Like Clockwork… Democrats Promise to Ban Assault Weapons after Sandy Hook Shootings

In the wake of Friday’s mass killing at an elementary school in Connecticut, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday on Meet the Press that she plans to introduce an assault weapons ban bill on the first day of the new Congress.

Democrats today promised to ban assault weapons following the shootings Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.
Telegraph reported:

A bill to restrict the use and sale of weapons like the high-powered Bushmaster .223 that coroners said had killed many of the children at Sandy Hook, would be introduced in the next session of the US Congress, promised senior Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein “It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession. Not retroactively but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets,” she told NBC News, adding that she expected Mr Obama to support the bill.

The move – which would essentially revive the Bill Clinton-era assault weapons that was allowed to lapse in 2004 – is expected to be highly controversial with the powerful gun lobby and politicians whose constituents cling fiercely to their Second Amendment gun rights.

Mr Obama has faced a sharp political dilemma over gun control, almost entirely ducking the issue in his first term because it would cost him votes in the key battleground states – Florida, Virginia, Ohio – which secured his re-election last November, but only by a collective tally of about 250,000 votes.

Chuck Schumer, another senior Democrat senator, said he believed that a deal could be done, but it would require both camps to show flexibility in their previously hard-and-fast attitudes on the subject.

    And did they offer any proposals to address our ‘Mental Health’ emergency?

    You know, the fact that it’s now easier in the United States to get a FREE cellphone from the government than to get desperately needed mental health care?

    What all the recent shootings had in common:

    – Mental illness
    – An automobile to drive to the place of destruction
    – Firearms

    The vast majority of both automobiles and firearms are used responsibly, but there is no such thing as a ‘responsible’ AND ‘mentally ill’ person.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    And you can absolutely count on the spineless RINOs in both the House and Senate siding with the Dems on legislation banning guns.

  • gastorgrab

    It’s rare for conservatives and ‘socialist-minded’ liberals to agree on anything, but the need to take care of a certain portion of the American population IS MERITED. Our government is wasting precious resources taking care of people who can take care of themselves, while those who do not have the capacity for self-sufficiency, and who pose a danger to themselves and others, are left stranded.

    THE VERY FIRST THING that the Welfare State should do is take care of those who are unable to take care of themselves. But where the Tyranny of the Majority rules the day, those folks simply are not a large enough voting block to make any impact on socialist attitudes.

  • RealMc

    Ok, so when are they going to ban abortions? Take a look at the number of viable human beings are killed every day using that method.

    How about cars, those are used everyday by drunk drivers to kill innocent people as well.

    Why just guns? I think because that is quite literally our last defense to becoming a full on banana republic run by a tin hat dictator.

    Also….Doug Giles has a very good point. I’d send my kids to Doug Giles Elementary in a heartbeat……

    …but it would require both camps to show flexibility in their previously hard-and-fast attitudes on the subject.

    We all know what that means – the Republicans are expected to “compromise”, and Democrats give away nothing.

    Schumer and the rest of his Democrat rat pack can all go to hell.

  • How does Feinstein define an “assault weapon?” How does she define a weapon “of war?”

    Is it the Bushmaster .223 that she objects to? What does she say when the Virginia Tech shooter killed more people than the Newtown shooter and he used a Glock 19 pistol?

    These people have no clue – automatic, semi-automatic, none of it means crap to them…you watch, it will go from an “assault weapons” ban to a ban that includes all “semi-automatic” weapons.

    Feinstein’s husband is a defense contractor. I’ll bet you the farm that Diane Feinstein has two Bushmaster .223 sitting inside her home in California at this very moment.

  • Patty

    This young man who killed in Sandy Hook was a sick individual. His mother had guns and he was a loner from all indications. In my opinion this all was a recipe for a tragedy to unfold.

    But for our gun rights to be taken away is not the answer. And his mother had all goods registered.

    I am on the fence about having such powerful such as an assault rifle. Now, these leaders must not concentrate on these assault weapons alone. Many factors are at play here. First, Lanza had a disease and had a tough youth, as was reported and played video games. Just how bloody these games were is another story. A loner, illness, guns in the home were all factors and you cannot just start speaking of gun control alone. But Obama will do something as he is once again being pressured but is he really being pressure because this tragedy has fueled the fire of the him and his liberal friends.

