When will Time figure out the one thing that they ALL have in common? That being all occurred within sitting-duck zones, fraudulently misnamed "gun-free zones" by the leftist blissninny hoplophobe idiots that created them and have blood on their hands for creating them and allowing these massacres to occur.... get rid of the sitting duck killing zones and these stop cold.... this was PROVEN by both the hands-on experience of Israel in the 70s, and by Professor John Lott's work, that concealed carry holders being present vastly decreases violent crime, including MPSs (mass public shootings).
We need to remove emotion. Both sides want REDUCED CRIME. Here are Youtube videos that get to the FACTS of the matter,using unbiased crime statistics from the FBI.
Firearms Crime, on a national level, is down over 50% since 1992. It seems this is not brought up because this would not play-well with the liberal ruling party who is promoting fear mongering to get new legislation passed.
Where is the crime rate high? In inner cities of population centers greater than 250,000. Almost DOUBLE the national average. Let's study, learn and focus,and try to fix THAT problem.
Hows does "Assault weapons" fit-in?. "Assault Weapons" are only a FRACTION within the "long arms"CATEGORY). All "long guns" represent 1% to 7% of firearms related crime. "Assault weapons" portion within "long guns" represent maybe 20% of THAT tally (20% of 1-7%)....think about that !Ehy go after Assault rifles? Because there is "another agenda" in play. To disarm the American populace. And to say "we did something....we gotta do something !!!."
Whatever side you fall on in this issue, let's remove emotion and try to use citable *facts*.
What I don't understand is why the gun lovers simply don't build a monument to their deity -- a Bushmaster etched into the side of Mount Rushmore for example -- and build a chapel beneath it and worship it. They put their guns before all other things -- God, their own children, their national government -- so they should simply worship Him (or is it a Her?) as their primary spiritual force. Then all the rest of this firearm mania would make some kind of insane sense. Because, when it comes to religion, logic or human concerns are rarely involved.
I find it interesting that 1/2 of those deaths were suicide, deaths that would likely have happened anyway by some other means, whereas today suicide accounts for about 2/3 of deaths by gunshot. If the total number of deaths has held steady as claimed, then that means that total murders has gone down despite gun ownership steadily rising.
To all of those that thought Owebama stood with the lower & middle class ----- pull the wool out of your sheeple eyes ---- more money hungry pigs surround him than any president in the past. Isn't is amazing, it has taken 30 days to come up with a rash of new gun control laws and still some 4 years with no budget. Truly truly dissappointed in the New York Republicans, total and complete failure for our country. Mid-terms will be here soon and I pray to the good Lord Jesus Christ that heads will roll. Fire with fire, eye for an eye, or whatever you want to call it, but no to lay-me-down and stomp all over me.
this is such a fraud. Gabby Giffords is wounded when Judge John Roll Cheif Justice of Arizona is shot 5 times center mass and we are to believe the killer was there for here.. Judge John Roll supported the 2nd Amendment and the Gun Grabbers tried to kill him many times.. much like JFK refused to push for Gun Control even thought the Black Panthers were walking into the California Capitol with loaded weapons. this is the Truth. Reactionary Politics are used to harm society. Anthrax from a US Military Lab is used to attack Congress and before we have time to know what is what we are invading Iraq.. wake up Sheeple.. they are trying to use Reactionary Politics to start another War. a War on Americans 2nd Amendment. isn't it bad enough the war on terror was used to attack Americans.. i am sick of it. and Time has been on the wrong side of History Before. so Remember that.
@Maxlyn You're a blithering idgit..... what on EARTH would make you think they come before our children, etc? They SAVE lives - many more than they take, so you set up a false dichotomy - those things are not at odds - they're consistent. The social science PROVES this. It proves that guns save lives and reduce violent crime. The UK's experience also proves this - their violent crime rate right now is much higher than ours, and much higher than theirs used to be before their draconian gun bans. We value children of course much more highly than tools, so we want and need the TOOLS to defend them - those ideas are aligned, not divergent, you see. Leftist blissninny hoplophobotards like Maxlyn are the kings and queens of false dichotomies, fraudulent naming, lack of logic; and most importantly, the leftists are people of science (great!) in every area EXCEPT guns, when suddenly science goes out the window and it's all about pure emotion and legislating by what you FEEL works to reduce crime and improve public safety - not what's PROVEN to do so. And do YOU worship your fire extinguisher and spare tire? If not, then why do you have them? You obviously love them - those tools for contingencies. You should erect a shrine to them or accept limitations - no fire extinguisher which can hold more than 12 oz, and no spare tire that allows you to go over 20 mph. If you don't like those restrictions, then you are obviously in love with your contingency tools. Again, your plenary stupidity is just unbelievable.
The President has offered budgets, but the real responsibility for putting them forward falls to the House, not him.
Speaking of sheeple...
@BobHobby Amen and hear hear, Bob - you speak very wisely.
I agree Bob. Truly a sad time in our country when the war is now on the law abiding citizens for the benefit of the criminals. The media is clearly on the side of total control by this administration. Join the NRA. The three pictured in this article are truly repulsive and so anti-American that it makes me sick. Now we will get to watch Obama parade his youth pawns today as he touts his gun control agenda, utterly discussting how he uses props to play on the emotions of the weak. Millions of millions in the flock of sheeple that will someday pay the ultimate price. History means nothing to these pigs, they are only focused on their takeover and erasing history as we know it. The fight is on, I know which side I am on.
@DanielStoner @Maxlyn I'm sorry, but that's hilarious. I live in the UK. Handguns are illegal, our police don't routinely carry them (and when they do, it's only highly-trained officers), and compared to the USA we have a fraction of the violent crime and gun-related deaths (when they happen, they're a shock, not part of life). It's a safer, more comfortable society. Yes, 'people kill people', but it's a lot easier when you've got a gun.
And also falsehood.
