Mitts signed and issued a signing statement in support of a state Assault Weapons ban as Governor: “Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts”, Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1, 2004 with legislators, sportsmen’s groups and gun safety advocates. “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”

Sorry if that sounded hostile..

It didn't, not at all! You just asked a question as I included my words in the mix of things.

Ah, that’s a good question so we know exactly how good his speech was - for him - or the good of America/Constitution; thus, it’s citizens.

Given his tensive body armor and use of a smoke bomb do you REALLY think someone well trained would've been likely to take a shot in that chaos?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Romney spoke well today and should be commended for the bright distinction between his words and the crass narcissism of this president.

Mr anti-Constitution Romney. Seems he was very busy in MA going AGAINST the law of the land every chance he had.

They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”

Surely, he meant the abortion clinics when he spoke this/S.

You thought wrong.

The continued pussification of Americans is astounding.

Tons of people in that theater had big-gulp cups filled with drinks. They had tubs of popocorn. Instead of lobbing them at the guy to at least throw him off, they ducked and ran, because that's what the pussification of America has conditioned them to do in principle AND in practice.

I don't know what I'd have done, but I like to think I'd have done the equivalent of what Todd Beamer did: "Let's roll." Not "Let's roll over." Not rolling over in principle to a statist Republican like Romney because Obama is just too scary, and not rolling over in practice to a poor bastard nutcase with a gun because he had a smoke bomb and body armor.

Having discussed this with some guys pretty well-trained in concealed carry, here's the deal: a .45 slug hitting that body armor would have at least staggered him. A .45 slug hitting that gas mask or his throat would have ended him. A .45 slug hitting his arm or his leg or his groin would have slowed him down. Smoke bombs and semi-darkness would have made it more challenging, but do you know what adrenalin often does to how people see in the dark? I know first-hand what it does.

Maybe a concealed-carry guy in that theater -- or several of them -- would have missed. But maybe they would have hit him; the better trained and cooler-headed they were, the more likely there would have been fewere dead and injured in that poor soul's rampage.

Romney deserves no more commendation than Obama. He's still a statist who is an agent of government tyranny and "roll over" pussification of American courage.

Presidents face all kinds of situations during their terms from tragedy to other things. Between the two he sounded like his comments were more sincere to me. I especially liked his reference to scripture. Something we don’t hear to often these days.

Yes, so do I. He said he began each morning w/prayer. He knew where to look for guidance and Who he really served. Now if he had the same kind around him... but he didn’t. His heart is pure but that doesn’t mean he can’t mess up. God looks at the heart.

Those who don’t have the same spirit as him will find any excuse to bad mouth him.

WTF else can he do? Not say anything? You are one miserable creature. Romney’s going to be the nominee. You obviously are not going to vote for him so your constant nitpicking bitching will not only NOT convince others to join “your team” but just seems to be a daily exercise in futility.

This is EXACTLY why we have a 'problem' with BULLIES in our schools and EVERYWHERE these days!

50 years ago, a 'bully' would have found themselves in serious need of some Socialised Medicine after the Tar&Feather group got through with him/her!

Now its, "Let's learn to talk to the bully and get him to quit."

Are these the same?

MORMONism says that this shooter canNOT be SAVED, canNOT have his sin atoned for by the JESUS MORMONism describes.

JESUS' blood is INADEQUATE to wash away the sin of mass murder; or even ONE murder, for thatg matter.

The perp's OWN blood must be shed.


This is why UTAH has a FIRING SQUAD available to render a death sentence in it's prisons.


 

 This is lovingour neighbour as ourselves; if he needs help, help him; and if he wants salvation and it is necessary to spill his blood on the earth in order that he may be saved, spill it.

Any of you who understand the principles of eternity, if you have sinned a sin requiring the shedding of blood, except the sin unto death, would not be satisfied nor rest until your blood should be spilled, that you might gain that salvation you desire.

That is the way to love mankind.

Brigham Young

Is BrighamYoung lying?

"For unbelievers we will quote from the Scriptures - "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God." Again - "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God."

 I will now give my scripture - "Whosoever confesseth that Joseph Smith was sent of God to reveal the holy Gospel to the children of men, and lay the foundation for gathering Israel, and building up the kingdom of God on the earth, that spirit is of God; and every spirit that does not confess that God has sent Joseph Smith, and revealed the everlasting Gospel to and through him, is of Antichrist.......

