Maybe they aren't reporting Nancy's ties to Republicans, because she was a card carrying Democrat. A Union member,and a liberal fundraiser.

Ye thats good and proper until your relaxed laws makes you complacent and you leave that assault rifle in your cupboard next to your bed and you teenage son going through depression walks in and easily pulls it out and goes on a rampage...!
again .. it all comes down to ease of getting these weapons as to why you need them to defend yourself in the first place.....if a petty house thief can pay 150 for a gun its cheap and easy..in australia a petty thief cant afford nor can legally buy a semi nor auto....and the ones which can are into high level organized crime and dont target homes for cheap goods.. its the decay in society which forces you to have these weapons for self defence...and ye I agree..its to far gone to change that now in your country so go ahead and blast yoursleves..

Really????
Being a tea party activist has NOTHING to do with the fact that her son killed her and then killed 26 other people before he killed himself. Nor does the fact that her husband works at GE. Those guns are readily available and are legal to buy. They do not require any kind of special paperwork. It is not like she had fully automatic weapons in the house. As far as her son goes-the actions that he did are incomprehensible. I felt anguish for the families and the community when I first read about it. We do not know why he did what he did, but there are police working on it. Repeating unsubstantiated rumors as truth is just attention seeking on your part. Using the mother's supposed political viewpoint as grounds to trounce on people who do not think like you do is pretty much loathsome. Now in case you think I am a tea party member-I voted for Obama. I am a gun owner with a conceal carry permit. I hunt and fish and keep guns around the house for protection. I consider myself to be a centrist politically, agreeing with some things the Republicans say and also agreeing with some things the Democrats say.

That is true. It 'is' easy to buy loose guns. That's one of the things which needs changing. Our laws are so inefficient and guns are so easy to get by criminals that even the criminals and drug cartels in bordering nations (Mexico) are getting their guns from us (America).
We already have some strict gun laws that call for lots of prison time for offenders who use guns or people who are not allowed to have guns but possess them anyways. We need to enforce those laws an punish those offenders, not punish the law abiding citizens of this country.

Here is another story of mass murder being committed with guns:

Oh wait- those people did NOT have guns. They just had machetes and killed hundreds of people with them. Looks like gun control works REAL well there.

This is a tragedy but we need to tell teachers that they must be well armed and ready to engage when they go to school.

Police can not protect everyone so the school must take teachers to shooting ranges and pay for their license to carry.

A criminal can be stopped by armed and well organized teachers.

It doesn't take more than a few hours to teach them how to shoot and provide basic cover for each other as they engage any armed person who attempts to do the students harm.

School faculty must be ready and able to defend the school.

2) It is in the constitution ( how old was it, 200+ years ?)

After 9/11 lot of rules and regulations changed, same things has to happen for gun laws too.
100s of years back, thiefs were given death penatly, is it same now ?
Times have changed, law has to change.
You only need gun to shoot back, if nobody has the gun, you don't need one.
BS. A gun levels the playing field for the weak and defenseless against a stronger threat.

No one is attempting to take guns away from normal gun owners or restrict our right to protect ourselves with lethal force. Neither party is.
What this is about is finding a way to reduce gun violence (things like the school shooting), to better recognize mentally unstable people, and reduce the ease of which criminals are obtaining guns.
The NRA assumption of reducing gun violence by putting even more loose guns out onto the streets is the dumbest thing that could ever be said. I cannot believe anyone listens to it.

Our system concerning gun violence isn't working. We need to change to one that does work.
Btw, withing 24 hours of the school shooting another small child was killed by a nutcase with an AK-47. It happened in Alabama. He also shot a police officer before SWAT killed him.

I am an American living in Mexico.

It took me years and close to 10K USD in fees and lawyers to get a permit to carry a gun here.....

Possession of a military style gun is minimum 15 years in prison...
Did you hear about the US marine that tried to declair a old shot gun he was bringing into Mexico and because it was too short he could have done 15 years?
http://www.nationalreview.com/the-feed/335148... #

But here in Mexico where all guns are illegal we have more guns per person that in the USA and far more gun crime.......

A ak47 can be bought here on the streets for about 500 dollars.
The Bush master liberals want to ban is over 1k dollars........Ban the bush master and you will have AKs

We have factories here in a small house that can make 100 guns a day from scrap and junk metal.
Millions of guns are made in Mexico and south American every year........

How many tons of Cocaine come into the USA every year???

Raise the price of guns in the USA and more of these here will flood the market.....

No gun law will ever prevent even one shooting........Period
