Is that the truth? Where can I find that information?

If everyone who carries concealed open carried, I think that would normalize the situation and make it seem less scary. Maybe the reason why some people equate guns with criminals is that that is who they see with them. If they have evidence to the contrary, perhaps it will change minds. I know I grew up thinking guns were scary. Then I moved out into the country where you see hunters all the time. Now a gun is just a gun. A person with ill intent is dangerous and a gun is just a tool.
The only one who should be making a list and checking it twice is Santa Claus. History has shown that once you start making lists of people, they are misused and bad things happen. Very bad idea.

According to this article http://www.kc3.com/news/buybacks_fail.htm gun buybacks do nothing to curb crime. It’s simply a nice photo op to make it look like the government cares and is doing something. Crooks are not turning in the tools of their trade. When are we going to demand that our representatives actually do what they are elected to do (lead) rather than do things that look good? What happened to valuing substance?

I can’t speak to the authenticity of this story, but it rings true to me. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in this country. I don’t think it’s a huge leap from being self-destructive to being other-destructive. I think the problem is a lack of love in the home and in society. How do you connect with someone when your face is in a computer, texting or glued to the tv? I was bullied beyond belief as a child, but I never came home crying or feeling lonely because I had love and support at home. I learned how to deal with it and didn’t let other people determine my self-worth. Anyway, looking outside ourselves just delays fixing the problem. The problem is us. When we adults fix ourselves and rear our children to be strong, self-sufficient, healthy adults, we will have made far more of an impact on society than any laws could ever do.
I think people should do as their conscience says. If they want to turn in their guns after this, that’s great! Just don’t try to tell other people how to live.
If criminal want to turn in guns, I think that’s great too. We have a CRIME problem. The fewer guns criminals have, the better. They are the ones causing problems, not law abiding citizens. I don’t have any problem with this at all.

Drinking is legal over the age of 21.
If the son was burning himself, that is enough for a commitment in VA. There is a difference between suicidality and self-mutilation, but they will sort that out in a psych hospital.
Like others have said, if mom felt her son was dangerous, she should have secured her weapons. I think this is looking like it could have been preventable without resorting to gun control or changes in the mental health system.
The American Psychological Association is nuts. It’s a political organization driven by money. They want to pathologize everything so that they can keep pumping drugs into people. It’s a crazy shame.

Okay, why do they think it’s the government’s job to provide free food and blankets? Isn’t it their job to clean the streets, fix the water supply, provide sanitation and things like that? This is a problem of expectations and lack of personal initiative, not failure of the government. Everybody everywhere is not experiencing this the same way.
Not everybody "lacks personal initiative" my uneducated friend..my 2 years worth of food insurance along with the rest of my life floated away with my house smart ass.

Who allows their kids to be used in this type of political nonsense? This is why critical thinking skills are no longer taught in schools- to create lemmings.

That was absolutely disgusting. What is the inside joke, Hillary? I don’t think leaving 4 Americans to die in a 7 hour attack when we were watching it live and had help an hour away is the least bit funny.

It’s funny that so many people commenting here point out this girl’s racism, but overlook their own. That isn’t helping.
Police Chief Lester Martin added that the situation is “tragic” and encouraged the community to still offer support and prayers for the woman’s family= no charges for the racist dishonest pig.I wonder if any whites were attacked as payback for this ? you know like when zim did his good deed.Do you think the gov official that called her was odumbass?
we did not set ourselves on fire, then blame another race for it
Yeah, because it's so racist to tell truth about a bigotted woman attempting to prime the pumps of racial hatred and get herself in the public eye as a victim..... What she was doing was ateempting to victimize not only the white race but our justice system as well......She should be charged with the crime that 3 innocent white men would have gotten if they arrested for it. And since we know she actually did the crime she should be sentence for that crime as well or given the option to leave the country and never return.
Is'nt it telling that YOU do not admit your own tendency to see everything as race centered. We are just stating the fact that this woman was so filled with hate and racism that she would try to prove herself right by staging a total LIE. What do you call that? Its not racist to point out her motivation, but it is to do what you have done - to use this incident to accuse people you don't even know of being racist. You are just as guilty of fostering racism as this woman is.

