I am pretty sure that Mexico is already invading us :-o

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

You joke but last time we got pissy with the US we took Washington D.C. and burned it to the ground. Piss us off and we might do it again. What would we lose? The Capitals? pffft - Leonsis can have the next franchise in Winnipeg. Plus DC stole Les Expos and turned them into a laughingstock. So you should be worried. You've been warned. I've probably said too much already.

Consider yourself added to the watch list... :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

How did Cho purchase handguns if he spent time in a Mental Health Facility? I'm sorry, but this is what I mean by gun control. If you want to keep them in the hands of law-abiding citizens, that's fine with me so long as people with mental health problems don't get them. People say we should give IQ tests, and background checks and criminal checks. If you go to a nuthouse, you don't get a gun.

That should be a rule, no exceptions, I'm sorry... even if you go to a mental hospital because you're depressed, your wife died, you lost your job... no gun. I don't care if you can still get guns from "other places," what's the point of a mental health background check if this guy, who had mental health problems, got a gun? We shouldn't be just handing guns out.

I also think you shouldn't be allowed to be sold a firearm if you have been convicted of anything so insignificant as a low misdemeanor. Yes, DUI... no gun. If you don't have the common sense to not drive drunk, and then get caught for it, then you sure as hell don't have the sense to own a gun. Punch your girlfriend? No gun. Child porn on your computer? No gun. You peed in public? Sorry, no gun.

You obey the law and you're not mentally unstable, then fine... get a gun. I know there are plenty of potential criminals out there who are model citizens, but if we can't keep a mentally disturbed individual who spent time in the looney bin from getting a gun, then something's wrong.
If you're a battery, you're either working or you're dead....
