  • I think it shows that man-kind would rather kill one another than put a hand out to them.
    It is sad.

  • Sorry to get intellectual with this one but that is only partly true. That would all depend on why the men were holding the guns. I don't know anyone who thinks killing is right or good.Only a sick person would.
    If your speaking in terms of just the fact that we see no wrong in having guns in our society but many do not want homosexuals, the truth of the statement is closer to correct but here is also nothing wrong with someone thinking homosexuality is wrong. This is America and many people think smoking or bottlefeeding is wrong but we are free to think and discuss it. We all have different opinions on things and there will always be people who think you should feel differently than you do. It's still not wrong to have that opinion. I think it is more wrong to believe, as many do that is is wrong for you to have the opinion you have and so blatantly and fervently try and change anothers opinion.

  • Its true though. I mean, i'd hope they wouldn't kill anyone, but just say...they tried to rob a bank. There'd be more of an uproar i bet if the two men kissed each other while robbing it. People worry about the dumbest things (the gay part, not the gun part.)
