But all of Hollywood is democrat. Big time democrats. Yet, they are the ones pushing the hate filled heinous gun violence on our innocent young children. They should make a game called Fast and Furious featuring Obama and Holder submachine gunning down a bunch of Mexican teenagers. Oh. that already happened. OK . Make it a documentary.

What about sick Rap crap the youth listen too. Lyrics like hoe, bitches, and rappin about murder, rape, mugging, robbing, beat downs and more crap like this. This crap indoctrinates the minds of American youth. Youth believe it`s okay to beat and degrade women. Use a knife or a gun to get what you want.

Guess maybe because the promoters and players are black o`bammy won`t do or say anything.

Playing violent video games where you kill people doesn't cause crimes, people do.

Video games pollute the brain of youth training them to pull the trigger and expect blood.

Prescription drugs remove inhibitions to kill and motivate killers.

Lethal weapons are available.

Mental illness is rampant.

The traditional family is slipping away with mom and dad parenting going away.

Moms do the best they can but revert to drinking away their sorrow.

Schools are unsecured AND gun free zones, by law.

Schools are unable to possess defensive weapons.

Perfect storm by design.

AND Government is planning to ban ONE type of weapon.

We need to ban the NRA. Only 5% of gun owners are hunters.

The Second Amendment doesn't mention hunting or target shooting.

It was written to allow private citzens to defend their country.

In fact hunting could be banned and it wouldn't change gun ownership one iota.

All people see on tv, movies and games are violence anymore. News media play violent stories over and over and over. Family values have disappeared, people with mental illness or people who have no family are affected with this and they have no where to turn or to understand things.

More laws won't change things. People have to change and quit thinking violence as a form of entertainment. I now see what my parents seen when I was growing up, I think the old days seemed to more enjoyable, less stressful and more about family. Hollywood does need to quit getting away with what they put out there for our kids to see and parents need to be parents and not buddies.

Just very sad this happened in Connecticut, prayers for the families and people affected.

THE SLIMY LIBERALS ....

have set the stage for these shootings many years ago.
Every school shooting had been statistically predictable and the LIBERALS KNEW IT !.

The democRATS are in cahoots with the big drug manufacturers.
Powerful psych drugs were developed and became the profitable, prescription answer to a wide variety of extremely questionable if not outright fabricated mental disorder diagnosis of youth.
Liberal politicians receive huge kickbacks from the manufacturers.
They turned kids into a flock of retards.

Little Johnny doesn't want to go to school? Take this pill...
Little Achnach isn't learning - Take this pill...
Little Jose feels anxious - Take this pill...
Little Quantisha is sad - Take this pill...
Little Leroy is restless - Take this pill...
Little Miguel is rebellious - Take this pill...
Little Muhammed doesn’t want to get out of bed – Take this pill.

We NEED :
- Illegal Mexican control
- muslims control
- ghetto control
These groups commit 92% of all murders with firearms.

MOST IMPORTANTLY ....
We need to control LIBERALS !!!!
LIBERALS aka democRATS are 100% responsible,
since they do not hold individual suspects accountable.

.
MERRY CHRISTMAS,
Happy Birthday, Jesus Christ.

Back when I was a teenager, when things would go haywire, the first things people pointed too was MTV. They (the adults) believed that KISS stood for Knights In Satan's Service and that Gene Simmons was the root cause of everything that was going to hell in the world.

One night when coming home from work I heard Dennis Miller give one of the best examples of how idiotic that was, he said that if your kid or yourself gets pushed over the edge by anything Gene Simmons has to say they were already born with the crazy gene.

So it is with this tragedy at Sandy Hook, it wasn't the video games, it wasn't even the idea that he had access to guns, it was that the shooter was a disturbed young man and one way or the other he was going to do what he set out to do.

Does what he did make sense, hell no. But then again neither does blaming everything under the sun either.

And your point is?

Your 2nd amendment must read, a well armed hunter being necessary to the fullness of the pantry, the right of the hunter to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

There an Olds Swiss saying that No one snowflake is responsible for an Avalanche,
For a well adjusted Kid, coming from a good family watching a violent movie or playing a video game is not going to turn him into a killer.
And for one already down the path of destruction it also does not matter if they Play grand theft auto or Hello Kitty Adventeur Island.
But there also those kids who are teetering on the edge, One Movie or violent Video game might be the snowflake that sends him over the edge.

Where are the Gun control advocates??????????
So teaching one to be responsible with a rifle or pistol so they can hunt or defend themselves is wrong? But let violent Hollywood,obscene music, and video games indoctrinate our youth .

all the big shot movie people in Hollywood contributed heavily to obama, so they are going to be exempt from any 'control' issues that obama comes up with.
