With Obama pulling the fake tear ploy, he is doing everything he can to subvert the second ammendment. Our gun laws had nothing to do with this crime. A deranged man did. In China a man walked into a school and slashed 22 students. Are we to outlaw all kitchen and hunting knives too?

We must ban assault weapons, hip hop music, and video games. We must disallow non school related internet access and i phone access to children under 16.

This is the only way to stop the corrosive impact our society is having on our kids.

Americans have to Man Up and act like Adults if we are to stop the madness.

Your right.
Kennesaw, GA does not have a gun problem. Altanta, GA has a gun problem. This may be conceal/carry problem.

If by "politicizing" we mean "politicians discussing real-world solutions to the national gun violence problem," then yes, we SHOULD politicize it. Not by party, but as a practical matter - this is a problem, let's solve it.

Of course Obama's going to be faulted by rightwing extremists no matter what he does or says, that's a given, but those people don't deserve a seat at the table. They're not real Americans.

1. "fake fear ploy" - 27 people, including 20 children, were gunned down in merely the LATEST gun massacre. How is this "fake?"

2. How is Obama "subverting the Second Amendment?" Offer proof.

3. Our gun laws make guns available to deranged men. Discuss.

4. This isn't China, and your knife crime is an evasion.

5. Can we outlaw stupid, pointless, partisan posts like yours?

No one's banning hip-hop or video games, or the internet, or iPhones. Get a grip.

Granted, our society is a mess, but let's get real.

Discuss this...

Chicago, IL has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the country yet this year 39 people have died and 130 were wounded in gun violence.

The inner city is a war zone.

Where's the outcry over that?

The massive increase in applications for Guns (currently 16.8 millionz) was a logical response to Obama's re-election. Once Americans had to face the hard fact that the Mob had given Big Brother the power to rob our families of our freedoms and libertys Americans had no choice but to arm themselves. Arming for SELF DEFENSE is much different than SUB HUMAN Crazy people misusing Guns to kill innocent children.

Dane's comment is no less sane than your attempt to blame guns on a something that doesn't happen that often.

Lawsuits against schools, teachers and principals who attempt to point out possible violent tendancies of a particular person...goth cults, devil worship cults, gangs, violent video games all protected by liberal lawyers...

Ban liberal lawyers.

Your post indicates the ravings of a crazy person. Not sure if you're "subhuman," but that's a distinct possibility.

Off-topic, but just out of curiousity, prove it.

Ban babbling, irrelevant posts. Granted, that'd cut down a lot on your posting, but why would THAT be a bad thing?:)
