  1. We get it Mike, you don't like guns. Can we move on yet? You probably hate God also. Funny, when someone breaks into your house, the first thing you will do is call 911 asking for people with guns to come defend you, all the while praying to God that they get there in time. Get over yourself and move on to another story already. Four days in a row is getting a little old.

  2. On a typical day in America, 33 people are murdered by people with guns, and 50 die in gun-related suicides. It's sad, but sometimes a person's life is part of the price that America has to pay for having the greatest Constitution in the world! The 2nd Amendment, the RIGHT to bear arms, must be protected to insure the future of America! Do NOT let the Government and that guy obama take our guns! Protect your gun rights! This is America! This IS America!

    Tomorrow's cartoon will move on to a new subject. It's rare that I would pen several cartoons in a row about one subject, but this event was so tragic that it justified several days of commentary. Thank you for reading and I do enjoy the comments.

  4. NOBODY allowed this! Wow, what is the mental state of someone who writes comics that suggest his fellow countrymen approve of such a horrible act? This is a time of mourning and reflection, chill your jets on your personal agendas Mike.

  5. UnmuffledSpeech:

    Editorial cartooning is the expression of an opinion. It is not an objective art form. An objective cartoon would make no point. You can call it an agenda, but it's simply opinion.
