    It should be noted it was a Republican MINORITY, using filibuster rules multiple times, NOT the MAJORITY in Congress who wanted to take action!

    Republicans with the help of 4 Democrats did the deed.

    So what will stop the next shooting? Does anyone have anything to suggest? I mean anything that makes sense — I’m not interested in “lock up all the people who show any sign whatsoever of any mental disturbance” — since there is almost no way to predict who is going to engage in one of these shootings, preventative detention is no answer.

    Sadly lonecat you are probably right. no amount of gun contols at this point in our history will make a dime’s worth of difference. But at least a universal national background check may have slowed down the flow of guns from a deluge to just a raging torrent. it does not help when law enforcement officers say they will not enforce any gun law enacted by this congress and approved by this president. that is a very sad signal to give to criminals.

    @Gary Williams

    There was a national gun registry here in Canada — it was pretty controversial, and in my opinion it was implemented very badly. But one interesting point was that the police by and large were in favor of it.

    Hmm, Casey here looks a little odd, think we should lock him up?

    He absolutely sounds deranged. If not ‘locked up’ he certainly should receive the ‘proper medications’.

    he’s positively certifiable. straightjacket, shock treatment and thorazine to start. After all, mentally insane don’t have the same constitutional rights as the rest of us. According to the republicans, they’re not even deserving of health care.

    Deep background checks, Federal licensing, mandatory training and if you don’t pass you don’t get the gun, psychiatric testing too.

    And don’t forget to thank your local liberals, who think it is wrong to lock up the mentally insane, as it infringes on their rights to walk about without proper medications,…

    Now where do you get off saying that shinola? It was that ardent Republican Reagan who ended Federal funding and tossed thousands out of clinics into the street. Blame you saint.

    That Cons (both parties) want to sell guns and ammunition and they don’t care who gets them.

    Thank you, useless members of congress. Refuse a law that the majority of Americans want.

    “There are a simple solutions to the problem of gun violence. Get rid of the liberal touchy-feely . . . enforce the laws . . . arrest the criminals . . . Put them away for 10 years min to life . . . gun control isn’t about guns…”

    The incarceration rate in the United States is the highest in the world. While Americans represent about 5 percent of the world’s population, nearly one-quarter of all inmates in the entire world have been incarcerated in the United States in recent years.

    The United States has the highest gun ownership rate in the world. Unambiguously. It is nearly double or triple that of any of the next highest gun-owning countries.

    I understand that defending ever-expanding profit margins of gun manufacturers is an important part of your definition of ‘freedom’, but there simply isn’t much more we can do in this direction.

    This is a pretty radical step, but maybe we should replace the Senate with a representative body of legislators?
