The KANSAS CITY ATHEIST COALITION still has not expressed sympathy for the Church Shooting victims.

Perhaps I missed it?

I call on President Josh to speak out NOW!

If the gun control folks now argue that this is just a numbers game, i.e. Toll on humanity, then they should at all ways people are being killed: Cars, drugs, crossing a vast desert in Arizona
You will find that the same people who want gun control don't really care about saving lives at all. If they did they be consistent and demand the abolition of drugs or cars
Cars don't kill people, drivers do

You lose Byron, smarter people than you weigh in against you;

"The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose."
- James Earl Jones

"A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity."
- Sigmund Freud

" ... the right to defend one's home and one's person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law."
- Martin Luther King

"That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."
- George Orwell

"The philosophy of gun control: Teenagers are roaring through town at 90MPH, where the speed limit is 25. Your solution is to lower the speed limit to 20."
- Sam Cohen (inventor of the neutron bomb)

"Just as the First and Fourth Amendment secure individual rights of speech and security respectively, the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. This view of the text comports with the all but unanimous understanding of the Founding Fathers."
- Attorney General John Ashcroft

"A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand."
- Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Gun deaths is a disease except when KCPD increases their numbers of killings then demands more money because they're under staffed but keep killing because its easy to do with no transparency in the police department.
