    Try not to grave-dance. It’s a great day for the gun industry. Enjoy your victory and have some respect for the dead.

    No, you're thinking of Mr. Rogers. The real Jesus smokes cigars, drives an SUV, carries an AR-15, and runs over gays, illegal immigrants and endangered species if he doesn't shoot them first.

    I'm sure if everyone had a gun in Nevada, he would have stopped.

    Yes, because it's so easy to take out a shooter who is hundreds of yards away and dozens of stories off the ground.

    Sure, and if they brought guns to the mosque for protection, you’d be screeching that they’re a violent religion because they’re bringing weapons to their house of worship.

    Ever notice that whenever someone insists the world should follow a certain deity, they always just happen to be followers of said deity?

    Coincidence, I’m sure.

    I'm sure my concealed handgun would have taken out the guy with the assault rifle. All I need to do is get 15 feet from him/her.

    He also couldn’t hit a curveball.

    I'm sure the first responders would have known I was the good guy with a gun. My shooting at the bad would help them and not slow them down in any way.

    I support the police by trying my best not to shoot them with my own gun in a confusing situation.

    Surprised the guy just didn’t join the US Army. You get to kill brown civilians with impunity and everyone has to cheer you at sporting events.

    Unfortunately, like many other enlightened nations, NZ has abolished the death penalty.
