As for the gun violence argument that another armed citizen in a theater could have stopped the incident is ludicrous. My point is that this guy wasn't just screaming fire in a theater this guy was firing in a theater. Another human being firing another weapon against a man with body armor. Just seems to multiply the problem. How does a police officer in Denver or any other city sort out the mayhem if one or two other vigilantes opened fire. The results could have been even worse. With strained budgets at all levels of government due to this economic recession. Why would we want to complicate the situation even more. If the vigilantes killed two or three additional service how would we ever sort that out in court? Isn't that why we have private security guards?. Why build or encourage behavior that degrades the quality of life for peaceloving citizens.?

Earlier in the show you're talking about inequality of wealth. We don't have to go back very far to see what caused the disparity. It is a continuation of the same policies that allowed Enron WorldCom Tyco. The looting of accrued wealth in retirement plans and on Wall Street of retiring citizens is terrible. Like ripples on a pond from Enron out the trillions of dollars lost contributes to the overall picture.

Another great show have a nice day.

A lot of people want uncontrolled gun ownership.

And a reason for that is to keep our government under control, stating first they take your guns.

This point of view has been adopted by the Republican party as a wedge issue.

I'm curious if these same people would be interested in cutting back the military budget so they couldn't afford things like drones, which no rifle or assault weapon would stand a chance against.

I believe if the NRA doesn't call for cutting back the military budget, their 'no gun control' argument doesn't hold water.

The Billionaire Hypocrisy of Helping the Poor

There's one thing that both progressives and conservatives can agree on, and they can quote both FDR and Ronald Reagan on it.

And that is that, "The best welfare program is a job."

FDR extended the idea to say that when there are no jobs, the government should act as an employer of last resort.
