Of course, only the NRA and their fellow travelers would put the blame on video games when they put the assault weapon in this killer's hands.
Some Americans think they have no place, they have a time and place even in civilian hands.

Please get help for your tiny dick fixation.

It's idiocy, both you and I know the 2nd amendment refers to muskets -- nothing more nothing less.

The first victim in Newtown was heavily armed and now she's dead because of it – clearly the argument for more guns is hardly the answer to the problem. An argument can be made that the 2nd amendment is hopelessly outdated and obsolete – every gun needs to be registered on a yearly bases and require liability insurance. The wingnuz clinging to their guns like a baby clinging to its woobie is reminiscent to the creationist nonsense! We know more about nature and its evolutionary continuum than ever before and we know it clearly and without a doubt, yet here are the wingnuz, knowing it better by regression like a bunch of degenerates! Next time you see a member of Congress pushing a pro-gun agenda, ask them why they feel the U.S. government needs to be overthrown. Ask them why they support terrorism. The Second Amendment has been voided by history and was never in place for any of the reasons the NRA, any senator or congressman has given as a reason for opposing sensible gun regulation since Reconstruction. Besides, the 2nd amendment has nothing to do with gun-control in a modern society!
You again spout inaccurate information. The first victim was Lanza’s mother. You claim she was heavily armed because she owned guns. It was her son that shot her, do you think she was armed inside her home to defend against a family member? You go on to claim she was killed because of the guns. That presumes Lanza would only kill with a gun and that he could only get a gun from her collection.

You further claim that incident proves more guns aren’t the answer. Using your logic and methodology I can prove more guns do save lives simply by using the incident involving the Loganville, GA woman. Honest answers require more data.

Now you want to require liability insurance for gun ownership? I’ve owned guns for years and have many friends that own guns. Combine it all and it’s thousands of guns, none have been involved in a crime.

You like to tout the phrase modern society. How is that relevant to gun control? Take that same Georgia woman. What might have happened if she was forced to wait for police to arrive? Would she be alive? Would her children be harmed? She did the right thing and you want to take self-defense away from women like her.

Right as I type this there is a bad situation in Alabama. An armed man got on a school bus and killed the bus driver and kidnapped a 5 year old off the bus. He didn't know the boy, he just picked one of the children at random. He's holding the child in an underground bunker and for three days police have been unable to get into it without the boy being killed. Alabama is a gun state where guns are legal.
A few days ago a six year old girl was shot in New Mexico. Someone Began shooting at someone out on the street and a stray bullet went though her bedroom wall and hit her in bed. New Mexico is a gun state where guns are legal.
Violence is 'everywhere'. It's just worse in older larger cities. But killing is everywhere.
Don't let your hatred for your own President warp your mind. There's too much violence and it has to be stopped.
Violence isn’t everywhere. We have a population of over 300 million people. We have instant access to information which allows us to learn about more incidents.

Violent crime has plummeted over the past three decades despite a sharp increase in gun ownership. Explain that.

See my last post.
Btw, gun laws do not work if all a criminal has to do is drive out of the city limits or to anther state to get guns. Criminals find that easy to do. The proof is that so many criminals have them.
What this is about is getting as many as possible out the hands of criminals and dangerous people.
The vast majority of murder committed with firearms is done with pistols. Do try to cross state lines to buy a gun. To buy from a dealer you still have to complete a 4473, endure a background check and they’ll ship the firearm to a FFL in your state. Most states will permit the sale of long guns for non-residents to be carried with them immediately. Have you ever researched how most criminals obtain their firearms? You would be surprised based on your “proof”.

Interesting that you claim keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous people. How do you accomplish that if they’ve never committed a crime? How do you determine if someone is dangerous?

You rely on liberal talking points. What percentage of firearms used in Chicago were obtained using your assumptions?

Why would you deny second amendment rights to law abiding citizens?

