    If this is what you understand "conservatives" hate liberals for, then you don't know much about conservatives.

    • Atomic Bombs kill people, like Hiroshima (Bomb Control) Not the people dropping the bomb
    • Gas Chambers kill people, like in Germany (Gas Control) Not the people operating the gas chambers
    ohhh christ!

    cars are not weapons
    planes are not weapons
    Only government have nukes
    only government have gas chambers.

    These are all tools that have been used to kill people by...... PEOPLE.
    Cars kill more people than any of the above. Lets ban cars.

    If you are using the gun correctly(defense of property and small animals from preditors) then a gun is no more a weapon than a stick, just a more effective tool.

    Cars are NOT designed to kill.

    You called me a "bad joke" for comparing a form of discrimination (banning smoking) which is acceptable, to something (banning guns) that isn't even being considered. And when it's even mentioned it becomes what seems like a life or death situation for the NRA. Further "you know this may be hard for me to understand" implies that you are calling me stupid.

    A law enforcement source tells CBS News that a Sig Sauer, a Glock 9 and a Bushmaster rifle were found at the scene. Preliminary information shows that Lanza purchased the weapons legally. CBS News reports that Lanza killed himself.
    So...

    On what grounds should this guy have been denied a gun?
    How would "common sense gun control" have stopped this?

    So you are saying in order to protect against criminals law abiding people should be declawed. *slaps forehead*

    I don't much give a care about politics right now. All I know is I am hurting real bad inside. I want to see my granddaughter and little niece and let them know how much we love them. My heart goes out to the parents.

    As for the murderer, may God have mercy on his soul, because I wouldn't.
