Take the guns of every citizen, and criminals will still have guns and modify them into whatever they need.
We can talk about better reporting of mental health issues, putting armed guards in every school, etc. but in the end, it will not stop someone meaning to create havoc and who has no regard for life.
Personal preparedness is the only way, but no one can arm themselves and be on guard 24 hours a day. And is that 'living.' No.
It's very sad. Google 'amish school murders' That happened in 2006, I believe. Not far from where I am. And it was national news, but there was no public uproar as there has been with Newtown.
Also note that 310 Americans were killed in Afghanistan in 2012. Thankfully, none were children. In Chicago in 2012, 540 people were killed, and I imagine a lot more than 20 of them were kids. And this is the so-called "president's" hometown.

Here is a test for you:
Can you prove that any modern media resource not invented at the time the Constitution was ratified poses any greater degree of risk of fatality to individuals living in today's society than did the printing press, or standing on a soap box?
Think about that. How silly your reasoning is.

Apparently, you've never seen the power of mass media. The FCC tends to think differently.

Isn't the proliferation of handguns in America fun?

USS Cole, our embassy. Other attacks that Clinton let go and did not retaliate.
He did ok on welfare reform.
Like every other "good" thing Clinton did (welfare reform, budget surplus), he was forced into it by a GOP Congress with real leadership until 1998. Clinton signed those measures to save his own skin.

By the way Seriouslady, no matter what you propose. This is only a forum, where there are people like yourself, can carry on a conversation, that isn't in left field.
You seem to know some things that can be found in the Bible. Could I ask a question, as a clue, there is a book, with this mans name. I have a question about him that most likely, you can't answer.
I may not always agree with you, but that is OK. At least you aren't some fool. TC PR
I am no expert on scripture, for sure, but you can attempt.
My mother was and also the most Christian person, in word and deed, that I can imagine.
And so was my Dad, although he never entered a church unless one of his kids was being christened or married.
I am a Christian, but I will never agree with everything any pastor says. They are, after all, only men/women, and there was only one perfect man.
I'll give it a try. If I don't know, I'll say so.

Two key points T-Bone:

First, I don't believe anyone has ever committed a mass murder using a telephone communications network, television or radio transmitter, or broadband internet connection/server.

Second, the FCC does not regulate internet content.

Its always fun watching you squirm when presented with truth.

And just like the lotto when someone hits it big you had wished you played. So when a shooting does occur and you're there, I bet you will wish you had a weapon to protect yourself (if you're still alive that is).
When it comes to carrying a gun I'm just living by the adage it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
The house always wins, though. You didn't know that?

Odds are important. Why is that so incredibly difficult for you?

The prevalence of guns is more closely associated with gun violence (homicides and suicides) than safety and protection. Nonetheless, there will be plenty of folks willing to sell you a chance on a losing proposition.

And we should take legal advice from someone who cannot manage basic sentence structure and punctuation, why?

And it is the obligation of free citizens of the world to see that that doesn't happen.

Regardless, the analogy that folks love to banter about comparing the 1st and second Amendments is absolute balderdash.

Like I said, people don't get cut down en masse at the theater or in schools or malls by internet servers.

So--if nothing at all can be done to make a difference, how do you account for the reality that the US is particularly outstanding when it comes to violent deaths?

You have an odd definition of "squirm." It it from the "Newspeak Compendium"?
The media influences the mind, dummy. A far more powerful weapon than any gun.
And where did I say anything about the internet? The average uneducated, Obama-voting dirt bag in America gets their brain rewired by television, not the internet.

The "media" may be used for either good, or bad, and how one defines its use is often determined by one's perspective. That's absolutely how it should be in a free society.

On the other hand, there's absolutely no doubt that when someone unleashes the force of a bushmaster on innocent victims the actor's intentions are "bad", and so is the result.

So they're tools, right? Utilities that are under the control of the minds who control them, either for good or evil, right?
Thank you for finally admitting that guns don't kill people.
