Lily, with all due respect, one of the biggest problems radical liberals have is wearing their emotions on their sleeve without thinking with their heads.
Having genuine empathy and compassion is possible without losing your ability to reason and think rationally in the process.
Nothing could have prevented the tragedy in Newton. Maybe if you would be more quick to look at what might be causing our younger generation to snap instead of chipping away Americans' rights who aren't comitting crimes, your outrage would be more credible.
It's a programmed kind of head empathy most of you liberals have rather than heartfelt empathy.
It's a knee jerk politically motivated reaction kind of empathy that isn't very convincing, as much as I hate to say it.
Okay, you keep coming from the angle that the proposal for new gun legislation is Infact, a run on law abiding citizens 2nd amendment rights. How about this, if your lawfully possessed weapon is stolen, & used in a crime, you as well as the criminal will be held responsible, so if it's murder, you will receive life as well! You folks think being lawful allows you the right to be irresponsible. It's your children that's ,stealing your guns, & you think somehow you're not responsible. It's your family & friends that's stealing your guns, & you think somehow you're not responsible. It's your weapons that winds up in the hands of criminals over 50% of the time, but somehow you feel you're not responsible. There's a law that says if a person you're with, whether you know or not, commits a crime (murder or robbery), you're held responsible by association. So should it be for your carefree attitudes regarding gun rights. If y'all knew you would be held responsible, I'm willing to bet, you would insert your own personal gun laws, in fear of the consequences. Empathy is an emotion felt with the heart. One can't think empathy, & because your minds in front of your spirit, you don't know the true meaning of the word, or don't know how to apply it in your life. These are people who lost their children, & love ones just pleading with America to make it harder for guns to wind up in the hands of the unintended, & y'all somehow turn this into Obama wanting to take your guns. Y'all should be ashamed!

"I'm sick and tired of people on Capitol Hill that I've known for a long time that I've respected, I'm sick and tired of them insulting my intelligence, acting like I am stupid enough and you're stupid enough and 90% of americans are stupid enough to believe that this bill would lead to a national registry! I hear it all the time! Hey, the bill itself puts people in jail for up to 15 years. If they keep these names and start a national registry. It's offensive. It's stupid. And, Mika, you know what? In the long run, all of those people that voted for a more dangerous America are going to pay at the polls. Mark my words. This is going to come up and it's going to hit them in the face."

Co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed with Scarborough. Later, he turned to his own party, adding:

“Mark it down, this is going to be a turning point in the history of the Republican Party as well. And let those out there chattering, let them chatter away all they want to and scream like hyenas.… This party that killed this background check yesterday — this party is moving toward extinction. A new Republican Party is going to replace it. And this is going to be a vote that people will look back on and say,‘That party, that extremism, that was unsustainable.’”

Statement on U.S. Senate Defeat of Manchin-Toomey-Schumer Amendment
Chris W. Cox

Today, the misguided Manchin-Toomey-Schumer proposal failed in the U.S. Senate. This amendment would have criminalized certain private transfers of firearms between honest citizens, requiring lifelong friends, neighbors and some family members to get federal government permission to exercise a fundamental right or face prosecution. As we have noted previously, expanding background checks, at gun shows or elsewhere, will not reduce violent crime or keep our kids safe in their schools.

The NRA will continue to work with Republicans and Democrats who are committed to protecting our children in schools, prosecuting violent criminals to the fullest extent of the law, and fixing our broken mental health system. We are grateful for the hard work and leadership of those Senators who chose to pursue meaningful solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems. The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small
person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great
equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the
equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a
Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were
determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that
Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all.”–Ronald Reagan

Why I'm for the Brady Bill
By Ronald Reagan

"Anniversary" is a word we usually associate with happy events that we like to remember: birthdays, weddings, the first job. March 30, however, marks an anniversary I would just as soon forget, but cannot.

It was on that day 10 years ago that a deranged young man standing among reporters and photographers shot a policeman, a Secret Service agent, my press secretary and me on a Washington sidewalk.

I was lucky. The bullet that hit me bounced off a rib and lodged in my lung, an inch from my heart. It was a very close call. Twice they could not find my pulse. But the bullet's missing my heart, the skill of the doctors and nurses at George Washington University Hospital and the steadfast support of my wife, Nancy, saved my life.

Jim Brady, my press secretary, who was standing next to me, wasn't as lucky. A bullet entered the left side of his forehead, near his eye, and passed through the right side of his brain before it exited. The skills of the George Washington University medical team, plus his amazing determination and the grit and spirit of his wife, Sarah, pulled Jim through. His recovery has been remarkable, but he still lives with physical pain every day and must spend much of his time in a wheelchair.

Thomas Delahanty, a Washington police officer, took a bullet in his neck. It ricocheted off his spinal cord. Nerve damage to his left arm forced his retirement in November 1981.

Tim McCarthy, a Secret Service agent, was shot in the chest and suffered a lacerated liver. He recovered and returned to duty.

Still, four lives were changed forever, and all by a Saturday-night special -- a cheaply made .22 caliber pistol -- purchased in a Dallas pawnshop by a young man with a history of mental disturbance.

This nightmare might never have happened if legislation that is before Congress now -- the Brady bill -- had been law back in 1981.

I meant to tell you the other day that I live just off the James River here in Hampton Roads. The history of this nation's early life on is all around me.

I'm thinking that if you took 100 8 year olds & gave them the option of a MCDonalds cheeseburger w/ fries or a healthy green salad that 80% would choose the McDonalds.

Eed would running screaming through the streets how the Cheeseburger w/fries was better for them since more chose it.
