Sorry but No. You couldn't be more wrong. Long before religion came to play, marriage was used to help determine distribution of wealth among families of the deceased and for diplomatic purposes among families and foreign nations. All of this was prevalent in ancient societies far before ANY religion played a role in what YOU perceive as marriage. Open your history book pal.

Reasonable, respectful gun owners know how to properly secure their gun, as well as how to respectfuly operate one. My issue is with the cowboy mentality.
It is legal to shoot kids who tries to sell candy to you, because it is illegal to sell food without FDA approve.
I don't pretend to know the whole story based off that small article. Nobody should. I will say that if somebody fires a gun into the air and tells me to get the hell out of there, my next step would certainly not be to roll down the window. There are a couple things about the story I don't understand, which makes me think that isn't the whole story. On the other side of the fence, if there were 4 teenage gangbangers there to rob a 70 year old man, he needs a firearm to defend himself. He wouldn't be able to do it with a baseball bat.
Also, as a rule, we don't send mentally disabled people to prison in this country. You can't call him "A crazy loon!" and then say "I hope he rots in jail." If he is in fact of impaired mental capacity, (A) he shouldn't have had a gun (B) he shouldn't be sent to prison.
There probably should be a subforum for gun control in America. (since everybody living outside the US cares so much about it)
Also, telling people to go read fictional works doesn't support your argument, it just makes you look like you don't have anything to really support it other than fictional works.

Bergtau's Law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability that somebody will mention Godwin's Law approaches 1.
Being stupid and acting stupid are different things. Context matters.
