I'm not calling out anyone on tBB with this comment, just FYI, but I find it interesting how some people support sending aid to people in other countries (which I fully support, by the way) and yet call doing the same for some people in our own country "socialist" or "liberal" or what have you. Weird double standard IMO.
I can't speak for other people but I completely disagree with sending support to people in other countries, unless it's a natural disaster.
We have far to many problems with our own people to be giving shit away while stepping over homeless and starving people in our own country. There is a statistic that one in four children are growing up hungry right here in our borders.
No such thing as an assault rifle. Assault is an action which can be performed with anything from sticks
and stones to nukes. They are all useless without an idiot behind them. If this guy had used a couple of
pipe bombs and possibly killed more people how could we ban those? If he had used a single shot gun
and only killed 5 kids would it have been any less tragic? And would we then ban single shot guns. Point
is they will always have ways to kill regardless how many freedoms you would want the goverment to
take from law abiding citizens.
Why are we arguing about gun control and not getting individuals with mental/Social disabilities the proper help...
Personally I think that gun control is the easiest way to ease people's minds honestly. It won't do a bit of damn good but a lot of people will sleep better at night until the next incident happens and then they will want another extreme but easy "fix".
I agree with you about the mental/social disabilities argument. I could be completely wrong and this is a complete guess and hope that it is taken that way. I think why mental/social disabilities aren't blamed more because it's a MUCH harder solution to fix in most people's eyes. First of all it's tough to diagnose because a lot of people are so afraid that things like this will be discovered about them that they have spent their whole lives perfecting ways to conceal them until it blows up.
Secondly, a lot of people don't have the money to send people to others with the capacity and professional ability to diagnose problems like those in the first place. I promise that you won't see the government stepping up and offering aid to provide research and funds to send patients with problems such as these to get help.

It's just dirt bag politicians using this tragic situation as a platform to push their propaganda down our throats..
I completely disagree. We need to quit sending loads of money to these countries
I expected to find a Bama somewhere in this gibberish!
May be gibberish to you but i can promise you that if someone breaks into your home and threatens you
and your loving family you will wish you had as many bullets as you needed to protect them. I know if
they come into mine they will leave feet first because i will not be shooting a sling shot.
Our problems are comparatively minor. The United States and Western Europe in 2012 has the highest standard of living and the most freedom of any civilization in the history of mankind and it isn't even close. We should never lose sight of that.

Mike Huckabee first among them
Yep. FBI said so.
But the damn Coroner said it had to be a long rifle. Really??? Had to be? BS.
I believe the initial reports before they stomped all over it. 2 handguns. They pulled the assault rifle from the car.

If you can't take them out with a 45 or a shotgun, then perhaps you don't need a gun? The sad thing is that it is much more likely that a family member will use that gun to commit suicide or a child will accidentally shot himself with the gun. The odds that you will use that gun to kill a burglar are lower.
I am sure i could take them out with a 45. But i dont have one or an AR. What i do have is a 12 gauge, 2
ruger sr40's that hold the same combined as an AR, a ruger mini14 ranch rifle with 5 20 round clips, a
410 that belongs to my son, ruger 10/22 with 5 ten round clips,and a taurus 45/410 judge revolver. My wife,
son and I go often to shoot and learn safe firearm handling. As for odds, well you have much higher odds
losing a child or family member in a car crash but i bet you still drive them around.
I think a ban on assault rifles is coming and long overdue. You and your stockpile will be fine. Don't count on being able to replace that ruger though. It should be banned. Those guns will net someone pennies on the dollar when they are stolen and fenced.
Yea well if all the crying liberals get their way obuma and the UN will try and take all we have. I bet many
will be happy when that day comes so only the criminals can kill. Ohhhh wait thats what happens now.
The stupidity of liberal hacks is unreal. Like being shot dead by 30bullets is somehow worse than being
killed by one. From the sound of your comments you're not much of a hunter. Are you one of those
anti gun advocates that has a GUN FREE ZONE sign in your front lawn.
The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting. Also if you've ever lived through a hurricane with no power and no police for weeks. With mobs of people looting homes you would appreciate a high cap magazine to protect your family.
Yes because the original assault weapons ban did so much to stop violence and school shootings. If you anti gun weirdos are going to make an argument at least don't be a dumbass.
I'm glad you brought that up. If you were referring to my post I didn't say our government should send aid. I'm a Republican and believe in personal responsibility. I meant you go help. Not our government. The money you spend for this site could save a bunch of kids lives every year. Its your choice what you do.

Video games dont cause mass shootings
I am not an anti-gun nut. The NRA is important because most of the pro-gun advocates have difficulty forming complete thoughts. Take this idiot for example...
So why do courthouses have armed guards then if its such a bad idea? I think if someone besides the NRA proposed it you and most of the other lefties would be all for it.
But most of them are unemployed or useless or still living with mom past the age of 20, so really, just ban that stuff
I agree that we need to stop spending so much money on these endeavors (need to stop spending so much period) but I hope we can at least keep providing some aid.
