    ordered society, why should the citizenry need to arms themselves against one another? It's just nuts!

      Based on gun-advocacy-----we now live in a counry where people must be armed against each other----where children must use bullet proofed backpacks and clothing -----and where we may be shot and killed in a public place--- just for the sake of attendance.

      All this over a narrow-minded and completely agenda based interpretation of  two or three words in an amendment.

      And most importantly---- because our legislators are acepting barrels full of cash from the gun--lobby.

      The Onion says----scholars have discovered---the Mayan word for "Apocalypse" in fact---translates more accurately as: "Time of pale obese gun monsters."
