What does race have to do with it? Or are you one of those "when in doubt play the race card" people?

Cancer patient detains home invaders, MLive.com , Michigan,
63-year-old cancer patient Dixon Smith was at home in Laketon Township, Mich. when a pair of burglars broke into his house. Smith spotted one of the criminals walking by his front window, and then heard the burglars talking downstairs. After retrieving a shotgun, Smith confronted the intruders, ordering them to the ground. The burglars complied, and Smith held the pair until police could arrive. According to Smith, the police response took “Kind of a long five to 10 minutes.”

The assault weapon used in Sandy Hook belonged to the killer's mom.
Anything else, dear?
We know it was in all of the papers that he stole the firearms from his mother. But you surmised that had the last ban been in force Sandy Hook would not have happened. I reminded you of the fact that the Columbine massacre happened during the great ban of 1994. The gun bans don't even slow down killers.

Must you duck, dodge and swirl instead of staying on track? I must take the time to congratulate you, I haven't seen a 3rd grade tirade from you in a few days.

You know nothing of the kind.

His mother gave him permission to use these weapons certainly; she took him to the range and certainly he used them with her permission.

What proof do you have that he stole anything?

At the range...under supervision...have anything that says otherwise...?

"What proof do you have that he stole anything?"

27 dead people...the first being his mother with 4 bullets to the head. But I'm sure you'll say she gave him permission to murder her.

I have only seen few people dragging race into the issue, both sides of the issue. If race has something to do with an issue it has something to do with it. You brought up race where it didn't matter. When the race card is played it is normally an attempt to put a person on the defensive. Why object to something that doesn't pertain? You assume I am white.

I stated the fact that I had never compared the KKK to any group. Voice my objections to what?

It seems we are back to that reading comprehension problem you appear to have. Perhaps it is selective retention? Maybe this will help http://www.understandmore.com/i-adults.htm

We have been down this road and your theories and summations was blown out of the water by several people. Both from a legal context and common sense context.

Him having permission to use them previously didn't give him carte blanch access to them. Do you actually think his mother actually gave him permission to use them for murder? Even if she "gave him permission" that very day as soon as he shot her and removed the firearms from the house he stole them. Until an official report is released and vetted one has to use common sense.

Yup...right back in your face...right where I'm going to stay...because I will not allow your lying, BS go unchallenged...like your statement below;

"...trying to force guns into all aspects of civil society."

Lie much...? Can YOU show ANY "aspect of civil society" where guns have NOT been already...?

Yawn there is that irrational spam from some nut trying to force guns CONTROL laws into all aspects of civil society

The last ban had the Columbine massacre (most notable) right in the middle of it. Chicago, right now with some of the strictest anti gun laws, has a crazy murder count. Guns can not be carried by anyone in Chicago (except LEOs and politicians)- there should be very few gun deaths if a ban worked. Not to mention all of the attacks where firearms were not even used.

I think "frustrated control freak" is a pretty good definition of many (not all) gun control advocates.

So you are saying that he had his mother's permission to use HER GUNS to shoot her then murder 26 other people? If she did not give him permission to use them, and he did so unlawfully, then YES....he did steal them.