Definition of racism;
a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
By these standards every single person in the world is racist by one degree or another just with the last statement of Intolerance.
Definition of Intolerance;
lack of toleration; unwillingness or refusal to tolerate or respect contrary opinions or beliefs, persons of different races or backgrounds, etc.
So because I refuse to tolerate or respect the islam religion I am racist. Just one example.
The big question here is, So what?
Who are you or others for that matter to decide that every person must tolerate or respect every other person.
As a matter of fact by your thinking and comments, you must support muslim terrorists attacking America because you well tolerate and respect their views.
Whoops, you say you don't,
well then you are a racist because you don't want to tolerate their actions or respect them.
Think about that one
Concerned1 - Take your Communist Racist bull somewhere else! obama and his Liberal Communist followers are Liars, Racists, and Radicals who will stop at nothing to impose their beliefs on America. We are sick of you and your kind. Go hang out at MSNBC where you will be loved for the Communist you are !
It's not racist to point out a fact. Just because you disagree with something or are too blind to see it, doesn't make it racist for someone to educate you about it.
Very we put sir! I could not have said it better.
I have the right to express myself (or I thought I had it), so no one can tell me to tolerate or "like" other race or other people.
Look, I strongly dislike American black people for what they do to our country. NOTE: I said American blacks. Seems to me (from my experience and interactions) that black people from other parts of the world are much more friendly and likable and do not have that attitude of blacks in America.
I also strongly dislike some white people.
I hate muslims because I have personal history with them. They are the reason my family and I had to leave our home and run away. Otherwise we would be murdered, as many of my people were.
Thanks to USA for taking us in.
Disclaimer: We are immigrated legally in 1991. We are naturalized citizens. We were never on welfare. The biggest crime that any of us committed was speeding.
Oops! I meant to say "Very well put sir!"
I am probably not the first to say so, but welcome to the land of the (used to be) free.
What's really funny is your willful ignorance on the subject of racism. She's proved that she's the one who is racist by attempting to deceive and foster racism. Grow up and use your brain. Racism is most definetly not a one way street.
well she had to do something.she was no longer getting paid to faint at the bambsters rallys .did anybody ever see a picture of the fainting lady?or ladies?hhmmmm

We all see what we want to see. I saw an apology that was full of embarrassment and gratitude. I didn’t see anything racial about it at all.

If this is the “big” news, so what. It was 12 years ago. Every marriage has a rough spot or two. They have obviously gotten over it. There are way bigger issues than that disqualify Obama.

I agree with Arby’s. This is the SECOND time she violated company policy. The policy exists to protect the employees AND the company. Fleeing the store was the right thing to do, but being in a position where she had to flee the store was not.

Thank God Google is supporting free speech. The problem isn’t the video. It’s these fanatatic’s response to it. You don’t KILL someone for disagreeing with you. The WH has it all wrong. This is just one more thing that shows that Obama does not believe in American values. The revolutionaries died for free speech. This clown just wants to give it away.
September 15, 2012 at 7:53am
This is a disgrace. These people are living in an alternate reality. I thank God that it’s almost over. Maybe we can salvage our freedom, national security, and dignity before it’s too late.

You guys have obviously never been to Egypt or you would know that for most of them, having the Muslim Brotherhood in power is like us having Obama. Nobody likes to have their freedom taken away. Nobody likes to watch their security and livelihood dwindle. Please stop looking at us vs. them… both here and overseas. We are all equal in the eyes of God. We all deserve love, freedom, and happiness. Egypt is a wonderful country with warm and loving people. The fanatical extremists are ruining it for the majority as well as the rest of the world. It’s very sad what is happening there. Where is your compassion?
