How do you prevent something like Newtown. Take away all the guns? All the sharp objects? How do you prevent an earthquake? A rockslide, or a hurricane? This kid was a nut case, nothing could have been done to stop him.
For starters Hollywood could stop making violent movies, Video games are a serious violent place where kids spend hours at a time. The government can't prevent something like this. Obama wants to take the weapons away from his people and this is just the ticket.
What happen in Connecticut makes you sick to your stomach. It was just not right what happen. But.....before we go on crusade to take away our right to bare arms remember this, are we going to take away knives, cars, gasoline, rope, baseball bats etc, all which used to commit murder. The gun or bullets can sit there all day and never hurt a soul. The gun had no motivation in this. It all comes down to the sick SOB that decides to carry something like this out. Here could of used a gallon of gas and torched the classroom off. If that where to happen are you going to ban buying gas at the gas station. Mental Health seems to be the problem here that needs to be delt with!!! People are murder everyday in this country and a firearm was not used. But when a gun is used it draw the most attention.
HERE COMES YOUR GUN CONTROL from our commander and thief, only Mexico can get assault rifles???
We are mourning with the country and these poor people. We hold children tight and love them extra, now. We must be extra careful with them.
Bless all of the precious little ones here, we are so grateful for all of their safety and health. Life is so very fragile.
And just HOW can government stop tragedies? How can tighter restrictions on guns stop bad guys from breaking laws? The only people gun laws effect are law abiding citizens. Mr prez, your blowing "feel good" smoke up everyone's backside again. It's all about your unconstitutional policies! And you know it!
"regardless of the politics" - translation: "I'll do an end run around the checks and balances to push this through."
No question this was a terrible tragedy. I find it interesting, however, that the same people who were unwilling to infringe on the 4th Amendment via the Patriot Act when 2,985 people were killed during the 911 attacks, are willing to infringe on the 2nd Amendment as a result of the 26 deaths in Connecticut.
The converse to that argument is that many who defended the Patriot Act are now fervently against additional gun controls.
Let's try to be consistent folks. I, for one, continue to support the Constitution. Taking away personal responsibility of those committing evil acts, placing the burden on laws only decent people will follow, will not reverse declining morals.
WE HAVE TO PREVENT MORE TRAGEDIES
Well said Bert !!!
I need A leader NOT savior ! cure the problem by taking away constitution .
Even the mental health dr. on t.v say the sick people will find away to act out, yes guns make it easier . but some one determined to kill will find away !
Any one that wants so badly to to be a dictator should not be president .
I am responsible for my family and my self . not the government.
FOR example obama also taught giving the banks billion was a good idea.
the banks sat on the money invested overseas not here. DID he do any thing to fix that no BUT he will raise taxes or force health care ins. SO blame guns not the system PEOPLE WHO ILL CAN BE CURED BY TAKING THE INANIMATE OBJECT OUT OF THE MIX. and by paying more taxes cause money fuels drugs guns and sex.
Also this weekend, on "Guns Don't Kill People":
Police officers shot and killed, responding to incident and
Man fires 50 shots into the air in New Port Beach.
wethehonestppl...yea,like world peace.....It will never happen...sorry....I do agree with one thing you have ever said,and that was your initial post on this article
wethehonestppl..............and in China,a man kills 20 students with a KNIFE......that was Thursday...why wasnt this all over our news?Also Billions of people were protected with guns yesterday....and today,and tomorrow....
Why do you people always think President Obama wants your guns? He wants the guns that are used for war not your pistol. Do you really think your guns are going to be taken away? I don't think so. I won't give up mine and you won't give up yours. I believe we should arm the teachers. Not with assault weapons. Assault weapons are used for war. Less people would die or have a chance of getting away if the shooter has to pull the trigger one shot at a time. In the Newtown case the kids got mowed down again. Us gun owners can't possibly think this is ok? You people are more worried about your guns than the innocent small children who just died. Just say the word Obama and you are on the negative boat. People don't want to hear about your guns in the middle of a funeral. Shame on you.
Cliche but true: Guns cause crime like pencils misspell words.
Guns actually deter crime. To claim otherwise is to lie.
School faculty should all be trained and armed, and if they can't be trusted with a firearm, they shouldn't be trusted to care for our kids.
The only way to even come close to stopping this is to live in a dictatorship where life is cheap. I think not. This was terrible, but not preventable.
OF course there is not one person any where that would not give up every thing including life to stop a single child being hurt .
You ME every one would like a perfcet world .
THE sad reality is no law , or religion ,or govrnment that can stop insanity !
I think we are all flailing around here looking for answers, but there is no one magic cure that will solve this horrible situation we are in as a nation. We need to attack it on all fronts - keeping guns out of the hands of unstable people, treating mental illness better, making sure that security precautions are taken more seriously at public events, and so on. But mostly, WE NEED A SERIOUS CULTURAL CHANGE in this country, to de-emphasize the climate of violence that we get pumped at us all day long from the media, from movies, video games, even local news (sorry, MML), and start treating it as an abnormality, rather than a natural piece of everyday life. Everything starts in the mind, after all, and until we get this stuff out of our heads, these events will continue to happen.
In this world we need people who can give a positive effect to others. Every time I see tragedy I get this feeling that makes me want to become a better person. Makes me want to get in the best shape of my life and do good in the world. I guess i must have this inside me but certain things just make it come out.
I want to be a good man.
Yet....Obama makes me want to say...LIAR.
How can one be this way?
Here is forty shillings.....
and FAR AWAY..
A knife's purpose is not to kill someone. Or many people very quickly.
Holes in this logic. Time to talk about many things, but the fact that deadly weapons are too easy for too many people to obtain is a BIG problem. Answer to talk more about this, how we can prevent it.
Heads out of the egotistical sand.
Funny, it seems to me people like Obama, ( from the most corrupt city in America as per FBI ) and Democrats dividing us by race, sex, religion and economic level is leading the break down of Americas moral fiber. Democrats who dominate TV and multi-media continue to lower the moral bar. Check out this link and pay special attention to The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals . You will be shocked at how many goals have been achieved.
The Breakdown of Moral Discipline In America
How dare he go to this memorial & start preaching about his so called "gun control" to families who are grieving. Just what they needed to hear. He who is surrounded by people with guns everywhere he goes. What he said there is unforgiveable. If I had been one of the parents of a lost child I would have gotten up & walked out. What was he trying to do start a riot. Just goes to show he has no compassion for what happened. Just looking for Americans to support his policies. Just one more thing to add to my list of what I think of him.
Haha! The most corrupt city in America.
Crockett, you could write for Colbert!
"Heads out of the egotistical sand." Speak for yourself. On a side note, I was wondering if there is any topic you do not have all the answers for, oh great one of wisdom? ;)
@leaperman621...If I have discerned your comment right, I believe your problem is that you see things from the viewpoint of a political party first, and from the viewpoint of a human being second, when you should be seeing things only from a human being perspective. You wouldn't be the only one on this site with this problem. Of course I could be way off base...?
@rrhs...I NEED a savior, and he is definitely NOT from this country...
