How many homes with a stove, a pool, bikes etc. result in child injuries or death? How many die as a result of beating by a bad parent? We cannot eliminate everything that causes these tragedies..And we cannot fix stupid. Leaving a gun loaded and unsecured, a gate open to a yard with a pool, or a hot stove unattended with a child all qualify as stupid. We cannot put the entire population inside a protective bubble. Guns are not the problem. Just like your car, if people are careless someone will get hurt or worse. Texting while driving kills how many? Ban cell phones? That would be a "common sense" approach using liberal logic.

SANTA ROSA, Calif.

Dozens of people marched through the Santa Rosa neighborhood where a 13 year old boy was shot and killed by one of two sheriff's deputies.

Yes, guns in the hands of police kill children.

There are guns in the Obama home. In fact there are a lot of guns in the Obama home. They even carry those guns to school. Shall they set the example by giving up guns first? Shall they also set an example by signing up for "Obama care"? Why does the left always think they know what's best for everyone else but exempt themselves?

Need a few specific statistics to avoid the anti gun crowds unbelievably dishonest "facts are irrelevant it is the nature of the accusation" mentality. How many were victims of gang violence and drugs. How many were household accidents involving a legal fire arm? How many were related to an NRA member? How many involved illegal immigrants or a naturalized citizen? What was the political party of the owner of the fire arm and the user. How many involved stolen fire arms?

How many of the shooters were on behavioral drugs? That last question seems to be the common denominator between mass shootings that the media has been so desperately searching for.

Those who ask the wrong questions are doomed to be uninformed and have the wrong solutions.

Your questions are so irrelevant and off base that there's no way you will ever arrive at the truth.
