Or didn't think they needed them.


THIS case isn't about a failure of mental health services. This family had PLENTY of resources to ensure this particular tragedy isn't about mental health issues.

its about a slaughter. With guns.

123. NICS checks wouldn't have prevented Lanza's "responsible gun owner" mother from buying these guns.

Would have had absolutely no preventative effect on this situation.

And given that they are now saying he used the rifle to kill the children, the handgun ban would also have done nothing to keep those 20 babies alive.

What else you got?

That's because he also had access to all of his "responsible gun owner" mother's guns.

Shame on them for having so many guns, but give them a pass for not seeing someone in the family had a serious problem and should have addressed it?

We need to have a serious discussion about the stigma still attached to mental illness and the willingness to stick heads in the sand until it's too late. All the money in the world means shit if you don't use the resources.

87. I'm not absolving the family for having so many guns....

....in a house with a person who needed serious, serious help. That was a double whammy. But taking all the guns away won't stop all violence unless we address these issues.

I had a two former teachers of mine attacked in their home by their own son who had mental issues. He stabbed them. One was killed, the other barely survived and was able to call 911. The fact he didn't have a gun available to him was a positive....but it did not stop violence from happening.

120. That isn't what the poster is saying. The argument the gun nuts always use is that if only we would

provide access to sufficient mental health services, these things wouldn't happen.

That simply isn't the case.

This man was from a very wealthy family. Whatever help an overhauled mental health system could provide, that help was already available to Lanza. He had access to all the mental health services he could use.

Yet still, all those children are dead.

So access to mental health services is, as we see here, not sufficient to prevent these slaughters.

What we know from looking at other countries and from areas that have local gun control laws is that gun control DOES prevent or at least vastly diminish these slaughters.

The mental health argument is a canard. Of course we need to provide better mental health services. But that's not the answer here.

I am not asking about how his mother may have been able to prevent it (although he could have just stolen the guns from another source), I am asking what gun control laws, outside a total ban and confiscation of ALL guns, would have prevented this from happening?

145. How about mandatory secure storage of firearms in homes, with random checks and stiff fines for

non-compliance? That would require licensing of guns and lists of gun-owners. How about that?

How about he can't have that Bushmaster automatic rifle with a high capacity magazine? That's the gun that he killed all the kids with. Why the hell is that a legal gun?

How about stiff restrictions and limitations on who can own handguns? How about a buyback program for handguns? How about incremental taxes for additional guns in the house? How many guns does the average homeowner need?

How about no gun purchases at gun shows? How about we close that loophole that lets Columbian drug lords and gang members stockpile arsenals?

51. You keep using that analogy.

But it really doesn't make the point you think it makes. It lacks validity in that most Americans cannot manage their lives without a car. You COULD survive quite well without your guns. Cars have multiple uses. Guns are really made for one thing...killing stuff. The fact that you like playing with your killing apparatus does not mean that it was designed for something other than killing.

And that particular analogy tends to make you look stupid. I would avoid it in the future.

Because that "do you feel guilty every time a drunk driver kills someone" argument is every bit as moronic as the "spoons don't cause obesity and guns don't cause deaths" argument.

The size of the bullets he has in his stock are incredibly small. They are usually sold loose in bulk boxes.

To give you an idea, look at the one on the far right next to the nickel, that is the .22 he is speaking about.

Taxing ammo at $1.00 a shot?

Furthermore, what the fuck kind of response do you think you are going to get with an OP like that in light of recent events? Applause?

Different guitars are needed to play different styles of music. I suppose different guns are used for shooting different styles of life. Is that right?

I've read that people who own guns are more likely to be killed by their own weapon than to save their own life. Do you think you are 13 times more likely to be killed by one of your own guns?

...but you are basically right. Serious shoots admire the mechanical aspects of different varieties, appreciate the craftsmanship, and use different guns for different kinds of shooting. A majority of mine shoot the underpowered .22 rimfire because it is cheap, a challenge to shoot accurately at 100 yards, and because paper targets won't kill me if I miss.

I'm not going to get rid of them just because someone thinks I might be a gun nut for having more than 2. I'm no gun nut and I don't believe the number of guns someone owns necessarily makes them a gun nut. I'm firmly on the side of gun control. I have my g-g-grandfather's civil war officer's sword also which I don't use for hunting. I don't think I'll be getting rid of that anytime soon either.

People are grieving that twenty six- and seven-year olds were slaughtered, and he's like "I just counted my guns, tra la la...my hunting guns are MUCH more powerful tra la la...watch me list some details about MY GUNS tra la."

What a senseless fuckwit. This is precisely why many of us are done speaking with these people, and why we call then NUTS. A score of children lay dead, shot multiple times with a fucking out-and-out murder machine, and this guy is bragging about his firepower, and that's his effort at dialogue!! That's his great attempt to get us to talk to each other, a chest-pumping strut fest about his baker's-dozen of weapons! That he is emotionally deficient is clear enough. That we need to simply defeat these people at the polls and stop coddling their STUPIDITY is obvious to anyone with a lick of sense. Fuck backwoodsbob and everyone like him. The time for discussion is over. The time for simply building coalitions and forcing the public will on these recalcitrant assholes is long since passed.

and your point is specious, more or less like the ignorant tripe we get from rush limpbaugh and the rest.

Are you mentally ill? on meds? are you a white male in your 20's or 30's? are you socially isolated, few or no friends, no social life or family support structure?

if the answer is no to most or all of the above, you don't fit the obvious profile of several of the recent rampage killers in our nation. I'm not concerned about you, or other hunters/collectors I know who own several guns and lots of ammo.

I AM worried about the guys who do fit the above profile, and who are allowed to run amok among us. it's a stupid and weak approach, and I wonder how many more little kids have to be slaughtered before the NRA bought and sold deadbeats in congress wake up and do something about it.
