    Your last sentence is interesting because it does mean that no muslim should be punished for the acts of muslim terrorists. (I disagree with that : religion being a choice, if they decide to embrace a faith that provokes so much hatred and death and chaos worldwide, they should be responsible for cleaning up its reputation or accept the consequences). So if you are against gun control, you cannot be for muslims control just because one is protected by the constitution. It is the same principle.
    Also, voting was, in the past and in many “democracies” reserved to educated or well established citizen, so there are precedents. Finally, guns being instruments, I don’t see indeed what would be wrong to require some control like for an automobile as wmconelly rightfully suggested. I’m happy for everyone to have a car, I feel safer knowing there are trafic lights and driving licenses and insurances and that you cannot race at will anywhere. It would be perfecly fine to do it with guns, and all sane and law abiding people who want one could have one. (In the case of the orlando shooting, he would have had his gun also unless his wife had reported him for beating her, in which case if he had been sentenced for that, his right to have a weapon would have been waived. And still, he – or any civilian – should never have been allowed to buy an assault rifle.)

    Islamophobia is a term originally coined by the Iranian religious police then used by most fundamentalist muslim organisations with a political agenda to equate criticism of islam, which in free thinking societies is perfectly legal and normal, like any doubt, criticism and distrust of a superstition, with racism, which, on the other hand is not acceptable.
    Furthermore, the vast majority of terrorist attacks worldwide and atrocities being committed in the name of islam (Yes, by fanatics who do not represent all muslims, and yes, other religions or political organisations do commit atrocities also), being afraid of islam is not illogical, because there are grounds to be afraid and precedents to prove it. Therefore it is not an irrational fear, and thus not a phobia. Islamophobia doesn’t exist, and it is a disgrace to mention it on the same level as homophobia which IS an irrational fear bceause homosexuals might offend the sensibilities or religious principles of some people, but you don’t see them beheading hostages or gunning down innocent people or cartoonists.

    There is indeed a common point between terrorism, hate and homophobia. It is abrahamic religion (christianity, judaism, islam) as seen by fundamentalists.

    You made me laugh. I do not intend to debate the constitution, the 2nd amendment or anything. I am just replying to your statement about the Fore Fathers not being really educated and there being no abundance of attorneys.
    These men where among the most educated of the time, borrowing concepts from history (magna carta) litterature and philosophy (John Locke, Montesquieu) to draft the constitution.
    Furthermore, I give you the “Committee of Detail” that actually drafted the contitution: John Rutledge (lawyer and judge)Edmund Randolph (Attorney)Nathaniel Gorham (Merchant)Oliver Ellsworth(Lawyer) James Wilson (Legal Theorist and know for being highly educated and intelligent). So tha’s 4 lawyers out of the 5 men who wrote the constitution.
    As for the other Founding Fathers, look them up. Beside being brilliant men and well educated (Benjamin Franklin) you have lawyers there also : John Adams (lawyer) Alexander Hamilton (lawyer during several periods of his life) John Jay (lawyer) Thomas Jefferson even briefly practiced law at the beginning of his adult life.
    Basically, only Benjamin Franklin and James Madison have never been practicing lawyers. (Madison studied law among many other subjects, for his personal education – which was immense – and knowledge but didn’t work as a lawyer.) No wonder the USA are the paradise of lawyers.
    And since I’m talking about Madison, often called the father of the constitution and the father of the bill of rights – and thus the second amendment, he graduated in Princeton and had studied latin, greek, science, mathematics, geography, philosophy, rhetoric, political philosophy, law and hebrew – that the spoke fluently. How is that for “not really educated back then?”

    Considering what they breath on Jupiter, maybe that’s why they are moving… Earth is becoming poisonous enough for them

    Are you assuming wrongly and quite stupidly in fact that if I criticize hillary it is because I support republicans? My poor man, I criticize her because I don’t see any difference between her and other spiteful warmongering republicans.

    Sorry to answer so late, but you would have lost serious money then, because I’m french so I was among the people who knew the war was based on lies and were against it. And yes we were labelled traitors and worse by american clowns

    A bit of confusion between a Tyrannosaurus and Godzilla in this toon, I’d say. (But nice pun)

    Unreliable infrastructures, highly dangerous bacteria in the water where most of water sports will take place, social unrest seem much more serious dangers than the zika. Zika is just the cherry on the cake.

    The fact that Rat watched Fox News could be considered as a psychological disorder. (Just trying to help)

    Only for a very limited time. The sponge will fill to capacity and then the sound of a drop falling onto a water gorged sponge is quite loud.
