Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, George Soros, hundreds of thousands of military members, the Patriotic Millionaires (an actually group, you can look them up) and many, many others.

The only thing I have ever said about race and the Republican or Democrat party is that there were probably about as many that voted for Obama because he is black as supported McCain or Romney because they are not black. You want to go further than that, go for it.

I see who pays the government by state. Red states are takers for the most part and Blue states are producers for the most part. Have you looked at how poorly a farm job pays? MOst agricultural jobs are eligable for public assistance. You are free to talk about the lazy farmers just wanting stuff for free. Heck, they pay the workers like crap and then they take farm subsidies on top of it.

Red states also tend to be the ones that are less educated. Want to discuss that?

Was a dime spent this year that was not approved by the Republican House of Representatives? And you can't blame the President for asking for stuff and they were just approving his request. We know how many votes the Presidents budget got. So anything spent was the idea of the House.

I, personally, would propose making all guns illegal. But I'd accept semi-automatics and hand guns being illegal. Until that day comes, and it will come, I want real background checks for all purchases and a paper trail of purchase documentation for all guns and a national database of purchases and ownership.

I also think we need to seriously address the lack of mental health diagnosis and care.

Fortunately, the US Constitution protects us from such foolishness.

Not without an amended Constitution - and good luck with that.

Already the law. ATF Form 4473.

Now you're getting warmer. How about mandatory reporting to LE by shrinks and medicos and a national database of mental defectives and emotionally disturbed people? You know, the potential killers?

Interesting - but irrelevant.

Let us know when you have RELEVANT data for nations with population > 300 million.

I, personally, would propose making all guns illegal. But I'd accept semi-automatics (assault weapons), large ammo clips and hand guns being illegal. Until that day comes, and it will come, I want real background checks for ALL purchases and a paper trail of purchase documentation for all guns and a national database of purchases and ownership.

And what exactly do you think that will do, mate? Law breakers will still have guns. People will be unable to protect themselves from lawbreakers. What do you mean by "real background checks"? You do realize there are already such measures in place. Right?

That's .003 PERCENT of the population. More people die from diarrhea, but that doesn't make for good cable news or hand-wringing Socialist policy- making.

Well, I doubt you will see handguns becoming illegal. You can background check and paper trail until the wolves howl at the moon but none of that would have stopped the tragedy that happened last week. When someone is he11-bent on killing others and then offing themselves, they couldn't care less if the police know who's gun it was. You see, criminals will always find a way. On the other hand, perhaps if the principal (at least) had been armed, the outcome may have been very different.

Just a few more facts, StT,
89 Americans killed by automobiles every day.
40 of those 89 Americans were killed by automobiles where alcohol was involved.
205 Americans killed by alcohol abuse every day.
1214 Americans killed by tobacco use every day. 134 of those Americans were not smokers but were killed by second hand smoke.
2150 unborn Americans killed every day for convenience.

These figures far exceed the deaths caused by guns yet the libs don't want to talk about these.
