90% of those accidents are completely avoidable, but not by taking away all guns. They are avoidable if we only teach our children about guns at an early age and instill a respect for them that makes them think twice before playing or fooling with them. I grew up around guns all my life. My father had several in the house, and when I was old enough to understand it he took me out to the woods with them and blew the hell out of a few watermelons to show me what a gun could do. He taught me how to handle them, how to work them, and how to be safe with them. I never fiddled with them once in my life.
Telling kids that guns are evil and bad and whatever else you wanna call them is just idiotic to me. It's easy to understand; tell a kid not to do something and the first thing they want to do is that one thing. Tell a kid not to touch a gun if they find one and then hide it from them is just asking for trouble. Teach them not to food with them and show them what will happen if they do, adn they'll understand.
Sure, war is also avoidable, but does it ever happen on this rock?

Do you believe if we teach our children an early age how to see war, it will make wars safer?

Wars are a completely different issue. We're not talking about kids in a country like, say Israel, that is under constant threat of war or invasion. Wars are terrible and they can be evil, but they are unfortunately a necessary evil.
I'm talking about teaching a child not to fear a gun, but to respect it. Making a kid fear something just makes him more likely to "face his fear" and try to get his hands on one. A large percentage of accidental gun deaths in kids are of kids that had no idea how to handle a gun or even seen one. A kid finds his dad's gun, that he knows or is supposed to know he's not supposed to mess with, and because dad didn't teach him anything about it he starts to look it over and mess with it. Next thing we know, he's hurt himself or someone else. Teaching kids to know and respect guns and what they can do would, I'll bet anything, stop 70-80% of all childhood accidents with guns. Demonizing an inanimate object is not the answer.

Today the Senate ruled threw out the Assault Weapons Ban included in Diane Feinstein's gun control bill, a major victory for the American people. Other measures still remain, such as proposed universal background checks and restrictions on magazine size, but those will be struck down in good time. This, coupled with the defeat of other radical policies like the obsurd soda bans in New York, for instance, are the first is what I hope is a long line of victories over this administration's deplorable treason against the Constitution and the American way of life. I, for one, find reason to celebrate in this.
A MAJOR VICTORY FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE???

Can you explain why anyone needs an assault weapon with large magazine capacities to hunt - or - defend family, property etc???

If your aime is so bad you need to shoot a deer or an intruder 30-100 times - then you certainly are NOT QUALIFIED to be shooting an assault large capacity weapon.

Now, what't the real reason that this is such a victory for the American people???

Weapons and war are both necessary evils. They both kill innocent people. As I have stated many times previously, I have always been a responsible gun owner and hopefully always will be, but with that freedom comes reasonable actions. The assult type weapons and large capacities magazines are all most always chosen by gun nuts to kill as many people as quickly as possible.

Just as we have controls on wmd's {chemical and nuclear} so as not to kill as many {collateral damage} as quickly as possible. With civilization sometimes comes common sense.

No, we do not need semi-auto rifles (not assault rifles, assault rifles are military weapons and are fully automatic) and high-cap mags to hunt. I know a lot of guys that use ARs and the like to hunt small game like prairie dogs out west and to hunt predators like coyotes and bobcats, but only because the .223 ammo is highly accurate at the ranges they shoot from. These guns are mainly owned for personal defense, but not jut in the home from intruders. We have them so that we are prepared to defend ourselves against ANYONE that comes to harm us, up to and including an oppressive gov't. I know what you're thinking, "No, the American government would never do that, you're just paranoid!" Well, judging by current events, maybe not. They are also used in competition and exhibition shooters, many of whom are professional shooters and can actually win large sums of money or even win scholarships (in the case of high-school and below shooting groups.

I agree completely that we need some control and common sense, but banning the guns isn't the answer any more than banning cell phones to keep kids from texting and driving would be. The semi-auto rifles and high-cap mags are usually chosen by mass shooters, but mainly because they expect to encounter resistence. You notice that most of these guys wear body armor to a no-gun zone?(James Holmes, Jared Loughner, etc.) And the fact that they can get these guns, usually illegally, is exactly the reason why we need them as well.
What it all comes down to is not the guns themselves, but the principle behind the ban. If they can ban one kind or type, then what is to stop them from banning them all? Maybe not now, maybe not during the next presidency, but eventually. If we let them have an inch, they WILL take a mile and more and just keep coming until we are all disarmed.

Agreed, if we will notice these anti gun control activists never discuss these babies except to say "we are exploiting the deaths of these children for our agenda" AND I SAY ABSOLUTELY!

Would some of these people say: Aaaww hell parents don't waste your money on funerals or tombstones for these dead kid they're just kids, you can have more!

I'm wondering how many of these gun nuts actually looked at the faces of these beautiful children and the anguished faces of their parents, and say it's to much trouble to go through a criminal background check?

Those parents bought caskets instead of Christmas presents. Those parents walk by those childrens bedrooms every night to a deathly quiet and darkened bedroom for the rest of their lives!

Again, the guns that are in the home are perfectly safe as long as we teach kids not to screw around with them, that they are dangerous if misused, and how to respect them instead of fear them. Guns can be useful, protective, and even fun when used properly and safely, as well as deadly when misused. Just like a car, a knife, a tool, or a cell phone.
If you're referring to incidents like Sandy Hook and Columbine, a ban would have no effect. All the guns used in those shootings were either illegally obtained or stolen, both of which would be uneffected by a ban on legal weapons. Steps are also being taken to further protect our schools, such as several states now allowing teachers, parents, and volunteers to be trained in CCW courses and to carry concealed weapons on campus, as well as emergency drills for kids teaching them what to do in the event of an attack. It's sad that it had to come to this, but the sad truth is that there have always been psychos out there that wanted to do things like this, and these days as we glorify and celebrate people like Loughner, Lanza, and others we are only making them bolder. Taking the guns away from people that can and will defend themselves and their children would do absolutely nothing to curb such violence. In fact, it would only make it worse.
