    In earlier years before the NRA distorted the meaning of the 2nd amendment, this argument might have ended in fisticuffs and the parties would have gone home afterwards, sore but not seriously injured.

    Following the bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Wayne LaPierre stated that the Federal law enforcement agents killed in the bombing were, “jack-booted thugs who got was coming to them.”

    President George H.W. Bush, who was a gun owner and life member of the NRA resigned with the following statement: ““…. Al Whicler, who served on my Secret Service detail when I was Vice President and President, was killed in Oklahoma City. He was no Nazi. He was a kind man, a loving parent, a man dedicated to serving his country and serve it well he did.

    "I am a gun owner and an avid hunter. Over the years I have agreed with most of the NRA’s objectives, particularly your educational and training efforts and your fundamental stance in favor of owning guns.

    "However, your broadside against federal agents deeply offends my own sense of decency and honor and it offends my concept of service to country. It indirectly slandered a wide array of government law enforcement officials who are out there, day and night, laying their lives on the line for all of us…”

    There's a Sam Elliott quote making the rounds asking if people are foolish enough to believe that criminals are going to obey gun control laws.
    Since this campus is a gun-free zone and since Chicago had 500 murders last year, it begs the question.

    This is just some left wing conspiracy to make guns look dangerous.

    Guns keep us safe?

    A 15 year old child in NM went into his parents closet and killed them with their own gun.

    Background checks for any guns, ammo limits, a required gun safe would have kept this family alive.

    One news preliminary report this evening said that both of the individuals in the argument were packing. So they pulled their toys out and proceeded to pop caps at one another.

    Obviously the solution to things like this will be to require everyone else to be packing guns, too.

    Then they can all open fire and calm the situation down immediately. When they are all dead, think of how calm and quiet it will be!

    Yeah, right . . . .
