I could never use my dead child the way these parents have exploited their dead children. Greeting cards? How could they? Have they no shame?

Tough isn't it for you folks who have more empathy for your cold guns than you do for those folks who lose their children to those guns and those paranoid gun gnutters.

Dear, I would bet those parents never - repeat NEVER - believed that their children would end up as "dead children".

The shame, dear friend, is that our country should - and is - ashamed of our constant gun violence, our constant gun culture and those ignorant folks like you dismiss and demean those parents who have lost their children.

And the world laughs ...

Being a parent of kindergarten aged kids I cannot even begin to imagine his loss with no words that I can write to help him. Being a gun owner as well, I feel angry at NRA. There is nothing wrong with background checks or limit on how many one can buy in a given time. Just like driver's license, gun ownership is not a right but a privilege. If it was a right then felons are also Americans and should be allowed to own one. Mentally challenged people are also Americans and should be allowed to get them. Just like we regulate driver's license and we revoke them, suspend them or not allow certain people to have them, same should go for guns.

Attention inability!!! After months of slander and libel people are fed up with those like you who drag around the corpses of little kids so you can concoct another deranged law that does nothing but restrict the law abiding while catering to the criminal element.
Not once have you come to this forum and addressed the mental health issues everyone of the perps have in common...not once. Not once have you stood up for your law abiding neighbors, etc. All you've done is talk out your azz like a typical fixated gun-ban-nut. The fact is, all you know about firearms wouldn't fill a thimble.
You are as cunning and sleazy as the actress airhead who tried to blame her husband for sending letters to obama and bloomturd all while she was the guilty one...You belong in jail with her, lintlicker.

Attention GasbagDateDotOrg!!! I almost vomited reading your post. The touching intro was nothing but a sleazy way for you to justify your demented libel about the NRA...News for you: The NRA had nothing whatsoever to do with Sandy Hook or any other criminal acts. The NRA did not go along with the insanity behind the new background check agenda that failed in congress and neither did anyone who read the bill because it stunk to high heaven.
And furthermore, as a gun owner you should know what a form 4473 is? Well that's the form for the current background check and that check is more than enough to cover the bases. The fact of the matter is out of 15,000 who were denied purchase last year only 44 were prosecuted by the obama administration...I mean it's against the law for a felon even to attempt to obtain a firearm and when they do they just keep on truckin because nobody is doing anything about it...especially b. h. obama.
Furthermore, The Second Amendment is indeed a Right guaranteed in the Bill of Rights and for you to concoct ways to say otherwise is despicable. You lose your rights and freedom only when you break the law or act like a fruitcake who is prone to injure themselves or others...No one stands in the way of that under the current background check that is unless of course you're a despicable democRat who would restore the rights of felons--especially their right to vote.

Excuse me, but not too many people throughtout the world think that they or theirs will die, but damn, shit happens and obnoxious liberal sob sob, boo hoo twits just like you can not understand that it wasn't the gun but a deranged kid that in this case ended those lives. If they just can not live without producing a child then I think they should jump in the nearest bed or whatever and get it on, everything is replaceable. Sadly that also includes you and guess what, I'm not ashamed.

God bless these families. It is easy to understand how they need to focus their grief on something, anything. Rather than focus on the problem, the progressive left has convinced them, for political agenda, to focus on a symptom.

If we really wanted to rein in gun violence we would start in Obama's old Chicago neighborhood, and insist on stop, and frisk any one over the age of 10. There are other inner city neighborhoods that are explosive, but that would be a good start. If we fined them for every illegal gun we find we could get some of Momma's welfare money back.

If everyone does not want their government(s) to give up their military [for adequate self-defense vs. foreign military invading them], even in light of the HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of people who died within the last 100 years *because* of blatant abuse of those GOVERNMENT controlled MILITARIES, then these people are "cold-hearted bastards" because of that?

Come back and comment when you've a logical, non-drugged up mind to think with.

Until then, keep embarrassing yourself in front of everyone... if you so choose to. ;-)

If the government(s) won't give up their ARMS in light of all the billions of innocent people who died because governments abused theirs over the last few centuries then, we will be damned before we give up our arms in light of the few exceptions compared who abuse theirs today.

Oh, and if people had guns on them when these alleged nutcases walked in and started shooting, those nutcases would be dropped in a few seconds.

So, you can either 'thank' the government for setting up laws which only LAW-ABIDING citizens follow, not outlaws, which prevent those citizens from carrying guns on them in these so-called "gun free zones" - or - you can thank the propagandist idiots who fear-mongered people into not carrying guns on them when in a movie theater, in the streets, etc., so now when those criminals attack them in those areas, the unarmed citizens are basically helpless vs. those OUTLAWS who arm themselves with guns!

So now we see who the *true* enemies are.

Yea right. Gun owners are cold and insensitive to kids but hoplophobes are not.

Those parents were cop-collaborators. They did anything the Newtown police told them to do to others.

"A maniac shot my kid so now I demand we eliminate the Bill of Rights."

Of all causes of death guns will cause the fewest deaths.

Gun ownership IS a right; that's why the 2nd amendment prohibits Govts from regulating our weapons. Hoplophobes like you should be regulated back into the nut house and then we'll be more safe.

No, it doesn't. SCOTUS has already confirmed the rights of states to regulate arms....get a grip.

Dear, this country and world were shocked, disgusted and surprised that even in a gun hugging gun gnutting paranoid country like ours that "shit happened" to 20 kids who were hoping to learn and be edwwwwcated but instead were slaughtered in their classrooms.

To any rational and reasoned person, this is more than "shit happening" (your sill words)

You paranoid gun huggers like to move the discussion away from Newtown and on to Chicago because Newtown shocked us all that 20 kids could be massacred in mere minutes.

Now go back to discussing Chicago ,,,,
