You mean worse than Benghazi? *gasp*

Better stay on top of this one Ron, lots of dead innocent Americans.

That was too good to not repost. And predictably Ron, you say there's no connection to guns.

WLM get real, guns are a part of the problem....notice the 23 in China were injured, not killed. The availability of so many guns of all types does not cause the strange twists in the brains of sick people but it certainly facilitates their murderous intent.

Ron, you couldn't buy military weapons during the great depression.

Crime is at historic lows...
per capita.

God is very patient...

Some say patient, some say lazy, other say absurd. Either way, if it makes you feel better to involve your imaginary friend, so be it, as long as they don't tell you to start buying guns... but most "god fearing Uhmerikuhns" can't seem to live without a few.

We have released a position summary in response to this incident.

I have provided it here, in entirety, for your convenience:

Although the incident in Connecticut is regrettable, in no way will will it change the NRA position on the rights of gun owners.

We will continue to care more about our toys than about your children.

(Locker... Fathers love their kids just as much. Just Mothers tend to self destruct immediately while Fathers take a little longer. Usually involving alcohol, etc.)

You're implying that Mothers love their children more than fathers

No Locker, I didn't take it that way at all. When children are lost we just revert to out gender role. I just saw a father speak about the sense of hopelessness he had knowing his son was at the school. It was heart breaking, luckily his son was safe. Healthy fathers and mothers both love their children to the end of the earth and then beyond. It might be helpful to check out someone's intent before inaccurate conclusions are jumped to. This is a time when we embrace ALL children...

By the way... My cousin has a machine gun in his living room in Greece. We actually are not allowed to have any military installations close to Turkey as part of a treaty agreement. So... Our government issues weapons to the locals.

No one gets shot on the island. There have not been any mass shootings despite all the economic and political unrest in Greece. What does that say? It obviously points out that gun ownership is not equal to violence.

Something else is happening here and yes... It's extremely ugly.

I'm so glad Ron doesn't have kids.

No one gets shot on the island.

From my limited time on islands, people seem to be pretty chill... maybe the sense of community that comes from being confined to a small chunk of land. But they drive like sh#t.

Plus 1 Bobby D. Where was God during the Holocaust? Even bringing up the kind of crap is a gross injustice to the loved ones of the victims.

"try to remember news coverage isn't healthy for us or our children"

Yea, lets all keep our head in the sand and our children ignorant of whats going on in the world.

Okay, I promise not to talk like I know you... if you promise not to talk like you know about child psychology and how sensationalized news coverage is good for them.

Why is it we never hear about mass knifings? Or someone who stones a crowd of people?

Ken, mass knifing in China mentioned up thread. Note the children were INJURED, not killed like those involved in the gun attack in the US.

Exactly Locker! The intent WAS there but knives aren't nearly as efficient as guns to actualize intent.

Exactly, Jim.

I enjoy shooting now and again (read infrequently), but I'd give up the hobby if doing so helps to prevent this sort of sick and disgusting terrorism.

Thank you for emphasizing the point. It can't be emphasized enough.

Rather, it will be interesting to see as time passes how many clues there were that this guy was nuts. Clues which went ignored.

Ignored because we blew $1.4 trillion on war while cutting nearly 10% of what we spend ($16 million) on mental health care. Ignored because people care more about their right to buy guns than their neighbor's right to proper medical treatment. Ignored because gun toting religitards are too busy fighting a woman's right to abort an unwanted child (a child that may very well develop mental health issues) than fighting for their ALREADY LIVING neighbor's right to proper mental health care.

Plus it's a lot more personal to go up and knife someone.

Latest report is one of his parents was found dead....ok ... Now it will be blame the parents.

Mental illness and easy access to guns is a tragic combination. Both problems need alot more attention. attention usualy equals money and money needs the political will. So call your politicans ask for funding and legislation in both areas. Is there a republican group that is against assault weapons; maybe they could get somewhere against the NRA lobby. I hear most cops are against easily available assault weapons why isn't their voice being heard?
