A ban on assault weapons, magazines w/ more than 10 rounds, and stricter registration requirements won't harm anyone.
you had a bigger fit when Obama said the Social Security Checks were going to bounce...

You believe wrong. In fact it's just another one of your lies. Amazing how I can just drop any time and find you spreading your lies . They didn't compromise up to more than $600000 you liar.
And just leave the word fact out of your vocabulary. You haven't a clue what it means bobo.
Heard they had compromised raising taxes on those making more than 600,000 - or 800,000 - wasn't sure which. Probably should have been more clear I wasn't sure which.

Excuse me.

Obama's plan is going to create more problems no matter what happens. Then republicans will be blamed. That's the plan.

Agree. Sometimes you make sense.
Any move to forcibly confiscate guns, however, would have disastrous results.
Disastrous for those who resist it.

to carry a legal concealed weapon or not...

"...If those states which did
not have right-to-carry concealed gun provisions had adopted them in 1992,
approximately 1,570 murders; 4,177 rapes; and over 60,000 aggravate assaults
would have been avoided yearly."

You forgot to mention Connecticut has one of the strictest gun laws in the country.
Which simply proves that gun laws don't work. Only a total gun ban will work. It worked in England. It can work here.

Sports videos, like Madden, don't turn those who play into athletes who can compete at a high level. Guitar Man or whatever the eff it's called doesn't prepare the players for being an opening act for Beyonce or Justin Beiber. Those games require A. a parent with the money to make the purchase and beyond that __good eye thumb coordination to play well__a big screen TV while not necessary is a huge plus.
War game or fast driving game videos are no different than the original "pong," the object is to win. Same way here babe, we compete for some weird kinda therapeutic reason, cept maybe for Homer who just enjoys talking to strangers when he's not grinding something.
Young Adam was batshyte crazy__Mom ignored that hoping that the problem would somehow solve itself.
It didn't.
A study in the March issue of Psychological Bulletin, a journal of the American Psychological Association, shows that playing violent video games increases violent thinking, attitudes and behaviors among players. And it does nothing to promote positive social behaviors.

Look up Violent Video Game Effects on Aggression, Empathy, and Prosocial Behavior in Eastern and Western Countries: A Meta-Analytic Review. You can read the study yourself.

Again, we're not talking about sports and fast driving video games.

The one thing Hillary and I agree on is it absolutely does take a village.

Our children are the future. The future belongs to all of us.

In other words, you have no comeback when slapped with reality.
Even Radmussen reports Obama approval at 57%.
Republicans 36%.
America agrees, you suck.
Come back when you Tea Tards can win a Presidential election.
Until then, no one gives a sh@t what you believe.
In other words, you watch polls and possess nothing beyond a Lynch mob's sense of justice and morality.

That's why I said you are still at the JHS Basketball Game screaming your pubescent lungs out and have yet to experience those growing pangs of maturity.

Tell your mother to fasten your Safety Seat in the back seat. You could be in for a rough ride, Boy.

The Surgeon General on violent tv programs...

"In 1972, the Surgeon General issued the following warning on violent TV programs: "It is clear to me that the causal relationship between televised violence and antisocial behavior is sufficient to warrant appropriate and immediate remedial action.… There comes a time when the data are sufficient to justify action. That time has come."" (Steinfeld, 1972)"

"...Over 130 studies have been conducted on over 130,000 participants around the world (Anderson et al., 2010). These studies show that violent video games increase aggressive thoughts, angry feelings, physiological arousal (e.g., heart rate, blood pressure), and aggressive behavior. Violent games also decrease helping behavior and feelings of empathy for others."

Assault riffles have not been part of our landscape.
There is a culture of violence but without rapid firing gun he would not have been able to shoot each child three times?
Peace
I've never understood why military-type assault rifles are protected under the second amendment.

But I'm sure someone will explain it.

Tighter regulation on gun control is only part of the solution.

But it's only the tip of the iceberg. The problem goes much deeper than the weapon of choice in comitting these violent acts.

There is way too much pain and suffering inherent in life, for our design to be 'intelligent'.
JMO
Pain and suffering is caused by man's rebellion against God. We were also created with a free will. Hearts turn to stone. Love is the antedote. The hardest of hearts are changed by it. God is the source of love.
