Back to my original question. What would you do if you see a gun on the gun heading toward your row?

I would report to managment that the patron was carrying and then head out the door before the patron was approached by management (assuming managment did not tell me to mind my own business) - shootings (not always intentional as evidenced by your Texas story) can occur when someone who is carrying is confronted.

There is no way I would confront (or for that matter even question) someone who thought it was A-OK to come into a public place packing

Private citizens have broad rights (constitutional and statutory) to possess firearms and I have a right to steer clear of them

Did anyone see the tweet by Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto?

"I hope the girls whose boyfriends died to save them were worthy of the sacrifice."

What an ass

Yep - Taranto (who has a track record of being a tool) initiaily took exception to the harsh responses to what he described as his "challenging" tweet but now has a column posted that tries to walk back what he now describes as his "ill considered" tweet

We intended this to be thought-provoking, but to judge by the response, very few people received it that way. The vast majority found it offensive and insulting. This column has often argued that a failure of public communication is the fault of the public communicator, and that's certainly true in this case.

Stupid tweeting - it's not just a problem for pro athletes

I did find it thought provoking. The thought it provoked was, "What an ass"

Using this tragedy for cheap political points is as low on here as it is when the Christian right groups started blaming it on gays or opining which of the victims may get into heaven. What's disturbing, killer, is your crass opportunism after these killings.

Here's your opportunism ....Obama is using it to come and take everyone's guns...


Obama Calls For Government Action On Guns In The Wake Of Colorado Shooting

Five days after a gunman killed 12 people in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater, President Obama spoke at length about the need for government action to reduce gun violence, including hinting at a return to the assault weapons ban and tightening restrictions on gun purchases.

On Capitol Hill, gun control has been a non-starter in the wake of the Colorado shooting. Mitt Romney said in an interview Wednesday that he didn’t see the need for new firearms regulations following the tragedy.

Obama distinguished himself Wednesday in a speech before the National Urban League convention in New Orleans. The president tied Aurora shooting and other high-profile mass shootings in recent years to continuing urban gun violence and said it was time to take greater legislative steps to curb the problem.

“I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms,” Obama said. “But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals — that they belong on the battlefields of war and not on the streets of our cities.”

“What I said in the wake of Tucson was that we were going to stay on this persistently. So we’ve been able to take some actions on our own, recognizing that it’s not always easy to get things through Congress these days,” Obama said.

It's not playing politics if the law is proposed is to prevent the actual thing that happened. That's the way laws work (when ALEC isn't involved) See a problem - address the problem if you can.

What Obama didn't do is try to be funny about mass murder like the asshole who made the pic you posted.
