    You are more then welcome. It always amazes me that people are too obtuse to realize that illegal six gun numbers rise in direct proportion to the number of legal six guns floating around

    Just another day in the Triangle. Bang bang bang...it's just so common it barely makes a headline. Instead, the headlines are: "Choose Life license plate is unconstitutional" and "no turkey abuse found at Butterball."

    It's a pathetic state of affairs with the prevalence of shootings around here.

    The reason we are here is to learn to control our emotions the right way. Not with materialistic happiness but by using the love and joy and understanding within us.

    Love is acceptance, accept your fellow man without judgment for judgment is only a sign that you expect a person to be just like you and that is not the case.

    We are all one but each on different journeys to learn and this chapter ID learning to control our emotions which is why we are dealt the bad hard times and the way most act you have a long way to grow. For money a fancy home nice car and hundreds of friends do not make you a better person.

    I wonder if the shooter bought his six shooter at the flea market or just happened to have a few laying around.

    Just like in Wake Forest, the suspect was just inspecting a handgun. No charges will be filed.
