For a brief moment after the Las Vegas massacre last fall, Republicans and Democrats in Congress talked about taking a rare step to tighten the nation's gun laws. Four months later, the only gun legislation that has moved in the House or Senate instead eases restrictions for gun owners.

Another school shooting, what is going on out there in the schools. What is the heart of this problem. When I went to school this was never heard of.

But don't you know? Guns now give off evil vibes.

It never dawns on these kids that in these days of concealed weapons permit's someone could step out and shoot them if they brandish a gun in the wrong place.
This is not play acting.

My point was that these kids who bring guns to school to shoot unarmed easy targets don't know that they could be shot by someone with a concealed weapon these days with so many people having permit's to carry them.
They would be scared out of doing it if they knew they could be shot.

Kind of hard to do. Short of someone picking up their student when it happens (and they're armed), most (if not all) schools are "gun free" and not even so called "security guards" are armed.

Signs with "this is a gun free zone..." are inviting the enevitable.

If Congress did nothing after the Sandy Hook shootings, they never will. It will just go on and on and on with innocent children losing their lives. Probably all of them are on the payroll of the NRA

One thing's for sure. Both sides of Congress need to get off their collective a** and start working! It doesn't matter which side of the fence you're on. If both parties, conservatices etc., can't sit down then nothing will ever get accomplished.

Never been a member (by choice). If both sides really wanted something done (that was actually "sensible"), they would stop using the NRA as a crutch.

EXACTLY. The Republicans blame the Democrats and the Democrats blame the Republicans. Both are to blame. Listen to the verse of Blowin' in the Wind...."How many deaths will it take one to know that too many people have died". The blood of these 17 students and adults are on the hands of Congress. They need to all be replaced.

Actually, the GOA is a much stronger defender of our 2nd Amendment rights than the NRA. That's why I'm a member.

The blood is NOT on the hands of congress, it's on the hands of the shooter.
I will agree with you on one point in that congress is essentially worthless.
And if you want them all replaced, I would suggest ending the federal government entirely because most of the congress-critters don't give a f--k about anyone but themselves.

Of course, the blood is on the hands of the shooter, the same with the Columbine killings, Sandy Hook killings, the South Carolina church shooter, the Texas Church shooter, etc. What has happened to this nation that so many people have so little regard for human life. It is scary. If Congress cannot do something to protect our most vulnerable citizens...WTF are they even there for?

It appears the Southern Poverty Law Center hates Jesus so much that they will go to any length to perpetrate the scurrilous lie that his fellow White people are violent "racist" extremists and worse. Of course that is hardly surprising. As part of the tactics that were employed to engineer the death of the Lord, those of their ilk bore false witness against him as well.

Congress can't even agree to badly needed immigration reform. They can't agree on how to spend YOUR money.

This union of ours may be coming to an end. The country is completely ungovernable and the individual states may have to begin thinking about their own future rather than that of a nation. I know that sounds somewhat seditious, but in reality, it's what lays before us. Why should we be in debt? Why should we let invaders (illegals) free passage into our country? Why should the political left dictate to the political right how to live and visa versa. Why can't congress solve the problem of mass shooting events? And yet, we are supposed to have a bunch of bureaucratic f--kheads in Washington try and sew it all together? We have now come full circle in this experiment. What comes next is anybody's guess.

Liberals made schools targets for the deranged by banning gun, even in the parking lot. The kill babies by the millions, then if they live make them targets by stupid gun laws.

There are overwhelming numbers of cases, where psychometric drugs are involved, apparently including this one. Since the media and press gets a great deal of money from the drug companies, they don't cover this... instead blaming guns.

Media ignores crucial factor @WND
