Actually he is right. When legal gun ownership goes up, gun crimes go down. This statistic has been proved in many major cities across America without exception. Its even proven in gun friendly states. The flip side also shows in cities where legal gun ownership is denied, gun crimes are rising......

It is folks like Mr. Pratt that truly show how vastly diverse the thought spectrum is in these United States.

Rick, what exactly about those photos do you find amusing? The fact that they are reciting The Pledge of Allegiance?

Looks obvious to me and apparently to someone else since they agreed.

I don't always read the comments before I post my own two cents worth but in this case I did.

My intention was to comment on the photos but I see that others already have, and they see what I see.

So, yeah.

There you have it.

Jerry and Rick, just assume I'm slow and clue me in what you find so obvious/amusing in these photos in relation to this article.

I cannot believe that some commenting on this site are making fun of the local people in the photo. Is this Junior High School???? Grow up and move on with your lives.

It is simply a shame that this is what America has come to. These people are exactly what is wrong with this country! They want what they want regardless of facts or reality. They could not care less for anyone besides their own self gratification. They have made decisions long ago based on little fact and they will support that decision until we pry their guns from their cold dead hands. And the Sun Gazette will report on this foolishness every time. Why can't we just marginalize these people like they deserve and move on as a country?

I'm not in any way making fun of the people in the photo.

This article discussed a view point and political agenda that, rightly or wrongly so, is typically stereotyped to older, white people. The photo mirrored that stereotype.

That's what I noticed.

Perhaps the photos were representative of the people in the room, perhaps not. Maybe someone who was there could comment and tell us if there were younger people there that did not make the paper.

That is what I noticed also Jerry and the second photo shows very few there.
