Senator Richard Blumenthal said on Sunday he wants to revive gun-control legislation that was rejected by Congress in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, saying it could have helped prevent this weekend's deadly California shooting spree.

How about reviving the House Un-Americans Committee again, instead?
This murderer was yet another Leftist Loon (redundant, I know).
“...saying it could have helped prevent this weekend’s deadly California shooting spree.”
Please, Senator. Tell us precisely HOW your anti-Constitutional legislative proposal would have helped, in any way, to prevent this madman from committing this senseless act. Inquiring minds want to know.
Maybe he would have been more serious about the knives and the car?
This is ridiculousness that is palpable by the numb.
If they say it, it’s true.
Every word of the free speech of these agenda-driven, narcissistic, totalitarians needs to be examined and their shooters, too.
This is the problem, bloviating idiot politicians thinking that gun control will solve the problem, not mental health failures in government. He also stabbed some to death and drove a vehicle at others, another dope added to the pile of dopes.
So does he want to add knives to his legislation too since three of the victims were stabbed to death?
You get the feeling that Dems anticipate with bated breath every shooting, so that with enough blood to put on parade they can resurrect their Mahdi of Gun Control from his crypt and disarm the public for all time.
One was killed by BMW.
Do I have this right?
Richard “Stolen Valor” Blumenthal wants to crap on the Constitution on Memorial Day?
Yes, and we all know how many people are killed by cars as compared to guns. And while he’s at it, how about the requirements to obtain and keep a driver’s license? Seems to me there are more than a few mentally ill driver’s on the road.
That is what he does best, sadly.
my point exactly. Will the .iberals ask for knife control, since he stabbed 3 people??? How about Beemer control since he drove a BMW?
about 100 people a day die in car crashes in this country. If the media reported all of those with great zeal, or based on a political agenda, that’s all we would talk about. And we would talk of banning cars because they are so dangerous.
Maybe he should revise his legislation to center on mental health and leave the gun control issues out. Maybe even add a little paragraph or two about drugs and medications. Could he be overlooking some critical facts such as:
Most of these nuts seemed to be under medication, had pre-existing mental health issues, and were as crazy as a March hares to any sane person (or victim).
Most seemed to lead “privileged” lives without much supervision. They found the time and money to obtain the guns and ammo, bombs, knives, cars, and other weapons necessary to perpetrate mayhem. Much of the mayhem had taken months to plan in great detail.
Most want to be recognized as achievers but in reality they know they are failures. They want their 15 minutes of fame and are willing to resort to violent means to get it instead of earning it through their own efforts. Left wing liberalism teaches them “we are all equal, but some are more equal”. Reality teaches them otherwise.
Most, with their insane thoughts and perversions, go undetected in the mainstream as left wing liberalism is now considered “normal”. In defence of the psychiatrists, what could they do, as they have become “liberal nuts” too. To do otherwise, they would be one of the “conservative right wingers”.
Yeh, blame it on guns because in same weird way guns are defenseless and cannot defend themselves. They are only one of many inanimate weapons that can be used by humans for good and evil.
With digital money, it makes no difference what they are paying, or the govt would simply raise the price of food to the point where people sell everything to survive, read God's word starting in Genesis 39 see how Joseph got all of the land, all of the animals, all of the people.
No, gun control, gun confiscation, is not real, it has done nothing of substance but raise the price of guns so that the really poor in cities cannot afford them. Gun control is keeping guns out of the hands of poor blacks and other poor.
Here’s a novel gun control idea:
Since violent crime is committed overwhelmingly by Liberals, let’s ban Liberals from having guns.
