I'd just like to make a point here. Why is it, that anytime a shooting becomes glamourized and sensationalized by our media, people come out in troves playing moral crusader and using "the innocent" as the justification for how "we need gun laws!"


The word is 'droves'.


got anything else or just spelling attacks?

To the rest...yeah no offense, while I am actually a supporter of gun rights, there is just as much intensity from pro-gun folks too. As soon as a shooting occurs, one side yells "omg my guns!" and it isn't just because we're "under attack." We've heard so many different so-called attacks and yet here we are still with our guns and getting CCW in Illinois (a very liberal state thanks to Chicago)

So again no offense intended to my own side of the debate, but it sounds so whiney and selfish after people just died

as far as the anti-gun side goes, taking away all weapons won't solve the problem...plain and simple

What spelling attack?

"Troves" was spelled correctly.

It didn't make any sense, but it was spelled correctly.

After the error was quoted and repeated by another poster I felt it appropriate to correct the mistake.

It was not an "attack" in any way, shape or form.

Your accusation, for what it's worth, may be construed as an "attack".

A "trove" is a store of valuable or delightful things.

A "drove" is a herd of animals.

Deny ignorance.
