Getting legislation "introduced" is one thing...getting it passed is another
The NRA-sponsored bill to allow people to carry concealed weapons into public schools in Michigan was VETOED two days after the killings.

So it begins.

More legislation is coming; legislators are not going to be able to hide behind their NRA contributions any more.

The treatment comes in January when the fiscal cliff is behind us and legislation is introduced which will end the sales of these tiny-dicked deadly toys to persons like yourself who should not be allowed access to slingshots let alone deadly weapons, especially assault weapons that have no place in our society.

Is that your submission to try to make the human race? Too bad not enough. It is a sub human and until it comes up with something better than that. Poor little it.

You need to improve your reading comprehension. If it hard for you to read click on the blue things. Many times the links have charts which are like pictures. These might help you a great deal.
A link I provided, especially for you, separated gun deaths by thug vs. thug, suicides, self defense, police action, accidental, etc. Your horrifying picture becomes a bit clearer as not being the gloom and doom you want it to be.
Are any deaths a good thing? NO. Thugs killing thugs are a wash to most people. Suicides are self inflicted and Japans statistics show, Japan 23.8 (no guns) vs. US 12.0) LINK ALERT http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countrie... LINK ALERT. Self defense can be stopped by thugs not having criminal activity as a job profession. Police action shootings revert back to thugs changing their career path. Accidental, well you can't cure stupid. They kill themselves everyday driving stupid, stupid work habits, stupid drinking habits, stupid electrical work while standing on an aluminum ladder in water, ad nauseum. Over 50% of your 32,000 are suicides (refer back to the Japan rates for a comparison).

The Libertards think by posting something out here makes it so. If one follows the trail to junk facts spun to meet their needs their arguments end up hollow.

Their philosophy is attained from Obama. He is a master at twisting and turning information to meet his needs, and he is very convincing.

Of course Obama just reads from a teleprompter what is fed to him by a large number of handlers. Obama's brain isn't capable of contriving 1% of what he says.

Tell about the 500 people killed with guns in Chicago? Isn't this Obama's Gun Control Home. He should be moved to the south side of Chicago, Not many shootings at the whitehouse.

Thursday Feinstein will introduce her bill siting confiscation of all guns, hand guns, long barrel, everything. Don't worry the Government will buy them ack. What fools you were to elect those hitlerites.
If you inherited any guns before they were registered they want you to forfeit those as well. Stupid. stupid Democrats. I don't think the Republicans are ready to give theirs up.

He does have the ability to vote "present". Yes or no seems to escape him. Like another on here, no independent thought just what is fed to them.

Big deal.It was vetoed in Florida in 2011 but in the same piece of legislation the state's preemption law had teeth put into it which is why all the local governments had to remove their gun restrictions like no firearms in local parks.

The way I read Michigan firearms law, one can OPEN CARRY in many gun free zones if one has a concealed weapons permit from any state.
Not what you were hoping for, right?
Put that sign on your front lawn yet advising the public your house is a gun free zone? LOL

You are easy.

The gun knobbers think nothing has changed since someone took one of their tiny-dicked toys into a elementary school in Sandy Hook and shot yet another 27 people, including 20 children.

They are wrong.

That had nothing to do with the question...the so called "gun show loophole" that doesn't exist.
