  1. What the heck is going on with all these shootings and bombings. People are shooting the wrong people seems to me. Even if ya do not like somebody then just stay away from them. Think about cops and others like those theiving bankers and govt. officials/employese for target practice instead.

    1. Like the cops, I guess these cowardly people like to shoot at people that don’t shoot back. Hence, why we all need to be armed. Then you’ll see all of this come to an abrupt halt in no time.

      1. Yep NC, I also think that that is what it will take. If we were all armed to the hilt then the scumbags like this and the cops and all would think twice. I do not advocate just going out and shooting people willy nilly, but then again It would put a damper on how people and cops have been acting lately over these many years.
