You gun-nuts just don't get it, do you?
Nobody gives a sh*t about your wacky, delusional conspiracy theories, or what kind of gun killed those children. It was a high-capacity gun, that's all we know and that's our target.
You're trying to crawl out from under this tragedy with word-games, and it's not working...and that has you frustrated. You want desperately to disassociate yourselves from any responsibility; but that can't happen, because every one of you gun-freaks who helped create a demand for high-capacity assault weapons bears some amount of responsibility.
You're the chilish men who wanted to play soldier...the selfish men who refused to give up your pathetic little toys to help save lives...The men with inferiority-issues so severe that you had to go out and buy powerful killing machines in order to make up for some personal weakness or shortcoming.
Why don't you tell the parent of those 20 little dead children your theory about which gun killed their precious child...I'm sure it'll make all the difference in the word, you patheic little men.
go shit in a hat their dead okay it happens srry It did but It wouldnt of happend if the guns were properly locked up away from a kid who had issues. God forbid lets start taking away everything that can contribute to killing someone whats next taking away our vehicles because someone dies in a car accident take away gas and electricity because it can cause a fire and kill somebody take away knives and forks oh my why cuz their sharp and can kill somebody etc etc shall I go on. Those kids arent the first or only ones to ever die by the hands of a crazy person. God forbid you whine asses need to get over yourself and move the hell on. And I WOULD tell the parents that tragedy happens you move on from it.

No, they wouldn't. It would be handled in the same way that the DMV handles medical restrictions and medical data.

"go shit in a hat their dead okay it happens..."

THIS is the kind of moron who the NRA thinks should be able to purchase and own an assault weapon!

This is a person who doesn't even know the difference between "their" and "they're", and you people think that he's smart enough to make life-and-death decisions about the use of deadly force?

Seriously, it's pretty clear that this is an individual who could not pass the G.E.D. exam, yet is permitted to own an assault weapon.

And you wonder why we want more gun control.

It seem that everone is upset with the new law that was passed. they say this could cost 1200 local jobs. for one i agree with the back grounds checks on ever one. it you are clean then you have nothing to worry about. as for costing 1200 jobs , this company has been here for 150 plus years making sporting guns, and have done very well. why do they have to make these assult rifles for the general public? why does anyone in the general public need these?? they should be for the police or military only. i am a gun owner and a former employee of remington. i want to see this company stay but they do not need to make these assult guns for the general public at no time.

U are correct! The NRA is losing their political clout on adaily basis! They have now sunk to all new by airing their insane intimidating propaganda which includes the POTUS's children. Shame! When will their members realize that they are primarily concerned about lobbying for gun and ammo manufacturers! Enjoy your magazine!

Remington isn't going anywhere. The fact is, it would cost them too much to relocate, and there would be no benefit, because there is no state that escapes the authority of federal gun-control laws.

This kind of talk is little more than a temper-trantrum from "grown" men who like to play soldier and are having some of their toys taken away.

The majority of the American people are for tightening gun laws including an assault weapons ban. The NRA needs to enter the 21st Century.

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre recieved a deferment from the military draft in the 60's for a "nervous" condition? Would he pass a background check? Another brave Patriot who has no stones!

No, they won't.

Americans have stood by quietly as they watched shooting after shooting on television, but Newtown was the tipping point.

The truth is, politians are far more skilled than idiots like you when it comes to reading the political pulse of America; they've already calculated this one. Obama has nothing to lose, since he's in his last term, so he'll do as he please. Andrew Cuomo knows which way the wind is blowing, and he wants a 2016 shot at the whitehouse, so he jumped out even ahead of the Whitehouse on this one.

Certainly, the vast majority of Americans support gun ownership; but they also want that ownership controlled. The majority wants controls on clip-size and mental health/background checks...and they got it.

The NRA was great thing when I was a kid...but it screwed itself when it became the representative for screwball toy soldiers and wannabes.

You want to know who is responsible for this gun control? Look in the mirror.

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre is a lobbyist. If the anti-gun lobby offered him more money tomorrow, he'd move to their side.

That's how lobbying works; it has nothing to do with personal conviction...it's the dollars.

When LaPierre goes home at night, you can bet he tells his family about the freakin' crazies that he represents.

Look, anyone with a brain who has served in a combat role generally isn't enamoured of guns; these are REAL solidiers who don't get off on a weapon, and they've generally seen enough damage done that it's not going to become their hobby.

Real men use weapons as tools, not toys.

The first rule of combat, when you make contact w/the enemy, is to establish fire superiority. You can't bring a knife to a gunfight! To declare that you have the right to own an AR/M-16 type piece means that you are suffering from tiny dick syndrome!

As far as these wannabe Rambos are concerned I would adhere to one of Sun Tzu's rules. "When you enemy is destroying himself, get out if his way!"

To St Enges. I believe it will happen because there will be disciplinary action and fines if any provider withholds information. If a person commits a serious crime while under the care of a professional, said professional would risk prosecution for not complying with a mandatory reporting law. So, it's violate HIPAA or violate mandatory reporting. It's not perfect and there will be things to iron out but it's a good start. Up till now there has been nothing.

Go shit in a hat!
That would be funny to watch. Especially if Obama put the hat on.
Guns are fun. Whenever something is fun some dork has to come and take it away. Then I gotta sit next to my dumpy wife and listen to her inane prattle. Thanks a lot. It wasn't me that shot them kids. It was some tard watching those dopey video games. Sigh!

LOL, political heads came off over the queer marriage debacle. That's a tempest in a teapot compared to this one. A whole lot of incumbents are serving their last term.

My cousin who I suspect is gay but shoots and is in the NRA says some gays live in threesomes called triouples. I guess one of them is the girl and the other two hammer away. Kinda sick but it probably will be a hit television sitcom soon. I wonder if Obama is going to make it legal for all three to be married to each other. It seems like the whole world is upside down. And now they want to take away our weapons we need to protect ourselves from tards, perverts and New World Order bankers.are we really going to trust a bunch of overpriced prostitutes called politicians to protect our rights?
