    It’s sad that this is what happened. Kelly is a very nice person but went off the straight path. I agree she needs rehab bit also needs to be punished for what she did. Will be praying for her and her family.

    Hello fellow net-citizens, it’s your friend Archie Bean here. This senseless violence against Asian minorities could have been prevented if our government had banned all guns! There’s no way a criminal would attempt to commit a crime with out one, they wouldn’t use a knife, a baseball bat or any other item capable of inflicting harm. Its so simple, no guns = no crime. I wish these people in NEPA could get that through their thick heads. The second amendment needs to be abolished, giving guns to our bureaucratic government and over-zealous police state that will fire five rounds from his assault-rifle into the back of a drunk man crawling towards them. We need to protect the American citizens from themselves! Think of the children! If banning guns saves one life than it would be worth it!

        I do believe there is a distinction between Archie Beal you know and love so well and this Archie Bean fellow, perhaps you ought to re-read Bean’s comment? The amount of sarcasm is so much its dripping down my screen

        I think they are one and the same cuz Archie Beal has the same sarcasm. I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure they are one and the same. Any way, Merry Christmas Roland to you and ur family!
