Its the Guns, Stupid

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun"National Rifle Association (NRA) Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre

Umm, no. That doesn't work. This happened while LaPierre was speaking today.


"We ask why there is violence in our schools but we have systematically removed God from our schools"Mike Huckabee

That's not true either. From the same Pennsylvania shooting linked to above:

During a news briefing at the Geeseytown Fire Hall, officials confirmed the woman was shot and killed at a church. The Associated Press reported that the woman was fatally shot while decorating for a children's Christmas party at the Juniata Valley Gospel Church.

I suppose God was systematically removed from that church as well?

No. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is to get rid of all guns in the first place. Hunting? Eh, maybe. Second Amendment? Its outdated at best.

I've always been supportive of the second amendment although I can't explain why. I've never owned a gun and have no desire whatsoever to own one, or to allow anyone in my house if they are carrying one. Maybe I just thought I had to support it because it's there...IN the constitution.

Well, after the events of this month, I have thrown those views out the window and I would have no reservations about tossing the second amendment out as well.
