I think so, and our ranks are growing every day. We will prevail.

WE 2nd Amendment defenders must use this as OPPORTUNITY to point out that (nearly) ALL of these mass killings take place in “gun free zones”, or “gun banned” areas.

Those who wish to get this type of attention, and thereby get notoriety and commit suicide, invariably choose such areas they know are safe for their dirty work. The remedy which would actually help is exactly the opposite of what the gun-grabbers and fear mongers trumpet incessantly - concealed carry in all of these areas! In this case, allow ALL weapon qualified teachers and school employees to carry, and encourage them to do so. Make federal handouts for education contingent on schools success in having employees who are willing to do so.

I have a “Christmas Party” today. I am certain this subject will come up. I will loudly repeat this.

My “go to” expert on this is John Lott, of “More Guns, Less Crime”. johnrlott.blogspot.com - He was interviewed by Mark Levin yesterday evening, and stated that only one mass killing in the last 30 or whatever years was NOT in a “gun free” or “gun ban” area. The Colorado theater shooter could have chosen 5 theaters closer to his home, but chose the theater that powerfully advertised “no guns allowed”.

Time to get back to common sense and make concealed carry both the law of the land, and the expected practice of law-abiding citizens.

I just remember story about a week ago where these street gang guys came up and asked this woman for a cigarette and she told them to get a job. The shot her. She was 21 with a baby. I think that Bloomberg should clean up his own cite before going off demanding the president to do something. He’s admitting he can’t handle the gun problem in NYC.

It is so sad to see young children killed so needlessly and at Christmas time.I can only imagine how the parents feel.Many of those children probably already had presents under the tree, too. Many prayers for them.
For some of the people who are supposed to be leading our country, and the communist media to use a tragedy as this for political gain WITHIN A FEW HOURS makes my blood boil.

Totally agree.

May God comfort the families for their loss and the survivors who will forever be affected.

May God Bless and protect the U.S. and all his followers.

I'm not taking any lectures from liberals about gun control until they are willing to talk about their support for abortion on demand (and taxpayer-funded abortion) that has cost tens of millions of lives in this country. 20 children died in this shooting, and that is utterly horrible and despicable. The same day, based on yearly averages, about 3,000 children died in abortions, unseen, unloved, thrown away like garbage. Nadler doesn't have a problem with that. Neither does Obama. As horrible as the blood is on the hands of Adam Lanza, Nadler, Obama, and liberals everywhere who support abortion have the blood of millions on their hands. They have no moral standing to lecture the rest of us about gun control, or “caring”, or “for the children”, while they stand for the indiscriminate slaughter of millions.

I say remove your kids from ant gun free school, lets ban these propaganda centers that refuse to take it seriously the issues and threats around us.

All they are interested is their funding.

make our schools like the Israeli model.

But then again as soon as we have fortified schools the left will get all in a tizzy it interferes with teaching the children.

Home school is an option.

I've been looking for all the stories of celebrities and politicians thhat have said they will be voluntarily giving up their own guns and armed bodyguards, as an example to the rest of us.

I wonder if Obama sheds tears over children killed as collateral damage from drone attacks. It couldn’t possibly be phoney and part of a move to gun control, could it?


Billy Jeff ..... Show them some fake tears .... And by the way they will
Forget you didn’t cry over F& F fallen, or Bengahzi. Heroes.

2010 (Last year I could find for both categories)

gun murders 8,775

auto deaths 32,885

When the fascists are ready to have a debate about banning autos - for which a driver's license is a privilege - then perhaps we can start a dialog about changing or repealing the "much hated" 2nd Amendment - which is a RIGHT.

NOT UNTIL THEN.

A real media would have found out exactly what “meaningful action” the President had in mind. Its like the CHANGE.... on a scale of mixed capitalism to complete Communism where on that scale Obama’s CHANGER gets us is still moving left... for the “meaningful action” I suspect it means as far leftwing as I can politically take the country, so gun control is definately now top of the agenda.

Obama already has and will cotniue. What does a shooting have to do with any President? He’s the manager of the federal government, not the nation’s king or Lord. He isn’t someone we should look to for advice or sympathy.

These anti-constitutionalists do not understand it is a RIGHT- of self defense, and it is a right for it from an intolerable government foreign or domestic. They CANNOT take this away.

No gun law would have prevented the son from killing his Mom. But changing the media coverage of these kinds of things— WOULD. No media attention— period. Because that is what these worms want— attention.

Libs also don’t understand that this isn’t the first time someone has killed elementary children. The first time the person did not use a firearm except to trigger a bomb. Truly horrific by an adult. Story is appalling. 38 children killed— still the deadliest mass murder in a school in US history.

The media blasts the picture of this creep into everyone’s TV, and every detail of its life 24/7 , making it world famous , making it a household name.

Question:
Does the media realize that this coverage of its life will create copy cats who seek fame or to go out in a blaze of glory ?

My answer: Yes the media know this and purposefully report on it in such a manner as to create more copy cats that seek fame or glory .They could report on the killings but not the identity, nor details of how it was done so as to not encourage copy cats but they do because the media want this to happen so they can empower government, take away our gun rights , take away our freedom, our rights etc. .The media created the situation where now mass shootings are happening very frequently as they didn’t happen with this frequency in previous decades if at all then. Then the media get excited and happy that their work paid off when one happens and they go all crazy reporting it like sharks in a feeding frenzy.

The presstitutes gin this stuff up, then squawk bloody murder about ‘gun control’ when it happens again. How about let’s have some ‘media control’? Do the presstitutes ‘cause’ massacres? They certainly are ENABLERS of copycats and provide plenty of pubicity and encouragement for these evil ones to look for a public venue to exploit. The so-called ‘news media’ have my everlasting disgust .... not only from this sort of stuff but from two personal experiences I’ve had with them. Fricking ghouls .... no regard for the feelings of anyone other than getting some sort of story, accurate or not, on the TV screen or front page of the newspaper.
