America Doesn’t Need Gun Control, It Needs Lunatic Control

Yup. And most of them are in Washington.

God bless those babies. I am just sick about them.

I used to work as an attendant at a NY State mental hospital back in the 60s. Most of these places are closed now. The left said it was against those people’s constitutional rights to warehouse them.

There was a reason for such places.

Is there really an asylum big enough for all the socialists and islamists?

I see Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals are now fully in play. Indentify the target. Isolate it. Whip up mass hysteria and animosity towards the target. The target of course is gun rights-—the Second Amendment.

This morning on the news I heard the following stories: Hedge funds planning on onloading shares of firearms manufacturers, big chain stores to drop various types of firearms, polls show more people favoring stricter gun control, legislation being introdruced in Congress. NOT ONE SINGLE NEWS STORY ON THE REAL CULPRIT BEHIND ALL OF THESE MASSACRES: MENTAL ILLNESS.

.......Or rather the NEED for repentence and return to God and the realization of the reality of “spiritual warfare” between Heaven and Hades.

I do think that gun control would have helped in the Connecticut situation: Mrs. Lanza should have controlled her guns better, kept them locked up away from her disturbed son. Ultimately, what might have helped was more son control.

I am more in favor of government control than gun control.

IMO, this is as futile an argument as the gun control one is.

Most mentally or emotionally challenged people do not show a penchant for violent actions and no one can predict when the line will be crossed into darkness and evil, if ever.

Are we going to institutionalize everyone with autism, or Asperger’s, or any other mental or emotional condition just because they have that condition?

If people do show a tendency toward violence, then the warning signs are there and action to restrain that person should be taken.

But that’s not going to prevent a Sandy Hook, just like more gun control laws won’t.

I don’t think that arming school personnel is the answer either. Their job is to teach. It’s the duty of parents and law enforcement to protect children.

The only precaution that might have prevented a scenario just like Sandy Hook was better school fortification. It will cost money, but all doors and windows should be locked and bulletproof and there should be an armed guard present at all times (this is already the case at many troubled schools).

Now that doesn’t prevent an inside job (teacher going on a rampage, e.g.) mall shooting, or a movie theater shooting, or a workplace shooting. Nor does it prevent someone with a truckload of explosives from parking near or driving into a school building.

But it would have helped in this case and it doesn’t infringe on any individual rights.

If parents do not like having their children go to a “prison” for a school, they can choose a private school (also not immune from a mass murderer) or home school. I don’t like going to a courthouse, or an airport, or any other place where they give you an anal exam, but I have a choice just as parents can choose how and where their children are schooled.

why don’t the networks interview all the neighbors of this dirtbag and see what they say

Just like The idiot in Tucson who shot and killed a lot there were NUMEROUS incidents where the police were involved, and on TV after the shooting one person even said that he was never arrested before because his mother worked for the government and “there would be trouble”

SHE should also be held responsible for those deaths.

Who was in volved in Lanza’s life? was he ever arrested? institutionalized? With all the money paid to all these government bureaucrats, didn’t ANY OF THEM see this kids was a nutjob? Or did none of them ever notice?

It is fundamental incompetance either way. Why do we have so much government if it cant spot nutjobs like this?

America Doesn’t Need Gun Control, It Needs Lunatic Control

Unfortunately America is going to get GUN CONTROL because the far left has taken over the RAT party and now control it lock stock and barrel (Soros' "Reform" (or: How George Soros Bought the Democratic Party) , http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1143722/posts)


We have sent true conservatives to the District of Corruption to STOP the insanity the RATS are putting this nation through and who do we have leading the charge? The biggest RINOs on the planet, who incidentally also uses the RAT media to brag about his negotiating skills with his RAT opposition, when in fact he and the leaders achieve not even on tenth of what they promise us. In a sense I understand when people say there is no difference between the two parties.

There are people who are crazy and violent. Either put them in controlled rooms or kill them before they kill you.

PS Applies to Muslims, too.

We don’t need a pacification culture, we need a warrior culture.

In a warrior culture, every child is required to participate in learning to defend themselves, there family, and their community.

How many parents find karate lessons useful for their child’s discipline and as a healthy group activity. I think every house of worship should have someone teaching a martial arts class to anyone who wants to learn, especially children. Kids with emotional disorders would be identified early, interacting in a physically active group discipline might help some of their issues. In addition, it brings people together in church, especially those who would not ordinarily show their face in church, not only for worship but to interact as a community. Many churches could become headquarters for an outreach of conservative ideals and fomenting conservative activism.

I would expand on that my teaching not only how to maim with the hands, but how to heal with the hands. When training progressed to the stick, and how it extrapolates into the knife, cane, sword and staff, let kids also learn to take tools in their hands to work and build as an equal part of the classes, help maintain the homes of the aged. And after they’ve learned to work together in discipline and compassion in all these fields, there should be the basic hunter’s safety course and introduction to using a weapon to feed your family.

I don’t know how many people would actually make an effort with something like this, but I’m convinced it would be beneficial.

I haven’t followed this story closely at all, yes it is a tragedy. Now the gun control nuts are out in full force to ban assault weapons, big clips, etc.

Wasn’t the shooter using a pistol? I am not sure how much of this was released by the police, but I thought I had read that he was.

The insane will always find a way to be destructive. More rules or bans won’t stop them but only hamper efforts of citizens to protect themselves.
