You're beyond delluded, you're a moron. Even if it only cuts the mass killing rate by 90% it'll be a victory.
For you to suggest people will 'build their own' assault weapons proves you to be among the truly ignorant.
It's the fact that there are guns everywhere that's the problem. These murderers get their guns from their families, or buy them at gun shows with no backround checks.
America has the worst gun murder rate in the civilized world. 32,000 dead each year.
Wouldn't have anything to do with the easy access to guns, both legal and illegal, would it??
Nations with gun bans have the lowest gun murder rates in the world. DUH
In spite of your stupidity, they don't 'make their own'.
Here's some facts for you, who sounds as stupid a woman as Nancy Lanza was. She paid for it with her life.
Guns deaths per 100,000
1. Chile 0.06
2. Japan 0.07
3. Azerbaijan 0.07
4. South Korea 0.13
5. Qatar 0.18
6. Hong Kong 0.19
7. Mauritius 0.19
8. Romania 0.20
9. Singapore 0.24
10. United Kingdom 0.25
...
64. USA 9.0
The USA ranks with Somalia as the worst gun death rates in the world.
Makes you feel real good about your 'freedoms', eh??
How many of those countries are free and not oppressed ?

<quoted text>Wrong terminology lily. Florida was at one time the main source for weapons (handguns) that were illegal elsewhere__NY mostly. Times change, I think it's Virginia now, maybe Arizona too, both those states allow unregistered private sales at gun shows.
In this CT case it was very sloppy reporting early on, shameful actually given the towns proximity to NYC and "news central." Hours went by before it was learned that it was Adam rather than Ryan and that mom wasn't a kindergarten teacher.
Hah, when the authorities are slow with the facts the news folks start making shyte up.
Ok, thanks for the correction, but you got my drift. When people buy guns at gun shows, they can skip the background check, right?
Yes there was a lot of misinformation in the beginning; what a horror. I read that the father learned of it from reporters waiting at his house, imagine that? BTW, that Norwegian got only 21 years for that crime. Unreal.

Most illegal guns are purchased in Florida, right? Did you read about that Miami cop couple caught selling 600 illegal guns?
She taught her son to shoot and he turned her own gun on her. What irony. I still can't get over that she wasn't at that school, the original story that he went there to kill her. They've subpoenaed the email records and phone records, the story will come out eventually. What a horror
Whattttt?

People who have guns at home shouldn't tell anyone about it, especially if there are teenagers around; many breakins looking for guns that will commit crimes and kill people.

I can't believe Obama is using a tragedy like this to forward his political views.
It was a hospital in Chicago. A baby had survived an abortion and was crying while laying near the operating table. It was so disturbing to the operating room staff that the doctor in charge ordered a nurse to remove the baby from the operating room and put it in a closet until it died. Eight hours later the baby died from the injuries it received during the abortion.
This so disturbed some members of the Illinois legislature that a bill was drafted making it a crime to murder a baby that survived an abortion.
Yup. You guessed it. Obama uttered the most useless word that commonly comes out of his mouth: "present".
More ignorant lies from the coward who fled the thread after Rmoney's stunning defeat at the hands of our GREAT PRESIDENT!!

Looks like the Dweeb is still in denial.

Hey Dweeb: It doesn't matter how much you lie and make racist comments.

Obama won, and it was his last election.

And he will rock your world between now and 2016. Get ready for high seas and heavy rolls!!

You are impotent concerning this, as well as everything else.

Was thinking of the Norwegian mass murderer who rented a farm and started ordering fertilizer. Who knew?
Watched a documentary on the meth problem in Wyoming; they outlawed the sale of the chemicals needed to produce it; so now they get it from Mexico. People will always find a way.
As I said, most murders occur in a rage, drunken stupor etc and can't be predicted. Like the JAX loud music shooter, he was probably already pizzed off about something or half in the bag and then bang-bang.

Wow lily, that guy is gonna have a real tough go of it in prison.

The CT case is different, kinda like a bunch of real bad decisions all heaped on top of one another and over time by young Adam's family and then by Adam. Parents come to believe that their children will outgrow their problems and most of them do. Adam didn't.

Romney-Ryan in 2016!

House Speaker John Boehner has proposed raising tax rates on people making more than $1 million, a source familiar with the talks told Fox News, in a development that could signal at least some movement toward a deal with President Obama.

According to the source, the latest offer is not being rejected, but there are still issues remaining and there is a serious effort to work out the difference.
At issue are expiring Bush-era tax cuts that would automatically vanish on Jan. 1 for virtually every income tax payer if Congress and the president don't act. Steep budget cuts are also scheduled to kick in, unless Congress and Obama agree to forestall them with other deficit reduction measures.

Support the Tea Party, elect more Democrats to the Senate

Tell me where you live. I'll wake you up while you're sleeping.

You'll never suspect that I'm inside your home until you wake up and see me standing over you.

You nitwits think everyone will announce themselves and waits for you to get your gun??

You are that stupid. That's why so many homeowners get killed with their own guns.

----------

""The claim that keeping a gun in the home, on balance, increases the risk of homicide victimization rests most heavily on a case-control study by Kellermann and colleagues. These authors identified victims of 420 homicides occurring in the victim's home in 3 urban counties during 1987 to 1992, and then located controls in the same neighborhoods, who were matched based on sex, race, and approximate age. After statistically controlling for 5 other homicide victimization covariates, they found that persons living in a household with a gun were 2.8 times more likely to be a victim of homicide.""

Not all gun shows, most states currently require background checks even at gun shows. Virginia and Arizona do not for private sales and that's a problem particularly in Virginia.

Politicians are afraid of the NRA__that's the real problem.

Barack Obama is not afraid of the NRA and never has been. Hah!
