When Muslim terrorists strike many demand action, but when an American slaughters dozens of people with a gun, all we get are "thoughts and prayers."

I don't often agree with Wayne, but on this I think he's right. Teachers and citizen's alike should be able to protect themselves. If we are not committed to keeping guns out of the hands of unbalanced individuals, then we should at least level the playing field. If not, then we must admit, that we as a country are perfectly all right with daily massacres.

I agree, let's implement a ban on all religiously confused individuals. Seriously who wants people who believe in fairies and make-believe as neighbors. Anyone foolish enough to believe the writings of nomadic goat herders, compiled 300+ years afterwards, is a wacked out fruit loop. If their faith feeds their sole, let it do so at sea, in hostile territory, anywhere but here. So as it has been written, so it shall be true.....

LMFAO, you whiners are a bunch of candy asssssssses. Nothing fails like prayer, except possibly voting for a republican.

Ha, "whiners" - this, coming from members of the party that needed comfort dogs, Play-Doh, hot cocoa and crayons after their crooked candidate's monumental loss one year ago today! You make ME LMFAO!

Whose my candidate again? And yes, yes, yes, there's nothing I enjoy more than snuggling up in a warm blanket, sipping on hot cocoa in my world's best mom mug, watching Oprah, and coloring away in my Disney color books.....

There's a difference - the 2nd Amendment is a right under our Constitution, whereas there is no right to immigrate to this country whatsoever. We should end all Muslim immigration.

Explain why you NEED an assault rifle.

TenRing

First explain what an "assault rifle" Is. Any semi-auto firearm? Any firearm with a black stock?

Clarification

You know da-n well what we are taking about. This is NRA distraction rule #1. A weapon designed ONLY for killing people with a high capacity and high rate of fire. You need one for what purpose? Honestly? You gonna take on the gubment if it goes bad? You and what army?

TenRing

Clara, there are lots of things we don't necessarily "need." But who defines "need"? You? The government? As long as we are using these items in a lawful way and they in and of themselves are not harmful, why should the government decide on whether we "need" them or not? And most people who buy ARs or so called "assault rifles" (and AR really stands for Armalite Rifle) do so either for target practice or home defense or both - it's not so much because of fear of the government. Hurricane Katrina comes to mind, where people were forced to defend themselves from bands of thugs because the government WAS NOT there to do so.

BS! When Muslims kill people we want tighter vetting before they get here, BUT the bleeding heart liberals want nothing to do with that! HYPOCRITES Liberals only care about American lives when they are killed by other Americans. Illegal aliens and Muslims, not so much "we certainly can't shut down sanctuary cites and tighten Muslim vetting!!" When something like this church shooting happens, it reminds us of how laws against people owning certain weapons are useless. This guy should not have been able to have this weapon. So what's your solution? Take guns from EVERYONE even if they've never committed a crime with one? Then, as this shooting proves, only lunatics will have guns and killings will continue. Come up with a solution, or stop whining. Taking guns from everyone is NOT a solution. If making something illegal worked, our country would be drug free, and it's actually going the other way.

Time now for the simple-minded "guns don't kill people" remark. Yes they do and with increasing frequency by limp dikked fools with assault style weapons.

Climatehoax

I know people who have many guns for a loooong time, not a single one got out of the house, went somewhere and killed someone. Guns don't kill people. You sound so stupid, I suppose we need to say vehicles kill people because of the NY tradgedy. I want to take your car, cars are killers. Real smart!

MelloRedBuggVet2Lax

Explain why you need the kind of weapon the killer bought.

Climatehoax

Explain why people need fast cars, why people need that big boat, the most expensive golf clubs, that second home on the lake, we probably don't NEED 90% of the stuff we have, BUT, as a nation of free people, we CAN have these things if we want. Why did the guy in NY who ran those people over NEED that vehicle? He didn't, he chose to make that innocent vehicle a killing machine. As much as you want to, you can't blame the tools chosen by the mentally ill or the Islamic terrorists.
