Did you read the part about the next door neighbor who came home with her 7 year old daughter, saw the body lying in the gutter and decided it was best to go in the house, close the curtains and watch television.

Another example of how the youth in this country is brainwahed into being more concerned about themselves with little or no regard for others.

The studens ran out of the room instead of helping the professor while his son continued to stab him. We are raising a society of "piss ants" who have no balls - they are in the purses of their girlfirends and/or wifes.

Rush Limbaugh commented about this just yesterday saying how "unmanly" our youth have become - no balls - but when it comes to electronics and gaming especially violent games - they are all in.

I guess now the gun grabbers want to also ban knives a bows. Probably be banning baseball bats next.

Also, define "gun nutter". Most gun owners are honest, law abiding, citizens who vote, go to work every day and take care of their families. So, how can I spot one of these "gun nutters" when I see them on the street. Go forbid that I run into one in the grocery store while they're buying fish for dinner. Jeez, give me a break

Exactly

I agree about gun owners actually . Just curious to see if there would be a call for stricter bow and arrow laws.

[-] 2 points by Clancy (42) 1 year ago

We don't do anything, there really is nothing you can do. A guy killed people with a bow and knife.

The term "gun nuts" -- wow, that's a good way to attract the heartland to Occupy. Not!

I don't know where you have been for the last 10 years or so but if you haven't noticed the younger generations attitudes of this country are becoming like the third world countries - they have no respect for life.

Can't blame the NRA folks for this incident.

14,000 murders per year in this country. .

This is a violent country.

UFC the fastest growing sport, reality tv characters beating each other,. Jerry Springer etc etc etc....

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Movies, video games, the media glorification of gangsterism. This may sound 'conspiracy-theory,' but I believe it's, in part, a form of population control for the 'lower classes.' I remember seeing a documentary years ago where a young thug thought getting shot would be cool because he "didn't think it was gonna hurt." Hmmm, I wonder where he got that fucked-up idea?

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

I think its very real theory. Create disaster, and then offer solutions.

"Im from the government. Im here to help"

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6647) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Yep, and the problem for a whole lot of people is understanding who they're actually helping with their 'solutions.'

I'm sorry dailymail isn't exactly a reliable source of information....

You could start by getting info from a source in the US. In fact Wyoming to this day still has news outlets.

The Dailymail is kind of a rag.

Ok. Now what?

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Why don't you tell me?

You seem to be in agreement for such things.

Perhaps laws against walking around town with a bow and quiver.

[-] 2 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

Why its a waste of paper and time most people dont even know how to shoot a bow

Laws dont make problems go away

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (27694) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Laws give guidelines - people make any real difference.

[-] 2 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

yes but laws that are unjust are not laws at all

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (27694) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

That is another fish to fry. Right now we have just laws that are not being enforced in this country - so that would make it more of an unjust legal system.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Really?

Try walking around the streets of Atlanta with a billy club.

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

yes really

ive walked around with worse

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Cool.

You're a weaponized law breaker.

A scofflaw, wishing for a world like in The Road Warrior.

Will you be playing Mel Gibson?

[-] 2 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

love those films and would love to be lawful neutral

no its not against the law carry a weapon on the street

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

I know a young lady that was arrested there for just that thing.

Same thing in Boston.

Just because you didn't get arrested, doesn't mean it's legal.

[-] 2 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

um also looked it up not illegal

[-] 1 points by ronniepaul2012 (214) 1 year ago

Just understand that not all states honor your state's ltch if you plan to vacation with 'insurance'. There is a bill in the house to fix this, just like driver's licenses, but you also must be careful in, essentially, the blue states. Gun laws are all over the board across this country.

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 1 year ago

i noticed

[-] 0 points by ronniepaul2012 (214) 1 year ago

You DO realize gun laws are city/state specific? You would get arrested in Chicago, NYC,DC and Boston,...the very places I wouldn't want to go without a gun. Open carry is legal in most states with a license, there are a few states that actually understand the 2nd amendment and require no license.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (27694) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

More likely Gibson's fodder. But one has a dream - Hey? No matter if it is deluded.

But they make good Christmas gifts.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Now you want laws for Christmas?

Awwww. You're getting soft in your old age.

Not singling out any race but on the average blacks commit murder at six time higher compared to whites http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/homicide/race.cfm
