    Me and Lieutenant Dan served with Archie, tunnel rats we were. I have found memories of ice cream night. Poor Bubba though…

    Omg, I was just reading that Archie was a baby killer? Now I have even more disrespect for him. My father is a Nam vet too and he is nothing more than a dysfunctional, multiple dui offender, that beat my mom and should have died on the jungle floor.

    “take a look at the caliber of people I am dealing with” <<< says the guy that wants to tear up the Constitution and the Amendments.

  • Archie Beal

    Duh, perhaps you should get your facts straight. The first draft was late 1968. I see we have a history major amongst us. But then again take a look at the caliber of people I am dealing with

      Hey guys, lay off Archie. He and I fought side by side in the trenches of the war to end all wars, then it was off to take out that evil Darth Vader and his Death Star. I’m Brian Williams, and I approve this message.

      Google is your friend: “On December 1, 1969, the first draft lottery since 1942 began” It’s OK Archie, you’ve had it rough – being a POW and everything. There’s no shame in admitting that your memory isn’t the best any more, those camps can be brutal, can change a man. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go polish my Bronze Star, Congressional Medal of Honor, Purple Heart, and Bozo button.

    Again I didn’t choose to go to Viet Nam. I was drafted and forced to go to war or jail. I proudly served my country. Yes it was a foreign war. How many wars other than the revolutionary and civil have been fought on our soil. Get a clue. You loser people love to complain. I am willing to bet the majority of you jokers don’t work and haven’t seen any combat time other than what you play on your silly computer systems. But you will scream the loudest. Probably also have criminal records that would make you exempt from even possessing a firearm. You people need to run along before I spank all you all some more.

    • duh

      You said you served from 68-70, but you were drafted. The first draft for Vietnam was in 1969. Do you dress up in fatigues on Veteran’s Day so you can get a free meal at Perkins too? “You loser people love to complain.” Umm, we’re not the ones trying to repeal amendments to the Constitution that you allegedly fought to preserve. I think you’re the one that’s been getting spanked here, but, OK, if you say so. If you’re going to make things up at least do your homework a little better. Ever hear of a thing called stolen valor?

  • Archie Beal

    I say rewrite the 2nd and 4th ammendment. Immediately and you will see change. We need to start somewhere

  • Archie Beal

    John Williams I really don’t need to entertain you thoughts and views. These are my views and beliefs and personally I do not care where your father spent his time. I also did my time with the 25th tropical lightning battalion in Viet Nam 68-70. I highly doubt you did any time other than the Salvation Army. So with that being said I dam well earned my right to speak my mind and present my views. You don’t have to like it. Just run along spewing your rhetoric and nonsense young boy.

    • archie is a jughead

      “I dam well earned my right to speak my mind and present my views.” Wrong. Serving in the military in a foreign war does not give you that right, the First Amendment does. It’s a right afforded to EVERY American, as well as the 2nd and 4th that you so flippantly despise. They are foundational and not mutually exclusive. Take one away, the rest will soon follow.

      So you didn’t have any problems going to someone else’s country to kill people in a war that we had no business being in, but you have a problem with people defending themselves hear in the USA. Big tough guy fighting in a country where most of the people didn’t even have shoes. Imagine if they were all armed like we are here in the USA – wouldn’t be so tough then would you knowing that almost every household could protect themselves from baby killers like yourself.

  • john williams

    Hey Archie- my father, God rest his soul, spent 2 years vacationing in Europe with the 318th Tank Destroyer Batallion from 1943 to 1945, to oust the tyrants of Europe who did EXACTLY what you are proposing. What idiots like you will never understand is there are MILLIONS of us Patriots who would rather DIE as free men, standing on our feet, than to live and lick the boots of the socialists, communists, progressives and their ilk. Like Teddy Roosevelt said ” far better be it to have tried and lost, than to take shelter with those poor timid souls who know neither victory or defeat”
    Maybe you should go live in the UK or France, I’m sure the US will be bailing their butts out for a third time sometime within the next 25 years or so at the rate its going.

    Firearms can and will be collected as they are found. Ban them completely. When they the law enforcement and military personnel find you with them they will be confiscated and the person in possession will be arrested. Not a difficult concept. I never said this will be easy nor a quick process. We sure as hell have to implement some sort of measures, because what we have now is certainly not working and only getting worse by the day. As far as abortions, I am not in favor, however that is a person’s choice that has no bearing on me or my family. Their choice to abort a pregnancy has no effect on me in any way. So I really don’t care. Automobile deaths they are going to happen, they always do but they are quite preventable. More often than not people killed in car accidents do it to themselves and are to blame due to their driving habits. So again I really have no remorse for them. Bottom line is you are grasping at straws and trying to compare apples to oranges. Quit your whining and realize we as a country have a problem and firearms are the root of it. The gun violence needs to cease. Everyone with a gun is a tuff guy. They are abusing this privilege and this mentality needs to be quelled. If I have to pay more taxes to attain this goal, so be it. I am willing to pay to shut up people like yourselves.

      Meanwhile, radical Islamic terrorists prove nearly everyday that firearms aren’t needed to inflict death and destruction on a massive scale. 9/11 was 19 guys with box cutters, that’s all. The first attempt to blow up the WTC was a rental truck, fuel oil, and fertilizer.

      Isn’t it true that Hitler had guns outlawed and picked up? How’d that work out?

    • go away silly little man

      I was going to take the time to post a witty, fact filled rebuttal to every bit of rhetoric and nonsense you spew – but it’s obvious you can’t be reasoned with – and chances are you’re as much a fanatical lunatic as the Congressional shooter. You don’t care about death from abortion or accidents but you rave on about guns. Right… So, I’ll keep it simple: Guns aren’t going away, but you should. Buh-bye!

    • pot smoker

      As soon as the GUN FREE ZONE in Chicago works people will start listening to you , Till then see I that your so far off, that you can”t find your way back to reality .

    • In a galaxy far far away

      You mean like all the illegal firearms that the criminals have….how’s that working??? I guess people like you forgot to tell the drug dealers that they are not allowed to have Guns! In case you haven’t noticed…they don’t Care! They will kill you anyway if you interfere with their business. Maybe nobody asked them really nice to stop! We have lost the war on Drugs mostly because of our bleeding heart liberal court System!

  • Archie Beal

    Another shooting, how many more do we need to see or hear about locally or somewhere in the United States before action is taken. Repeal and rewrite the 2nd ammendment immediately. It is obvious the situation is out of control and the pro gun advocates cannot deny it. Ban firearms and the violence will subside dramatically. Leave the firearms to law enforcement and military personnel. This is disgusting and ridiculous already.

    • go away silly little man

      And yet over 1,000 babies are murdered in the USA every day and I don’t hear you whining about that. How about automobile deaths? So – how do you propose to round up over 300 million firearms? Who is going to do it? Imagine the resources involved – are you ready to pay more in your taxes to pay for it? Who will prevent the criminals from hiding their firearms? You really are a special kind of stupid. You are disgusting and ridiculous, move somewhere draconian that aligns with your ideals. The only thing that is out of hand is criminals. And whiners like you.

    • WarningFakeNews

      What a great idea! We’ll have the criminals turn in their guns, we could use the honor system for that. Better yet, we can have The Easter Bunny collect them while making his rounds so they don’t have to go out of their way to turn them in!

      The second amendment isn’t about hunting or target practice, and it isn’t really about keeping ourselves safe from criminals- it is to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government. That need is only getting greater as government tries to incrementally reach its tentacles deeper and deeper into our lives and usurp our freedom.
