As Twitchy reported, ghoulish lefties immediately jumped on the opportunity to politicize this morning’s tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, that left nearly 30 people dead, most of whom were children. Now, right on cue, ignorant liberal celebrity vultures are swooping in to turn the tragedy into a gun control soapbox:

      Exactly! If he didn’t have guns, he could have made a homemade explosive and taken out the entire school. He could have procured an RPG (it could happen!). Gotten a crate load of grenades. He could have made homemade projectiles. Violence and evil will always find a way.

        So, because children died by bullets, we should ban guns. Stabbing kids with knives is ok with you? You need to realize that IT DOESN’T MATTER! Evil people committed evil acts with different weapons. Whether or not they died is irrelevant. My heart goes out to EVERYONE!

        • Exolon

          “Stabbing kids with knives is ok with you?”

          That’s dishonest of you. Of course it’s not ok. You’re purposely missing the point that it’s _hard_ to commit mass murder with a knife, but incredibly easy to commit mass murder with assault weapons.

          On the other hand, knives are useful for things other than mass murder… not so much with assault weapons. And before you jump to say “IF the teachers all had guns, there would be no tragedy”, you don’t know that.
          We don’t know anything, other than that this guy had easy access to assault weapons which are designed solely to kill large numbers of people, and that’s precisely what he did.

          • http://www.facebook.com/ken.broom.1232 Ken Broom

            Bombs, poison or any number of things can be used by someone that is mentally warped. It is not controllable when evil has taken hold of someone mind and body. Just look at Chicago and New York, They have the strictest laws in the country and they have to most deaths by shooting. As far as MR. Modine.. the gun is NOT responsible unless it is in the hands of and irresponsible individual.

          • Exolon

            Ken, you’re right of course. But I’d suggest that poison and even bombs are more difficult to obtain or synthesise and use “successfully”, compared to assault weaponry. I’ve heard that the shooter used illegally obtained weapons, but even this would have been more difficult if other states had tighter controls.
            In any case, I’d also argue that bombs and poisons also need to be carefully controlled, if they are not already.

            As for the purported ineffectiveness of strict gun controls in Chicago and New York, I should remind you that correlation does not imply causation. They might have introduced strict gun laws because of their ALREADY very high rates of death by shooting.
            Are you suggesting that gun crime in New York and Chicago has _increased_ since the introduction of those laws, or it’s stayed static or decreased?

          • http://www.facebook.com/ken.broom.1232 Ken Broom

            I disagree with your statement that bombs and poison are hard to obtain. You can purchase the necessary items to construct a bomb. (Oklahoma City) or add poison to drinking water very easily, but the issue at hand is that controlling guns will not stop a lunatic from carrying out his deranged goals no matter what LAW is imposed on them. Law’s are for law abiding citizens that are conscious of their actions.

          • Exolon

            Fair point about the ease of constructing home-made explosives and poisons.
            However, in general, they seem to have a lower lethality than the gun attacks in recent years, precisely because guns are designed to kill, built to an incredibly high standard and are easy to obtain. Also, poisons and explosives are generally indiscriminate and unpredictable, whereas guns allow even the least skilled person to murder a large number of people just by pointing and pulling the trigger a few times.

            “but the issue at hand is that controlling guns will not stop a lunatic
            from carrying out his deranged goals no matter what LAW is imposed on
            them. Law’s are for law abiding citizens that are conscious of their
            actions.”

            I think people are missing an important point here: the point of these laws is not so much to force people like the shooter to behave in a safer way – as you say, of course a lunatic will simply ignore all laws.

            But if (most of) the people who _sell_ guns are law abiding citizens, then they will follow more stringent procedures if they become law.

            Similarly, if someone is caught with a weapon when they shouldn’t have it, it can be taken away from them. Imagine how the cops must feel when they see someone with a legally-held gun who they know is a gang member or other violent criminal? Imagine how people on the street feel when surrounded by strangers with guns?

            A few people have said things like “why don’t we just make murder illegal then? Oh wait, it already is…” to imply that gun control laws are pointless.
            I’m not talking about that; I’m talking about making the whole process of obtaining and carrying a gun more controlled and maybe reduce the number of firearms out there and make it slightly harder for psychopaths to get their hands on them. Even just a little bit.

