I’ll go along with it when NYC, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Cleveland are safe to walk the streets anytime day or night. Let these blowhards clean up their own cities first.

Outlawing the use of antidepressants for young men might be the wiser choice. I assume this animal - like all the others - was taking antidepressants...

Attempting to disarm us will only get more people needlessly killed.

We need more guns in the Right hands to counter those weapons that end up in the Wrong hands...

Only then will events like today become rare...

If strict gun control worked, Washington DC would be the safest city in the United States - followed closely by New York and Chicago...

As a result of a similar shooting in Hungerford England, The Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988[2] was passed which banned the ownership of semi-automatic center-fire rifles and restricted the use of shotguns with a magazine capacity of more than three rounds.

This is not about guns. It is about a crazy sick young man.

Who do you blame for the warped sense of reality? TV? Schools? Pop Culture? Hollywood? Government programs?

Reality is truly dead.

NOW. Have you ever seen the coverage on an incident with so many serious errors in reporting as this developed? Wrong brother named. After right brother named it was said the other brother was found in the woods. We were told the mother was a teacher? Later we learn she was not, but might have been a volunteer.

It smells like the direction for the coverage is just like the lies that came our of Benghazi. Wonder if the MSM is taking tips from the White Hut?

This is a horrible tragedy. No one but a truly insane person could commit this crime.

And other “truly insane” people work at 1600 Penn Ave.

Forgot about DC. But yes, Bloomberg and others best take care of their own “gun safe cities” before charging in demanding Obamagabe to do something. Even if he signs some EO, it won’t be worth the paper it’s printed on. What’s that song where one part of a verse went “A lot of men tried and a lot of men died”? If people think that Prohibition was bad ....

If saving lives was the goal, then there would be a law requiring a certain percentage of the teachers to be armed.

“I think we will be there if the president exploits it, and otherwise we’ll go on to the next” incident, Mr. Nadler said

Mr. Nadler might need to be the one "exploited".

3600 gun laws in America, and evil still happens. 9/11 happened with box cutters, and the Oklahoma City federal bombing was done with fertilizer and diesel. Nadler is a fool. Closer to home 11 years and 2 days ago my son in law was murdered in Tulsa Ok. He was a mail carrier and the father of my oldest granddaughter. This scum bag Jason Weed spent less than 2 years in a nut house and now lives less than 20 miles away from my daughter and granddaughter. THATS THE LAW Nadler wants? Enough law Nadler, it didn't work for my family, it worked for the man who murdered my son-in-law. My heart goes out for the families affected by this tragedy, but there is evil in the world. Pass a law against that.

... so many serious errors in reporting as this developed

This wasn't "reporting" by any stretch of the imagination. It shows just how ridiculous the "news" media has become. This was a bunch of ghouls, rumor mongering at best. The dad is dead, no he's not, the mother was killed in the classroom with her students ... oh wait, she was shot in the face in her bed ... it's Ryan, it's Adam ... well, maybe it IS Ryan... no, it's Adam who might have had Ryan's ID ... girlfriend is missing ... is she dead? It's a rifle, no it's two handguns ... rifle in trunk ... oh wait, now ATF says maybe more than two guns .....who was in the woods? was it Ryan or Adam or a friend?? one shot in the foot, 3 at hospital - what? more are dead? it's 12 .... now it's 18, now it's 20. Oh look, now Obama is crying on TV .... CRYing, I tell you .... let's talk about Obama crying instead of kids massacred ... he's gotta DO something this time ... he will, too - did you see him wipe his eyes?

Rumors and rumors upon more rumors ... it was worse than a circus. The poor parents will have the ghouls after them for the next couple of weeks ... they've already been interviewing traumatized kids .... how did you feel when you saw your mommy? Were you scared? Ghouls and more ghouls. The "news media" is dead in this country - about as dead as decency, morals, values, respect for life and the GOP. (pardon the mini-rant, but I'm just really ticked off right now)

Gun control has zero to do with safety. It has to do with power of the leaders over the people. Look at the power of political leadership where there is strict gun control, both in the cities you named and in other countries.

Strict gun control most certainly does work, and it has nothing to do with preventing crime.

This was a terrible tragedy and an outrageous crime. Words cannot adequately express condolences for the grief of the families affected by this.

This kind of thing should never happen. But, someone has pointed out that gun free zones mean that only bad guys have the guns.

If teachers and principals were armed this kind of thing wouldn't expand to the awful magnitude that it does.

And, if we didn't condense everything into super-sized schools the opportunity wouldn't exist the way it does.

I have heard very cogent arguments for the one-room school house that goes up to eighth grade. After that perhaps trade schools and college prep academies.

In the final analysis however, more gun control means more opportunity for the bad guys.

Conspicuously absent in ALL reporting of these school incidents is the FACT that Liberal controlled schoools teach "do you own thing", you have "Rights", Diversity, Touchy/Feely Kumbaya sensitivity, etc., etc.

There is NO discipline, no moral compass, and in most cases, lack of a Traditional Family, with fathers in the home as head-of-household.

The American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the colonists.

Hey Nadler, here’s the deal, I have a proposition for you..I’ll give you twenty whole dollars if you can get a gang banger in Chicago to give up his piece..just go ask him “Pretty please Mr. Gang banger, please give up your gun” and see what he says..if you make it out without your body being riddled with bullets I’ll buy you a steak

Going back to institutionalizing the mentally ill is what’s really needed. In the last two weeks, mentally ill people have shot up a mall in Oregon, killing some shoppers, pushed somebody under the subway in New York City, killed a college professor in front of his students with a cross bow, and now killed some thirty people, most of them small children.

And that’s only the assaults that were gruesome enough to get reported nationally.

obozo has already said that he will exploit it!
‘I will use the power of the president to help....’
said obozo yesterday.
obozo has the power to raise the dead, when these dead people don’t inconvenience him!

He also has the power to condemn Americans to death when they are in his way, such as the 4 Americans in Benghazi on 911, 2012!

obama, thy name is ‘exploit’ !
