    'Crazy' Wayne LaPierre of NRA continues push for guns with lies
    The other day there was a terrific Daily News front page calling LaPierre, the NRA’s executive director, the “craziest man on Earth,” and he was clearly referencing that Sunday morning, even as he continued to sound like just one more coward made brave and tough by a gun.

    From brother Vietnam Vet BOHICA:

    We are currently {again, not anymore, civil society} in the great “Gun debate”. Internet tough guys and gals are opining that they would have taken down the gunman if they were there and been armed. Well 'f' you. You haven’t a clue what it takes to react to bullets flying everywhere, people screaming and trying get away, adrenalin triggering all kinds of responses you have never encountered before, and trying to control your bladder because that’s one of the effects of terror, ask anyone whose been in their first firefight. You are not Rambo. You are not trained for it. You have not been baptized under fire and you sure haven’t killed anyone before except in your fantasies. They think it’s easy, its not. What if you miss and kill a bystander?  Are you really ready to live with that? Too many of my veteran friends have to deal with it every day and I see the damage it does.

    Myself: USN All Shore '67-'71 GMG3 Vietnam In Country '70-'71, Veterans Advocate for All our brothers and sisters the country ignores. Not one dime has been Sacrificed for the wars nor the care of the veterans for over a decade now, not one dime by anyone, tax cuts came with them and deficits were rising rapidly Before 9/11 as the rubber stamping had already started, as the country cheered on the abandoning of the main missions we even sent the military into that region with the first drum beats at Iraq!!!!!
