    Most state constitutions allow guns. But I know you're a big gun controller.

And right from little many are taught it is dangerous and nonproductive to mess with peoples religious beliefs.

    Once upon a time, when we had mass killings in which firearms were involved, rational people discussed it and ideas for legislation were introduced and debated. We just saw three young people slaughtered in Chardon, Ohio and instead of spurring national discussion, those who want to do so are charged with using dead children to promote an agenda which is never identified.

    There simply is no current environment for rational discussion on this topic.
    Not with you anyway.

    Thank you for admitting you could not discuss the topic as I stated.

    expressing understanding for why a terrorist act was done, and then sugegsting positive results from such terrorist attacks, looks like tacit approval to me.

    you state you UNDERSTAND why McVeigh killed hundreds of innocent civilians.

    you then go on to suggest that there have been some positive benefits from his actions, since there haven't been any more Wacos.

    you appear to be giving this a thumbs up...with your hand behind your back so no one can see it.
    I have to agree with Goshin on this one.

    McVeigh's response, as unfortunate as it was, was intended as a message against the government who had gone after Ruby Ridge and Waco.
    If you think Americans should not worry about their government coming for them...

    Everyone thought Randy Weaver was paranoid, but they came for him.

    Frank Clearwater and Buddy Lamont

    Fred Hampton and Mark Clark

    Kent State

    Molly Maguires

    Whiskey Rebellion

    MOVE

    etc...

    The United States government in no way has its hands clean when it comes to going after people who dared to speak against it. This goes for Federal , State and local entities.

    There is no "The" Militia. There have been several militia's, government organized and citizen organized.
