The only way to get lunatics and violent criminals to quit shooting people is to take guns away from law-abiding citizens!


/s

There. Fixed it. Betcha you forgot the sarcasm tag. “If they take guns, then I’ll have to beat intruders to death with my cane. If they then take my cane, it’s really going to harsh my buzz not being able to get around...”

agree Chris.

Society has gone down hill so much that we can never have the porper fmaily wiht parents raising their children and spending time with them.

The left created this social mess and now they want to blame guns which have been around for hundreds of years because it suits their agenda

Posted elsewhere:

Why have most of these tragedies have only occurred recently?

Repeating firearms have existed for over 150 years – the Colt revolver for example.

So please enlighten as to why those kind of massacres didn’t occur 150… 120.. 100 years ago?

Why didn’t these tragedies occur back when select fire – fully automatic weaponry were easily available?

Why do these tragedies almost always occur in “Gun-Free” zones – where the law-abiding are denied the right of self-defense?

And why do they happen a lot of the time in heavily Democratic states with that already have tight gun-control laws?

she will exert pressure on the White House to push for gun control legislation.

She's admitting she's pro-crimminal. She wants to punish the innocent people for the crimes THEY commit.

Typical liberal. Assbackwards. Protect the criminal, punish the innocent.

What about Hollywood? They constantly put out movies where both the good and the bad guys glorify the misuse of guns in a way no responsible gun owner would. How many people has Matt Damon shot? I believe Hollywood is more at fault than anything else. If Obama was serious there would be an X rating on those movies. But I doubt that Hollywood will even be considered to have any blame since they are all just a bunch if libs.

She can stamp her foot and blow her hot foul air all she wants....it’s her constitutional right. To own what I own is my constitutional right. This country is already on the verge of an another outright civil war. Morons like her are the types that will push it over the edge.


I’ve been thinking about the possibility of an upcoming civil war. Any thinking, feeling human being should be scared out of their wits of the thought of one. With that said though... I have to admit that it’s pretty much inevitable. There is too much anger, too much hatred, too much loathing that has been building up for years now.

How it will start I have no idea, but unlike the last time it won’t be a war between the states. This time it will be a war on a true civil scale, neighbors or neighborhoods against each other, the citizenry against the bureaucracy. I feel that once it starts it will be true anarchy before the sides coalesce.

Historically most civil wars are instigated by the intelligentsia and some of the “upper crust” who for various reasons want to put themselves up even higher on the ladder looking down at the peons they have fooled into supporting the. In many ways this one is going to come about the same way. The College Professors who promote Marxist ideas, the MSM journalists and commentators that spread the ideas even further by slanted or even false news stories and memes.

And finally by our own elected officials and unelected bureaucrats in government. They do it by making up even more oppressive laws and regulations and turning the government into a “protection racket” demanding more and more money and resources all of the time to feed it’s unending appetites.

So how it will start is still unknown, how it will end is also. All I do know is that no one will emerge unscathed if it does.

oh come on, if not a school it;s a movie place, a park, a mall.

You don;t liek public schools then fine but that is not the problem right now.
This is about parents raising kids or should I say not raising kids, spending time as a family and working through their problems.

This shooting could have happened anywhere the anti public school agenda is for another thread and another day

The Left won’t rest until every U. S. Citizen is defenseless in their own home, just waiting until the next home invasion robber has a whim.

Just like the Mexican people are afraid to go in public while the drug lords murder the people without fear.

We have armed guards in banks and passenger jets. Why not schools?

If some punk saw a signed that read...

“ARMED PLAINCLOTHES OFFICERS ON DUTY”

...in front of a schoolhouse, they might think twice about shooting.

Friggin’ gun control laws are for liberals to feel good about themselves. They don’t work.

I think it’s time we agreed to meet the statists half way on their gun grab agenda. Let the liberals disarm and we keep ours.

It does seem that these mass shootings of late have been instigated by those that leaned left (admittedly they leaned crazy ... but they also exhibited affection for leftist positions).
Laughner (sp?) went after Gifford because she wasn't leftist enough for her taste.
I believe the Colorado shooter had OWS ties.
I suspect we will find similar affiliations with the Oregon and Connecticut murderers.
My conclusion is that it is dangerous when liberals have weapons. Anyone who has voted for a Dem should be disarmed. Obviously their voting history is a sign of mental instability.

Clearly a learning factory for children is way more efficient.

When I wuz a kid our class size was ~30 kids/class. I learned just fine (especially after I learned to read so I could sit in the back and be reading a book held out of sight under the desk when things got boring).

Homeschooling every kid makes more sense than banning guns though.

