    That's EXACTLY what I thought the minute I read this. The GOP should invite a group of people who's lives have been saved by a responsible law abiding person having a gun.

    Shows again what a bunch of morons the Liberal Loons of the Left are. Besides, what they are after is not going to happen. The Senate can't even pass the gun ban with a Democrat majority, much less the House.

    I'll bet all are carefully selected so as to support a selected agenda promoted by the morons that came up with the idea.

    Politicians need a 12 step program to overcome their addiction to power & control. Its not about kids or guns. Its about their desire for control because they know better than you. There are things that they can and should control like their spending and creating a budget etc...and there are things beyond their control like irrational mentally ill people doing irrational acts.

    It's sad the Democrats never speak to the thousands of women harmed with severe depression from Abortions they had. The hypocrisy of Democrat compassion for hurting folks when it suits their agenda is truly amazing. If an Ambassador should die at the hands of terrorists, it's ok to campaign in Las Vegas the day after. Wow, Obama's compassion is awe inspiring is it not?

    @NormalFlora Spare me the denials. I've heard numerous accounts form doctors, psychologist, the women themselves, etc. Do you people on the left ever get tired of denying things you don't want the public to hear?

    @Quick From your link:
    "Abortion may be a risk factor for subsequent depression in the period of 8 years after the pregnancy event. The higher rates of depression identified may be due to delayed reactions, persistence of depression, OR SOME OTHER COMMON RISK FACTOR."
    (Emphasis mine)

    So they are depressed. Abortion carries with it very emotional baggage. However, they made a choice to abort for practical reasons, which they have decided is in their best interest. They would likely be even more depressed being saddled with an infant they decided they should not have.

    Just another way to make the second amendment look bad, when in reality, it will protect little kids like these from power mad people like Pelosi! But not if they get it taken away first!

    As Ann Coulter correctly pointed out the white murder rate in this country is equivalent to the murder rate in Belgium. So, who is committing all of the violence in this country? I know who. Do you?

    @Denizen_Kate Blacks make up approximately 13-18% of the U.S. population but young black males make up over half of the U.S. prison population. Fact. Like I said, I know who is committing most of the violence in this country and it's not young white males. Next.

    @OhWiseOne - I stand by my comment. You're comparing apples to oranges. The topic is the nut bags who take semi-automatic weapons to public places and mow down innocent people at random.

    @OhWiseOne - I wasn't disputing your statement, and mine stands as fact as well. I just didn't want to get into a whole "this is why most prisoners are young black men" discussion with you.

    If the message was to reduce the causes of violence without interfering with the right to bear arms, I would support such a maneuver... but I do not support "gun control" legislation. If we do not address the societal conditions that are creating the violence, it's just feel good legislation that will accomplish nothing. Our goal should be to reduce the number of victims of violence, not the number of guns. As long as that is their only goal, they are missing the mark entirely.

    Another exploitative, crass, and manipulative attempt to push unwarranted laws through while national hysteria is still at an all-time high. No one says it better than the US Department of Justice: "Gun Control policies, and especially gun bans, are highly controversial crime control measures, and the debates tend to be dominated by anecdotes and emotion rather than empirical findings" Page 10, "Impacts of the Assault Weapons Ban of 1994", National Institute of Justice Research in Brief, Publication No. NCJ-173405. Which, BTW, repeats OVER AND OVER AGAIN, "the banned weapons and magazines were rarely used to commit murders in this country"; "were used only rarely in gun crimes before the ban", etc. You see, when the statistics don't back the claims of the gun-grabbers, and the USDOJ can't be made to knuckle under and cook their books, then the next best thing for the gun-grabbers is to BAN FIREARMS RESEARCH so your own government agencies don't make you out to be a liar, and exploit a handful of isolated, albeit horrific tragedies to begin on the incremental disarmament of The American People, little by little. Remember what always comes out of the mouths of gun-grabbers: "this is a good FIRST STEP...". First step to what? http://assaultweaponsbanof2013.blogspot.com

    Ya to bring some of those people from California who sold their guns to the cops in that Buy buy back program in Los Angeles asking how they feel now... I bet they wish I could buy those guns back .. ;-o

    maybe the other side needs to bring in all who have ever saved a life including their own by having a firearm,put adds in the papers and on the news so all can come forward on something they did not have to report to the police.

    how about bringing in the family members of those killed by illegal aliens into the immigration debates? there are more deaths by illegal aliens in this country than there is mass shootings.

    Here's s thought.... provide some counseling for those affected, that would be more appropriate than parading them in front of people who are just using the tragedies that happened to these poor people for pure political gain!