  • Patty

    A recipe for disaster doesn’t equate gun controls. It had all the makings of evil and no matter how many talks of change you cannot stop everyone. It is an impossibility. And guns, how many lives have been saved for having them.

    Let’s discuss this: If only 10% of the people
    who think they saved an innocent life were actually correct and we
    use Kleck’s latest estimate, it still leaves about 40,000 lives saved
    by armed citizens each year.

    http://scienceblogs.com/deltoid/1994/10/19/dgu-00007/

    Who knows but I would take a guess that more lives are saved then lost for having yourself armed.

  • Patty

    In an economy were people are in fear of not having a job, being fired or laid off, there are those who have gone out and shot up their boss and others. Many horrible situations have happened because of domestic violence. Men or women go into their spouse employment and kill their spouse and others.

    Assault rifles were not use in all cases. So, we cannot stop a mentally disturbed or stress out person who wants someone dead.

    It is not firearms. It is not laws. It is not liberal v conservative. It is nothing but evil showing its face.

  • SeniorD

    Why is it that the hypocrtical Congressional Marxists and Hamiltonians rush to the nearest camera and scream about gun control when a holocaust like Sandy Hook occurs? For that matter, why do they have to wait for some hienous crime to occur when places like Chicago (home to the Marxists Alinsky, Soetoro-Obama and Rodham-Clinton), the Royal City of Washington, Trenton, Detoit, Los Angeles and NYC are swimming in Black on Black murder? The daily murder toll in just one of those cities exceeds Sandy Hook more often than not.

  • Arthur Carlson

    Totally sick of the Orwellian language the D’s use. Any one who knows rifles knows that a .223 is not a high powered rifle. My lever action 30/30 probably has twice the stopping power of a .223 and lets not even talk about probably the most popular hunting cartridge, 30.06, now that is a high powered cartridge. My point is not to compare cartridges so much as to decry the lies that come from the left.

    ‘Assault’ weapons are already banned in Connecticut, you fascist phucks.

  • They simply do not want you to be able to load ammo into a magazine. This is going to be a grassroots fight as the left has always wanted gun control. The right most likely will have no backbone when the left starts talking about whether we want another Newtown or not. We already know where the media stands. So the pro-gun people of this country better be ready to fight for their rights or this too will be taken away from us.

    I don’t like guns and don’t have one. However, as we all know, give in to the dims on assault rifles and they will come back for another type of gun and then another and so on. Their goal is to disarm us and they don’t even try to hide it. What really chaps me is they say they are doing this for the public safety when they have to know an unarmed populace is a vulnerable populace. So that rhetoric is pure bunk. The only school shooting that I have heard of was stopped before multiple deaths was by a student who had a hunting rifle in his car and killed the perpertrator.

    If the parent(s) knowingly sought all the medical assistance available to aid their child in being a constructive member of society – the system failed in identifying the nature of this mind.
    If the parent(s), without medical advice, knew their child possessed tendencies that may be manifested in this way- the failure was in the belief they possessed the skill to control his actions.
    The weapons used were of convenience. But if we are to believe the information concerning the intellect of Lanza, in the absence of such weaponry he may well have devised a method of destruction much greater than the one he employed…

    The focus should not concentrate on the method, but more the mind behind it.

    A crimanologist said this morning that mass murder in this country had NOT increased. It peaked in 1929..then rose from 1960 to the 1990’s, and was actually lower in the 2000’s.

    He pointed out that we know instantly about all of the things that happen now. We hear from all over the country, indeed the world within minutes. But things were bad many years ago. Guns have nothing to do with it. If someone wants to mass murder, they will.

    To save ourselves, we need our guns!! They have saved more people than they have done evil.

    Senator exits MILCON following Metro exposé, vet-care scandal

    [Feinstein abandoned MILCON as her ethical problems were surfacing
    in the media, and as it was becoming clear that her subcommittee
    left grievously wounded veterans to rot while her family was profiting
    from the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. It turns out that Blum
    also holds large investments in companies that were selling medical
    equipment and supplies and real estate leases—often without the
    benefit of competitive bidding—to the Department of Veterans Affairs,
    even as the system of medical care for veterans collapsed on his wife’s
    watch.

