How many more people would have been killed had the terrorist not been wounded? A million people frightened by one person.

What a sad day when our political leaders want law abiding citizens unarmed. History is filled with events where defenseless people were killed by armed men.

A million people would have been frightened no matter what arms they were carrying. The "sad day" worf laments hasn't even been proposed. Give it a rest.

I don't remember anything about our political leaders trying to disarm anyone. Can you point to the bill and language that says that, Worf?

xscribe--A week ago, Harry Reid stated guns needed to be taken away from all people. Didn't make the big headline news, but heard it in an interview.

We already have gun laws, and background checks, so why the Obama anger?

Again, Worf, can you point to a bill and specific language that that will support the fact that our leaders want to take away our rights to ALL guns; yes or no?

xscribe-can't say that I have.

There were no specific language that supported the fact that our leaders wanted to raise taxes either, or add to the deficit. Cognitive thinkers knew it was to happen without waiting.

When it's windy, and cloudy, you can figure it's going to storm. Maybe you can't see it coming, but I look at the evidence. I suggest you do the same.

Guess what, Worf? I heard this same argument from my parents about 40 years ago. It kind of went like this: First they'll take (insert type of gun) away, and then pretty soon they will take all the guns away from us. Again, that was 40 years ago. Now, I may not be such a "cognitive" thinker as yourself, but it's cloudy and windy at my house right now, yet there is no storm. So if you'd like to stay on that paranoid track for another 40 years, be my guest!

* Cautious more then paranoid.
* Go to any gun store, and check the availability of buying ammo.
* Forty years ago we didn't have a seventeen trillion dollar debt.
* Forty years ago they're were less people on the dole.
* More people employed, with just one provider needed to support the home.

I do hope we have forty or more years. I have no problem being a fool. Hope I'm wrong, and Obama is a hero. I don't make excuses for myself, or anyone else. I just see things as they are.
