Posted on 12/16/2012 10:20:49 PM PST by WilliamIII
Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, Connecticut independent, said Sunday the United States should restore a federal ban on assault weapons and also create a national commission on mass violence to examine gun laws, mental health laws, and the link between entertainment and violence in the wake of the deadly shootings in Newtown, Conn., that left 26 victims dead, including 20 children.

They can’t do that unless the Republican controlled House agrees to it. And them slimely scum RINO’s best not buckle under the pressure if they know what’s good for em.
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!)
While we are at it let’s ban Alcohol no more drunk driving deaths
We should ban cars too.
Silly goose, it's the automobiles that do the killin, not the drinkin. You gotta ban automobiles.
Fully automatic SUV’s in particular.
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?
Lieberman can’t go away quick enough.
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.
Hey Lieberman and other crazed commie fools..will you PLEASE ban BBQ Forks because this grandmother would be alive today if it weren’t for a BBQ Fork attack by her grandson
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 cant 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,...
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.
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.
[[and also create a national commission on mass violence to examine gun laws,]]
Translation- they want a commission to study soemthign that has already been studied to death and they want ot be paid mass amount of $$ to study it
That can’t do it unless I agree to it.
The republicans can go to Hell where they belong.
Do you know what I see on earth today?
Evil eating evil eating evil eating evil eating evil eating good.
The dimensions of the former are actually infinite, and the dimensions of the latter are no longer visible.
I am not going to feed the evil of this world by surrendering the rights that God blessed me with.
I am keeping that gift, and I do not care what the consequence is.
I’ve nothing more precious to keep than freedom.
What if they decide to sell out and join the Left in ruling over a nation of peasants who will have no recourse? We could be on the brink of a government-attempted coup against the American people. Or turning this national could just be a slimy way to get Benghazi off the news. Time will tell, but as of tonight I’m a pessimist. The damned GOP can’t seem to see they’re getting the bum’s rush on issue after issue to keep them off balance and responding to too many crises to be effective in addressing the critical issues. The GOP needs to go on the attack, and our televisions need to go off. We have to stop feeding our enemies in the news and media industry. They’re poison to the Republic.
Folks we have got to get organized. We need to start counter protests.
Let us solve everything! Let’s ban Progressives!!!
That SOB is age TWENTY-TWO, and they’re calling him a “CHILD”???? IDIOTS!!!
WHy is it that when 20 islamofascists killed 3,000 innocent people—more than 100 times more than were killed on Friday—no one suggested banning jet aircraft?
We don’t NEED an assault rifle bill PERIOD. He could have done as much damage with five semi-automatic pistols on his belt.
Boehner is a surrender monkey.
Write, e-mail and call all those whores in Congress and TELL THEM.
They may not know how to balance a budget, but they CAN COUNT!
I haven’t read anything that said he even used the rifle!
The link between entertainment and violence? All of rap, some of metal, all violent video games and all violent movies, books and TV shows would end up being banned as well.
I thought Lieberman that idiot was retiring? Did he lie about that, too?
Fully automatic assault SUVs with barrel shrouds.
I know Durbin is into his remedial studies these days. Maybe there’s an online Constitution course he could check out.
The last I read the rifle was found in the trunk of a car. Does anyone know if there is an update?
M.E. says two+ shots in each victim from “assault” rifley’know, like those used to “assault” deer.
Lets ban Neanderthal labor union rioters also.
I’ve been saying this for years. Without ORGANIZATION, resistance to any government whim to attack citizens Constitutional rights is futile.The country is being led by idiots who want total control and are supported by only a little over 50% of the country.I compare the other 50%(citizens who are proud of our country and heritage) to Moses and his followers wandering around in the desert looking for the promised land.
Hey Joe, let’s ban Jews with short memories.
(Initial reports said that a Bushmaster carbine had been removed from the trunk of the car, but like most of the initial reports, it now looks like this was wrong. It now appears that a shotgun was removed from the trunk of the car, and that the Bushmaster was used in the massacre.)
Mass murder seems VERY much out of character for an individual with Asperger's syndrome -- I'm now wondering if he had recently had a medication change of some sort.
This is just idle speculation on my part with no real basis in fact, but since the national news has been broadcasting idle speculation with no real basis in fact for several days now, I won't apologize.
The .223 Remington cartridge really isn't the best choice to hunt deer, or larger game animals. It's not very powerful. It's more commonly used to hunt varmints like coyotes.
According to JAMA Doctors kill more people than cars and guns, so let’s ban doctors! /s/
People (by that I mean libs and politicians) always think they have to do something, make some kind of law or something after a tragedy. But the truth is, nothing they can do will stop evil people doing evil things.
Assault weapons ban: 1993, Columbine: 1998. It really worked wonders.
U.S. Murders: All 13,636; Hands and Feet 801; Assault Rifles: less than 348
I say ban high capacity gun-free zones.
