    While worrying about the Second, let's not forget the First. Maybe it was in poor taste, but it was mildly funny.

    I dont think you guys got the point... It apears to me that they newspaper is arguing more in our favor, diplaying how idiotic our oppenents thinking really is. Its not to be taken seriously, its to make a point.

    It will be interesting to see the reaction, if any, from the leftist media.

    Gotta admit, as twisted as some of the humor is, the other article from the Onion called Victim Of Mall Shooting Determined Not To Die In Yankee Candle had me rolling...

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

    Lighten up a Little

    Keep in mind that this is an ULTRA SATIRICAL newspaper. Nothing in it is supposed to be taken seriously. Remember MAD magazine? This is like MAD on steroids!

    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Personally I didn't find it funny at all. In extremely poor taste.

    That being said, a paraphrase is in order: I may not agree with what he says at all, but I will defend to the death his right to say it.

    But of course, note this:

    All I can say is that a number of factors—most of them insane—have resulted in a situation we're just all going to have to accept. Who can really say why some random people, guilty of nothing other than happening to visit their local bank at the wrong time, will be tragically gunned down in a scene of horror and gore? Believe me, if I could do anything about it, I would. It's just not in my control.
    I don't know about where you live, but here in MI a bank is a gun-free (or, as some like to call it, a "target rich"--now that's funny!) zone.

    Very subtly reinforces my notion that a so-called gun-free zone only endangers people because it prevents law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves and others.

    To make the point that there are sick monsters on the loose? Did we have to be told that?
