The communists are about to bury the SCOTUS with cases about the rights of We the People v. Da Gubmint.

Gun control advocates celebrate..

Somebody needs to call Bloomhole on his endless calls for somebody to do something. He’s the mayor, let him offer up a royal decree for his city and leave the rest of us the hell alone.

“Immediate executive action”?

Is that like sending his brownshirts door-to-door to collect everyone’s firearms?

I have to think of a better hiding place for mine.

I think Zero will try to reclassify, via EO, all semi-automatic firearms with removable magazines as “Machine Guns.”

I hope he sends a bill to Congress preventing everybody, and that is absolutely everybody, thinking they have an obligation to comment publicly on this tragedy and similar events. Enough people!

They will shoot for the moon......... gun show loophole, new AWB. But the one thing I think they have the best shot at will be a hi-cap mag ban.

Odumbo can try whatever his sick mind decides.

No EO can overide the Constitution. It would be summarily ignored. As would any manufactured 'state of emergency.'

To the dimwits who wring their hands and ask, 'why do we have so many of these incidents?' there are two reasons. This is one of the largest countries in the world. Among 316,000,000 persons, you WILL have one of the 25% who are functionally insane, one of them will act out.
And when those insane are treated as normal for PC reasons, there is always a price to pay for irrational empathy. Just pray it is never a member of your family.

Oh, there's gonna be a gun ban coming around the corner. You can count on that. It'll probably be a line-for-line resurrection of the Clinton-era AWB. Won't be an Executive Order though. Obama has the political capital now that Clinton didn't have in '94. He'll cut a deal with House Republicans to run it through. And he'll have ample public support. Twenty dead kindergartners right before Christmas is more than many American voters can bear.

So, none of his EO’s carry any weight? Sadly, he don’t be carin’ bout no constitution. To paraphrase Eli Wallach, “Constitution? We don’t need no stinkin’ constitution.”

Bloomberg needs to disarm his security first along with all the libs in Congress and Hollywood idiots with their entourage of bodyguards. BO and his family’s security can be disarmed too. That way they will be at the mercy of nut jobs like all the rest of us. At that point, they can discuss taking our guns away. I’m sick of laws and restrictions being only for the “little” people.

That is exactly the point. Forty years ago insane asylums were closed since confining lunatics was a violation of their civil rights. Now it is virtually impossible to confine even overtly dangerous people for long. The Colorado shooter was known to be very dangerous by his licensed therapist. Nothing effective was done. He was never visited by the police. Bottom line if you let lunatics wander amongst society and people in medicine and law enforcement are hand tied by all sorts of regulations designed to “protect” their rights, society is very vulnerable. Just to highlight how destructively politically correct our society has become Congress voted overwhelmingly to ban the word “lunatic” from usein government documents.

I wonder what order these globalists want things to play out? Is it gun rights, retirement savings, private property rights? Is it retirement savings, gun rights, private property rights? Of course they’ll be coming for all three but I’d assume they need the guns early or else some of them might not be around to see the final act of tyranny.

Reestablish regular prayers in school, commit the dangerously mentally ill, permit school personnel to carry weapons.

Is that what Bloomberg had in mind?

What does the gray on the map stand for? I live in a gray area in California and it’s actually RED. Those of us in the gray zone would surely like it corrected to its true color.
And we have legal open space for shooting that we enjoy. BLM.

‘False flag’ comes to mind. Colorado, then Oregon, now this.. We’ve all heard how 0bama’s second term was going to be an assault on the 2nd amendment, and VOILA! He’s got all the reasons he needs to do so, now.. I still want to know more about the psychiatrist who met with the Colorado shooter before he completed his mission.

They executive branch can enact an immediate import ban on all firearms. Period. Hunting, assault, pistol, etc.

They can do the same for ammunition.

They can stop all transfers of Class III firearms immediately and/or increase the fee from $200 to $200,000.

Second Amendment supporters/gun owners should organize a massive march on Washington, DC, and stay there creating all kinds of protest. Contesting totalitarian government is what the 2nd Amendment is all about.

20 kids being murdered is horrible. But I don’t see flags being lowered to half staff for soldiers who die everyday.

It’s sickening how the libs are using this for political reasons. I guarantee there are idiots obama worshippers out there who are convinced Lanza was a tea partier.
