A dangling participle modifies the wrong noun. It is not grammatically linked to the word it is intended to modify. If you don't know the definition of modify, use a dictionary!
Joe Manchin complained that the Buckwild [show] presented West Virginians in a negative image. Then, publicity hog Joe appears on the Morning Joe MSNBC show and says that he is opposed to assault-type weapons. ... Then he says that the rifle he is shown shooting at the cap and trade bill with is a one-shot gun. It is a bolt-action rifle that is capable of holding three or four cartridges. Joe Manchin is a phony.
Can anybody explain what kind of law or restrictions regarding gun ownership could have prevented the senseless slaughter at Sandy Hook?
Joe, I said I would never vote for you, but if you can do anything about this rampant, out-of-control gun use, then you got me for life.
Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham showed continual outrage for weeks for the four Americans who died in Benghazi. So where is their outrage for the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary?
Anytime there is a vacuum, something rushes in to fill it. Pushing God out of public institutions leaves a moral vacuum in which evil rushes in to fill. We can make all the excuses, cast all the blame on guns, negligent parents, mental disorders and anything else one can think of. But evil will remain until we, as a society, return to God through His Son, Jesus.
There are a lot of politicians, both past and present, who have blood on their hands each time someone is gunned down with an assault rifle. There is absolutely no reason the sale of these killing machines should ever have been allowed. Stopping their sale now will do little to halt the cycle of endless killings. They already saturate our nation and aren't going away.
I know that the solution to preventing these mass shootings is a complex one. But I, for one, am willing to waive my right to a semiautomatic weapon and 30-round clips if it could possibly save one child's life. I feel that the risk of having these weapons in our society is far greater that any possible recreational benefit they provide. It seems like common sense to me.
I have had enough of people who care more about their guns than they do the lives of children.
Every politician that lets the NRA get everything they want for fear of losing the election should see all these little victims every time they look in the mirror. They are the reason we read about these shootings every day, because they let anybody buy these military assault weapons.
