For someone who thinks the government is coming for your guns, you evidently don't realize that they now know you own these.
They've always known that. I don't own unregistered weapons. You see, unlike Obama's criminal base that slaughters as many people in one city as are killed in a full-scale war, I comply with the law.
That's one of the differences between me and the people who live in areas that vote 100% Obama.(Like it's even possible that tens of thousands of people can vote and not one pushes the wrong button by mistake.)

You must have meant "increase" the instances then.

Is this an insight into how you guys think about politics too? Saying one thing but meaning another?

Good News
No politician could be better suited to the challenge of passing federal gun control legislation than Biden. Over the past four decades, Biden has been one of the most consistent and effective advocates of gun control and violence prevention legislation. In 1994, Biden shepherded the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act through the Senate, a near miracle six years in the making.
After Biden wrote the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act in 1988, Republicans quickly filibustered, blocking the bill for four years. He steered "the Biden crime bill" through the lengthy filibuster by negotiating with Republicans and making revisions. "Every single line in that bill was written with every single major Republican a part of it," Biden said in a September 12, 1994, interview on the Charlie Rose show.

The discussion is about guns, which I agree that the assault weapons ban should be reinstituted; however, the underlying issue is mental illness.
Should we begin institutionalizing those that we a deem a danger to society before they do anything?
Sure. All dictators in recent history have followed that practice.

No, dipshit, it meant that the killer had access to a more powerful killing weapon.
My God,you people are dumb.
If his mother did not own those guns, where would he have obtained them???
Furthermore, you dumbasses think just because some one one is armed that they are magically protected from having the gun taken away.
I'm thinking the odds of the teacher losing that gun is a lot higher than that teacher stopping a person with an assault like weapon.
thinking may be to much for you, Its not working out so good..
Try this.. if a retarded syco that stole weapons and shot his own mother in the face came into your home to kill your children would you have a better chance of protecting them with or without a weapon of your own?
A little advise.. don't look at the lib web sites for your answer,all that is needed is quick rational thought to get it right.

Covering up a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 for political gain is perfectly acceptable to democrats?
Is that what you're saying? You deflected the topic so I'm not really sure.
Bother you that Bush didn't send the troops to Syria then you idiot? What's the big deal...Iraq, Syria? Trillion here. Thousands dead and wounded there....no bigdeal to dopes like you.

Wasn't it inside the State Department that the intelligence report stating that the attack was a terrorist attack was changed to the lie we heard for two goddam weeks from Obama, Biden, Rice, and every other goddam liar in th4e administration we see?
So, since it's unarguable that the State Department will lie, what on Earth gives you the notion that anything from them can be trusted as being true?
They are proven liars, and you reference them.
You're an ignorant dupe.
The Jerk-In-Chief realized that he needed to have some kind of "official" report, an "investigation" to quell his critics. So he slapped one together. No one is held accountable. No one is to blame. Especially not him. And Hillary gets a virus, falls and suffers a concussion just before she was to appear before Congress. Gee. How unfortunate.

Now let's all go home and ban those nasty guns!

You're out of your mind. The entire country is in an outrage.
You are right in that he doesn't have to worry about getting re elected; therefore, he can try to do something about this and be a hero; be the one who has the guts to stand up to the NRA. Enough is enough.
Obama is using the CT incident as just another bargaining chip in his plan to bring down the American economy by attacking successful people.

You said "case closed" and chose not to consider the evidence and testimony. I see that you still don't. What was going through the mind of Adam Lanza? You are certain you know? I've no idea what his state of mind was, his determination, his connection to reality or his motivations. You do? You can? You are only certain of your own conclusions.
In case you don't keep up with events, Lanza killed himself before he would have to face an armed adversary.
And, Lanza chose the most defenseless victims he could find.
I can tell you a little about his state of mind. He was insane. If you don't come to that conclusion after knowing that he slaughtered defenseless 5 year olds, then you shouldn't even be commenting here.
Let's review some of the facts:
He was allowed to seclude himself and not interact with society.
He spent his life playing video games pretending to slaughter images that presented no real threat to him.
He slaughtered people that presented no real threat to him.
He killed himself before he would have to face people that presented a real threat to him.

Who cares about the details of his thoughts. It's obvious he was violently insane. If you're going to digress, then I'd suggest a digression in the direction of how he became detatched from society and why he chose the most defenseless victims he could find.
It should be very obvious he had no intent of confronting anything that wasn't defenseless.
Just the presence of an armed guard would have prevented this.

Rather "won't".

So here's my award to you:
