    The Right’s compulsion to protect their unregulated access to weapons also insists that the Left is politicizing a “tragedy” because the longer we wait, the weaker the political will to do anything at all. When is the time to do something? Anything? You tell us.

    This is not a “tragedy”. It is an atrocity. Use of the word “tragedy” implies an act of god, or nature. This is the act of a man, within a society that tolerates repeated acts of murder in the name of protecting a so-called right.

    Because in a left wing world , people are not responsible for their actions. Something or someone else is always to blame!

    “Banning guns doesn’t work.”

    Not sure that’s true, but certainly it can’t work if the ban is not uniform. It’s pretty easy to get alcohol into a dry county, for example. But, I’ll accept this premise for the sake of “getting along”.

    “Figure something else out.”

    You could do the same. Whether you call it a tragedy, or something with lots of words, is it just a price we have to pay for a free society? Or is it a problem that might be solvable if we would only stop fighting about it and assuming what the “other side” thinks (often incorrectly)?

    And your reasons for believing this canard?

    Facts? Statistics? We don’t need those were WE are going to! Lets all get down on our knuckles and kill each other, just like God has intended, right? Jeez, it gets worse every day in the U.S. of A.

    And about 175,000 have died in auto accidents in that time. Essentially, the few instances of mass shootings are grossly over-rated and an extreme rarity.
    Also, during the last 5 years all of these mass shootings have been done by persons who are mentally disturbed. I’m not hearing calls for increased institutionalization of the mentally ill and potentially dangerous.

    Stop blaming the gun start blaming the person wielding it.

    I think we need to segregate this society as soon as possible… we need to send all the anti-gun people somewhere where they can indulge their naive “the world is too dangerous for traditional american freedoms” . I think they will feel safer elsewhere.

    So…just thinking outside the box here…LIBS are responsible for more gun deaths than GEORGE W. BUSH! More people have died in Chicago alone where the Libs have complete control than in any other city in the U.S. Why and wherefore, Libs? Can you explain why your strict gun regulation leads to MORE not LESS gun deaths?

    He used a shotgun to shoot a TRAINED ARMED GUARD, and take his weapon, to do further damage. Auth is more likely commenting on the fact that CONGRESS has ignored Obama’s call to write, and pass, legislation to reduce the toll, which he’d sign, and it would NOT mean “confiscation” of any of the paranoids weapons. Hmm, the shooter was paranoid too, think about it.

    No…he’s likely bemoaning the fact that the world is often a cold, lonely place and the liberal thinks there should be a government (tax-payer-funded) program to “fix” that.

    Too bad no AR 15 was involved this time. The shooter had a pistol and a shotgun.
