    Maybe “Wakeup” should Wakeup themselves and read about the 21 students stabbed Friday in a Pennsylvania high school. ” this stuff doesn’t happen with knives” ………Get real!!!!!!!

        Chuck Norris could knock you off of your horse with a knife. Just fyi. And by the way, I don’t think you are doing any good telling people to “wake up”. Cudos for the mantra though.

    But knives slash, maim, kill, and wound the same as a gun. If someone believes that violence is the answer in the resolution they seek then a knife can be as dangerous and as deadly as a gun. And before you say more ppl die by gunfire. The 21 that was slashed, and severely wounded will have to live with that nightmare the rest of their lives. Will probably have to take anti psychotics and anti depressants for the rest of their lives to control their PTSD. No doubt they still have their life and no doubt the mentally strong and the overcomers will come out stronger and something positive will come about for their tragedy, BUT the weak minded, the ones that it is a struggle to overcome (and there will be some) will live with the pain and nightmares of their ordeal. Which to some could be worse than death. Yes, everyone got to love on their loved ones that night, yes everyone got live to see another day but my point is that if violence is the answer you seek then you will find whatever means necessary to release the demons in your head. I don’t even own a gun but I believe that taking away someone’s guns is not the resolution to the problem at hand. I personally believe the ONLY answer is Jesus, but I can promise you taking away guns is not.

      What the hell?!!! Jesus? Who said anything about taking your precious guns away from you Robyn? You people are like babies addicted to your pacifiers.

      The whole knife vs gun debate is STUPID. There is nothing to debate about. The issue is LETHALITY. Knives can be used to hurt people. So can guns. Obviously if you had a rocket launcher, you could hurt more people quicker with it… because it is more lethal. I am typing slowly for you preschoolers, but I don’t think you are getting it. Just because people can be killed with things other than guns, doesn’t mean that it is wrong to have a conversation about the prevalence of guns and gun violence. But it is IMPOSSIBLE to have a conversation with a person that doesn’t understand anything and doesn’t want to understand.

      Jesus wants you to have your guns Robyn. He won’t let anybody take them away from you. Settle down.

        “Who said anything about taking your precious guns away from you Robyn?”

        But that is precisely what this is about, and why Wake Up – and apparently you – obsess over this topic. Guns are dangerous, guns are for killing – no sh– sherlock. We don’t need you and Wake Up patronizing the rest of us as if we’re clueless idiots.

      • Wake Up

        Branko, just because gun deaths are occurring everyday does not mean we are obsessing on this issue. It means it is a real problem since it is happening so often! Pointing out the obvious is not obsessing.

      • Branko Pezdi

        Wake Up:

        1. Pointing out the obvious every day IS obsessing.
        2. What is your point in obsessing over this every day? You libs are skilled at pointing out “problems” all the time, and then proposing government “solutions” to these “problems” and ramming them down everyone’s throats. You have just stated this is a “problem”. Therefore you must have a “solution”, what is it? Or are you just obsessing to assuage your guilt, a typical lib activity?

      • Wake Up

        I have offered solution many times in the past. You are so obsessed with my obsession that you must have overlooked them! If I am pointing out the obvious (that guns are a problem), and you call it obsessing, that must mean that you support gun violence. It is “obvious” from your post that this is true!

      • Branko Pezdi

        A typically smarmy reply from a lib. Your use of tortured logic continues. Since I point out your obsession, therefore I support gun violence. That’s the best you can do? How pathetic; and you’re not even remotely embarrassed by your daily displays of abject ignorance. Even my dog would be embarrassed by such stupid utterances. No, pal, I support the Constitution. Freedom and liberty are hard work, and one of the prices to pay for freedom is the FACT that some individuals are irresponsible. The solution by your ilk is suppression of ALL citizens in order to control the few that are irresponsible, a liberal “solution” that has never worked in practice anyway, and whose logical end result is Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. Enjoy the company you love, because the rest of us will continue to fight your evil.

      • Wake Up

        I prefer the logic and example of how Australia handles this issue. You can not accuse Australia of being Nazi or Soviet.

        As for your hiding behind the Constitution, do you support the freedom for someone to slander you since we have the Constitutional right to “freedom” of speech? Should people have the Constitutional right to yell fire in a crowded theater?

      • Branko Pezdi

        “As for your hiding behind the Constitution, do you support the freedom for someone to slander you since we have the Constitutional right to “freedom” of speech? Should people have the Constitutional right to yell fire in a crowded theater?”

        What the hell do these stupid and irrelevant questions have to do with this topic? They DO illustrate the fact that you know nothing about the Constitution. Surreal weird, but then that is what leftist “dialogue” is, irrationality mixed with loathing of self and other individuals. Again, pathetic, absolutely pathetic.

      • Wake Up

        Branko, you said the following in one of your posts: “No, pal, I support the Constitution. Freedom and liberty are hard work, and one of the prices to pay for freedom is the FACT that some individuals are irresponsible. The solution by your ilk is suppression of ALL citizens in order to control the few that are irresponsible, . . .”

        That statement would (should) also apply to the other things the Constitution says are our rights. You (and your ilk) never complain about the restrictions on 2nd Amendment speech in the name of public safety. My questions only show that you do not use the same purity test for the other parts of the Constitution. If you are confused, it is only because your argument is confusing.

