Here there Cowboy..... Tell the 10+ Children killed every day in Amerika's Urban Cesspools that have been under Demokrat Control for 75 years.....Those Cesspools that Re-Erected your Messiah. These Cesspools are the issue, not the Patriotic Americans that value their Constitutional Rights..... I know this is to simplistic, and that you need to "present" as a Smart Guy.

The Grown ups laugh at your ignorance!

By the way, the slaughter of the "White" Suburban Children in Newton CT pales when compared to the number Children killed every day in "Amerika's Culturally Diverse" Neighborhoods, who are your kindred spirits as "Barry Backers" in 2012 and 2008 Erections.

YOU and YOURS need to have your Constitutional Rights rescinded, not the Patriotic Americans that are RESPONSIBLE and Free!

Government does such a fine job of regulating cars that only 18,000 were killed in 2006 in DWI accidents. Only 275,000 were injured in DWI accidents.

Why not have guns regulated like cars?

"18,000 were killed in 2006 in DWI accidents. Only 275,000 were injured in DWI"

But, These people "Paid their Fair Share" in taxes at the Pump, and in their Property Taxes to make the roads safe. So what does a horrific death where the human being is beheaded, mutilated, and dismembered matter. Death by a Drunken Demokrat on the road, here and there, really does not matter.....It makes the Sheeple uncomfortable to face what the risk of their Drunken Lives are to the innocent in America today.

Ignore the facts. The "Facts" cannot be encapsulated in a "Talking Point", therefore the Sheeple cannot grasp the point, and serve no purpose on the Demokrat Plantations.

You want some common-sense gun control? Here you go.

1. All firearms must be purchased from a federally licensed dealer. No private sales. If you want to sell your privately owned gun, you must do so through a federally licensed dealer. All firearms must be registered, no exceptions. This would be retroactive, with a grace period for all guns currently in someone's possession. Part of the registration process will entail a ballistics test,which would then go into a national database.

2. More in-depth background checks and require a gun license. Currently, as long as you've never been institutionalized or deemed mentally unfit by a judge, you're considered mentally fit to own a gun. IMHO, part of the process for obtaining a firearm should require a note from a doctor or psychiatrist confirming that the applicant would not pose a danger by themselves or others. You would have to renew your license on a regular basis. If you become deemed unfit to own a gun, then your license would be revoked or unable to renew. If you commit any violent crime at all - assault, domestic violence, etc - you automatically become ineligible to own firearms.

3. Closely monitor all gun and ammo sales. We already closely monitor purchases of things like fertilizer and Sudafed. Firearms and ammo should be no different.

4. Taxation of all gun and ammo sales, with the taxes going to fund mental health treatment.

5. Banning large-capacity magazines. There is absolutely no need for anyone to have a 30-round magazine.

These are just a few gun-control ideas that would not infringe on anyone's "right" to own guns.

Give us back automatic firing weapons (full auto) and silencers in all 50 states and you have a deal on items 1-4. Number 5 I will need for my silenced MP5 sub machine gun.

No deal? Then shut your pie hole.

You still have not said why almost every instance of gun violence happens where there is virtually no resistance?
They happen there because there is no one to stop them. As soon as a cop or other armed person shows up, the cowardly shooter takes his own life. There is a distinct pattern here.
sry no, so the man who shot up the military base ?????? didnt stop him, and he was in the militray, now to answer you question why almost every instance of gun violence happens where there is virtually no resistance?
because all of us do not have guns and if you libs have it your way no one would have guns to protect themselves of something that we can not stop, so your going to tell me the fellon that kills his wife and kids could of been stoped by harder gun laws lololololol or half the killing you are not talking about and how they happen could of been stoped by harder guin laws, what about the guuys who rob banks, ect ect ect ect what you keep talking about is funny for the fact you keep talking about it and do not realize there is noth9ing you can do about this instance or other instances that happen, for instance what is a gun law going to do if i go home and kill my wife and kids??? please tell me???

At Ft Hood, personal weapons and service weapons are required to be placed into the base vault. There are fewer guns on the streets of Ft Hood than there are on the streets of downtown Minneapolis.

Perhaps you should spend your Last Days in deep prayer and asking for Forgiveness from God and your Fellow Man, before you "Go to the Light"?

Umm, people who kill with guns generally do so on purpose, and drunk drivers generally kill accidentally.
When driving a car down a road and you hit a patch of ice making your vehicle spin out of control killing someone. That would be an accident, if the drive is sober there will be no charges.

If you are drunk driving and swerve into opposing traffic killing someone that is vehicular homicide a felony.

If you get into a vehicle and deliberetly drive into a pedestrian killing the person that would be premeditated murder, just like killing with a gun.

Take guns away from everyone and they will find a different weapon.

The cost of highways are financed through user fees. So we'd certainly want to finance the cost that guns cost society each year through user fees as well.
Let's take the cost of armed guards for our schools.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there were 98,817 public schools during the 2009-2010 school year.
A typical salary with fringe benefits and employer taxes would be somewhere around $40,000 per year for an armed security guard.
98,817 times 1.25 (you'd need more than 1 guard per school to cover vacation, training and sick days) times $40,000 equals 4.94 billion dollars per year.
The are 270 million firearms held by civilians in the US. 4.94 billion divided by 270 million gives an annaul tax of $18.30 per gun per year.
Of course, I didn't add anything in for uniforms and additional insurance needed for having armed guards on the premises, and administering the new tax.
Now we'd certainly want to pay out a fee for each shooting death. There were 12,632 homicides in the last year I could find stats for. I'm not sure how you value a human life, but let's say one million per life.
That would give us 12.63 billion per year, or $46.79 per gun per year.
Now we are at $65 per year per gun user fee.
Next we could factor in all the additional police officers required by having all these guns floating around.
Owning a gun could become quite expensive...
Wrong, so wrong. First of all, many gas taxes get diverted to "other projects" that have NOTHING TO DO with auto/truck transportation, like STUPID light rail and bike paths.

Second, those who purchase guns, ammo, and other related accessories pay SALES TAXES, which could be used to strengthen our PRISON SYSTEM and COURT SYSTEM, and POLICE FORCES, but they are not. They get thrown into the "general fund", and then some stupid liberal politican finds a way to give one of their big campaign donors some STUPID GRANT, or pay them $50,000 to create a "water fountain", or jack up the cost of a bridge, like the Lowry Ave. bridge in Mpls., from an initial estimate of $30 million, to, GET THIS,**$100 MILLION DOLLARS**.
