I agree. I think this freedom of speech thing has went to far and allowed a communist from Kenya to become president. I think what we need is a right wing dictator.

Gosh.
The majority of Americans are FED UP WITH THIS CR&P!
Your right, Americans are fed up with this crap and that includes millions of legal law abiding gun owners and the NRA. The answer is not to go after the masses of us, but to go after the mental health industry to do their jobs to root out sick b-stards who if not a gun would resort to bombings or poison or fire bombings and more.

You progressive`s desire is to have the end result being only law enforcement and the CRIMINALS being the only ones with the guns leaving the rest of the population defenseless. The gravyards are full of people who thought mistakenly that the police could and would protect them. Any honest cop would tell you they can`t that it`s up to you to protect yourself, be aware of your own security needs and that of your family.

It`s liberals like yourself who is responsible for the state of our country today. You and people like you have corrupted the minds of our youth who are comitting these horiffic acts through the Socialist teachings in our schools and the entitlement society where you want everything for free from those of us who have worked our whole lives taking nothing for granted. We are the realists of America.

What makes you say that? The purpose of the second amendment is to protect us from the government. Did you even bother to read the second amendment before making such an idiotic post? People do need protection from any government that uses children as an excuse to torture their victims with colon restriction devices.

Yes, that is how it is in most countries and the gun killing rate is much lower in those countries than in USA.

We can see most of the recent massacres in USA are not done by criminals but law abiding citizens who are registered gun owners.

im a law abiding citizen. Im a producer not a parasite. and none of my guns are registered. There is no legal requirement for registering them. I can honestly say if everyone was like me. the courts judges police lawers would starve to death. We wouldnt even need someone to pick up the litter.

Gun rate maybe, total murders , not really.

This illustrates that no matter what laws are passed, whether guns are available or not that people will still be preyed on by other crazy people.

Patently false, both in concept and fact. Fact is that a law abiding citizen is not a mass murderer. Fact is that a person who murders any one or more people is a criminal.

The last three well known public shootings, in the Mall, the theater and now the elementary school were all by stolen firearms, not legally obtained in anyway.

Killing rate is ceraintly highest in USA than in the rest of the western world.

A Law abiding citizen has become a murderer last Friday because he had easy access to guns.

Firearms are stolen because of the law as there are easy access to many firearms that can be stolen.

I won't blame the murderer, I blame the law.

Not at all , take a look at the population numbers and it becomes crystal clear. Per population vs total murders it is no contest.

More people equal more crime its as simple as that.

From what I`ve been able to find is all except one mass murder has taken place in blue states with the democrats in charge with a large liberal progressive base. Oklahoma bomber grew up in MN a heavy bastion of liberalism like California, Colorado and Connecticut and Virginia. With Socialist Progessive teachers teaching America`s children for decades now. Texas was the lone standout,(Luby`s) I don`t remember who was in charge then, but unlike the others is considered a red state.

Liberalism, Socialism = Failure

It is much harder to drive that way and kill.

More guns the merrier.
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.
