So now the Liberals have another person to use for their agenda until they don't need them anymore.

Remember Cindy Sheehan?

You are right it is despicable that a father has to beg senators to do the right thing.
Truthie, it is plain to see that you folks do not want to see the faces of those folks who have lost their children to gun violence. It is tough to watch, dontchabetchathink?
They deseve a vote.
Attention inabilitytoreason!!! That's right douchebagger in that deranged little mind of yours it's justice to go after the rights of millions of law abiding Americans--based on what some murdering mental case did to his own mother and 25 other innocent people? You've got to be kidding or you're insane like the perp.
You want to see who helped kill those kids then you look in a mirror because there you'll see the idiocy behind such garbage as "Gun Free Zone" signs and the political correctness behind the demented idea of adults in charge of hundreds of kids having no lethal means whatsoever of defending those kids...NONE.
Do you think that distraught father would be asking congress to ban cars if a drunk driver killed his kid? No Way. He would be doing what others have done and that is take aim at the individual who committed the crime and not the cars belonging to millions of sober responsible people.
You want to be unarmed and subject yourself to crime be my guest but you get in the way of my gun rights and I will treat you exactly like the sick minded criminal you are.

When you see fienstien and a table full of firearms that she proposes to ban keep it in mind that fienstien and her smelly democRat ilk are protected 24/7 by security armed with weapons that make her ban list weapons look like pea shooters. She is one despicable hypocrite self serving dirty diaper democRat gutless bag of manure.
Where will those criminal coddling gun grabbing zealots be should you and yours encounter one of their revolving door convicts? The answer is where gun grabbers always are...NOWHERE.

The NRA supports the right for blacks to have guns, and are therefore supporting domestic terrorism. Shootings happen EVERY DAY and are carried out byni ggers throughout the country. Send in the National Guard, round up these savages, take away their guns, and put them back on the fields. Then the human population can start to feel save.

A Fathers grief goes without saying, but that does not give this administration the to ursurp the 2nd Amendment anymore than the 1st.

Earlier the Senate convened a panel made up of victims of gun violence, I suggest you watch the following video to get a true sense of 'victim-hood' by being denied our rights to protect our selves.

This video sez it all.......

Rightie thugs like you are never more exploitative than when you lie about a Dem "exploiting" someone.

This bereaved father voluntarily speaks up against gun violence - and you LIE about him?

That's your idea of helping?

Disgusting. Get lost.

No one's "usurping the 2nd Amendment," nutball. Nor are sources like Faux News or GOPeeUSA reliable sources of fact.

"Registration is confiscation" is so damned dumb it more than speaks for itself.

Thousands ARE victims every year. And you would do nothing. Shame.

Strange English, strange logic but guess Mrs. Lanza was not "stoopid" because she trained her son to be "a man" and the 26 slaughtered folks "inherited" the outcome of that hugga hugga manhood.

The second amendment should not have effected this father's life, nor his son being slaughtered and those other victims of our gun a-toting culture.

The reality, dear friend, is that it has, it does and will in the future.

We should have "grief" about this.
