Sorry son, the NRA is owned by weapons and ammunitions manufacturers. Those aunts and uncles you speak of are merely puppets.

Personally, I'm waiting for Old White Angry Men Who Have Nothing Better To Do Than Post Moronic Comments on The Vindicator Web Page Day.

Oh please Walter, enough of your macho blustering. We're talking about children here. These kids trusted their priests. Back in my day, there was no more trustworthy person on earth than a priest or a nun. The violation of trust is mind-numbing. For far too long, the church has gotten away with thousands of cases of child abuse. Priests were sheltered and protected, and moved to another community where they could find a new group of kids to abuse. When the church had the choice to protect either an innocent child or a pervert priest, they chose the priest every single time! Every time the pope or our bishop spouts off about protecting the unborn, I have to chuckle. Let's protect the unborn fellas, but little kids...not so much. The level of hypocrisy in the Catholic church is staggering. I sure would love to hear Bishop Murray address that. However, from a legal standpoint, Gains is absolutely correct. Victims need to come forward and identify these priests so that justice can be served.

olddude...I beg to differ with you. For a full professor to retire with a six figure pension at 50 would mean he or she would have had to have taught at least 30 years. Hardly possible as no one I know of at that level would have a PhD at the age of 20. In addition, the only full professors I know who would retire with a 6 figure salary would be those few who teach in either engineering or business. I assure you the vast majority of teaching faculty retire with far less than 6-figure salaries. Now university administrators...that's a different story.

What I read from this letter is that Joe is an angry white man who wants his country back, where slavery was legal and women were chattel. Good luck with that bud, let me know how that works for you. (Again, Joe, please search for a recent editorial titled "Cry of the Angry White Man. You might recognize yourself. )
More of Joe's rants...

Well, it HAS been a very bad couple of months for the Republican party.

I agree Mr. Eash. I watched the NRA folks on this morning's national programming; they are sounding increasingly more desperate and ridiculous. Hopefully sensible gun restrictions are on their way.

Please explain to me why gun violence is so prevalent in America. I'd love to hear your rationale. The reason gun sales have spiked in the past week...are you kidding? Because these folks know serious and much needed gun control is going to be passed. Tell me...are you morons are OK with those innocents being killed? How do you sleep at night? Yep, more guns are the answer.

If only the first victim, Adam Lanza's mother, had been a gun owner, she could have stopped this before it started. Hope that logic and irony isn't lost on you nitwits. And what about my constitutional right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Don't I have a right to be safe? And how many guns do you need to feel safe anyway? One? Twenty? One hundred and twenty? You foolishly think because you have guns that you will be safe from the boogey man. Hardly. When was the last time a mass murderer was stopped by an armed individual? Do you want the entire citizenry to be armed? Is that the kind of country you want to live in? I don't...and it appears that most Americans don't want to lived in an armed encampment, either. Perhaps it's some kind of macho thing with you people. Real men don't need semi-automatic weapons to take down a deer. And if you do, that makes you kind of a p*ssy in my book.

Adam's mother was a stupid gun nut. And while I hate to speak ill of the dead, she had to have some kind of inkling that something was seriously wrong with her son. Anyone who has a mentally deranged child should have those guns under lock and key. Could it have been prevented? Hell yes!!!
