Sad that those died were there to protect who were protesting against them. We have to stop the violence, taking guns away from law abiding citizens isn’t going to work, the bad guys can get guns on the streets. Remember when you wanted a cookie or piece of candy when you were a kid? You did a few things to get them – went behind the parents’ backs and just took it, visited a neighbor or relative and they gave you one, you traded for one, you took your precious savings and bought it at the store yourself, you asked your siblings to share or get one for you. I know I did. I left out robbed anyone by force/harm or stole it from a store or someone’s home since that was never, ever an option. I wanted the cookie or candy, but it had to be harmless way. The point is there is always those who want something so bad they will steal it or buy it on the street no matter what the law is for restricting them from buying. Maybe adding the mental aspect of the law would be good, but will it really? You never know what is in a person’s mind.

Director Martin Scorsese recently told Agence France-Presse that he was “constantly discouraged” from making his newest film, Silence. He added that “three or four great actors” rejected casting offers because they could not “put themselves” in the position of Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan. The self-professed “lapsed Catholic” should consider those obstacles a blessing in disguise, given […]
“Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr. Private Manning’s actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange by leaking 750,000 documents to WikiLeaks.” — Mike Pence
Pres. Obama has, as part of his final pardons, commuted the sentence of convicted traitor and data-leaker Chelsea Manning from 35 years to 5 more months in prison. Was this mercy a good move, or does it legitimize treason and weaken our national security? Vote now in our CBC reader poll!
