    Comes out weeks after the tragedy, still says nothing about the knife attack in PA but is still quick to comment on the first shooting he hears in the news.

    I feel for the Oso folks (especially being 30miles due north of my house) but is there any value in making an effort to protest the devaluing of our rights?

    Because of the respect I have for what the victims, victims families are going through. And for the first responders and emergency personnel I would say no.

    Not the right place for it. You would be no better than those Westboro church tool bags.

    Easily as good an idea as whizzing into the wind while wearing a white suit.
    A wise friend once observed, "Doing the right thing -at the wrong time- can be the same as doing the wrong thing."

    you cant always win the argument by being the nice guy. its important to remember those who try to take our rights away by swaying the minds of others are not so respectful of tragedy. it would be prudent to not do it but you would be doing a good thing if you decided to do it. we dont always want to hear the truth but its always what we need to know. sometimes you have to beat the enemy by playing his own game, i think you should do it. some may be offended but as long as you are making an attempt to keep others from going through the same thing, it is the right thing to do.

    By making yourself look like a fool the cause is made to look foolish, too. This is not complex.

    This. We don't need that kind of publicity.
