This fall, someone here on FR noted that there were 600,000 licensed hunters in Wisconsin in 2011, and there were no hunting fatalities!!
Another on that same thread noted that if you compared those 600,000 licensed hunters in Wisconsin to ‘standing armies’ of the whole world, WISCONSIN would have the 6th largest standing army on the planet.
Hey Carolyn! You moron!!! There are already laws on the books that make killing people illegal! How’s that working out for you morons?!
Hell- it doesn’t even work in CHICAGO!!!
They didn’t ban Oldsmobiles after Chappaquiddick.
They didn’t ban Kennedys, either!!
Once TSA is unionized, they’ll be put in charge of school
“security” as well.
“it’s for the children”.
Hey McCarthy, if you’re so concerned about murders caused by guns, why aren’t you investigating F&F or Benghazi. Oh, that’s right, those guns were used by your side for your agendas, so those are okay.
It’s her only claim to fame.
She doesn’t have the IQ of the chain across my front gate.
Hey Carol, do us all a favor and work to end immigration and blacks-as-perpetual-victims. Your husband was shot by a racist black!
She’s a typical self-absorbed liberal. I understand her mindset: something bad happened to HER, so the entire nation should bend to HER will. It’s all about HER and HER suffering. F-— her.”””
She is already a 3 bagger. Don’t think anyone has tried to tap that in ages.
I just hope I can get my new shotgun ordered and on my boat before this war gets going.
Sweet, now open it and take another pic. ;>)
I’m not sure why they didn’t outlaw barrels, fertilizer and Diesel fuel.
Or timers. Or watches. Or matches.
The Police also remove some of the bad guys, eventually. That's a big plus.
Now we see who the more ruthless one is.
Now that he is a lame duck for four years he can act with impunity on his preferences -- wiping his feet the Constitution, ignoring Courts and "on the books" law and Congress when it suits him. He's already abused current drug laws, spit on the Defense of Marriage Act, and spent without legislative approval, implemented Don't ask, don't tell, etc., etc.
It's all gonna be brought forward and it is an aggressive agenda.
Watch out folks, it's gonna be a rough ride.
“”I cant help but wonder if Rep. McCarthy owns a handgun of her own, or has a security person by her that does???””
I think it’s a pretty safe bet that the ones we’ll hear screaming the loudest for MORE gun control have personal security and the only way to shut them up is to single them out and call them on it!!
And so, if I'm not mistaken, is the murder of innocent children.
No, that's legal.
Codified by Roe v Wade.
Never let a crisis go to waste.
I still believe that the BATFE should be repurposed to exclusively stamp out the use of Alcohol, tobacco, firearms, & explosives in all of their products.
Then we'd be rid of Hollyweird, as they would be defunded by the public.
Great analogy. I might have to borrow that.
Well stated, ridethemiles. You said just what I’ve been thinking about this tragic day and several previous incidents. It should also be said that it was/is the liberals/progressives that abolished those full-time care programs that protected society and helped the serious mentals by housing them and taking care of them. Instead the social activists and many electeds back in the 70’s and 80’s felt that full-time institutions deprived them of their “rights” and they should be put on the streets with pharmaceuticals. The subsequent amount of crime, death, and tragedy is the result and it is both painful, and shameful.
Your loss is unfortunate, McCarthy, but you don’t speak me.
The murderer, Ferguson, should have been dispatched by armed passengers.
“”She used her insurance money to buy a house in the Hamptons””
Who did she collect insurance money from? The railroad? Certainly not her husband’s attacker....
I guess she’d better tell the Supreme Court, too.
“What you need is criminal control.”
We also really need to KINDLY incarcerate people who are hallucinatory.
“Never let a crisis go to waste.”
Heh; you’d need to see it in person, to fully believe and appreciate what’s in there.
You know I am not certain what his mental state was but, he stole those guns he used from his mom after he killed her, and punishment is not an issue for him because he killed himself.
