None of that information about the Shooter or his Mother has been confirmed, as of this Morning!
Considering the publications you generally quote from, I'm not surprised, but I'm guessing you're citing my questions rather than my statements.

However, take the information that is confirmed and then try to convince me that Adam Lanza is typical of the general population of the US in temperament and/or mental health. There do seem to be some that feel that the "common" people are thugs, criminals, and vicious animals barely held in check by social convention and the legal system, hence they need to have their tools of self-protection removed.

I guess technically you are right, he hasn't been tried and convicted of any crimes. All the more reason we need to make being crazy a crime. It would be easier to control nuts than it would be to control guns.
There was a time when there were institutions for the care of those who were unsafe for the general population. Back then it was no big deal for teens to bring shotguns, rifles, and even handguns to school. Funny thing is that none of the students went "postal" and started shooting everything in sight back then. You might also consider Switzerland where one out of every two people own a firearm, and check to see what their crime rate is. Is there a direct causal relationship here? Could be.

If we insist on taking firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, we only make them targets for criminals. To then say that no one has the right to "take the law into their own hands" is either incredibly ignorant of how this country was designed to function, or is the product of the government school system, as the just power of government and all its branches comes from and originates with us {read the Declaration of Independence}.

What good does it do to take our fear and loathing for criminals and their actions out on law-abiding citizens? It does no good at all, but law-abiding citizens are less likely to retaliate with lethal force than a criminal, therefore they make a safer target {isn't that called bullying?}. With this general mindset in place, reinforced by cowardice and fear, it would be a simple matter for any government to wage a "friendly" war of attrition against their own populace and bring them more completely under subjection and subservience to the governmental authority structure.

What good it does might be a matter of perspective. Think about it.

A man is seeking to join the Camden Police force. The Sergeant doing the interview says: "Your qualifications all look good, but there is an attitude suitability test you must take before you can be accepted." Then, sliding a pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, he says: "Take this pistol and go out and shoot six illegal immigrants, six drug dealers, six Muslim extremists, and a rabbit" The man being interviewed asks, "Why the rabbit?" "Great attitude," says the Sergeant. "When can you start?"

Why can nuts go buy assault rifles at the Wilson County Fair Grounds Gun Show. George Puckett, a certified crazy, had 30 guns taken by the WCSD. Gun Judge Hamilton gives them back. Old George shoots him self in the head, just a flesh wound and gets locked up in crazy house. He gets out and goes and buys more guns at Gun Show. Be careful out on Vesta Road. What is even crazier than George, TN gave him a gun carry permit even though he had been in the mental hospital.

If theres any truth to this, you should see if the local tv stations wants to do a W TF broadcast. Might save ole crazy anyway.

This thread is unbelievable. The last 100 plus comments have not said one word that has anything to do with the TN.Hunting Rights Amendents. And these people vote. Is there anyone on here that would want to share the woods with a NUT with a gun with that kind of attention span? I agree with most of the pro gun commenters. I own several guns myself. I also agree with most of the commenters concerning the Conn. school shooting, but these are two different subjects. Before someone tells me that if I don't like what I see on this site,. don't read it, I went on this site to review any law changes in Tn.Hunting laws. Read many,many, intellegent comments the first few pages than it turned to SH%#. Some of you need to back up and start over and if you ever go hunting with a high powered gun, tell yourself over and over what your there for. Otherwise you will be shooting cows,dogs or shaking brush and hoping for the best. Hell you may even end up on the lake shooting fish.

Can rights be legislated? If there's a difference between rights and privileges, then the answer must be no by default. I think most thinking people would agree that no right is absolute, but where the government is concerned no right is violable.

Do we have the right to "hunt"? We have the right to feed ourselves and our families, and in this context we have the right to hunt and/or garden when this right does not violate the rights of others {property rights}. When the government "confirms" this {or any other} right, it is actually taking control of that right in the minds of the population so that it can either remove it or make it mandatory later {this concept goes far beyond feeding the family, hunting, or other issues under attack today}. As a result, this discussion has grown into the larger context, with children and trolls attempting to distract from the central issues at hand.

If you disagree that means you have a point of view that needs to be expressed. Those who would tell you to read elsewhere and not participate are probably just children {yeah, there are quite a few on here}, but some of us like a lively engagement.

According to state officials, the fiscal impact of the proposed amendment is a one-time increase of $20,000 in local expenditures in FY 2010-11. The cost covers a one-time publication cost for local governments in fall 2010 for each county election commission to print the text of the amendment in a newspaper. Officials based the estimate on recent election publications
Just hog wash too cost the taxpayers more and confuse hunting laws more bureaucratic red tape it seems to be a bill that would allow animal populations destroyed to get more hunting licenses sold and children interested in guns, hunting and killing.
I will Vote NO! Too help save the animals for future generations to see and enjoy their Beauty and love!
Teach your children to love see the beauty of the animals not kill them.
I love them to, with cornbread and taters.

I wonder how many people who post anti hunting statements on here eat chicken, pork, beef, fish, lamb, etc. They are animals too and are probably raised for your dining enjoyment in a pen, never free, and under much less than ideal conditions. If hunters did not contribute to animal conservation, there would be widespread disease due to over population. For the record, I do not hunt, but I feel that those who enjoy this should be allowed to do so without all the negative comments.
