Yep, yet another mass shooting in a gun-free zone, and all this pinhead can do is bleat for even MORE restrictions on law-abiding gun owners.

“Do as I say peasants, not as I do!” This is the law of the land now, if you think these elites are going to allow this country to have the same freedoms we once had you’re a fool! Be they Republican or Democrat, their aim is the same: total control! Bow down before the politician who fears neither God nor his or her constituent, for they know what’s best, yet they require complete submission without nary a defense nor freedom of speech!

The title doesn’t really match the first line. Did he ask about guns or mass shootings?

yep.. Obama will come down on the exact wrong side of this.. He’ll react like a child all the while he’ll cynically use this event in every speech...

meanwhile Romney will call for cool heads, and Obama will mock that..

Obama had hoped to do the same with FAst and Furious. He now has his campaign twist... take away the guns..

meanwhile, there are just as many democrat gun owners, so it won’t work.

Ask him how much good the very strict handgun control in Ontario did recently.

If there were more law abiding citizens carrying there might have been less killed and wounded and no need for a trial.

They are going to do nothing and in reality there is nothing correct that they can do.
Guns exist. The really are not that hard to make. There are BILLIONS of them all over the world.
What needs to be done is to correct our economy and repair our society.
Oh and try this piece of crap convict him and execute him publically within 6 months of his sentence.

One of my thoughts was that this would be used for justifying TSA-like checkpoints at public venues like movie theaters, sporting events, malls, etc.

The real issue is why were there not enough or any armed citizens present to take out this monster when he began his rampage. One man with a 1911 and a spine and this would be a story of heroism and not a story about the slaughter of innocents.

After all the knee jerking is past:

What sort of stricter controls would have prevented this? None that I can think of. While talking about controls might make for high readings on the warm & fuzzy meter the truth is life is dangerous. Nothing can mitigate that single fact. The govt can’t guarantee your safety. Once you realize this one can only conclude more arms are wanted along w/ vigilance.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has emerged as one of the nation’s most pointless, clueless, laughable, incompetent, and yet big-mouthed supporters of gun control...

Fixed.

The police were of NO HELP in this situation, and the gunman surrendered after he did what he wanted.

The ONLY thing that could have stopped this would have been armed citizens.

Put that in your pipe, Herr Bloomberg.

No surprise, the Progressive Fascists in the political class are such shameless scum they will not hesitate for a second to try and exploit this tragedy.

It is this sort of sleazy scumbag exploitative behavior that renders people like Bloomberg complete unfit to hold any political office.

Until Nanny Bloomers disarms his own body guards and the NYC police, he has no business demanding Americans not have equal protection under the second amendment. He is so out of touch and petty, he’s dangerous.

Bloomie had a difficult choice here: Blame guns or blame Batman movies.

For a moment, he considered blaming the Jumbo Cokes at the concession stand...

If Mitt had any balls he would answer that he plans to send federal marshals to arrest Bloomberg, his police chief and the city council for violating the citizens of NYC’s Second Amendment rights under color of law.
