    I really look forward to this segment. I am absolutely sick and tired of the gun story. Please drop the gun issue and talk about why we arent doing more for the mentally ill. PLease, please, please no more gun stories (shows). I wont watch.

    How come the republicans are so outraged about 4 Americans being killed in Bengazi but show no outrage over the 26 Americans being killed in Newton Connecticut. They are always so upset about people being politically correct, but isn't this an example of them being politically correct for their gun lobbyist.

      a little poem you might appreciate Thanks to the NRA, if the truth be told, I can take my assault weapon everywhere I go. I'm not too smart, don't give a fart, don't have a heart, but as long as I think killing is fun, I'll have my gun. I may have mental issues, and crazy I sometimes go, but I can buy a gun no matter how many wild seeds I've sown. My gun is part of me, like bad breathe and parts you can not see, so I just want to say, Thank you NRA for making my day.

    When will the Republicans question George Bush in Congress because WE the people of United State were not satisfied by him and his lies. Where is the WMD our service men and women died for?
    Why is Bush not being tried for War crimes in Hague?