 - BrighamYoung

 

 

 

Here's some MORE for MORMON's...

"Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned; and I will go still further and say, take this revelation, or any other revelation that the Lord has given, and deny it in your feelings, and I promise that you will be damned.

- JoD 3:266 (July 14, 1855)

 

 

It is true that the earth was organized by three distinct characters, namely, Eloheim, Yahovah, and Michael, these three forming a quorum, as in all heavenly bodies, and in organizing element, perfectly represented in the Deity, as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Again, they will try to tell how the divinity of Jesus is joined to his humanity, and exhaust all their mental faculties, and wind up with this profound language, as describing the soul of man, "it is an immaterial substance!" What a learned idea! Jesus, our elder brother, was begotten in the flesh by the same character that was in the garden of Eden, and who is our Father in Heaven. Now, let all who may hear these doctrines, pause before they make light of them, or treat them with indifference, for they will prove their salvation or damnation.

I have given you a few leading items upon this subject, but a great deal more remains to be told. Now, remember from this time forth, and for ever, that Jesus Christ was not begotten by the Holy Ghost.

- JoD 1:50-51 (April 9, 1852)

 

 

The rank, rabid abolitionists, whom I call black-hearted Republicans, have set the whole national fabric on fire. Do you know this, Democrats? They have kindled the fire that is raging now from the north to the south, and from the south to the north. I am no abolitionist, neither am I a proslavery man; I hate some of their principles and especially some of their conduct, as I do the gates of hell. The Southerners make the negroes, and the Northerners worship them; this is all the difference between slaveholders. and abolitionists. I would like the President of the United States and all the world to hear this.

Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.

- JoD: vol.10 p. 110: (March 8, 1863)

It looks like BrighamYoung was pretty good at bashings.

No one is convincing anyone, mittbot, as you can't CONVINCE anyone to HATE EVIL when they are ATTRACTED/DRAWN to it. The unteachable learn the hard way, when they start reaping what they have sown. Have fun when your 'harvest' comes in.

Excuse me but it is their choice to be godless and why would you think that's an insult to them? Shame on you for suggesting it - it would be the same as saying someone insulted me for saying I was God-fearing and I serve no man but GOD ALONE and His Son JESUS IS MY SAVIOR.

There is ONLY ONE GOD. And HIS WORD ONLY REIGNS.

And I don't have a religion but a RELATIONSHIP exactly how God always wanted it. I see you aren't knowledgeable about the things of God. Until you are, don't preach to me with that holier than thou attitude - a 'religious' trait.

RE: Romney: Colorado shooting is ‘unspeakable tragedy’

I wish somebody would start talking abut MORAL EVIL in this day and age.

The problem is, the moment you start talking about evil, you also imply that there is good, that there is right and wrong.

People avoid using these words because they don’t want to sound judgmental.

Agreed!!

Do like the MORMONs do!!!



Questions put to Joseph Smith: "'Do you believe the Bible?' [Smith:]'If we do, we are the only people under heaven that does, for there are none of the religious sects of the day that do'. When asked 'Will everybody be damned, but Mormons'? [Smith replied] 'Yes, and a great portion of them, unless they repent, and work righteousness." (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 119).
Joseph Smith: "for the teachers of religion of the different sects understood the same passages of scripture so differently as to destroy all confidence in settling the question by an appeal to the Bible" (from Pearl of Great Price 1:12). "What is it that inspires professors of Christianity generally with a hope of salvation? It is that smooth, sophisticated influence of the devil, by which he deceives the whole world" (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.270).
 
 
 
Brigham Young stated this repeatedly: "When the light came to me I saw that all the so-called Christian world was grovelling in darkness" (Journal of Discourses 5:73); "The Christian world, so-called, are heathens as to the knowledge of the salvation of God" (Journal of Discourses 8:171); "With a regard to true theology, a more ignorant people never lived than the present so-called Christian world" (Journal of Discourses 8:199); "And who is there that acknowledges [God's] hand? ...You may wander east, west, north, and south, and you cannot find it in any church or government on the earth, except the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.24); "Should you ask why we differ from other Christians, as they are called, it is simply because they are not Christians as the New Testament defines Christianity" (Journal of Discourses 10:230).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt proclaimed: "Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the 'whore of Babylon' whom the Lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness. Any person who shall be so corrupt as to receive a holy ordinance of the Gospel from the ministers of any of these apostate churches will be sent down to hell with them, unless they repent" (The Seer, p. 255).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt also said: "This great apostasy commenced about the close of the first century of the Christian era, and it has been waxing worse and worse from then until now" (Journal of Discourses
, vol.18, p.44) and: "But as there has been no Christian Church on the earth for a great many centuries past, until the present century, the people have lost sight of the pattern that God has given according to which the Christian Church should be established, and they have denominated a great variety of people Christian Churches, because they profess to be ...But there has been a long apostasy, during which the nations have been cursed with apostate churches in great abundance" (Journal of Discourses , 18:172).
 
