    The Leftists hate him so much because he was always right on.

    Bullshit.

    Actually I just went and asked Ronald Reagan (who died in 2004 but apparently news travels slow to SinCity). Here's what he had to say:

    ".............................."

    So you are saying that SOCIETY is responsible for the actions of murderers?

    That's great news. Now all of us who own firearms are OFF THE HOOK.

    "Society" is Reagan's term, but that quote had nothing to do with firearms or murderers anyway (and it's over 40 years old). The title of this thread is a complete fraud.

    What "hook" were you on? Or would it be self-incriminating to say?

    Ronnie Ray-Gun didn't say a word about these deaths cuz he's dead.

    BUT, I do agree with the quote.

    Too bad the rw's don't. If they did, they'd quit whining about having to buy their own health care insurance.

    Oh wait, Ronnie gave you all lazy freeloading rw's free health care.

    Never mind.

    Liberals are so anti gun especially after shootings (though of course only of suburban whites, daily black shootings don't bother liberals at all) because liberals have such limp wrists they can't use a gun.

    In fact that liberal who tried to shoot up the FRC in DC had such limp wrists the gun fell out of his hands after he shot the guard.

    You've just confirmed every theory about guns as a testosterone-poisoned penis compensation. Not that that was any kind of revelation.

    I think of it more as a power trip from people who don't have the capacity to confront their issues by themselves and need power tools to blow their problems away. A mentality that has no respect for Life and seeks to overpower everything. The testosterone compensation is definitely in play though, whether there's a penis issue or not.

    Either way, at least you were honest here.

    Reagan supported tougher gun control laws

    http://articles.latimes.com/1994-05-05/news/mn-54185_1_assault-weapons-ban


    WASHINGTON — Three former presidents endorsed legislation Wednesday to ban the future manufacture, sale and possession of combat-style assault weapons as a closely divided House neared a showdown today on the hotly controversial issue.

    Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan sent a letter to all House members expressing their support for the measure, effectively joining President Clinton in urging approval of the ban.

    Obviously that Reagan quote was not about the school shootings. It's from 1968 and it wasn't about guns at all. The gun nutz are not above taking an unrelated quote from a dead man and twisting his words. Dishonesty seems to be this faction's forte.
