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.
@one old manWe 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.
@ScrewdriverWhy 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?
