Aurora, Batman, NRA

Shipwreck, house on fire, civil war... all disasters & tragedies, all in the news.
My two "News in Pictures" entries this week, were pulled; FN moderator's view is that satire and sorrow don't mix.
My newslink was to a report about some NRA dummy making a typical remark about the Aurora shooting. I attempted to denounce NRA and Americn attitude towards gun possession with this entry entitled "Who's afraid of AlQaida when you got NRA?".
I'm disappointed and I suspect FN to fear reaction from NRA lovers.

I don't think the NRA has anything to do with it, I would think it has more to do with having some respect for the grieving families of those killed in this horrific incident!

I agree with Disasterman. Just as we shouldn't "chop" the horrendous slaughter going on in Syria, we shouldn't make any statements about the horrific incident in Aurora. Satire has no place here.

I saw that entry on the News of the week & thought Holy H]ll , some nerve . Its not cool nor funny to glorify a Killer. I'm glad the moderators took it down . Theres a limit to satire on this site when it comes to news like this, so use your brain & figure it out !!!!

Grow Some Balls You Sissies!

Our Governments more Responsible for this Shooting than worrying about Offending Some Namby-Pamby Mr. or Mrs. Milk Toast on the Internet. Jesus!

We Should be the Champion of Free Press, Free Speech and Free Expression. The Same Reason that these Chops Get Pulled are the Same Reason Our Democratic Republic is Failed and Wrought with Corruption.

Everyone is Always So Concerned They Might Lose a Dollar, They Sell the Whole Principal of Free Expression Down the River.

Grow Some slurping Balls!

Thank You! ...And Have a Nice Day!

I thought it was not to upset ppl involved like the families... who cares about the homogenized humans .. IN my opinion.. in some time when this joker[ goes on trial we will all enjoy making devil horns and guns coming out of his eyes...


I guess theres a fine line between free press ,,free speech.. and bad manners..

Trying to balance speech and manners is a recipe for failure. Free speech is necessarily rude, but it needn't incite violence or my breakfast to make a surprise comeback appearance.

Link to the chop (without posting it as an image...just throw it somewhere and post the url). My guess is that the mods balanced it's quality with its message and that's why it was pulled, but who knows?

As an aside, gun ownership is a civil liberty like free speech, and it is nearly as important as well. The NRA is an organization that defends this civil liberty, and while most Americans may not use the 2nd amendment properly, nor understand why it is as important as it is (Madison put it at #2 for a reason), I am just as thankful for them as I am for the ACLU (and, that is why I am a card carrying member of both organizations.).

I'm not a huge fan of permits, though background checks at the time of purchase should be more thorough in my opinion.

The instruction part is huge, though, and it needs to be ongoing. That's the whole point of the 2nd amendment - keep the citizens armed so you won't need an army.

Of course, that's just if you want to defend the country. If you want to go on offense, you need a professional army like the ones we have now.

Ammunition needs a little more regulation as well. That kid in Aurora picked up 6,000 rounds online.

6,000 rounds really isn't that much, but it's a ton to buy all at the same time (unless you're reloading your own ammo and picked up a bunch from a private party or in an estate sale or something)

I am glad guns are banned in England, though they went a bit too far by banning even Olympic sportsmen who have to train abroad.

Unfortunately the criminals and gangs still manage to get hold of guns.

Aurora is a terrible tragedy I was tempted to make a tribute to the victims and their families but decided against it.

This horrible incident should not be a subject for chopping until after the trial, when we can demonise the perpetrator

Laughter is part of healing (and some say it's even the best medicine). Obviously, you're threading a needle with an elephant to do it in such a way as to display at least a modicum of decorum, but for those who are successful, bravo.

When you bury things, all you do is make them grow.

And those would be whom (or what, I suppose)?

Also, if we're gonna list out everything that human logic precludes, we're gonna be here a loooooooooooong time.

I don't think "Laughter is the best medicine" is too far out there, and I have no idea why my physical appearance matters in a strictly online environment, but what the heIl?

I'm nearly 40. How old did you think I was?
(that pic is 2 years old...no digital pics of my face, sans one picture of me in London and one where I have a fairly large pair of sunglasses ON (not cartoony large, but they're good size glasses...I usually prefer women's sunglasses when I buy them) exist in this world. Sorry.

I kinda look this this guy, if he hadn't broke his nose a million times.



Oh yeah, the picture in London looks horrible, so no, I'm not posting it.

EDIT - that pic is actually 4 years old now. I don't look a lot different than I did when I was 15, though (which is why I probably still get carded for smokes) except the facial hair on one side of my chin (and only there) is gray.

What can I say? Good genes and stupid decisions...guess that's what keeps me lookin' young.