This one is a ruse. They’re doing this to draw all attention away from Obama himself and the ATF. Never lose sight of the main problem, which is Obama. Just think of what happened in Lord of the Rings, when men marched on Mordor to draw attention away from Frodo.

In the wake of the deadly Connecticut school shooting, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy said she has warned the White House “the gloves are off” if President Obama fails to act on the issue.

McCarthy (D-N.Y.), the foremost gun control advocate in Congress, said she spoke with White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew before Election Day and told him she will exert pressure on the White House to push for gun control legislation.

First, there are already more than 20,000 gun control laws actively on the books today and none of them prevented this tragedy. Second, millions upon million of people in America own guns and 99.9999% of them have never and will never do anything like this.

So, let's lose the hysteria and analyze the facts - a PERSON did this, NOT a hunk of steel. In Portland, a PERSON killed two people in the mall, NOT a hunk of steel! In Denver, a PERSON shot up the theater, NOT a hunk of steel!!

NONE of these facts will matter to the gun-grabbing nanny-staters, because they focus solely on the gun and nothing else. So, what happens if ALL guns are outlawed and forcibly collected by the feds? Someone bent on committing mass murder may turn to knives, hatchets, chainsaws or machetes. So, we outlaw those. The next person to commit a heinous crime may use a bat, poison, poison gas or a semi-tractor. And the one after that may use a car, a pen or pencil, a rock, his hands . . . . . . so when do we blame the PERSON and NOT the inanimate weapon!???

The fact remains that until the left understands that murdering humans by ANY means including their favorite method, abortion, human life will be valueless and more copycats will come out to exercise their demented mass murder of innocent people.

I heard a short time ago that the shooter stole his mother’s guns - they were not his. If we have grown children, we don’t feel the need to lock our guns away from them. Don’t think this could have been prevented.

Senator Feinstein has already introduced a bill to get rid of assault rifles (whatever she calls an assault rifle). That bill requires those who own them, to give them up.

So, trying to get rid of certain guns isn't new.

“What good does it do you to hide your guns if you are going to cower when they come for them?”

How about “All The Above”??

I think every gun loving American should buy an AK variant, such as a Century Arms Polish Tantal, and a tin of 1080 rounds of ammo, both together for around $600 (less than the cost of your average handgun), and mark with GPS and bury them in water proof PVC, in addition to keeping the one’s they have on hand.

If many people did this there is no way that there would ever be a successful confiscation.

If only it were that simple. The laws are actually to inform the criminals and terrorists of the locations of soft targets. Criminals and terrorists have paid lobbyists too. They pay good money for these types of laws. I want to add a /s tag, but am not joking.

Mainly, I want Secret Service protection for all of us for life, then we’ll talk about gun control.

We do NOT have a gun control problem in the USA.

We DO have a serious mental stability problem.

There are millions fo guns in the USA which have never done a thing wrong—either on their own (impossible) or in the hands of their owners. I was raised in a home where rifles and shotguns hung openly on the den wall. Even with the uberfights our parents had over the years, none of us 4 kids EVER thought either one of them would grab a gun. Lots of bad words—a knife a couple of times, but never the guns.

I would bet a prime rib dinner that almost everyone here on FR over the age of 40 has met someone or knows a family member—close or distant—or knows a family with a member who is more than “just a little quirky”.

Then there are those who are truly rubber room material and don’t belong on the streets and in the grocery aisles with the rest of us. None of these people are candidates for ‘out-patient’ status in any kind of treatment program. They cannot be depended upon to take their medication timely and continuously, and have to have supervision at all times. Instead, they are left alone to run amuck and to use guns to kill others in large numbers and guns get the blame.

There are millions of those loose in our society and their friends and family have blinders on until another day like today.

One neighbor of those 2 brothers summed them up in one word: TROUBLE. Since they re 20 and 24 years old, I would probably get a gold star for guessing tht they have been TROUBLE for some time & there was no legal way to remove them from the midst of the rest of us who just want to do our jobs, attend school, take care of ourselves in retirement and stay out of the way of these crazies as best we can.

There is a serious deficit in the USA about addressing the mentally unstable, and I would like to make it a crime if the family didn’t turn them in for treatment. IF the family member is wrong—then the person is turned loose, but how many of us truly know or knew at least ONE person in our lives who really didn’t belong in polite society?

I have—we all have.

When the dust settles in Connecticut, I think we will find that there were many warning signs about these 2 young men and NOTHING was done.

I have sympathy for the victims-—but not for the family members who didn’t do a thing to stop them.

I know the guns are NOT to blame. The person holding the gun and using it is to blame.
