    A very immature(and wrong) view of the gun control bill supported by Barry and friends.

    It was a horrible bill that would only make it harder for honest citizens to buy a constitutionally protected product. Criminals don’t do background checks and never will.

    Yeah! And why do we have bomb control, anyway? You know, bombs don’t kill people, people kill people.
    And the Boston bombings prove that laws against having bombs don’t work and only the criminals have bombs — the bombs have all been confiscated from the law abiding citizens.

    More children are killed in automobile accidents than all gun related deaths. So why aren’t they trying to pass “Feel Good” legislation to protect children from autos? Gun control is a waste of time. 55 years ago when I was in 4th grade, guns where available more so than today, and where was the mass murders then? The reasons that have created an environment where Sandy Hook type mass murders has become the norm is far beyond the control of a bunch of idiots in Washington. Despite, or because of, everything they do, things will get worse. Much worse.

    And the Repubs won’t be happy until everyone is armed and dangerous. It’s their be all and end all. Population control without birth control. Kill ’em all and let God sort ’em out!

    55 years ago, Willard, despite the many problems of that time, people were generally of the opinion that people were good, our gov’t was flawed but well intentioned, and our schools and jobs would give us a good life and secure retirement.
    Now we don’t trust our gov’t, our corporations care more about money than employees, people are greedy and selfish, our schools inadequate, and your job is probably going to find a way to get rid of you before you can collect a pension, or they’ll go bankrupt so they don’t have to pay your pension.
    Our entertainment has gone from truly good and recognizably honorable heroes to the “anti-hero” who is only marginally better than the truly evil humans they combat, and sometimes, the bad guys don’t even lose.
    If you have too many gerbils in you habi-trail, they start eating their young, even if there is plenty of food and water.
    The world we had 55 years ago was racist, homophobic, sexist, and yes… greedy. We still confront those demons, but we do so in a world that is less polite, less civil, less educated, and more willing to do evil in the name of good.
    The cure is respect… the cure, is love. Love of neighbors, of nation, of self. People who feel loved and secure don’t perform mass murders.
    The cartoon presents a view that politicians and a minority of gun proponents care about money more than human life. The devil is in the details on how to do these things, especially when so many of us can’t control the devils within ourselves.
    I understand your frustration, Mr. Baker. I wish we were trusting and cooperative enough to experiment with some possible solutions.

    This common-sense bill was co-sponsored by one of the most-conservative members of the Senate, PA senator Pat Toomey, who is an NRA member and gun owner himself.

    It’s been proven that conservatives cannot be swayed by facts, which are what liberals find desirable.
    Conservatives won’t even honor the facts presented by the strict rules of science – they dispute proven facts.

    Yeah, why have any laws at all, since criminals will just break them, anyways…

    “More children are killed in automobile accidents then all gun related deaths.”
    The number would be higher if not for legally required airbags, car seats, seat belts, speed limits, school zones, etc.

    A typical fact free rant from ConserveGov. There were three disasters last week. More Americans will die from the failure of gun reform than died in Boston and West Texas combined.

    If the bill is common sense then it is poorly written common sense. I’ve read most of this bill and scanned the rest, and I’ve found at least two sections that would encourage money laundering and straw buying by unscrupulous dealers and/or organized crime.

    so, because gun control doesn’t “work” and will not completely eradicate crime, then, we should not have any drug laws? or, locks on doors? or, handcuffs? or, prisons? australia instituted gun controls and it seems to work over there with a reduction of homicides, suicides, and no mass shootings. and, didn’t the nra supported universal background checks for everyone? and, what about the part of swords into plowshares and thou shalt not kill?

    “The Bill would only have required Gun Show sales live by the same rules that Gun Stores now live by.”

    The bill does covers much more than what I’ve quoted from you above. The entire bill can be read by going to the Federal Register. It’s Senate bill S.649.

    “australia instituted gun controls and it seems to work over there with a reduction of homicides,….”

    It only caused a reduction in gun homicides but not in the reduction of the homicide rate. From 1996, the year of the draconian change in Australian gun laws, until 2010 the homicide rate in Australia ranged between 1.6 and 1.8 per hundred thousand. This is the same rate range as pre-1996. In 2010 and 2011 there was a drop of 27% in the rate. It is not yet known whether this is an anomaly or a trend.
