    I dont know who has seen this and read it but it is a great example of taking the High road. At a time for morning and a time that our thoughts and prayers should have been focused on the friends, family, and students the gun debate should have been put off. This was released on the 17th of April.

    Yes, and while we would have been silent in respect for the dead, thepeople who helped get them in that condition by 40 years of gun-control advocacy were already at work to make the next thirty victims.

    Don't get me wrong. Focus thoughts and prayers on friends, family, and students if you feel its appropriate. Me? I'm angry. I've been on the offensive, not in spite of what happened, but because of it.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    After reading this I am reminded of all the crap and grief the President and the administration took in the wake of 911. Granted we may not have all supported the changes and proposals, but I feel in my heart that they were generally making an effort to make our country safer (for the most part). Now who's throwing crap in the wake of a tragedy?

    Ditto. I'm not about to sit back and watch my rights get trampled again just to avoid upsetting somebody who doesn't understand what's at stake.

    As far as I'm concerned, standing up for self defense against monsters like this is taking the high road.
