Guns in the hands of gun nuts and other psychos kill people. That's why we need strong laws to take guns out of the hands of gun nuts and psychos.
We aren't going to stop shootings by pretending that every person under treatment for mental problems is a massacre waiting to happen. Only desperate gun nuts trying to hold onto their weapons pretend that's true.
Same old song and dance.

Logically you can solve this debate. Fill a stadium with 100,000 guns and another with 1000,000 people. Leave them there for a month and I guarantee nobody will be killed and none of the guns will fire a single round in the first. I would bet someone would be killed in the second. People kill people. Guns are just an object just like a bat hammer or knife. All of which used by a PERSON can kill someone.

Boehner Rejects Obama Call to Trade Social Security Cuts for Tax Hikes. Obama wants to cut Social Security that is OUR money, but not the entitlements that are for the his freeloader base.
What a f-ing imbecile, the republicans have attempted to past a budget (twice now) that would effectively privatize social security and turn Medicare into a voucher system thereby ending two monumental safety-net programs for our seniors yemoron!

Save the millionaires
The very rich are a lot like the rest of us when it comes to losing a job: They receive unemployment benefits, just the same as a millworker or office assistant.
What's startling about the trend is that the number of millionaires receiving unemployment benefits has skyrocketed, with nearly 3,200 households earning adjusted gross income of more than $1 million receiving jobless payments in 2011. That means the government shelled out $29.9 million in jobless benefits to million-dollar earners in 2011, according to Bloomberg, citing IRS data compiled by the media company.

Why do you suppose the USA has more guns than any other industrial country and more firearm deaths?