          • Zanshi

            My point has always been that IT DOESN’T MATTER. Evil is evil. I wasn’t trying to make a point otherwise. That’s not dishonest. There’s NO justification to pull a weapon on anyone for *any* reason other than war and self defense. Simply banning one weapon because it’s easier to obtain or harder to commit mass murder is as intellectually DISHONEST argument to make as anything I’ve seen/heard, and I think a very sick one.
            I’m tired of the “moral equivalence” card being played in these situations. Banning guns will not solve the problem, only create new ones. THAT’S my point. Criminals will always find a way to get guns, regardless of the law. Making it harder doesn’t stop them.
            You’re right; we don’t know if giving the teachers guns would have stopped this sicko, but that’s not the argument.

          • Exolon

            “Criminals will always find a way to get guns, regardless of the law. Making it harder doesn’t stop them.”

            I’m not sure if anyone is suggesting that making it harder to get guns will completely _stop_ criminals having guns.

            It WILL, however, REDUCE the number of guns in the hands of the “career” criminals, the casual psychopaths who just happen to have a gun in their glovebox during an argument and the dangerously unhinged lunatics who cause these tragedies.

            I’m not sure what the “moral equivalence card” you speak of is, could you elaborate on that?

            Also, you said that you think that banning one weapon because it’s easy to obtain and easy to commit mass murder with is an intellectually dishonest and “very sick” argument – could you explain why you think that? I don’t see why it is dishonest or “sick”.

            Sure, there are logistical problems others have pointed out – you can’t just snap your fingers and make every gun vanish, and many people are worried about being unarmed while “bad guys” continue to carry illegal weapons.

            However, at the end of the day, guns are practically unique in that you can pull one and extinguish someone’s life in the blink of an eye, just because you were angry. Almost no other tool you can obtain is so effortlessly dangerous – effortless, efficient killing is exactly what guns are intended for.

          • KhadijahMuhammad

            Bingo. Ban guns, and you still have evil people, just without guns.

            America, ask yourself why we went decades with access to these weapons without biweekly incidents. Then ask the HARD question: what are we doing wrong in society that makes these bad actors feel authorized to act out.

            Maybe Hollywood and the media are part of the problem. Wait! We KNOW they are part of the problem, because there have been multiple peer reviewed studies, ignored by the Luddites of the Left, showing that media violence contributes to social violence.

            Fix your part first, Hollywood. You’re pimps for violence.

          • 1CatEye

            Apparently it ISN’T hard to commit mass murder with a knife. Do you think the victims care what weapon is used? Problem is the shooter, not the weapon.

        by the grace of God. not because it was “only” a knife. knife wounds have been known to be fatal. i know craaaazy, huh? but let’s talk about what both tragedies have in common… sick individuals bent on hurting children. let’s talk about the fact that we as a human race have decided to hate each other to the point where somewhere right now, someone is planning to do this again. banning guns doesn’t stop the plotting nor does it stop the acquisition by those who intend to use them for evil. i love the simplicity of your view of life but can’t see the practicality of it.

        • Exolon

          “banning guns doesn’t stop the plotting nor does it stop the acquisition by those who intend to use them for evil.”

          No, it doesn’t stop them _all_. But it reduces the number of guns and makes the process of plotting and acquiring them more difficult and risky.

          Wouldn’t that be good?

          • orringtonmom (D)

            less death does sound great. you know what else happened yesterday? hundreds of babies were killed in the womb. preventable if abortion was banned. shall we?

            banning guns won’t work. it won’t. moreover, you cannot take away every citizen’s right to protect themselves. you can’t. because they will do it anyway. all you’ll do is make them criminals for doing so. and that is totally messed up.

            it is a typical reaction… “ban this, sue that”, isn’t it? how are you going to ban evil? how are you going to sue the demons in mankind’s heart? we find this horrifying (and I do) and yet glorify the same violence in movies and tv? we don’t even talk about abortion in terms of “rare” anymore, but rather the most important issue women should be voting for in elections?? we don’t value life. we don’t care for the mentally ill. and we try to put band aids on big problems and perform surgery on small ones.

          • KhadijahMuhammad

            Lots of things are “good”. Not all are desirable, when the larger picture is considered.

            The existence of firearms in the populace has a very important purpose — to force the government to RESPECT the populace. No question that in a civil insurrection, the government outguns the citizens — but it wouldn’t be clean or easy, in comparison to a sheeple society where guns are banned.

