  1. My Fellow Americans:

    PLEA: Can’t the UN do something about this!!!????,… Why doesn’t the UN have an international ban on all private ownership of firearms??!?!!! Can’t you take away everyone’s firearms UN???.. PLEASE!!!

    JD – US Marines – What a coincidence,… don’t you think?

    .

  2. I can’t believe I’m reading this garbage. The cartoon never ends. What next? 200 dead?

  3. Wow… a copycat Aurora theater shooting. Only this time the gunman died rather than being disappeared in a psyche ward. Amazing. I’m sure the gunman came in from the outside (you know, those doors that can only be opened from the INSIDE. 🙄 ). And I’m sure there are no body bags or ambulances and no blood or even no security footage of the whole incident. Just the MSM’s “honest” reporting.

    Yea…tell me another one.

    Hey UN,
