So LW what do you think happened at sandy Hook Elementary School December 14 , 2012 ?
I'm guessing that you believe Obama planned the slaughter in order to push through his mad gun control plan!! It's not so easy to figure out what he had to gain by his "plan". Maybe he lost money on his investment in GunBroker.com .

What I believe happened re: the incident in question is what most sane people believe. A troubled and deranged individual, who shouldn't have had access to a peashooter, broke through the doors of an elementary school, with enough firepower to mow down 26 people, including 22 children.
I also believe that if nothing is done, this will happen again and again.

Might I assume you believe that this psychotic person had the right to wield these weapons according to the second amendment?

LW do you agree that the UN should take control of the worlds governments . George H W Bush gave a speech about the NWO/UN . Obama also made a similar speech . A Republican and a Democrat both wanting to dissolve the sovereignty of the USA in favor for a one world government . What is your thought ?
That is a myth, myth. No one is talking about a one-world government. What they are talking about is cooperation among the countries of the world, in recognition of how much that world has shrunk, our inter-dependency and the need for working together. That is a far cry from your vision of doom, and America giving up its own self-rule.

This a volatile and dangerous world, now more than ever. We can either try to respect one another and work together toward common goals, or we can blow each other to kingdom come. I lean toward the first option.

Why our worst President needed a distraction, and his proposals for gun control are it. School security could have been achieved without punishing law abiding citizens.

If you mean your version of the truth, I'll never be old enough for that.
If you want my solid stand on issues, ask me solid questions.
........ That's it, right there. I'm not trying to push any idea of what the truth is on you. I have dealt directly with those in charge of this mess and know how much they lie. What for myself is the biggest truth, is a lot is being hidden. The families of the victims don't even say what drove them to become anti-gunners. Some will say, "Their kids got shot to pieces duma$$", but the kid was deranged. Why didn't they become Mental Health Zealots? Why are they such Zealots at all? Money? They all received a $45.000.00 check each so far and who knows how much for expenses? Another 26 mill$$ is in other funds as well. Apparently the computer holds a lot of answers but I think the Cops shot it. So what do you think of these questions? Then there is Blumenthal and family involvment.

This concept of yours that Obama is using the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary as a diversion from our economic issues, trivializes the death of all those murders. Those who first stepped out and asked for gun reform were the parents of the murdered children. Obama as a father, or better yet, as a human being, commiserated with the bereaved parents and lent his voice to theirs.

So far, the only ones who have been severely punished were, and continue to be, the parents of those children. And yes, they too are “law abiding citizens”.

Obama didn't plan which socks he wore today . Tell me , How did them 6 children get out if the doors were locked ? 7 if you count possum girl . How did the green car get shot ? it was behind the other cars and was struck from the side . Hell the angles don't even match . JPVance said that 2 were taken to the hospital , both died . yet the 911 caller was only hit in the foot by a ricochet , so how did she die ? Why did the sign at the firestation say Everyone must check in ? Check in ? for what ? You don't need to check in to pick up your children . Who was the 6 kids at Genes ? the man ? The bus driver ? Why did the runners wait til after an hour to run ? did they wait til the R/C helicopter could tape them ? nearly 4 months and these questions still have not been answered , why ? Where are the other "victims' f" families ? No photos ? No united way charity site for them ?

Wrong! The first person was not the families, it was Sweinstein who had a bill ready to go on Saturday the day after the shooting. The school was an active crime scene, and instead of morning or condolences Sweinstein is talking semi auto bans. Now that is using a tragedy.

I am curious why only 11 or 12 of the victim families are active with the gun abolishment movement. What do the others think. I watched the public hearings and one victim's father said current laws should be enforced and no new laws are needed. Why are the other voices louder than his, and no disrespect to the families, but they are being used by the political machine.

So you STILL believe in Sandy Hoax?
Once again:
— Where are the autopsy reports, and death certificates for all of the victims?
— Where is the toxicologist's report, along with the autopsy for Adam Lanza?
— WHERE is that 'security recording' made by the security cameras which had been recently installed, tested, and certified at that school?
— WHERE are the pictures of the crime scene?

There are none, because THEY DO NOT EXIST!

In Mountain California, a man with a gun shot a robber in the leg during a robbery. No one else was hurt. This happens hundreds of times aday around the country, but you never hear of them unless you go to Drudge report.

Yes, it is, in the consideration that YOU took NO TIME AT ALL to address the statements put to you.

Are YOU afraid to engage in a serious discussion where YOU will have to BACKUP YOUR 'assumptions?'

I will not address "statements" from someone who thinks foaming at the mouth is a sign of intelligence.
