Are they insisting on background checks for all gun sales?
Uhhhmmmm, my uninformed one, I was commenting on a comment, quite a few, actually, that your "comrade in arms" made. He very clearly stated, on multiple posts, that crazy/insane people have exactly the same right to own a weapon as I or you do. Should I be worrying about you too?

Two new polls show a majority of Americans support stronger gun laws, putting the National Rifle Association on the defensive for opposing President Obama’s gun safety agenda.
A CBS News/New York Times poll finds that a majority of 54 percent back stricter gun laws — a 14-point jump from last April before the Aurora and Newtown mass shootings — and 53 percent say it would deter gun violence, while a Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that around 75 percent of Americans support gun restrictions.
When it comes to specific proposals the president is urging Congress to pass:
– 92 percent of CBS News/NY Times respondents and 86 percent of Reuters/Ipsos respondents favor mandatory background checks for all gun sales.
– 53 percent of CBS News/NY Times respondents and 74 percent of Reuters/Ipsos respondents back a ban on assault weapons.
– 63 percent of CBS News/NY Times respondents and 74 percent of Reuters/Ipsos respondents support a ban on high-capacity magazines.
In a bit of good news for the NRA, their proposal to place armed guards in schools is backed by 72 percent of Reuters/Ipsos respondents; however, the CBS/NYT poll finds that the NRA has the same low approval ratings as Republicans in Congress, with only 39 percent supporting the gun industry lobbying group. And support for armed guards in schools could change after today’s news that an armed security guard at a Michigan charter school left his handgun in a student bathroom.
Well, when my opinion and that of every voting person is included in that poll, you would have a point. Polls mean diddlyshit. If you base your opionions and hopes on polls, you will get your panties all twisted up for nothing!

Oh, and love the co-opting of sheeple. Fits fine. Seems like we are going to do everything by push polls and majority vote now. A true democracy. Can't wait to see that in action.
Dammit, where's that "sigh" button!

Sorry the hyperlinks seem dead in the water:

st way to prevent violence.

"In general, when I see these things, I feel like maybe the people who killed others, didn't receive the help they need," Pratt said.

Officials said murder suspect Nehemiah Griego, 15, had a fascination with video games. Pratt said not everyone who plays the games will be violent, but they can exacerbate those with mental illness.

"On some level that can desensitize kids or some teens to real violence," Pratt said.

<quoted text>There you go, the poor mistreated boy was frustrated with his mother. Who I'm sure was well aware that the kid wasn't operating on all cylinders. She, much like that mother in Newtown, probably sheltered him. I'd really like to know just what it was that he found so frustrating. Why did he send a picture of his mothers dead body to his girlfriend, what motivated that act? It also makes no difference what that kid used to kill them all, hell he could have used a knife, a cannon, or BB Gun, bottom line, he killed them and there was a reason.
These morons don't care about how many children are killed every day in the USA

They don't care about preventing these deaths

They only care about making sure nobody has something they don't have

Hmmmmm....My 12 year old son, when we were having a conversation, the topic of which escapes me at the moment, said something that gave me pause. He said "it would be easy to kill someone" or "something", pretty sure he said someone. My initial reaction was to blame the stupid video games he, my daughter and husband play. I thought about it quite a bit. I do think, in younger children, it seems "cool" and quite possible in their un-intergected minds. Yes, I know that's not a word but I mean someone who doesn't have someone to teach them right from wrong but, MOST importantly, compassion, sympathy and empathy! I had a very long discussion with him and he is one of the most sympathetic (and empathetic in a lot of ways) people you'd ever hope to meet! In my unprofessional but well experienced opinion, I don't think video games, per se, "cause" people to commit crimes but, rather, inattentive and just plain absent parents contribute to the problem. Sadly, many, if not most, parents plant their children in front of a screen and provide them any entertainment necessary to keep them "out of their hair".

Coming Soon: A Breathalyzer in Every Car?
By Joseph R. Szczesny Wednesday, July 01, 2009

Nearly 13,000 Americans die in traffic accidents every year. Now Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is opening a new front in its war on drunk drivers, and it's getting help from the Alliance for Automobile Manufacturers and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

A new highway bill pending before Congress would instruct all 50 states to require all motorists convicted of driving under the influence to equip their cars with interlock systems that shut down a vehicle when a measured amount of alcohol is detected.
(See the most important cars of all time.)

There are already about 150,000 interlock systems now in cars in the U.S., placed there for drivers with multiple DUI convictions. But the proposed mandate would expand the use of interlock systems exponentially; MADD's statistics indicate that nearly 1.5 million Americans are arrested annually on DUI charges, making it the No. 1 crime for which Americans are arrested.

States wouldn't have to abide by the ruling, but there would be heavy pressure to conform, since states that don't adopt the mandate could lose their highway funds. "The national 21 minimum drinking age and the .08% law [for allowable alcohol in the bloodstream] both resulted from federal highway sanctions. History tells us that this approach works," says Laura Dean-Mooney of MADD. So far only 11 states require interlocks for anyone with one conviction who is currently driving on a DUI-restricted license.

Opponents of the MADD push for stricter laws warn that a federal interlock requirement would serve as a Trojan horse, opening the way for even more sophisticated interlock technology that would be required on every car sold in the U.S., according to Sarah Longwell, managing director of the American Beverage Institute, which lobbies on behalf of taverns and restaurants. "If you go to the ball game and happen to have a beer you wouldn't be able drive home," she says.

Funny how the people for regulating gun safety keep posting statistics and the gun gnutters keep insisting children die anyway.

How's that search for the 30-30 law coming, Numbnuts?

Some die from jumping out of airplanes.

But dozens of children die from gun shots when their idiot parents leave them unlocked in table drawers.

I guess you just don't care about them, eh, Numbnuts?

You are making things up.

Shocking!

Let's see: Adam Lanza used an assault weapon- something the NRA has worked hard to make sure he had access to- to kill 27 people.

He did not use a video game or a violent movie.

He used an assault weapon, something that turn breathing children into hamburger into just a few minutes.

Thanks to the NRA and those gun gnutters who insist they should have an all-access pass to deadly weapons.

I guess you reserve the right to comment on a comment on a comment and no one else does.

Most Americans understand the need for background checks on gun sales.

The NRA is fighting background checks tooth and nail.

What will happen is: they will be forced to accept background checks, at which point they will pretend it was their idea in the first place.

I have been through it with background checks at gun sales when the NRA insisted the government was going to track all the gun sales and then collect them.

Still waiting...
