Let’s see, the US, which has almost no guns laws outside of the old union states, has a firearm death rate in 2010 of 4.7 per 100,000. Here in the Confederacy the rate is much higher. Meanwhile remember those crazy Japanese? The ones that use to run right at our machineguns? They have a death rate of .32 per 100,000,or 13 times lower than the US rate.
I wonder why? Do you think it has to due with the guns laws they have there, some of the toughest in the world. The only Japanese handguns in private hands belong to Olympics team members. It’s time to drop the phony nonsense about the second Amendment and understand this. There are a large number of sick punks, semi-tough wise a-holes in this country, and especially Arizona, that hide behind the second amendment so that they can own guns, why? Because they think it makes them a “man”. When I was younger I did the same thing, but now that I’m a little wiser, I have turned in my weapons. I just lived through too many Auroras, and Tucsons and I can’t be silent anymore. Tell you congressmen you don’t what him to take any more of the NRA’s blood money, and to vote to protect our citizens from the sick clowns who have to own a Glock, to be a man. If the shoe fits, wear it.

Boy Leon, you are so right.I don't want anyone to tell me how my use my 2nd admendment rights. So I guess only 74% of all murders are by guns. What a relief. I think I will mention that at the next NRA, I mean teaparty, meeting I go to. I bet those Muslins who are influencing our govt. are behind this. You know Leon, you just can't be safe enough. That why here in Ariozna I carry 6 or 7 guns are all times. I carry more but, they are so heavy I can't walk very far when I do. You know Leon, we need more educated, right thinking people like you to defend our right to bears arms, why you never know when we will have to go to war against somebody. Can't count on the army fo help, to many gays there, I'm sure they can't fight like real men like us!

Guess you guys have never been to a bad accident. You know, ones with bodies in pieces, and people with no faces. I think I meet you guys, your the ones tailgating me on the 202 when I'm doing 75 and you don't have the balls to go into the HOV lane. Did you know AZ has some of the best weather an one of the highest highway death rates in the nation? Why? I'm sorry, I forgot. Your rites!" Yes, old Robert E.Lee would be proud of you. Your "rites" are more important than the lives of your victims. Makes sense, this is Arizona.May 2, 2012
Let see, aren't these some of the same people who think if we were all carry sub machine guns, it would cut down on the murder rate? Think that would have helped the four victims in Chandler today? Voting money for their friends, and themselves. Where is the right- wing outrage? You guessed it, they're too busy down at the gun store loading up.May 2, 2012
Mr. Aperson, you have it correct. 7th and 8th grade girls run most of these so called middle schools. Male teachers stupid enough to work in them need at least 2 million dollars in insurance just to make sure they don;t lose their entire life savings. Because no one on channel 12 wants to hear the story of how one of these criminals lost their jobs. It goes on and on. Parent and School officals have no interest in finding the truth. it is much more profitable to sue the dstrict after making these charges than finding the truth. And for the wessel adminstriators it is much easlier to fire the teacher without any real proof to cover their butts. And for the 13 year old girl who doesn't like her teacher? Tell the school district he looked at her the wrong way. he will be gone in a week. This is not something I dearmed up. I taught in Valley school for 5 years. This is what happens. Why anyone would want to be a male teacher in this world, it is crazy. But males, especially white males, have no protection under current law. The law is a fool and always be one. Meanwhile innocent people are ruined and crooks steal millions of taxpayer dollars, and the public think you have gotten justice. No, you just been taken by another Arizona con-man. Nov 18, 2011
As a former teacher in this district I can tell you the problem this is very simple, school administrators are so in fear of parents they discipline and write up teachers who have any type of classroom problems. They take the side of students almost 100 percent of the time because they fear for their own jobs. This is a common problem in Arizona as administrators and teachers are fired every year due to budget cuts and they all know they have no type of union to support them in any way. Simple, no support of any type from either side makes them into, not teachers, but politcians who's constitutes are 13 year olds. That is the real story. In most suburban districts a simple complaint aganist a teacher, especially a male, can get them fired. Thank God I don't have to do that anymore. If you want better results in Arizona support the teacher and stop crucifying them, give them a system of defence.Nov 10, 2011
Not a bad idea truthseeker. I'm sure most of them are sick of looking for jobs that simply don't exist. Maybe Brewer should have sent any of the able body out to the fire. I'm sure many would have agreed to go. The GOP, or more correctly, the Dixecrat party, has reacted with their normal anti-people position. Thousands of those layed off were directly layed off due to their votes. Why does anyone think they would have mercy on the very people they forced out of work?Jun 8, 2011
Here are more laws passed by the clowns in Phoenix which are clearly unconstitutional. When are the people in Arizona going to wakeup and understand these bills are nothing more than grandstand moves to convince the far right they are doing something when it fact they are wasting time, and money. I have to go back and review history, but this sounds like the Nazi playbook of 1934-1935, as far as union busting is concerned.
Still crying about the loss of those good paying middle class jobs? Your GOP buddies put them in China for $4.25 a DAY. Free trade equals billions for the north Scottsdale set. Oh, by the way, the state is trying to limit and reduce unemployment payments, already one of the lowest in the Nation. I wonder who is supporting that? But you know what, I'm happy because I might be able to carry a firearm into a classroom in the future. Do you have to wonder why people regard this place as a joke!

This is one of the greaest t human interest story I have ever heard, Thanks to our President for understanding how important it is to the Giffords family. Now, I hope he will consider flying the shuttles until one of our private firms is ready to replace them. Which will be about a year, I understand.Apr 20, 2011
Another black eye for the cowboys. Arizona, first in guns, last in education. You should have watched the PBS special on the NCAA tonight. With that kind of money being ginned up what did you expect? Watch the pros, stop watching that corupt nonsense. No money for education, but plenty for the final four. Get ready to join the third worldMar 29, 2011
