California politicians? Is there anything more stupid and nauseating than California politicians?
They may have good intentions but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
They too stupid. Too stupid. They too stupid. Too Stupid.

Oh no... another 'assault rifle'. Oh... wait... no it wasn't. It was a shotgun, usually used for hunting. Wake up, America! Stop this ruse for gun-grabbing you're being mesmerized into by politicians using tragedies that gun control laws won't prevent.

They make it sound like a school shooting rather than a couple of gang kids mad at each other. Don't know what it actually is but the kid told the teacher trying to talk him into putting the gun down, I don't want to kill you, I want to kill so and so but the article did not say who so and so was.

More proof that we need President Obama to quickly move on VP Biden’s recommendations coming this Tuesday. Even that much more disgusting is the fact that the school had armed security on campus… it is time to get rid of the gun nuts and pass legislation (or through Executive Order) enact gun safety measures.

The NRA is right. This whole Biden farce is about gun grabbing. There is no part of the Constitution more plainly expressed then the 2nd Amendment. The right of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed. The Democrats will use anything, and anyone, school children if necessary, to brainwash you into giving up your guns. Stupid, stupid people to reelect those people.

GUN CONTROL ! GUN CONROL! GUN CONTROL ! GUN CONTROL !

The democRATS and the media are having another synchronized orgasm.
They love these shootings,
because it gives them a platfom to try to take guns from law-abiding American citizens.

They never call for gun control when the shooter is a black gangbanger, an illegal Mexican, or a muslim - because they are considered politically correct.

WE NEED:
GHETTO CONTROL.
ILLEGAL MEXICAN CONTROL.
MUSLIM CONTROL.

It's now at a point where two-bit politicians like obama/biden/schumer et al are as deranged as holmes, loughner and lanza.
Just like holmes, loughner and lanza these smelly politicians are targeting people who are minding their own business and going about their day to day lives and it's time for that demented sht to end.

I'll tell you what missie, I'll Relinquish my guns if Obama Relinquishes his - and tosses his copy of Saul Alinky's "Rules for Radicals" and the Communist Manifesto into the Ash heaps of history......

According to Huffington Post and KTLA website, there was not an armed security guard on site. On the day of the shooting it was reported that the guard was snowed in.

Ya wanna protect our kids in school where for nut jobs it's like shootin' fish in a barrel? Why complicate the issue? Put armed guards with automatic weapons in them! Simple solution!

If the 2nd amendment was so clear then there wouldn't be all these court cases about guns.

Obviously it's NOT clear when 4 of the 9 SCOTUS justices don't think an individual right to own guns exists.

Where did the kid get the gun?
How is it no one noticed him taking a shotgun out of the house?
How is it no one noticed him bringing a shotgun into the school?

Every time there is another shooting it puts another log on the fire for gun control.

The owner of the shotgun needs to be prosecuted as well as an accessory to the crime.
