Marco Rubio said that what the President did would not stop Sandy Hook. How does he know?

If certain types of firearms are less available and some folks cannot obtain guns then that creates a 'less' chance of murders happening. Rubio is mathematically challenged. If there is a massacre of 50 people and a regulation prevents one death or injury it is worth it. The status quo is what is killing people. Doing nothing is not the answer. What the President has done is a start. There will be more murders today in the USA. The next mass killing will be a definite nail in the coffin of the loons running the NRA and Gun Owners of America. Maybe they should join Glenn Beck in his Libertarian Utopia land.

1. How many kids could he have mowed down if he had a revolver?

9. You mean, a standard revolver.

Apparently, even revolvers can have high capacity clips. (Go ahead, gun fans, correct me if I used the wrong terminology.)

2. Ignore Rubio

Ignore everything that comes out of Marco Rubio's mouth. He never knows what the hell he is talking about?

4. Let me see -

banning assault rifles and magazines would not have stopped that slaughter?

He's dumber than a rock

8. Clearly not, since Connecticut does already, and the rifle was legal

Banning semi-automatics might.

10. A state ban doesn't stop you from driving into another state and buying a banned gun there.

A Federal ban is what is needed.

12. His rifle was legal under the former Federal ban, as well as the current state ban

And his mother legally purchased it in Connecticut.

If Feinstein's proposed ban passed, it would have to be modified to have a differently-shaped grip. What does that help exactly?

13. It would have still left handguns

have you forgotten Va Tech?

An AWB is security theater - the weapon of choice for mass killer has always been handguns.

5. That photo is hauntingly iconic and will go down in the history books.

As for Rubio, what he doesn't understand is that WE KNOW we will never eradicate all gun violence, we want to LESSEN gun violence. Even if it saved one more child in that classroom. And these morons call themselves "pro-life".

6. I don't know of anyone

who wants to ban all guns - what we are asking for is a commonsensical review and action - but that is so severely lacking within the ranks of the right and the NRA.

16. Exactly. At least he wants his potential voters to think that.

And welcome to DU, Dpm12!
