After Sandy Hook, after twenty children were shot and killed at a place where they should have been safe from all harm, there was some optimism among supporters of gun control: perhaps now, finally, both Democrats and Republicans could see the light - and the suffering - and revive the assault-weapons ban.

Those of us on the border saw the scheme of fast and furious unfold,
Get twisted and aimed at Texas Gun Shops,
And BACKFIRE!

The empty ammo and gun shelves in America are patriot testimony....

The NRA is American law abiding citizens, not an obamma demon to be caged...by the twisted....

Stay alert,

Constant vigilance

It's the border residents watchword!

In the Sandy Hook tragedy, each child killed was shot 11 times. The shooter may have been psychotic, but his weapons helped him be a more efficient psychotic.
Good think we have the NRA to talk over lying voices like this, just change the facts to suit your pre conceived notions. Everyone know each child was not shot 11 times. Terrible as it is there was one child shot 11 times so you turn that into each child was shot 11 times.

You somehow have it in your head that this somehow would not have happened if he did not have these assault weapons but we know from experience that is not true. The sicko planned this and could have planned the same thing with weapons using 10 round magazines instead of 30.

If you really want to do something what usually happens in these type incidents is the killers usually kill them selves when confronted by police and that is exactly what happened here. He did not stop killing because he ran out of bullets he stopped killing when a couple of police officers entered the building, he fled then killed himself.

If you really cared about those kids like you pretend you would be more concerned about having police at the schools instead of getting hung up on a gun control agenda which would not work.

Lanza had a spreadsheet of over 500 mass killings with what happened and what weapons were used and you somehow think if you had an assault weapon ban it would have gone like that. The problem is what was going on in Lanza'a head not what kind of gun in is my closet. He studied this, why do you think he picked a 1st grade classroom to make his mark, he did it because it is not hard to kill children, the most he killed at one place was in a classroom near the door, he killed the teacher first then the kids.

You are simply trying to push legislation from an emotional base and that is not the way to do things.

If each member of the NRA recruits one new member the NRA will recoup all the money they have spent fighting the Democrats on this gun grab they just lost. There were a couple of people that works for my husband who didn't have guns. They begin discussing the 2nd amendment at lunch time, and one has already bought a handgun, and the other one is deciding what he needs. They never thought of owning a gun before the President, was reelected, and the Democrats picked up seats in the House, and held the Senate last November. They have to Grandfather in the guns we have at the time of any new legislation.
Why do I think you are writing fiction?

And don't wory about the NRA. They don't need member's dollars; they get plenty of support from the gun manufacturers.

Don't be your usual stupid self, today. I would've loved to have been there with my Taurus Judge .45 long colt and put a bullet through his brain before he could get started. Had that school had a resource officer as we do in all the schools here, he'd would've been stopped immediately. Funny how these shootings take place in liberal states.

We sure as HEll didn't here you whining then children and women were burned alive or a woman was shot in the head at Ruby Ridge by government agents with a baby in her arms. The left has proven it's evilness throughout the ages.

You post fiction every day..........you troll the internet looking for any anti republcian rant and put in on topix immediately. Most of the time.........without regard to how stupid it really happens to be. A really sad life and way to make a few dollars off the far left's looney tunes.

This is the next day, so I suppose I can be stupid again. But it must be contagious, since you seem to have contracted a virulent strain of dumb.
Your "solution" would probably have caused even more deaths, Blueper.
I didn't know you tracked my whining, you heartless jerk. Your response is even dumber than usual.
Oh, and thanks for letting me know that Tennessee and Georgia are liberal states.

The ignorant call them assault weapons, they are NOT assault weapons, they are semo automatic rifles. An assault rifle has fully automoatic fire capability.You drank the media's cool aid on that one Lawrence sheeple.

In your logic, cars, knives, hammers, baseball bats, rocks and even the jawbone of an Ass kill people.

Do we then ban or restrict these items as well?

Look for the proffesor, and larry to "lose control". and try to insult their way along, now that the Democrats have joined Republicans in upholding the 2nd amendment. So funny. They just don't get it! They are not that bright.