            Then, you have the *other* issue which is very much front and center on people’s minds here. Half of America (roughly) believes that abortion is just as much MURDER as the kids in that elementary school, and doesn’t see the anti-gun element as having the moral authority to determine that it is right to ban guns, since at the same time, they hold the hypocritical position that abortion on demand is acceptable.

            It’s a little more complicated than “fewer guns, fewer deaths”, isn’t it?

    To listen to these Progressive idiots, you would think there was no murder before the invention of the gun. It’s not the gun that kills, it is the human pulling the trigger. If they didn’t have a gun, the monsters would use other weapons, like a bomb set in the school to kill all the children, or like in Colorado this morning covering victims with gas and setting them on fire. We need to start holding people accountable for their own actions and stop blaming the weapon.

        If only we would pass laws prohibiting the possession of firearms at schools, then tragedies like this would not happen…oh wait…

      • Exolon

        Did I miss the memo where somebody suggested that “all guns in the country would immediately disappear”? What you present is called a “false dilemma”: either you can remove all guns from everybody, instantly, or you do absolutely nothing. This of course justifies your true position which is “do absolutely nothing”.

        If gun controls were improved, of course it wouldn’t make _all guns_ disappear. It would also result in some “outlaws” still having guns while decent, innocent people become unarmed. However, ultimately, there would still be _LESS GUNS_ floating about the place, and that would be a good thing.

        It’s not gangsters and outlaws that are causing these tragedies. It’s apparently normal people, who walk into a shop and pick up automatic heavy weapons more easily than getting a car, even though guns are designed solely to kill and cars are not. Does that make any sense?

        • kate_middleton

          First of all, my true position isn’t “do absolutely nothing.” I am fine with increasing background checks, waiting periods, etc.
          You said it’s apparently “normal people” doing this. In one sense, you’re right. These people may seem normal on the outside – but they always turn out to have mental health issues – paranoia, schizophrenia, bipolar, etc. In my opinion, this is the real problem. I’m not sure what the solution is though – because you can’t diagnose someone by looking at them, and there’s no way an undiagnosed person with mental issues (even if everyone knows it) would have anything show up in a background check. There needs to be a better solution here – just not sure what it is.
          Next, you said people can buy “automatic heavy weapons.” This guy didn’t use any automatic weapons – he used two 9mm handguns. He had a semi-automatic rifle but apparently that was left in his car. 9mm handguns are very common and owned by many law-abiding people.
          And, if you read some of those celeb tweets – they are saying exactly that all guns should be gone. Ben Stiller said “we have to stop access to guns in this country”. But even if zero guns are sold, people who are determined to kill will still find a way, sadly. Also, Bob Beckel last week on The Five said that guns could be eradicated, like polio was eradicated. Crazy-talk.
          I half-wish that liberals would get their wish and no guns would be sold for a while. Then they’d see that doesn’t solve the real problem – the real problem is mental health. Hopefully there’s something on that end that can be done to lessen crimes like this….but given human nature, they’ll never go totally away.

          • Exolon

            You make some good points, Kate, and I’m glad to hear that you are in favour of at least some rational tightening of gun controls.
            I agree that mental health is a serious causal factor in these massacres – several people have cited incidents in countries with relatively strict gun controls (England has seen several in the last few years), and I also don’t know what the solution to that is.
            Whatever we do to try to help, there will always be a small handful of psychopaths who will explode and harm innocent people.

            That said, I think it’d be a mistake to take the most extreme “celeb tweets” and use them to classify people as either “gun nuts” or “leftist liberals”. Just look at the very title of this article: “disgusting lefty celebs” and ask yourself whether it’s a helpful and constructive way to talk about the issue (I’m not suggesting that you approve of this kind of ad hominem “us against them” thinking).

            For sure, this kind of crime will never go away, but some attempts might be stifled or abandoned if it was just a little harder to obtain guns.

          • kate_middleton

            I’m impressed by your honesty.
            Mental health is definitely the root cause. But, like you, I don’t know how to fix that. Hopefully there’s something that can be done, but it will never stop everyone.
            I just think a lot of these “celebs” and some naive people on the left (not you) think that it’s really possible to get rid of all guns, and thus we’d live in a wonderful utopia. As you know, it doesn’t work like that. Anyone who is intelligent and honest will admit that. And comparing guns to polio? As if we can just create a vaccine to make a tangible object disappear. That’s just a waste of time to discuss since it’s not possible.

