    Regardless, of your intent, that's how English works. You might think I'm nit-picking and normally I'd agree, but when you denigrate the competence and integrity of the President of the United States the bar gets raised, IMHO.

    So now that we've got the good weather, lets all ride and debate things like "Gixer Vs. Ninja", and who's a squid, who's a poser, and who's the real deal, and other things bikeish.

    Peace,

    Oh for the love of shit... Are you serious? You are nit-picking, and over a ranting post on the internet at that.

    And btw, that is NOT how the English language works. Put those two sentences back together, as they were, since the entire paragraph should be referenced to find out the intent and context of the statements within it. As shown in the last sentence, it is clear that both statements are OPINION because there is no factual evidence given, no references provided, no specific statement of fact or truth, and the last sentence is clearly expressing an opinion that references the previous sentence.

    As for the bar getting raised, this isn't a monarchy, he's a politician just like any other one.

    Last time there was one guy making all the decisions, y'all packed up old England and landed on Plymouth Rock.
    Isn't the whole point of a democracy so the power isn't in one persons hands?

    Was an AR even used in the shooting?
    Fast forward to 4:30 you can see the footage of an officer securing the weapon.

    Sure wouldn't be the first time the media got it all wrong. I remember the initial reports that the AR was in the car and he used multiple handguns.

    "Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would requre total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons." - Ron Paul

    If we're not willing to accept "AR15's are dangerous and should be banned cause this guy killed children with one," then we can't really hold up "look it wasn't even an AR15!" as an argument against banning them.
