    It is important to know that states with strict gun laws DO have lower overall gun death rates. While not every country with strict gun laws has a low gun death rate, it is true that every country has – among other things in common – strict gun regulation. Switzerland, which has nearly as high gun ownership as the US, also has extremely rigid gun regulations including mandatory and repeated training, strict limits on which guns can be kept on the home, how much ammunition can be kept in the home, and serious background checking. You can’t stop every madman from attacking the innocents, but this is a small fraction of overall gun deaths – and you CAN reduce those numbers with proper NATIONAL regulation. (We don’t have national regulation which makes it easy to transport weapons across state lines. In NYC, 90% of the weapons used in crimes were brought in from states where gun purchasing is easy and virtually unregulated).

    Following Varvel’s jackass logic… why are we banning drugs?

    More guns in kindergartens. What could possibly go wrong?

    Misleading subtext. Nobody is proposing banning guns. Nobody.

    Remember that it was Reagan who closed the mental hospitals to save money.

    “This wouldn’t have happened if…” your assumptions are just that. Why not add “if” the fire power was not available in the first place.

    “We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker.

    It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." – Ronald Reagan

    the Human Race has had “bans” and LAWS since Adam’s days…if a person wants to kill another person, all bans and all laws are ignored and violated. Killing can be done with a stone, a baseball bat, or any inanimate object or chemical.
    Guns do not commit murder.
    Cars do not commit murder, but more Americans die by reason of cars by accident or on purpose, and no one organizes to “BAN VEHICLES”….
    -
    Since the days of Stalin, the Communist Party goal includes “disarm the people”…that is the root and source of today’s ‘GUN CONTROL’ agenda publicity! Blaming guns does not originate with sane thinking.

    So, Dr. Canuck. You think that it takes a lack of conscience to decide to protect innocent children? Very telling…

    Can’t we leave this beyond finger pointing? I’m sure Clinton could have acted to do something to restore the system. Then we have Obama in office, including a two year hiatus of total control of all three branches of government. Nothing was improved, quite the contrary, clinics and services are still being cut back on state and local levels.

    The first Federal Gun Law was because of the use of automatic weapons during Prohibition of alcohol. Strange how the NRA and such support the very drug war that is against all of us.

    @Orthodox Catholic

    You are pro slavery of women. And who has threatened you and yours? What I see are types like you killing doctors and burning down clinics.

    Imagine if instead of defunding and closing clinics they got the funding they needed. Yes it is important and to try to ignore it is wrong.
