DrDan, I'm curious that you say "he's back". I didn't know he'd gone away.

P.S. Skateboarding is not a crime.

On Gibraltar Skateboarder Survives Car Collision

Let me attempt to educate the true believers. We have many laws against drugs, yet junkies still get hold of drugs. We keep passing more gun control laws with the promise that they too will fix our problems. Remember the Brady Bill, the cure-all for our problems? How did that work out? As I recall, after that bill was passed, then schoolyard shootings started to make news as the words "Columbine" "Littleton" and "Paducah" became synonymous with the disturbing trend of young people feeling so despondent that they not only felt the need to kill others, but did so in a way which guaranteed they would either end up dead themselves, or spend the rest of their lives behind bars. Simply put, the N.R.A. did not cause their despondency, which dovetails with this story--as this man clearly reached a point in his life where he feels all is lost.

Guns have always been available so blaming the "gun culture" on crime involving guns simply avoids the greater issue at hand--our increasingly violent society. The term "teen suicide" did not exist when I was a kid as such tragedies were so rare they were seen as an anomaly. Kids didn't listen to Rap lyrics which glorify killing, gang culture, and hatred of women.

Stop blaming guns for societies ills and look at what we were doing as a culture before these problems became so common, but be forewarned, doing so might cause you to question your own long-held views about how the world should be run.

Why would you make such a false statement? You know perfectly well it's TWICE per month.

"P.S. This is why people hate people like you Botany. You actually think that your view is the right view. That your opinion is the right one and that you get to tell others how to live and what they can and cannot do..."

...So if Botany tells people not to break into other people's houses then we should hate Botany?
