    Ooof. Harsh.

    Needed to be said, though.

    The NRA is a terrorist organization. Repeal the 2nd Amendment.

    “We go through this legislation “war” after every tragedy and nothing changes"
    Our opinions are so close on this one we could have had the same mother.
    Let us change things and quit going through this time after time.
    Write your congressman with that message.

    There IS room between “doing nothing” and “taking away everyone’s guns”. Why do people have such a blind spot on the subject?

    minos: Read Madison’s Notes to see what the thinking was just prior to adding the Bill of Rights. It wasn’t to let thugs and loonies go around killing people. It was to “ensure domestic tranquility” and “provide for the common defense” without the use of the systems of tyranny in use in Europe at the time: conscription, mercenaries, and a large standing army.
    Just implement the first part of the amendment – the part the Nazi Revolutionary Army wants you to forget – the main part of the Constitution defines the “well-regulated” part (Article II, Section 2). It was used by Eisenhower during the Faubus Insurrection.

    We already have adequate gun control. It’s not being enforced.

    Before we start screaming for /new/ laws, shouldn’t we enforce the ones we have? Why would we think new laws would be better enforced?

    Beware the effect of unintended consequences.

    “Why do people have such a blind spot on the subject?”

    Because you are a rational person who is guided by logic and reason, I will go through the litany of information that skews the argument to such an “all or nothing” level.

    The talking points politically are nobody wants to ban guns, just control the A/R, high cap mags etc. Unfortunately that is only part of the dialog that is published. Politicians regularly from the President on down are quoted at various times espousing prohibition solutions and talking about gun control as “this is just a first step in the process.” In California (my domicile) the politicians are not even subtle, they regularly talk about banning guns, all of them. Diane Fienstien, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, all California democrats are quite outspoken on the subject when they aren’t facing a national camera. The discussions here on the boards of GC and other sites regularly push arguments for confiscation or prohibition that goes way beyond the current discussion. When you read or listen to the “official” gun control organizations they speak regularly of total confiscation/prohibition as a solution.

    last night I listened to the California Senate Committee on Health and Safety considering 12 bills on gun control. Some are just being recycled and have already been vetoed by our governor (Brown) last year. They tweak the language and hope that they can push it through this year. Some of the controls they want to institute are totally unrealistic and would be cost prohibitive to implement. One on ammunition licenses and reporting ammunition purchases was already tried and rejected by the ATF in the late 80’s.

    Bor’s cartoon reflects this attitude very well. We have to do something! So we will pass laws that are ineffective at addressing the real problems of violence in our culture. I hope i shed some light on your question.

    Ten times the number killed in Boston, EVERY DAY in America with gun violence. What IS terrorism, and who sponsors it?

    Typical “bovine scatology”.

    To those who say we have ‘adequete’ gun control already – you are wrong! Maybe we have enough laws, but if they aren’t enforced then by defination the efforts of gun control are inadequete. It is time to a) develop comprehensive regulations and b) enforce them all and all the time.

    Because that is what they would do when they have an issue they don’t like and want to control it, nay eliminate it. Such as abortion and equal marriage rights.

    There were enough sniveling little cowards in both parties. I didn’t think my contempt for Congress could get much worse.

    Tigger: The second amendment is one sentence. The opening – the one accessories to mass and serial murder always ignore – defines its purpose. It also limits the scope of what constitutes infringement. The second amendment was temporarily abolished in 1862 and 1917, and permanently destroyed in 1940 with conscription. It was totally stomped out in 2002 when a huge standing army was supplemented by an equally huge number of unregulated mercenaries. I have actually read Madison’s Notes (had to get it on interlibrary loan because no one publishes it nowadays). I suggest you try to get a copy to read and stop distorting the words of those who wrote it.

    Democrats were included in the no vote and Republicans in the yes vote, for those of you in denial.

    Senator, is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy that the NRA has arrived with your check?
