Tell your Congressman to tack a NATIONAL CARRY CONCEALLED WEAPON amendment to any such Bill!

Also, remind everyone that the Mall shooter earlier last week was stopped by an armed citizen! (Yes, he shot himself but that happened AFTER he was confronted!)

Why not cover all the bases and just make illegal to kill someone. 3500 abortions per day in the US, and they wonder why Human life has no value?

How about investigating the cause/effect link between the MSM and the next nut case waiting-in-the-wings shooter?

No sh!t. PP kills more beautiful innocent children and not a peep from Obama. Wait a minute, he voted for partial birth abortions that makes him a co-conspirator.

Does anyone know the procedure for that????

It’s as gruesome as the carnage at Sandy Hook.

The cry and MO of the Leftists. Tragedies should never go wasted and unused. The Demagoguery Party (AKA the DEMOgogbureauCRATS) will use any excuse for more government and more regulations.

Lieberman should study a bit about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

The 2nd Amendment is about one of those inalienable rights; the right to self defense. This right was exercised at Warsaw, forfeited at Auschwitz.

“They can’t do that unless the Republican controlled House agrees to it.”

Cause for fear then.

Does it matter to these assclowns that no assault weapons were used in the theater, the mall, the school, Phoenix,...

They need to take away all the guns so their bastards (1st meaning) can kill my wife and children and leave us defenseless.

I’d like to point out that the school was a perfect example of a ‘gun free zone.’ Worked out really well for them when push came to shove. Right?
God comfort and keep the families who lost their dear, sweet, innocent children.

on mass violence to examine gun laws

Why are there guns laws is what they should examine.

And it's past time for them to examine the law that makes it legal to kill the innocent.