    Playing to people's sympathy is not the way to get things done! Emotions are not the way to run our country. I'm sorry these people were affected by gun violence, but what does a fourth grader that wasn't even at Sandyhook know? Only what her parents and teacher told her. The time is now to think common sense. Our second ammendment rights are not to be infringed upon! It doesn't matter what emotions are involved. I've had a gun held to my head. You know what difference that made to me? That I should have a gun of my own to keep that from ever happening to me again. If I'd had a gun pointing back at him, he could have never grabbed me and spun me around with my back on his body with his gun at my head. Not that we should restrict guns to law abiding citizens. Law or not, the bad guy is going to have whatever gun he wants. It does not matter if the gun he has is illegal. He got it illegally in the first place! To remain law abiding citizens just means the criminals will have us at a disadvantage. Anyone who believes new legislation is going to stop gun violence is sadly mistaken. They will be able to get any gun they want. Gangs have fully automatic machine guns. Those have been illegal forever, didn't stop them from getting and using them. The coincidence of so much gun violence right when our government was already preparing legislation for gun control is staggering. It almost seems too coincidental, but I don't think our own government would actually kill people to get their gun control. Right now I am trying to get an AR15 because the media coverage of it makes it look like a good gun to have in my home for defense of my child and myself. Light weight, low recoil, the ability to keep shooting until an aggressive person that broke into my house goes down and the stock folds down to make it easier for me to handle. I'm not very big. Right now I have two hand guns I can use for protection. One is a semi-automatic American Eagle .357. The other is a small .357 revolver. I like the ability to keep shooting with the first gun and the ease of use of the other. But when it comes to the safety of my little girl and myself, I'll deal with the strength it takes to control the semi-automatic American Eagle .357 because of the ability to keep shooting faster until the criminal goes down. Faster shooting with more ammo is preferable to me than slower shooting and less ammo. I prefer not to shoot to kill. Just reduce him from being a threat intil the police arrive. I do not want to ever kill someone, but I will to protect my daughter. And no, she cannot get to the guns. She doesn't even know they exist. Both have trigger locks, but my preferable guns clip is full and right beside the gun. The trigger lock key stays on me. My daughter thinks the key around my neck at night is the key to my heart. Actually it partly is because it is part of the way I keep my baby safe.

    @Knightmare
    ? What are you trying to say? I want rational thought, not people in congress using these people who are in pain to get what they want.

    Of course they are; it's what Democrats do, exploit people for political gain. It will not change the minds of thinking people who understand that these people on display suffered from "gun violence" because they were UNarmed when they were attacked. In years past the exploitation of people has included outright fraud on the part of the Democrats. We will undoubtedly see that again too.

    There is a political gain to exploiting the cure for cancer... radiation therapy came out of the need to dispose of waste from nuclear weapons production... there are far more effective treatments and cures for cancer that are less harmful to the patient, but that science is stifled for political reasons. There is also political gain for opposing the legalization of marijuana and the FDA approval of herbal remedies. Big Pharma hates the competition so it gives alot of money to support politicians who promise to vote in their financial favor.

    @DogLady_1 I worked with oncologists for many years. Your conspiracy theory has no merit. Have you ever heard of Tumor Board? Each patient's disease status, staging, prognosis and treatment plan are reviewed meticulously. NO oncologist would expose a patient to radiation therapy unless there was clear evidence that it would benefit the patient.

    "...cancer patients who refuse chemotherapy and radiation actually live up to FOUR TIMES LONGER THAN TREATED CASES... Every cancer patient who keeps in excellent physical shape may have many good years left. The alternative is to squander those years as an invalid through radical medical intervention, which has zero chance of extending life." Dr. Hardin Jones, University of California Department of Medical Physics, published in Transactions, New York Academy of Science, series 2, v. 18, n.3, p.322

    ThinkProgress just reported that 15 gun crimes have ben committed since the New Year began! I left them this note? Wow, gulp... approximately 15 occurrences! Imagine, 15 so far out of 350 million citizens! If it was 100 it wouldn't be a damn drop in the ocean. Don't say I mentioned this now, but perhaps a percentage of those shot deserved to be have been shot! Ahem.. Keep posting this biased, political based rhetoric, we're not swallowing it! Quit your fear mongering! Evidently those 15 or so were criminals and not law abiding citizens who have a right to bear arms, then again some of them may have been protecting themselves.. Quit taking sides with this Dictatorship Government simply to bolster your own false ego that you probably just did acquire and only after finally having posted such garbage! Do you feel proud of yourself now? Here, let me pat you on the back of the head with a ball peen hammer you idiots! Big brave journalists, you are all nothing more than brown nosing, Obama double cheek smooching patriots! Its fools like you who not only got this buffoon into office, but now you help him break the law as well! The Government is probably greasing your palm so you can help them continue on with this tyrannical vendetta they have against gun owners! Of course not only do you smooch butt, but surely must be one of the braves who are on the warpath, from one of those Liberal tribes! Think Progress? This is not progress for the citizens, rather merely for the Government and you brown nosing jerks! So put that in your damn peace pipe and smoke it!