    The reason we have so many issue with gun crimes are not the guns themselves. What we have a is a degradation of common sense and decency and the devaluation of human life. Movies and violent games are not the problem either. What we have are weak minded people and people that have serious emotional and mental problems, who have no sense of right and wrong. These crimes do not represent a majority of law-abiding citizens that own firearms without incident. I have watched plenty of violent movies and I have played my fair share of first person shooter but that does not mean I am going to go out and do that IRL.

    Can’t you at least let the bodies get cold?? But as a reminder, since you brought it up, the shooter in the Portland mall had a stolen gun. Things that are illegal are ALWAYS available if you have no respect for the law, and someone who shoots 18 five year olds obviously doesn’t care much about laws. Also, Hollywood has been glorifying school shootings every since Columbine and you don’t have a problem with that? I just watched a movie called “We Need To Talk About Kevin” in which the kid goes on a killing rampage at school with a bow and arrows, and guess what? A few weeks later, someone went on a school killing rampage with a bow and arrows! Do you feel any responsibility for that? No? Well, talk to me about my views on guns when you clear that up for me.

    You’re the one politicizing the issue, sir. The people you list above are expressing their opinions. You don’t like their opinions, so you try to paint them as exploiting tragedy to push their agenda, which is of course a shameless attempt at reversal.

      “try to paint them as exploiting tragedy to push their agenda”

      No one has to try and paint anything, they are exploiting a tragedy to push their agenda. Those tweets appeared before anyone knew anything about what had happened, but who needs facts when you have a political agenda to advance?

    So far this Friday in China a man used a blade to slice up 22 kids, in Denver someone lit a group of people on fire, in Conn. a gunman killed at least 25 adults and children. Get with it people, find out why people are choosing to be violent, not what weapon they choose to use. If prescription drugs are causing people to be violent then figure out which drugs, because whether or not the weapon is banned the drugs will still be creating violent people. How many weapons have to be banned before people focus on the true cause of violent behavior?

    any collection of defenseless people whether in a classroom or theater are sitting ducks for a demented person to prey upon. the answer is not to try to remove all weapons and items which can be used to kill people (which is a very large list) from every person in the country, an impossible, insane and fascist idea. the answer is to protect those innocent people, to defend those people, to have people WITH guns to defend schools etc. Laws and police do not protect anyone from this type of action. The problem is large groups of defenseless people faling prey to maniacs, the solution is not to create even greater numbers of defenseless people. stupid.

    People want to turn to the UK who has a ban on guns and move us in that direction. Even if you take all the guns off the street gun crimes are still going to occur because a criminal will find a way to get one regardless. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_the_United_Kingdom

    In the year Apr 2010 to Mar 2011 there were 11,227 recorded offenses involving firearms, broken down as follows.

    By weapon type:
    Long-barrelled shotgun = 406
    Sawn-off shotgun = 202
    Handgun = 3,105
    Rifle = 74
    Imitation firearm = 1,610
    Unidentified firearm = 957
    Other firearm = 670
    Air weapons = 4,203

    By crime type:

    Violence against the person:
    Homicide = 60
    Attempted murder/GBH with intent = 757
    Other = 3,317 (1,212 of which involved imitations)
    Robbery = 2,965
    Burglary = 151
    Criminal damage = 3,287 (2,916 of which involved air weapons)
    Other = 690[68]

    So as I said people like to react emotionally at a time like this and make rash decisions, but you need to look are the statistics. Banning guns does not eliminate gun crime it limits the law-abiding citizens ability to protect themselves.

    The worst thing about this is that no one is looking at the problem in any vast and meticulous way. It’s just anti-intellectual “get rid of guns”. What happens when that doesn’t work? It’s irresponsible not to really think about the problem because while they may think they are helping, they are more than likely covering up the real problems by going on and on about gun control. It’s just a cop-out. No one wants to actually change society from the outside in any relational way. it’s just laziness to tweet “ban guns” and go about a normal life, in fear of confronting yourself and your environment. I think that is very pathetic and delusional. The ironic thing is they think they are being courageous and moral.

    Gerry Duggan writes “Deadpool” for Marvel Comics (owned by Disney). Deadpool is a mentally ill mutant ‘hero’ (and I use that term lightly) that uses guns to kill a lot of people.

    Mr. Duggan is a perfect lib to talk about Gun Control. He should start by quitting Marvel and stop writing comic characters that use guns.

    And after insulting me twice (and defending himself being a hypocrite) he blocked me. No great loss.

