    After something like the recent "terrorist" attack, Republicans will go after Democrats feeling their gun rights are threatened. This is the partisan slant Right Wingers give to everything. First, a few "truths":

    1. This guy was building a bomb. No one is "searched" when they go into a movie theater. Anyone can carry a back pack. Anyone who is determined to kill a lot of people can do it.

    2. We live in an information age. How to make a bomb information is available on the Internet for anyone who wants to know. A BIG bomb. Right Winger Timothy McVeigh proved that.

    3. The Constitution gives us the right to own guns. It's served this country for a couple of hundred years. I see no problem and don't want to change that now.

    4. It's the culture that leads to something like this. This new idea of "every man for himself" and "no one helped me" and "I did it all on my own". That's a two edge sword. If people start feeling they did everything on their own, they tend not to help others. In fact, they demonize others. Look at the economy. From 2001 to 2008, millions of jobs were moved to China, that can't be denied. Just searching " From 2001 to 2008, millions of jobs were moved to China" on the Internet, we can look at all the facts, data and statistics.

    From 2001 to 2008, millions of jobs were moved to China

    Now you have those on the right calling those who have lost their jobs terrible names:

    Republicans block unemployment benefits extension for lazy drug addicted breeding hobos- VIDEO - National Cultural Issues | Examiner.com

    When you demonize segments of society, you devalue ALL human beings. Everyone belongs to "one of those groups" so going after them is OK.

    The fact that guys like this terrorist and the one who shot the congresswoman walking around without anyone doing anything is a sign of our times. Sure, there may be one or two who are good actors and everyone is fooled, but only a few. After every one one of these incidents, people come back with, "I knew there was something about blah blah blah....". How many parents say, "I had no clue" when their son or daughter "come out" to them? Almost none. When you live with someone, you can tell when there is something funny going on. And this is a product of our culture, not the fault of the parents.

    It takes a village to raise a child. No one does it on their own in a vacuum.

    It's more than ironic that the right fears their guns will be taken away. They should feel that way. There will be people on both sides who will see England and Germany and other countries as a model for gun rights. Screw them, our rights are protected by the constitution and that is something I will personally fight for. But at the SAME time, which political party wants to take away "women's rights" and "gay rights" and partake in "voter suppression". In fact, there is no place in the Constitution where it says you need a photo ID to vote.

    I suspect I'm on the side of the majority of Americans. I would be shocked to learn otherwise.

    Excellent points, as usual.

    That means the name calling rw's will soon arrive to ignore content while flaming you.

    The way I see that is, if I'm not annoying the radical, religious, teebagger, right, I'm doing it wrong. ;)

    Homeland Security should be guarding our movie theatres against terrorist attacks like these.

    They are easily annoyed by facts, data, and common sense.

    Banning assault weapons = no more semi-auto rifles.

    Could be a "slippery slope".

    It is a slope that must not be touched, thus we avoid the "slip". In fact, few ARE suggesting firearm bans, Obama made that clear; the horror of the Colorado killings cannot be erased by enacting legislation.

    “This immediately leads to the issue of gun control,” Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, said Sunday when asked about the shootings on CNN. “To think that somehow increased gun control is the answer, that would have to be proved.”

    Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado offered a similar response on CNN about whether he would support heavier restrictions on gun purchases.

    “This is a case of evil, of someone who was an aberration of nature,” Mr. Hickenlooper said. “If it wasn’t one weapon, it would have been another.”

    Aberration of Nature? Or a product of a society that believes American helping American is "socialism", hates many different groups of people and believes you don't get help or support from anyone. Greed above nation. Lying is OK and we must idolize the rich?

    Such a nation is bound to produce "aberrations of nature".
