As opposed to rabidly promoting the status quo that directly results in 1000 gun murders a month

Somehow I doubt the victims or their families feel that supporting the status quo expresses much compassion for them.

TGT asked
Why is it that a city with gun laws so strict that you literally can't see one in a museum

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20130508/downtown/ban-on-displaying-guns-at-city-museums-should-be-lifted-ald-burke-says

has one of the highest murder rates in the country?



It's almost as if the city doesn't exist in a perfect bubble where banning guns stops them from being bought elsewhere and then brought into that city.

More like the overabundance of a violent gang and criminal based culture.

Terrorists Open Fire With Assault Rifles In London; Dozens Murdered

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/23/world/europe/london-attacks.html


In an attack that raised new fears of terrorism in Britain, a man walking near a military barracks in south London on Wednesday was rammed by a car and then hacked to death by two knife-wielding assailants, according to witness accounts carried by British news media.

The two suspects were shot and wounded by the police, officials said, and were in a hospital under police guard, one in serious condition. One of the men shouted “Allahu akbar,” or “God is great,” as the attack proceeded, government officials said.

Mr. Cameron, at a news conference at the Élysée Palace in Paris, said the killing was “an appalling murder” and “absolutely sickening.”

The two suspects were shot and wounded by the police,

You left out the part that they had a pistol (I thought they were like snakes in Ireland in Britain?) as well as a cleaver, an arsenal of knives and were on a rampage for 20 minutes, because the cops had to wait for someone to show up with a gun.

The picture is of a Russian made semi-automatic Saiga chambered in 7.62x39mm.
This is not an 'assault weapon' according to the BATFE.
It's ok that you are ignorant Norton. Nothing to be ashamed of.


Actually, this weapon would more likely be used on criminals such as Lanza, as many East Coast law enforcement agencies are currently purchasing these weapons.

I just have four handguns and a CCL, so far from being as knowledgable as you

They killed ONE person, injured nobody else, and neither did the cops, because those weapons-carrying cops are properly trained.
More than likely the "handguns" were replicas, or at the very least limited in ammo, because they couldn't just walk in to buy bullets in Wal-mart.

"You left out the part that they had a pistol...and were on a rampage for 20 minutes"


Which, for some reason, they never used.

And your lie about a "20 minute rampage" is as idiotic as it is pathetic - they were calmly talking to people while waiting for the cops to show up. That's not a "rampage", idiot.

The same scenario played out here involves dead people strewn about like leaves.


That being the part you left out.

That's what pepper spray is for, jack-off.

The courts also take a rather dim view of shooting people because you think they're going to sexually assault you.

TGT said:

"We should not base our laws on personal dislikes"

yet, that is exactly what the party you vote for wants

your party, TGT, wants to pass laws doing prohibiting same sex marriage for example

and pass laws forcing women to give birth to the babies of their rapists

just because your party "don't like it"

get it yet?

Terrorist Gun Nuts Attempt To Murder Elected NY Officials

http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/29/us/new-york-bloomberg-ricin/?sr=google_news&google_editors_picks=true


Preliminary tests indicate ricin was found in letters sent this past weekend to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York deputy police commissioner Paul Browne said Wednesday.

Browne said the letters to Bloomberg contained a threat to the mayor and referenced the debate on gun laws.

One letter addressed to the mayor's office was opened at the city government's mail facility, Browne said.

Some of the emergency services workers who touched the letter Friday were examined after they showed minor symptoms of ricin exposure on Saturday, Browne said. The symptoms have since subsided.

If inhaled, injected or ingested, less than a pinpoint of ricin can kill a person within 36 to 48 hours because of the failure of the respiratory and circulatory systems. There is no known antidote for the toxin, which is derived from castor beans.
