Israel knows how to do it.

Yes, they do.

There are wolves everywhere, in our government, our cities and our communities. They look at the rest of us as sheep. Some of these wolves are pushing to leave the rest of us defenseless, telling us to trust them to protect us. Why in the world would anyone trust these people??? They want us disarmed for only one reason...so they can have complete control of us!

“Attacking the 2nd Amendment over Sandy Hook is like attacking the 1st Amendment over Bill Maher.”

Sometimes a horrific evil happens but that is no reason to take away the gifts God gave us that are listed in The Bill of Rights.

Chris Wallace asked Bill Kristol if Republicans should give in on "these weapons of mass destruction ... the handgun that could fire 5 bullets in a second, the magazines a hundred rounds ...".

He should have asked if it's time to stop pretending that crazy people are normal and should they be institutionalized for the good of society?

I've seen that photo a lot over the last few days -- that rifle shouldn't be loaded -- it's Israeli SOP, they're very big on gun safety -- and she may not even have any ammo for it on her person.

Israel is far more restrictive of gun ownership than even the bluest of the blue states in the US.

Good post but you and I know that the die has been cast by the liberals who currently control much of the msm. Its all about gun control and that means your gun and mine need to go.

"Regardless - he didn't use an "assault" weapon, he used two handguns, so why the call for another "assault" weapon ban?"

Because if they could act on logic instead of emotion, they wouldn't be liberals.

I think Connecticut -- like most of the blue states -- already bans "assault" weapons. What they don't do -- and is next to impossible to do, is ban "ugly, scary, black" guns.

Comparing what happened in CT or Columbine etc. to the situation in Israel is comparing apples to oranges. They are in no way similar.

They have to point to the gun, otherwise they may have to talk about the cause. Why are we drugging all our boys up so they can be good little girls in the classroom?

The Ritalin and violent video cocktail is paying its results. Not hard to figure out a kid addicted to mass killing videos is eventually going to look for a bigger kick.

I really think insanity is a symptom rather than a cause. There will always be mentally ill people and some of those will be predisposed to commit violent acts. They should be identified and institutionalized.

However, we seem to see a rising level of mass violence not only in the US, but around the world. Perhaps, it is just because of our ability to learn of them compared to 50 years ago, but I sense more of it.

Personally, I believe that Man is still coming to grips with the impact of technology on their lives. The change has been so rapid and profound that the human pschye can not absorb it all. It is far easier for someone to operate at the periphery of society and functiopn without having a lot interchange with other human beiings. You can live in a fantasy world and lose touch with reality.

In this case, I bet video games played a part in the way the shooter could dispassionately shoot people in cold blood in much the same way he does on a video game. He can look at a Tarratino movie and see violence depicted that is so realistic that he becomes inured to it in real life.

Also consider why are most mass shootings in real or defacto "gun-free" zones. Sandy Hook, Columbine, VaTech, NIU, even back to the UT tower shooter decades ago.

Why invite trouble by advertising that criminals will not be challenged in our schools ?

Geo Will trying to push back...with reason and logic. Makes NO difference. the Libs will not go with reason. Chafetz trying to push back. Hey guys, give up...Black rep Denna Howard “we gotta get the guns! there’s a lot of guns out there.”

Good Lord...”we want the President to take action on this.”They are going after the assault weapons.

Can you not "reach out and touch someone" with ANY gun?

That makes them ALL "assault weapons".

Frankly these mass murders bore me. We know the politicians are going to crawl up on their caskets and make vote for me speeches which is the real crime. How about letting the town mourn and get over it before the next drug filled copycat gets his face on the news.

Actually, I predicted this a year ago in one of my posts. It spoke of the Godless atheistic cult and going through tough times like today. During the Great Depression people relied on God and family, we don’t have that now.

We have an empty existence with hate and violence and boys being told not to run and jump so they get put in a ADD drug induced straight jacket. This will increase as Obamanomics continues to make people more and more desperate.

Ain’t communism wonderful?

You’re right, it’s very rare around here. Fairfax County has over 1 million people today and this was the first officer shot in the line of duty in its history, which dates back to 1741.

Just got back from church—have to chime in.

It’s not just the mentally ill. It’s the human race. We are all insane without a relationship with God.

Adam’s disobedience made us incomplete—insane if you will.

Only through the Redemption of Christ can we be whole again.

For the atheists:
Mankind evolved too fast, and our brain grew so rapidly, evolutionally-wise, that there are thousands of builtin anomalies and quirks that render most of us insane or borderline insane. And the hundreds of thousands of years of living and evolving in small bands of hunter/gatherers has only been recently surplanted by an agricultrally based urban society that puts us in close, panic level proximity to too many strangers, thus stripping away our humanity and exposing our savageness. In other words, we’re still blood-thirsty chimpanzees in too small and crowded a cage.

Still, I believe in God, and the evil that lurks the World, until such time as He returns, and that evil and evil men shall always be with us as long as Satan reigns o’er the Earth. We are not of and for this world, as the Lord Jesus said. Think, while Christmas is Nigh, upon the meaning of His birth.

Killing by firearm could be eliminated if the following was done:

1. Revert our way of life to the technology of 12th Century Europe (not China, as they had gunpowder by that time).

2. Confiscate every single gun, rifle, pistol, revolver, musket, cannon, blunderbus and arquebus. This includes ALL military and police weapons, world-wide. Melt them down.

3. Kill all armorers and any one who knows how a gun is used, manufactured, produced, etc. Destroy all records of their existance and scour libraries and bookstores for any and all references to firearms. Burn them. Then kill those who ordered and carried out the scouring, melting and burning.

4. Make it illegal to own salt peter, sulfur and charcoal, especially powdered varients of same.

Anything else?

Perhaps do away with steel, iron, and only allow metals made of bronze. Glocks have plastic parts, too. Ban plastic.

Boehner said negotiating tax rates going up on those making over 1 million. He should be proposing a wealth tax on all those who spoke out for higher rates, give up everything except for $250k, let them live like they want everyone else to. There’s no way the economics of raising tax rates helps the economy.

Your right, health care insurance is going to be like taking a mortgage out, about $400 a month if not employer subsidized. Then if you actually apply for a mortgage, the bank will have too see if there’s enough left over. It’s going to be a budget shock/nightmare for everyone.
