Doctors for Sensible Gun Laws
"first do no harm" - gun control LAWS lead to far more deaths than 'easy access' ever could.

Ahh, but we don't. Recently posters (and don't get me wrong, I don't agree with the sentiment) with anti Jewish statements showed up at a high school. They want to track down, and here's the important part, prosecute those responsible. There have been other cases of "hate speech" that have resulted in people being prosecuted.

Tag a mosque and you will be charged with much more than spraying graffiti. It's a form of expression that has existed since the first disgruntled cave man picked up a piece of chalk and drew on the cave wall. Our own founding fathers employed it and it was certainly meant to be protected speech.

Guys, Orwell had it right. Soon just thinking something the government, or a special interest group, doesn't like will be a crime.

I find it disturbing that you can insult certain people but not the enemies of the free world.
Sad misguided nanny state politicians just do not want to hear naughty words in the playground and that we should all play happily together.... :roll:
