Can we conclude he's a Marine based on his icon when he talks like an insecure 16 year old wanting to impress his buddies out under the bleachers talking about girls? If icons are to be trusted, I'm Max Headroom!
For what? Talking to someone who deliberately baits you in and then tries to bash you when you don't see his way. Get real
Im sorry am I supposed to be offended here? Especially coming from a 64 year old man with the self proclaimed genius attitude that still haven't gotten past the 5th grade bully mentality.
You're the one who talks like a swinging dick in a dive bar.
Sadly we can feel insecure at any age.
I would never say "I'm smart." If I cite I have background and experience in an area where it's relevant and apply logic to discussions, that is being aggressive and/or bullying? How is that? He does express himself like a boy, an observation I'm sure other adults here have thought.
Well, gee, I'm sorry you see it that way.
Do we need to draw a picture?
There's always talk of gun control after a mass shooting and the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre in Connecticut is no different. I would be surprised, however, if two weeks from now any progress has been made on placing restrictions on gun ownership.
And even if, later, some legislation has been proposed and eventually enacted, I'd be surprised if much of the legislation survives the gauntlet of Federal Courts and ACLU. On June 28, 2010, the Supreme Court ruled that strict handgun regulations in Chicago were unconstitutional. On a side note, Chicago has been experiencing a flood of gun murders this year.
Now, the ACLU's policy is that it takes no position on gun control one way or the other. A closer look (here on a site run by gun control opponents), reveals that they tend to agree with gun control. HOWEVER, when it comes to requiring psychological evaluations, which many people want purchasers to pass before buying a gun, I suspect they will draw a line there even if they won't oppose other restrictions.
Personally, I'm not opposed to gun control. I just don't think it'll help much. It will be about as effective as our laws against exceeding the speed limit or smoking pot.
Here's something seldom discussed about gun control laws. They are almost entirely about purchasing and owning guns.
If you want to massacre people, you don't need to own the gun, you just need to HAVE it! A lot of inner city mayhem is done with stolen guns, and the Sandy Hook shooter shot up the school with a gun he didn't own. His mother did.
I wonder if there's any reason why the bulk of kids the shooter shot were little girls?
ALL of the dead teachers are female, but I suppose in any typical elementary school most of the teachers would be female, so that's less remarkable.
