How many video games did Hitler play? Stalin? Tojo?
When whites were slaughtering American Indians, which video game were they emulating.
When blacks were being lynched, did the (mostly men) who lynched them learn it from playing Xbox or Playstation?
Sorry for the sarcasm, but c'mon. We have a long bloody history behind us, and blaming it on something as new as video games is pushing it.
No. I am right. Also, I see very few articles on Obama.
I read the thread. You are being deliberately obtuse. We’ve established you’re a gun-grabber, we are just trying at this point to plumb the depths of your disease.
I asked you a simple question, and if your reply is a moronic “read the thread,” then I have to assume you think the mother’s guns should have been taken away from her, even though she was sane and had committed no crime. You have accepted the left’s argument in total.
Maybe. Perhaps we should lock he up for life. No, wait....
Maybe people will stop bashing men soon. It makes me sick. That masculine figure is so important in a home. Even though my husband died quite young, he had set a good foundation for our children and they have (mostly) married good men or are great husbands.
Yep, been waiting for some one to bring that up.
Thing is, you would get at least half of the people in this Country to go along with it.
Not all British papers are tabloids. The Times and the Telegraph aren’t. Here is a list of their formats and other info such as political leanings of each paper.
There have been many urban drug addled parents who have let their 2, 3, 5 year old children have access to their guns,
Yes, in the news, they have shot themselves, their siblings or a friend.
I want all Americans to have the right to own guns. I own many. But can we damn a druggie not let one lie on the carpet for their little toddler shoot themselves?
Or cyber school - there are plenty of web resources. Not going to be discussed, because a) the teacher's union won't stand for it and b) many parents rely on the "babysitter" feature of sending them off for the day. Point b) is relevant both for the druggies and other social detritus but also for many career folks who are away at work all day.
No, I am right. I have read it for years. They are center right.
I felt under fire BEFORE Obama. During his second term I feel fear for the Constitution.
The US federal government and its employees.
The mentally ill are already not allowed to have guns. These were not the shooters guns. He stole them.
You are not addressing the cause of this problem, and that problem is THE SCHOOL HAD NO DEFENSES AT ALL. All you are doing is attacking the freedom of innocent people. Knock it off.
You are not going to stop this from happening again. It is going to happen again. The only question is whether or not the victims are going to be defenseless again, and my guess is that they certainly will be, because people are just plain ****ing stupid.
I have many guns. I am not a gun grabber but to you.
I have been typing one handed for some time to please you.
I give up, you win. You are right.
We have a despot in the WH. Go off and smirk. I cannot help.
Yes, I agree. If I had children, which I am not going to, I would not send them to school at all.
It seems to me that the purpose of school these days is to utterly destory children, and they are effective at it in a number of ways.
OK, I have many guns. I live in Los Angeles.
You say the mentally ill are not allowed to have guns. I don’t remember ever having to show even my drivers license.
What are you suggesting?
I’m not trying to be a jerk, although I’m sure you will accuse me of that ...but are there any measures to keep a psychotic from buying guns?
Funny, the mods have pulled every photo like that of Lanza that I have posted.
Maybe, just maybe, BunnySlippers, (please at least consider it a short moment) everyone is disagreeing with you because, you, not they, are wrong.
If you can’t reconsider, or still think you are in the right, then it is possible that your idea, being in the minority here, needs to be better defended by you, instead of pitying people or appealing to just read the article.
I'll say it again. Support your claims with a reference to annual deaths attributed to children accessing firearms.
Oh, I do not for a minute, think I am in the minority. Your bad.
Of course, but that is MY subjective opinion.
No, I've, as well as others here, have asked how to define it. And more importantly, who is going to define it.
Who would you trust with the ability to start denying God Given rights to others?
How about a "Rights" tsar?
The real point here us, if you can start taking rights from some because you or a majority think it is okay, especially in view of such a tragedy, then they're really not rights....are they? (FFA 1968 ring a bell?)
I do not do research on demand. Sorry you do not read the news on a regular basis.
It’s been here on FR and everyone decries the druggie parents. Yet you do not.
I cannot define it. And I admit it is a difficult issue. Perhaps never surmounted.
So, you can’t possible be wrong, is that it?