    As of December 2006, according to SEC filings and three corporations
    in which Blum’s financial entities own a total of $1 billion in stock won
    considerable favor from the budgets of the Department of Defense and
    the Department of Veterans Affairs:

    Boston Scientific Corporation: $17.8 million for medical equipment
    and supplies; 85 percent of contracts awarded without benefit of
    competition.

    Kinetic Concepts Inc.: $12 million, medical equipment
    and supplies; 28 percent noncompetitively awarded.

    From the Clackamas mall shooting…

    Meli, who has a concealed carry permit, positioned himself behind a pillar.

    “He was working on his rifle,” said Meli. “He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side.”

    The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter.

    “As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said.

    Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision.

    “I’m not beating myself up cause I didn’t shoot him,” said Meli. “I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.”

    I want a ban on Deficit spending by congress. I vote for a bill demanding balanced budgets or no congress critter gets paid or any benefits including pensions.

    That should be easy for any idiot with an ounce of common sense should agree to right ?

    If they ban guns then I say they no longer can have armed bodyguards, security guards at the capital or whitehouse etc. None for their families or workplace.

    Screw these Natzis

    as I posted on another thread.

    I would say a variety of things have changed in todays society….

    1. Fewer people attend church of any sort and removing it from the public school, square etc. again just one part of a complicated issue.

    2. Break up of family. 46% Divorce rates in the US and higher among African Americans and poor people as a whole. Far too many kids having kids and far to many fathers who are not involved in those kids lives.

    3. Welfare of all sorts have made being lazy, stupid and dependent no longer looked at as bad or embarrassing but accepted and a away of life. Free stuff for anyone because they breathe.

    4. Drugs: pot, coke, meth and others are glorified, and few learn from high profile deaths and believe they can handle it.

    5. Strength of those drugs and their addiction capacity is much higher.

    6. Schools spend more time teaching political correct issues, green junk science etc rather than personal responsibility, manners, self reliance and common sense.

    7. Social media, internet, mass media and instant news make these kids household names and in a sick way almost glorify their sick deeds and actions. It also shows other sick/ mentally deficient kids what others are doing and more easily show them how they can copy or emmulate them.

    8. Culture: Movies and TV have more blood, guts, gore and vilolence than ever. Stallone, Arnold and others show hundreds being killed in a 90 minute movie or hour long cop series. They are much more graphic than ever. Movies like Kill Bill and Die Hard and many many other make hollywood movie makers and actors rich beyond belief. Notice they mostly have guns as well asarmed protection or armed guards. Same goes for our idiot politicians who break more laws and are more immoral in many cases than the average citizen. No budgets and spending trillions in debt for instance show bad examples of how to live life.

    9. Rap music continues to glorify violence against cops, women and others. They get filthy rich doing it with little or no real talent or real work put into it. This week saw Michelle Malkin threated with violence and extremely graphic, vulgar tweets by supporters of rap star The Game ????? ( never heard of the idiot)

    10 Athletes who are often times dumber than mud fences get rich and glorified and then are rarely held accountable by others when they shoot, kill, use drugs, drive drunk etc etc etc and if they go to jail are hired again and paid big money. In urban cultures the more criminal behavior the more street cred they have and more money they make.

    11. Violent video games have exploded literally. Call of Duty and others basically have the main goal of blowing away as many as possible in a short time in graphic, realistic virtual reality typ games. These are more than likely in every mass murderers history. They blurr the reality and desensitize those kids who are emotionally immature, damaged, stunted or just plain ill or evil. They always seem to be some young guy who cant seem to handle or process his emotions, dillusions,
    bullying, teasing, physical differences in body type, or perceived attractiveness or coolness.

    12. Mental illness clinics and hospitals have had cuts in funding and put more people on the street or never get them the help at all. Again many of these mass killers are first time offenders who never have shown any real signs that say hey Im gonna kill alot of people except where they have posted online without revealing who or wear they are and unseen until after they have done so.

    13. Most are suicidal in some way and are more often seeing others doing these things on tv/ news etc and are seeing this as an acceptible way of going out.

