    Did Colorado shooter single out Cinemark theater because it banned guns?

    Gun laws only protect Criminals. So banning Guns anywhere sets a filter...filtering out all the good law abiding citizens who open carry, and allowing in anyone who wants to break the rules/laws in.. Then again, this is why the TSA is starting to go to places such as Malls, Football games...

    DC Comics Reboot

    I think the reason why the SM&WW connection was such a big deal this time is because of the Continuty, this time...and the reason why Superman renounced his Citizenship thing got headlines because SM has always been seen as Truth, Justice and the American Way...Classic...and it was a major...

    DC Comics Reboot

    But really this is the first time that Superman and Wonder Woman are an actual couple in the Continutiy...sure they got together in Kingdom Come, and a few other alternate worlds...but never in the mainstream world...that is why this is such a big deal.

    Your right...they do have the right to restrict guns, they own the place...but when you infringe on constitutional rights, and people get hurt....you get Sued. Tis the American Way.

    The Templars are also another off shoot of regular Masonry, they are however seen as regular by the Grand Lodge, however, you can not just believe in a Higher Power, you have to be a Christian to Join them.

    Freemasonry

    I have spoken with my Priest, and he told me that the only reason why the Catholic church has any issues today with masonry is simply political...and that if I feel that I am going against God's will in any way, then I should remove myself from the Fraternity...but at no time since I have joined...

    Freemasonry

    I myself am a Fellowcraft Mason, and I am also Catholic. The Church looks down on it, but they don't crack down on it at all...Masonry welcomes all Monotheistic Religions. One of the Rules is, you must believe in a higher power. To become a Mason, all you have to do is ask one, to be...

    DC Comics Reboot

    Well it has for a good reason... Comics are now considered a specialty...so in order to keeps sales up, they have to keep up with the times...and that's really rough to do in a monthly book.

    The Future of Ryu-Te?

    Like I said, the only affiliation I have is though who my instructors Sensei was... Although I would love to join the Ryu-te Organization, but I live in Louisville Kentucky, a literal Dead zone for Ryu-te, not a single dojo within 100 miles of me.

    Those were my thoughts exactly... Just beacuse there are anti-Gun laws doesn't mean that the bad guys are going to follow said laws.

    they just never put Lois and Clark together as a couple...Lois has been seeing someone else for a few years, and I even think that she is engaged to him...or at least living together.

    I have been away from MT for a little bit. My instructor called me the morning before we got the news that he had passed away.... Oddly he asked me if I have had any weird dreams lately...and weirdly enough, I had one about Oyata. Later that night, we knew it must have been a sign or...
