There's stupid and then there's the special brand of stupid "Notice" brings to the party.
You should change your name to "Foot in Mouth".

Because you found ONE and you think it changes the way the other 25 think, it doesn't, not in the least!!!
As for what this ONE PERSON thinks about Guns, sure fine, there are a small percentage of people in this country who feel that way, why would you think that makes all the difference? It doesn't, one in 26 families thinks that way, it doesn't end the debate like you are thinking it does.
Look, I'd like to see two things and that's all the concern I have...
Background checks for every initial sale, period. You have to suffer background checks for almost anything today, buying guns should be no exception.
Registration of every Gun sold with transfers.
And that's it, do those things and we can trace how guns are getting into the hands of the wrong people.
Oh and it would hurt if "responsible gun owners" actually were RESPONSIBLE, such as the owner of the guns used in Newtown. A REAL responsible gun owner does not let her CHILD have access to them and makes DAMN SURE they don't!

And you should try having something relevant to say instead of your tired attack prose! Since you think you have the right to tell me what I should do, YOU should STFU unless you have something to say besides your quippy little BS attacks.
#64 Feb 21, 2013
Notice, you really should try decaf. Or stop smoking crack.
Have a good life. Enjoy your eventual heart attack.

As usual dumbass, we can count on you to provide misinformation...the vast majority of people in our country want our constitutional freedoms left alone...nice try pulling the 1 in 26 family BS out of your ass.
Massachusetts requires every person to take an approved "Firearms Safety Course", obtain a License to Carry (FID card, and has many restrictions imposed on the transporting of legally purchased firearms and ammunition. The local police department or state police will perform a background check on every person applying for such a license and they may issue a lesser license to carry than requested. Massachuseets already has a ban against assault weapons and any weapons that would have a magazine capable of more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which is also a violation of the issued "license to carry". Massachusetts gun laws also provide requirements that determine how weapons and ammunition must be stored if not being carried...they must be locked in a safe or a gun lock must be provided to render the weapon unable to be used.
Massachusetts further requires all sales and/or transfers of weapons to be registered with the state:
so, why don't you try reading a little bit before you get your normal case of diarrhea of the mouth...
BTW...you don't have to worry about that irresponsible gun owner for her mistake asshole...she is dead!
#66 Feb 21, 2013
Like I've said more than once F-U Factless, I wasn't talking to you!
For mone thing, she's dead by her own gun, doesn't make me an asshole, makes her a dead one!
And as for all your strident MA laws, each state has their own, OH WOW< WHAT A CONCEPT, consider in your facltess brain, that guns can be purchased in AZ like you buy bottled water!!!!
IS it a stretch to imagine that's how they cross boarders and get into the wrongs hands here in MA?!!?!?!?
That's it, don't BS your way into a discussion with me, I've proven you to be a LIAR, more than once, FOS at all times, and you've already agreed to stay away from me, so stop trying to sleaze your way back in as if none of all that has hapened already!
You're a F-ING LIAR!!!!!! Go spread your BS over others who may not have proven this already because I have and time will not change that!!!

"As Washington begins the fight on gun control in earnest, a new poll from Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health should bolster Democrats pushing for new firearms regulations.
According to the survey, released today, a majority of Americans support a wide array of policies being discussed in Congress: 89 percent support closing the so-called gun show loophole by requiring background checks for all firearms sale; 69 percent support banning the sale of semiautomatic assault weapons; while 68 percent support banning the sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines. Meanwhile, more than 80 percent favor prohibiting “high-risk individuals” from having guns, including those convicted of a serious crime as a juvenile or those convicted of violating a domestic-violence restraining order."
"To gain further insight, the Johns Hopkins researchers over-sampled gun owners and people living in homes with guns.“Not only are gun owners and non-gun-owners very much aligned in their support for proposals to strengthen U.S. gun laws,” said study co-author Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research,“but the majority of NRA members are also in favor of many of these policies.” For instance, the survey found that 74 percent of NRA members supported universal background checks for all firearm sales.
Of the 31 different gun policies researchers asked about, a majority of Americans supported all but four.“This research indicates high support among Americans, including gun owners in many cases, for a wide range of policies aimed at reducing gun violence,” said lead study author Colleen Barry, an associate professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health."

