Dinosaur: Book Review :: Celebrity Dinosaurs

Tyrannosaurus rex – “Tyrant Lizard King” – even the name’s impressive. When the T-Rex was first given his title, he was the largest land predator ever discovered. With his hugely powerful head and enormous, razor-sharp teeth, he soon became one of the most popular and easily recognized dinosaurs. And even though much larger carnivorous dinosaurs have been discovered since, T-rex continues to enjoy celebrity status.

    Neither Clinton nor Obama can rid of our rights to guns. It's against the second amendment, and a terrible thing to do overall for reasons that probably don't need explaining. However, we do need to monitor who we do and don't give weapons to. As you said, it's not the gun that harms others. It's the people.

    I have too low an expectation of society for them to recognize something as right or wrong, and base their disapproval on the issue and not the people backing it.
