    Less than a week after the shootings at a recruitment center in Chattanooga, another "lone white male" killed 3 people (including himself) at a theater in Louisiana. During the same time period, an armed civilian volunteer guarding a recruitment center in Ohio accidentally discharged his weapon. Although no one was injured, the shot left a nasty hole in the concrete outside the recruitment center.

    To no one's surprise, the Republican response to these shootings is typical - and dead wrong. Like the governors of 7 other states (all of whom are Republican) Governor Ducey just issued a proclamation that at least 200 members of the Arizona National Guard are required to be armed while on duty. In addition, his proclamation would allow guardsmen to being THEIR OWN WEAPONS to guard meetings.

    My further thoughts on this insanity are published below:

    Guy, as I said in quite a few other threads; we are slowly but surely moving towards a "Gestapo" copy. Indeed we have to be more afraid of our own people than terrorists. Anyway "real" terrorists have a "cause" we are killing people in their homeland so we are asking for it. But it seems that somehow we (the GOP?) want to create "fear" amongst ourselves, so this country can be made ready for a dictatorship of the "right" I guess that is the objective.

    I'm starting to believe (through observation) that maybe most of of Earth's population is no different, nor any better than people from the twelth century.

    Most of the planet lacks any education in math and science....The population is uneducated, lacks social skills, accepts indoctrination way too easily...in combination with poverty, selfishness, entitlement and laziness....and most important.....on many different types of mood altering drugs (meds)

    I can remember in the early eighties as a young man...this never happened....These random public shootings never happened.

    And yes....all this "Stirring the pot" propaganda from all these groups (RELIGION) plays a major role in all this. Abortion, gay marriage, confederate flags, womens rights, gun ownership, religion in text books, the media, our elected idiots......all originating from religion.

    Crazy ass world. After the Chattanooga shooting it was said on the news that persons working at Recruiting centers could not carry guns. The next day there were citizens shown on the news with their large guns "Protecting" these sites. I bet a dollar that as soon as it's no longer news worthy, these people will find other things to do. Hell, a job could be a good idea. Another killing and guns are involved. If we only had 18 or 20 persons with conceal carry permits in each theater, this might have not happened. That was sarcasm.

    Tony, the way we are going is that the mailman, garbage men, UPS all have guns in the future; this going to be fun indeed I guess I'll mount a 30 caliber machine gun on the roof programmed by my cell phone as well a fully armed drone with napalm on board. The NRA will applaud me as well the GOP.
