Unfortunately the stupid and the crazy won't voluntarily give up their right to own a gun anymore than you would.
That's why the only realistic option is to go after the guns.
The liberals that want to disregard the second amendment are just as culpable as the loons that supported opening the doors to the asylums.

<quoted text>Your fellow maggot munchers in the Senate are being treated like the wellfare clowns they are. They too get paid for doing no work.
House Republicans are touting a new plan that calls for temporarily resolving the debt-ceiling standoff and passing a bona-fide budget for the first time in years.
But lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are claiming there’s a problem – they say it’s unconstitutional.
In an effort to break the partisan deadlock, GOP leaders on Friday pitched an ultimatum aimed at the Democrat-controlled Senate. The plan, dubbed “no budget, no pay,” allows the government to get three more months of borrowing authority, with no immediate spending cuts required, in exchange for having to pass a budget within that time. If senators fail to do so, they will be denied their federal paychecks.
“We will authorize a three-month temporary debt limit increase to give the Senate and House time to pass a budget,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said.“Furthermore, if the Senate or House fails to pass a budget in that time, members of Congress will not be paid by the American people for failing to do their job.”

Republican "plans" are purely partisan, aimed at 'defeating' Dems and grandstanding, and would be bad for America.

Remove the debt ceiling altogether. It's a violation of the COnstitution in any case, which says that paying our debts MUST not be questioned.

Cantor and his ilk shouldn't be paid NOW. They should get prison terms, actually.

Media Bias Is Real, Finds UCLA Political Scientist
By Meg Sullivan December 14, 2005 Category: Research
While the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal is conservative, the newspaper's news pages are liberal, even more liberal than The New York Times. The Drudge Report may have a right-wing reputation, but it leans left. Coverage by public television and radio is conservative compared to the rest of the mainstream media. Meanwhile, almost all major media outlets tilt to the left.

These are just a few of the surprising findings from a UCLA-led study, which is believed to be the first successful attempt at objectively quantifying bias in a range of media outlets and ranking them accordingly.

"I suspected that many media outlets would tilt to the left because surveys have shown that reporters tend to vote more Democrat than Republican," said Tim Groseclose, a UCLA political scientist and the study's lead author. "But I was surprised at just how pronounced the distinctions are."

"Overall, the major media outlets are quite moderate compared to members of Congress, but even so, there is a quantifiable and significant bias in that nearly all of them lean to the left," said co&#8209;author Jeffrey Milyo, University of Missouri economist and public policy scholar.

The results appear in the latest issue of the Quarterly Journal of Economics, which will become available in mid-December.

Just curious...
Why is it that those who steal guns, who then go and kill movie goers and children in school have never been a conservative NRA member?
Ft Hood - Registered Democrat – Muslim
Columbine - Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals
Virginia Tech - Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff - Registered Democrat
Colorado Theater - Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal
Connecticut School Shooter - Registered Democrat; hated Christians
John Hinkley Jr. Hated Ronald Regan, Registered Democrat
Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats

But, that is not realistic to a lot of people. The nuts will still get guns, like people will still drive without auto insurance. I wish I had the solution.
The only other option is for society to accept the fact that a certain number of innocent people are going to be slaughtered each year.

If that's the case, then I can live with that (hopefully). We're overpopulated anyways so losing another 20 or 30 kids every year isn't going to doom the survival of the human race.

People will just have to be more careful where they go.

I no longer fly on airplanes or go to movies or malls or pretty much any large gatherings of people because it's just not worth the risk anymore. I never liked flying or malls anyways, so it's not a big deal for me. It's much more enjoyable to watch a movie in the comfort of my own home with a bag of popcorn I didn't have to pay $12 for!

Emotionally mature people don't stalk other peoples' posts, indulge in childish insults and name-calling, and tell lies, Rectum of Us. That's why you're not only a stalker, troll, and possible pedo, but a very huge hypocrite.