    14. Schools and other public areas are no gun zones and there is rarely any deterrent or answer to stopping this in the few minutes it takes for them to do their damage. Most have taken 10-20 minutes and thats before the police could ever respond.

    15. Lack of training in schools on how to respond. Columbine teacher put kids in the GLASS enclosed library where they were visible for the two insane kids to see and target instead of going into a closed more secluded office.

    16. Little, none or unarmed security…AKA the guy who runs away from an armed intruder with the others. If 2-5 of those priciples, teachers etc had had a CCW they may have been able to save or even deter these kids from going there.

    Schools are poorly secured( not surprisingly)

    18. We blame guns and the NRA but few if any of these kids are NRA members, trained, or interested in following the laws already in place.

    19. Every one of these kids is Young, emotionally whacked, unable to handle his feelings and rarely reported to authorities as being a potential danger to himself or others. They are socially awkward, teased, bullied, austracised, a loner with few if any close friends, many on some psycho type drug or drugs etc. Rarely are they older men who have gotten past the lunacy that is youth for some kids. They have no real job or religious or politicall beliefs. They are rarely popular, may feel unattractive, and areoften from a broken home and have parents who are more worried about their divorce and its issues than they are about their kids and their welfare.

    20. The vast majority of other murders in which 1-4 people are killed are a result of domestic violence, drugs, gangs, illegal aliens/ gangs/ drugs and inner city illegal activity and cultural rot. These kids are rarely well educated, rarely have a father in their life. The inner city/ african american youth are made fun of and called uncle toms or race traitors if they learn to speak proper English, get good grades, dont have tattos everywhere, dont have premature sex or even kids out of wedlock. The mother always comes out after they are shot or do the shooting claiming he is a great boy, never done nothing wrong, or was just getting his life turned around. When in actuality they have a wrap sheet an arms length long. How many you tube videos do we have with black youths doing flash mobs ransacking some store and never being arrested for it?

    Who are they kidding? Anyone knows that these same 28 people could have been killed just as easily with a couple .22 pistols or a pump action shotgun … or a bomb or a baseball bat for that matter. This knee-jerk rush to pass anti-gun legislation has nothing to do with banning “assault weapons” or protecting children, and everything to do with eliminating our right to bear arms and the Second Amendment in it’s entirety.

    Make no mistake … banning “assault weapons” would simply be step one in the progressive liberals’ lifelong dream plan to eliminate all guns, and they will be the first ones to tell you that. If they happen to succeed in banning a certain list of “assault weapons”, they will immediately begin working on broadening the definition of “assault weapon” until it encompasses all guns. I know that, you know that, they know that, and anyone who DOESN’T know that is a complete moron …

    We all knew there would be a push for gun control when Obama was elected, and Fast and Furious was our first insight into just how far these people were willing to go to achieve their goal. Now I’m left wondering if we’ve grossly underestimated them. These shootings are playing right into their hand, and although I’m not prone to getting caught up in conspiracy theories, it sure seems awful coincidental that all this mayhem has broken loose during Obama’s Presidency. If, now that he’s secured four years of consequence-free governance, we see a sudden uptick in heartbreaking incidents like this, it will be difficult not to conclude that there is some sort of connection. We already established that there are plenty of people in this administration who would embrace a string of tragedies like this if it would serve to advance their anti-gun agenda.

    Rest assured, all eyes are going to be on these people now, looking for any link between them and this recent string of shootings. They’d better hope they don’t have anything to do with them, because if they do, the backlash they suffer will be severe.

    I certainly hope that this IS all just coincidence though, and that calmer minds will prevail in this rush to blame guns for this senseless violence, However, I’m not holding my breath at this point. I fully expect this administration to use these tragedies as a platform to launch an all-out assault on the Second Amendment, regardless of whether they’ve had anything to do with them or not…

    When liberals start caring about the wholesale killing of babies and protecting the mentally ill and the public, then maybe I could at least not call them hypocrites. We aren’t going to roll over and give up our guns. These people don’t even know what the Constitution is all about and just why it was written. Why don’t they all go live in Europe and live there with the failures of socialism and marxism? Why destroy the US?

