    You fools that think taking guns away is the answer need your heads examined. These schools are gun free zones. These evil people specifically target them because they know they won’t have anyone to stop them. Yet you think making us disarmed even more is gonna work. Mercy you people are so ignorant. Just keep believing everything your masters tell you. I ain’t giving up my guns. Not one of them. Even the evil scary black ones that give you wimps nightmares.

    Thrasher Magazine has a segment called "Firing Line"....and also features a baphomet as its logo. Great way to remember your son??? He is an artist. He must be making this statement on purpose.

    We need action. Americans have a subborn belief about everything in their constitution written by people who lived in completely different times hundreds of years ago.
    When that amendment was added, there was no machines guns, no rifles and non-whites were not even considered humans.
    All has changed. If Amercia can abolish slavery and open her arms to people of all ethnicities, which are themselves changes those writers of our constitution would vehemently oppose, I see nothing wrong with adapting our gun policies to suit our time.

      @Adam how about a start by getting the guns out of the hands of people making threats or have a history of violence. I think we'd see results much quicker with that.

    • Juan

      @Adam Yes, just infringing upon it, which is AGAINST the Constitution, for a good reason.
