that or a beer keg up his ass. New party game, spin the Bono [:d] ----- U2's Call to Disarm On their recently wrapped tour, U2 used their nightly podium to powerfully address the issue of gun control. During their performance of The Joshua Tree's "Bullet the Blue Sky," the band screened a disturbing video montage created by artist Catherine Owens that included images of victims of gun violence and children toting firearms. "The song needed something that would contemporize it," says the Edge. "We're treading a very fine line between being artists and wanting to lecture Americans about issues that are important. It's basically turning the mirror on the audience." During their June 21st performance at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Bono stood at the end of the heart-shaped catwalk, illuminated only by the flashlight he held in his hand. At the song's climax, Bono turned the flashlight toward his face as he repeated, "What's my name? Mark Chapman!" over and over again, referring to John Lennon's assassin. In the past twenty-one years, 676,000 Americans have died as a result of gun violence - a total higher than the death tally from the Vietnam War. "It's so surprising to people who come from Europe and anyone who's come from Ireland that in the U.S. guns are so available," says the Edge. "It has always mystified us."

"It's so surprising to people who come from Europe and anyone who's come from Ireland that in the U.S. guns are so available," Really? Isn't Ireland where those folks by the name of IRA live? You know those "nice" people that blow innocent folks up for no good reason. Sound like U2 has problems enough at home, without worrying about my country's internal affairs.[pissed]

hey U2...........[-!-] ...maybe if irishmen like these weren't so anti-gun, they wouldn't have this annoying little "brittish occupation" problem to begin with! instead of learning from history, they have doomed their own countrymen to repeat it...and WE will have the last laugh!!!!! HA, HA, you hypocritical fools, when you were poor and powerless, you lamented over freedom issues, now that you can afford to have houses in AMERICA, which places you safely "above the fray", you feel you can try and trample MY rights in the name of "feel-good-profits" ? may your cause die along with your profit-base, and may your own countrymen hate you forever, like we do!!!
