  1. Praise the Lord for media members like Bob Woodward. While considered one of the liberal media, he is a reporter and an investigator. He has been chastised by many of his fellow liberal members of the media by dare questioning our President and his team. The "media darlings" that worship any president including our present one should take a lesson. Lieing to produce an effect was chastised against President Bush, yet President Obama continues to get a get out of jail free card.

    To your and many of the anti-gun advocates there is two sides to the stories. Mr. Pianist I respect you, yet you seem to be following the media darling prospect in pulling the guns out of Amercan's hands. Emotion needs to be pulled out of the discussion and arrive at legitimate prospective guides that address the days of present weapons vs. those that existed when the Constitution was written.

    As for number of gun deaths, do you also include gang warfare such as in Chicago, do you include illegal immigrant violence, do you address the involvement of drugs in our communities, do you address the lack of chidren growing up with both their parents, and do you deal making all our people working instead of living off welfare?

    Praise Bob Woodward for doing what Washington can not do. Work and report bipartisanly!
