The real issue of course that should be discussed is our culture of death. Our military has done some very bad things. We've had 1,000,000 murders a year via abortion since Roe v. Wade. Those are ****ing kids. It's not even arguable anymore with all the 4-D imagery capabilities now. You can't cry about a 6 year olds potential prom dates, marriages, occupations etc. and not do the same for these other potential lives that have been exterminated on a far grander scale. Our national policy is death.
overpopulation is the biggest cause for all this crap IMO.
Yeah, that's what we need. More kids born to idiots who can't even spell condoms let alone care for and raise a child. And before you respond, please spare me the adoption hoopla.
Another false analogy - on many levels. But I'll just say even McVeigh says he didn't know about the day care center and would have considered another target if he did.There was a mass murder of 19 children under the age of 6 at a daycare in Oklahoma in 1995, before the majority of the posters on this board were out of elementary school. No guns or assault rifles were used.
I think it's quite clear that the media does the exact opposite - and that is it makes people like you go out and buy more guns.The media wants you outraged. Their whole purpose in life is to make people like Thriller crap their pants and shake his "tiny fists" every time some bad happens.
Look I'm not much for taking the moral high road and I'll be the first to admit that I say some callous **** on this board from time to time. But holy **** guy, 20 six year old boys and girls get executed and your reaction is **** happens?Horrible crap happens. Get used to it. Luckily it only happens to a small percentage of the population. Most of us escape it, some of us don't. If you live long enough, bad stuff will happen to you or somebody you love.

The only thing I'm pointing out is death. I read something on the Daily Kos about "Culture of Death" where of course the only thing they mentioned was guns. If you're going to talk about something, point out the elephant in the room or leave the subject alone entirely. The gun debate doesn't make sense until you touch on other issues.
Usually when a mother gets an abortion it because the mother and father do not want the child or are not capable of raising the child..... or the child will likely be born unhealthy and diseased due to the mother or fathers health/drug issues.
So would you prefer that all these fetuses you speak of be born to parents that do not want them and then get neglected and abused growing up... struggle in school, get into hard drugs and crime and then become one of these psychos that go on shooting sprees. Now some of them would get put up for adoption and possibly get a adopted by a great loving family.... however most would stay with thier deadbeat parents and suffer abuse and neglect..... and even some that get adopted would always feel alienated and not wanted (due to being given up for adoption) or feel like they dont belong in the world.
I am happier with the abortions unfortunately
Humans can survive on very little, so I'm not quite sure where that argument comes from. There are billions out that probably are convinced they have pretty great lives, despite the fact that we think their lives must suck. I've seen it in India with my own eyes. Or even in South Provo where the average household takes home ~ minimum wage, yet somehow is teeming with life.

The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter.
"As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them," he said.
Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision.
"I'm not beating myself up cause I didn't shoot him," said Meli. "I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself."
I need to go get my CC. I'll carry my 9mm around with me. I'd like a few more guns but won't get any more with out a gun safe first.
Having guns and especially assault rifles is really important. I'm not going to pay attention to facts that say that countries that have gun bans haven't become totalitarian dictatorships or that gun-related mortality rates plummet because facts aren't important. Having a gun is really important, though. Probably the most important thing there is or could ever be.