  • Mary Sue Harper

    Judging before you know the whole story is not right! JP is a good person. I know him and his family. Why not wait and hear the whole story first? SMH There are too many judgmental people in this world!

  • cole

    Just a harmless little incident that the lefty’s saw the oppertunity to exploit because a shotgun was involved .

    • Wake Up

      Cole, harmless little incident? I can see that you are not a “lefty,” but I am glad I am not on whatever side you are on!!

    • screw aarp

      Channel 19 always likes a good gun story, it brings out all the far left on their comment forum .

      • Wake Up

        Actually, it brings more far right comments. I only see about three people on my side of the political spectrum on this discussion board. Having said that, considering that you use multiple screen names, it is hard to tell how many individual comments are really made on the right side of the political spectrum.

      • Branko Pezdi

        “Actually, it brings more far right comments”

        Nope. YOUR stupid posts bring out the “far right” comments, not the news articles themselves. As soon as WHNT posts an article, there you are with “another day in gunland”, like a crybaby brat in a kindergarten sandbox. Grow up.

      • WolrdGoneCrazy

        Good point, Screw. How many more people must die in liberal “gun-free” zones – Columbine, Aurora, Newtown, Navy Yard, Ft. Hood, etc, etc, etc – before liberals like “Fake Up” will have enough blood on their hands? Then there’s abortion. Ban all scalpels!

  • tina

    I personally know several facts involving this incident and regardless of the weapon used….DRUGS turns people and their judgment into imbeciles. When you are a druggie then why should you expect your children to do anything besides drugs either. These DRUGGIE parents raised their children with NO MORALS, oh did I mention the 18 yr old druggie too.!

    • K. Rich

      @Tina finally someone to speak the truth. I see these comments about guns when that has nothing to do with it. Drugs has everything to do with it. I don’t know anyone involved but when you hear the story you have to know that drugs and most likely METH is the main reason something like this could happen. Stop making this a gun debate and stand up to the real issue at hand support your local celebrate recovery’s and rehab facilities see how you can get involved to really make a difference in your communities.

      • Wake Up

        An addicted person without a gun is a safer person. The NRA fights everyday to keep, what some on this discussion board call ” a few irresponsible people,” fully armed and dangerous!

      • Dawn

        You absolutely have no clue!!! What gives you the right to get on here and post garbage such as that an accusing a kid of doing meth as the reason behind this!! You have no clue what happened and you need to make sure you have your facts straight before getting on here and throwing you ignorant accusations around!!

    • kisha

  • todd

  • Branden McCutchen

    I am the cousin of one of these and close friend of the other. They and our their families still support their gun rights. If you want to solve problems then invest more money into our roads and steeetlights, then it could have been identified. Also teach gum safety as a mandatory class in schol so people will know to call out before blindly firing.

  • kay

    sorry it happened to the kids all 3 hope the 2 kids get well soon . but we were at a funeral the weekend and when we got back we found a name tag belong to a person in Albertville in our yard they were massing around my home these day you have to watch for everybody you cant trust anyone any more we live across the field were the kids were shot. what would you do ?

  • Branden McCutchen

    Tina JP’s grandparents are good people and as far as I know his parents are. Thanks gor your comment but we could do without your hateful ended remarks.

    I would also like to make it clear they were on their own land near thr property line and when the horses went crazy they got throwed near their yard.

  • Jim M

    Sounds like someone was a little trigger happy. Shooting people off horses..Would of been nice to hear more details of this story. Ref all the gun comments. Guns are a major problem in our country and we glorify guns all throughout US Society. That is the real problem. We need to be more responsible with what is allowed and what is not allowed in regards to weapons. I shudder when I see all these military style weapons that are for sale just about anywhere at gun shows and how easily they are aquired.
    Pawn shops and even at Walmart they have military styled weapons. What ever happened to buying a 30 06 or a Remington 1100 shotgun or a double barreled shotgun for hunting or a pistol for protection. Now we have the option of purchasing various military styled weapons AR-15’s, AK-47 styled with 100 round barrel clips and bannana clips, etc..Wow wouldnt want to run out of ammo during a shoot out I suppose.. .I grew up hunting and served in the military during wartime and I think military styled/grade weapons should not be in the public sector. If you like them join the military and get lots of chances to fire them in real time. See what those types of weapons do. They are not for the average Joe to run around and deer hunt with..

  • soldier

    don,t get put on the news if you don’t want people talking about what they know nothing about. you put yourselves out to the condemnation that you get on here so its simple…behave yourselves and live a peaceful life otherwise deal with the judgement.

  • Branden McCutchen

    Uhm hello Mr. Dude but I’m not sure if you know how to read. But “authorities say” both of them would rather not be on the news. But they’lk both, yes my cousin and my friend that got shot, read this and see to society they’re not a thing but an example and a statistic. Maybe you ought to consider that.

  • YaKnowWhatMakesMeSick

    what does your son being bi racial have to do with this story? That makes zero sense…You say he wants them band” as well hilarious……I think the problem here is maybe the cowboys didnt have their guns with them.Yeah thats it then maybe news title would be “cowboys narrowly avoided ambush in Asbury” bushwhacked the bushwhacker…lol Earl Pitts American…
