    “It is too soon.”
    This ‘toon could well relate to many of the other tragedies that we’ve endured. Too soon, no in terms of gun control and mental health availability it’s inexcusably late.

    This is a MENTAL HEALTH issue NOT a gun control issue.

    You’re half right. It’s both.

    Anyone who thinks that more guns are the solution to gun violence is insane and shouldn’t have guns.

    So as usual, we will pass another law and that will fix everything? No, it’s just the American political tradition of a quick fix that will appease the uproar from the people and do nothing to address the underlying problem…

    Stupid ’toon. Fewer guns = more carnage. You have to live in a fantasy world to believe that. If you want to see how a society functions when everyone is heavily armed, look at Iraq.

    Your egotism and arrogance totally negates any message you might be trying to impart. In effect screaming at people calling them evil, “murder ers” and the myriad of other insults you heap on people just makes you another judgmental voice with no credibility in the argument. You talk about approving of a cartoonists work as if they have to pass your criteria for credibility. What you fail to realize is people that actually matter in such issues discount you as just another extreme in the argument. I’m sure this falls on deaf ears since you seem so self absorbed you are impervious to any opinion other than your own…

    Respectfully and because of the sensitive nature of recent events allow me draw you a picture: if you were going to design a video game where the object was to slaughter as many as possible w/ no fear of resistance, you’d name it “GUN FREE ZONE.”

    I looked through this list of 10 most popular video games and low and behold, one wasn’t pure blood and guts violence. Seriously, look these over.

    Dr. C. Since you are going to put this on a logic level (and statistical) lets look at this. 100 million people own guns. A very, very minute percentage of those people abuse firearms and in particular the Newtown kind of genocide. That doesn’t excuse the shooter or denigrate the heinous nature of his crime. He also belongs to a minute percentage of the mentally ill that are violent to others. All this discussion of cause and effect being numerically bandied about here goes both ways.
    Obviously we need better gun control. I have posted ad nauseam many controls and procedures that cover background checks at gun shows, storage and training issues amongst others. Unfortunately I see a sales ban on these guns will probably be likely. I’m a libertarian and I abhor government control, it is the absolutely last resort IMHO.
    One website (actually anti-gun) states there are over 4 million assault rifles in the U.S. 310 million guns in total. What degree of gun control do we go to for assault weapons? Confiscation? Banning the sale? Special licensing? California did that years ago. I wish I could believe any of these actions would prevent this kind of horrible crime from happening again. This kid was refused purchase of a gun, so he stole his mother’s, obviously not well secured. I fear this will be a knee jerk reaction to an incredibly complex problem…

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but while the rate of gun ownership in the US has risen quite a bit since 1990, the rate of violent crime has declined significantly. I know that conflicts with your irrational belief that more guns = more crime, but facts are stubborn things.

    If you want to see a good example of how a society functions when everyone is heavily armed, look at Switzerland. Almost everyone owns a gun, gun laws are very relaxed, and – surprise! violent crime rates are very low. Guns do not cause crime – people do.

    Did you ever think that the only people that will obey gun laws are those that aren’t criminals? Ban guns and the only people with them will be the criminals. Gun toting crooks will violate the easiest target possible as most of them are cowards. After all you see them attacking folks on the street, in schools, or places of worship. If these cowards really wanted a fight they would try this stunt at a police station or a military base where people have the means to fight back with the same force. Assumably you were born with some grey matter called a brain…please use it for it’s intended purpose (independent thought) and quit letting mainstream public opinion tell you what to think.