Nothing could have prevented this except an armed person with a gun who shot him dead before he did damage.
I can see the White House calling all sorts of Congress critters, asking them to demand that the White House do something about guns.
Does McCarthy get the Queen of Hearts, or the Queen of Diamonds?
was the shooter raised taking Isotropic drugs? the shooter in columbine was.
These mass killings have happened in states that have strict gun laws. Mass killings are NOT happening in states with reasonable gun laws, and concealed carry. Waht does that tell you?
Ban all security details for politicians and celebs. No private security forces with any weapons that the average joe can’t buy at their local gun store.
first thing outlaw stupidity in
bringing loaded firearms into an elementary school is aleady against the law
And so, if I’m not mistaken, is the murder of innocent children.
No, that’s legal.
Codified by Roe v Wade.
That’s right. Sorry, America —you sit by and allow the destruction and murder of MILLIONS of innocent children every single day in this country. In fact, with your recent vote, you continue to CONDONE it. And yet we fake outrage and horror at this event. This society is SICK. Expect it to get MUCH worse — we live in upside down world where Christian values are prohibited, marriage and families are mocked, and families ..families all over are broken, dysfunctional, isolated, and ill. What else would we expect in a country where life is so constantly devalued?
Her whole career has been made on profitting off her dead relatives.
Particularly because no amount of Federal Gun Control Legislation can get in the way of someone stealing a gun and using it ... which is what happened in CT today with the kid grabbing mom's gun and then driving her car off to the school to shoot her.
The common theme with all these shootings is that it is a mentally ill person performing the actions. Deal with mental illnesses properly and you don't have the symptoms of untreated mental illness on the street.
Just like a quack doctor who treats the symptoms and not the disease and creates a public health hazard as a result, so too will these Dumbocrat legislators who think the mentally ill don't actually need treatment.
We used to have mental hospitals. Where are they now?
“Nothing could have prevented this except an armed person with a gun who shot him dead before he did damage.”
I’m all for the right to self defense.
I just think that we as a society have to acknowledge that delusional people are dangerous. It seems from newspaper reports that this man was acting crazy for a good long while, yet we have to just let him wander among us crazy. This isn’t working.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?
Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?
The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalins thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
If...if...We didnt love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn - The Gulag Archipelago
But you can bury your guns, get down on your knees and pray they don't haul you off to the camps. And do you think they will allow you a GPS to find your hidden guns?
I acknowledge that delusional people are dangerous.
People are dangerous.
They always have been, and they always will be.
In order to protect ourselves from dangerous people, we harden our defenses.
Another thing that people are is stupid, and dangerous people take advantage of stupid people.
Thinking that this “Gun Control” article may call for a cwiiping. We know how things turn out when statists have all the guns.
If we don’t disarm, the statists won’t be happy and will be more than willing to come and take them. What do you think?
Thanks for that quote from Rustyboots!
The problem is not the gun but the mother.
She should have maintined control of her son and failed. She should have removed herself from hamsway from her children.
She failed to do so. The woman, not the gun is root blame
At the end of the day...someone will wake up and realize there are over 1,000 pages of gun control laws already in effect (sales, ammo, checks, use, etc). So you ask yourself....another page to the 1,000....are we truly any better? If we had ‘bear control’ laws....could we prevent bear attacks? If we had more ‘bridge failure control’ laws....could we stop bridges from collapsing? If we just had more ‘ID theft control’ laws...we’d stop ID theft. Yeah, sure.
We went through ‘booze control’ with the probation era...and it really didn’t do much.
Course, if you wanted to put 75k emotionally out-of-control folks into mental institutes...we’d all jump up and say no to that....because you don’t dare put those poor unstable people away.
I protect my family in our home with Guns. The State writes laws forcing me to sen my children to their government schools. It is up to THEM then, to protect my children with Guns. If they do not, we should be talking about why public schools can’t keep our kids safe.
