    She is typical of the liberal, stupid media, who think they are more intelligent than everyone else.

    Funny how she compares the US to ONE country(Canada).

    Why wouldn't she compare the US to other countries whose restrictions on fireams are even worse than the US and Canada, as evidenced Here;

    Gun Violence, Gun Violence homicides statistics - Countries compared - NationMaster

    Sure Canada doesn't even get on the list, but we {the US} are #16 down on the list.

    If you look at TOTAL crime in the various countries,

    Total crimes statistics - countries compared - NationMaster Crime
    Canada has 2,516,918

    The US having 11,877,218

    With the US population @ around 350,000,000, and Canadas @ around 35,000,000, or just 10%
    The US should have closer to over 25,000,000 crimes,


    Some comparison,, where would you "feel" safer?

    You are way safer in the US, of course.

    Conclusion;
    The author is a moron.

    Nice. You should post that as a comment to the article.

    Not that the author would reconsider, but it would probably open the eyes of some of the sheeple that read that article.

    If you’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing Michael Moore’s documentary, Bowling for Columbine,
    The debate will rage on between the anti-violence and anti-war activists, such as myself
    These 2 statements alone shows the author is an idiot.

    Just look at her picture, and you can see, young & dumb, raised by the "villiage" mentality, and educated in our socialistic
    indoctrination centers we call college, and this is what we get.

    Would love to see/hear how she feels 5-10 years from now.

    The opening paragraph was enough to determine this was propaganda.

    During the time that the Bill of Rights was written many states were dealing with Democracy in its infancy, there were still threats of tyrannical governments and military run states, that is why this amendment was written in the first place.
    And to think that tyranny no longer exists? Gun control in today's world works. Just ask the Mexican drug cartels.

    I guess I don't know what's wrong the "raised by a village" mentality. My parents were great, but there were a lot of other people outside the home that had an influence on me.

    As to this op-ed, how can you read that stuff? I don't know which is worse, her atrocious (lack of) sentence structure, her lack of understanding of the way our goverenment works, or her failure to sort out the truth from the propaganda. If she was a middle schooler, I'd say she has something to work with. As a journalist with ten years of experience, I'd say she needs to find a new way to make money. I don't mind that she has a different viewpoint that I do. I just wish she could articulate it logically if she chooses to call herself a journalist.

    As to commenting on her article, I have a strict "Don't feed the trolls - it only encourages them" policy. :)

    A poorly written diatribe with a massive, unattributed cut and paste plagiarism of wikipedia. More verbose than I... Er... I give it a d+... not a failing grade... I want Erin to feel okay with herself...

    The author is more than likely one of those that would feel a raped, murdered woman is morally superior to a woman who used a weapon to defend herself.

    However, some day, and I actually hope that the day never comes, as I do not wish harm on any, she may find herself wishing that she or her companion had a firearm when the door is being kicked in, or the thugs are approaching rapidly on a dark street.

    But people in that mindset cannot allow themselves to believe that they could actually be in danger. In their mind, it is all flowers and lollipops and candy land, because there are police, and the military, and that will NEVER happen to them.

    I would thank her to stay disarmed if she so chooses, and leave my right to self defense with the weapon of my choice alone.

    Couple of thoughts:

    In Total crimes statistics - countries compared - NationMaster Crime notice who is #2. The UK. But how can this be? They have banned private ownership - yes? Shouldn't they be much further dow the list?

    The moment she references anything from Michael Moore as a good thing, her credability evaporates. "people left doors unlocked", I can remember my parents talking about this when I was little (about 50 years ago). That was in the country. Every home had at least a rifle or shotgun. It was part of farm life. I'd be willing to bet money that if I walk up to a house in Montreal today, the door will be locked.

    The last sentence closes it for me. It's for the chillllldren. I think I'm safe in saying anytime a liberal says something is being done "for the children" BOHICA.

    That was one of the worst articles I've seen being passed as journalism. and I am sick of the Constitution is a living document argument, if it were, we wouldn't have the amendment process!

    ^^^^^^^When Hillary Clinton^^^^

    made reference to that phrase, she meant the "whole" government, as in,They know better how to raise, educate and indoctrinate YOUR child through social programs and the like, henceforth, "The Whole Villiage"
    Not just mom dad grandpa, and maybe an aunt & uncle thrown in for good measure.

    ^^^^^^^^^YEAH^^^^^^^^^

    or at the very least, if she thinks Canada is so touchy, feely, goodie-goodie,she should MOVE THERE, and take all the leftist, liberal whinning, gun-hating crybabys with her.

    Michael Moore indeed. Hate to admit the idiot is a native of Mi.

    Anytime somebody pulls the "its for the children" diatribe out, it makes me just about throw up in my mouth.

    If I don't agree with them, I somehow must hate kids. Fools.

    What a tremendous waste of electrons.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
