When I read the title of the article I first assumed that they would use the money to pay off the deranged psychopaths to not conduct mass shootings. Probably makes as much sense as the actual proposal since the psycho's, such as the red-headed Joker, will still do as they please regardless of any laws on the books.

BATF given funding to conduct "inspections" of firearms dealers is a way to intimidate and shut down gun dealers. Just like the IRS is used as a political weapon so is ATF. Anyone remember Fast and Furious? We must always look beyond what this regime is telling us and seek their true intent. This President adheres to no ethical standards and has little integrity and his minions parrot his every deception as "what is best for America". The question is, how stupid are the American people? They voted for this twice already. If there is a third time, the country is lost.

I see that he asked for money to conduct a bunch of meaningless tasks that will do nothing to prevent mass shootings but did he ask for any money to increase security at schools across the nation?

No matter what we do we will never stop all mass shootings but we can stop them from taking place at schools the same way we prevent mass shootings at airports and federal buildings.

When a deranged psycho makes the impulsive decision to go off and conduct a random shooting spree, all the money on earth will not derail those sinister intentions. Throwing millions at a complex problem such as that is merely meant to give the illusion that he actually cares. At the end of the day, the only thing he really cares about is taking guns out of the hands of every American, leaving them far more vulnerable to the satanic, systematic mayhem of the approaching New World Order.

The biggest problem with crazy people is that they are not crazy all the time. Many are very adept at appearing sharp, coherent, and well-adjusted at any given time no matter how brief that duration may be. Hence, the dilemma.

I predict more people will be killed if the government tries to take guns from the American people that have passed background checks to legally own firearms. Poke at a sleeping dog that has never bitten anyone long enough and see what happens.

Well I'm in Kentucky, if you would like to come try to take it. And for your information, assault weapons are not illegal. I see you are one off the uneducated ones about the current gun laws of this country. Let me guess you are one of the ones that thinks the police still serve and protect? Well I'm here to let you know they are only here to enforce laws, not protect you. The government sure won't protect you. So why let them continue to try to destroy the second amendment of the constitution? You better protect yourself my friend.

"Assault weapons" aren't banned anywhere in the US. A couple states have passed unconstitutional laws requiring that they be registered but they aren't banned.

In my home state of Arkansas I can legally carry a fully loaded AR-15 either concealed or open without even having a concealed carry permit. Believe it or not those of us who carry do not go around shooting people down in the streets for no reason.

It would make more sense to put money into preventing mass suicide, which the majority of baby killing, druggie, cowardly, weak, pervert allowing Americans have been slowly doing for four decades.

As of August 16, 2013, there is confusion over the legality of permitless carry in Arkansas. For concealed carry, Arkansas offers CCW permits on a "shall issue" basis. However, open carry of handguns is not permitted

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel issued a non-binding opinion on July 8, 2013 stating that Act 746 applies only to persons who are carrying firearms while "on a journey across or through Arkansas," that open carry technically remains illegal and that a valid permit is still required for concealed carry.
Have you ever tried to wear a t-shirt and jeans to conceal an AR15? It is very difficult to do.

Unlike deranged liberals whom most mass shooters turn out to be..... As a proficient marksman I find one firearm sufficient. As long as the caliber begins with a .4......

Funny how Obammy the wonder monkey gives no mention to the millions of blacks who commit millions of rapes, assaults, robberies and murder thousands every year.
America doesn't really have a gun problem, America has a black problem.
