<quoted text>No, dead kids and teachers are simply the price we pay for your liberal "feel good" policies on crime and punishment. How many of your 32000 gun deaths are committed by repeat offenders? By someone on bail for another charge? By someone on parole or probation? By someone with known mental illness and violent tendencies? How many are suicides with multiple attempts? The second amendment has absolutely nothing to do with those individuals walking free among us able to kill others or themselves at will. Take those individuals out of the equation and the violence will be reduced drastically. Please try to be honest.
I don't know...how many?

Do you know or are you just pulling "facts" out of your ass again?

LOL!

I NEVER said the children should be held responsible, you f**king idiot..
You don't remember making EDUCATION your first point, Sticky?

Here's a thought: Make the adult TOTALLY responsible.

A gun left where a child can touch it at any time: it's the ADULT'S fault.

1. educating the young,
First one.

Funny how you left out educating the adults that you say are responsible... though I can't remember you making such a statement.

A child is shot dead when he picks up his daddy's gun.

Who is responsible?

Putting aside the father.

Who would be next in line?

If people like you make excuses for people to allow hand guns to fall into the laps of young children, why aren't you held partially responsible?

Many argue for trigger locks and safes: do you want to pretend a trigger lock would not prevent these deaths?

And since when did educating kids make them responsible for anything, asshat??? Of course it is the parents who are responsible, and I have stated as much on MULTIPLE occasions.

And if you follow the link I posted before, 67.5% of violent repeaters are rearrested for another violent crime within three years of release. If they are still a threat to society...why are turned back out onto the streets???
This doesn't answer the question.

How many annual shootings are committed by someone who shot someone before or have a history of violent mental illness?

Tell the truth - you don't know the answer, do you?

You truly are a lying piece of f-ing shit. I have made NO EXCUSES for irresponsible behavior FROM ANYONE! The only people I am responsible for are myself and my family. I have thoroughly educated them on the safe handling of firearms BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT A RESPONSIBLE PARENT DOES. If trigger locks are all that they have available, and every new gun comes with one from the factory as mandated by law, then they should be used. I will ask you the same question I asked Dan......HOW DO YOU LEGISLATE RESPONSIBILITY??? If the kids have irresponsible parents, then they better be taught by someone on what to do, or it could end in disaster.

On a personal night:
I personally don't like trigger locks. They make the firearm useless in an emergency due to them taking so long to get off. I keep a loaded handgun in my nightstand at night, and it gets locked in a gun cabinet when it is not under my direct control, along with the rest of my firearms.

What's so humorous about children getting killed by firearms left where they could put there hands on them, Sticky?

"Educating them"- you do remember saying that it was your FIRST priority- is a way of shifting responsibility from the ADULTS who own the gun and who are supposed to keep them out of the hands of children AT ALL TIMES onto the child.

Putting aside it doesn't work.

Here's a thought: make the adults TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FIREARMS in their home.

A totally responsible parent keeps his toys locked up at all times- in a safe or secured in some fashion so the children he is responsible don't have access, not for thinking his lectures about not touching firearms provides them with any safety whatsoever.

And unless the parent can keep his/her weapons absolutely secure at all times in the house with minors, he/she has no right to have them.

We have told you dozens of times and you spend all your time on funny puns about children being killed by firearms.

The purpose of law is not to "legislate" responsibility.

It is to set standards our society lives by, and set punishment for those who break them.

Speed limits do not legislate responsibility.

Speed laws declare 70 MPH legal to drive, and 71 MPH illegal, and to set a fine of X dollars for breaking the law.

Trigger locks cost as low as $10 and are OFTEN GIVEN AWAY FREE, and you want to whine about hand guns costing $500 and insist you will only buy a trigger lock if someone makes you buy it?

You don't know how many????? You're going to beat people over the head with a statistic and you don't even know how it breaks down? How many of that 32000 are justifiable police/self-defense shootings? Or do you want folks to believe that all 32000 are cases of negligence/stupidity? How many of that 32000 were committed by someone with no prior record? I haven't pulled any facts from anywhere, I've simply asked some very pertinent questions.(you know, those questions you hate so much and avoid answering at any cost) You don't know these things yet based on that statistic you've decided that ALL law abiding gun owners should be restricted. Do you know what the term "spray and pray" means? It describes your mentality on gun control pretty accurately.
Try again, Danny Boy.......
