    I know it seems that way, but in reality I am trying to stand up for you and me. Whatever laws we change will affect us too and the last thing we need is more legislation like the patriot act.

    Exactly, its not about standing up for the mass murdering scumbag. It's about standing up for the rule of law that guarantees all of us a fair trial rather than a summary execution.

    No, never! First off, we shouldn't use the death penalty. Secondly, there MUST be a trial. A man has the right to trial by a jury of peers; and that's what he should get. Anything else is unacceptable.

    Oh, I'm all for getting RID of legislation. Particularly things like the Patriot Act and the Real ID Act. Flush it down the toliet. We need less laws, not more.

    I certainly agree we need to get rid of those two things.

    Stand up how? Is he not entitled to have his case heard? Is he not entitled to defense? Is it not his right to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law? To have a trial by a jury of his peers? I don't think anyone will say that what this man did was good. But he is most certainly entitled to his rightful legal recourse.

    I describe what I think is a minimal and reasonable standard by which a person should be able to obtain a handgun and you declare that I don't think people should be able to bear arms at all. I take it that in your view any restriction on fire arm purchases is a threat to eliminate every and all such purchases.

    Why should there be a trial. He was arrested during the act, there were countless witnesses, what is his defense? He is dead to rights guilty. If it were Texas he would be in the fast lane to the electric chair or leathal injection.

    Situations are rarely ever this black and white, yet passions can run high. If we carve a path for this sort of activity for what may seem reasonable today, will be a tragedy tomorrow.

    If you want to discuss the trial, start your own thread about it.

    Please don't wander off the topic: Should the AZ shooter have been able to buy a gun?
