    No one says anything good about the san antonio shooter two days after the ct shooting. Maybe because he was shot before he could do any damage.

    Yea, and no one says anything about the 300 million americans who never shoot ANYONE because they know about all them guns out there.

    Another loser who thinks it’s better for innocent people to be victims. Gun free zones are the most dangerous places in Amerika.Funny how the 20 schoolchildern killed by a knife weilding maniac in China the same week wasn’t big news.

    uhm, 20 school children WOUNDED in China. Maybe that would help you to see the difference? Folks like you would prefer that they were dead. After all it’s folks like you that made sure Adam Lanza had access to assault weapons.

    Oh goody! Another “conversation” about how guns will/won’t save us, started off by someone who has a pronounced fetish to be known as a pistol.

    No doubt, we’ll learn a lot here.

    The flyers of those planes lack imagination. While Newtown, Aurora, and Tucson are tragedies, the elimination of guns is no guarantee of a safer and more secure society. We can just as easily imagine bequeathing a totalitarian police state to our children with the disarming of the populace. Perhaps not immediately, but it would come.

    The airplanes need a swastika. Pay some homage to a modern gun control success.

    I dislike the cartoon for so many reasons.
    First – King Kong was a victim. Kidnapped from his island (where, of course, he was a curse to the islanders) and transported to the city as a money making resource.
    Second – the airplanes are doing just what LaPierre says need be done to fight "bad guys’. Each of those planes would normally be armed with twin machine guns. They’re using guns to fight against guns. Tho, I see no art depicting bullets being fired. Will the planes just ram Kong?
    Third – Kong is using a gun to what? Protect the children in his other hand? If the cartoon is to be accurate and Kong is protecting what he loves, there should be politicians in his hand, not children.
    The NRA is not Kong. Gwangi maybe, but not Kong.
    Nahh…the NRA is the shark from Jaws. Mindless, hungry, and too dangerous to be allowed to continue in its current form.
    Send in Dreyfus and Scheider.

    Just a note: The agency I worked for possessed a weapon (22 caliber) which used a 500 round magazine. It was meant to be used in case of a hostage situation. The weapon is no longer in use because it was deemed “inhumane”. A short burst would make a person’s head disappear. I thought it was a nice deterrent to hostage taking.

    Those guns would melt anything in their path.
    .
    But I post for another topic. I did silly things in my youth and am a felon, I cannot own firearms.
    The law is fairly effective, I do not carry or even keep a gun in the house, jail is not worth it.
    .
    I NEEDED a gun a few years back, I went to town, paid $100 for a S&W revolver.
    It was pointed at a person’s torso while words were exchanged, later it was recycled back into the system. Cannot afford to have a gun in my immediate possession.
    .
    Not good, not bad, this just is.

    Oh no, it wasn’t the airplanes. It was duty that killed the beast.

    One of the guys who used to help me with heavy jobs (like digging up a palm tree) was a felon for selling drugs. He was caught with a gun and spent 10 years in prison.
    He had only been out a short while when he was caught with a gun again and ia spending 20 years in prison. (FL has a 10-20- life policy)

    An inanimate object is not evil, only the intentions and the actions of people make it so. I agree with a poster that this issue should not fade but I had hoped that logic would have entered the debate. People are perfectly willing to vilify the NRA yet it was NOT the NRA that made “gun-free zones” popular. Further, no one is wiling to discuss Connecticut’s already strict guns laws and how totally ineffective they were at keeping a man with obvious mental issues from stealing them and breaking into a school. Yes, Lanza’s mother owned the guns, and she had every right to do so, but do you honestly think that if she didn’t have guns, he would not have found another gun or another instrument to commit his crime? And, speaking of “gun free zones”, why is it none of the anti-NRA zealots question why these incidents seem to happen more at so called gun-free zones? The shooter in Aurora, CO bypassed several theaters closer to his home that did not proudly display they was a “gun-free zones”.

    How many commenting here have lost a family member to a gun? How many of you have cared for a shooting victim? How many have seen someone shot. How many of you has held the hand of a mother while you watched their 7 year old gasp out their last breath from an accidental shooting?
