It really isn't about safety from guns...it is about control of citizens and disarming them so they can't rebel against Obama's new world order when it is announced on the very day we realize they have all the ammunition.
None of the recently passed laws in Colorado would have done anything for the kids at Sandy Hook and neither would any of the bills recently debated in the US Senate. The anti-civil rights agenda of gun grabbing Gabby is based upon emotion, not fact. As Obama is fond of saying, if we could save just one life... Well, look at recent news stories (not in national media, you have to search local media) and see how many people's lives are saved because of armed citizens who save lives daily. Then let's discuss gun grabbing Gabby's agenda again.
It is interesting on this blog that when faced with the simple truth that these gun laws would not have stopped any of the tragedies like Gabby Gabby, they punch the 'dislike' button like stomping their feet and say ' I want the world to be different' without offering any solution but the path of ineffective legislation. Do any of you liberals have anything intelligent to say more than just your immature foot stomping?
Wow bunny, that could be, hands down, the best post I have seen on any subject.
(I don't know about golf being a vice, however.)
I have been on both sides of this issue. I have been victimized yet I still believe in everyones right to bear arms and protect themselves if they so choose. I also believe those people who do not wish to own guns should have their choice without trampling on other peoples rights. Just because something bad happened to me, I do not want to punish other people by taking their rights away. Gun control laws do not work and they do nothing to resolve the real issues. I feel for the injuries and the loss that people have suffered at the hands of someone who is criminally ill. I've been there. Does this mean that guns should be outlawed or tighter gun control laws are going to help anybody? No. My perpetrator as well as every other mass shooting that I have investigated had one thing in common. They were all on psychotropic drugs. My perpetrator, who I had lived with for 10 years, changed overnight. Within 30 days of being on psychiatric medication for depression he was unrecognizable. He went from being depressed to trying to kill me and sitting in the corner rocking back and forth afterwards looking like a madman, hair unkempt and glazed over eyes. We got him titrated off his medications and he went back to being normal and depressed, but not a madman. To this day, he said that he can't describe in words what those drugs made him think and feel in his mind. He said he truly felt crazed and couldn't believe his actions. Perhaps we should look at our own society and our underlying issues. America is a hedonistic society that wants to avoid any type of personal displeasure. We use drugs, alcohol, tv, violent games, sex, shopping, eating, golf, and just about every vice you can think of to avoid feeling uncomfortable in any way. Perhaps we should each learn individually how to stop avoiding emotional discomfort so we will no longer act out on others or ourselves or use mood altering chemicals including pharmaceuticals to try to deal with everyday life. We have become a society with no coping skills and we are hurting each other because of it. We drug our children with Ridalin when they do not behave properly because it makes teachers and parents uncomfortable. We drug our soldiers so our government/society doesn't have to be accountable to what we've done overseas. We lack principles to live by and so drive it away with our hedonistic behaviors that create great pain and suffering. This is the root of our problems. Not guns.
Giffords was doing her elected job when a bullet robbed her of her career and many months of life. She lives with the knowledge that a staff member lost his life protecting her. She's earned her opinion on gun control in a way few people have. Same for her husband.
This is not a liberal/conservative issue. Ask President Reagan's press secretary James Brady. As he said in a radio interview, "It's hard to forget you've been shot in the head."
Not a single part of this legislation would have deterred the shooter in her situation...she is mixing apples and oranges and distracting congress from real solutions.
Pathetic Indy, just pathetic. Do you liberals feel better reading this screed? The bill in question means NOTHING to the people of Colorado. Both of our Senators voted for it, and all the provisions of this law ARE ALREADY COLORADO STATE LAW. All gun show sales have background checks here. And the Senate bill touted a "friends and family sale" exemption. It was a toothless and unenforceable bill (unless Obama thinks we should start registering who our friends are). So Mrs. Giffords, do us all a favor and go away, and take that hypocrite husband with you.
Simple question - How would this bill (or any other) "prevent future tragedies"?
This bleeding-heart, liberal misguided overreaction to sociopaths will solve nothing and, in fact, ignores the real problem.
