Wait A Day or so until the Government has its Ducks in a Row.

I'm sure Obama will have some pithy statement to make, and urge Congress to Enact some backroom law.

Right on time. Ryda King, care to join in?

And now we wait for the gun control advocates to come out and say that we need to ban guns. When will people realize that no matter what laws you enact people like this monster will always find a way to get a gun? Sane people do not do these types of things. Clearly there was something wrong with this man and he decided to take it out on little innocent children. I hope he went painfully and suffered. And what about somebody who wants a gun to protect their homes and families? What are you going to tell them? It's ok the person is trying to kill me I will just talk him out of it. Please!

Those dudes want to kill kids in the game!

Please don't draw stupid parallels in a situation like this.

 

It's going to be bad enough with the gun activists on both sides screaming for changes.

 

Truth is, more psychiatric care is needed. And less war.

This is children we're talking about, completely defenceless. Would it make a difference if their parents or teachers owned a gun? No. Would it make a difference if guns were more strictly controlled (not banned) and background health checks were more rigorous? There's a chance yes, that there wouldn't be nearly 30 families without their kids or siblings this Christmas. But that's just my opinion.

 

A nightmare for them that none of us can even imagine unless you have children yourself. Any word on the missing class?

Your rights end where my knee jerk reactions begin.

 

Sure, there is no proof that the enactment of gun laws has ever reduced crime rates, but that shouldn't stop us from severely infringing on people's rights! I mean it's not like prohibition has severe, unintended consequences or anything!

Truth is, more psychiatric care is needed. And less war.

The problem is that juries don't seem to like acknowledging that some criminals are not responsible for their actions.

America can improve its psychiatric care all it wants, but that won't stop stupid jurors from ignoring evidence of mental illness and sending people to rot in a prison.

 

Richard Chase springs to mind. He killed a whole family because he was experiencing several schizoid delusions. In one, he believed that someone had stolen his arteries. At one point he was running through a hospital, screaming about a 'thief' who entered his body and stole his blood. They ignored him.

In fact, lots more people ignored him even as he wandered the streets covered in the blood of his victims. He didn't even possess the cunning to change his clothes or wash after he slaughtered an entire family. But they still judged him sane. Go figure.

 

But no one thought he should have been helped. They locked him up and the poor, diseased man ended up killing himself.

 

Government involvement isn't nearly as important as ensuring that the legal system doles out justice instead of revenge.

If the shooter is Ryan Lanza, as the news is saying, then here's his Facebook. He's playing GTA in some of the videos, I hope there's no sh*tstorm.

Me too I just hope people realize that not everybody who plays GTA wants to commit these crimes. I have been playing for 5 years and never once have i wanted to act out what i saw in a video game.

WHAT!?

This is beyond sad... There isn't even words for something like this. I can't even begin to understand it. Fathom it... Peoples children killed. Staff as well, sons, daughters, husbands, wives. All because of some sick f*ck.

 

I'm disgusted, truly.

 

I have a comment on the whole gun control bit, but I'm just gonna save it. the comments are flying as it is. I just can't believe this has happened. There are things in this world you just don't think you will ever hear about. I always hoped an elementary school shooting would be one of them. What the f*ck?

It may seem insensitive, and I'd rather not turn this into an argument, so if someone could answer me in the simplest terms possible:

Given the high amount of crimes lax gun control has caused, what are the arguments against gun control?

Does it boil down to a simple matter of personal liberty? Or is the idea that personal gun ownership prevents the government from oppressing the people?

I'm not insulting anyone, I'm simply asking because - not to be disrespectful - but owning guns seems, at best, dangerous and, at worst, severely irresponsible.

I'd just like to understand why people want such awful weapons.

That's what I don't get either. Why there's such a craving to be able to have that "freedom" to be able to walk into your local Walmart and purchase a weapon like so.

 

I for one am not for full-on gun control, but I do believe the laws and qualifications need to be revamped and added on to.

Well I know in my particular region of the United States people are keen on having guns because they're always waiting on something to happen and in some cases look forward to whatever that something is. The something can range from a race war to a home invasion to a terrorist attack to some kind of impending government crack down, whatever it is they feel they need their deadly weapons to protect themselves from that inevitable something that's lurking around the corner. I also think small penis syndrome factors into the need to have several large, deadly weapons but to a lesser extent.

I don't think anyone other than full-on lunatic militias types are opposed to gun control in principle. The disagreements come from what level of control exists. That's where the US should ape other nations. 5 yearly firearm licensing with a basic psychological report, mandatory training of x hours per year and a clean criminal record is all that's really needed, and with a system like that you could legalize either concealed or open carry without issues.

 

I suppose that really you don't want gun control, but control of people who can access guns. Subtly different.
