note. I stated asaults,your data shows murders and did you notice that in 2010 acording to your chart there were only 350 comited with a rifle.don't look like a ban on asault rifles would do much at all

Sen. Scott Brown says he now supports a federal ban on assault weapons
"What happened in Newtown where those children were subject to that level of violence is beyond my comprehension. As a state legislator in Massachusetts I supported an assault weapons ban thinking other states would follow suit. But unfortunately, they have not and innocent people are being killed," Brown said. "As a result, I support a federal assault weapons ban, perhaps like the legislation we have in Massachusetts."

Not one gun owner has lost one gun right under Obama, that's what was said, and that's part of the reason for massacres like last week.
The 2nd amendment doesn't give citizens the right to ANY weapon they choose. Are you really that stupid?

As I let it be known before I'm from the hood in New Jersey, 30 min from philly & 2 1/2 from NY & I grew up around guns so when used properly I have no problem with it. The problem is everybody has their own interpretations on proper use. There in lies the real problem! The adam lanza's of the world. The people on here with such big opinions 1st off are scared of their own shadows which is why they need a gun to walk to the corner store & 2nd, never shot someone or seen someone shot & if you have then you will agree. When shootings happen in. broad daylight, your not expecting that at all. Ones first instinct is to find something to get behind something or go the opposite direction. As I said it's a whole other story when the target starts shooting back. But this is how anti gov't ya'll are. Ya'll are not buying guns for protection. Ya'll are buying assault rifles in fear of an american revolution 2012! Far from a racist, so if you don't fit the discription I'm not talking to you. But you racist white folks that think you want a war in america. Lets get it started. Just know game dont shoot back!

not like we haven't been hearing that NRA non-starter for the last four years.

but we all know the NRA needed cash so they could throw it all away at trying to get 'conservatives' elected, and the dupes came through on the back of nothing.

and you wingnuts wonder why Obama won the election? no one wants a crew that subsists on: just trust us. the fact checkers don't matter; running the country. no one wants stupid that thinks it's smarter than you are.

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, et al., PETITIONERS v.
DICK ANTHONY HELLER

Justice Scalia delivered the opinion of the Court.

"Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose."

sorry 'I' didn't ignore the polls. i'll try to dumb it down next time.

so who did you think was going to win the election? or maybe i should ask first...are you a Dick Morris fan?

so i'm not really too upset about You telling Me I don't have any common sense.

"Although we do not undertake an exhaustive historical analysis today of the full scope of the Second Amendment, nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms."

None of the weapons Lanza carried into the Sandy Hook Elementary School are for hunting. They are for quickly and efficiently killing people. Not deer, not quail, not even big game like elephants – the Bushmaster, Glock and Sig Sauer are military and police weapons intended to take down human beings. They are weapons that show no mercy; they use ammunition that destroys tissue and internal organs – ammo that is expressly made to drop people in their tracks. Repetitively firing these bullets into human flesh will literally macerate and tear apart the human body. Think about it: They are not used to hunt game animals because they are so destructive to tissue. Connecticut Chief Medical Examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver, knows of what he speaks, and he said the bullets “are designed in such a fashion the energy is deposited in the tissue so the bullet stays in.” Dr. Carver described the wounds that killed the children and teachers at Newtown as a “very devastating set of injuries.”

Gun advocates say these weapons are for “sport.” I want to repeat that:“Sport.” Well, I suppose that’s true if you’re sport-hunting humans.

More children were murdered by the feds at Waco than in the massacre in CT. Where was the outrage then?
