So true. There is quite a bit of gun violence on the east coast.

And I agree. I am a spiritual person who attends a traditional Christian Church. I think for myself.

But no...and I'm just thinking, "wow". Do you ever wonder how stuff like this happens? How does the conversation go from "why don't we have a raffle" to "you know what would really bring 'em in? an assault rifle".

Well, to tell the truth, the boys in my 8th grade class would have been there in a heartbeat. They'd give their right eye for an assault rifle.

They also really, really shouldn't have assault rifles.

No not all, but religious fundamentalism (mixed in with gun culture) is a bit more prevalent there than in say, Oakland, CA
Right, where there, it's just pure gun culture.

I think Oakland turned our liberal ex Governor, Jerry 'moonbeam' Brown into a "Law and Order" tough on crime politician.

Well-played. :chuckle:

I was wondering when someone would say something along these lines.

Well when you read some posts in FYM, the even becomes completely necessary.

As for me, my church performed a complete virtual lobotomy on me ages ago. So now I just go around babbling (incoherently) what they have programmed in.

The proportion of believers decreases with increasing brackets of intelligence, does that mean that all believers are dumber than nonbelievers?

A: No
