So this is what the founding fathers had in mind? When will someone have the guts to stand up to the NRA. I wish someone would open fire at their next convention, in the name of the Second Amendment.
This comment has received 9 thumbs up and 3 thumbs down. Civility!
Just checked, and the comment’s been removed, but not before it got 9 thumbs up and only 3 thumbs down—probably not from self-described trolls but from many of the right-thinking people who’ve been spewing about “the NRA.”

I think this country has hit a new low with the sensless killing of so many innocent children. At what point do people stop defending the right to bear arms? This world would be a safer place and there would be less mass killings if guns ownership was made illegal. I wonder how the sicko NRA is going to spin this story.
I highlighted that one because of the middle two sentences. Rarely do they wind up striking so close to the Bill of Rights, or whatever that hoary old thing is called.

As a parent, I am very torn by the photo published of this young mother. On the one hand, I don't want her private anguish violated. On the other, I want all the guns rights advocates, Wayne LaPierre and his NRA crazies, and all the politicians who take blood money from the NRA and block gun control legislation and more money for mental health programs to look at this photo. This is YOUR doing. This is the reality of your sick, evil gun promoting culture...
It's interesting here to see the whiplash between the first part and the second. In other words, somewhere inside, you do want her private anguish to be violated. It's so handy!

22 first graders are dead. And all the hyper-partisan hacks can do is whine about Obama.
That's where their priorities are, I guess.
That first sentence comes from one of the best hyper-partisan hacks in this comments section.

And here the Tea Party Anti-Patriots are worried about the UN Agenda 21, a completely bogus scenario dreamed up by Karl Rove and his cronies to scare people into buying MORE guns, sick and sad people
Oh, I'd love to see "EqualRights"'s response to this comment.
If someone did open fire there, they would be gunned down tout suite! Probably the best example of the 2A in action!
