    In this case that wouldn't have made a difference. The point was that if all these laws are so freaking necessary then they'd also work....but that doesn't seem to be happening in NYC any more than it does in Chicago or anywhere else.

    It was sarcasm. Of course it wouldn't have made a difference. Dead is dead.

    Perhaps a additional links would help make that point a bit better. But, no that is not an epidemic - vehicles still kill far more kids than guns.

    Multiple shots fired and no report that the parents sustained any injury or that the child received any other injury during the shooting. Doesn't sound to me like the child/parents were the intended target. What was going on in that area at the time? The article is extremely vague on details.

    You're wasting your breath, Luther. The fact of more stringent gun laws are lost on some people. They can't make the connection between more stringent gun laws doesn't magically make violence or illegal gun ownership go away.

    They won't be happy until there are no guns. Funny thing about that...will that even work?

    Nope. But don't tell them that. It's not what they want to hear.

    Next time someone gets their heads bashed in with a rock, someone gets choked to death by a scarf or nylon rope, or someone gets stabbed multiple times and dies...I want to see those same people rallying against abolishing these things as well.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    It worked fine in Australia. Actually more than fine.

    Did gun control work in Australia?

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    The gun didnt kill this toddler. a bullet was the final instrument of the death and the gun the intermediary, but unless you are the worst kind of fool you cant POSSIBLY believe that the gun woke up that morning and said "**** it...Ima go out and dust me a baby!" No...the person RESPONSIBLE for the childs death was the scumbag that decided pulling the trigger indiscriminately would be a good thing. Guns DO NOT kill people. PEOPLE kill people, and they do so with all MANNER of weapon and device.

    No, Adam Lanza murdered a truck load of children and adults. He just happened to use guns, just like he could have used a bomb or other device.

    I guess deer hunters should throw rocks at the deer in hopes of maybe killing one?
