Thistle, dear, I do not spend my dollars with drug dealers or gun dealers - and yes Walmart is included.
Y'know.... I don't pray very often but I'm thinking about starting. I'll pray that the day comes that there is a violent intruder in your home and YOU pray to GOD you had a firearm. I'll pray that you suffer the FEAR my wife felt when we lived in town,that the lurker wouldn't break a window to gain access. I'll pray that your children cling to their Mama as she hushes them to be quiet so NO one knows they're there. I'll pray that you experience EVERY emotion,EVERY fear,EVERY sense of hopelessness as your husband is miles and the cops are many,many,MANY minutes away. Yes,I'll pray for you. I'll also pray that the3 cops have the decebcy to cover your body with a suitable clean cloth and PROPERLY OUTLINE THE BODY IN CHALK.....

Yes,I'll pray for you.....

Perverts using defenseless little kids shot by a madman are coming after the rights of those minding their own business.
And to add insult to injuery they are coming through a self-serving piece of filth who was mentored for years by the communist-terrorist "Kill Your Parents" bill ayers. Talk about sick minded people...Very little difference between lanza and gun hating ignoramuses.

Progressive answer, it is a weapon that you can assault someone with.

An assault rifle is any thing bigger then a B B gun according to the left. Democrats are scared to death of their citizens. What horrible things have they done to be so frightened? It is funny to watch. Whatever they do by circumventing Congress can be undone by the next President.

Thankfully The United States Constitution prevents the self-serving lord marshal b. h. obama from implementing any of his gun hating dribble. Now if the lord marshal thinks he's above the United States Constitution then our nation's history may have to repeat itself.
Furthermore the well protected hypocrite mayor bloomturd is urging the lord marshal to sidestep The Constitution. Frankly it's amazing how much self-serving liberal filth like bloomturd have in common with adam lanza...They have perverted urges to stomp all over the Constitutional Rights of others...Only a fool would lay down their arms to such deranged people.

I cannot imagine a Republican circumventing the Constitution. They have too much respect for it, and what it stands for. Democrats believe in nothing, but gimmee, gimmee, gimmee, mine, mine, mine.

Where are these W M protesters. My daughter was in Morris today, and they didn't have any protesters. Don't have any more guns either. Everyone in the U S must have 4 or 5 by now. Obama has been good for the gun manufacturers. He is a joke.

I was at our Walmart the other day and didn't see any there either. Yes Obama has been good for gun manufacturer's, the sales have skyrocketed since his decision, and thousands more I read have also joined the NRA since then too. We were in a Bass Pro Shop last week and some of their shelfs in the gun display cases were totally bare!

Yepper tomorrow the self-serving lord marshal uncle b. h. obama will surround himself with herds of little squeaky kids who wrote him asking for, "gun control."
For the sake of argument let's say some little jokester tyke pulls out a toy cap pistol and starts blasting away. Rest assured return fire would be coming from all directions and the whole audience would be mowed down lanza style.
In other words the hypocrisy reeks with these two-bit politicians who are surrounded by weapons that protect them all while they seek to deny others the basics required for half way decent self-defense.
Yepper you get the number of rounds they deem you should have while they get never ending rounds...Talk about discrimination...I thought all men were created equal? Where's the equality?

If the Democrats believe people who have already registered their guns on the state level will take part in a National registry they are crazy. A national registry is what the Germans, and the Russians got first, then when they were ready to disarm their people they knew just where to go to pick up the guns. We aren't that crazy, and we are protected by the 2nd amendment.

What they want is power and control. That is why they like communism. They want to control speech, housing, food, employment, transportation. They are absolutely the antithesis of what this country was founded on and I am at a loss to understand where they came from.

I love you folks who deflate the danger of guns with knives, baseball bats, disease, etc. but I doubt Lanza would have killed as many people as 26 people in the short time he used his warm/cold gun.
After all, don't some of these guns have a Cyclic rate of fire = 600 rounds/min and a semi-auto rate of fire = 40 rounds/min.
Lots of damage in such a short time, huh?
Lanza was able to do what he did because there was no one there to stop him, and he knew it. As did the madmen at Columbine, V-Tech, Fort Hood, Aurora, Newtown. Even the mall shooter in Oregon took his own life as soon as someone had a bead on him...a civilian who didn't realize the mall was a "gun free zone" and carried his weapon in with him.
More Americans were bludgeoned to death than were murdered with rifles between 2007 and 2011. In that same time period, nearly nine thousand people were murdered with blades. Which only goes to show that when people are intent on killing, they often succeed.
Since the majority of countries worldwide allow citizens to own firearms, firearms will never be completely eradicated. Therefore, it makes more sense to be on the defensive.
Automatic weapons (600 rounds per min.) are banned and haven't been used in any massacre here since the days of Al Capone. 40 rounds per min. will likely result in a jammed firearm. One armed employee at that school? Lanza would have been "neutralized" before he even laid his deranged eyes on a child.

Oh you paranoid guys with your paranoid "slippery slope" propaganda.
Do you know where I can buy a tank as this seems preferably more safe than an SUV?
Never shopped at Walmart and never will spend a dine in their store because of their wish to make money off guns.
Can you picture the circus Obama is projecting, but the children are too stupid to see the facts. We have Obama that is tied to fast and furious where 204 people were killed, you have a president that ordered a billion hollow point bullets for God knows what, and he is surrounded 24/7 with men packing guns and he just gave himself lifetime protection from the secret service on our dime.
