Hundreds gather for Sikh temple shooting memorial
OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — Hundreds of people streamed into a Wisconsin high school Friday to pay their final respects to six worshippers gunned down by a white supremacist at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee.
Somber, tearful mourners, most wearing scarves on their heads in the Sikh tradition, greeted victims' family members with hugs at the Oak Creek High School gymnasium. Six open caskets were arranged inside the gymnasium, with flowers adorning the bodies. A large video screen flashed photos of those killed and injured.
Mourners took their seats as Sikh singers sang hymns in Punjabi, an Indian dialect. One of the singers paused to translate some lyrics into English.
"Dear God, you have given me this body and this soul. This body is doing whatever you want me to do. You take this soul, this is your soul," he said.

3. It depicts the NRA and gun owners
as heartless people which is far from the truth. And I'm not going to get into an argument over this, it's my opinion, I'm entitled to it just as your entitled to yours.
The cartoon is offensive to me and millions of lawful gun owners.

5. Why do you assume that all NRA members are stupid?
I always thought that doctors, lawyers. judges. and every day americans were smart. They'll be surprised that they're stupid.
No, not all gun owners are members of the NRA, there are appox. 4.5 million members out of appox 80 million gun owners, of which I am one, not the NRA-ILA, just the NRA.
And save your little insults please, they're not welcome.

7. Attacks on foreigners are nothing new.
I don't see any reason to start blaming the NRA for something that has been going since before the NRA even existed.
