<quoted text> Well, "Pete", there isn't a lot I disagree with in your post...but I want to point out a couple of things.
First, our country has ignored the mental health aspect of healthcare for much too long. Health insurance coverage for mental health is not on par with coverages for physical health, and until next January, 40 to 45 million Americans have no coverage for either. Then we wonder why we have unstable people living among us.
Second, you correctly pointed out that fully automatic weapons are banned in this country. When was the last time that one of these shooters used a fully automatic weapon ? This SHOULD say something about the effectiveness of a ban.
Third, The only purpose in banning high capacity magazines would be to force a shooter to change magazines often to create the same amount of carnage that he would now without doing so...all this would do is add seconds to the time required....BUT those seconds CAN count, and might give someone an opening to react.
Finally, I don't think it is the gun itself, so much as the look of the gun that makes these "assault" style weapons attractive to these mass murderers.
Obviously, nothing you or I posted....and nothing the government does will stop a nut from obtaining a gun and killing people if they are Hell bent on doing so. The best we can hope for is getting them some help for mental issues before they reach that point, and if that fails, limiting the damage they can inflict.
This HAS to be balanced with the rights of all Americans to own guns.....a tall order in a free society. Like you, I don't have the answers, I WISH we did....but the one thing I do KNOW that we can't solve this problem by arming teachers.
Since you agree that nothing will stop a nut from obtaining a gun and using it, why are you willing to give up 2nd amendment rights for nothing?

<quoted text> I think you are building a bridge too far. YEARS ago, my grandfather told me that when automobiles first came on the scene, there was no law requiring a license to drive one...when states began to require drivers licenses, did that mean they were fixing to take them away ?
When they began requirig owners to register their vehicles, did that mean they were fixing to take them away ?
Those licensing and registration requirements weren't done because government wanted to take them away...they were done to provide a modicum of safety by trying to keep unsafe drivers off of the road, in response to damage done by irresponsible drivers, and to allow a person damaged by a driver to track down the owner of a vehicle that had caused damage. IF responsible gun owners could police the nuts with guns, and stop the carnage done by irresponsible ones....there would not be any need for more regulations. Unfortunately, they haven't been able to...so far. Now a lot of the public is fed up with the Newtowns etc. and some are demanding SOMETHING be done....what still remains to be seen, and we all can help to craft that "something" or we can hollar the sky is falling and throw that "socialist" label around.
Apples to Oranges.
The Constitution does not guarantee the right to keep and drive automobiles.

What kind of a Society have we become that the "Gun Owners Rights" advocates would not show this Grieving Father some Compassion, Respect, and Understanding of his Views and why he would naturally feel the way he does. Whether you agree with him or not, to "heckle" this Man, is one of the most dispicable and repulsive things I have ever heard of!
When you "LOVE" your Guns more than you can sympathize with a Fellow Human Being in a time of one of the most devastating tragedies they will ever suffer in their entire Lives, and understand why he feels the way he does...YOU have a REAL problem and so does our Society!

Sympathize the way you did with MG when you asked if she was the drunk driver that killed her child? Sympathize the way you did when you told her that her child did not die because you could not find the death certificate when you didn't even know the child's last name? You have little room to comment on this.

<quoted text> Let's see if I have this right....
Government is only going to take those things that you have a "right" to, when they require licenses and registrations (things like guns).....but they are NOT going to take those things that you do NOT have a "right" to...(things like cars...and the right to drive).....OKAY now I've got it !!
IF you do not want the government to do something about nuts with guns....and it is not responsible gun owners place to police them...then I suppose we should just resign ourselves to school shootings like the one in Ct......
Oh I forgot....the answer is making teachers into armed guards instead.
Driving is not nor has it ever been a "right" it is a "privilege" that you must earn. You have already conceded that nothing will keep the "nuts" from getting guns. So why do you keep arguing to have the "rights" of responsible legal gun owners taken away?

Why do you make such long Posts, telling about somebody else's views and actions? Aren't you capable of making up your own Mind and having your own views and opinions, and expressing why you have that viewpoint and/or opinion?
Yeah, Nuh, you should post links to Liberal propaganda sites like she does.

The difference is, Pete Ole Buddy, that I post those News Articles when nobody is having a conversation or expressing any view or opinions....or haven't you noticed?
They are for information purposes and they are all from Reputable Sources. But, if One is unable to decide an issue for themselves and have to wait for Fox Fake News or some other Propaganda Source to tell them what to think and what opinion to have, what difference is it going to make, anyway. If you and People People like you, weren't so afraid of losing your "control" of your little "Followers" that you use to do your dirty work, why would you objct so badly to anybody posting any News Article?
I'm assuming that you're a Teapublican...isn't that what you said...because Teapublicans want desperately to keep their Followers in the dark and as uninformed as they possibly can. Otherwise , they might lose the control they have over them...and "control" is what Teapublicans are all about and the ONLY thing they are about! It's ALL about them and their "Ego"...their wants and needs, in their minds! Well, good luck with that, is all I can tell you!

<quoted text>
Ok, I guess I might as well supply some proof of what you are really doing. You say you only post links to reputable news sources. The above link is to a Liberal News Blog called "Mother Jones." They describe themselves as follows:
"Here's where we're coming from: We believe all people should have equal opportunity in life, that all children should be able to go to good schools, and that everyone should have health care. Call that what you will–we're not insulted by being called left, liberal, progressive, whatever.(We've noticed, though, that the people who resort to name-calling are often just trying to distract the public from their own misdeeds.)"
This came from their own website. They also point out one of your misdeeds with this description of themselves.
The article you are referring to was written by Tim Murphy. I will let you do the research on your own, but Tim Murphy is a liberal blogger.
Based on these facts, your statement that you only post from reputable news sources is incorrect. Everyone knows what you are attempting to do, but you actually think you are smarter than most and think no one knows. Again, you would be incorrect with this assumption as well. I said before hypocrisy is not a virtue, but lying is simply a mental weakness. Maybe you can overcome this one day.
"(We've noticed, though, that the people who resort to name-calling are often just trying to distract the public from their own misdeeds.)"
And Pete, who is the biggest name-caller on this forum?

Nothing can shut her up as long as she has breath. It's clear why everyone in her life left her and she sits all day, everyday, living her shattered life through rose colored glasses. No one can stand being near her. Topix is her complete life and a handful of fools are her friends. A sad, sad, lonely life. Oh well, enough about her. Who cares? Lol. How's everyone this windy morning? Be careful out there today.

The sad part is most of her "friends" are just made up personalities of herself.

You have a very good point. I stand corrected. The cheese does stand alone. Now and forever I'd guess. Thanks Tracy for pointing that out.

Yep! Pitiful, isn't it? Totally void of any human compassion or feelings for another Person'e incredible emotional pain! I just don't have words to express how sorry I think that is nor can I imagine what kind of Posters I think the Ones are that thought anything about this whole situation is funny, less of all that Father's pain. My heart just breaks for him and all of those families.
Sassy, you just described a Sociopath......or pretty close to it.........and they have little problem getting a military assault weapon or one of those neat fast firing pistols. Hell if they sold a railgun, I don't think a Sociopath would have any problem buying it either.
