    This is EXACTLY why the Republicans shunned and scoffed and mocked him during the Bush Administration.

    As I remember it, the Bush Administration was constantly pushing the meme that government should and can protect its citizens from ALL dangers.

    He wasn't buying it. Wasn't buying it then, and is not buying it now.

    Funny thing is, the same self-proclaimed Conservatives who shunned and mocked him then, will most likely be hailing and praising him now.

    I wonder what has changed.

    Hmmmm....what. has. changed?

    Dr. Paul is a good & decent man. He always speaks with sincerity. He would never try and use this awful tragedy for political gain like so many other shallow politicians have. I always enjoy hearing the good Doctor's thoughts on issues. Thanks.

    Is he actually saying that if everyone carried a concealed weapon, the AZ massacre would not have happened?

    First of all, the gunman got off the first shot, so someone (or many people) would have been hit prior to someone pulling out their gun.

    Secondly, if several people pulled out their guns in a crowd and started to shoot at the gunman, there would have been Doom-style carnage with all the crossfire.

    So, I'm not so sure that his point is valid in this case.

    I don't mind Ron Paul. I do think they should be able to put security in place for public political events though, to ban all weapons from being taken in.

    With that said OP, common sense isn't so common.

    Exactly the opposite. I think, and think for myself...make up my own mind. That would be why I am not a sheeple for ANY man. ;)

    Paul is an Isolationist...and I certainly am not that.
