    I disagree.


    I say we do nothing.


    Knee Jerk reactions to every tragic event that occurs is how the government slowly chips away at our freedoms bit by bit.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Is justified is about equal to limiting/restricting/banning homo butt sex because.

    A. It is not necessary for procreation (the purpose of sex)
    B. Homo Butt Sex is used when committing violent acts of rape.
    C. I don't do it so its okay.


    In both cases, people enjoy both homo butt sex, and shooting semi-auto scary looking rifles.

    But in one case it is wrong to limit the freedoms of the people to do what they enjoy, even if it is only for recreation and not for a specific purpose. (Gay Sex..... Recreation only, no procreation)

    The other case it is okay to limit the freedoms of the people to do what they enjoy, even if it is only for recreation and not for a specific purpose (Scary Looking Gun Shooting..... Recreational Target shooting, no deer).

    In both cases people can do bad things....... and in both cases they serve no necessary purpose in life outside of enjoyment.

    It's just the guns.

    FYI, mass murders happened more frequently 1,000 years ago, when there was no such thing as a gun.
    Do you have a link for that? You know, ordinarly citizens walking into villages a thousand years ago and murdering the inhabitants? What a dumb statement. Let me guess - you learned that on the NRA website.

    it's surely not a very enlightened idea..... but then again, neither are gun bans.

    Re: NRA Newtown response

    I am not a gun control guy. I don't think it would help much at all because it takes guns away from responsible people. Do you think criminals or mentally unstable people will have trouble finding or using one? No. It is unrealistic.

    That being said...what the NRA came out with today was asinine. You think having an armed cop will save lives? Funny because the first thing I thought of was a crazed individual and a cop in a storm of bullets. Before the backup could arrive, many died due to being caught in the middle of that gun fire. Tragedy still happens.

    The trouble is that people can't seem to conceptualize a hard, but true statement. There is very little we can do. No amount of legislation filled with red tape and kick backs will stop it. No amount of guns will stop it.

    We should grieve for loss of life, but understand the danger of giving governments more power.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    LaPierre in part blamed mass shootings on "vicious, violent video games" such as "Bulletstorm," "Grand Theft Auto," Mortal Kombat" and "Splatterhouse." He also reached back in time to place blame on movies like "American Psycho" and "Natural Born Killers" for portraying "life as a joke and murder as a way of life."

    He went on to say that congress should put armed officers in every school in America. Who'd a thunk that a lobby for gun manufacturing comes up with the solution that we need to sell more guns? What a shocker.

    Anywhoo... I find it interesting that he chose to put a stupidity rift on this issue between his lobbying for the gun manufacturing industry and the video game, movie and music industries. He made it appear as "Guns? it's not gu.... LOOK OVER THERE!"
    The whole thing was very bizarre and insensitive. He comes off as too extreme and out of touch with reality, not a good spokesperson.

    I think the NRA has a PR nightmare on its hands.

    Disgusting is using 27 innocent lives to push your political agenda.

    You libs never cease to amaze me at the depths of depravity and souless leaching you'll do to get your political point across.

    Parents are burrying their kids today. Would you care if you couldn't make some political hay with that ?

    Doubt it.
    Ask those parents if they think banning a semi-automatic weapon is a good idea.

    Political hay - what in the hell are you talking about? Bringing up the idea that there ought to be some control over what kinds of weapons are available to any clown with money is 'making political hay'? What is with you people and your obsession with owning military style weapons? Is it some kind of manly thing?

    Actually, I thought your post to be pretty stupid myself. Now how about adding something to the debate ... or is that a "Conservative" thing ?
