Was it this gem:
"Cowboy movies and war movies depict history and reality. That's not what we're talking about."
How 'bout this? Why even bring it into this discussion:
"Neither movie was focused around guns."
What movie glorifies this:
"It's the culture of bullying, child suicides and children killing children without even needing a gun."
Ok, I'm bored already. That's why I didn't pick it apart to begin with.
Notice she was too embarrassed to cite her source. Why is it that right-wingers think there's only one Amendment in the Bill of Rights? It doesn't occur to y'all that if there's only one why'd they call it the "2nd"? And how is it that supposedly "less government" right wingers want the government to raise their children?

This is what he said: "Violent video games are identical to military-quality training devices They are murder simulators. They're not just murder simulators — they are mass-murder simulators because the child drills, and drills, and drills, and drills, to kill every living creature in front of him, until he runs out of targets, or he runs out of bullets."

Funny you should bring up that phrase "show me your company I will tell you who you are".

Obama said we will know him by who he surrounds himself by.

Has anyone taken a good look at who he surrounds himself by?

Google it. Pretty odd company he keeps in the White House.

First of all, where would we be today if the Minutemen had not had guns and rifles to defend their indepencence?
Secondly, the oldest surviving gun has been dated to 1288. Europeans, Arabs and Koreans obtained firearms in the 1300s. Turks, Iranians and Indians had firearms by the 1400s. The Japanese acquired firearms in the 1500s.
Just think back to the last century. Were mass murders even 50 years ago of the same intensity and magnitude as they are now becoming?
I'm trying to tell you it's the culture.
Stop it, this has been going on since the dawn of man. Just think when Cain killed Abel he wiped out a quarter of the population, no one to date has reached that lofty goal.

We need to apply a more rigorous evidence-based view upon gun-control as we do in other fields.

There is NO evidence that essentially gun free zones (pearl High-MS, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, malls) have done anything, but enable killings of more people. It is even more tragic when CLEARLY they attract mass killers. If you do a ban on weapons like Mini-15, how will this deter criminals from getting weapons. Money and the criminal world will cheer and more physical assaults will follow.

Otherwise, guns were taken away from people in nations like Nazi-Germany, communist Russia and China in order to ease the broad oppression and totalitarian powers.

Otherwise, what about Chicago? 26 dead kids ain't but a tiny drop in the bucket here. How's THAT gun control working?

Again, let liberal states like IL, CA and NY ban guns and raise taxes. Then all liberals can live as they preach and so can us others at other places.

Ppoliticians themselves realize this as well. Note that the only shooting if note the last years that was NOT in a gun-free zone was GG shootings. U guess politicians still want protection, just like Michael Moore.

As always with democrats- Do as I say, give me your money and otherwise not as I do..
