    Given who his sister is and how she abuses him and Charlie Brown, he needs it.

    from the LA Times:
    A fan in the infield during NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night shot himself in the head and died, the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office said Sunday.

    The race was sponsored by the National Rifle Assn.

    According to police spokeswoman Cpl. Tracey Knight, alcohol may have been a factor in the suicide of 42-year-old Kirk Franklin of Saginaw, Mich. The Associated Press is reporting Franklin apparently had gotten into an altercation with other campers.

    While there were several witnesses, Knight said no one else was in danger.

    The incident took place “in or around a pickup truck” in the infield near the middle of the backstretch, according to track spokesman Mike Zizzo, toward the end of the NRA 500.

    @Fourcrows

    If a gun had not been readily available, might this individual still be alive and suffered only a hangover? A weapon being close by often determines the outcome of an argument, etc. especially where alcohol is involved.

    Mr. Stalker, your apology seems less appropriately directed at Peanuts, and more appropriately directed at our children. It is a sad situation. Religious zealots founded our nation, and yet do not properly address this idealistic issue of “rights” in order to bring resolve to a moral issue of safety.

    Schulz was a staunch conservative in many ways, and a committed (if sometimes unconventional) Christian, but he was no fan of our “anything goes” gun laws.


    I remember one week-long series of Peanuts where Charlie Brown takes Snoopy down to City Hall to get his dog license renewed. The first day, the clerk gives Snoopy a fishing license. Then a driver’s license. Then a marriage license. On the last day, Charlie Brown says “I’m sorry, but you’ve given us a fishing license and a driver’s license and a marriage license, and all we need is a dog license.” Snoopy tugs at Charlie Brown’s shirt to ask him something, Charlie Brown says “Just a minute, I’ll ask her”, and then in the next panel says “It’s OK, she says you don’t need a license for that.” The last panel shows Snoopy walking away carrying an M-16. The effect was actually understated, but chilling.

    “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”


    The guns have not even been taken away and the criminals are using illegal bombs… Think “infringing” on the rights of law-abiding citizens will make a difference?

    When I see a gun, I do not feel free. I feel that my life may be in danger. I do not trust everyone who has a weapon, and I think it’s absurd to expect us to.

    There have been instances in Virginia where people have walked into restaurants and loudly proclaim that they have guns. The purpose is to show how happy everyone else is when they announce it. If it happens when I’m in the restaurant, I’m jumping up, asking for my check, and I’m out of there.

    I am fully convinced that the more weapons and the more bullets in my area, the more likely I am to get shot. Seems logical to me.

    Please don’t ask me what I’d do; I have already provided a list. And it doesn’t matter, because nothing will be done.

    And when there is another mass shooting……nothing will be done. Repeat ad infinitum.

    BTW, Mr. Stahler… I do not like you using the much-beloved Peanuts characters to make this particular political point, but as a matter of fact, this country would not have even gotten off the ground without the original American patriots being able to use their arms as a “security blanket” against the British. The Founders recognized that our rights are given to us by “Nature and Nature’s God,” (not by government or a piece of paper) and as such, no government should ever attempt to take away those rights. As onguard rightly stated, if the government can infringe on the 2nd Amendment rights, then they can infringe on our 1st Amendment rights. The Founders trusted that the goodness and morality of the people would guard against most abuses of any right listed in the Bill of Rights.


    I am not a big fan of guns and have never owned one. But I have many good, law-abiding, caring and compassionate friends who do own guns and use them for several reasons, not just for “security.” The right to own a gun for protection and defense is enshrined in the Bill of Rights for good reason. What’s happened is that we have thrown God and morality out the window. What has changed is that we, as a society, no longer value life as the Founding generations did. We no longer kill out of necessity (such as self-defense or in war) but for sport or to make ourselves feel good. We have banned the Bible from public life, refused instruction from anyone on morality, and have instead chosen to fill our minds, our hearts, and our spirits with a morality acquired from popular opinion and violent and degrading media.


    You may accuse supporters of gun rights as relying on guns as a security blanket, if you wish. Opponents have their security blanket as well: It’s unnecessary “feel-good” laws that infringe on the rights of others.
