I deplore the idea that we are somehow a violent culture, as opposed to a violent nature.
Violence is as American as apple pie - H. Rap Brown.

Re: Okay ... off the debate horse and onto reality.
The problem is our government is run on the "If they give us an inch, we'll take a mile" philosophy.
No, that's not our government. That's the purely imaginary government that gun nuts have invented, so that they can have something to rail against.

Re: 9 dead in SC
I see you didn't listen to Trump the other day.
I listened. It was hilarious. Standup comedians across the nation are applauding his decision to run.

Re: Back to the Gun Topic
As long as we are back to guns, there's this story from Georgia:
quote:
A Georgia man lost his leg this week after he packed a lawn mower full of explosives and repeatedly shot at it with a rifle until it blew up, according to local media reports.
Man shoots lawnmower
There's a video clip at the linked page.
