Prosecute the torture.

Another Shooting in America

This time in Idaho.

With the First Presbyterian Church wrapped in yellow crime scene tape, parishioners had to go elsewhere to mourn the victims of a shooting rampage that has stunned this quiet college town.

A gunman sprayed dozens of bullets into a courthouse, killing a police officer and wounding a sheriff's deputy and a civilian, then went to a nearby church where he apparently killed a church sexton and himself, police said.

Gee, if only there'd been someone armed in the area of the courthouse. Then surely the shooter would have been stopped before killing that police officer and before wounding that sheriff's deputy.

However your side (Gun Control) states that if armed assailant breaks into your house, you should not fight back with a firearm and instead call the same police that got killed at the courthouse.

Ahh, that makes sense. The good citizens of Idaho, although armed to the teeth, eschewed the "gun 'em down there before they can gun us down here" option simply because they are gun control advocates. Otherwise the killer would have been riddled with lead.

How enlightened of them. And how erudite of you, Dauphin, to make the point. We lowly libs are grateful for your wisdom.
