Violations of the 2nd amendment.

"The bills require background checks for private and online gun sales and ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds."

Precisely how many lives will this save and how will it be enforced? How many at Columbine or Aurora would have been saved had these laws been in effect? Please tell me. I dare you. Show me how many would not have died.

"Democratic Rep. Rhonda Fields, who represents the district that includes the theater, said the governor had signed "common-sense legislation that reduces gun violence in our communities by keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, domestic violence offenders and the seriously mentally ill."

How does this keep guns away from criminals or angry family members? How does this keep the mentally ill from obtaining guns? Why have all the existing laws not kept these groups from obtaining guns? Please tell me. Remember to show your work. Laws like these already exist in other states. To date no one has been able to show that even one life has been spared. But please do so if you can.

These new bills are nothing more than fluffy feel-good legislation that does nothing but give these politicians a reason to pat each other on the back and tell each other how wonderful they are.

This brings to mind another question for the extremist lefties. It relates to gun control. Their standard mantra goes something like this:
"If it saves one childs life, it is worth it".
The question is this: How much is that worth? How much are you willing to spend to save a child's life? A million dollars? A billion dollars? A hundred trillion dollars?

And while the goal of saving children's lives by trying to eliminate all gun deaths is honorable and makes for great PR, it is unattainable.

About 1500 children die from guns each year (in the USA).

About 16,000 children die from hunger or hunger related causes every day!(world wide)

That's about one every five seconds.

Roughly 30,000 children die from preventable diseases every day.(again, world wide)

About 16,000,000 kids go to bed hungry every night in the USA.
16,000,000!!

These facts rarely if ever hit the front page of the papers or are even discussed. There is no "outrage" in Congress or from families affected by these numbers. There is no "outrage" in the press or long interviews with the people affected.

So, in light of these facts, if you really care about the children, don't you think you need to rethink your priorities?
