They never let a crisis go to waste.

Several Democratic lawmakers called for a new push for U.S. gun restrictions on Sunday, including a ban on military-style assault weapons, in the wake of the Connecticut massacre in which 20 children and six adults were gunned down in a school.

Because ONLY “assault weapons” were used at the Sandy Hook terror attack. Yes, I do think it was a terror attack.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, the author of an assault-weapons ban that lapsed in 2004, said she would introduce new legislation this week. Senator Dick Durbin, the chamber’s No. 2 Democrat, said lawmakers would hold hearings on gun control, and several others said they would devote new attention to the long-ignored issue.

“I think we could be at a tipping point … where we might get something done,” Senator Charles Schumer, another top Senate Democrat, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Because the guns killed those adults and children. I find it ironic that the person calling for a new ban holds a permit to conceal carry.

Republican Representative Louie Gohmert said (when asked why citizens would need to own semi-automatic weapons), “Well, for the reason George Washington said: a free people should be an armed people. It ensures against the tyranny of the government, if they know that the biggest army is the American people.”

Gohmert added, “Once you start drawing the line, where do you stop? … Gun laws don’t work.”

Just ask Chicago or Washington, D.C.

They want to take away our right to bear arms? Fine, then take it away from every single person, starting with the Secret Service, LEOs, and other federal agents. Every politician has to give up their entitled security. But what about the bad guys, you ask?? Well, guarantee me they will give up their weapons, too, and you have got a deal!

The only type of gun control that works is the type where you hit your target center mass.

    There was a discussion once on Slashdot (geek alert) about how geeks can protect their gadgets from robbery (snatch ‘n grab kinds stuff).

    My answer was simple … I told them I carry a gun. Plus, with modern laptops and tablets cleaning blood off is easy.

    Russia has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world, yet it has a murder rate about 3 times higher than the US. They’re also not strangers to school violence…

    If these jack offs in Washington pass some draconian gun law they better be ready for an open revolt. We’ve had enough of their ghoulish behavior using tragedies like this to further their agenda to disarm them American people. Its disgusting how these gutless cowards would send those in uniform to carry out their unconstitutional policies because they are afraid of us, they should be afraid-very afraid.

    Senators Machin and Warner, both Republicans with NRA A ratings just earned Capital F’s from Me. Warner has always been a swish, but Machin probably got rolled by somebody. They went public for infringing upon Our Rights to own and possess firearms the purpose for which is to depose them for infringing upon Our Rights as enshrined in Our Constitution. I recommend recall elections and their removal for Oath Breaking. They swore to uphold, protect, and defend The Constitution of the United States of America. The words, “when it’s convenient and agreeable to the plutocrats who own Washington” are not contained therein.

    every time someone says that there needs to be an honest discussion about firearms control, I ask them if they’re going to admit that the first step in confiscation is a system of registration and taxation. The honest discussion ends right there every time.

    GREAT!!! While this is on the front burner, lets talk about the Fort Hood Shootings and Fast and Furious!

    What do I hear….. crickets!

    You are being manipulated. Do not believe them. Demand a exposure of “Fast and Furious”--then we go to ‘Bengazi”…..
