        People can take exception to the way they may air those views, but that doesn't upend their right to see things as they wish.

        It is this sort of hysteria that has to be excised from the discussion if we are to succeed in reducing deaths and injuries.

        it's pretty serious.

        The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

          here and around newtown are pretty responsible and sober about it.

          And support background checks.

          and that's not the issue. What they don't have a right to is a Heckler's Veto.

            it would be erroneous and counter-productive to paint all gun owners as 'hecklers', even if some here have done such.

            Just as true as that is, I think we shoudl really clamp down on heckling on this particular topic, at least much of the time.

            And I do enjoy a good heckle, but really, I'm very serious about this.

            The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
