    Abortions kill more children than guns ever will.
    Abortions are designed to kill human children.
    Are your rights to have an abortion more important than the children they kill?
  • #30
    Whhy would you bring abortion into a gun control forum? Abortion is legal! Cold blooded murderer is not! Don't even try telling me that garbage about abortion being murderer, because it sure as hell is not! A zygoat or fetus is NOT a fully form, living, breathing, decision making person.
  • #32
    @classychazy What I bring up in a forum is up to me. I will not apologize for not conforming to your standards.

    I guess maybe we should just practice some adult abortions and purge our lives of these subhumans.
  • #36
    @classychazy By your own standards this subhuman commited 20 accounts of abortion. A five year old is not a fully formed decision making person. Hell a large portion of this world does not fit those standards.

    Simple question to ask your congressman. The capital, house and senate are enveloped with police and security. You protect yourselves very well. Why can you conduct your business free of any threat of a crazy shooting you, while our children are being killed on their college campus, in their class rooms, at movie theaters, at malls ? Why congress, is your own safety more important than a child's?

    you really think that is going to stop this madness.look at new york city they have gun control and look how many people get killed in that city every month. we can't stop illegals and drugs from coming into this country do you think your are going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.your crimes will get worse. america has lost for the most part its self respect and its respect for life and you can thank your big corporations who only care about money, hollywood and your tv for all the sex and violence they put out there(there is always something that has a sexual overtone in almost every commercial and all of you who think those commercials are funny are part of the problem also because kids of all ages think everything is perfectly alright because the adults don't see anything wrong with.well think again and look what is happening,single parent families and kids staying alone for long periods of time with no one showing any love for them.ask yourself what would you do in their place) and it your polititions who want to get re-elected at any cost that also contributes to this.

    Funny, as a gun toting bible thumping conservative, the first thing I thought about after hearing about this shooting wasn't the right to carry a gun. It was for the family's that lost their child and what type of wacko would have done something like this. It is a shame that the anti gun weenies couldn't do the same. I read someone state we need sensible gun laws. How many more gun laws do we need on the books? There are numerous gun laws on the books. Written words do not work. Checks and balances do! When you have a well armed citizenry, people will think twice about who they go after. Anyone ever heard of a wacko going into a police station full of armed officers trying this?? Nope, it is always in a gun free zone. Wake up people!! The Supreme Court has already ruled in the case of 7/15/05 SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES No. 04-278 TOWN OF CASTLE ROCK, COLORADO, PETITIONER v. JESSICA GONZALES. You are responsible for your own security. If you get the government to take away law abiding citizens guns, you will be at the mercy of the state and we all know the red tape you have to go through to get the state to do anything. Ref: Katrina/Sandy etc!
  • #100
    How do you not see the words "bible thumping" and "gun toting" as incompatible?
    Do you just ignore everything Jesus said when reading?
    Or perhaps, and I think this is more likely, you spend too much time thumping others with the bible to actually read it and apply it to yourself
  • #186
    @Cheenoguy I am hoping you are a bible scholar so you can try to school me. I would like for you to quote anywhere in the bible where Jesus/God states you cannot protect yourself. Sure he says to turn the other cheek. But NOT every time you get hit. Basically it means to have patience and think wisely before you react.

    If you are not the bible scholar that I believe you are not, here is a good reference on bible thumping and gun toting...

    I hope you would read it, but I kind of doubt with your reply, you would have any interest in educating yourself!

    Your right, unfortunately, I am human and a lot of times I fall off the wagon and do not apply the bible to my daily life. But again, human here, it is bound to happen. But one thing that will not happen to me is that I will fall a victim like I see you being. I will protect myself and will not cower to some evil thug who will do anything to get his next fix!

    Where is the call for meaningful action to provide mental health services!?

    Where is the call to allow school principles to protect the children in their schools?

    We have the right to bear arms, it is in our nation's DNA put there by our constitution. Guns are not the problem, it's other aspects of our culture that spur these horrific attacks. Why are we ignoring those and vilifying the tool used instead?

    Like the VTech shooter the root cause will probably be an unaddressed mental disorder, not the weapon used.
  • #107
    If we actually had healthcare for all we would have mental health services for all. The same people who hate gun regulation generally oppose healthcare for all.

    60 million people have to be deemed as streetable. There is no way to do anything for that many mentally ill people. From what I've seen, lately, governors are defunding mental health. Generally, Whites' genes, after 35 years of age are naturally producing a lot of these subhumans. If they want children, then they better start having them earlier.

    @FFX_VA 1 in 5 above the age of 5 years old, in America, are diagnosed with a mental deficiency of some kind. Mental Disorders in America

    Mental disorders are common in the United States and internationally. An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans ages 18 and older — about one in four adults — suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.1 When applied to the 2004 U.S. Census residential population estimate for ages 18 and older, this figure translates to 57.7 million people.2 Even though mental disorders are widespread in the population, the main burden of illness is concentrated in a much smaller proportion — about 6 percent, or 1 in 17 — who suffer from a serious mental illness.1 In addition, mental disorders are the leading cause of disability in the U.S. and Canada.3 Many people suffer from more than one mental disorder at a given time. Nearly half (45 percent) of those with any mental disorder meet criteria for 2 or more disorders, with severity strongly related to comorbidity

    have the right to own firearms.
    Liberals always blame the weapon and not the person.
    If a teacher at the school would of had a 357 magnum, Maybe things would have been different, However.
    Then liberals would have made the teacher a Villian for having a gun at school.

