    And your point?

    Should everyone get the same privileges as the President of the United States? The Jet? The Pay? I assume you support raising the minimum wage to $300k+ then?

    Here’s the point: let’s just survey the posters here on GoComics. How many hate Mr. Obama? Raise your hands high.

    How many hate a first grader in, let’s say, Connecticut? Raise your hands high.

    Not a good sample? Go to Facebook. Some of my friends sound as though they would be willing to strangle Mr. Obama with their bare hands if they had the chance. Not so with first graders.

    And it’s not just Mr. Obama; even Ronald Reagan, who approaches sainthood in the minds of several of these posters was shot. And it’s not just Americans we have to worry about….remember the shrubster telling us he had to go after Saddam Hussein because “he threatened to hurt my daddy”.

    He may not be “that important” to you. But he IS the president of the US. That’s important to some of us, like him personally or not.

    Ninety per cent of the public want gun control. The majority seldom gets what they want in this ‘democracy’.

    There are always soft targets. Police are killed every day, so are soldiers. Guns don’t make students safe!

    @Radish

    Mike Lee will filibuster even reasonable attempts to stem gun violence!

    Apparently compassion is beyond the grasp of the looney right wingers.

    All of those stabbed people survived. If the nutcase had a gun there would be 14 dead. It happened in Texas, one of the most heavily armed states and no one stopped it. Where are all you armed right wingers when you are needed? You talk big but you never do anything, just look at how congress is stalled because of the GOP.

    Just what is the big deal about the murder of twenty school children? It’s not as if they were embryos, who must be protected at any cost. Right, Republicans?

    Here’s an example of how Republicans want to “protect” our school children: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/04/missouri-welfare-school-attendance-_n_3017421.html

    More guns more bullets more shootings.

    If you’ll forgive me paraphrasing a couple of my comments from a few months ago….
    .
    I find it hard to believe that anyone genuinely believes that teachers of 6-7 year old children tbeing armed with weapons and trained in the use of deadly force in order to protect those children in their pursuit of an education is either acceptable or remotely possible to implement.
    .
    A school is a place of learning for young children, which is supposed to provide an atmosphere of easy safety, a haven, without distraction from the harsh realities of the outside world, in which they can learn to prepare for it.
    .
    A society which allows free and easy access for anyone to what are essentially weapons of mass destruction at close quarters, is either placing every single man woman and child in the firing line, or by implementing the security measures necessary to counter that, imposing on the most vulnerable and innocent an awareness of the fear pervading your society at a time and in a place where they need it least.

    Sorry Tigger, Wrong
    He used an Bushmaster XM15-E2S. Commonly known as the AR-15 semi automatic, magazine fed rifle can fire 5.56 Nato or .223 civilian hunting round. Similar in design and function to the military M-16 except for a lack of auto fire.
    He fired a 155 rounds in five minutes. 154 at people. The 155 one from his pistol when police entered the building.
    If I gave you a pistol, a door you can bar, and training on how to defend yourself could you stop a mad man like that?
    Because if you are expecting me the POLICE to come save you remember you have 5 minutes. I am getting there as quick as I can.
    Think about it
