I am sure you thought Sandy Hook was hilarious, Shug.

A 4-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed himself with his father's gun in north Houston early Sunday morning.
Jaiden Pratt was spending the weekend with his father, 21-year-old Marquiez Pratt, in the 13500 block of Northborough, just south of West Rankin, when the accident occurred, said Sgt. Brian Harris with the Houston Police Department's homicide department.
Father and son had been sleeping on the couch. The young boy woke up and picked up his father's handgun lying nearby, shooting himself in the stomach, police said. Neighbors heard the shot.
The Constitutional rights of Americans still stand, regardless of your emotional plea to remove them. When was the last time you reached out to a troubled teen or young person to help them deal with their pain, so something like this wouldn’t happen? My guess is never.
Sad that people like you are so scared of people around you that your strongest desire is to remove Constitutional rights.

What hilarious is the Constitution protects the rights of Americans and you think you can remove it, when you can’t.

You can roll around and stomp your feet all you like.

Americans understand the US Constitution is there to protect them from special interest 'rights' groups like the gun gnutter lobby.

And the violence that they inflect on our society... daily.

And Americans, Shug, are passing legislation that protect us from the gun violence you and your kind insist you have right to inflect on us.

The US Constitution, Shug, is on our side, not yours.

Hilarious that you think rolling around on the floor kicking your feet screaming "US Constitution" gives you the right to inflect your muddled thinking on us.

The NRA insists Americans have a right to carry the assault weapons into kindergartens.

Americans insist the NRA is wrong, and we have a right to protect ourselves from the tiny-dicked- you and yours.

What are you talking about? The Constitution is a reminder of the rights we have, it doesn’t come from government. As Americans we have the right to have firearms. You don’t like it move to Norway, where you can get picked of at a summer camp by a freak with an illegal firearm. Effectively proving that “passing legislation that protect us from the gun violence” doesn’t guarantee protection.

And sorry, pal, the US Constitution is on my side with the Second Amendment.
You have nothing but fear and wet pants.

Show us all where the,“NRA insists Americans have a right to carry the assault weapons into kindergartens.” Name and date please. Or are you now pushing the limits of becoming a LIAR?

“we have a right to protect ourselves from the tiny-dicked- you and yours.” Then go buy a gun, little guy.

You are a reminder of a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing.

You don't know what America's constitution means.

Maybe if you stuck around for high school graduation?

Look at the recent push to ban open carry of weapons into Michigan public schools, moo-ron.

Happy to see YOU prove the NRA has changed its policy.

Do show us where they NOW want to ban open carry of assault weapons into public schools or anywhere else public.

Do announce right now that **YOU** oppose open carry of assault weapons into public schools.
