    Up to this point right now just today alone 216 unborn children were slaughtered in the womb. How many of them died at the hands of Plannedparenthood and organization that you support and which murders unborn children in cold blood.

    First deduct the suicide cases. Stats show that if a person is determined to kill themselves, they are going to do it, even if it means jumping off a bridge. If a man wants to take his wife with him, poison will work if he can't get a gun. (Fire, drive car into a river, and other means of killing self and others.)

    Next, deduct from the list those who are suffering from mental disorders as they are already covered by gun control laws.

    Finally deduct from the list, those remaining who would have killed whether it was picking up a tire iron from the back of their truck or just used their hands, if that was all they had.

    How many are left?

    How many would still be dead?

    Is that your defense of being pro-death after birth?

    Also you continue to tell a falsehood. I have never said I support abortion. But you praise capital punishment [death] and are in favor of cutting programs for children who are malnourished and hungry ... and are against providing the poor children adequate health-care. [Both are pro-death positions.]

    How do any of those articles equate to "pro death"?

    Supporting the right to keep and bear arms is "pro death"?

    Well, one doesn't use a gun for any other purpose other than to kill or maim; I woudl have thought that is obvious.

    And you continue to intentionally misrepresent others.

    CTB, whispering to ya.........

    For those of us, watching this on-going debate between you and Mitchell, your words sound like the liberal media's presentation of most subjects with which they disagree. Your words imply that he is in favor of cutting ALL aid to those in need. Is that indeed the truth, the whole truth?

    Brother, it's hard to watch brothers in Christ attack each other, using tactics of implication so greatly used by the forces opposed to everything our Saviour represents.

    And, before you mention it, I fall short, too. :tear: Maybe even with this public plea to you and Mitchell. :praying:

    Really??

    You ever heard of target shooting? There's lots of people out there who enjoy that and buy guns solely for that purpose. I used to target shoot with a bow and arrow when I was younger. I enjoy competing with myself to see how well I can shoot.

    And none of those would have been noticed were it not for the knee-jerk reaction to guns caused by a mentally-ill 20-year-old in CT.

    I like to kill clay pigeons. I use a semi-automatic shotgun with a black stock aka an assault rifle. I shoot metallic targets with my Ruger 10/22 - also a semi-auto assault rifle. I shoot at turkey with the single shot shotgun and I use a different rifle for shooting at deer. It isn't an autoloader but it is a Savage.

    How many of those were going to be worse - but the perp was cut down by someone else with a gun??

    Oh right - another purpose of guns is self-protection.

    If America Became Like Some Liberals Want...

    ...I suspect that when the national police take over, those liberals who so emphatically speak out will be the first to be arrested and silenced.

    A socialist government couldn't have any "free thinkers" running amok in the new utopia.

    A worst-case scenario would be if radical Islam took over America, liberals and Hollywood types would be the first folks rounded up and silenced, again, "free thinking liberals would be divisive later down the line!"

    Now you may ask, why are the conservatives not being rounded up? Well, I'll tell you why! Conservatives would be among the large numbers of those gone into a survival guerrilla mode, protecting their freedoms and waging a battle to remove the un-American regimes.

    Only thinking out loud. But it is something to think about!
