DAVID BROOKS, PBS NEWSHOUR: ....I think if we're going to control guns, we really have to do it massive.

I think I'm all for getting rid of the assault weapons and machine guns and all that tough, but if we want to prevent something like this, we have to really think seriously about drastically reducing the number of guns in our society, and particularly -- this is an old Patrick Daniel Moynihan idea -- the number of bullets. It is very hard to control 300 million guns. The bullets are a little easier to control.

I dare you to try to get a gun out of the hands of a Chicago gang bangers, who this year alone has murdered 100 children..come on David, go ask your typical gang banging scum to give you his piece.

That would be a GREAT experiment! Tell the feds, prove you can make gun control work by disarming all the gang members in Chicago, NY, LA, DC, STL, Miami, etc.

Nothing to worry about.

It's not just Congress that could eventually be the problem. As soon as a conservative USSC Justice retires or dies and is replaced by even a mild leftist, which wouldn't be hard to pull off, we are going to see some interesting cases come before them and we probably won't be happy with the results.

I think we will see not a Million Man March on DC but a MANY Million Man and Woman March on DC. Imagine millions of people descending on DC

We didn't see these people at the polls, what makes you think they will show up for this?

They won't, it will be left up to people like us to protect THEIR liberties.

Pathetic really.

This is a country full to the brim of utter, blithering idiots.

That was made very clear to most of us on the morning of Nov 7, 2012

No doubt about that.

It is also clear in a number of other ways as well.

I have no respect for, or concern for, or compassion for idiots, and I am not going to listen to them in any way at all.

Never ever going to happen. Nobody has marched on the District of Corruption yet and Congress approval is in single digits? No one marched when the ineligible clown was reelected to a second term of what is to be many terms. NO MARCHES, NOT NOW NOT EVER. AMERICAN SHEEPLE ARE SOUND ASLEEP - HOW CAN YOU ARGUE OTHERWISE?

never hear them talking about prohibition....
bet more folks die in alcohol related deaths than gunshot wounds

there’s no personal responsibility anymore, it’s always someone or something else’s fault.

“the MSM propagandists should be at the top of the list of enemies domestic.”

AGREED! It would be a cleansing that is LONG overdue, because they have EARNED the wrath of the American people.

The Media are Enemy #1.

To: Tailgunner Joe; All
BAN THESE DRUGS - and do it MASSIVE

http://www.ssristories.com/

These facts are known by the politicians.

These side effects have been acknowledged by the drug companies.

One begins to wonder if the fascists in our gov’t - who know the first step in taking over a country is the necessity of stripping citizens of their guns - didn't go to the drug companies and make a deal to develop these drugs - for this purpose. The fact that these gun-controllers, from the president on down, were loud and clear in demanding gun-control, using this tragedy for their agenda, while those little bodies were still in that school speaks volumes!

Yes, such evil exists. It operates on such high levels because decent people can't conceive of such raw evil.
We need to acknowledge it.

We need to let our politicians and media KNOW we know - and know THEY know - and demand they answer us individually.

BAN THESE DRUGS...and those that demand gun-control. They are even more dangerous.

Sure hope to heaven you’re right, & that Obama doesn’t start signing a blizzard of EOs banning guns.

I predict a big gun ban announcement when he visits CT to speak.

Gotta act while the story is still hot. It's not like the MSM and his zombies are gonna call him out for being an oportunistic ghoul.

Brooks is a POS neocon who used to work for the Weekly Standard, where “national greatness conservatism” (ie national socialism) is all the rage. Glad he is revealing his Marxist roots.

I imagine that with this trial balloon floated, the demand for ammo will go through the roof at least until we have a patriotic American back in the White House.

You would be correct. Went yesterday and it was weapons, ammo and high-cap mags.

Why do I feel our government is creating these killers with mind control?

If you find out let me know. I have the same nagging thought.

Machine guns? Who has fully automatic rifles other than every Arab in the middle east. And that includes the 4 year olds.

There is now a tax on each bullet, that tax being $10.00 a bullet so your bill is $40 tax plus $20 for each bullet which is $80 for four bullets which is a total of $120 for the four bullets. Thanks for being a customer of your Federal Government Bullet Issuing Department.

Consider this act, the same as attempting to take away our guns, and we should respond accordingly.
