    I saw that too..it's floating all over facebook....just wonder if people will actually pay attention this time and do something about instead of being content with being yet another example on that list. history does repeat it's self...i only hope the people of this great nation break that chain and stand up...our country was founded on the ideals that freedom is paramount....and is worth fighting and dying for....

    Those are the type of historical facts that make me, usually socially liberal, very much against any interference with 2nd Amendment rights. I wouldn't want to become one of these statistics. Disarming the populace is the first act of any totalitarian regime.

    What about all the countries that have enacted gun control and have not rounded up and killed a single human?

    No gun control in the Us and we rounded up how many asians and put them in camps..

    California did the same with mexicans once. Just grabbed people off the street and shipped them to mexico. Some of them had been here for generations, but they looked like immigrants...

    how did the guns help them?

    @woodtick57 proof positive that our govt has no problem with rounding up it's own citizens and doing away with them....all the more reason to be on guard. your comment, though it may not have been intended as such, adds weight to what we are saying. our leaders have rounded up and removed it's own citizens before, citizens who legally, had just as much right as you or i to be here. what makes you think that they would hesitate for an instant to do it again when they felt it would suit their purposes. They know, no i take that back, they THINK that if the repeal the 2nd amendment and "disarm us" they can do as they please with little to no opposition. They are wrong. if there is anything in this country it's citizens would be willing to break the law for and fight for it's freedom. our country has done it before and i believe if they try, we will do it again. They fear an uprising....they know we are on to their schemes and tactics....THAT'S why they want us on foodstamps and welfare...they think a person will not fight against a govt that decides if they eat or not. thats why they want us disarmed....because they know that we will not give up our freedom without a fight

    @PolitixDain Your selection of photo is exceptionally biased.... I AM a member of the NRA and find YOUR selecting someone obviously looking like a bimbo to be insulting. Am I to come away thinking you think my daughter, a LIFE MEMBER and competitive shooter a bimbo or me a buffoon? Reprehensible.

    @woodtick57 No. I didn't call her a bimbo... " someone obviously looking like a bimbo" isn't the same at all.... but I'm sure she's happy to have you serving as her surrogate as well.

    Before the sun set on that sad day the radicals started calling for gun control without showing true sympathy for the families or trying to understand what caused it to happen. Of course this fueled a surge in gun purchases & NRA applicants, middle America sees the need to defend their families, and to defend against the imminent knee jerk attack on their 2nd Amendment rights.

    "Not a real member of the NRA" the photo says. Maybe because a real member of the NRA is an old white guy with a beer gut and a face full of stubble?

    Or that the NRA could be simply following the example of the Axelshaft/ Jarrett Junta and LYING?

    Neither is likely..... NRA membership statistics are easy to research.... I understand they didn't promise to be transparent and open....

    No error. I and my entire family joined yesterday. While doing the paperwork, the girl said they had been swamped and having to work 10 hour shifts. There was no reason for her to tell me this, she had no agenda. The only solution to gun violence is another gun.

    This may be the most ashamed I have ever been to be an American. And that's with the Iraq war and drone strikes in our history.
  • #67
    !
    Ashamed that people think they should be allowed to defend themselves? Ashamed that they'd want to be able to disable shooters so their are less fatalities?

    If I was living in a dangerous area of town, I personally would want an assault rifle.

    And if you're so ashamed to be an America, please, leave. Head to whatever country you think is better. That statement is very unpatriotic and insulting to the people who died for our freedom and great life.

    @Politicskid
    Ashamed that sickos refuse to simply defend themselves with basic firearms that are more then sufficient for self-defense. Instead they want weapons designed to kill many people at one time. If you need an assault weapon or a clip that holds more then 10 rounds you either make very poor decisions or your aim is horrible. Either you are too irresponsible to own a gun or your inability to use it makes it unsafe to the public (and your family) for you to own one.
    Ashamed that sickos like you want firearms beyond what any civilian needs so badly that you are consistently willing to sacrifice children on the alter of the NRA. Over 30 school shootings since Columbine. That's an average of right about 2 a year. But since you either put yourself (and perhaps family) in dangerous situations or can't hit the broad side of barn and need 30 round clips to "protect yourself".
    You know what's unpatriotic? 26 Americans dying everyday at the hands of your "precious".

    @Cheenoguy which is better, to have an assault rifle and never need it? or to not have an, assault rifle and need it? because the way this disfunctional disunified society is deteriating, you never know, what kind of weapon you might need.

    @1adam2
    Which is better? To take steps to remain a developed nation or deteriate and become a 3rd world nation?

