Quit yo jivin'- CT is infested with nothing but Democrats. Newtown is big Dem town - look it up.

Liar.

You libs are the ones going postal lately. For example:

According to an affidavit unsealed on Tuesday, five Cleveland men—at least three whom are self-described anarchists—were recently arrested for plotting to blow up a bridge as part of the May Day protests, according to the Daily Mail.

Exactly right!

No many how times gun nuts repeat lies and try to spin, the truth is that there would be far fewer deaths if people couldn't easily get their hands on extremely powerful weapons.

I have three guns in my house and everybody I know in TX and OK also has guns. I don't know ANYBODY, including President Obama, who objects to people having a gun for hunting, hobby target shooting or personal protection.

But none of those uses justifies individuals having access to assault weapons.

Without assault weapons, madmen could not kill as many people as quickly as madmen now can kill, as today's shooting proves.

In a situations like the movie theater shooter, Columine, and Virginia Tech, relaxation of medical confidentiality laws might have led to some intervention before the crimes. All have at least some element of previously recognized mental issues
But that would be at the cost of individual privacy and civil rights, so what is the balance?
Got me, how 'bout we just quit making fu cke d up Americans? If I'm not mistaken, killings like this were pretty unheard of prior to the social upheaval of the 60's. What changed if anything? Maybe its long term exposure to fluoridated water:-)

Neighbors described Adam Lanza to ABC as “odd” and displaying characteristics associated with mental illness.

Gunman’s mother was teacher’s aide at school and not a teacher as previously believed, authorities say.

Yes, liberals & Democrats should not have access to guns.

Rich Democrats in action.

In a classroom of small children, with no armed presence in the school, the killer could have used a muzzleloader.

I'VE OWNED AND USED GUNS FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. I'VE GOT A RUGER RED LABEL OVER AND UNDER 20 GA, AND IT HAS SO MANY HAPPY MEMORIES FOR ME IT'S LIKE ONE OF MY OLDEST FRIENDS. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? IF THEY AGREED TO COLLECT ALL THE GUNS AND DESTROY THEM I'D TOSS IT IN THE PILE HAPPILY AND WITHOUT MUCH REGRET.

A study in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery found that the gun murder rate in the U.S. is almost 20 times higher than the next 22 richest and most populous nations combined. Every one of those nations has stricter gun control laws.

And then there's this fact: add together all the gun deaths in the 23 wealthiest countries in the world and 80 percent of those are American deaths. Of all the children killed by guns in those nations, 87 percent are American kids.

Please don't tell me that if only the staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School were also armed that this would have ended well. It might have ended differently, but concealed weapons in the teachers lounge is not the way we want to raise our kids.

Jose Luis Nunez had a handgun in order to protect his son. The 4-year-old accidentally shot himself in the face with it in Houston on Tuesday. Joseph V. Loughrey had one for the same reason. His 7-year-old son Craig died on Saturday outside of Pittsburgh when that handgun accidentally went off while the boy was getting into his safety seat in front of a gun store.

And that was just this week. The same week that the NRA proudly tweeted it had reached 1.7 million "likes" on Facebook.

We cherish individuality in America. We see raising children as no one else's business, and we have never managed to band together as a "parenting" bloc. It is time. Guns are a parenting issue and we need to control them in the name of the children who died this morning. Even more, we need to do it in the name of their mothers and fathers.

So cry today. Comfort your kids. Curse, and pray. Then pick up the phone, a pen, a keyboard, or your checkbook and make your demands heard. All day and every day. But most especially today.

Sure tough guy, y'all showed your teeth in the last election ... or were those dentures?

Any of you morons who think you're going to keep your guns once the government decides it wants them are treating yourselves to some macho, Red Dawn like fantasy. Dare ya to tell the crew of the M1 tank parked in your yard to "fck off".

That's what happens when you let the government get this big and this powerful.

WHAT? WHAT NONSENSE IS THIS? GEORGE WASHINGTON OWNED PEOPLE AND HAD THEM BEATEN TO DEATH OR SOLD WHEN THEY DIDN'T LISTEN TO HIM CLOSELY ENOUGH. THOM JEFFERSON KEPT A 13 YEAR OLD SLAVE AND USED HER LIKE HIS PERSONAL COCK SOCK. COUNTLESS WOMEN HAVE BEEN LITERALLY BEATEN TO DEATH AND RAPED BY MEN WITH NO CONSEQUENCES, EXCEPT PERHAPS THE ARREST/EXILE OF THE WOMEN. THERE WAS MASS KILLING ON AN ASTOUNDING SCALE IN THIS COUNTRY SINCE ITS INCEPTION. WHAT OF THE NATIVE AMERICANS? COLUMBUS HIMSELF MURDERED AN ENTIRE RACE OF PEOPLE, 400,000 SOULS. MARINES TORTURED AND KILLED THOUSANDS IN THE PHILLIPINES AND CENTRAL AMERICA. WHAT ARE YOU SMOKIN'? THE GENERATION OF THE SIXTIES ENDED ANOTHER GENOCIDE WHICH UNNECESSARILY KILLED 3 MILLION PEOPLE. THEY ARE THE LAST AMERICAN GENERATION TO DO SOMETHING USEFUL WITH THEIR LIVES IN 50 YEARS. SO NOW WHAT'VE WE GOT? A PROFESSIONAL MILITARY THAT FOUGHT THE LONGEST "WARS" IN AMERICAN HISTORY, LOST THEM FABULOUSLY, AND IN DOING SO KILLED MORE PEOPLE THAN THE HANDFUL OF DICTATORS AND THEOCRATS HAD MURDERED TO INSPIRE OUR WRATH IN THE FIRST PLACE! ONE THING HAS CHANGED, HOWEVER: THE AVAILABILITY OF CHEAP, SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPONS DESIGNED TO DO NOTHING BUT DELIVER DEATH.