    This is not shocking to see these reactions from the left. What did people expect?

    these are the SAME PEOPLE that push for ABORTION at every turn, kill millions of babies and say we have a right to do that. While supporting a president who says hey if a Kid survives we let it die, alone, no medical help. Now they are all saying things about controlling guns when little children die. But they promote their death in the first place.

    I am being cynical and i apologize for that, but it is the way I see it, and yet How many go and support these same people when they act in a movie, write a new song, play an actress/actor in a soap opera.

    These same people have armed body guards with them at all times.

    Video Games, Movies, Reality TV, Television, all show violence, death, shootings, blood, murder, killing of police, and the list goes on and on.

    These same people are calling out about the tragedy to control Guns, but NONE OF THEM SAID ANYTHING ABOUT OBAMA RUNNING GUNS AND IT ENDED UP KILLING BRIAN TERRY, JAMIE ZAPOTA and hundreds of Mexicans. NONE OF THEM ARE MARCHING IN THE STREETS OF CHICAGO, with the strictest GUN BAN and HUNDREDS DIE IN A WEEK. NONE OF THEM ARE ALSO TALKING ABOUT THE MASSIVE GUN CONTROL LAWS IN THE VERY BLUE STATE OF CONNECTICUT.

      You do realize that you’re visiting a site where most visitors are of Michelle Malkin’s slant. People who are not likely to be impressed with or influenced by someone like yourself. Beyond your “Man Boobs,” there is your preoccupation with yourself – to the extent of self-identifying yourself on the basis of your “bear” appearance. Finally, there the question of how an underemployed realtor and actor* comes to see himself as “one in a million, and better than most.” What would Freud make of you?

    Is it true the guns belonged to the shooter’s MOTHER? the one who got murdered? If so WHY did she keep weapons unsecured in a home with a son she KNEW had mental , most likely antisocial Asberger’s problems??

    • MoxieLouise

      I’m wondering if she thought she needed to protect herself from him…still doesn’t explain why they were all unsecured. I heard the oldest son never had a photo of his family or talked about them all through college; if they were all that way, maybe that explains why they never asked for help when they should have. Loners? Guess we’ll never know.

    In the 20th Century:
    Governments murdered four times as many civilians as were killed in all the international and domestic wars combined.

    Governments murdered millions more people than were killed by common criminals.

    How could governments kill so many people? The
    governments had the power – and the people, the victims, were unable to
    resist. The victims were unarmed.

    Truth They Cannot Refute

    Death by Gun Control ..
    gut wrenching — truth that the anti-self defense “gun control”
    advocates never try to refute. They simply cannot refute the facts or
    the formula.

    [b]Here’s the Formula: Hatred + Government + Disarmed Civilians = Genocide [/b]

    1.unarmed defenseless people have no hope against
    armed aggressors.

    2. historical truth: evil
    governments did wipe out 170,000,000 innocent non-military lives in the
    20th Century alone.
    ………………….
    take down the enemies of the Bill of Rights. The rights-destroyers have
    no answers to these facts. They have no excuses for their killer ideas.

    ..John R. Bolton, an
    under-Secretary of State for the United States, this year urged the
    United Nations to recognize how an “oppressed non-state group defending
    itself from a genocidal government” will need ready access to firearms.
    Mr. Bolton might have been the first U.S. official in modern history to
    have argued to the UN that private citizens might need to be armed
    against their own killer governments.

    the idiocy of these leftist celebrities never fails to amaze me.they’re so concerned with guns and how they should be banned.but don’t they realize there’s another ”gun”in which they’re holding that sane Americans need protection from?THEM!!THEM AND THEIR RADICAL LEFT-WING policies they are using to completely ”transform”the United States of America.they want a secular,GODLESS,anything-goes type of country in which the only people who have rights are those on the left.why would any sane,rational-thinking person NOT want to arm themselves from a bunch of crazy lunatics who want to destroy their country?the liberal mafia are one of the reasons we need more guns!but put them in the hands of people who use them to protect themselves from harm.not those who intend to harm other people with them.

