Gosh, 500 people killed with guns in one city.
What they need obviously is more guns...
In the right hands that would probably help. But right now only the criminals and politicians (I know it is hard to tell them apart) can carry.

I know you have been asked this before and haven't answered it yet, but we'll try again. Where is a criminal most likely to commit a crime using a dangerous weapon, a "gun free zone" or a place where there is a good chance someone can hasten a thug's demise?

They are wrong.
Why is it the ones always wanting to infringe on rights are the ones it does not apply to? Those who don't carry want those who do banned. Typical is the government wanting to change a right that protects us from the government. Isn't that like having a rapist wanting to make rape legal? I'm sure if given the chance criminals would want to ban police and prisons. The anti-gun people screamed to ban guns on school property, that removal of a right was going to stop killing in schools. But as usual it has been proven to be a lie. The shock of a school shooting will wear off and common sense will return and as usual the idea of an inanimate object causing crime will die down.

That had nothing to do with the question...the so called "gun show loophole" that doesn't exist.
I didn't say gun show loop hole.

And the gun show loop hole does of course exist.

In some states... others were wise enough to close it.

It's not gun control that is the problem.

It is the lack of gun control that is the problem.

Why is it that the gun gnutters want special rights and cry when Americans don't listen when they have to blame video games for the massacres like Sandy Hook?

That is a lie on its face.

There are in the neighborhood of 8 million concealed carry permits out there.

Lies: Something we can expect from gun gnutters.

Typical fallacious gun gnutter reasoning.

Now waiting for you to bring in Lassie and Timmy and how he fell down into the well.

Or was he pushed?

There are 27 dead in Sandy Hook and the NRA put the weapon in the killer's hands.

How is exercising the basic right to self defense a special right? How is blaming the millions of law abiding citizens for the actions of a few criminals logical? How does my right to self defense infringe on your rights in any way? A killer went into a self defense infringed zone and killed. That is a fact but to blame anything but him is foolish. He holds the blame not what he watched on TV, or game he played, or what tool he used to commit his crimes. As usual you dodge the real questions or posts and just release hot air.

Liar liar. The NRA didn't write the constitution or issue basic human rights. The anti self defense crowd (YOU) killed those kids by making it an easy target for any random act of violence.(YOU) make it easy for harm to come to those who can't fight back.

It obvious you are the liar, honey.

The NRA doesn't have a clue what the first amendment is.

It hasn't stopped them from insisting they do.

They are wrong.
The largest mass murders are commited with fire, poisen, explosives, box cutters, and tanks.

Guns are used but very ineffective. If there is a large number of people in a targeted location the only way to attempt to protect them is with barriers and armed guards.

Look at any Federal Reserve Building. The windows are protected with bullet resistant film from 3M, there are a perimeter of posts to protect against vehicles, there is no parking near the building, all entries are secured OR guarded by armed guards, everyone must enter using an access card, every entrance is double doors so if one is breached there is another keeping an intruder out.

None of this is rocket scientist stuff, it just needs to be implemented in schools.

Note the following info on the new Sandy Hook school. Outdoor sidewalks and entry door WILL BE MONITORED:

I.E. they are stepping up security at the school.
