Yes, I am obsessed with violence and politics, and no, I don't plan on killing/harming any govt. officials. Anyway, I was thinking, such great men as JFK, Martin Luther King, Theodore Roosevelt, Robert Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln etc. were either killed or had attempts on their lives, these guys are the kinds of people who go down in history as great men, with pretty much everyone agreeing that they were great, regardless of skin color/party affiliation etc. What strikes me as curious isn't that such great men were killed or someone tried to kill them for political reasons, but that (as far as I can tell, maybe I'm just missing something), no president has had an attempt on their life go as far as a guy shooting at them since that nutjob who shot Reagan. And it's not like he did it because he thought Reagan was a bad president or had some anti-Reagan agenda, it was because he was trying to impress Jodie Foster. Does anyone have any idea as to why Americans seem to have calmed down as far as trying to kill national leaders they don't agree with? On a semi-related note, wouldn't it be ironic if some guy went out and legally bought an UZI or AK-47 in a few days when the assault weapons ban lapses, and used it to assasinate some Republican Senator who voted against it?
