you to calm down from panicking like in a manner someone close to you would do by slapping you back into your senses (the technique though vulgar works). Not that I do not care about these adolescents.

    So my comments are not about the gun issue that it seems never to get old in USA. It is about you trying to influence everyone here to panic and get them to have guns with your emotional appeals to fear. They should not work to people who use reason for they should be able to see various flaws of overgeneralisation based on single case used as a flawed analogy.

    That this case may somehow be applied to all other people in USA requires statistical data.

    Whether other people in USA have only and only one solution from threat (apart from buying guns) if they want to be saved from a certain harm - and that of course is to buy guns, is also flawed for one can think of many alternatives to protect oneself.

    Back during the time that the fraudulent 1994 “assault weapon”*ban was being worked through Congress, there was a very intense effort made on the part of the news media and the entertainment industry to spread the impression that “assault weapon” and “semi-automatic” referred to guns that fired like machine guns; to make the benighted masses think that it was machine guns and similar weapons that were being targeted by the proposed ban.

    There are still too many people stupid enough to believe this, nearly twenty years later.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
