"An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life"
- - Robert A. Heinlein
More shoot-outs like we had in the (Hollywood)Ole West is what we need! America was built on the shoot-out......More guns sales will make everything alright...."Hey Johnny, remember to put your bullet-proof vest on before you go to school!"
Really, you think that any form of gun-control is somehow trying to take law-abiding citizens guns away? "Background checks don't work!" Hmmmmm, yes, they will not work as long as OTHER states sell guns like candy, and anyone can buy a gun with no background check at gun shows.....Why don't you just send each of the gun manufacturers a $1000 check to make them (Profit) happy?
"Hey Shooter, ...."guess which ones are packing"
These shooters are cowards for the most part....and no laws will stop ANYONE who wants to possess a fire arm.....
When someone threatens your children....YOU KILL THEM!
Someone KILLED 15 children and 2 hero teachers (You know, the people all you righties say are overpaid!)....The easiest way to DIS-prove the "More & more & more guns are the answer!!!" crap is to look at the theater shooting in CO....50 people would have been guns blazing away in the dark......Maybe 40-100 people dead....Brilliant!
The gun companies have been leading you down a path for years, just like tobacco; Gun rights YES! But gun lunacy NO!
Keep the damn guns out of the hands of crazies and criminals....FULL background checks for everyone, anywhere...Federal law, blanket coverage of the country; Are you a responsible gun owner? Then you pass......Are you a criminal (Not tickets, or spitting on the sidewalk, I'm talking serious crimes!) or have a major mental health situation? Then you can NOT buy a gun.
How hard is it? And yes, I get the problem with >>>WHO decides WHO is a criminal and/or who is nuts<<< (Everyone in this country is nuts! Just ask the liberals (The conservatives are nuts!!!) and the conservatives (The liberals are nuts!!!!)....Sadly, we ALL......KNOW.....that the politicians are nuts!
This is not easy, but it would be better to do something >>>BI<<< partisan, and make it actually WORK! Not smoke-screen legislation, so the law-makers can claim one thing or the other.....DO IT, and do it PROPERLY!
It amazes me how little empathy some of you have......That guy......What would you be saying if your kids were murdered by a kid with a gun? "Gotta get more guns out there!"....? I doubt it....
“As expected, gunman is on meds, police visit his house 36 times, he's expelled, his classmates say he's most likely to shoot up a campus, his FB page says he wants to be a famous school shooter, the FBI pays him a visit and you want to blame access to guns.”
Yes.....a kid could kill a few people with a knife......But a machine gun is a whole 'nother thing! If you don't get that then you are incapable of understanding anything. I remember when I was in HS, I was told not to bring a knife to school......My thought at the time was "I could stab and kill someone with a pencil....Why worry about a knife?"
Cars, aircraft, etc serve a purpose other than killing....Guns are for one thing only; Killing.
I am not saying ban all guns.....We have the right to bear arms.....But walking around having shootouts all the time.....Back in the (REAL) old west, as soon as a town got a sheriff, they would have everyone leave their guns at home when coming to town....This is a real fact!
All the shootouts, indians scalping and massacring, etc was BS manufactured by the "Winners", the white christians who had used their "Fire-sticks" to wipe out almost every native american here. Most of the wild west actually came from the confederate soldiers having absolutely nothing after the war- Just like we have had Vietnam vets going crazy, or the stupid hells angles gang. Take care of returning vets properly and you don't have that problem!
I fully understand that you have been indoctrinated to hate science, hate facts, hate anything that isn't written in the bible, but if you want to make >>>CORRECT<<< decisions, you need to actually know the REAL facts.
Keep.......the guns.......out of the hands......of crazies and criminals! Stop allowing loop-holes! It is that simple......Are YOU law-abiding, intelligent gun owner/enthusiasts, or are you fools being used by the gun manufacturers to help their bottom line?
