Urban advocates say new gun control talk overdue

Dec 22, 2012 Full story: Boston.com 58

It took a small-town slaughter for gun control to become a political priority. Now, decades' worth of big-city arguments against easy access to guns are finally being heard, because an unstable young man invaded an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., with a military-style assault rifle and 30-bullet clips.

Are these the same thumb-sucking, bed-wetting liberals that enact gun laws, such as, ADVERTISING - "Gun Free" School Zones and Malls So some crazed fool can foist his/her massacre plan on innocent people, knowing full well that honest citizens having authorized concealed carry permits
who have been gun plucked from the premises so they can do their evil deed at their Leasure without interference, hmmm?

The disgusting words that Wayne LaPierre read yesterday were the longest suicide note ever by a special interest group. The reaction by many conservatives showed just how desperate and out of touch the NRA is.

We will look back in 10 years and realize that it was the Sandy Hook massacre - were a right-wing nut mother who probably listened to Glen Beck’s fear mongering and trained her mentally unstable right-wing nut son to shoot semi-automatic weapons – that started the laws to scaled back the 2nd Amendment.

Each time of a new tragedy, the essence of the perpetrator reflects the influence of a Leftist influence encouraging, validating extreme behavior in our youth and entertainment. Each time it is more extreme, reflecting the strident reactive emotional stagnation of all those cowardly satisfied with a morally depraved culture their drugged parents and they have encouraged. Decades of validating drug use and its destruction of millions of brains, irreligious insult and intellectual savagery, sexual perversion and deviance, extreme rebellion, angry atheist anarchies insulting morality itself, validations of obviously negative religions, killing tens of millions for convenience... all these come home to roost in the increased savagery and insanities actually validated by the New Left's acceptance of marginal, deranged and depraved elements being their core leaderships. Listen to their shrill reactions... seemingly incapable of recognizing, or admitting it is their influences causing more and more extreme actions by those confused by their decades old vile validations. The country needs revival, but not the Goth, wiccan, atheist, druggie, deviant revivals of denying our ability to defend ourselves and our children from the next wave loonies of the Left. These people are deranged enough to give equal standing to Satan worshipers. They have lost all credibility; their shrillness proves it.

Of course the urban core wants the guns removed from the houses of their victims.

Once guns are banned the crimminals from the urban core can attack homes with impunity.

They want the innocents disarmed just like the schools are now: defenseless.

Having urban criminals define laws controlling defensive weapons is just wrong, no matter how you cut it.

Time to focus on criminals NOT lawful citzens.

Strict gun laws for honest, law abiding people, make it open season for criminals. They know this already.

I believe that the NRA could have strengthened their image and position if they would have come out with some reasonable ideas in regards to gun control and safety education. Yes, gun control! I believe after the nauseating events in CT, the impetus and outrage of the country must be considered and respected. Do I believe that restricting me from buying an assault weapon will reduce crime? No. Nonetheless, the right answer is far more complex, with many more factors to consider than this. The NRA could be more open to background checks and identifying persons that should be disqualified from gun ownership. They need to get in front of this issue now, or they will loose a lot of ground. They are going to have to make some concessions. You all know it!
By the way, who is willing to stand in front of the families of murdered children in CT and deny that there is a problem? Maybe some of you don't agree with me, but I cannot look into the faces of those children and continue to say that I need to have hi cap magazines or no background checks.
I don't like being villianized by those who don't have or know anything about guns. I have had a great deal of training through my life with all kinds of different guns. The fact is that the NRA needs to change just as everything does. How they change is a factor controlled by their own choices. They can still follow their basic principles. The fact is that if they don't embrace any alternative ideas, they will become far less relevant as time goes by.

The NRA already became far less relevant when it changed from being an organization of shooters and gun enthusiasts to being a mouthpiece of lawyers and lobbyists for the gun manufacturers.

GUN CONTROL ! GUN CONTROL ! GUN CONTROL ! GUN CONTROL !

The democRATS are foaming at the mouth and are jubilating with the media
over the prospect of disarming law-abiding AMERICAN citizens.
They care less about the victims.

The democRATS layed the foundation for school shootings and crimes in general.
The films coming out of liberal Hollywood teaches kids to kill.
democRAT politicians received huge kickbacks from Hollywood and the makers of violent video games, and from PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES.

What changed? Here is what changed: Powerful psych drugs were developed and became the profitable, prescription answer to a wide variety of extremely questionable if not outright fabricated mental disorder diagnosis of youth.

Little Johnny doesn't want to go to school - take this pill.
Little Achnach isn't learning - take this pill.
Little Jose feels anxious - take this pill.
Little Quantisha is sad - take this pill.
Little Leroy is restless - take this pill.
Little Miguel is rebellious - take this pill.
Little Allah doesn’t want get out of bed – Take this pill.
Little Latosha has a bad hair day – Take this pill.
Albert is smarter than the other kids – Take this pill to dumb him down.

Their minds are warped; they live in an irrational world - the Twilight Zone.
The democrats have given the murderers a justification to kill.
THE SUSPECTS ARE SICK, THEY ARE RETARDED.
They didn’t know what they were going.
The culprit is always the GUN – no the person using it.
The suspects’ brains are fried from all the unnecessary psych drugs
mandated by the COMMUNIST PUBLIC education system.

Aside from this, the three groups responsible for 92% of all gun-related murders
in the United States are:

- ILLEGAL MEXICANS
- MUSLIMS
- THE GHETTO CROWD
Their conduct is politically correct and therefore condoned by liberals.

Have you ever hear of GUN CONTROL when illegal Mexicans or black gang bangers shoot babies during drive-by shootings?
Have you ever heard of liberals calling for GUN CONTROL when muslims go on jihad murder rampages in the USA?(Examples: The father & son muslim team, also known as the “DC Snipers” who killed dozens of people in the eastern States.
Muslim HASAN who went on a jihad rampage and killed dozens of Americans at Fort Hood TX).
