"Your stupid enough to believe removing weapons from GOOD law abiding citizenry will somehow make the bad guys hand in their weapons.."

35 gun deaths in the UK last year

12,000 in the US

The UK outlawed guns, and it worked.

Can't handle the truth? Too bad, idiot.

Nope. I'm stupid enough to think if someone like me can EASILY buy a gun with a minimal background check and stockpile ammo off the internet... any mentally unstable fukwad can. I'm stupid enough to think that, if we make it AT LEAST AS HARD to own a gun as it is to own a car, we will have fewer cases like Newton, Aurora, Columbine, etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc


But I see your point... if Al Qaeda can get one of our best at a shooting range full of guns... or someone can walk into a IHOP and waste a bunch of National Guardsmen... or someone with a history of mental illness can kill 13 in a military academy... yep, the answer is clearly more guns. In fact, the ONLY thing that will make us safe is to lift ALL restrictions on ALL firearms. Come to think of it, the only SANE response to mass shootings is to issue everyone a gun and require that they carry it on them at all times.

Philo,

Your boy Krugman has difficulty speaking in complete sentences.

"But what really strikes me — I don’t know how this plays, you know, what will happen. What strikes me is we’ve actually gotten a glimpse into the mindset, though, of the pro-gun people and we’ve seen certainly Wayne LaPierre and some of these others. It’s bizarre. They have this vision that we’re living in a “Mad Max” movie and that nothing can be done about it, that America cannot manage unless everybody’s prepared to shoot intruders, that — the idea that we have a police forces that provides public safety is somehow totally impractical, despite the fact that, you know, that is, in fact, the way we live."


Huh? That's just gibberish. He's babbling. He makes no sense at all, because he can't focus his thoughts.

Yes, we know that will work, because of what happened at the shooting range in TX on Saturday.

Hahahahaha

Yeah wes the IHOP was full of UN ARMED natl guardsmen and Women. And after that,, they were instructed to not even wear their uniforms into town for lunch.. Let alone side arms. So in this instance,, our regulated militia is absolutely USELESS.. Thats much like the way we go about things isnt it? We get to be stripped and searched to get on an airplane now. Instead of profiling the hell out of the obvious we will make everyone suffer.

The UK has a pretty high violent-crime rate, maybe not guns, but still...Also they do not have a 2nd Amendment. Do you propose repealing the 2nd? Banning guns?

Good luck.

NRA opposes background checks on law-abiding citizens.

How does a gun shop/show know if someone is a law-abiding citizen? By doing a background check.


But then, you expect any kind of rational thought process from a gun nut? Hahahahaha

But only 35 gun deaths, compared to our 12,000 - obviously, outlawing guns works, and has been proven to work.

And that's the truth.

How many gun-related deaths in "gun-free" Chicago?? Is that working?

Do you advocate banning ALL guns?

Chaz, sorry you didn't understand that that is a direct transcript from an on air interview not a prepared speech.

Blue, I wish you guys would get off the phony pony ride of "banning ALL guns".
That is not and has never been the issue.

Waiting on an answer to a simple question Ron.

If yes to kids, are they grown and gone or are they still in school?

Then what the f*#k is your solution? Do you realize that a semi-auto handgun is more lethal in close quarters than an "assault rifle"?

Most 9mm handguns have around a 15-round capacity. Now imagine someone with 3 magazines. That's 45 rounds. And 1 9mm round will kill you if placed properly. 45 dead people.

It ain't the guns, it's the mind that needs to be fixed. If you want my solution to stop these shootings, I would force everyone taking psychotropic meds to be put into a State registry and denied the right to have guns, until they are deemed o.k. and no longer need the drugs.

And that will keep them from having access to guns?

That's a "solution"?

Yep. Almost all mass-shootings involved people taking these drugs. It's a bigger problem, not just guns, but our desire to keep our kids medicated on these drugs because we have generally failed as parents.

It's a societal problem really. Couple drugs with a lack of morality and responsibility, and BINGO, kids shooting people for stupid reasons.

It's culture-rot.

Lanza got the guns from his mother.

How would him being on a registry have prevented him from getting his hands on them?