    @Cheenoguy and just how much more, idolitry do you suggest that does not work? so no i do not believe, you are willing to take the steps necessary. since you obviously do not believe, it is G-D WHO determines, which country becomes great with HIM.

    Every time there is a senseless, tragic massacre like this, people continue the pro/con rhetoric of gun control. We already have gun control laws. The major change I advocate is closing the loopholes afforded private dealers at private gun shows. They should be required to perform the same checks prior to sale as retailers selling firearms. And the background checks should be interlinked state to state and federally. If the drivers licensing agencies can interlink, so can gun dealers.
    And while we need to leave the second amendment alone, so too the first. But that doesn't stop us as a society, from making the promotion of violent entertainment socially unacceptable. Media promotes violent games, programs, movies because they $ell.
    But the 300 pound gorilla in the room is the mental health issues that affect all most ALL of these perpetrators. We have to remove the stigma associated with seeking mental health treatment. And we have to offer more practical options to family members and even close associates who recognize and try to help symptomatic behavior. How many times have family members, friends seeking help been told, "The law can't do anything until he/she actually commits a crime!"
    Yes, of course, it IS an extremely slippery slope. But as that famous cab driver once said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
    Reports indicate that Adam Lanza's mother recognized the need for and was considering the options towards a structure in Adam's life. She knew he was both troubled and intellectually gifted. But he was a legal adult, and her options were limited.
    So instead of revisiting the redundant "to control or not to control guns," issue, which eventually will fade away, once again, let's broaden our discussion a bit and deal with helping to find practical ways to deal with the potentially, criminally insane.
    After all, anyone can recognize that a mad man can find many ways to kill many people.

    Americans have been reacting to this regime's gun-banning intent from day one. Record gun sales and record applications for concealed carry permits are the hallmark of this regime. Obumble: Gun salesman of the decade!

    This is not a response to Sandy Hook. It IS a response to the rampant exploitation of Sandy Hooke by the Democratic party as a means to legitimize draconian gun control.

    You know what, let's not call it gun control. Gun control fanatics have for too long controlled the language. We'll call it like it is: looking at Feinstein's newest drivel, it is probably best called the "Disarmament of the People Act of 2013" or the "Violent Crime Encouragement Act of 2013" or the "Hello Police State Act of 2013."

    Dain, please tell me that the photo here was not chosen by you. If so, as a Lifetime Members of the NRA I can attest to the fact that most of us don't look like that.

    Before I go and say something that will send all you gun-totin' Fox News lovers into a hissy fit, I've got to tell ya'll that I'm not a big fan of banning guns from private ownership. But this sudden urge to protect gun ownership, after 26 children and teachers were shot to death in a Newton Ct. school, is proof positive that an awful lot of Americans are on some kind of psychiatric or recreational drug, which, I believe, has been the cause of most of the shootings in the first place. The only way, according to the 8,000 god-fearin' Americans who are ponying up to the NRA bar, to stop this latest massacre, is to arm 6 year olds and teachers. Personally, I cannot imagine how arming teachers and children would make anyone's world safer, but then, wouldn't this have been the only way to have prevented the Newtown tragedy. Let's face reality gang. There are just some things in life that can't be prevented, and this apparently was one of them. So calm down, there are many reasons to protect a citizen's right to bear arms, but mass hysteria isn't one of them.

    @Politicskid I'm not going to argue Fox and MSNBC with you. Both are so biased that they might as well be identified as propaganda machines for the GOP and Dems. You can say what you like my opinion is not changing. I would not call either of them news in any way shape or form. Case Closed.

    @Politicskid Lots of places. Tons of places. I read both the left and right. What I don't do is watch Fox or MSNBC (other than Morning Joe who is a moderate Republican and who I like) beyond that it's none of your business.

    @jessejaymes I do, too. But I think that if you're going to bring it up, you should be willing to share what sources of news you commonly use. The fact of the matter is is most of the media is liberal, so yes it's certainly important to have a variety of sources. Let's hear it.

    More and More real and true Americans have now largely awakened to the fact that this socialist Obama admin will have thrown away our Rights, Freedoms, Liberty and our 2nd Amendment freedoms, For the Betterment of the weak , liberal, socialist, welfare state, They now seek.
    Americans wake up. This Obama is tossing your rights under the Socialists bus

    Awesome Statement! Ever since Obama became President, we have seen one disaster after another. History has taught us what happened with strict gun control: Adolf Hitler/Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany seized guns and the worst event in History. I love My Country USA but Fear Our Socialist Liberal Government.
