Revolvers and bolt action rifles take more time to fire and have less ammunition in the magazine. These characteristics do not restrict gun owners using guns for self defense but allow more potential victims to escape in attacks when used on unarmed citizens.
What's your point?
Most .22 rifles that are semi hold qver 15 rounds , wanna ban those too ?

Career criminals aren't the ones shooting up schools. Guns used in these crimes are guns that are legally owned and readily available. That's what loony right wingers don't get.

NBC’s Pete Williams reported Saturday on the Today Show that Adam Lanza was allegedly involved in an altercation at Sandy Hook Elementary School the day before the shooting.

Attempting to answer the question of why Lanza may have chosen this particular school, Williams stated that it has been confirmed now that Lanza’s mother did not work full-time at the school, despite previous reports. However, officials told NBC that on Thursday, December 13, Lanza was involved in an “altercation” at the school which involved himself and four other staff members. Of the four, three were murdered in yesterday’s shooting spree and the fourth is currently being interviewed by federal and state investigators.

Williams said though we still don’t know the “substance or nature” of the argument, the staff member’s testimony might be an “important piece of information” for discerning motive in this
case.

So whats your point , over half of this country wants their rights uninfringed and we happen to be the ones with the guns , from your posts I just think you are trying to encite , nothing more .

Nobody needs a revolver or bolt action rifle or any other gun in their home. Both the Sandy Hook shooter and the Portland Mall shooter stole their weapons from "law abiding gun owners". If the "law abiding gun owners" did not have guns in their homes, neither of these tragedies would have occurred. It's time for America to get rid of all these guns.

Our kids are not afraid to go to school because of the threat of gunmen. They're afraid to go to school because their teachers have no recourse to inter-class bullying, stultifying boredom, or mandatory curriculae. Their peers are time-bombs, their 'counselors' are bean-counters, their teachers are automatons, their Principals are giant walking feet of clay, and their parents are oblivious.

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world.

Trust me - a coalition of 'average citizens' in my neck of the woods, will be a well-regulated militia in a matter of days, if not hours. We don't just own guns here, we practice using them. And if nothing else, the people on my block (there are 3 families) are a community. We know what it means to work together.

We're not afraid - we're circumspect, observant, and prepared.

If you had to guess the biggest lobbiers in the country, who would you say? Insurance companies? Oil and gas? Big Business?

No, no, and no again.

From 1998-2012, pharmaceutical companies and health products have led the political lobbying charge in the US by spending over $2 billion over the period. Their total lobbying spend in 2011 alone was $241,481,544.

Barack Obama was the single biggest recipient in 2008, with $848,000, followed by Hillary Clinton with $639,429, indicating strong Democratic leanings in the presidential race. Significantly less was received by the Republican candidates--first Mitt Romney who got $410,411, and only then John McCain, receiving $347,375.

Pfizer, the biggest donor year after year in the business, split its campaign contributions evenly between the two parties that year.

We should all be unarmed so we can all be victims of criminals who do not obey laws anyway, do you have any idea what kind of response time cops average when called , unless they are sitting on scene they will be at best minutes away when seconds count , hell this nut killed those babies right next door to a fire dept. and fired over a hundred rounds , if one legally armed citizen would have been on scene it had the potential to change the whole entire outcome but it was a gun free zone , did the shooter care that it was a gun free zone ? I bet the parents are all for a armed citizen on site now , you nor anyone else has the right to disarm me and deny me the right to make sure I can protect my babies on my own , I have never depended on the govt. for a goddamned thing and I damn sure aint gonna put my familys saftey in the hands of corrupt politicians that I wouldn't trust in a shithouse with muzzles on .
