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.

The POTUS is proof!
A token “conservative” speaks.
House Poodle of the New York Times
Yes to repeal the Bill of Rights is to do it massive. That is unless he is advocating an unconstitutional action of lawless tyranny, then just call it a tax and the USSC will rubber-stamp it.
Logic, history, math... none of these are the strong points for the Left, LOL. 300 million guns is too much to control... so the 30 billion rounds that are fired every year are the easier option? LOL
“...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”, unless you are a POS communist progressive democrat, then it is okay.
FR is an echo chamber. This was a watershed moment in US history. 10 years from now when all semi’s are illegal you’ll be able to point to this moment in time.
David Brooks,of course,will always have all the protection he could ever want...including firearms that *he* carries or ones carried by those *paid* to protect him and his family.
DAVID BROOKS, RIP.
The mainstream news media causes these shootings.
These idiots or psychos do it for the fame the news media will give them.
The news media makes these shooters household names.
Even if an idiot doesnt do it for the fame and attention , the idiot does it because it saw it on TV or somewhere in the news media and knows learned how to to it by watching the endless news coverage. Advertisers know that repetition and just exposing someone to an idea or suggestion will get them thinking about it. the news media know this and are purposefully doing it to cause more shootings. the news media are programming these psycho shooters.
Then the evil news media uses the killings they created , the victims blood to further empower government , to take away our individual rights and freedoms as is their goal. The media do it on purpose as they know other idiots see the massive coverage of the shootings and will copy. The media are pure evil.
Lets not give this idiot the attention he sought. Lets not give the media want the media want, but instead turn it on the media and expose them for what they are doing. The news media are democrats/socialists and they want to enslave us.
Algore did not win the presidency in 2000. Thank you, Gun Control!!!
For the same reason that Nazi Germany banned guns in the '30s. Because right now, the second amendment is the only thing standing between the 'rats in Washington and We, the People.
Obama has already tried buying up a lot of those bullets. Sending them by the millions to various federal agencies.
These people are serious about destroying gun rights by any means necessary.
You're massively right.
S'ok. I'll still have mine or be dead.
Yes If these media goons should call for any banning then these media idiots should call for banning the media as the media is what caused these shootings.
These psychos or idiots shoot people because of the fame that the news media gives them . The media makes these shooters household names. Even if they don’t do it for the fame and attention they never got in their lives they do it because monkey see monkey do .
If the balloon does indeed go up, I don’t suppose the patriots will waste time holing up in a cabin or plinking at the low level nazi goons. Rather they are taking names now and will probably go on the offensive. In a Civil War, the MSM propagandists should be at the top of the list of enemies domestic.
Easier to get the guns that law abiding citizens have than to get some street hood give up his gun.
