    It doesn't even make any sense. It's like blaming the NRA for 911.

    I'm not sure what his point is. What does the NRA have to do with carrying a bomb in a backpack?

    I notice stories already being circulated about those guys not having a license to posses their firearms. I doubt they had licenses for the explosives they had either but everyone seems to ignore that inconvenient detail.

    It doesn't matter that it doesn't make sense, etc. It is the AGENDA, and he is helping to push it. These people DO NOT use logic. This cartoonist won the Pulitzer Prize several years ago-he is entrenched.

    Unbelievable. I love how the NRA is somehow responsible for everything wrong in the world. Never mind 140 years of teaching safety and responsibility with firearms. No, my friends, the NRA is a terrorist organization.

    I looked up some of his other "comics." Seems like he's just a HUGE cry baby that somehow gets his stuff printed. What an idiot. It blows my mind that papers would print garbage like that....and that the readers of the paper haven't thrown a fit about it.

    CORRECT! See here is the problem here: I'm in KY, that nationally in almost ALL races goes Republican. But the two largest cities Louisville and Lexington (where I live) are University towns (code for liberal). So in the two largest papers, they are WAY left. There's usually some pushback in local talk radio, but it doesn't get much attention.

    I live in ky too and can agree with the above. Let him go to hazard and work there printing that crap. My bet he won't last long. I'm proud of ky but really sickened with Lou and lex

    I don't live in KY and I (still) emailed the editor and referenced the internet link pointing out how poorly this reflects on the paper as an organization.
