"What is sad (and frightening) is there seems to be more and more of these mindless twits appearing every day and even voting."
FRIGHTENING??? YOU'RE the guys who are armed to the teeth.
And YOU have Congress by the nuts, or else we in the Majority could get sensible gun control laws.
My brother offered this comment:
The letter about gun control makes perfect sense. But trying to reason with a gun nut is about the same as having a discussion with your cat: it might seem satisfying to YOU, but doesn't accomplish much.
I've lived a perfectly enjoyable life for 70+ years, without ever owning a gun of any kind. I've witnessed half of my male relatives killed or injured by their beloved guns, one as young as 4 years old. (I grew up in Texas, home of more artillery than half the rest of the U.S. owns.)
I guess I'll just never understand the worship of, and neurotic need to own a boatload of weapons. If someone could explain it to me, I'm listening.
Jan, You're right on about the idiocy of average citizens needing weapons with military mode destruction. Hunters, if you really need 100 rounds to get that deer, maybe you need a different sport!
The NRA is the sole reason that every mentally unstable criminal type in our country is armed to the teeth, since this group successfully fought every proposed law designed to control access to even the most destructive military weaponry. The NRA is now mostly a tool of the arms manufacturers for selling their hideous products!! A majority of NRA members actually SUPPORT sensible laws such as were passed in our state!!
One thing, Jan, it is more like 300 million weapons, not 100 million, that would have to be confiscated! Quite an impossible task!!!
Gosh, Giovanna Battista Grosso and Helen Sabin, calm down!
I read Cyndy Kulp's letter and thought it prettty mild.
Lamborn was just out of line with his remark......there are plenty of ways to express his political disagreements without such hurtful words. He was just mimicking what is spewed forth on hate radio these days.
Jason Martin said it quite well re Lamborn's unfortunate reference:
"If you're a politician, where every word matters, you have to be smarter than that. To say anything remotely negative is a dumb idea."
Jan Brazill, as always, you've made some great points that debunk the arguments that atheists have caused MORE people to die than religions have!! (I think I hear Tom Pedigo's head exploding!!!) As atheists, we are NOT one coherent group, anymore than historians are one coherent group! NOT believing in ONE particular ideology just means that we have other ideas about how and why we exist as human beings and what our purpose in life is.
Jan, I might add that there is no evidence that Hitler was ever even excommunicated by the Catholic Church for all his atrocities......there IS some evidence that the Pope may have colluded with the Nazis.
JML CASSIAN is proud that he's still thinking the same way he did when he was 10 years old!!!
A living satire of religiosity.
