1. Not to mention Fort Hood...

And I think it was the Mayor of Los Angeles who remarked that it wasn't a press conference, it was a commercial.

13. The fact that the military doesn't want guns floating freely on their bases

 

Should tell you something important

17. Ft. Hood is a poor example.

Lt. General Cone stated: "As a matter of practice, we do not carry weapons on Fort Hood. This is our home. Military weapons are only used for training or by base security, and personal weapons must be kept locked away by the provost marshal. Specialist Jerry Richard, a soldier working at the Readiness Center, expressed the opinion that this policy had left them unnecessarily vulnerable to violent assaults: "Overseas you are ready for it. But here you can't even defend yourself."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Hood_shooting

The shooter was stopped in his killing spree by two security personnel who shot him five times.

6. I love Michael Moore but disagree with him on this.

Kleebold's mother says he wasn't on any meds. So that leaves one kid maybe on meds. (Don't know what Harris's parents have ever said.) But we know that Kleebold didn't kill those kids because he was on Prozak. So there goes Michael Moore's theory.

4. LaPierre is a nut - that said, the Federal semi-auto ban didn't stop Columbine, either

I do not support turning our schools into armed camps. Some of the already look like prisons enough as it is.

16. The old AWB was like a Swiss Cheese...

Manufacturers could make a couple of largely cosmetic adjustments and go on their merry way.

20. Exactly! We can make the law specific. And expansive

 

If we can include thousands of pages in laws such as Patriot Act and Obamacare. We can invest thousands of pages saying what exactly is outlawed and what people can still own.

24. Treat the same as fully-automatic

Ban the future manufacture, import, and sale of new weapons (other than for military). For weapons already on the market, rigorous background checks. No private sales. No high capacity magazines.

Why do I doubt the "former" part?

9. It's a completely impractical idea thrown out there by

a dangerous lunatic who doesn't know what he's talking about. One armed guard at one entrance would be window dressing - and dangerous window dressing at that. Schools in my area have multiple entrances and are unfenced. Our superintendent noted the other day that it would be impossible to guard against a determined shooter. Not what parents wanted to hear, but what the reality is given the easy availability of these tools of death.

19. These people are absurd and dangerous

 

Then cNN says maybe we should be worried that they come out so strong with their rants.

Sorry Charlie. That is just a stupid and now exposed after the election.

NRA: You are OVER!!!!

23. Wayne is responsible for more deaths than all those killed in the US! He's the main terrorist!!!

Homeland Security should arrest him...throw the keys away and never give him a trial or notify his family. Isn't that what they do to terrorists?
