Do you think they might have taken the one in twelve names off their "No More Names" list that are criminals? Including Tamerlan Tsarnaev? Yes, the Bllomberg list of "victims murdered by guns" includes a Boston Bomber. Page 12 of this months "First Freedom", oh, the NRA Magazine. The list also includes California Cop Killer Christopher Dorner and at least 4 others killed in shootouts with police. Newtown cops looking a little more crooked? With holding info on the school shooting and supporting the lying anti-gun crowd.

No disrespect to the families of Newtown, but they are going after the wrong people. They should be demanding that the courts follow the laws and sentencing already in place for a start. The people who are committing these atrocities are not your typical gun owners. Check and see what happens when a felon is found with a gun, especially in Ct. I don't care if our prisons are filled to their tops. Certain people should do a LOT of time for their crimes. Doesn't happen...ex. the Cheshire fiends. In Newtown, a stupid mother put weapons in the hands of her troubled son. No one paid proper attention to this latest troubled man. It is NOT the gun-makers and legit owners causing the problems.

It's community, or in both cases here, lack of it. Obviously Adam and this D.C. shooter needed to talk to someone who cared about them. The long-term core of Newtown society cares only about getting money and how to cover up the evil deeds done to get it.

A government security clearance is a lot higher than a background check to but a gun. Even the minimum clearance. And for him to be on base or to be in the military he had a government security clearance, So if anything the government should have seen this guy had a problem way before a background check to buy a gun.

Funny how the Newton victims are using the Washington Navy yard shooting to push there gun control agenda, but yet not use shooters like Christopher Dorner. They sure are selective in which shootings they use.

....They were using Dorner, as a gun victim!! He was shot by the police so they listed him as a shooting victim.

I don't believe they will be successful no matter what they try.
