What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Another Shooting Massacre, Another Call for Prayers" and predictable non-responses to the Colorado "movie theater massacre":

"I fear gun control. I fear criminals. I do not fear guns. I don't fear myself, and I do not fear the infinitesimal chance some lunatic will choose my theater to commit mass murder. Those are not rational things to fear, and gun control is not a rational answer to the rampage of a mentally depraved individual. It is reflexive, lazy, and short-sighted." — bighouse

"I'm 100% behind the 2nd Amendment, but to think this tragedy would have been avoided simply by having one moviegoer with a gun is utter stupidity." — Midtown Maven

"Absolutely NOTHING positive or productive will happen as a result of the tragic shootings in Aurora. NOTHING. Just as nothing happened as a result of the shootings in Columbine or Virginia Tech. ... Lobbying groups like the NRA and their political whores in (ironically) the government hold all of the power right now. And these people have decided that the daily carnage of gun violence in this country is an acceptable cost for the right of personal gun ownership. 'Dead children? No problem. We can always make more. AND, we still have our guns!'" — beeswax

"The same crime could have been committed with a baseball bat, bow and arrow, flame thrower, or any number of mechanical devices." — CHG

Comments of the Week:

About "Pigging Out on Riverfront Projects" and our city's seemingly desperate attempts to get things rolling on the river. Haven't we seen this before?

"Hook, line, and Shlenker."

— MichaelC
