"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Gonna have to explain it to me....

Jimmie Lee Dykes had guns and, by all accounts, was acting "crazy" for some time before he kidnapped a 5 year old boy and hid in his bunker for 7 days.

It was an acceptable, even proper, government function to shoot Mr. Dyke for his "crazy" behavior.  It was not an acceptable, or apparently proper, government function to take Mr. Dyke's guns away because he was acting "crazy" before the kidnapping.

For the life of me, I don't understand why this is, except 2nd Amendment and this is what the Founding Fathers intended and we are not allowed to change it ever, or the heavens will fall, and tyranny will rule the land.

The tyranny of the crazy is not tyranny, however.  Somehow.
