    My 2 cents...

    One of these days the liberals that run this country and teach our children will WAKE UP to the realities of the world we live in today !! WE are surround by enemies, both foreign and domestic that seek to destroy everything we have built and stand for !!

    And there is no law, no legislation, no words...NO STOPPING the people who wish to bring down our way of life. All firearm manufacture could stop tomorrow...all ammo manufacture could stop tomorrow...and there would still be a will and a way for our enemies to try to destroy US. This is the way of the world we live in today...and just about every nation on the planet, save one...the United States...has learned that harsh lesson and begun to deal with it. Every airport in the world save the ones in the United States ( pre 911 ) have had armed guards stationed...just about every school in Europe, South America, Mexico and countless other places protect their children with private and public armed security...Israel has been doing this since they came into existence...and WE, as a nation, should also learn this lesson !!

    This is the world we live in now...everyday I wake up and strap on because I know this is what needs to be done to protect ME and MINE...

    IT'S ABOUT TIME THE REST OF THIS COUNTRY GOT ON BOARD WITH THE PROGRAM !!!!!

    WAKE UP AMERICA...OUR ENEMIES WANT TO DESTROY US...FROM WITHIN...AND THEY ARE SUCCEEDING BECAUSE WE FAIL TO ACT AS A UNIFIED COUNTRY.

    That is all...carry on !!

    My $0.02 worth also.
    Amen, amen, and amen!! I'm ready to go back to the old west mentality and everyone carry. If some nutcase opens up, there will be enough firepower close by to stop him/her in their tracks.
    Keep this up and we will have a nickels worth!! lol

    Mass murder is a symptom, not the problem. Address the root of the issue, find absolution. Ignore it and incur the consequences.

    This is very true...symptoms point to the larger problem...

    which is society's willingness to either throw up a knee jerk reaction to the problem...like banning more firearms,

    or burying their head in the sand hoping it will go away...but NEVER addressing the problem HEAD ON !!!

    You're dreaming if you think the liberals are ever gonna wake up... They LIVE in a dream world.

    There ain't no such thing as a free lunch! And the libs will spend us into ruin trying to buy it.

    I agree with Shooter13. This whole situation drives me bonkers. The more I try to figure it out, the bigger it gets and the less I understand. During 30 years of Industrial Maintenance, I've had years of training in determining the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How behind a variety of Industrial problems. I just can't wrap my mind totally around the state of this nation???????????????
    The Communist, Marxist, Socialist, Progressivist, Atheist and all the other "ist" in the world have linked arms over the past 100 years to destroy the greatest nation in the history of man. And it appears to me that they are very close to reaching their goal. I can see the liberties that we've lost in my lifetime. However, my son hasn't lost as much and my grand-kids have lost very little. With each generation, we slide farther down that slippery slope.
    From the corrupt Politicians, the corrupt Unions, the violence of the Motion Picture Industry, the violence of the Media Game Producers, the Liberal School Systems, all the "ist" or "ism" in the world - add in a few Radical Islamic Terrorist and the fact that China is deeply embedded in the mix - where is the solution???? It's beyond me????? It's bigger than saving our Nation - we need to restore our Liberties and abolish decades of liberty sucking laws.
    Add in the deterioration of the Family Unit caused by either self serving parents, an economy that forces both parents to work just to pay the bills and divorced or unwed parents, all of which is glorified by the media. It all adds up to a formula for disaster.
    Meanwhile, I put my faith and trust in the only thing that has stood by me my entire life - The Lord Almighty, Without my Faith, I would be lost. And yet we have cast Him out of our schools, our government buildings, our political affairs and many of our homes. Yet again, when horrific things happen, many blame God by asking why He would allow the Free Will of Man to take it's course. Plain and simple -We reap what we sow.
    Few are old enough to remember but there is no humanly possible way that we should have stood victorious at the end of WW-II except by God's Grace. How about the Civil War? What are the odds that we would survive that war and remain One Nation under God???
    As I've said before, "the older I get and the more I know - the less I understand". Forgive me but for some reason, I find it difficult to put much faith in mankind as far as solving this problem by their strength or wisdom.
    Just my 2 cents. I have no desire to offend anyone as this is just my perspective.

    I agree with Shooter. For what it's worth, firearms are tools. We can use them to feed and defend our families. They can also be used for harming others. Take the guns away, and other tools will be used.

    On the other hand, had that mental illness been treated with 160g of lead as he made his way across the parking of that school, we would've been celebrating a hero.

    Like I said - "the more I know, the less I understand". The more that I look for truth, the more elusive it becomes.
    Here is an article that I came across this morning. It suggest that the Conn. Shooting was instituted as a tool to push forward more gun regulations. Similar to Fast and Furious.

    Is any of this true?? Are there people with the heart and soul of Hitler or Stalin within our borders that would stop at nothing to promote their agenda? Are there people in our country that would sacrifice women and children for their cause? These things are happening throughout the Middle East and China, but we think that we are exempt.
    The hearts of man are deceitfully wicked, who can know it?
    We are truly at war, with enemies both foreign and domestic.
    This is my last post on this subject.

    It seems like Americans dont need a book on how to destroy ourselves. Just leave us alone and we will do it for them!!!!

    Huh?

    You should read it. It has nothing to do with Americans destroying ourselves. It has to do with the long standing promise that muslims will do it for us, and the Biblical references to it laid out in a way even I can understand. And there is nothing we can do about it.

    That's a pretty fatalist outlook...

    Didn't the Lord grant we humans the power of "Choice"...?

    Greyhawk50, that was an excellent post. You pretty well nailed it. The only thing I could add is the Divine intervention during the American war for independence. So many miraculous things happened to sustain the revolution that even an atheist would have trouble denying it.

    The Lord sent Adam Lanza to do His divine work in Newtown, the same way He sent the she-bears at Bethel. The Almighty told me so Himself. He didn't say exactly what the reason was, but I didn't get the impression it had anything to do with Islam. :confused: I was going to press for more details, but He seemed a bit annoyed by the topic in the first place (probably a lot of other people have been bugging Him about it), and He quickly changed the subject to the Jets' quarterback situation. (Which, btw, if it's not obvious already, The Heavenly Father is not quite as fond of Tebow as Tebow is of Him.)

    The Lord doesn't send anybody anywhere...

    He encourages us humans to follow the path as outlined in his teachings, but whether we do or not, is entirely up to us.