    Liberals don’t believe that an unborn baby is a human being. Some even go as far as to say that if they can’t feed themselves they aren’t yet a person.

    The mentally ill will be dealt with once liberals get a grip on identifying them genetically. They’ll argue until they’re blue in the face that homosexuality is genetic, but what happens when they actually find the “gene?” It isn’t genetic but it sure would put liberals schizophrenic principles to the test.

    They point at the constitution and say “I don’t care about that.” The reason they don’t care about “that” is twofold: the white guilt, holier than thou, bending over backward, fake love of black people. Liberals are afraid of black people and think they’re stupid. And second is the fact that the constitution doesn’t specifically support abortion.

    Yes, they are that dumb.

    Yes, diane feinstein the sprinkled confirmed roman catholic is promising more gun control and the killing of innocent people just like her roman catholic counterparts in history who passed the SAME EXACT gun control laws we have now. Those roman catholic counterparts would be Adolf Hitler, Joe Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Fidel Castro et al who are responsible for the deaths of more than 50 million people (what’s 28 more anyways??).

    It seems when you stupid roman catholics show up anywhere, anytime with your vaticanus and sinaiticus manuscripts the whole world goes back to the dark ages. Or at least that is what PAST history shows.

    120 wars in 60 years sponsored by the Roman Catholic led UN. 2 wars every year, 1 war every 6 months. Nice “peace-keeping” forces Rome. Bloody friggin killers.

    1979 Mental Health Reform Act

    via NYT – October 30, 1984

    HOW RELEASE OF MENTAL PATIENTS BEGAN

    [They’ve Gone Far, Too Far’

    In California, for example, the number of patients in state mental hospitals reached a peak of 37,500 in 1959 when Edmund G. Brown was Governor, fell to 22,000 when Ronald Reagan attained that office in 1967, and continued to decline under his administration and that of his successor, Edmund G. Brown Jr. The senior Mr. Brown now expresses regret about the way the policy started and ultimately evolved. ”They’ve gone far, too far, in letting people out,” he said in an interview.

    Dr. Robert H. Felix, who was then director of the National Institute of Mental Health and a major figure in the shift to community centers, says now on reflection: ”Many of those patients who left the state hospitals never should have done so. We psychiatrists saw too much of the old snake pit, saw too many people who shouldn’t have been there and we overreacted. The result is not what we intended, and perhaps we didn’t ask the questions that should have been asked when developing a new concept, but psychiatrists are human, too, and we tried our damnedest.”]

    Electronic Journal of Sociology (1998)

    Ronald Reagan and the Commitment of the Mentally Ill:
    Capital, Interest Groups, and the Eclipse of Social Policy

    [Abstract

    Conventional wisdom suggests that the reduction of funding for social welfare policies during the 1980s is the result of a conservative backlash against the welfare state. With such a backlash, it should be expected that changes in the policies toward involuntary commitment of the mentally ill reflect a generally conservative approach to social policy more generally. In this case, however, the complex of social forces that lead to less restrictive guidelines for involuntary commitment are not the result of conservative politics per se, but rather a coalition of fiscal conservatives, law and order Republicans, relatives of mentally ill patients, and the practitioners working with those patients. Combined with a sharp rise in homelessness during the 1980s, Ronald Reagan pursued a policy toward the treatment of mental illness that satisfied special interest groups and the demands of the business community, but failed to address the issue: the treatment of mental illness

    [..]

    The concerns of the general public were also mobilized in the context of fear over the possibility of a patient committing a violent or otherwise anti-social act. Media attention paid to the problems of the mental health system tended to concentrate in two areas: the growing homelessness problem of the early 1980s and the possibility of criminal acts committed by deinsitutionalized patients. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, hundreds of thousands of mentally ill people concentrated in the inner cities. With the rise of gentrification during the 1980s, many of them became displaced from their relatively affordable housing and were unable to fin d new accommodations. Many of these patients had lost contact with family members and were unable to work, and many did not have health insurance. Thus, they were unable to receive mental health services in the private sector. Media coverage of the growin g homeless problem helped to pressure legislators in many states to rewrite commitment laws to extend the net and make the streets “safer.”