 
President John Taylor stated: "Christianity...is a perfect pack of nonsense...the devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work than the Christianity of the nineteenth century." (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.167); "Where shall we look for the true order or authority of God? It cannot be found in any nation of Christendom." (Journal of Discourses , 10:127).
 
 
 
James Talmage said: "A self-suggesting interpretation of history indicates that there has been a great departure from the way of salvation as laid down by the Savior, a universal apostasy from the Church of Christ". (A Study of the Articles of Faith, p.182).
 
 
 
President Joseph Fielding Smith said: "Doctrines were corrupted, authority lost, and a false order of religion took the place of the gospel of Jesus Christ, just as it had been the case in former dispensations, and the people were left in spiritual darkness." (Doctrines of Salvation, p.266). "For hundreds of years the world was wrapped in a veil of spiritual darkness, until there was not one fundamental truth belonging to the place of salvation ...Joseph Smith declared that in the year 1820 the Lord revealed to him that all the 'Christian' churches were in error, teaching for commandments the doctrines of men" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 3, p.282).
 
 
 
More recent statements by apostle Bruce McConkie are also very clear: "Apostasy was universal...And this darkness still prevails except among those who have come to a knowledge of the restored gospel" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol 3, p.265); "Thus the signs of the times include the prevailing apostate darkness in the sects of Christendom and in the religious world in general" (The Millennial Messiah, p.403); "a perverted Christianity holds sway among the so-called Christians of apostate Christendom" (Mormon Doctrine, p.132); "virtually all the millions of apostate Christendom have abased themselves before the mythical throne of a mythical Christ whom they vainly suppose to be a spirit essence who is incorporeal uncreated, immaterial and three-in-one with the Father and Holy Spirit" (Mormon Doctrine, p.269); "Gnosticism is one of the great pagan philosophies which antedated Christ and the Christian Era and which was later commingled with pure Christianity to form the apostate religion that has prevailed in the world since the early days of that era." (Mormon Doctrine, p.316).
 
 
 
President George Q. Cannon said: "After the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized, there were only two churches upon the earth. They were known respectively as the Church of the Lamb of God and Babylon. The various organizations which are called churches throughout Christendom, though differing in their creeds and organizations, have one common origin. They all belong to Babylon" (Gospel Truth, p.324).
 
 
President Wilford Woodruff stated: "the Gospel of modern Christendom shuts up the Lord, and stops all communication with Him. I want nothing to do with such a Gospel, I would rather prefer the Gospel of the dark ages, so called" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 2, p.196).

No. Tragedy. If only guns weren’t around, this wouldn’t happen./sarc

What the Dems are looking for is a new Joe Camel. In 1996, the people had repudiated socialized medicine, tax increases, and the First Couple, but they found a scapegoat, Joe Camel, whom Big Tobacco was using to sell carcinogenic cigarettes to school children (back when I used to smoke, I found Camels entirely too harsh; for school children it would be doubly so, but no matter). So now they need a new phony issue to demagogue against, preferably a commodity available to the consumer. Presenting: Guns. It’s Big Guns and the Gun Lobby that’s marketing guns so they can make their evil profits by selling guns and bullets to psychotic killers who are looking to shoot up shopping malls and schoolyards. If only guns weren’t available, those psycho killers would go seek professional help, and not some chlorine and amonia to mix together and throw down an air vent. So it’s a tragedy, caused by guns. This will be at least one of the Dem strategies. And Mit will help them by calling it a “tragedy”. How tragic, that the presumptive nominee is so clueless.

They've chastised me for one remark - as they should you.

Oh?

Which ONE?

The scroll feature is one I use frequently and I highly recommend it. It’s almost as good as an ignore button.

Romney sounded much more presidential. Barry had to include himself in his comments on the shooting.
