Florida shooting leads some Republicans to say it's time for Congress to do more than talk

There are 52 comments on the USA Today story from Feb 15, 2018, titled Florida shooting leads some Republicans to say it's time for Congress to do more than talk. In it, USA Today reports that:

Several leading Republicans said Thursday that Congress and the federal government should finally dive into the issue of gun violence following a massacre at a South Florida high school that killed 17 people. While recent shootings have usually been followed by offers of thoughts and prayers - and attacks against people in both parties who are seen to be politicizing mass shootings - House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said Thursday Congress should remove restrictions it has imposed that prevent the federal government from studying mental health issues that lead to gun violence.

"Republicans" will do no such thing. And if one or two try something even so mild as rescinding NRA imposed, imo, bans on government funding for studies on gun violence those one or two will be gone soon enough. This is just more not-credible handwringing from one or two Republicans and from usatoday.

17 people killed by a completely crazy kid with a gun.
That makes 18 school shootings in 2018.
Please bear in mind that is American children being killed in school.
Doing nothing, and worrying about your own gun rights first will do
nothing to keep American children safe in school.
Change has to happen.

My post was _obviously_ critical of the headline which claims that "some Republicans" are making gun control noises.

Again:

BTW, it's also obvious you have no idea what the actual source of most gun deaths in the US is. You might check wikipedia one of these days to find out how guns most often wind up killing the most people.

(Hint: It's gun owners' own accidents, domestic disputes, suicides. These mass shootings are a tiny, if awful, sliver of the entire mortality picture.)

Alas, many of these gun-totin' fools will continue to defend the right for any civilian to own semi-automatic and even fully automatic firearms.

The second amendment may have made some sense at the time it was written, but has become probably the most misinterpreted and outdated statement in our Constitution. While at one time in our history, it might have been justified as a civilian defense against an uncertain federal government, it has now mainly a license to kill.

Exactly. The Government's FBI was notified that the violent Democrat who killed 17 innocent little children in Florida recently was planning murder. They chose not to act. President Trump has been in office for more than a year. Isn't it about time the Democrat's FBI turn its attention away from seeing to it that Clinton's elderly wife wins the presidency and turn its attention to apprehending violent Democrats before they go on murderous killing rampages? Let's do in for the children.

When the Constitution was ratified in 1785, this was a different world. Everyone needed a gun to protect their own families and guns for hunting. Back then there were no police forces and most of the time people had to take the law into their own hands.

Common sense tells you that nobody needs an AR-15 or an AK-47 unless you are in the military or in law enforcement. I believe this time Congress is going to ignore the NRA and get up off of their lazy a**es and do something about banning the sale of these assault weapons. It is about time that they do something to prevent the deaths of anymore of our innocent children. To Hell with the NRA

Shall not be infringed Sandra. You lose. I win. And the Virginia Tech shooter used a pistol and killed more people than the nut in Florida did. What we need is a law that punishes people for speaking out against the NRA or questioning the Second Amendment. AR-15s in the hands of responsible gun owners save more lives every day than cops and the military together.

"You win, I lose". What a stupid thing to say. When 17 innocent children lose their lives there are certainly no "winners". Nicholas Cruz bought a weapon legally. Did that make him a responsible gun owner? Hell no.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment but I am not totally obsessed with it like you are. Responsible people should be allowed to have guns for their family's protection and for hunting. Nobody will ever convince me that the average person needs as assault weapon and bump stocks., especially a drug addict, an alcoholic or anyone who is spaced out on antidepressants. This includes 50% of this nation.

Antidepressants don't cause people to "space out"
