    Grover Norquist must be SO proud.

    ^ Yes, of course. Any gun control inevitably leads to confiscation.
    -
    Repeat your NRA mantra over and over.
    -
    And don’t tax the ‘job creators’.

    I don’t care what your politics are, this is a really lame comic strip.

    As I like to say, the difference between a “NRA responsible gun owner” and a murderer, is a bad fight with the wife or next door neighbour

    Must be nice to live in ignorant bliss and think the government, or police, are going to protect you from the bad guys.

    Honestly, how can anyone think taking guns away from honest citizens is going to stop the crime? How stupid can one be?

    Come on Dude. When you let your emotions rule you, you lose. It’s the point ‘ol Mikeyj wants to make by saying that all gun owners are just one step away from letting anger overtake common sense and they go get the .357 and blast that nag just to shut her up. To which DrC must agree of course.

    But it’s the same old tired argument not proven by any facts or study but rather carried along by emotion and inflammatory rhetoric. And you play right into their game when you lose it.

    Mama always said when “they” start yelling just talk more quietly and if reason won’t prevail, walk away. Force, while sometimes necessary, is the very last resort.

    So DrC and Mickyj are wrong but they will never ever see why.

    @Mikeyj

    Well, Mickeyj, where you are DrC are wrong is the exclusion of every other human being on the planet that are not "NRA responsible gun owner " designated. You have the same capacity to “murder” your neighbor of spouse with or without a “gun”. And while “guns” historically account for over 50% of murders, people use a variety of objects for that purpose and ‘when angered" weapons of “opportunity” abound in the home. Shoot, a number 2 pencil is a fine weapon, sharpened or not.

    Here’s an interesting article.

    Just some thoughts.

    @Bruce4671

    Here are the stats from the link you posted on the weapons used in homicides:
    Explosives: 10
    Drowning: 10
    Narcotics: 33
    Fire: 80 t0 100
    Strangulation: 88
    Asphyxiation: 89
    Blunt Objects: 600
    Personal body weapons: 861
    Knives and cutting instruments: 1897
    Fire Arms: nearly 10,000
    So these are the numbers you appeal to in arguing that guns aren’t the problem? Look at numbers 1 and 2:
    1,897 killed with knives
    10,000 killed with guns.
    Does that not suggest something to you? As I have often said, I don’t believe in the confiscation of guns or the banning of all kinds of guns. I think hunting and target practice are fine. I have yet to be convinced that having a gun at home for self-protection actually works out, but if you give me the stats I’ll think about it. But the stats you yourself give tell me that guns are a big part of the problem.

    That isn’t the same thing and you know it. Weak argument.

    We are talking about murder and yes guns in the hands of criminals is part of the problem. More laws for them to ignore won’t help. IF you are intent on taking out the old lady (or old man) then you will find a way. Take away all the guns and you still have murder by firearm in the stats.

    @lonecat

    It isn’t the tool but the carpenter. and yes, Sen. Feinstein has stated in the past that the ultimate goal is to totally disarm America so there is reason for concern.

    Guns are a problem when the wrong people get them, yes. The basis of the constitution says that that is something that must be delt with without restricting the rights of the rest of the community.

    Sorry prohibition only increases the number of and the wealth of criminals.

    Well, I’m having trouble finding that particular study. However, I found a few articles that use him as their expert. In this one (http://www.lohud.com/usatoday/article/1773479 ) he says:

    " Investing in mental health care and reducing its stigma could help prevent future tragedies, he says.

    “Mental health has shrunk down to the level of short-term crisis management,” Cornell says. “If we are going to focus on prevention, we can’t think about the gunman in the parking lot and what to do with him. We have to get involved a lot earlier.”

    He is indirectly referenced here:

    http://www.aboundinglove.org/outreach/or-021.php

    And since it is a religious article you may want to scroll down to the section on “what the experts say” and ignore the god stuff.

    Now don’t get me wrong here Doc, I don’t make any claim of being super intelligent or even highly educated. But does it strike you at all that the expert opinion addresses everything BUT new laws to further restrict guns?

    But the banning of “assault weapons” will have no effect on my hobby and hunting if I need. I may need my pistols on my new job since I have to return to work now that Obama’s killing my retirement investments. Maybe I can land one of those armed guard jobs…hahahahahahahahahahahahahah.
