It's a bit bizarre though....it's weird that an administration that illegally and purposefully allowed tens of thousands of the very firearms they're currently attempting to push bans on "walk" across the southern border and into the hands of dangerous and violent people is now imposing gun laws by edict...indeed, it's ironic.

every american shot dead since newtown

Pretty cool interactive site. Did you see Chicago's death by gun since Sandy hook count? Holy moly! And that's with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation! Curiously enough, most of those victims will be voting in the next general election.

Anyway, next Thursday, I'm going to an interesting event scheduled here in my neck of the woods. The speakers lined up appear to be an eclectic bunch representing both sides of the debate and I'm really looking forward to attending on the one day of an otherwise six days in a row I'm scheduled to work: http://www.scpaflorida.com/...-public-safety-forum

Having strict gun laws helps, but it certainly isn't a panacea if there are places without strict gun laws next door.

THIS. Sweet Jesus THIS.

Gun laws aren't going to make a damn of difference in the first year or even decade. There's an awful lot of guns out there, and it will take a while for that to drain out. But the problem is the gun culture, and we're not going to change that if we keep insisting that mental issues only get flagged on a background check after you've already flipped out and been arrested.

I don't disagree that the only way to stop a mass murderer with a gun is somebody else with a gun. The issue is preventing a person from becoming a mass murderer in the first place. The "threat" of other people with guns just guarantees that the would-be mass murderer doesn't have to be strong enough to kill themselves after the fact. Since the plan often entails suicide-by-cop, if anything, we're making it easier on these nuts.

I have been following the debate in the Senate and I have come to the conclusion that both sides are passionate about their view point and are unwilling to hear the other side with a truly open mind but, crazy 2nd amendment zealots with guns certainly would win the match against the unarmed intellects. Play nice out there and compromise using common sense or the lambs will be led to slaughter.
Sorry Curt I couldn't resist.

The movement within our culture that idolizes and reveres guns. If its just a tool, why aren't there entire video game genres that fetishize hammers?

While I disagree with the appropriate response to it, I agree that the sheer volume of violent, gun-heavy media is symptomatic of a greater problem. We've got gang bangers and accountants alike coming strapped. We, as a culture, have convinced ourselves that guns are status symbols, virility enhancers, accessories. Its like car culture, except that the killing power of a car is incidental to its symbolic role. The gun derives all of its symbolic power from its killing power.

Face it curt, you really don't rank in "astute." Not on this subject, nor on the Constitution.

Here's yet another individual I agree with. A Sandy Hook dad, nonetheless...

The ultraconservative nut-case world that pinky lives in is interesting in that intelligence is not only unvalued, it's actually contemptible.

You have to actually have some in order to be found contemptible of it.

I like the part about how wonderful the vast majority gun owners are, and how we should focus on the small percentage of nutbags that show dangerous, murderous intent. How many times do you have to be investigated by the Secret Service before you fall into that category?

By the way, just how long does Ted have until he's either dead or in prison? Did that clock start when he made those comments, on election night, or when Obama was sworn in?

So, this is what it may come down to when criticizing the current administration, a "knock on your door," or worse?

So you can't even accept reality when you have photographic evidence right in front of you. Why am I not surprised.

Conservatives consistently reject reality.