    This media attention played into, and supported, the growing perception of violent crime as a problem in the United States. The Reagan Administration answered this general alarm by calling for quick and severe punishment of offenders. For those offenders who were not mentally ill, prison was normally seen as the solution (Gans, 1995). For the mentally ill however, involuntary committment seemed the best answer. Either way, quick removal of individuals threatening the social order fit well with the administration’s “law and order” stance (LaFond and Durham, 1992, 114).

    The new laws, however, were not intended to make it easier to commit the dangerous mentally ill. Rather, the new laws had more general application and made it easier to commit those only considered a threat (Lafond & Durham, 1992, 118). In addition to this, many of the existing liberal justices began to rule on a “right of treatment” clause rather than a straight civil libertarian viewpoint. The result was that at both the state and federal level, the court became increasingly reluctant to strike down legislation that broadened the definition of who was eligible for involuntary commitment (119). Again, this more stringent approach meshed well with the “law and order” stance taken by the administration.]

    Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say

    [Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed
    because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending their lives is
    no different to abortion, a group of medical ethicists linked to
    Oxford University has argued.]

    March 03, 2012

    Throwing down the gauntlet

    [Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential
    persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly
    are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’
    in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’.

    “We take ‘person’ to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived of this existence represents a loss to her.”

    As such they argued it was “not possible to damage a newborn by
    preventing her from developing the potentiality to become a person
    in the morally relevant sense”.]

    March 12, 2012

    The pro-choice case for infanticide.

    [When circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. … We propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than to that of a child. Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be. Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk.]

    Congresswoman: We’re Not ‘Promoting Sterilization’
    of College Girls, We’re Just Making It Free, 3/19/12

    [Rep. Schakowsky said:“You know, this attack on women’s health care is–I think the compromise that the president has offered and that the rulemaking from HHS, I think, is a good one. This is not about, you know, college-age girls getting sterilization when they want it–no.”

    “I mean, there may be situations where for medical reasons and
    in consultation with the doctor that sterilization procedures are
    warranted for the health of a young woman,” said Schakowsky.

    “Contraception and related procedures, contraception was declared one of the top 10 preventive health services of the 20th century by the Centers for Disease Control,” said Schakowsky, “and the reason for these regulations is to protect the health of women, women of all ages, so that they can afford to get the preventive care that they need.”]

    When people start to realize, understand this is NOT about saving lives, reducing crime. It is about disarming the American population to a status that will not be able to fight back. That this country will be infiltrated when they are reduced to sling shots. If you half witted people do not get that by now, nothing will make up your mind until it happens.

    @ #57
    Who are the terrorists ? Why not go find out who the heck they are that are targeting our kids, young adults and making them into killers. There you will find who the terrorists are. I am sick of people like you trying to sway this crisis and others like it when the proof is there before you. In no other time has this nation fallen to so many mass, lone gunman attacks then now. 13-15 in one year. This is over the top and way more then anyone at any time before has seen or beared. When we are starting to eat our own and agendas are on the table look to the ones that are moving the agenda and forcing these policies down the people’s throats. Look to the very same people that may be behind these brutal acts that have taken this nation by storm over these past few years. When you have less that die from this insane act then you do from drunk driving, malpractice, drugs, obesity and other causes you come back here and tell me we need to outlaw all of the above. I see no gain from taking away citizens protection other then to enslave them to an over reaching government that is hell bent on controlling you and ushering in a new rule of law without resistance. So you take your sorry, tune and peddle it all you want but the truth is the truth. Facts are facts and you and no one else can alter any of it. The people are finally getting on to what is truly happening and they will not allow it to happen. When these so called politicians want this and try to pass this, let them be the first to give it up. Unarm every last one of their protections, their body guards and their 24/7 protections that sit outside their homes, walk them to and from work and sit quietly as they dine, shop and entertain. It is then that we as a nation will then begin to talk about giving up our arms and turning them into a heap of recycled metal. I am ashamed that anyone cannot see through this for what it is and what the intent is and the end result will be. Yes these people died for a cause that millions do not agree with. But, remember these people did not cause this, did not do this crime. It was the people that wanted a law, wanted an agenda and wanted to enslave the people. They who caused this horrific crime that we are now forced to suffer. May God watch over this nation, protect the people from the savages that live without him in their life..
