    I would like to know what do you think he would do if could? Maybe ban every weapon ever made? Think that would help? How? Laws are for people who follow them. Criminals will find guns. There's 350 million of them out there.
    Also maybe we should try,
    Banning them all - been tried in a couple cities andidn'tnt work
    Ban automatics - just makes the shooter have to pull the trigger for every shot and guns can be easily modified to be autos again.
    Waiting period - maybe for a handgun if you do it the legal way
    and on and on.
    Last do you really think that the most of us that have them will give up our guns? I live 10 milesBaltimoretimore city (as the crow flies). You think there is a chance I will no matter what the law is?
    Like a cop from Wash DC told me. I would rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

    To interpret the last post, "I just stepped in a pile of dog shit and I like it."

    O just sets the pace for his followers and the rest just fall in step. Are we thinking the same thing?

How about that skinny turd with poor basketball skills show the way by opening up HIS background for all to see???? I'd personally like to see the timeline when he was living at Bill Ayers' house and going to school..... Or when he traveled to Pakistan at a time US citizens were not allowed to???? Or, why he has a Social Security number issued in Ct., and he never lived/went there???...

    I believe background checks should be far tighter - on voters, not firearm owners.

    From an on-line answer page.

    The FBI estimates that there are over 200 million privately-owned firearms in the US. If you add those owned by the military, law enforcement agencies and museums, there is probably about 1 gun per person in the country.

    If you want to get a rough idea of how many guns there are out there just look at how many people you see out there then multiply by a factor of estimated ownership. The last best guess was about 350,000,000 Total. That would be 1 weapon for every man woman and child. The average gun enthusiast owns several firearms which includes pistols, shotguns, and rifles of all makes and models. It is often estimated that about 1 in 4 people own any firearms and on average firearms owners own 4 guns each.


    Any new type of gun control now is like closing the gate after the cows have gone. Quit beating up on us legal owners and go after the ones that are dealing the illegal ones..... like the Justice Department.

    A tighter background check would have done nothing (kind of like Ram and Zombie at work) to stop this from happening. It's not the current regulations. Most criminals don't buy legally anyways. If you put tighter restrictions on gun purchases, it just means legitimate buyers won't be able to buy them. The criminals will continue to get them. You can ban all the guns you want in the US (I don't support this by the way) but you won't be able to stop the black market. You just create a need for smuggling. We can't stop drugs and illegals from coming into the country, You think you're going to stop guns?
    Japan has one of the toughest gun laws as citizens are not allowed to own handguns, yet they have gun violence because the gangs have guns. They also do not let half the political correctness crap going on. If you do the crime, you do the time.
    Switzerland requires gun ownership. They also have a very low death rate from gun violence. They too do not give in to political correctness.

    Lets make a deal with Ozero...We'll run tighter background checks for guns if we can have citizens show a picture ID before voting.

    "Never let a good crisis go to waste". Shameful exploitation of a terrible massacre. He didn't even wait for the dead to be buried.
