    My psychologist daughter is here in fale right now and we are talking about the incident at LAX yesterday. She lives somewhat near LAX.

    I just asked her why gun nut men commit these tragedies and not gun nut women, who also may have mental issues. She said that question has never been answered and needs further research. Her best guess is that it is partly biological and partly socialization. American males are socialized from an early age that guns are a "manly" pursuit. She said that American men are generally more aggressive, more violent, and more insecure. She said, consequently, that American men are less capable of handling a firearm than men or women in other cultures and backgrounds. She and her psychiatrist partner don't have a gun in their fale, they have a 60 pound Red Lab (also visiting today) who is very sweet until there is a stranger in his yard and his house. Then he becomes very noisy and very disagreeable!

    He was armed and ready to kill at least 100 yet was taken down asap by those with guns. How many could have been saved had others been armed and ready to save? This tragedy was limited in scope and ability by armed personel, not magnified by non-armed/trained civilians as some like to point out.

    South Carolina like Texas has a very high rate of personal gun ownership. But according to the gun nuts the ownership rate should be even higher to prevent the tragedies reported above. What is puzzling is that states that have low rates of personal gun ownership do not experience this type of violence on this scale. Hmmmmmmm!


    STRICT ANTI-GUN CONTROL NOW!
    Oh, you mean like NY and DC? Places with strict gun laws still have high firearm death rates - no solution.

    And you seem to have your blinders on regarding LA. If armed personnel were not present to take down the perp, many more people would have been killed.

    Looks like his main complaint was against the TSA.

    I got in on the end of the story but wanted to share that George Zimmerman has been arrested again on a charge involving a gun, from what I heard he beat up his girlfriend and threatened her with his gun. It was remarked here, after he was let off for murdering Trayvon Martin that we would be hearing about Zimmerman and we have. I also want to share that that jury was a disgrace to the white race, walking caricatures of racist whites, each jurist a disgrace to humanity and the court a disgrace to the very idea of justice. So if Zimmerman goes to jail they better keep him in...segregation...or the inmates will probably exact the justice against his sorry okole that our "justice" system wouldn't.

    Unless his racist parents have bailed him out by now, he was put in a private cell in county jail waiting for a hearing. Georgie is the perfect poster boy for gun nuts around the US. He is an imminent threat to society.

    Absolutely! The pro gun people are always talking about responsible gun ownership. Well, in an ideal world everybody who owned a gun would be 100 % careful and responsible with it so there wouldn't be any problems. But alas people are not perfect. Zimmerman, case in point. Clearly unstable. By the pro gun peoples' own claims, he is just the type of person you do not want entrusted with the power to blow people away. Police departments screen candidates very carefully then train them very carefully but humans being human and imperfect every once in a while a cop blows somebody away, too, out of rage, inappropriate fear, whatever. But guys like Zimmerman...its just pathetic that somebody so unstable can carry a gun. I guess his gun license be taken away if this charge sticks. But Florida being what it is they'll probably give him a medal and put his girlfriend in prison.

    Well, Lopeti, here is the little scam the gun nuts who are not permitted to have guns pull. They get their wife, girlfriend, mother, father, friend to purchase the guns in their name and then give the unstable gun nut free access to those guns. The freak in the Sandy Hook massacre is a typical case in point. The system is out of control and I'm not going to sit idly by anymore!

    Georgie has been released on $9000 bail. He denies all charges made by his girlfriend. With his track record, of course I believe him.

    I wonder if he will plead out. I hope not. I want all the gross details from his abuse being made public to humiliate the idiot racist jurors who let that murderer get away with it, and the evil Florida justice system that abetted. There are some iron clad rules in life one of which is YOU DON'T HIT WOMEN. EVER. I guess if a woman was trying to kill you that would be an exception...

    MATAPULE!

    You are an obsessive nut job.

    Statistics show that legal use of guns rarely kill people, but illegal use (against the law) KILL EVEN far fewer.

    More people die from DUI or even stupid traffic deaths. So, you gonna ban cars?
    More people are saved from criminals annually than are killed by illicit firearm use.

    This is just your personal "whipping boy" (look it up) and not a logical stance.
    You are obsessive-compulsive, and in need of psychiatric care.

    Anyone care to disagree?

    There are over 5,000,000 hunters in America. There is NO nation that would have an army to stand up to us.

    The communists wish to destroy our advantage, so they can take over, perhaps.

    Matapule does seem to be over the top in his rage. I hope he doesn’t do something rash.

    As for Zimmerman; I wonder if his actions lately are anything like before his court trial. Is it possible he is suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome? It must have be very hard on him to have the president, the Attorney General of the United States, the media and the general public acting like a lynch mob wanting to “get justice”.

    Another paranoid gun nut de-cloaking! Yes, when it comes to 20 children being murdered by a gun nut, and that is just the tip of the iceberg, I am over the moon in rage as gun violence has become an integrated and accepted part of our culture. This is going to take a concerted effort, but we must bring this gun violence insanity to an end.

    And to think all he did was murder an innocent kid, it's not like he revealed embarrassing and pertinent civil rights facts being kept from a deserving public and having to flee the country for your life. And I hope mata get's Neil Young, Mermen, and Nebula for his concert, I'll go!

    You mean POTUS, the Attorney General, the media, and the general public murdered an unarmed kid, has continuing anger management problems with their girlfriends, were stopped in the last few months several times for traffic violations, and pointed a shotgun at the head of his latest paramour? WOW! I had no idea I was so misinformed. Georgie Porgie is obviously innocent of all charges in his past. Thank you for enlightening me!

    Matapule, you and Ron are acting like those you describe in your signature. I did not say Zimmerman was innocent or guilty. I have too few facts to make that judgment. I don’t think you have all the facts either. I don’t think the jury had enough facts to prove his guilt so they acquitted him as required by law.

    Matapule your rage will consume you. Please take a few deep breaths and relax a bit.

    As long as there are innocent people being killed, especially children, by the paranoia of gun nuts and gun violence, I will rage until hell freezes over. We live in one of the most violent societies on earth. And we are supposed to be civilized! That is unacceptable.
