Your comparison is a poor one. Drunk driving has always been illegal, the problem was (as you alluded to) more of a societal wink-wink, nudge-nudge when it came to actually punishing those who got caught. Juries tended to take the "there but for the grace of God go I" and let the drivers off. We can thank organizations like MADD for helping make people aware that those who broke the law needed to be treated as though they broke the law and these changing attitudes also led to the lower thresholds and stronger laws you mentioned.
And again, the laws that the Left tried to pass by shamelessly using the children of Sandy Hook as political cudgels, would have made NO difference in the Sandy Hook shooting. If you look at the most recent mass shootings, the problem appears to be one of mental health - none of the proposed gun laws have addressed this issue - and given that the current climate prefers to err on the side of the rights of the mentally ill versus the rights of the community,(I am not making a judgement here, simply stating a fact) I don't see that changing anytime soon. But the whole situation of public mass shooting needs to be put in perspective. Even one shooting that kills one victim is a tragedy, but the coverage of each one would make one think we are all in imminent danger of being a victim.
According to a Congressional Research Service Report released a few months ago, the actual number of public mass shootings since 1983 stands at 78 - and those shootings claimed 547 lives. Public mass shootings being defined as: an incident involving four or more deaths and involving a gunman who selects victims somewhat indiscriminately. As precious as each of those lives are, 3 times more Americans have been killed by lightning in that same time period.
As the Daily Beast's Megan McCardle noted in December 2013, "It is beyond horrible to suggest that even a small number of attacks are largely unavoidable. I don't like saying it. Unfortunately, I think it's true." More laws are not going to change that, they will simply make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to "keep and bear arms" while doing nothing about those who are already more than willing to break any laws in order to get whatever firearms they wish to have.
+1 Great post. I don't understand why the democrats find that so difficult to understand. The law abiding citizens will be the only ones hung out to dry.

He got his. He doesn't care about the rest of his union "brothers". Unions are drying up. They aren't needed nor wanted.

You don't have to worry. Those people will be cared for IN SPITE of your hatred and lies. It's not about YOU. It's about getting help those people so despately need and they'll get it.
Of course, you "didn't know" (where have we heard that over and over) about the Sandy Relief. It didn't support your lies, so there ya go.

The dummy was complaining about the sequester money FEMA didn't get, like many other departments. He doesn't get a pay raise this year and his medication prescription has expired.

He's not only dull himself, he is the cause of dullness in others, witness the other liberaces here.

The economy scares me more than any politician. Incomes for highly educated and trained workers have risen while low-skilled workers' wages have fallen. With the baby-boomer generation retiring, eventually taxes will have to be raised to care for these retirees and low-skilled workers don't pay taxes so the responsibility will fall on the highly educated and trained workers. That scares the bejeebies out of me.

you're pretty good at hitting nail on the head.

They are "objectivists" or pseudo 'objectivists'- They may not admit it but they take their whole meme from Rand and her sophomoric novel Atlas Shrugged. They worship greed. Funny thing is that even the religious fundamentalists among them idolize Rand. She hated them and they still cling to the leftover remnants of a cult that never had any credence from the get go. They are few in number and think that being loud suffices for being correct. They see the world in black and white,'takers' and 'makers'. They are a dwindling and pitiful lot. Their modern heros are little more than clowns. Bachman, Palin, beck, Santorum, Paul etc.
Oh, yeah. Can't get anything past you. You just have it all figured out. Wow! YOU should be president. rotfl Most humorous post of the day.

Now do all you non-republicans see how immature and shallow are these weirdos. They actually thought they could con all those non-republicans into allowing one of their most stage4 disease infested candidates(romney) to be elected president. Now they are all sitting around their federally insured mortgaged homes, dreaming up the most crazy insane thing that they hope, would knock America's president off. Damn fools! there is no hope for them.

You are just bullying, Chicken. Your buddies IO, oh my and CN aren't angels. CN made a vulgar post. Interesting how the left wing loonies resort to vulgarity. Why is that?

"Why is that?"

mean-spirited, low education, typical liberace no-respect for women, feelings of being caged,

but most likely a subconscious feeling of their own sexual inadequacy which eventually leads to violet acts against women.

As one who has lived here the past two years but returning soon to Pine Mountain, this mass detruction on one area of the country(OKLA) could very well be linked to the woman republican governor who refused to meet OUR(America's) President when he came here last year to help the oil pipeline from Canada go thru. She has also refused much needed healthcare funds from OUR government. Now you know this slut has good healthcare paid for by (state)government but to hell with middle class and poor. Also this is a hypocritic republican majority state and most are anti-Obama. Now why else would God spank his children soooo hard? Be careful there repubs, I think HE is quite upset with your tunnel vision and maybe trying to wake you all up! Terrible destructive tornado but Obama will be much more of a man than bush and send federal assistance to this state unlike prick bush who did'nt help New Orleans. Thank You God for a Non-republican President and he is'nt perfect but sure beats romney.
This post is your most disturbing one,yet. So, you think those poor, devastated people are BEING PUNISHED????????? You are scum. You are the most worthless bottom feeder that has EVER been on this forum. If it's THAT important for you to be "right", go ahead. Pat yourself on the back.

While I'm on a roll, notice there are 6 topix on this forum and only 100 reponses, most from republicans. Now to show how most think over 11000 reponses to 1 topix about elections. Now you republicans keep it up and see how isolated you are.

And he lives in Okla and is too sorry to get out and help those folks in Moore, Okla.

Typical sorry liberal socialist, always expecting the conservatives to do all the lifting while they sit around and smoke their weed, pop their dope and draw medicaid and food stamps.

Nice try.

"It's about getting help". What a bald faced Right Wing Wacko lie.

Greedy, selfish, arrogant, RWWs did everything they could to gut FEMA, just so they wouldn't have to pay taxes to help your fellow countrymen when disaster struck.

Thankfully you lost the presidency two elections running, and grown ups are in charge so your dream of "Screw You" and "Every man for himself" wasn't realized.

Instead, thanks to leeeeeeeeberal socialist commie Democraps we have a FEMA able to help our friends and neighbors in their hour of need.

No thanks to you Right Wing Wackos.

Go pretend somewhere else that you Wackos give a damn.

Just like our dead and disabled troops - you weren't there to help them when they needed protection from your Right Wing Wacko Wars, you wanted to gut FEMA so we wouldn't be there for Oklahoma.

Accountability sucks when your a RWW.

Sorry, but every time you post you just proclaim your ignorance from the mountaintops. You on the Left are the ones who keep on bringing up Ayn Rand.

He was kicked out of the Ayn Rand club and is holding a grudge against repubs because of it. The only other answer would be he's a loonie bird without feathers(reason).
