That a law-abiding woman who owned a gun was killed by her maniac son?
This is justification for gun control?
Who dat said dat? Not me.
The point was that had there been a ban on semis and hi cap clips Adam Lanza's mother would not have had these deadly weapons, therefore he could not have used these weapons to kill the chikdren and adults.
How can their motives be truly be found since all but one were killed or committed suicide?
We will never know with complete assurance the motivation/s that drove Lanza to commit these shootings but we can study his past actions, psychological symptoms, comparisons to other similar events, testimony by family, friends, and others who knew Adam. Using these clues, it is possible to approximate motivation with a reasonable level of confidence.
If you were listening to the news, rather than flapping your mouth... you would have heard (repeatedly) the NRA chose to not respond for a week because of the pain the survivors felt. They acted a lot more professionally than most of the media did.
Yes, that is the NRA line handed out after careful, prolonged consultation with their PR flacks and crisis managers.
We expect that someone who considers pass-along e-mails as gospel is certainly capable of or gulllible enough to swallow an ocean of NRA bilge.
You guys who understand what truth is... need to remember something: GeerAir is here for sport only... he does not care about the issues.
Well hell, this is such a target-rich environment that one can't resist the temptation to skewer the buffoons that infest this area. I've got to admit though that it probably isn't sporting to aim at such an intellectually helpless, credibilty challenged, pontificating, excuse-making target as Gahvactech.
IMO Geer is one of those folks who would disarm the public
I possibly could be persuaded to allow you a peashooter.
while having a posse of bodygaurds with Uzi's... and think nothing of the blatant hypocrisy.
My people carry only the finest in American made weaponry.
It is people like you who buy foreign made goods who are causing the decline of American manufacturing.
His record here is clear to folks who have been around for a while.
A record which has in fact celebrates 12 years of exsistence this very month newbie.
A record, I am proud to say, that has never included cowering behind the intellectual copout known as the ignore button.
We cannot PROVE a definite causative, but the statistics point to the fact that they ARE indeed choosing Gun Free Zones for their shootings for the reason that they won't encounter resistance there.
In the cases of Columbine and Virginia Tech the shooters were students at these schools and there were aarmed guards on campus. In the case of Newtown, the shooter was a former student. FBI profilers cite several factors for mass-shootings none of them include gun Free Zones.
The gun free zones rationalization is a NRA concoction lacking any supporting evidence.
If it weren't so, we would expect to see a more random distribution of shooting sites.
It's only logical.
It is only logical if one ignores all other possible variables.
