It Should always be about the Who and not the What -- too many op/ed and factual articles are posted

on here showing us that the Gun was the Tool used and the determining factor was not How but Why it was used.

I thought so. Thank you. Wish I wasn't so lazy as to find the threads about it from earlier

this year. The Anti's were pissed and making fun of it. Funny, how times change - or not.

I know a traumatic brain injured woman who "walks" with a hammerhead cane -- looks like this --

She acts irrationally, too and uses her TBI as an "excuse" and...oh, by the way...she is -57- years old.

I don't have enough details to make an informed comment on the above OP.

I am just saying ...

The ACLU and Gun Owners’ Rights

Author - James Sharp; Sunday, January 13, 2013

Ask just about any conservative about hypocrisy on the part of liberals and it is a pretty sure bet that he or she could provide you with many examples. Just this week, we saw the brouhaha that resulted when Al Gore sold his Current TV network to the Arab news organization Al Jazeera. Gore’s sale to a group with ties to Middle Eastern oil is laughable when taken in the context of his years-long vendetta against American oil interests over the burning of fossil fuels.

With the recent news over the nation’s debt ceiling, I like to point out then-Senator Barack Obama’s words from 2008 calling George Bush’s attempts to raise the debt limit “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic”. Hypocrisy on parade.

After the horrific murders at Sandy Hook last month, the news media began almost non-stop reporting on efforts nationwide to curtail the rights of lawful gun owners. Since the shootings in Connecticut, dozens of liberal politicians and celebrities have spoken out against gun ownership, specifically with respect to so-called “assault weapons” and semi-automatic firearms with magazine capacities greater than some arbitrarily-chosen number of rounds. One need not look too deeply into the ranks of the liberal elite to find blatant hypocrisy. It is probably no more evident than in the case of actor Kevin Bacon who has repeatedly spoken out against guns. Bacon put on quite a display of prowess with a firearm in the 1994 movie “The River Wild” in which his character murdered a US Forest Service ranger (one of Native American heritage no less) in cold blood using a large-caliber handgun.

While looking into liberal hypocrisy with respect to Second Amendment rights, it occurred to me that I had not heard anything at all from the American Civil Liberties Union pertaining to their stance on proposed gun control legislation. I decided to look over the national group’s web site: aclu.org. I was amazed at the number of activities by the organization pertaining to a wide variety of issues as gay & lesbian rights, the rights of prisoners (both in the US and on foreign soil), the rights of immigrants, racial justice, reproductive rights, and women’s rights, among others. But, surprisingly, nowhere on their site was I able to find a single word about the rights of gun owners.

Given that the media have been rife with stories about the Obama administration’s efforts to impinge upon the rights of gun owners, one would think that the ACLU’s web site would give the subject at least some sort of mention. However, on their web site’s page “This Week in Civil Liberties (1/11/2013)”, there is not a single word about guns, gun owners, or the Second Amendment.
