The logic is if the rest of us are disarmed, the bad guys can't kill. It sounds good except in the WashCompost's own bailiwick, DC, the murder rate is the nation's highest, thanks to the government forbidding its citizens from defending themselves with guns. Good thing they didn't bring it up since they know there is no rational (or sensible political) argument for gun control. None whatsoever.

The ignorance is beyond profound.

Last I heard, gun control was a huge success in Chicago, too...

I can’t think of a single law that would have stopped this lunatic.

Gun control is like trying to solve drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to own cars.

The term for this is “blood dancing”. The anti-gunners do it every time.

The attack by the left on the 1st amendment is being beaten back. They just switch over to the 2nd amendment to try and save face. The real target is the constitution.

The only solution the left knows :

EVERY situation is used to try and expand the government, raise taxes and remove rights.

When a conservative dies our freedoms are expanded.

When a liberal dies they are reduced.

Criminal shooters would have far less victims if more average citizens owned & carried guns as they would quickly bring the assassin to a halt. I think the anti-gun folks actually know all this & are simply betraying themselves for the pro genocide advocates that they are because an un-armed population dovetails perfectly with their eugenicist / population control agenda. The anti-guners are really only against the average slave from having a gun to defend himself from the Loughners of the world. This is an undeniable fact.

If guns are responsible for violence, then we should let this shooter go and put the gun on trial.

It could be worse. The Giffords shooting could have happened when the Dems controlled both houses of Congress.

“These weapons serve no conceivable lawful purpose.”

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I believe the Second Amendment is a law, and that these weapons can be used to fight tyrants with similar weapons.

Expect to see Josh Sugarmann and Tom Diaz of the Violence Policy Center come crawling out from under their rocks. I’m surprised they haven’t already appeared.

Fourteen million new gun sales in 2009 should be an obvious indicator of the nation’s mood regarding firearms. Ammunition sales were off the charts too. The Compost is clueless.

Of course they’re for gun control...they probably have armed guards & metal detectors in their building. Who cares about the regular folk?

There will be a civil war if the left really tries to push this. I won’t be the one starting it.

“In Mexico, where assault weapons purchased in the United States have been responsible for tens of thousands of murders”

—no, ill-informed, lying propagandist ComPost...the main weapons used to kill in Mexico are Mexican Army issue.

The lies and deceit of the MSM is a continual drumbeat of repeating a story enough times to make it fact.

Dummies believe that and they are Leftists with no idea of anything but Communist Utopian garbage.

Gun control: It's not a political impossibility

. If they want to fight us on the second amendment, we should oblige them as we are actually positioned well for such a fight (thank you NRA). It will make taking the Senate that much easier for us. The gun Control issue has always been their Achilles heel.

I say let them try. It can only help us.

Gun control is a losing issue, and although this circumstance is a little different from Columbine and Virginia Tech since a member of Congress was involved, I'd give anyone a hundred to one odds that this push for gun bans will end up like all the others.

They'll pass some additional legislation that will provide some extra protection for politicians at the federal level. That will be all.

I do feel like the right took the defensive too early on this. Now all of the right wing media personalities look guilty to the uneducated masses, without taking into account all of the names Pelosi, Reid, and their ilk have called their political opponents.
