    I don't think anyone's forgetting Sandy Hook - quietly or otherwise.

    To me gang members = mafia/mob members.

    Do you get concerned or sad when you hear of a mob hit on another mob member?

    not one story on goolge news
    one story on yahoo news....about americans still wanting their guns

    the story is pretty much dead in most places.....sure you'll get an occaisional article, but a college student getting stalking orders against her parents is bigger news on yahoo

    sandy hook was more shocking than the colorado movie shooting, but given that lanza is dead, we can't even have a trial to talk about.

    unfortunately, this story has virtually completed its cycle

    I see where you tried to go but the "true number "people" killed in Chicago" was just worded in a way that theres a difference people killed. I know you meant, in your opinion, the "quality" of the people meaning non-mob members.

    Believe it or not that is a good year, comparatively speaking.. compared to the 90's, 500 homicides is about average.. slightly higher than last year.

    This is another argument to get more guns off of the street.. interesting how this post politicizes death and is an effort to desenstize people that this is acceptable...

    The figures for the past 23 years..

    Do you have anything to say in response to Mrs. completely violating your dumb thread premise one post above yours? Or will you be shying away from being held accountable again for your latest faux-outrage falsehood?

    it's fading.....accept it.....

    people can feel bad, but only for awhile.....the sheer ugliness of the whole ordeal is more than a human brain can latch onto for more than a couple of weeks........gotta get back to wheel of fortune

    LOL... well, besides the fact that Mrs. showed you it isn't fading at all. ... How long SHOULD it be 24/7 in order to satisfy people like you? What more needs to be said? Gun nuts are still gonna nut on with irrelevant nonsense and miss the point entirely.
