    Yes, the media prosecuted Zimmerman without a trial and doctored the evidence for their viewing audience. It made me sick. I hardly stand to watch those entertainment news channels anymore.

    We don't need gun control...

    What we need to do is make an example out of these psychopaths who ILLEGALLY use guns to kill people.

    This guy only killed his mom and took her guns and illegally used them. His mother was a lawful gun owner, she just happened to have some sort of nutbar for a son.

    Sane people shouldn't have their guns taken from them because there are a few nuts in this world, not to mention the Second Amendment.

    As far as the UK is concerned - they may not be shooting one another (although it does happen), however they do a good job at stabbing one another..

    Hell, look at what happens in China - they don't have guns yet the crazies go around on epic "stabbing attacks" most notably on school children.

    The Constitution does not limit our right to keep and bear arms to " those arms necessary for hunting."
    If that is what they wanted it to say, it would have been written that way.
    Our right to bear arms is based on the 3 boxes of government.
    Three Boxes of Liberty
    And I do know people who hunt with these weapons.

    False. Semi-auto handguns are just as efficient at the close ranges used. Shoot just as quickly. Magazines change just as quickly.

    It ain't the guns.

    We are reaping the fruits of liberal society. The decay of the family. The lack of accountability.

    So its folks let out of Instutions who are committing these crimes ....... oh wait !

    Can you show us any of these folks who would have been institutionalized in the days of such as .... President Carter ?

    Actually, its the decay of the family. We've had guns since our founding. Fast-loading ones for over a century. But the mass-killings by bullets are pretty much in the last twenty years.

    Has conservatism been the driver behind the decay of the family ?

    Further, and frankly, and unfortunately, these killers exist in the virtual world of the internet. In peer groups they could not likely find, much less sustain, if not for the modern communication age.

    It ain't the guns. And you have made no argument that its conservatism, while all arrows point to liberal trash.

    His name was Adam Lanza

    Adam Lanza killed those innocent and defenseless children. Not pictures you googled on the Internet.

    I'm a moral and responsible person and I own some weapons that could do some serious damage. I own these weapons so I can protect my rights to have these weapons - to protect myself from tyranny, to protect civil liberties in general.

    If it matters, I hardly ever carry my 38 when I go out in public.

    I suppose it's better to have a gun and not need one than need a gun and not have one.

    My next acquisition will be a Thompson M1A1.

    It is one based on reason and common sense. What legitimate purpose do assault weapons have? Name one legitimate reason why we need these types of weapons in our society?
    <font size=5><b>Its been several weeks since the Vegas shooting.  Its it still "Too Early" or can we start having the conversation about finally doing something about these mass shootings???​</b></font>

    So ignorance and bias then. You believe there could be no purpose and that one who has such weapons surely cannot be moral. But you have no measurement to back this claim. I've seen similar arguments.