    "If a teacher at the school would of had a 357 magnum, Maybe things would have been different" One of the teachers did own guns - the shooter's mother. He used them to go to the school and shoot kids after murdering her.

    Thousands are calling for the president to "immediately address the issue of gun control through the introduction of legislation in Congress." What legislation, exactly? Could someone please tell me what laws would have prevented this particular tragedy? The guns belonged to the shooter's mother, who had a clean background and was able to obtain firearms legally. So what laws are we wanting to add to the books?

    Instead of all the hue and cry for more gun control, let's take up a fight for better mental health care, especially for teens and young adults. Let's give grants to scientists who want to discover what triggers the first onset of schizophrenia or bi-polar disorder. Let's urge big pharmaceutical companies to focus on better medications for clinical depression in young people.

    This fool violated many gun laws already. He possessed a gun as a retard. That is against the law. He took the gun o a school grounds. Another law. He killed people. Still another law broken. Laws do nothing to protect people and the sooner you learn that the better. Want to protect kids at school. Arm the teachers just as it was in day gone by. I taught 29 years and had a pistol on me every day. I never had the call to use it, but it was there. Now the Democrats want more laws. Can those fools not see that CRIMINALS do not obey the law. That is why they are criminals. Stop the ignorance and allow responsibile people to have arms to protect the kids. Anything else is an ignorant Democrat idea, and will not work.

    "Many Americans ask for prompt legislative action in response to tragic Connecticut school shooting"

    And many more Americans would like cooler heads to prevail. This naked "Hurry! Hurray!" attitude to pass legislation while emotion is driving the conversation is distressing at the least. One would expect Americans to reject this call for people to set their reason aside in favor of emotion-driven Law...

    Here we go again, the minority of the Liberal control patrol trying to force us all to bow to their vocal minority with the Liberal press making them sound like they are the majority. There are only a very few minority groups telling the President that we need gun control. The sad fact is that our lame duct President will now show his true spots and come down on Gun control. He is a liar and only shows his true beliefs when it can't be hurt him in re election. Our nation is now being run by a Liberal Socialist and a welfare base electing him. We the people, the tax payers no longer have a voice unless we scream from the roof tops that we will not take any more Obamacares and other laws forcing us to think as they do.

    @cowboy67 there are quick access codes like finger print match on red circle hhhmm. or on the handle of the gun they colud put a small card in it like a gate pass card. with numbers to match the weapon . but i do under stand what your saying .. i think ever school should have 5 grad dogs our service men and women have them and so should schools .

    @raywenk I see the point ur trying to make, but its unrealistic. You've never been shot at or in woken in the middle of the night to face someone ready to do you harm. It's scary, your adrenal glands dump everything they have into your system and its pure muscle memory, instinct, and training at that point. You're not thinking about authenticating yourself as an authorized user of your weapon, ain't going to work, so it becomes a club at that point. The only thing you focus on is reading the threat and eliminating it to keep you and those with you safe.

    What we need to address is identifying the mental & social problems that lead to these nightmares and solve them.

    America seems happy to except this type of shooting rather than look at sensible gun restrictions. Why no shooting licence to say your an approved trained shooter, why no references to validate mental stability? Why no mandatory gun safes? Why no restriction on the number of handguns? Why high capacity handguns for the ordinary civilian. Why no medical to test for drugs?

    #2. So you can trust someone's friends to give an accurate reference?

    #3. A gun locked in a safe can not protect you. A subhuman that can plan what this one did can probably get into a safe.

    #4. What if my primary weapon malfunctions and I need to transition to a secondary. What if I want to carry a different gun today?

    #5. High compasity magazines allow me to stay in the fight longer before having to spend 1-1.5 seconds to reload.

    #6. I see countless drug addicts pass
    drug test. Just because someone can pass a drug test means they don't have drugs in their system at that moment. It does not mean they never have or will.

    And idiots like you seem content to think that if lawful people have no weapons the criminals will respect them. If you don't have a weapon you are a damn fool. If you have laws in place affirming the notion that any lawful person is unable to defend themselves some crackhead can walk into your house and beat you to death with a wiffle ball bat. It would be far more effective for minorities to take responsibility for the urban crime rate.

    1/ What makes you say he was an exceptional marksman? Training makes shooters both better but also shows a degree interest in safety. If training is a requirement legal access is more difficult. Getting guns legal/illegal should not be easy.

    2/ Of course everything can be subverted. How easy would a loner individual have found it to get two friends to sign him off to be of sound mind and body for owning firearms?

    3/ Well I suppose if you are of the mentality that the world is out to get you then a gun under the pillow is a great idea. Might protect you from the tooth fairy also. If these guns had been in a safe he would not have had access, neither would all the children killed by there fathers home defence weapon/s every year.

    4/ Can you explain outside of the theater of war the reasonable chance of you needing two weapons? I guess when the zombies are climbing through your windows right?

    5/ Allow you to stay in the fight longer? I laughed at that one! Your involved in a gun fight needing 17 rounds of ammunition and then the reload time is also critical? Do you live in America or Afghanistan?

    7/ Civilians have the right to own weapons to protect themselves from the trained soilders. If as a firearms instructor you said that to me, and then asked me to sign you off as of fit mind to own a gun, I would refuse. No need for me to say more.

    But I think you will get you wish William. Nothing will change in the United States.
