    If you bothered to read any of my posts, you will find me firmly in favor of punishing gun owners that do not store their weapons in such a way to keep their minor children away from them.
    I favor jail in those situations.

    Actually the NRA is the one that called for armed guards, police or even guardsmen if needed after Newtown. So you are wrong.
    Even in Newtown the budget that included such protections was shot down by the people that live there.

    That is a bald faced complete lie as I advocated nothing of the kind.

    I have no idea what goes on in your head when you read something but I never said the poster said that. So why would you ask me to identify something I never cited?

    I just want to say what an absolute hero that teacher was. My thoughts are with his family and friends and they should be proud of the man he was.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Its not over the top...its just outright moronic. Its stupid at every level. Kids dont have the right to own handguns and absolutely DO have the right to healthcare. Parents can buy a firearm and teach their kid how to shoot, just as they can buy their children healthcare. Pretty ****ing stupid to try to blame gun owners for the pathetic irresponsible parent that refuses to provide adequate support for their own child.

    It's a shame that a country full of so many intelligent people can't sit down and have a discussion about something as important as gun control without ripping each others faces off.
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).

    Well, golly gee whiz Gomer, other than what you think are really spiffy 'rights' American have with guns - and the fact that Australians are required by law to vote or pay a fine - how about y'all edjimicate me, since I'm just a liberal socialist marxist communist fascist (wait, did I forget anything?) and obviously don't know nuthin' about nuthin'...exactly what 'rights' do we supposedly have that they can "only dream of"?

    It's not a comfort, it's a reality. Free is not safe by the very nature of freedom. I'm not making emotionalized arguments, I'm merely stating facts.
