    I have a couple friends from college that still live up there- saw this on Facebook yesterday. Unfortunately this is the reality of the world we live in. I brought my 3 kids to a parade yesterday and more than once I thought of an 'escape plan' in case some idiot decided to do something stupid.

    what do criminals have to fear if they are going to get a roof over there head a bed to sleep in 3 hot meals a day so what makes any difference if they get in trouble for crimes they do. as far as shooting, everybody wants to blame the guns so lets ban all the guns then no well get shot i mean after all its worked so well with keeping drugs off our streets. you have these people out there saying criminals have rights too so you cant do public executions anymore cuz its cruel but yet it wasnt cruel for someone to open fire at a parade thats what is has to do with

    Then you should live in some 3rd world country...i think you'd be happier there. Tired of these "lets execute them in public" comments. Dont you people realize how backwards that makes you sound?

    Shots on the 4th is normal around here. They have to remind people that it's illegal to fire your guns in the air within city limits. :roll:

    I grew up in a third world country, and frankly, no matter what punishment you dole out, crime will still exist.

    Yes. Let's go back to the (arguable) dark ages. Everything was so amazing then.

    Gunshots are just a normal everyday part of the 4th around here. Kinda amazing that when you get several hundred folks together with guns that nobody gets hurt. Of course the liberals usually need a shower after it's all said and done.They usually smell like shit.

    not to mention the bullshit that plops out of there mouth every time they open it.....

    Thanks Yote I like your reply to this.

    But also gun safety is a must knowing where and when its ok to discharge your firearms is one of the most important things to get through to folks yet there are many that give responsible gun owners a bad name.

    I don't know about other areas of the country. But it seems that around here, the more responsible owners carry, the less trouble we have from irresponsible folks. Of course it is a small coal mining town in south central Tenn. where everybody grows up hunting and fishing.

    As far as the violent criminals go. If they have been convicted of murder, rape, child abuse, or pedophilia. I say hang em from the gallows within 30 days of being found guilty. Let thieves turn big rocks into little rocks using sledge hammers, for 18 hours a day to earn their meals and cot.Don't work , don't eat. If they starve, so be it.
    No excuse for criminals to have a better life in prison on the taxpayers dime than a hard working man can give his family through sweat and tears.

    Sadly per the Geneva Convention agreements on prisoner treatment when coming to executions hanging has been deemed Inhumane. As well as firing squad electrocution and a few other brilliant ways of taking care of our lesser desirable citizens that commit heinous crimes such as you stated.

    The Geneva Conventions strictly enforce the treatment of prisoners in a wartime environment. People that are arrested in our country on a daily basis have no protections under the GC, I'm sure there are more restrictions in the local and federal laws regarding treatment.
