    Not really. He's a bit ticked off that what he describes as a "trivial image" has eclipsed the hard work of his fellow photographers, and says "it’s a sign of our times that somehow this image seemed to get more attention than the event itself."

    If it matters, he's from Colombia, and works for L’Agence France-Presse.

    1. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves against their ethnic-cleansing government, were arrested and exterminated.

    2. In 1929, the former Soviet Union established gun control as a means of controlling the “more difficult” of their citizens. From 1929 to the death of Stalin, 40 million Soviets met an untimely end at the hand of various governmental agencies as they were arrested and exterminated.

    3. After the rise of the Nazi’s, Germany established their version of gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, and others, who were unable to defend themselves against the “Brown Shirts”, were arrested and exterminated. Interestingly, the Brown Shirts were eventually targeted for extermination themselves following their blind acts of allegiance to Hitler. Any American military and police would be wise to grasp the historical significance of the Brown Shirts’ fate.

    4. After Communist China established gun control in 1935, an estimated 50 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves against their fascist leaders, were arrested and exterminated.

    5. Closer to home, Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayans, unable to defend themselves against their ruthless dictatorship, were arrested and exterminated.

    6. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves from their dictatorial government, were arrested and exterminated.

    genocide 57. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million of the “educated” people, unable to defend themselves against their fascist government, were arrested and exterminated.

    8. In 1994, Rwanda disarmed the Tutsi people and being unable to defend themselves from their totalitarian government, nearly one million were summarily executed.

    The total numbers of victims who lost their lives because of gun control is approximately 70 million people in the 20th century. The historical voices from 70 million corpses speak loudly and clearly to those Americans who are advocating for a de facto gun ban. Governments murdered four times as many civilians as were killed in all the international and domestic wars combined. Governments murdered millions more people than were killed by common criminals and it all followed gun control
    The EPA closure of the last lead smelter will impact Americans' ability to get ammunition:

    EPA Closure of Last Lead Smelting Plant to Impact Ammunition Production

    Now, ammunition sold in America will have to come from other countries were they are not so conscientious about the environment, and thus can be heavily regulated by the government. Isn't that convenient for those who want to take our weapons?

    Jackie Kennedy was very determined that the Kennedy years would be presented in a positive light by the press. She made requests that certain things not be published in photos. The press honored her requests. It's too bad the Obamas don't have the common sense to do the same things.

    Look, dude, I didn't make your relationship a point of debate - YOU did. If you don't like it, go cry to your mama (if she will not also kick your ass).

    How did I make MY relationship a point of debate? Pointing out what a real husband and man does and doesn't do at certain times?
    Find a woman that will put up with your immature BS and you just found a weak minded loser, or you already have one.

    True, there is a different culture in charge of the US these days. And Obama is very representative of that culture.
