    That's funny. Is there anything you don't view as a socialism boogeyman?

    I walk by a street preacher every single day on my way to work. He doesn't have a bullhorn though, and if you ask him to leave you alone, he will.
    The guy in this article could take some pointers from him.

    Good. It shouldn't be easy for just anybody to get a gun.

    No where near what we see across the US with these mass shootings like almost every day.

    You didn't know? It's been a thing for years. Even decades.

    And this is just as an FYI for everyone. Especially those who like to trust the New York Times.

    One has to realize the context and that the Bible is written as parable, allegory, simile, and metaphor as well.
    Furthermore, if one reads the Bible they realize the context of the OT passages.
    And lastly, most every faith practice on earth can be charged as having hateful teachings of some sort or other.
    However, religious freedom insures people are entitled to their opinion concerning a faith. While their opinion is not entitled to oppress a faith. And finally, we don't stone people to death for their sins. We preach to them about that and tell them there's Salvation that can wash them clean of them.

    So was Jesus. And we know what happened to him due to the intolerance of those who thought he should shut up. From Roman to Jews.

    In America the right to bear arms is an unalienable right. Protected not granted by the Constitution's second amendment.

    I'm sorry but I don't take information from edited YouTube videos.
    Do you have anything in print from a reputable source that I can look at? I've seen people make this claim before, yet I've never seen any real evidence for it.

    Yes, I'm aware. But there are limitations. I mean, you can't go out and buy a tank or a flame thrower, right? Why don't you have a right to bear those arms?

    Of course, this doesn't really address my point.

    Maybe it's the skeptic thinking that causes the problem.
    When you don't know, I can't help you. You're already a skeptic. How would you know.

    What about them? The point is, America isn't the only country where nuts with guns go off. What tends to stop a lunatic committed to mass murder is a trained gun owner or someone with a gun, like police.

    Did you forget what thread you're in? Yours is a ridiculous question.

    What problem? All you need to do is explain what you meant. Then there's no problem.

    No, the point is that America is the only country that has mass shootings occurring on an almost daily basis. There was just another one yesterday.
    There is a big difference between that, and the occasional shootings that sometimes occur in other countries.

    I've heard that one before. Actually, it appears that in a lot of these mass shootings, it is a completely unarmed individual throwing himself on top of the shooter in order to stop him, as in the most recent shootings in Colorado and at the University of North Carolina. Both were students, and both were killed. There was an officer at the Parkland shooting who was recently charged for not doing his job and going in, when there was an active shooter in the school.

    It should be easy to answer then.

    Jesus didn't have a megaphone and he wasn't trolling gay people in their own community.
