Nice bitch slap... Now get 4 1" boards.
Another great reason to never have kids. All that worrying and freaking out sounds exhausting. No thanks!
The title contradicts the article, Leah. You provide examples of many changes taking place, locally. And those changes recognize the fact that at some point a deranged person may get his hands on a firearm and try and harm our kids. No matter what other laws we ever pass, we have to prepare for that possibility.
It should be obvious to most that gun violence is ofter facilitated by idiots who leave weapons in their unlocked vehicles. I mean do we really think felons walk in and buy guns from legitimate sources? When a violent crime is committed with a stolen weapon that doesn't involve breaking and entering, the gun owner should be charged as an accessory before the fact.
A couple of points of correction and clarification that give a more honest representation for debate:
"The Congressional stalemate meant even the passage of reasonable laws were stalled and eventually swept under the rug of the Capitol building." I will give you the fact that no laws were passed but reasonable depends on what side of the argument you are coming from.
"Last week, another school lockdown had a much different outcome. One student at a Colorado high school was critically injured when a lone gunman entered her school and began shooting. She was shot at point blank range. The gunman then turned his weapon on himself." He turned the weapon on himself when the armed school resource officer confronted him with her gun drawn.
It would be great to get guns out of the hands of crazy and criminal minded people but taking them away from law abiding and sane people at the same time is not the right way to do it.
Nice bit of pre-editorializing, Paul. Yes we know "scheme" is synonymous with "plan", but most always with a negative connotation. You ought to leave the opinion pieces to Haire or Mat, they've got no credibility to lose.
That guy is a creep. Just seconds away from the true CL killer. Buyer beware
I hope he uses his big-assed Dumbo ears to fly far the fuck away from here.
"State Sen. Lee Bright is...blaming government regulation for his trucking business' failure."
Naturally, he belongs to the Party of Personal Responsibility™!
What I 26 really needs is 3 lanes from here to Columbia.
Merry Chrimbus one and all. Remember everybody you must keep your "Chrimbus Bush" trimmed and wet in order for the "Winter Man" to come out of his Winter Cave to put presents in your Chrimbus Bush.
So wtf happened with Nick Fury, Kingpin, Perry White and Heimdall?
Why does everyone care about St. Nick? His return only marks the coinciding return of Krampus!
That was not the answer I gave. Try again, or be ignored.
So the answer is "because you're wrong and I'm right"...well, that certainly clears things up?
Obviously, you recognize you don't have a logically defensible position here.
Arguing over fictitious characters is crazy, but it shows how pervasive racism is. When the movie, The Hunger Games, opened last year, some white people were upset that Rue and Cinna were black, despite the fact that the author clearly stated so. Now, everyone (black and white) is getting all riled up over Santa's race. Can we just stop the madness? My kids don't care what color Santa Claus is... they're more concerned about being good so they can get everything on on their lists.
My nephew came across this story while researching the death penalty. I hope this case gets reopened. KL
"So, why is one 'class' of victim more special than another? I've never heard a good answer for that."
And you never will hear an answer that satisfies you because you are far too entrenched in your outdated conservatism to understand why certain classes of people need protections beyond that already in the law.
On the other hand, perhaps if you think about why you feel that straight, white, Christian males need special protection from the encroaching hordes of non-straight, non-white, non-Christian, non-male marauders at your door you might begin to understand what's going on there.
