    Freedom for citizens to challenge their elected representatives to create sane gun regulations.

    Freedom is the ability to go anywhere in the country and not expect that our kids will die in their elementary school, in a movie theatre, or playing in their neighborhood. Guns kill; it’s that simple.

    You’ll have to excuse Ima. He’s confused “freedom of speech” with “freedom to force others to follow my beliefs”.

    As long as Congress refuses to fund any program for the treatment of the mentally ill, these things are possible. If guns were removed, a mentally ill person could use knives, as happed in China a few days before the Newton tragedy.

    In the words of Paul Simon, “All lies and jest; still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.”

    Go to any shooting range. I challenge you to find any place that’s safer and usually there are LOTS of guns at any shooting range.

    So Harley’s arguement seems to be that a ban on assult rifles would not have stopped an 18-year old from taking his mother’s legally-puchased assult rifle.

    Please explain.

    No, I am saying that he would have killed far fewer kids if he didn’t have an assult rifle. Huge clips allow more killing more quickly. He shot one of the 6-year olds 11 times, and fired far more than 26 bullets to kill 26 people. He only stopped and shot himself when he realized that the police had arrived. If he had to reload more often, more kids would have escaped. The guy that shot Gabby Gifford had a 30-bullet clip and was stopped when he had to reload.

    Follow the money, from the arms dealers to NRA, from the NRA lobby to the Congressmen.

    You may have missed this part: “within the civilian category 11 of the 17 shootings were stopped by unarmed civilians.” But I was curious to see what else could be gleaned from this info, so I used the same data, but analyzed it to see what the average death toll is by weapon type is.

    Weapon / Average Deaths Per Incident
    Automatic Rifle / 9.5
    Automatic Pistol / 9.8
    Rifle or Shotgun / 3
    Revolver/Non Auto Handgun / 1.8

    Anecdotally, there were several cases where armed civilians either failed to subdue the shooter or shot bystanders. In most of the cases where civilians armed or unarmed were successful in subduing the shooter, the shooter was not armed with an automatic weapon, or the gun jammed. I think it’s obvious that the lack of automatic weapons gives a greater opportunity for civilians to intervene or flee.

    People kill, they use whatever means is at hand.

    You are keeping up with the news of the dems wanting to get rid of the first amendment, aren’t you?
