For being farmers you all are odd.

I've raised livestock.  Maybe none of you ever did so that would explain your comments about the shooting in AZ.  Maybe none of youever had a pet either.


The person that did those killings was not a mainstream human.  He was an aberration.  I've had cattle, hogs, dogs, cats and horses that were "off".  It didn't matter that they were all fed the same, treated the same and came from the same source.  Every once in a while there was one that acted wild or tame. 


Why would anybody believe that one person out of over 6 billion people on the planet would be thinking a certain way because of an ideology?  He was mentally ill.  He hadn't been in any environment that fostered his actions. It's obvious that most here haven't been to a library and read the inflammatory literature available from different political spectrums through the ages. 


To say he was a liberal or that he was a conservative is to be as illogical as him.  He made no demands, he offered no solutions, he just killed a random number of people.  He was no different than Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, his was a purposeless act of an insane person.


The real guilt now lies with those who use the acts of an insane person to regulate the actions of sane people.  The real guilt lies with those who try to profit from his actions.

Re: You are the odd ball

Your only answer is to just shake your head, call him a psyco, a statistical oddity in the population that naturally occurs,  and go on with your life doing nothing? You are guaranteeing a repeat performance by doing NOTHING..

There is a price to live in a free society. Some things can not be prevented.

Re: au' contrare

What happened to education paves the way to civilization?

All these young folks seem to know all about the computers, web sites(good and bad), face book (good and bad) and I-pods, blackberries, and other digital communication devices, but, you show them a 40 cal S%W automatic and ask them to identify the working parts and they all shun you as some gun psyco. Our public schools have failed to teach the basics of firearms to the kids, but certainly have put the fear of being around them in their young minds. That is wrong and totally unacceptable.

Re: You are the odd ball

3020, do you know the basic way on how to stop an attacker who comes at you point blank with an automatic handgun without injuring yourself? I guess your first step is to recognize it is an automatic or revolver, then----do you know??????? If so, how do you know? Knowlege is powerfull.

3020 kudo's to you

You are exactly right.  If we truly want a FREE society we cannot let the actions of the insane govern the sane.

 

Thank you.

 

There is a significant difference between groups of people with a cause attacking and one psychologically impaired person.  One requires action the other requires understanding.  By understanding I do not mean allowing the person to go free.

Re: You are the odd ball

GMA interviewed a friend of Loughner that said he was into a certain illegal hallucinogenic drug and he was obcessed with the "Zietgeist" movie.  Gee whiz, what was it a week ago the Demys were dancing around the edges of making drugs legal .....and taxing them...yeah they better tax illegal drugs...to clean up all the blood!!  A FBI Psychiatrist said Loughner could`ve shot up the college or his family but didn`t because there was a spark of love in those places. Loughner chose Giffords because he would gain alot of attention and he didn`t personally know those people. All those hard FACTS to make a remedy and the asshats on here are singing their one note "Guns are the problem". Second note "and oh yeah, so are farm subsidies".
