Repubs Need to Take the Lead on Newtown CT

Posted on 12/19/2012 11:02:58 AM PST by fruser1

It took about a whopping 5 secs for the left to politicize this mass murder for their gun control purposes. Most of the talk on the right has been on the defensive, justifying the 2nd ammendment in reaction to those efforts.

My opinion is that these events are averted by a stronger civil defense, not fewer guns or more police. Allowing folks to carry would provide that.

How about the repubs take the lead and push for concealed carry rights across the 50 states? This should be easy, legally, given the Heller decision.

If there's ever a Repub exec in the Whitehouse again, they should sue states that impose undue burdens on carrying. After all, didn't AZ get sued for what the Feds thought were abuses of rights on immigration?

Just another reason to get RINOs out and the TEA Party in.

Repubs need to come out of the gate swinging just like our commie "friends" across the aisle do.

The GOP isn’t going to take the lead on anything. It’s up to us, We The People.

Hold your horses. The knee jerk reactionists usually lose in the long run.

Problem solved in 1968.

“Today we begin to disarm the criminal and the careless and the insane. All of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail this day. —Lyndon Johnson signing the 1968 GCA into law.

We have no real leadership with guts. Our entire party including even the Tea Party sits back and is constantly on the defense instead of charging King Obama with the destruction of America in any media chance they have. Call this piece of garbage who he really is a communists black Muslim.

Need to speak to the non-stop coverage on CNN that is just adding fuel to the emotional fire that Obama wants to keep in play. Don’t let the fire go out lest folks start getting rational about gun control.

The Republicans didn’t take the lead when they had the White House and both houses of Congress.

Why would they take the lead now?

Never going to happen.
The first thing you need is a leader Anyone see a Reagan out there? I don’t. The next thing you need to do is turn back time to when Republican was spelled with a big R and not a little r..

Good cop/Bad cop.
The Republicans aren't going to do a thing. They're going to let the democrats run with this one.
They'll talk about something else, like how much more to take away from the tax slaves. Should the slaves pay a lot more, or should they pay a hell of a lot more?

Bonehead may take the lead, but u may be disappointed the direction
he leads. He may end up throwing in gun control and amnesty to get
his Grand Bargain he desperately desires.

The republicans leading on any issue means that issue will be lost utterly.

I will defend my own rights in this matter, and with regard to guns and the 2nd amendment, that conversation is over.

If officials wish to discuss actually defending children and schools, then we can discuss that.

The Democrats have given our side a HUGE opportunity to put an end to this gun control crap once and for all.

From now on any further discussion of gun control measures will include making all abortions illegal. Don’t want to discuss that? Then STFU.

After all it’s about protecting the innocents, right?

Agree completely. I am predicitng BOLD Action including the banning of all hand guns and semi-automatic rifles. And no, I'm not being sarcastic.

This will be considered the minimum "first step."

But you know, it isn’t even God that allows it.

It’s us.

I’m not certain why God whould bother to protect those who not only refuse to protect themselves, but actually disarm themselves and advertise that fact.

If one is Hell bent on making oneself a sitting duck, then one is going to be a sitting duck.

It struck me how it was reported that the principal of the school “lunged” at Lanza right before he killed her.

Now, I mean no disrespect against this lady, she did all that she could at the time, however, lunging has been proven to not only be a non-effective tactic, it is also a suicidal tactic. Why should she have to lunge at an armed shooter when we have the 2nd amendment?

Not only is God not being allowed in schools, guns not being allowed in schools are serious, serious problems and the result of the absolute utter and total insanity of the people of this country.
