And as far as Zod, Cantrell and the rest. Your views have not changed a bit from this tragedy. You have always wanted to take away the firearms and just see this tragedy as a "now is our opportunity" moment. Same with the dems that will be howling from DC in the next day or so. Some have already said it. "Let's use this opportunity" to do what they have wanted to do all along.
Disarming the legal, peaceful people in a society will not lead to the utopia you envision. Of course neither will Obamacare, but hey, seeing is believing.
News Flash: Stirs and the rest of the people running to Wal-Mart to stock up on hundreds of rounds of ammo and a few more firearms have little to fear from the federal government.
Who is seriously advocating to take away your firearms? This issue is even more of a red herring than the "War on Christmas". Trust me, you can lower your blood pressure and live a lot longer by not believing everything you see on FOX.
A few realitively non threating things that should happen but won't:
All gun sales/transfers should include a background check (40%.of all gun sales currently do not).
All gun owners should attend firearms safety courses prior to initial purchase and annually there after.
All gun owners should be required by law to secure their weapons when they are not in their immediate possession.
All gun owners should be required to carry liability insurance for situations like Sandy Hook.
The American public should stop being expected to foot the bill for the exorbitant costs associated with irresponsible gun owners and gun manufacturers. (Socialism).
None of these things will happen because our politicians are still greedily sucking from the bosom of the gun manufacturer's lobby (NRA). It will likely take a lot more death and destruction before the majority of Americans people start to demand meaningful gun reforms. Predictably, this site will be back to normal in no time discussing alien abductions, shadowy conspiracies, and sky gods while the killing of thousands of innocent people continues unabated.
