    No more assault weapons. No more right-to-carry. Background checks required. Three references required. No more gun show sales. I'm all for it. The time is now.

    And, by the way, enforce the laws already on the books as to those who own/carry/transport illegal guns of any kind.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You folks are also using this incident for political gain, simply by saying "Look how disgusting they are" you are attempting to make yourself look better in comparison, hence an attempt to again from the event. Of course if you did nothing than those other people on the left who are taking advantage of it as well won't be subject to as much ridicule as they should be. That's why I hate politics, there is no moral high ground and there's no way to claim since regardless of your opinion there's always a way to gain from any situation.

    I've seen machine guns hanging on the wall at my local gun store. Surely "a machine gun is a machine gun...." ? Surely a 22-automatic rifle with an extended magazine can wreak havoc...If one is defending their home, a double-barrel shotgun'll work just fine -- won't it?

    My knowledge of guns is quite - very - completely limited. But I know that ordinary people like me ought'nt be able to walk into a gun shop and buy these kinds of weapons. And I sure can now.

    She's hoping she can play on people's guilt. I can hear it now, "you wanted Gabby to get killed! That's why you won't vote for this bill!".

    It's not a hysterical reaction. It's plain old common sense. Want to go hunting? Want to protect your home? Fine. But people just don't need to be able to shoot 18 rounds --plus -- without reloading. They just don't.

    I would wager that you did not actually see machine guns at your local store. I would wager that you saw things that looked scary and that you assumed were machine guns. Accordingly, I don't think you really have the factual knowledge necessary to decide which guns should and should not be banned.

    They probably weren't actual machine guns. Especially, if they were just hanging on the wall.

    BTW, if they are actual machine guns, call the ATF and you can get the store owner in a ****load of trouble. Automatic weapons have to be locked up in a vault, at all times, unless the weapon is being transported from one place to another and then, it can only be possessed by a class 3 Federal Firearms License holder.

    .If one is defending their home, a double-barrel shotgun'll work just fine -- won't it?
    You can't shoot through walls very effectively with a shotgun.
