    Hey, that's interesting. Put up a gun-free sign and guns just flock to those areas.

    I've noticed the same thing with deer crossing signs on roadways.

    Just proves what I always thought - namely that animals can read!!
    Why else would you tell them where it’s safest to cross??

    As to the OP, what do you expect from one who says just “going out back & shooting a shotgun blast in the air will keep burgelers away from your property”?
    This would probably work as well as proclaiming to an imbicle that a school is a targer rich environment, fully expecting him to follow the GUN FREE admonition!!!!!!

    I’m reminded of the phrase ‘fish in a barrel’. Even my church has armed people in charge of security, & they are good at covering all the entrances. Been that way for as long as I can remember.

    Joe is a nice guy but lacks a little common sense when advertising to lunatics (who, unlike deer, can read) "you won't have any return fire here".

    Progressive Liberals often fail to understand the consequences of their actions, which is why they make extremely poor leaders, and even worse law-makers.

    The so-called "Gun Free School Zone" law has done nothing but create a "killing field" on the campus of every school in the US. The only people the GRSZ law applies to is the responsible, law abiding citizen who, when present, could protect the children and stop the slaughter.

    In my opinion every political hack who voted in favor of the GFSZ law should be charged with conspiracy to commit murder for every child killed in the GFSZ killing fields.

    It's time career politicians be held criminally and civilly liable for their abhorrent conduct.

    It would be great deterrent to stupidity if they were held accountable for their ideas which they impose on the rest of us, but their kids have armed guards.

    Think that we are really seeing what happens to a culture that tries its very best to ignore God and His ways, so end up with a lawless situation, and many evil deeds and acts arer allowed to now come forth.

    This proves once again that Joe Biden is not good for the country.

    I don't hold to Catholicism, but I did find these statements by Cardinal Arinze to be right on target.

    “Personally, I am against abortion, but, then if people want to do it, I leave them free.”

    “You are a member of the Senate or the Congress, personally I am not in favor of shooting the whole lot of you, but, it’s just pro-choice for that person.”

    Don't bother. A person who mocks in a thread about the death of children is probably not someone you want to waste a lot of time on. :(

    Very true
    oh my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you. (This is the 1st line of a Catholic prayer of contrition). I often think about this prayer in the morning when I rise. How much have I offended the one who continues to provide me grace even though I’m a lousy sinner.... that’s my way of humbly showing my gratitude.... Lord, I am so sorry.