If you think I GAS about you bozo's killing yourselves you should think again, more than half of the gun deaths are of the owners gun!!!
Fine by me, I'm only bothered when the worst of you decide to take others with you!!!
"The role of guns in suicide is receiving renewed attention in the national debate over firearms violence after the shootings in Newtown, Conn. About 19,000 of the more than 31,000 gun-related deaths in the USA each year are due to suicide — far outnumbering gun-related homicides."

#71 Feb 22, 2013
Notice is a psycho, probably related to Lynch.
#72 Feb 22, 2013
Sonny, I mean notice is a sycho and may very well be related to Lynch. They think the same...how ridiculous to beleive that creating tougher gun laws will do anything about stopping anyone that wants to do harm with a gun. All it does it create a safe place (gun free zones) for the perpetrator to do the damage.
If these schools were not "gun free zones" and a shooter had to consider if someone there was armed and could take action, that may be a detterent...otherwise, you might as well put a big bullseye on the front of the school and say come shoot us, we aren't protected.
#73 Feb 22, 2013
Of course, the messenger is the problem for you, here once again, F-U Factless!!!!!! You're a scumbag. Nice of you to focus on Schools, do we need Military posts at every Movie Theatre? GAs Station? Convenience store? McDonalds? Hospitals? Every T stop? Every rooftop?
"how ridiculous to beleive that creating tougher gun laws will do anything about stopping anyone"
How F-Ing ridiculous do you have to be to actually believe that Laws do not prevent things??? Why have any laws at all if they serve no purpose?!!
F-U LIAR IN CHIEF!!!!!!!! You're a class A idiot!
#74 Feb 22, 2013
For anyone that has any common sense, which obviously leaves out notice, designating schools as "gun free zones" pretty much ensures that anyone that wants to inflict maximum carnage and emotional damage on our society, by going after our children can do so with little resistance. Who's to stop them? The kids? The teachers?
If we were to take away all legal guns, who really thinks that would prevent someone from obtaining a gun illegally...thats the point. If someone is going to commit a crime with a gun, they won't do it legally, they will do it illegally. They will steal another person's gun or otherwise obtain one, but you won't stop them from getting one.
We might as well paint a bullseye on all of our schools, because that is what our current laws have done. Am I comfortable with arming people at our schools? I will tell you I am uncomfortable knowing that any intruder with any kind of weapon can easily use our schools and our children to inflict maximum emotional damage, and kill our kids.
So instead of protecting our children, many think they can solve the problem by further limiting our ability to defend ourselves...wrong answer and it will result in more of our kids being slaughtered.
The thing that pisses me off the most is that our President along with many others continues to pray on our emotions instead of using some logic in dealing with the problem...how many times have you made a proper decision based on emotional responses?
#75 Feb 22, 2013
Eyah except, nobody is trying to take away your guns meathead. We're demanding we get control over the illegal ones.
"You'll never be able to"
Is just a cry of BS. If we defaulted to that, we'd never get anything at all done ever on any subject!!!!!!!!!!
Oh well, we just can't do anything, we must just have to accept that we live in MAd Max land?!!??!
Sorry LIAR, that's not the case, we can and will solve this problem.
And BTW, why aren't you addressing the LIES you told about what the American people think about this??? It was a boatload of LIES you'd just like to forget and have everyone still believe the current BS your slinging!
Address your LIES LIAR!!!!!!!
#76 Feb 22, 2013
You are the MAN!! The entire country is against you but for a girl you have big balls and stand up! Weeeee!!!!!
#77 Feb 22, 2013
Oh gee great thanks for the headsup, it's good to know "the entire country is against me", wow, deep, really, very sophisticated input, must have thought about that one for most of your day.
The TRUTH, more than 70% ARE against you! Typical Republican I guess, whatever they say, the opposite is usually a good bet!
#78 Feb 22, 2013
Just going by the map there Harry Nopottopissin.
#79 Feb 22, 2013
Wow, yep I get it, you think the topix vote actaully represents "the entire country".
Tell us, any reason why that might not be the case?
#80 Feb 22, 2013
