    Ha! Yep typical California Dumocrat knee-jerk reaction.

    I live in California. We have probably the strictest gun control in the nation. We have a mental health database plus all the criminal background databases state and federal, gun shows have to run background checks and there is a 14 day waiting period for purchases.
    If someone is on the mental health database and then they seek and complete treatment, the state removes them and they can purchase firearms. Now they want to make it a permanent restriction if they are ever on the list, just in case…

    Actually that is a good start. Also tax gun sales to fund the new police state we need to man every school, mall, theater and public place with a guard to protect us from the odd gun lover who decides its time to kill people.

    Elect me and I will confiscate all firearms and have them melted to make metal for high speed rail. There should be no guns at all, not even for the police. As for the military, there should be no military anywhere on the planet.

    Looks like Ms. Benson is a fan of Chris Rock!:
    “Gun control? We need bullet control! I think every bullet should cost 5,000 dollars. Because if a bullet cost five thousand dollars, we wouldn’t have any innocent bystanders”

    No, just the NRA apologists.

    So did Cook County Illinois get the idea from California or was it the other way around?

    By all means, tax bullets. It would give organized criminal elements another market for goods and stimulate financial activity. They’ll also be able to hire more employees and marginally reduce the unemployment figures.

    I don’t like guns. I never have, and I never will. That said, taking all the guns away, or making them cost too much is not the answer. Because even if, somehow, you manage to get all the guns, and keep them away from people, there will be a 10000% rise in people being bludgeoned to death. You can’t legislate away the sick, dark little corners of people’s minds that make them do unthinkable, terrible things.

    And that is the REAL problem.

    Better learn how to say that in whatever language the Muslims speak!

    @Newenglandah

    So, exactly how many NRA members are involved in gun crimes? You sound like you’d know.

    @Ms. Ima

    Just the banks where there are armed guards. Not all banks have them these days.

    Bingo! Hate and violence come from within. That IS the real problem. However, guns make it easier to kill by keeping a distance between the shooter and the victim. We already ban arms. Ever see an individual with a nuclear bomb or ballistic missile? While banning some arms doesn’t always prevent tragedies like Sandy Hook, it discourages them. Military-style semi-automatic assault weapons are unnecessary in a civilized society. Violence begets violence. But you are indeed correct. The underlying problem is the evil that comes from within a person.

    it didnt take Lisa long to get back to the party-line. They all had their moment of obligatory grief so now they can safely get back to rallying against gun control. I wonder who pays her.

    .
    What? She should do this for free?
