    The criminals that ignore today’s gun laws are the same criminals that will ignore the new gun laws after the Conn. massacre. It won’t change a thing. While the politictians are thumping their chests feeling good that they “accomplished” something, a few more illegal deaths from unregistered guns will happen.

    Enforcement is a key component of gun laws. the NRA fights against enforcement of gun laws as hard as they do legislation.

    Honest gun owners do NOT need military style weapons whose only purpose is to kill human beings. They do not need automatic weapons that can fire as fast as you repeatedly pull the trigger, nor do they need 30 round magazines.

    Honest hunters and target shooters register their guns, and then keep them locked up. They can even get their guns back as they are registered in case someone does manage to steal them.

    So, having sensible guns laws (just as having sensible traffic laws) Does NOT hurt the honest gun owner (or driver for that matter)!!!

    OK, seriously now, what’s the problem with removing assault rifles (and nasty ammunition) from circulation?
    I’m a foreigner, and I assure you that the world is looking at the USA right now and just shaking our heads, as per this cartoon.
    Your precious gun freedoms give freedom to crazies to wipe out schoolrooms full of babies.
    An extremely conservative Australian government removed most from circulation and suddenly massacres stopped.
    The reaction to the IRA chief’s speech was like being gobsmacked. No point in replying to fools.
    Sorry for sounding insulting on Christmas Eve, but seriously Friends, wake up to sanity!

    Why keep talking about criminals when it hasn’t been previous offenders who comitted these things, but “law abiding citizens”.

    A small capacity pistol or rifle will not suffice against a gang or a riot, or the situation for which the Second Amendment was created.

    I think you’re right. They’re more into bombs.

    In a lot of cases, though, there were warning signs that these “law-abiding citizens” weren’t stable but people refused to act.

    For example, Maj. Nadal Hasan’s co-workers at Walter Reed all recognized the fact that he was becoming militant, but feared that if they attempted to report him then their commanding officer would flag them all as “racist” (which would have ended their careers) and bury the matter instead of taking actual action; Clintonian political correctness is that strong in the higher ranks of the military.

    I always assumed others look like at us like idiots. I have no reason to blame you.

    my daddy told me a bolt action rifle or a double barreled shotgun is all you need…by the time you get two shots off, the targetis either out of range, or you need to be a better shot.

    “Death Wish” and “The Warriors” were movies. Gangs are more about money than roaming around attacking people. Firing into a riot is murder and commiting your own suicide. The best thing to do is get out of the way and collect the insurance money. The situation the second amendment was written for was being called up by the government to defend against a foreign invading force. In that case, the guns were regulated or kept in the local armory. The situation is obsolete becaue we have both a standing national army and a state militia (the National Guard). If you want a bigger gun, you are more than welcome to join one of them, and pay for college as well.

    I would much prefer to have a child with a scar than one who is dead. The two incidents show that those in China are better off because their children all survived, something all the parents of the Sandy Hook children would prefer.
