Politicians from across the US have called for a reassessment of gun laws in the wake of Friday’s deadly school shooting in Connecticut, with prominent Jewish representatives leading the charge. Two senators, including Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut, called Sunday for a national commission to examine mass shootings in the United States, while Senator Dianne Feinstein of California (D) vowed to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons.

Stupid is as stupid does. You’d think of all people the Jews would know better.

Maybe the picture of German soldiers executing the unarmed people during WWII will revive their memory.

before he murdered 6 million Jews didn’t Hitler first take their guns thus leaving them without any means to resist his tyranny? Had I lost a child in school shooting I'd been pissed that no one on the school staff was armed to stop the murderer. only a fool would call for more gun control. Unless of course one is a politician that is scared of the citizens.

Jews huh? You know, most vote straight line Democrat.

I guess they forgot about the summer vacations to Auschwitz in old box cars. Now, they want to live in a Marxist/Communist society once again.

I guess whatever comes to them they worked hard to deserve.

Democratic lawmaker: To get gun control, Obama must ‘exploit’ shooting
vices

By Ben Wolfgang

The Washington Times

Friday, December 14, 2012

A veteran Democratic lawmaker believes the nation will go along with stronger gun control laws if President Obama “exploits” the Newtown, Conn., tragedy and nudges Congress to action.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who represents portions of New York City, said he was encouraged by Mr. Obama’s statement on Friday afternoon that the mass shooting, which claimed the lives of 20 young children, requires “meaningful action” by Congress, but hopes those words turn into concrete legislation.

Same here. They can see how armed teachers have actually protected children in Israel, yet they don't want this same protection for American children and citizens?

Hey morons - you should take pride in what your ancestors accomplished with a fewer number of guns than I have in my collection:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Ghetto_Uprising

If they’d had been decently armed, thousands of more Jews would have survived. And you want to take guns away from people and give them to the Government?

History completely fails to teach some people.

Yeah, well, we know where their political instincts led the Jews, oh, ‘round about the middle of the last century.

It is with the resulting images of families being separated on a rail road siding to go to work houses (adults)or gas chambers (children) that I promise anyone trying to take MY gun will get the lead in it first.

But murder is one of the Ten Commandments. So they can't outlaw murder; that would violate the church/state divide.


Do I really need the sarcasm tag? Unfortunately, yes; because otherwise, some freepers would become outraged at the thought that murder would be sanctioned.

If a deranged man kills his mother, steals her car and hits and kills several children and teachers, would it make sense to implement stricter rules on car ownership, types of cars and the size of gas tanks?

So-called ‘American’ Jews are not actually Jews.

They’re left-wing surrender monkeys that wouldn’t last three days in Israel.

History completely fails to teach some people.

“I have seen these people,” the LORD said to Moses, “and they are a stiff-necked people.- Exodus 32:9

Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteousness that the LORD your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people.- Deuteronomy 9:6

For I know how rebellious and stiff-necked you are. If you have been rebellious against the LORD while I am still alive and with you, how much more will you rebel after I die! - Deuteronomy 31:27

But they would not listen and were as stiff-necked as their ancestors, who did not trust in the LORD their God.- 2 Kings 17:14

Do not be stiff-necked, as your ancestors were; submit to the LORD. Come to his sanctuary, which he has consecrated forever. Serve the LORD your God, so that his fierce anger will turn away from you.- 2 Chronicles 30:8

Feinstein Introducing Gun Ban; Durbin Holding Hearings

By Susan Jones
December 17, 2012

(CNSNews.con) - Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) says she will introduce a gun-control bill on the first day of the next Congress: “It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession — not retroactively, but prospectively —” of “assault weapons” as well as high-capacity magazines.

And Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said he will hold a hearing in two weeks on “this constitutional question,” a reference to the Second Amendment. “That’s the starting point,” he said.

Apparently they're not as smart as they think they are. NY Jews would vote for Adolf Eichmann if he ran on the Democratic ticket. Obviously they haven't learned anything from history.

I’m confused. Didn’t Lanza use 9mm guns in his rampage? What good would banning military-style weapons do?

Unless....the left plans to just start with banning military-style weapons. Or as the leftists so love to do....they may be planning to redefine the term “military-style” to include 9mm?

Lanza’s Weapons
By Robert VerBruggen
December 16, 2012 5:02 P.M.

Earlier reports said that Adam Lanza had relied on two handguns, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, during the shooting, while a rifle was found in the trunk of his car. But according to a CNN news update:

[Lt. J. Paul Vance] told reporters that Adam Lanza used a Bushmaster AR-15 “assault-type weapon” most of the time at the school. Lanza was armed with magazines that held 30 bullets each, according to Vance. He said there were hundreds of bullets for the weapons as well.

Vance told reporters that an additional weapon, a shotgun, was recovered from a vehicle Lanza parked outside of the school. The gunman also had a Glock 10mm and a Sig Sauer 9mm, multiple magazines and additional ammunition...

They already have: The Hate Crime Legislation.

Now, if you only kill someone that speaks the same language as you and is of the same skin color......You are simply tried for murder.

If the victim is any other color than white, of different beliefs, speaks a different language, has different (or contorted) morals, or is of a different sex...NOW YOU ARE REALLY IN BIG TROUBLE! YOU COMMITED A HATE CRIME!

Normal murder of an individual is bad but a Hate crime murder is much worse...even though the victims died way.

Thanks. Haven’t had time to read all posts (too much Christmas stuff to do).

Listening to Rush on how all reporting by lamestream media on this incident was incorrect thus far. Makes me wonder if they’ll ‘change’ the facts of this incident to fit their agenda (like with Benghazi).

Hitler didn’t take their guns...THEY GAVE HITLER THEIR GUNS!

The Jews (enmasse) REGISTERED THEIR GUNS when asked to. Then guess what happened?

The same thing that will be happening here in America soon.

They're not thinking, they're emoting. They're mostly urbanites, and have been trained to feel that guns are 'icky', and that people who own guns are 'icky', and shouldn't we rely on the police anyway? Somebody should do something (but certainly not us).

It's not so much Jewish thing as it is an urban thing ... cities breed a certain passivity.

IMO.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg speaks during a news conference at City Hall in New York, Monday, Dec. 17, 2012. Bloomberg and dozens of shooting survivors and victims' relatives are calling on Congress and President Barack Obama to tighten gun laws and enforcement.

Chicago, IL – In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is calling on Illinois, and the nation, to pass an outright ban on assault weapons, and to considerably change concealed carry laws in the US.
