Yet you are free to use this tragidy to attack every DU member gun owner. L0oniX Dec 2012 #24
Yes, because your ilk is always defending guns on the day of yet another slaughter DisgustipatedinCA Dec 2012 #27
Nope but go on and blame every DU member gun owner for this tragedy. L0oniX Dec 2012 #33

However heartfelt it may be, I don't see it helping open up any sort of dialog.

Should DU members pick this time of tragedy to attack fellow Democratic members? I believe the gunsion is there to keep DU from becoming divided over the issue of gun ownership.

for this post. But as we can all see today DU is loaded with hatred and is already divided. What happened today makes all of us sick and we all want to do something to help. But instead of coming together as a party we are segregated and attacked.

there are 26 victims today, you are not one of them.

and your guns do not have feelings, nor do they cry or mourn deaths.

I didn't start the attack on DU members who own guns. It's everyone else here who has used this tragedy to attack DU member gun owners and lumped them all in with the shooter.

Hey, whatever rocks your boat, dude. The fact that allot of unclassy stuff got posted today doesn't make your post better.

Maybe the irony of the post I'm now replying to will strike you, eventually. After some thinking, maybe?
