Has it really been 12 years since the OKC bombing?

    First, not a guy.
    Second, I'm a photographer, and we're commonly called "shooters."
    Third, I remember where I was, what I was doing, and how it sounded when McVeigh killed people in my hometown, and I don't think it's too much to ask for a little civility.

    All of these things that have happened over the years are terrible. But one question for all of you: Do you feel any safer, knowing all the knowledge that those who are supposed to protect you have or have not learned, after all said tragedies?

    Depends on where you live.

    We (used to) ban AR-15's and AKs because they have a pistol grip and are "mean" looking. Yet a foreign national with a green card and a kook rap sheet longer than Hinckley's can buy a freaking Glock.

    I was 9 when this happened, so I don't remember much. All I remember is asking my grandparents why someone would want to do something like that.

    And the song Garth Brooks came out about it still gets to me every time I hear it.

    Shooter is a mean-spirited and hateful word used by the NRA. You should be ashamed.

    Moron and troll are mean-spirited, hurtful and hateful words. You are clearly a bigotted hate monger. You should be fired.

    Jesus, would you please stop shitting on each and every thread you post on? Do you enjoy acting like a spoiled 12-year-old?

    Grow up and act like an adult. Maybe then we wouldn't all think you're a troll.

    While I generally favor the death penalty, I do think it was a mistake to execute Timothy McVeigh. He's the one person who, I assume, knows what really happened that day.

    And I hope it doesn't transport me into Art Bell territory to say that I still don't think we have the straight story.
