    The trigger happy loons shrieking "freedom" and "Our rights!"" can suck it. Their right to bear arms should not trump MY fucking right to not live in fear wondering if I'll get shot that day when I leave the damn house.

    Gun regulation would give all of us much greater peace of mind. I'm so sick of the paranoid crazies who act like Obama's going to take away all of their precious guns.

    I'm not for a complete gun ban, but there is no reason for the average citizen to have an assault rifle or an Uzi. None.

    Gun control could have saved the lives of the people in Aurora, the people shot in the mall in Oregon this week, and the children who were slaughtered earlier today.

    I had a friend on Facebook who de-friended me recently. She's a dyed in the wool conservative and a vocal supporter of the second amendment and strongly opposes gun control. Thank God she's not on my friendslist anymore, because if I saw her posting pro-gun bullshit on my wall today, then I don't think I could contain myself from laying into her with the righteous fury and anger of a thousand suns.
