So slave, I guess the next time our country needs defending, you can hump your bible while our Seals go risk their lives for your ungrateful hide. If this is what your religion has made you, then shame on you. You truly are a slave.

Except that the person who was the trained killer, Chris Kyle, was not insane, nor was he a mass murderer. He was a trained soldier, sent to be a protector, to kill bad guys. How dare you lump him in with the nuts who shoot up schools and shopping malls.

He came home, committed no crimes, and according to the article, was *helping* other soldiers who were afflicted with PSTD.

Bush and Obama? Okay, well then, let’s go back further. Let’s castigate Roosevelt. After all, we trained hundreds of thousands of soldiers to kill in WWII too.

Yes. The Bible says you shall reap what you sow. Chris Kyle didn’t go killing innocents like a lunatic. He did not “sow” any such thing. He was a hero. He was willing to die for his country.
This attitude that soldiers who are trained to kill in war are the equivalent of “psycho murderers” is, well foolish. Are we to stop training soldiers to kill? How about the police?

Yes, let’s stop training our protectors, and let the true murderers overrun the world.

How about the police? The police are becoming a problem. We are having more and more “officer involved shootings” in which, to me, it appears the police are killing people needlessly. It appears the standard has become that the police may kill when “they feel threatened.” I cite as one example the case where one cop had a guy in a wheelchair backed into a corner, and the “subject” had a ball point pen in his hand. The cop’s partner “felt that they were threatened” and shot and killed the guy in the wheelchair. I mean, really?

Then the police investigate themselves and, of course, come to the conclusion that the killing was justified.

Police have become much more militarized, and much more aggressive. Because the propaganda has people convinced that the police, like the ksoldiers, are heroes above criticism, they continue to have license to kill under increasingly diminished thresholds for taking lethal action, and the price of human life has become cheapened. Kind of like Oppenheimer said after the first A-test: We have become death.

This is the main reason why I oppose stricter gun laws in the US. Give a fool ten feet of rope and eventually he will hang himself.

Gun related deaths in America are changing. At one time it was primarily those with criminal histories who were the attackers. Not anymore. Now we’re seeing those who had spent their lives as law abiding citizens turn to the use of lethal violence using guns as their weapon of choice.
You can argue with a lot of points, but thats not one.

Is it just my observation, but about every day there is a gun murder done by someone the victim knows.

The NRA and all the gun enthusiasts keep on telling us to own guns to protect ourselves. It seems just the opposite is happening: to own a gun or have a family member own one increases your chances of being murdered by gun. And we aren’t even counting the suicides and accidental deaths that aren’t counted as murders.

I would bet the the $$$ spent by middle income/poor Americans on guns and ammo is by far more than they spend on healthcare or education. Just shows what powerful advertising and lobbying can do.
