Liberals are anxious to talk about workplace or school shootings when it suits their political agenda. Thats why the usual suspects are observing a vow of silence regarding Wednesdays armed attack on the Family Research Council (FRC).

The nations capital maintains an all-out ban on open or concealed carry of any firearm, as it refuses to recognize the Second Amendment right to bear arms outside the home.

BTW, considering the high priority that the LAM gives Women’s topics on their agenda, it is curious that the LAM has not realized that any Research on Families will reveal that Women are ESSENTIAL to Families.
Is the LAM then apathetic towards Women who have Families, and thus apathetic toward FAMILY VALUES?
BTW, BTW, when was the last time that YOU saw the phrase “Family Values” in a daily newspaper?
Where’s the “football”; I volunteer!
