Another great pollutician proposing legislation for things she has NO idea about.
This is a so called "common sense" gun control proponent.

I guess my position is based on a lot of emotion since my only son was murdered in 2005 by a gun in a robbery. I have had no real taste for guns since that time. Keep on needlessly arming the people with dangerous weapons if you wish.I apologize for my ignorance.

And for that I am truly sorry for your loss. No parent should EVER have to bury a child.

And while I can sympathize with you for that, you seem to forget that a criminal murdered your son, not a gun. That you old such hatred for an inanimate object is disturbing.

Needlessly? Are you kidding? Your own son is another statistic PROVING that disarming law-abiding citizens is a reckless and thoughless way to deal with criminals in this country!!!

Don't apologize, educate yourself on the matter.
Again, I'm sorry about your son. May he rest in peace.

The second amendment gives us the right to bear arms and we should never give up the right to defend ourselves and our families. Criminals will always have guns and we need to be able to protect our homes from them.

That's where you're wrong. Feinstein is already on record...
"All told, HR2038 is a giant step closer to the goal stated by the assault-weapons ban sponsor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on CBS "60 Minutes": "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them -- Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in -- I would have done it."

Yeah, that's no substance, eh Oscar? All they need are 2/3 of both Houses to get the ball rolling.

But there are far more anti-gun Democrats than Republicans.

You obviously lack that common sense and show an amazing lack of knowledge about firearms.
Automatics are legal for those whoo purchase the proper stamps. When was the last time you personally heard of a shooting by an owner of one of those? When was the last time you heard of any crime committed by an automatic weapon?
Close to half of all hunting rifles are semi-automatic. If they are so bad, why isn't the murder rate much higher?
Why are semi-auto hadguns so much worse than revolvers?
<quoted text>
Really? And shotguns don't? Revolcvers don't? Mine have never killed anyone. Does that mean they're defective?
Can you produce just one Operating Manual from one of those guns that says its purpose is "to kill other human beings"??
Are the semi-autos used by hunters to hunt game defective because they only killed animals?
If the over 20,000 Federal, State, County, Municipal, and City laws on firearms not "common sense", how many more would be?
Or do you believe there is a law out there waiting to be written and passed that would make a criminal suddenly obey it??
<quoted text>We don't like innocent people shot up in so called "Gun Free Zones" which amount to killing fields because the criminals know they can go in and exact maximum carnage without anyone to stop them.
Columbine and Virginia Tech are other great examples.
Guess the "common sense gun laws" crowd prefer to have students and theater patrons beg for their lives rather than having a means to protect themselves. How noble!
To update, I can imagine that the Sandy Fork incident has all of you licking your chops that more events like this can happen with your sacred weapons. How many kids do we kill before you wake up?

You sick SOB!!! You no doubt danced in the blood of the victims because you felel it furthers your grisly cause. At the same time, you all but took a dump on your son's grave.

How many attacks, assaults, and rapes will it take before you figure out that the problem is criminals, not guns?
Your son is looking down right now saying "Thanks a lot Dad, you're making a complete ass of yourself by tarnishing my memory!"

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.[
