St<quoted text> what kind of rifle diid he have? And do you honestly believe a coward that picks helpless children as his victims would have stood up to an armed adult or even made the atempt. Highly unlikely. Cowards allways pick soft targets that don't shoot back.
My bad for 2wr long gap in my response, but he had 2 handguns a glock & a 9 sig sour. He also had an AR-15 bush master. Almost all of these mass shootings/shooters weapon of choice was the AR-15. The dude in the mall last week, the Aurora movie theater shooting, I'm not sure but I believe the Columbine shooting also had an AR 15. Now do I think if an adult was armed, would he have still done what occurred. Yes! Look at the bank robbers in San Francisco. The entire police force responded & they still walked & drove casually, all the while letting off AK-47s & when the last guy realized he couldn't get away, he shot himself in the head. Thats the key component. Somewhere along in their lives these people lost their fear of consequences, therefore have no fear of dying. Infact already made up their minds that their lives are going to end on that specific day at that specific time. They're hell bent on accomplishing their mission and an adult armed is only an optical, not a deterrent. In these situations nothing is black & white except the shooter. The same reason that it's impossible to win a war against kamikazes, it's impossible to stop these such acts once they start because while your thinking rational, these people have tunnel vision, all they see is the finish line. Not to mention the fact that until you've actually been in that type of situation, all you can do is say what you'd do. Reality is most people would freeze up. It's a whole other world when the target is shooting back.

We all know it. But apparently, I'm the only one who will say it. And I will not back down from saying it.
Legalized abortion is a moral blight on a civilized society and we can never expect anything good to come of it.
In fact, we lost our way precisely in the late 1970s - when abortion became the law of the land.
We are, in fact, reaping what we have sown.
So all the mass killings, terror attacks, economic problems, can be linked to abortion??

Ya used to have Retard Fred here to agree with your anti abortion stupidity, but he left after the election.

Fred knew he'd lost and left the field quietly.

Too bad you didn't get the message. You've left for a few days, or threatened to leave, several times over the years.

Yet, in the biggest loss ever, something you swore would never happen, OBama was reelected. That was a sure sign for you to leave.

Take the hint. Leave.

You've been proven wrong about every issue. Yet you're too blind to take the hint and leave the thread.

Now you've reached the point where even the wingnuts are calling you a fool for you focus on social issues, which have cost the Republiclowns dearly.

There are other threads on Topix where youd fit in better than here.

Go find them.

Despite everything it seems hard to believe. I hope that some answers can be uncovered for the closure of the families as to what made him go to that school. There were some reports that he had been the day or so before the incident, not sure if it's true.
Also read that she had at least 12 guns.
I hope they ban assault weapons, the fact is that if there were no guns in the house, he may have stabbed her to death and killed himself and those innocent kids wouldn't have been massacred.

More talking thru your azz, eh??

And you know what Obama is thinking based on your racism, your stupidity, or both??

Thank God there are true Americans, like those in Newtown, who appreciate the President of their NAtion taking the time to grieve with them.

May God bless them.

Enough already, if one person hadn't had an abortion there might have been 21 victims. That's how stupid you're getting.

Anyway, you must have missed all the violent upheaval of the 60's huh? Just too inconvenient for your agenda?

She was a gun nut and survivalist. That's why they divorced.

I'm sure she never thought her son was capable of such violence.

But she had guns all over the house, and a troubled son with no social contacts outside the home.

All the signe were there, but a mother often doesn't believe them.

Would have been ok if he killed Mom and himself, but the school makes no sense, even now.

Nancy never worked at the school, in spite of earlier reports. I don't see the connection.

It's not just the assault rifles. There are just too many illegal guns in circulation. Don't know how to end it, but we have to try.

His speech was warmly accepted and appreciated, I'm sure, by the families and the nation.
However, past presidents have simply taken to the microphone and comforted the families and the nation. Guess that's what I expected this time too without the fanfare.
What, do you think there was an "applause" sign you friggin' idiot? I already told you, the first responders got the same reception, you think they demanded the fanfare too?

You can change your names, Killtaker, but you can't hide your ignorance and stupidity.

All the things you mention so stupidly are not designed to harm life.

Only a gun is.

So stop the stupidity. Even if it is all you're capable of.

Wonder how many members of the Supreme Court witnessed an abortion before their ruling?
The initial law surrounding Roe v Wade was quite restrictive.
Not anymore. It's what happens when you open the door just a crack. Once it's open, there's no closing it again.
What changed? Cite it or STFU.

I agree, and now the time is ripe, young children massacred brings it home to every parent. Everyone should write his/her congress person.
There's got to be a reason he went to that school, yet to be uncovered. Makes no sense.

She's just mad cuz if Bush arrived there, somebody would probably throw a shoe.
She's so consumed with jealousy that the President is loved.
I really think she should write letters to those families and tell them she disapproved of their applause. Sicko.

That IS an interesting link, and absolutely refutes the leftist claim that the problem in our society is gun ownership (since EVERYONE carried guns on their hip back then).
Of course, that fact will be glossed over by the leftist nuts.:-)
Actually, on a town by town basis gun control could be pretty strict. You can't trust Hollywood for your history.

I will actually agree with you for once; retards (and I DONT mean mentally-handicapped people) with guns are a huge menace. Problem is, you cant punish responsible, non-retards by banning an inanimate object. That energy would be much better spent thinning the herd of such undesireables. We could do this via legal sterilization of repeat violent offenders. That is a GREAT starting point; no need to have those creatures reproducing...
So you're saying you were born this hateful, bigoted, and "undersireably" wrong? The right is so sure that nature rules nurture that you insist every fertilized egg be carried full term so you can use them for target practice later.(I bet you're also one who needs an assault rifle, Kevlar, and a 100 round clip to feel safe, but in your state--of mind--there might actually be zombies.)

why don't you try the method I outlined above first? You have a gun, so try sucking all the sperm out of your own ck first.
