      Apples and toasters. First and foremost, drugs are not a Constitutional right. No, no lessening of anti-drug laws. No increase of anti-gun laws. Much harsher penalties for violating either. Much much harsher.

      I knew we'd get it out ... even if it was under duress, while kicking and screaming.

      No, I just have learned the whining doesn't stop until the whiner gets what it wants.

      I'll construe your use of "just" as meaning "only very recently" ...

      NRA decided it would be appropriate to post this today. This is why I find the NRA abhorrent.

      Yeah, standing up for the Constitutional rights of honest citizens who have never harmed anyone. What abhorrent devils.

      All this chaos over a 40 in +/- gun.

      Imagine the carnage of a 20 foot ladder.

      Just calling attention to a silly thread elsewhere on this site mocking the gun debate.

      Actually, kind of disgusting......

      Yes, the gun debate is disgusting. There should not be one. There should only be common sense laws directed toward the human criminals.

      All you have to do to see how ridiculous most (not all, of course, but most) of the arguments against the Second Amendment are is to apply the same arguments to the other Amendments.

      What's disgusting is glorifying guns on the one month anniversary of a mass killing of children!

      Has the NRA shown any compassion? Have they come out & said we are unwavering in our support for the 2nd Amendment! ... but we need to find a way to stop mass killings..? There is a warm seat in hell waiting for Wayne LaPierre.

      I doubt there ever has been a ladder used to purposely injure a large group of people.

      My post was to draw attention to the other thread which is mocking the gun debate.

      I didn't see anyone glorifying guns on the anniversary of the shooting. I did, however, see Dems using children as political props for gun control on the anniversary. That was a little bit disgusting.

      I'd be thrilled to take a closer look at any gun control legislation proposal that doesn't specifically target the law abiding citizen. So far, I haven't seen any. "Common sense gun control" seems to be code for "gun bans, gun confiscation, and/or reduced availability" for law abiding citizens.

      Show me a legislative proposal that will target criminals who would carry out a mass shooting without also punishing the non-criminal and I'll be on board with it.

      No glorification of guns? Please refer to Twitter photo from NRA yesterday in previous post. What is that?

      I unlike most do not see this as a partisan debate. It, along with abortion, is a people debate. Modern politicians are followers not leaders. They act when it's politically advantageous for them. We have to all try to find solutions. Politics gets us nowhere ...