I disagree, and I’m not wrong. Nana-nana-nyah!
You may as well have the last word (since that’s what this REALLY appears to be what it’s all about—being that you’re right and all). /S
You can't find any data. So you make your emotional claim.
Anyone willing to give up my freedoms based on their emotion is a petulant facist.
But, the government ... our government, yours and mine, is threatening to take away our arms ... not our bathtubs.
How freaking stupid!!!
You mean like, first they came for the crazies but I thought it was a good idea so I supported it.
Then they came for the ones who were of a different political persuasion and found out I was one of them.
But THEY supported it so I guess it was okay...
I merely I the courage of my convictions. Nothing more.
Bump to an excellent post!
No, but if you are wedded to that idea ... go with it.
You are basing your willingness to give up MY rights on your emotional reaction to an event. I'll not stand for that.
Facts can help. Documented facts, which you seem short on.
Regarding Mayor Bloomberg's comments: If the killer had instead stolen a UPS delivery truck and killed 26 people by driving it into a classroom, would Bloomberg be calling for tighter controls on commercial trucks? Of course not...instead he's be calling for improved mental health programs and more research into drugs to help mentally ill people. It's so obvious, but I'll say it again: If we make ownership of guns illegal, then only criminals will own guns and criminals of course do not follow the law and will use their guns to terrorize and slaughter the disarmed law-abiding people. Enough said...now settle down Bloomberg and try some logical thinking for a change. Possibly we need a way to prevent mentally-ill people from buying guns, but that has to be done very carefully with a strict definition of who is really mentally ill.
Hey, my plumber reversed CA law. And I have a closet full of 100 watt light bulbs.
Thank you for reminding me. We have 2 weeks to hoard 75 watt bulbs.
Rage. On your own.
Congrats, you have just rendered every argument you have made on this thread...moot!
Not really. i am merely acknowledging the possibly insurmountable odds.
You do not know g=how to debate.

You do not know how to debate.
As another poster on this thread pointed out, you meet arguments that illustrate the fallacy of your point with sarcastic dribble.
You're a waste of time, when they come for yours, don't expect a lot of sympathy from those who tried to warn you.
I suspect that I fully agree with you. The edit is hard to follow.
Yaeh, I've heard a lot of losers say that.
Well, I bid you good bye.
Yes, just as i predicted.
The first thing I learned in rhetoric class (which was right after latin class) is to have the facts. Real facts.
You don't do that. You argue from emotion.
Thousands of people are killed every year in small cars when they get hit by much bigger and taller vehicles. So are liberals calling for a ban on small cars? Of course not. Instead they’re implementing much tighter fuel efficiency standards that will make cars smaller and lighter and even more dangerous to drive if the car companies don’t make a major effort to design stronger structural components made with high-strength materials. The focus on gun control is irrational, when many more people are killed in traffic accidents every year. If the government wants to stop gun violence without infringing on our rights and leaving us unarmed in a nation filled with armed criminals, then start a program to publicize the need to lock up guns securely at home. That will stop these awful incidents when young kids shoot each other.
I have had to show my driver's license and fill out a questionaire, and pay for and submit to a federal background check for every firearm that I own.
Im not trying to be a jerk, although Im sure you will accuse me of that ...but are there any measures to keep a psychotic from buying guns?
If you have been involuntarliy admitted to a hospital for the purposes of mental health, you cannot buy a firearm. If you have been found to have PTSD, you cannot buy a firearm nor can you possess one.
Once again, this killer did not buy any of the firearms used. No law would have or could have prevented this from happening. There were laws against everything he did, yet he still did everything he did.
You continue to fail to address to root cause of this massacre WHICH IS THAT SCHOOLS ARE DEFENSELESS BECAUSE OF IDIOT LIBERALS AND THEIR IDIOT LAWS, so I can only assume that your eventual goal is to create more herds of defenseless sheep to be slaughtered by wolves, because you feel like you need to do something that not only is meaningless, it is dangerous.
I suggest that you wake up. You are not helping anything, you are hurting.
If you want children in schools to be safe, then defend the schools. All day, every day, year in, year out. That's all, nothing else.
Yeah, right ... :o)
There it is...
shes already been executed...how much more do you want ???
