    I dunno, I think the Tea Party and Fox News are pretty much the main spewers of hate in this country – an indirect cause of bloodshed (fiscal and human) on their hands.

    Using your freedom of speach to critisize those that would use their freedom to disagree with you.

    What we really need though is two things;

    A way of identifying and quarentining the mentally ill who present a danger to others and..

    A means of offering an immediate response to those that would do us harm. We cannot have police at every mall, theater, school and trainstation. Even if we had the trained police, we could not afford the overtime costs.

    What we should do is take citzen volunteers, offer them training in what constitutes the legal and justifiable use of deadly physical force. Do background checks on them with regard to their criminal and mental health history. Allow them to be armed at their own expense. Perhaps set regulations regarding uniforms. And then assign them the tasks of providing security at places and locations that the local community decides are important.

    In effect, recreate the militia concept.

    America, in the past, had been threatened with marauding bands of savages bent on killing people. We responded by organizing ourselves, training ourselves, equipting ourselves, for the protection of ourselves and our neighbors. We could not prevent the attacks of the savages, but we could minimize the damage they could do.

    I for one, am willing to return to this concept. Iif you feel less safe with a gun than without one, then fine. You don’t have to join. No one will be conscripted. The milita, like the volunteer fire department, is not for everyone. But don’t tell me that the firemen should be eliminated in order to try to cut down on arson.

    curious who these “marauding bands of savages” were that threatened the American Way into vigilantism.

    Most psychologists will agree that “pornography” actually tends to reduce violent acts against real people in the vast majority of cases.


    Violent speech, whether form La Pierre, Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, or others of the ilk, when combined with access to weapons and firepower, DOES lead to violent actions, “nationalism” going to extremes, and war, abroad, and at home.


    While “pornography” is relatively benign, violent rhetoric, especially aimed at the “unstable”, is not.


    Video games do still get mixed reviews, but it is scary that folks get from them that they are not only immune to violence, but also get the impression they’re omnipotent, and immortal. It doesn’t work that way.

    Stipple…It was called the British Army – the toadies of the Monarchy sent to deprive the American colonists of any autonomy.

    @theopolus
    you offer distraction. you propose more zimmermans.
    perhaps we can judge the mental health of people based on the size of the magazine they want to buy for their assault weapons.

    and i thought we got rid of the ‘maurading bands of savages’, with smallpox laced blankets, at least to start.

    @sstttrugglepup
    so you try to draw a moral equivalence between privacy, pornography and the extermination of an entire class of elementary school children.
    try again.

    You do realize that Gocomics might have to forward comments like that to the FBI in order to prevent the next mass-shooting by a mentally unstable person, right? Not that I would miss you around here…

    It’s always informative to read what kind of things people will propose after a mass murder. Proposing more mass murder seems rather perverse; but I noticed long ago that you right-wingers can always find reasons to do more killing. It seems to appeal to you.

    Once again you trot out the same fallacies when you equate highway deaths, drunk drivers, and guns. And of course you top it off by falsifying the number of deaths due to drunk drivers.

    For the record. The purpose of an automobile is to move people and products from one place to another. Alcohol is a legal drug that impairs one’s judgement. To that end, strict laws prohibit driving after drinking. An intelligent person would not that as the population goes up deaths due to drunk drivers have dropped, presumably because of the increased severity of the penalties.

    The purpose of any gun is to kill something. Don’t pretend that you bought a gun to put holes in targets – a screwdriver will do a better job. And the NRA has consistently opposed ANY legislation that would impede ANYONE from buying any firearm.

    And your big lie – traffic deaths from drunk driving have dropped below 10,000 a year – still far too high, but efforts are being made to reduce that number.

    ^^standard distraction strategy. classroom full of elementary schoolchildren exterminated by a man with a legal semi-automatic weapon with huge magazine. firefighters picked off as they respond to a fire by a man with a semi-automatic rifle like an amusement park game

    NOthing to see here, we can live with it, move on

    the REAL problem is liberals drunk driving. Funny how effective laws are able to make a real dent in drunk driving deaths but aren’t worth considering in assault weapons attacks.

    “Friends of the Swastika”; hate Hitler but like his ideas.

    I’m not sure what law or ban would stop mass shootings (since it’s illegal to mass murder), but all this talk do is prop up gun sales. If ignorance is bliss that the kool aid drinkers must be really happy (though this cartoon is not particularly cheerful…)

    Good old Walmart sure is doing well with their assault rifle sales; after the last tragedy, rather than take assault rifles off of the shelves, thjey left them up, and then bragged that they were almost sold out due to the rush to purchase them.
    Good old USA, nothing too horrible to prevent commerce. Hell, after 9/11 Pres. Bush encouraged people to get out and shop. So rest easily, young victims, your deaths are helping prop up the Walton family’s bottom line.

    ^a capitalist will seel you the rope to hang himself, if he can make a buck off it, and now the rope is made in china.

    and for those of you whom equate those of us that don’t consider the extermination of classroom full of elementary schoolchildren every month or so a reasonable price to pay for ‘freedom’ – with hitler. may i remind you that nazi germany was capitalist.

    ^your repeated drunk driving drivel is a distraction from the issues. drunk driving has been dramatically cut because of strictly enforced legislation and it continues to trend down. but that’s not the least of it, cars are not designed to kill living beings.
    hitler took jews, gays and other ‘undesireables’ and gave their wealth TO the citizens of germany. I don’t see your point. i am not talking about taking away civil rights, i’m talking about properly balancing civil rights.
