    Pretty amazing. Wonder if this made it on MSNBC, or if it would be cleared by most Democrats in Congress.

    It's really out of phase with most of the crap posted by the usual suspects here.

    Anyone who owns a gun should at least have to undergo
    regular "psychological/psychiatric" testing to determine if they are mentally stable!

    How did this guy get a clip holding 31 bullets?

    I thought those were illegal.

    I see.

    Well I suppose one of the OTHER prices of freedom is eternal vigilance against NUTTERS armed with guns.

    25% of the American population is or has been treated for psychological disorders, folks.

    There are an estimated 300,000,000 guns in this nation.

    Ya'll can do the math, right?

    What about the many "gun owners" in SE Washington, DC or Prince Georges County Maryland. How would their psych eval be accomplished? There has been 11 murders in 12 days in PG county. Some are reporting 12 murders but one was a home owner who shot a home invader. Good for him. That's not murder, it's protecting the home. Gun regs and psych evals would only affect people who obey the law. Come up with a program to cure the decay of society but leave my guns and my mental status alone.

    Guns will neither cure nor cause the downfall of this nation.

    Guns are NOT the problem.

    They are the symptom of the problem.

    I think if everyone knew that they'd get blasted from all sides by gun-packing citizens they'd be less likely to open up in a crowd.

    Gun laws only prevent law-abiding citizens from committing violence.

    And who gets to decide of they are stable? Would you say that someone who complained about hidden cameras in her bedroom was stable or unstable?


    Student Sues College for Having Her Committed Over Hidden Cam

    Don't you think the right thing to do under the circumstances was to at least send someone to look at the vent to see if there was a camera? Yet you prefer to simply lock people up and take away their constitutional rights simply because you do not like what they are saying. I bet you are one of the people who complained about the PARTIOT Act before he supported it.
