    Steve McNair's famous face becomes just another victim of American gun culture:

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/f...ictim_of_our_gun_culture.html#ixzz0KTYvinty&D

    Once again, the gun is more to blame than the one who pulls the trigger. :mad:

    :cuss:

    What a tool! Note that this is not an opinion column either.

    Meanwhile, he completely ignores the tens of millions of peaceable American gun owners who own firearms and do not engage in violence.

    The Media seems to always fail to mention the fact that guns in private hands are overwhelmingly used to save lives, most of the time without firing a shot.

    More children are killed playing football in school than are murdered by guns.

    Maybe we should ban football.;)

    Funny how the writer forgets to mention how a drunk and stoned Donte Stallworth killed a pedestrian with his Bently and paid his way to a 30 day jail term.

    Doesn't mention how the rich and famous jock culture gets away with stuff like this yet condems the gun culture.

    Hypocrite.

    I think it's just tagged for an edit after 10 minutes. Why is that bad? Just curious.

    It's always the guns fault obviously some gun wanted Steve McNair out of the picture so it loaded itself up, aimed itself and pulled the trigger.

    I had an interesting encounter today on this same "guns cause damage all by themselves" line.

    I was in the Post Office mailing off some Wristbands and wearing mine. Lady asks me what the writing is on the band? I tell her it's the Second Amendment--Lady asks "what is that." One of the Postal Workers pipes in "It's the Right to Keep and Bear arms."---where I live is pretty pro gun for the most part. Lady says, "yeah I think everyone should be able to be armed." Here is where it gets awkward. Same lady pops back with, "I won't allow Guns in my House though or anyone in my family to have them, A gun killed my brother." -- My response was while in a bit of shock, " I can see how the loss of a relative through the misuse of a firearm might make it uncomfortable to be around them." I would have had more to say but I could tell she was already saddened so I didn't want to push it. I wanted to say it's not the gun-- but although she doesn't want a gun in Her house or in the possession of her family she supports everyone else's rights. I was also saddened that someone didn't know what the Second Amendment was.

    It's the New York Daily News.... To call it a newspaper is like calling the National Enquirer one. This one's not worth getting upset over. NO ONE takes the NYDN seriously.

    If you don't cheat on your wife, things like this don't tend to happen. Plenty of husbands have come early from work to find their wife cheating on them, and next thing you know there's a news story about a gun being used to kill two adulterers. If you don't want a bear to disembowel you, don't walk up to it and kick it in the face. Just some things should be common sense by now you'd figure.

    But hey, this writers sounds like he is afraid of inanimant objects. Should probably put him in a nice ruber room with a straight jacket till he gets over this irrational fear. Don't want him going home and fleeing from a ringing telephone out into the street and getting hit by a car. Because I'm told that would be a shame.

    But of course a gun in the right hands will only get used against you and you will surely die. At least he admits a gun is an equalizer, even though he thinks it only works for bad people.

    Actually, I think that is considered progress for anyone with rudimentary math skills. 36<41

    New York Daily News is IMHO left wing extremists/propaganda trash.
    As stated, no one takes it serious, unless one has had an lobotomy.

    Well according to the latest, USA/AP today reports that gunpowder residue was found on the hands of the woman (really, how shocking). But also she purchased the gun two days before.

    Now remind me how old you must be to purchase a semi-automatic pistol? She was 20 when she died, so we can expect a lot more flack to come of this.

    So in a world with zero guns no one would ever die from a violent crime?

    I guess that all guns. knives, crowbars, baseball bats, sticks, rocks, poles, etc. should be banned as well.

    Who cares if there was a knife in her other hand in case the gunshot didn't kill him? The guns are the REAL problem!

    Is it to be assumed that all homicides are committed using guns?
