At Sunday’s memorial for the victims of the Navy Yard shooting rampage, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray blamed the tragedy on too many guns in this country. …

According the District of Columbia’s 2012 Annual Report (page 25), the homicide rate in the nation’s capital has dropped by 53 percent between 2008 and 2012.

More like drowning in a sea of criminals who laugh at the judicial system. Liberals think midnight basketball and establishing a meaningful dialog is the answer for thugs and drug addicts who terrorize innocent citizens.

Nope, it ain’t too many guns, it’s too many psychotic drug-addled Obama supporters.

These guys will get to show us how it's done when we cut New England loose and send all these guys packing to their new liberal paradise posthaste -- with nicks in their ears and perpetual tattoos on their foreheads, and an everlasting interdict of exile on their heads.

Time to split the sheets. Time for these guys to go, forever.

No.

Washington DC is drowning in a sea of thugs and criminals, but the country is not “drowning in a sea of guns”.

In fact, I do not think ENOUGH law abiding citizens are stepping up and accepting the responsibility of owning and bearing firearms for self protection.

Too many people, especially those in large cities, are far too reliant on the police to “take care” of them.

Residents of large cities are typically liberal, i.e. the non-criminal types. The criminals are simply criminal and apolitical, and are overdue for punishment.

That's because they don't like America and never have. So many East Coast people are still stuck halfway between America and Old Europe, the Europe of authoritarianism and socialist ideologues.

Their ideal is best represented by East Germany, but they won't/can't admit it.

More like drowning in a sea of warp minded liberals and their sicknesses.

How about drowning in a sea of illegal alien baby rapists who murder their victims? Or inbred muslims who can’t control their urge to murder?

Your psychotic thinking that inanimate objects get up and do things all by themselves. Unless in the hands of a liberal on drugs!

Their lefty community leaders encourage the destruction of the family; after all, it is Marxist doctrine straight out of the Communist Manifesto. Once the inevitable fruits of that folly start falling, they shift the blame to a scapegoat.

I could have twice as many guns, and they still would not be causing any crimes.

Well if we’re drowning in a sea of guns where were they when they could have taken out the Navy shipyard shooter in a matter of seconds and why was the SWAT team who HAD weapons that could have taken him out pronto ordered to stand down, smarta$$? Was it so he could shoot even more for maximum media effect?

Mayor’s got it backwards. The verb he was looking for is ‘floating’.

Those areas of the country with the lowest crime rates have the highest guns per capita.

When will these a$$holes who *attempt* to control us understand that we have an epidemic of mentally deranged people in the general population who are there because our "feel good" politicians have largely shut down the mental institutions as well as the mechanism to have said deranged people committed!!!

We're drowning alright, but the 'sea' ain't made up of guns.

The loathsome creature needs to have a gander in his own backyard, and a hundred just like 'em infesting this nation.

And the mirror, too.

Unfortunately, we are drowning in a sea of breathing Leftists. The solution is going to be VERY unpleasant.

I used to believe that it can't happen, here. I believed that even Libs could see the ultimate logic in spending no more than you took in, that there is a limit to how much "control" you can inflict on an economy before it starts to crumble, that people are by nature stupid, lazy and evil, and they aren't going to get better any time soon.

We're drowning in a sea of books with a library in every town and a book seller in every mall.

We're drowning in a sea of churches with steeples rising from every valley.

A "sea of guns"? Really? I like it.

Let’s be truthful, it’s more like a sea of black criminals. Over half of all violent crimes are committed by blacks, mostly against other blacks, but a disproportionate number against other races.
