    DETROIT -
    A Detroit woman defended herself with gunfire early Tuesday morning when a group of men broke into her home.
    The woman, who goes by the nickname Ms. Dee, said she was jolted awake around 2 a.m. when one of the men broke through her bedroom window of her home on Whitehill and pointed a gun in her face. Three or four more men followed behind.
    “I was able to get to my gun. They didn’t know I had it. By that time, it was just gunfire,” Ms. Dee said.
    She was hit in the foot and is expected to be OK. She said she believes at least one of the men was also shot.
    Ms. Dee said she got a gun license after her home was broken into three years ago.
    “We are regular people. We work every day. Me and my fiancé, we work every day. We don’t do drugs. We don’t do none of that,” Ms. Dee said.
    A cancer survivor, she said she’s glad to keep taking whatever life throws at her.
    “I told the nurse at the doctor that I think I’m a cat, because I keep just going through stuff and God keeps pulling me through it,” Ms. Dee said

    We’re waiting for a FIX, you Ailes Rush Noise RepubliCons; we’re awaiting your GOVERNANCE instead of your excuses.

    Life begins at conception and let’s ‘value’ it? How’s about life in kindergarten or Friday night at the movies?
    -
    Would you care to value THAT life – or those deaths – for us? Or just continue looking the other way, changing subjects, dog whistling? What about it?
    -
    You OWN two of the three branches of American government: how’s about you GOVERN with an eye toward the health and prosperity of THE PEOPLE, eh, instead of your advertisers?

    @ConserveGov

    Yep. There’s a typical RepubliCon response to a question of GOVERNANCE.
    -
    Everybody should have a handgun and sleep with it – loaded of course. What could POSSIBLY go wrong. The world would be a happier healthier place with more people with more firepower dozing off with their weapons set on hair-trigger.
    -
    Suppose we RESEARCH that ‘way forward’, DISCUSS it thoroughly, and VOTE on it in an open session of Congress, eh?
    -
    The Everything-Is-Fine-As-It-Stands Approach, handed along to us by the CURRENT Supreme Court in 2008 (with I believe Clarence Thomas writing for the majority) would be voted down in a landslide, a LAND slide. 70-30 minimum.
    -
    Don’t think so, Gov? How’s about you call for a vote instead of changing the subject?

    Mr. Conelly, you really should remove the mote from your own eye before commenting about someone changing the subject.

    Demographics show Republicans going down, Democrats going up.

    It’s not known how much of this is due to a largely GOP insistence on keeping loaded guns in family homes in the belief that they will get to kill someone (that they don’t know) one day.

    I guess the cards and memorials make people feel better after a senseless murder. It would be nice if we would also do something to make things better. There are 30 or 40 shootings every week in Chicago resulting in a half a dozen deaths. Many are innocent bystanders. This year 38 cars have been shot at on the expressways by other aggressive drivers. We have a “mass” shooting about every week now. How bad does it have to get before we try to at least take a moderate, middle of the road approach to trying to reduce the carnage?

    It is hard to believe that our self centered politicians have become so callus and driven by their extremist core ideologies that they cannot compromise to not only protect our children from domestic terrorism, but also, simultaneously protect the rights of those who feel the need to own guns. We do not need more unenforceable laws; we do need a change in atititude from our “leaders”. Sorry is not good enough.

    “We do not need more unenforceable laws;…”

    Those laws are not so much unenforceable as they are just not being enforced.

    I have often had the rather extreme thought, that perhaps one of the reasons that we have not had another major attack such as 9/11 is that terrorists around the world (and not just Muslims) realize “Why bother, they are already doing themselves in anyway!!”

    Our own problems at home doesn’t affect our military actions over seas.

    It’s not just that laws are unenforced.


    There are ‘dry’ counties in many states that border other counties or states that are not dry. The people in those locations just have a slightly longer drive to buy alcohol.

    The Second Amendment gives us the"right to bear arms" to maintain a “well-regulated militia”, it seems like the right-wingbats want the bearing arms part without the militia part. Gun owners need to pass extensive background, training and physical testing to qualify for the “right”.
