Gun violence?

Let's see ....

What example has our government given about KILLING other humans?

Like INVADING Iraq, killing anyone and anything that got in our way.

Like INVADING Afghanistan, killing anyone we thought MIGHT be Al Qaeda; and then sending drones over Pakistan to kill groups of people we thought might do us harm.

Guess those who do gun violence in America aren't understanding that they are supposed to 'do what we (government) SAY, not what we (goverment) do'.

The most distressing thing about this is they are ignoring the most important aspect of increased school security in favor of passing gun control legislation of any type. When you look at what actually works in the real world armed security at the school, just one person will do more to deter any school attacks than any gun control legislation you can imagine.

You are forgetting Fast and Furious. One of Obama's personal killing schemes. The other one is Benghazi which just required neglect and a treasonous lie for Obama to make it happen. Obama took violence lessons from ACORN. You don't learn stuff like that by being a spoiled rich kid growing up in Hawaii.

The liberals are reaping what they sowed...at the expense of school kids, theater goers and so on. The bleeding heart mantra they peddle has enabled the mentally deranged and criminally insane to walk among us. Guns aren't the problem, liberals are. So long as liberals pretend we are all equal and all the same, there will be more incidents like Sandy Hook.

Many were babies...

Of course Libertards have no problem killing babies, even before they are born..

No question, it's time for the United Nations to step in and take control. The United States has issues. It will be in our best interest.

Yes, excellent points!!

The meaning and value of life has SERIOUSLY declined; and it is the government who has ENCOURAGED THE DECLINE by its own example.

<Waco, abortion on demand,'embryonic' stem cell experimentation, murder by drone, etc.>

<even Obama's 'class-warfare' encourages looking at the wealthy 'OTHERS' as if they were just THINGS that need to PAY MORE MONEY>

Whatever happened to RESPECT for human life <ALL LIFE>??

How about the article today on nbcnews.com about the GA mother who show the intruder coming after her and her kids. That story slipped right past the liberal media filter.

Some 90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade have been linked to a widely prescribed type of antidepressant called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs, according to British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a founder of RxISK.org , an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs.

There has been no definitive confirmation that drugs played a role in the Newtown, Conn., assault, that killed 20 children and six adults, media have cited family members and acquaintances saying suspect Adam Lanza was taking prescription medication to treat “a neurological-development disorder,” possibly Aspergers.

Healy cautioned that the public needs “to wait to find out what Adam Lanza was on, and whether his behavior does fit the template of a treatment-induced problem.”

However, in an email to WND, he said he suspected prescribed psychiatric medications was the cause of Lanza’s violent behavior.

Disgusting, because of a bunch of criminals and mentally deranged people they attack millions of law abiding gun owners as if it will do something.
