In attempting to post: "Gee, if she'd only had an assault rifle she could have been much more effective in ridding us of those awful people who are different than the ideal American. (Whatever that is . . .)"

I was trying to point out the irrational fear and hate so many Americans seem to have for anyone they believe to be "less desirable" than those of us who are REAL Americans.

It was an attempt to point out some of the bias that seems to be shared by so many around us -- even here in Utah. Just this afternoon I overheard a neighbor spouting about someone he believes to be one of those "illegal" Mexicans. A week or so ago, another man was grumbling that he thinks they should all be shot.

Hatred is dirty. And it's much too alive and well in Utah.

We should take away subway systems!

Also, anyone who wants to step onto a train platform should be finger printed and put in a federal database.

That's it! We either need to ban subways or shoving, then all these problems will go away.

I've ridden those subways a lot. There's really nothing preventing someone from being pushed or falling in front of the trains.

It's just time for a safety update that's all. I've ridden trains at airports that have barriers to keep people from danger. A commercial enterprise would never operate like that.

Just like gun owners could be reasonable and have gun locks. Even bio-metric gun locks could be readily available but the NRA and lemmings won't be reasonable.

@Screwdriver

Why do you have to insult the people who see the issue differently from you? Is everyone who supports the NRA's position unreasonable and a lemming? Do you really believe there aren't any reasonable people that might have a good reason to disagree with your stance?
