We have over 9000 gun laws on the books here, and they haven't stopped one gun crime from happening. Writing more does nothing, except make you think the politicians are doing something. Take away everything and eventually we will be back to beating up each other with rocks and sticks again, quick make a law against that too.

Check out this documentary:

"The True Story Of Gun Control"



It's very well done and informative, even for those of us who already know a good bit of history regarding the disarming of a people.

Here's another great shorter video, this one of Mr.Henson Ong, a legal immigrant to the US, at the Gun Violence Prevention Public Hearing - Hartford, CT - 1/28/2013

*THAT* is an American! More so than most of Congress and the current administration, that's for sure!

Again... the standard US Military rifle was...?
And do let's remember how effective the .223 was on the children of Sandy Hook.
First off, the standard-issue US Army & Marine rifle changed. In the early years it was the M-14 battle rifle chambered for 7.62x5.56mm NATO with a 20rd magazine.

Second, the New Town/Sandy Hook shooter used pistols just like the police carry to shoot the children. The Bushmaster AR-15 was found in the trunk of his mother's stolen car outside the school.

It's quite telling of the true priorities of those desiring a doomed-from-the-start ban on "assault weapons", whatever the hell that means, that nobody is suggesting restricting semi-automatic pistols, the actual weapon that was used, only semi-automatic rifles. semi-automatic rifles that have been in common civilian use since the early 1900s and that are rarely used in crimes, but most popular for citizen defense because of their relatively small caliber that makes it easier for women and teens to use effectively, and it's modular design which makes it adaptable for use as a ranch/varmint gun or a personal defense weapon.

We only have one thing that will stop gun deaths........keeping Obama out of the situation room, and on the golf course instead.

How many people were killed in SWAT raids? SWAT carries M4 select-fire fully-automatic machine guns.

Letting that ignorance out for a good public showing, eh?

Yeah, funny how your link has to go to a link which goes to yet another link which was updated within hours of the massacre.

This is what NBC says:
