    Mike: we got restrictions on drinking, driving, jaywalking, smoking in public places, going to work with the flu, on and on. That’s the price of living together. I think the big boys in yer audience can handle life without firing 50 rounds a minute in school yards, movie theaters and the local shopping mall.

    Only EIGHTEEN mass shootings with an assault rifle?!
    .
    What were we thinking?! That’s NOTHING!

    IMHO we should tax the crap out of guns, require background checks for ALL guns sold at gun shows, restore funding for mental health treatment and increase the number of school nurses educated in psychiatric assessment

    It’s suddenly clear to me! Remove all hands and feet! There will be no more driving (drunk or otherwise), no more handling guns, hammers, knives, screwdrivers, etc., and no more punchings or beetings! How obvious and simple the solution is! Thank you, Ramirez, for showing us the light!

    Sorry but changing our society would be more effective in the long term by giving children back something called fathers. Harder but much more effective.

    I’m surprised people don’t get this. If people don’t have guns, arguments and psychotic states of mind don’t become lethal, and even if they do (like with knives and fists) less people die. If you have good guys with guns shooting bad guys with guns, other good guys (and kids) die in the crossfire. Guns are bad, period.

    It’s time to put the blame on the INDIVIDUAL and not the objects.

    You have deaths by guns totaling less than 7,000. Where are the other 5,000? Please try to keep your facts straight. More NRA propaganda.

    Ramirez is using FACTUAL NUMBERS to inform clueless Americans who view cartoons….to prove that a crusade against gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment is not in need of federal infringement!
    -
    Fact, also, is that Criminals with murder in mind do not care about Laws and they don’t care about the Right to Life and Liberty for all other Law-abiding citizens. Criminals only care about Laws after they are arrested and charged with crime.
    -
    Obama/Biden have opened a crusade against law-abiding gun owners…..hidden in the 23 Executive Orders is a new inroad into forcing physicians to spy on law-abiding patients and their households, without reason and violating privacy rights of Americans. No doubt Obama’s regime plans to prosecute Doctors if they havn’t reported patients to the Feds, with info of what guns they own, where they keep them, names and addresses for a Federal List for future confiscation.
    -
    Egads! Do you Obama voters really want an American repeat of Stalin…Mao…Fidel….with using children as a cover to subvert citizens’ rights?

    So, why don’t we put the same restrictions and stigmas on guns that we put on drunk driving in the 70s? You know, when the drunk driving rate was 3 times what it is today. Just because something isn’t 100% effective doesn’t mean it’s 100% ineffective. Also, you have the right to own guns; it doesn’t mean they can’t be a pain in the ass to acquire.

    @wmconelly

    So, we also already have laws about guns in schools, theaters and shopping malls. The laws did not prevent the incidents, neither do all the other rules and regs You mention prevent people from doing them and other innocent people being hurt by them. Do you see the trend here?

    Laws do not stop those that will disregard them.

    The NRA is the leader in advocacy of gun safety, responsible ownership and training concerning those things.

    I want to know why the ACLU isn’t assaulted by the press for sticking up for the rights of the mentally disturbed to the exclusion of everyone else. Why isn’t the ABA assaulted for no-fault divorce creating the completely dysfunctional families from which these poor mentally disturbed shooters are created? Why isn’t the Screen Actors Guild assaulted for helping create the vulgar culture into which we have descended? Why always and only the ARA? If the citizens of this country felt safe, they wouldn’t be buying guns.

    The point of the cartoon being. . . what? Do nothing?

    We do regulate cars and liquor.
    I like the cartoon as it offers perspective. Two of our recent shootings used guns that would not be part of the ban. The very best part of what Mr. Obama has put forward is the 100% background check, and stiffer penalties for illegal guns and straw buyers.
    People are still going to be shot. People still die in DUI related accidents. If these laws are enactied, fewer people will die over the next few years from gun deaths, just as fewer people die from DUI accidents now.
    There are no perfect solutions until people can live with respect and have hope. Even then, there’s going to be bad days, but it can be better, if we are.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    “that they have a “right” to react violently when they’re pissed-off or bat-$h1t crazy!!!”


    Nobody is saying any such thing. Lighten up man, go for a walk, get away from your computer or you are going to end up “bat shit crazy.”
