Would you rather they use pipe bombs or fertilizer based bombs...its not the guns oc..its the people. I think a mass education on reading signs of impending atrocities would be a better strategy.


The fact of the matter is there has been 14000 gun-related deaths in the US so far this year,which is a disportionately high rate per capita. I'm against the idea that anybody in the states can get an assault rifle and wreck havoc on innocent people.
Its insane.

How about this....guns reduce death tolls by simple inefficiency.
Poison gas , bombs, insane people do insane things. Is there a stat anywhere about how many lives having a gun has saved? Do not confuse my stance as not having compassion and utmost sympathy for all who were harmed.

What's really insane is putting child-killers back on the street because they were deemed insane:

When you think about after the World Trade 9/11 episode that killed .what ... 3700 the USA went to war costing Trillions and yet 14,000 deaths is seemingly OK. If the Americans want the right to bare arms per the 2nd amendment let them carry a musket or make buying ammunition very very difficult ...immediately

I was just clicking on a news site when my son came into my office for his pre nap hug. I saw the news from CT, gave the kid an extra long hug, then went searching for jokes about the shooting.

Look on the bright side, those parents can now return all those kid's shitty Christmas presents and buy something nice for themselves. Something in the 9mm line.

Making guns more difficult to acquire will not change the attitude that people need to arm themselves to individually protect themselves.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

GO GUNS GO!

Somebody bring Charlton Heston back from the dead, where are our spokesman in the name of guns? People, children WHO CARES. It's all about the guns, man. SAVE THE GUNS!

This brings a tear to my eye seeing everyone hear rally around guns, expressing their love for the amazingly fantastic hunting rifles - semi-automatics, hand guns etc.

I love the latest excuse from the NRA fucktards. "If every citizen was allowed to arm themselves out in public, incidents like t his would never happen. "Here you go little Johnny, a gun for your Graduation present, now go out and wander the streets, shit-faced and if anyone looks you the wrong way, just pull out your pistol and fire away" BLAM, BLAM, BLAM!

Personally, I think we should hand out hunting licenses to non-gun loving people to hunt and kill any NRA member around the world they see fit. The NRA wants guns? How about putting them on the receiving end of them? They shouldn't have any complaints, right? That would be very hypocritical of them, wouldn't it? So if they don't mind dying by their beloved sword, why not put NRA members in season?

Yeehaw

Yeehaw indeed BD, I have a novel idea I wanted to float by you...

We line up all the pro gun lobbyists against the wall and shoot them.

BANG! no more pro gun people.

The NRA and the chicken-shit politicians who listen to their lobbyists all have blood on their hands over this latest massacre. Try and tell the parents of these children why there isn't stricter gun laws in the US.

The NRA claim their lobbyists are trying to protect the constitution,I say bull-shit, it has everything to do with the billions of dollars the gun manufacturers are making.

The vast majority of Americans are peaceful law-abiding citizens,and if given the chance would overwhelmingly vote for much stricter gun laws. Fuck the NRA.

By that logic we should kill all potential murderers.

And everyone is a potential murderer.

We're gunna need more guns.

Or would you prefer ice-picks? :crazy:

Oh bullshit, the psychos would be gathering up dynamite and firing up chain-saws if they couldn't get aholda guns.

Maybe it's time to figure out why so many folks these days *looks directly at RD* are harbouring murderous thoughts.

Dude does hate the Gillis....maybe we should worry

My opinion is this:
There really isn't much need for assault rifles or handguns other than killing human beings. Hunting rifles are a useful appliance than many, many good people shouldn't have to do without because of a few nut jobs.
Why not adopt more stringent regulations and severely restrict access to these specific "anti-personnel weapons", then keep shot guns and hunting rifles available to hunters and those who aren't psychos'. It's a step towards a more globally recognized way of managing weaponry which may bring US murder rates down. I understand that it's not the guns doing the killing but restricting availability can't actually hurt.
The 2nd amendment was written in the day of muzzle loading muskets. How about every Americans "Right to Bear Arms" being limited to the weapons of this time period? I'm sure when the amendment was written the founding fathers didn't envision this much pain. A 20 lb muzzle loading musket, a horn of powder and balls would definitely slow down these idiots from doing this much harm.
Couple this with a more effective mental health evaluation system maybe? I don't know. I really can't imagine how this guy could do what he did. He must have exhibited signs somehow. He must have.

Exactly U D L Nobody, and I mean nobody, needs an assault rifle capable of using 30-50 rounds of ammunition in a matter of seconds to defend themselves.

http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-1 ... n-in-China

Man stabs 22 primary school students in a knife attack in China on Friday, officials said, the latest in a series of assaults.


Besides, the bad guys are always gonna get guns in America.

Some believe what's needed is more guns in the hands of the good guys.

If Booth was on his way to the target range and saw that evil bastard approaching the school, he coulda took him out, no?



The kids in China are all going to live as it turns out. Exactly my point. If he had an assault rifle we would be mourning another twenty child deaths.

Maybe we should arm all the teachers with shot-guns, the bad guys would have to come in to the class with automatic weapons and then we could arm the good guys with grenades,.... and on and on.

No, I stand by what I said earlier. The NRA has blood on its hands on this one. I'm guessing this is why they shut down their facebook page.

I see the NRA is back on facebook today. Fucking cowards went off it since saturday because they knew they couldn't come up with any excuses for their stance on the right for everyone to own any weapon they want including automatic weapons. Morons.

I don't know why they stop there, with high-powered Semi-automatic rifles that can fire of a billion rounds per second, Americans should be allowed to arm themselves with a stick of dynamite, a rocket launcher, hand grenade etc. Same affect really, mow down a bunch of people in a short order. At least with dynamite, the victims have a short window to scramble unlike a psycho with a semi-automatic.
