For these reasons, and a whole host of others, these people have decided the basic rules of society do not apply to them. As a result they need to be removed. Keeping them alive does nothing except waste taxpayer money on people who will never be productive members of society.
Why are you talking about Congress all of a sudden?
with only people in the usa being able to play.
That's what the rest of us were wondering about the World Series in baseball before Montreal and Toronto got teams.
They don't seem to want to play nice with the rest of the world, and frankly isn't everyone about to start getting tired of going out of our way to be some tolerant of those that show absolutely no tolerance to anyone different than they are?
For a second there, I thought you were talking about Congress.
a) I was only a few years older than those students.
b) English is my second language.
No, they only level the playing field. While having a gun will deter the criminal that doesn't want confrontation, it doesn't deter the criminal that is looking to steal guns. It is a simple concept that seems to be lost to the anti gun types.
That's nice. We need more guns to protect ourselves from the gun-toting bad guys who got theirs by stealing our previous stash. Sounds like the only people winning this game are the people selling guns.
The only excuses for guns are the hobbies of hunting and target shooting. It's not worth it.
The primary purpose of protecting the right to own firearms is to allow the civilian populace of the United States to maintain the necessary power to resist and possibly violently overthrow an oppressive, out-of-control government.
Hunting and target shooting are just side benefits.
Uh, yeah. About that. Did you notice the constant erosion of your rights since 9/11? Where's the revolt? Where's the outrage? Your representatives have sold you down the river to score cheap political points. Think about that while going through your complimentary TSA groping before your next flight.
And please get your act together before Stephen Harper borrows more ideas from down south.
Would you rather A) be unarmed, or B) have a concealed pistol.
In short, would I want to spend every waking moment surrounded by people who are armed to the teeth for the highly unlikely offchance that I happen to be in a situation like this one at some point, and then hope that amateurs take him down without hitting even more innocent people in the smoke, darkness, and chaos?
There was an incident in Montréal (Canada) last year where police officers firing upon a criminal hit and killed a random passerby about half a block away. If trained police officers in relatively controlled conditions can kill innocent people, I'd hate to see what would happen if a bunch of amateurs started firing in a crowded and smoky movie theater.
What happened to just being good to each other, self sacrifice.. about actually "giving" and caring for people
The American "Christian" Right abolished all that. Didn't you hear? It's all about judging others now.
