Bad parenting, bad dating, and bad Republicans!

What? Bananas aren't in season?
Tough call on this one. At 1st glance I'd have to lay blame on Pedro but..... Damn!!! Was the woman blind, or what?
The sap likes rap; and rap is crap.
Having lived through a political coup and, subsequent, dictatorship I'm 100% behind civilian gun ownership. That said.... The fact that the federal data base isn't used or can't be used by civilians is not right and this issue SHOULD be rectified. We've got plenty of connectivity today to allow it.
Also, one of the smartest things I've heard coming out of this latest media frenzy is that there could/should also be a data base of the insane people that are running around loose! Of all the condemnation I've heard from the shootings control of the mentally unstable was never mentioned.

Pedro Rojas must be hard up. He had a previous arrest in a prostitution sting.

Maybe he was a handy man.

passing gas- I hope that man never gets those children back. I also hope the next time he farts someone kicks his ass.
12/21- Well it was the end of the world for some people, every day is.
sex toys- Eventually they will make one that can be controlled by a cyber lover online I am sure.
rappin' robber- His talent with rap is why he has stick with robbery.

Vibrator: wireless is hardly new, but patty's comment makes good sense; if they need a test subject, I'm sure she'll take one for the team.
Maybe they can make it programmable for time and GPS. That would liven up the commute. Just so it doesn't blab about where it's been.
Rojas: Expat, ITA. If I were a woman, I'd have to think long and hard about which option to choose.
Guns: It's about time some Congresscritters grew a pair and listened to the electorate, rather than the $$$ of the NRA. The original focus of the right to bear arms was a musket, kept behind the door in case the Redcoats showed up, and which took a heck of a long time to reload. Plus, it's not like you need a 30-round clip on an urban assault rifle to go duck hunting. Aside from anything else, if you shot a duck with an AR-15, there wouldn't be anything left to eat.

You're missing the point of the original focus of the 2nd amendment, which had nothing to do with what type of arms, musket or ar15, it was and is meant to prevent the govt. from taking away the arms that were the means to keep free men free. At the time the military, and the 'occupying' British were armed with muskets too. Current gun laws already make it illegal to own the same guns the military are armed with. You cannot legally own a fully automatic weapon or a missile launcher or other "destructive device" in the U.S. while the military are fully equipped with them. Sure you don't need a 30 round clip for duck hunting, but maybe you do need on to keep the freedom you already enjoy.

That is exactly correct @Canny Scot. The right to bear arms was written int the constitution by men who had just made a violent break from an oppressive government. The idea being that if the new government being formed were to become oppressive the people would have the means to rise up against it. Sadly, our own government still remains the greatest threat to our freedoms today.
