Precisely. Making a show out of it just for the sake of doing so is... a bit sad actually.
Why do we have to have all the cancer awareness days, African-American heritage month, Gay-Pride Parades, and numerous other 'observances'? Shouldn't it be OK to just be who you are?
I'm not disagreeing with you - I'm just pointing out that having a day (or a week, or a month) to focus on something and learn more about it is not a bad thing when other groups do it - why all the vitriol over this?

More laws are not the answer in my opinion. Laws are passed by governments to set standards of conduct (legal vs illegal). These laws also set punishments. However, laws cannot determine conduct. Criminals will always break the law. There are laws against bank robbery, yet banks are robbed every day. Short of making it illegal for anyone to own any type of gun, gun laws will not work. There is always someone willing to break the law.
Exactly.... that's why half of Mexico now lives in TEXAS and now we're gonna give them Obamacare.
And pay for it!

I agree with what you say here. Although I will point out that gun rights are the ONLY ones mentioned in you post that are specifically addressed and guaranteed in the US Constitution.

Marnin said above: “if you give an inviting target, you shouldn’t be surprised when someone tries to take advantage of it”. So by your logic, girls in short dresses invite rape.

“Libertarian Socialist” ? That has to be a contradiction in terms, like Military Intelligence.

And the nation says “so?” Can he do the job? If Yes, then WHO CARES?

Direct quote from the press release, “Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates.” They claim to respect our rights but want to prohibit us from exorcising our rights. You can’t do both at the same time. Typical liberal speak.

Georgia law requires that any business that wants to ban concealed carry must post the policy on all entrances. Until I see that sign, I can legally carry my concealed handgun into that business. Having said that, “gun free” businesses are targets for criminals. Why would I want to expose myself and family to an environment that invites criminals?

If the union wants to take over the factory, let them try. All Management has to do is not buy any raw material, turn off the water, gas, lights, and internet access and wait. Soon the workers will get cold, hungry, thirsty, and run out of material to “run the factory” themselves.

My impression from watching the video was that his hands were cuffed together in front. Can’t twist the arm behind the back from that position. Seems they may have cuffed his hands BEFORE he started resisting.

jrook, you said “why not do something useful and answer the question as to why the gun industry “loses track” of 100,000 guns every year.” The “gun industry” does not loose track of 100,000 guns every year. Manufactures sell/send guns to retailers and keep records on each shipment. Retailers sell to law abiding citizens. The gun industry has no responsibility to “track” guns past the wholesale shipment to the retailer. Just like Canada, registration will lead to confiscation. Once a government employee decides your registered firearm is no longer on the “approved list” it will be confiscated. Or you face criminal charges. BTW, Canada just repealed their registration law.