  • Julian DH

    How could more “gun control” have saved these children’s lives? These self-proclaimed celebrities seem to think this will solve the problem. Better yet the pandemic problem of violence will suddenly go away. Here are questions for them. Do you support the manufacture of violent motion pictures? Do you support any video game which portrays violence of any kind whatsoever? Do you support the playing of any sport whatsoever which contains, no matter how small amount, violence? Would you support a ban on any of the following? Automobiles, snow skies, knives, forks, bicycles, or any other device or sport which can cause death or harm to any life-form whatsoever? Finally, will you provide every man, woman, and child guaranteed protection from all human predators now living, or living in the future? If so will you pay, from your own pocket, for the protection of same?

    If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions you must be “God.” If on the other hand you do not, then you are hypocrites. Your specious claims about how much safer we would be with more “gun-control” portray your complete ignorance about the world around you. For whatever reason you have failed to examine real world facts, and in so doing would recognize that gun violence is in the decline in this country. You would also realize that those things you are so unwilling to ban cause far more harm then the guns you are so willing to ban.

    Your arrogance, and complete lack of intelligence, or capacity to research the facts show. Please close you mouths, do your research, then make your pronouncements at a later date. Oh, and do not pander to emotions, only an idiot does that because they have not other argument to use.

    Amazing how the left will come out for banning guns, talk about innocent children being killed, but no sympathy for the millions of totally innocent babies lying in their mothers wombs being murdered every year. Makes me sick. If you are for protecting innocent children then stop being pro-choice and be pro-life. The left doesn’t want the death penalty for murderers, thank goodness the gunman killed himself or we would be paying for his lifetime imprisionment. The left will march, protest and riot over the death penalty for murderers then come out cry foul over guns. They get out on TV, march, protest, and riot to keep abortion on demand…we have president who petitioned for infanticide, to kill babies from a botched abortion then will get on TV and pretend to tear up for the innocent children, whom he would have gladly supported their mother’s abortion. When are they going to wake up and stop supporting murder. They will go after guns but not after the murderers that perform abortions legally in this country everyday. The hypocrisy is overwhelming. Murder is murder! Stop lecturing me about owning a gun to defend my home and start lecturing yourself about where your morals are! The leftists in Hollywood are the ones pushing this culture with violence, murder, rape, drugs and everything else that is vile and evil and then take to the airwaves, twitter and facebook to spew their self-serving vile about guns. God help us all, this world is so twisting and evil! Come quickly Lord, please, Lord come quickly!

  • Teresa Davis McCormick

    The school shootings all happen in schools where guns are not allowed. Which proves the point the NRA has been saying for years: “Take guns away from everyone and only criminals will have them.” And while we are talking about schools, since this seems to be such a big issue with the stupid actors in Hollywood, why don’t they do a benefit so all schools across the Nation can be equipped with metal detectors and an armed officer. Surely they can afford it. Ask people in England how the gun ban is working for them.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      Why doesn’t the NRA pay for them. Put their money where their mouth is. They have money to pay lobbyists millions of dollars. Why doesn’t the NRA prove that guns would stop this violence by paying for armed guards. That would quell all of this talk. But they don’t. They don’t really care.

      • Teresa Davis McCormick

        wow powerful point you made there. Why doesn’t the NRA do that? But I bet if they tried to help they would start by educating teachers and encouraging gun safety training classes and ask the teachers to arm themselves. Oh wait, The schools would never let the NRA help……ever!! haven’t you heard? Conservative Christians who are protecting our Constitution aren’t allowed in schools. The public schools have been in decline since the 70’s. The money some schools get per kid per year is staggering. New Jersey gets like 20,000 bucks per kid? You could send your kid to a top notch Catholic School for that much. My question is why aren’t the schools contacting the NRA themselves for ideas on how to protect the public school children from maniacs. Why doesn’t the schools learn from this and start taking measures. Everyone who has studied the correlation between gun bans and crime, know that gun control does not lessen gun crimes. Stop trying to take guns away from everyone. Instead make sure someone is ready to return fire before a maniac kills people.

    Alright.How about they all show good faith and demand their personal body guards and the guards of the buildings/estates/gated communities they live in to disarm first?They are not politicians or CEOs of major companies,so they don’t need a small army armed with Glocks and SIGs to protect them.So come one,show the faith,and order your body guards to disarm and protect you with just their hands.
    Oh,and because of that,I think we should also regulate farming supplies.Remember,Timothy McVeigh was able to use basic farming supplies to kill 168 innocent people.Mind you,he did have training,but still.And also,let’s ban all the chemicals mentioned in the “Anarchist Cookbook.”Yes,these are household supplies and everyone uses safely,but still.It’s for public safety.
