    does anyone remember the saying "the first one to smell the stink is usually the one responsible for it" which brings me to my point.The individuals that bring up race as if it were a trump card are almost always black and far to the left of the mainstream thought of america.These people that throw racial accusations around as though they were confetti,I believe it is them that see race in everything and the rest of the country is beginninhg to catch on as well.Another thing, what is with this African American crap?I do not here anyone else of any other race or nationality cry out and say "I'm not asian I'm a Laotion,cambodian,vietnamese american

    To WONDERING: Maybe you leave and should live in China, Germany, Cuba, Russia, Iran, or Italy. It seems to have worked well for their citizens!

    "Wondering" We already have laws that prohibit some people from possessing firearms. Felons, mentaly ill, persons convicted of domestic violence ect. Criminals however do not live by the rules of our society. This is why they are called Outlaws. Persons convicted of home invasion robberies should have a mandatory 10 year prison stay no if's and's or but's. Free men should never be denied the right of self protection.

    To wondering, maybe you would be happier in Iraq, or North Korea, or the Congo, or one of many other places where people are dominated by radical gun toting thugs. There exists good & evil in this world. I like my right to bear arms. Was it Japan that elected not to invade our shores knowing that every one was packing. When I watch the news I see Granny brandishing her fire arm when the thug breaks in to her space. As for the guy in question, he just lost his right to carry, not that it will stop him. GUNS ARE NOT THE ISSUE. He, a bad people, will use a tire iron. Hopefully, his future victim will have a gun.

    Robert, you are entitled to your opinion, doesn't make it right. One thing is for sure, we will one day draw our last breath & find out one way or the other. IF your opinion is correct, the only thing I have sacrificed is keeping my nose clean & being a good citizen. HOWEVER, if you are wrong...(as I believe you are)...you risk everything. Personally, I don't want to take the chance of missing out on an eternity in Heaven, & I don't mind seeming a little kooky to unbelievers. I serve an awesome God & he is worth it. Robert, as a believer, I am concerned about what will happen to you when you die. Please think about it. At least consider the possibility that you are wrong. I pray that God will manifest himself to you in a way that will leave little doubt in your mind. If you continue to stay closed off to the Holy Spirit I am afraid of what will happen to you. Be open minded about it, keep exploring, don't miss out on Heaven.

    Not a race issue here. It’s the criminally insane who need a big ole head slapping. This world is crazy; I wish the bond would be no less than $25,000,000,000,000.09 that way none of the crazies can get out.

    Oh well Robert asked a "scientist" so it must be true there is no heaven or hell. Give me a break!

    I guess this is another one of those good hardworking people that only came here to live the American Dream! At least, that's what our leaders are telling us.

    There is no heaven and there is no hell. I have asked scientist. These are only words "fodder," to scare people and to have them bring money into a building. Money is the answer to everything, even churches. It is all a tax sham. Just look at some of the fine architecture. We've come along way from the "little brown church in the vale."
