That platform includes language stating that the GOP opposes legislation that would "restrict our Second Amendment rights by limiting the capacity of clips or magazines." The platform also calls more broadly for "the fundamental right to self-defense wherever a law-abiding citizen has a legal right to be." That line was an add-on to this one from ... (more)

What happened was a tragedy and could have happened, God forbid, if the perpetrator had a hunting rifle or shotgun at home.

But how did someone like that wind up with an AK-47 in his house?

Scary that people have high powered assault weapons in their homes!

Moogati - And your face is offensive to humanity!

I was just making a valid point in light of a tragedy. No need to insult anyone.

If a person truly believes in the 2nd Amendment actually says, the phrase "We support the Second Amendment, and believe gun ownership is a fundamental individual right." should NEVER be followed by the word "But".

OB, the liberal media is completly clueless as to what guns that predator had.

AK 47's and automatic pistols are illega to buy in this country (at least any made after 1986, and the ones you "can" buy require a lot of paperwork and money).

So, please tell me what law would have stopped that predator from bying those illegal wepons.

What is really scary is that there are ignorant folks like you that have no idea the liberal media just plain old lies when it comes to guns.

"Guns, particularly machine guns..."

There were no machine guns used in this crime or any of the others that were high profile.

As for the AK47, it's legal for deer hunting in my state so long as the rifle possesses Title I features as far a barrel length and overall length. A five shot magazine could be used by the hunter to keep his Elmer Fudd buddies from crying too much and that magazine would make the AK47 technically unidentifiable from the other hunter's Browning "deer" rifle.

I'm not quite sure why it is that anti gunners believe that one style gun is less or more deadlier than another, that's one of the main things that make these idiots sound rediculous.

This guy could have just as easily used a screw driver to kill two people, much less a regular Remington shotgun.

Thank you for the education on AK47's, "Uziland". The point, however, is that they're illegal in NJ. I don't know who you are referring to as "idiots"; if it's those who don't know much about guns & assault weapons, that doesn't make them an "idiot" at all, just because they don't have experience with them (with hunting), and you do. And "Richard": many objects can be used to harm/kill others. That's not the point, either. These psychos seem to enjoy the power & drama of obtaining whatever assault weapons they can to do the most harm.

It's completely disturbing how all these people who don't agree with a point of view immediately start launching personal insults at someone they have never even met.

Idiots? Dummies? Ignorant?

I asked you a question. You can't answer it and you come up with this;

To the rest of the posters on this board -- I'm not going to participate in a forum where anyone who disagrees with any point made responds with a personal insult.

To Marauder - I know you are but what am I?

My fantasy football team name is "Sandusky's Necro-Lemon Party featuring Caylee Anthony and Madeline McCann". Is that offensive?

99 percent of the AK-47's in the USA are not "assault weapons.

Don't get to bent out of shape.

The same tactic is used by many pro gun control writers on Topix.
