    Given the events, the cop is clearly dangerous. Grabbing a gun without warning then pulling a gun on someone without so much as reasonable suspicion, not to mention illegally holding the child, this guy needs to be investigated immediately. I love how the initial charge was resisting arrest, when he wasn’t told he was under arrest and they had nothing they were arresting him for in the first place.

    I’ve got a friend in the military who claims Bin Laden was imprisoned for about a year and then died of health problems, and that his shooting was completely fictional.

    Verce, your “don’t question authority” attitude is dangerous and frightening. When a school assignment requires you to do something that goes against your morals, ethics, values or convictions, it is overstepping its bounds. What if the assignment had been to swear fealty to a religion other than your own? Learning a language does not need to involve swearing allegiance to a foreign country, period.

    According to the UNODC, gun homicides in Canada are closer to 200 a year. About 1/6 the amount of the US per capita. Still pretty low, but hardly 20-30 per year.

    But we’re not talking about people going on disability for PTSD. We’re talking about people who have been “determined” by VA to be incompetent to handle their finances. That shouldn’t be lumped together with prohibiting gun ownership because A: the process is incredibly vague and doesn’t seem to be disputable, and B: unable to handle finances doesn’t necessarily mean dangerous with a gun. The particularly scary part is that, because the determination process is not widely known and apparently indisputable, they can use this to simply stop people from being allowed to own guns. It’s a very abusable process.

    @WINEDUDE Healthcare is a right to the extent that you shouldn’t be denied the ability to get it. That does not mean that it should be provided by my tax money. Similarly, I demand that my right to own guns not be infringed, not that the government buys them for me.

    Last figure I read said that firearms are used in self-defense 1.2 million times a year by Americans. Also, for what it’s worth, in 99.9% of those cases, the criminal is scared away or injured, but not killed. Intimidation and show of power are great for defense as well.

    If not convicted, there’s no hope for the justice system.

    Who wants to bet MSNBC “accidentally” gets the facts wrong and says this guy actually was a right-wing extremist?

    So Wendy’s is sexist because the logo is a girl? Frosted Flakes are sexist because Tony the Tiger is male? Chick-fil-A is sexist because it’s clearly a rooster and not a hen? Your idea that women never wear ties is absurd. Even with it being more common for men to wear ties than women, the idea that the logo is therefore sexist is also absurd.

    Furthermore, I used to have a ponytail, and my brother-in-law still does, so your indication that it symbolizes a female is more offensive than a logo with a tie in it.

    Nothing can ever be said to have prevented what happened, but the guard did prevent what almost certainly would have happened, which is more injuries and probably deaths.

    Uninformed and ignorant is one thing, when the article he linked directly contradicted what he said, it’s just plain lying.

    I wish I could find some examples right now, but I’m sure I’ve read of instances where the courts decided that religious freedom is universal, rather than only applying to individuals and churches. Certainly common sense dictates that, but unfortunately common sense has become very hard to come by.

    That’s what I don’t get about these buyback programs. They must be worried their guns will run off and commit mass murder of their own accord. After all, guns kill people.

    The fact that he points out not having nice things to say to his friends, and calls the children disappointments, shows that his attitude is a selfish one. If he presented it in a loving way (which does not necessarily mean gentle,) and made it more about being upset to see his children not living up to their potential, I could perhaps agree with his sentiment.
