    No one is allowed to identify the problem, because that’s “politicizing” it.

    Does that finger mean “no accountability”?

    Don’t accuse his trigger finger? And, who would guess the NRA is a “lefty”??

    No pointing the finger at the obvious problem.

    Budweiser doesn’t make a product intentionally designed to KILL PEOPLE! Not only kill, but the weapons being protested are designed specifically to kill large numbers of people, quickly.

    Yes, tigger, drunk driving remains a serious problem, but cell phones are taking over the lead in killing people on the road, so maybe the laws banning there use by people driving should be more strictly enforced, and those models most dangerous should be banned???

    The problem is in the mirror.
    Of the shooter.

    There are more constraints on buying liquor than there are on buying many guns.
    On your suggestion to raise the drinking age, however:

    One track minds. The NRA – a group of people that advocate the legal and safe use of guns for hunting and sport (target) shooting are being blamed for the acts of mentally ill people and criminals.

    Which one of the 300+ laws already on the books regulating the purchase, storage and use of guns would have kept this latest tragedy from happening? What law can you write that will keep a criminal from obtaining and using the gun of his choice? So you ban “assault” weapons. Specifically guns like the AK-47 or the AR-15. Did you know that more people were killed with hand, fists or feet (745) than with rifles (358) in 2010?

    But wait, the AK-47 and the M16A1 are the military weapons that are the standard for “assault” weapons. These weapons can fire fully automatic. The AK-47 at 600 rounds per minute and the M16 at 700-950 rounds per minute. Whew. Lots of hot lead. Yep. Both have a standard 30 round magazine. So if you snap in a magazine and pull the trigger you are done in 3 seconds or less. How many of those guns do we have in the civilian population today? The answer? NONE! They are illegal. So “assault” weapons are ALREADY banned in this country.

    The AR-15 – the civilian version of the M16 – is a semi-automatic as is the civilian versions of the AK-47. Yes they have 30 round magazines and a proficient shooter can empty that magazine quickly, albeit one shot at a time. I have a hand gun that will do the same thing.

    Guns and there availability are not the problem. Someone has to decide to take that gun and use it to kill others. How do you get to that decision? Find the answer to that.

    Well shoot, when China calls for the American people to be disarmed who can argue? I mean their record of how they treat their citizens who have no means to defend themselves is so wonderful. Didn’t Mao kill over 70 million unarmed citizens when he took over? Yep.

    I heard NRA membership and contributions have tanked.

    And that members are tearing up the membership cards.

    About 25 years ago, a house up the street from mine caught fire. The fire dept. responded but were unable to approach the burning house because of the exploding ammunition. They had to let it burn down.

    I suppose that would be good IF everyone obeyed that law. But, here in Florida, every time I purchase a gun I must fill out a form and provide name address place of birth and answer a bunch of questions. When I got my
    CWP, I was fingerprinted and background checked. I had to provide proof of my ability to safely use that gun. So, in effect, Florida does register all “lawfully” purchased guns and their owners.

    Again, how does one identify someone who should not be in possession of any type of weapon and how do you keep them from obtaining one? How does one identify a person that is likely to come to that insane conclusion that they need to take a weapon into an elementary school and kill children?

    The gun is not the problem.

    You say: “There are enough unregistered gun collections in America to supply most third world countries.”

    Can you qualify your assumption with a verified study?