We don’t have a gun problem, we do in fact have a criminal problem. There’s a simple way to reduce violent crime, legalize drugs and lock up violent criminals forever.

From Connecticut, home of the Enfield Rifle, from Enfield ,Ct. Also the home of Sturm-Ruger, Charter Arms and Colt. It's become apparent why the politicians have bought off the parents of the slain children,(the constant anti-gun parade), but now I ask, how? How does one justify not asking for the true motive of such a crime? How does one find the strength to go on "tour"? How does one not cry?

Bitter?
Teabaggers are the ones that are "bitter" about everything Obama has ever done.
Whining is more like it, from Rannity, Limbaughtomy and Beck.
Anyone who doesn't follow "lockstep" with these idiots are called communist. socialist and every name under the sun and now that Obama has been re elected, it's party before country.

If teabaggers were so concerned about the "pork" in the bill, why didn't they identify the members who added the riders to the bills?
They could have publicly announced who attached these riders and they would have been stripped in a week.
Instead, they obstructed and whined.
So much for being "concerned".
"Citizens may choose to live in a free country or in a totalitarian, authoritarian state centrally controlled and regulated to dominate all aspects of life".
Unless it's somones bedroom or a vagina.
"High tax rates are another assault on our freedom because the more the government taxes and spends the more powerful it becomes. Although taxes are necessary, governments will spend every dollar they can tax, and will increase taxes rather than cut waste or increase efficiency".
I agree with this, somehow this "principle", seems teabaggers don't.
They NEVER mention that, instead they automatically go right for the cuts or privatization.
Schools and the military are prime examples.
"Promises have been made that cannot be fulfilled. Reform is needed to save the necessary social safety net while not destroying the economy".
See above.
What about the republican created, sponsored and signed "Patriot Act"?
<Crickets>
"The government is spending at an unsustainable rate. The longer we put off fiscal restraint, the worse we will suffer and larger the calamity will be".
No mention of this, until a democrat is in office and positively will not make cuts to the bloated, wasteful Military Industrial Complex or even try to streamline it to make it more cost effective.
Poor teabagger.
The Patriot Act is anything but patriotic. You choose to blame Republicans. You might want to review the vote

No, you aren't being antisemitic. You just don't care for 'jews'.
Hey bigot: Norm Coleman, Rated A by the NRA, indicating a pro-gun rights voting record.
So you can't say you haven't heard of a pro-gun "jew" politician.
......No, I don't care for the jews that get into office in this country and then manipulate our foreign policy for their own purpose. I don't like the jews that own media and repress the truth, like about this shooting. I don't like the jews that get into public office and think our tax money is theirs to hand out to their friends and themselves. I don't like jews that think they are entitled to a free ride on my taxes because their grand-daddy was a victim of the holocaust. And you can put gentile, christian, aethiest or muslim in any sentence there, and take out jew, and I'll feel the same. There is a group called "Jews Against Guns", but you have pointed out the only one I have heard of that is pro-gun. I also can't stand dirty jew lawyers who create laws to make it "legal" to steal. And you can put any nationality , culture or creed in that sentence as well. What I do like, and support, are Americans holding office to serve their constituents, not the majority of the trash in the lead here in Ct. I'm still looking for some Americans in charge and have been let down so far as to include the U.S. Attorney here. It doesn't matter what race, ethnicity, creed, nationality, I hate being lied to and robbed by crooked politicians.

Firearms exist to manage situations where rationality has failed, so thinking rationally about them can be hard if not impossible. That's why it is so difficult to argue with most gun-rights advocates – they are not rational. They're a bunch of scared people, led by the NRA, frightened of the world and their ability to manage it. I'm not talking about people who hunt or enjoy target practice; I'm talking about the cult of maximum firepower types. Guns that exist for the sole purpose of killing large numbers of people as rapidly as possible have no place in public hands and should be banned or, at least, left at the shooting range! if you can’t agree with that, well ... you got some serious mental issues!
