One small message I'd like to say
When was the last time ( in the last 200 years) a country was even considering invading the states ?
Are we also protected against alien invasion?
Stampeding unicorns?
Or any other totally fictional scenario?

So I'm supposed to be thankful that millions of armed Americans are preventing the multitude of armies waiting at the borders, just aching to invade, if only you'd put down your guns?
And I'm supposed to be happy that the cost of that is that we have some mad man, shoot some innocent civilians, on a now weekly basis?
Is that the accepted cost of this security?

Call me crazy, but I'd rather have a little fear of invading armies, but not lose innocent people every few days, and take that as an acceptable cost.

I don't like to think of this, because I truely don't wish it on any of you.
But I wonder how you'd all feel if your kids, wives, loved ones, we're some of these people we hear about getting killed so often now.
Imagine if your kids went to the movies, and never came back, killed by a LEGALLY bought gun.
Would you still have that same gung-ho attitude?
