NIGHTMARE: Elementary school shooting leaves multiple children dead

Glenn tweeted in response to the news:

TheBlaze is providing continuing updates on this story – MORE

A shooting earlier today at an elementary school in Newton, CT has left close to twenty-seven people killed, eighteen of which were children. The shooting appears to be the second-worst school shooting in U.S. history, only exceeded at this time by the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007.

TheBlaze reported:

Parents flooded to Sandy Hook Elementary School, about 60 miles northeast of New York City, looking for their children in the wake of the shooting. Students were told to close their eyes by police as they were led from the building.

A photo taken by The Newtown Bee newspaper showed a group of young students – some crying, others looking visibly frightened – being escorted by adults through a parking lot in a line, hands on each other’s shoulders.

Students and staff were among the victims, state police Lt. Paul Vance said a brief news conference. He also said the gunman was dead inside the school, but he refused to say how people were killed.

Another official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still under way, said the gunman apparently had two guns.

A law enforcement official in Washington said the attacker was a 20-year-old man with ties to the school and that one of the guns was a .223-caliber rifle. The official also said that police were searching a location in New Jersey in connection with the shootings. That official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the source was not authorized to speak on the record about the developing criminal investigation.

    This is a national nightmare.

    May God bring comfort and ease of pain for the families of the lost.
    May He bring fast healing to the injured survivors.
    May He bring peace and wholeness in time to the children and the community.
    May He bring calm and order out of the pain and chaos caused.

    May He draw the community together in this time of their greatest ordeal.

    No more had word gotten out about this shooting that the Democrats started howling about the need for more arms control and seeking to use this for their hellish political gains.

    Obama could not even keep politics out of his crocodile-teared filled message to the nation,  and may he be DAMNED TO THE DEPTHS OF HELL’S HOTTEST FIRES for this!!!

    So many lives lost and innocent children killed by a madman, and the blasted leftists cannot leave their twisted, insane and cold-hearted ideology behind to sympathize with the victims families, and with the community.

    They have shown in the seeking to manipulate and twist this tragedy to their own gains their true allegiance to darkness, corruption and inhumanity of the worst kinds. May God’s justice be delivered upon them all swiftly and without mercy!

    Obama just held a news conference where he actually showed some emotion. Unfortunately he then said that he was “going to take whatever steps necessary, regardless of politics, to make sure this doesn’t happen again.” That is code for gun bans. I do not understand people who think that banning guns will stop the killing. This murderer at the grade school would still have found some way to kill those 20 children and the 6 teachers.

    These type of shootings & senseless killings are directly due to hateful evil
    liberalism-union controlled public ed system. Liberals/Democrats goal
    has been 2 tear down our traditions. An effort to destroy God has been a
    goal of the godless left.

    Yes, this is a direct result of progressive
    liberalism. The filth of our society. Leftist are so excited right now,
    they will say, “see, it wasn’t anything to do with are policies, it’s the guns that are
    to blame.” BS. Obama’s hatred over the past 4 years caused this to happen. Too bad for the babies and
    other children that have to live through these type of human tragedies. My heart goes out to the parents and citizens of the tragedy caused by evil racist self centered liberalism in America…

    This has been one hard day to get through, its very difficult to even drag yourself away from the television. 20 innocent babies filled with dreams of Santa’s arrival, will never get that chance. How do we answer the question of why…its nearly impossible, but we can expect this to ramp up yet another round to strip US citizens of gun ownership.

    In such a world, that is the last commodity I would want to be without. If there were a way to outlaw guns from ever being gripped by the likes of these nuts, who routinely slaughter innocent lives, I’d be 100% behind the bill, but, much like the Pandora’s-box – once opened, it can never be closed. Now if guns become outlawed, these unstable monsters who walk among us and stalk our children at their schools and threaten every other aspect of life, they will still have access to deadly black market weapons of their choosing. Are we to throw stones in our defense if confronted by such a shooter, that’s what will happen, if we’re lucky enough to have time to find a stone, if protective weapons are stripped from our bill of rights.

    Remember Timothy McVeigh, who bombed the Oklahoma Federal Building. That nut left 168 dead in his wake, including 19 innocent children under the age of six years old. 680 others were injured in the same bomb blast. A horrible day, a nightmare really, but guns were not the weapon of choice, believe it or not, it was simple farm fertilizer (ammonium nitrate) and race car fuel (nitromethane) packed to the hilt in the back of a common rental truck. A simple fuse was ignited and Mr McVeigh calmly walked away.

    “It must be of the Spirit, if we are to save the flesh” – Gen. Douglas McArthur

    We are paying the price for removing God from our society….how can we look our children in the eye and explain this horror any other way.

    How many people would he have killed with a knife? Would he have been stopped before killing anyone…or at least before killing 20 kindergarten kids? Simply put, he would’ve been stopped a LOT quicker with that than with semi-automatic weapons. I fully support the 2nd amendment, but this has to stop.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nancy-Luckhurst/1512429603 Nancy Luckhurst

     Had there been someone in that school such as a security guard or other persons with legally carried fire arms the tragedy might have been stopped before 20 children and 6 adults were killed.  They might not have saved all of them but they might have save many.  Guns do not kill.  People kill. 

  • Michael Henderson

    The last few generations had to rely upon Church or parents to teach them morals. Society does not teach the morals found in Scripture they reflect a liberal relativism that ends with no hope. If the parents did not go to Church then how can the children be taught. Parents who do not attend church rarely tell their children to go to Church and hear God’s word because it will convict them of their own sin. When John the Baptist prepared the way of the Lord it was said of Him, “He will
    also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of
    the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just,
    to make ready a people prepared for the Lord,” Luke 1:17. That is what is missing in today’s society the Fathers do not know Jesus so they do not share the good news with their children. Generations are lost and without prayer in the Public Schools most kids do not hear about Christ anymore. My daughter and I were just speaking with a 3rd grader who stopped to admire our Nativity Scene in the yard. My nine year daughter old asked him if he knew what Christmas was about. He said, “family.” She said, “That is part of it. But there would be no Christmas and no holiday if it were not for Jesus being born.” He looked surprised and said, “I didn’t know that.” Sad

    When I was in elementary school, we said a little prayer to God, each and every morning.  Then we pledged allegiance to the flag of a country that was “one nation under God”.  Many years ago, that all changed. Our courts kicked God out of our schools; and the weak-kneed politicians, scared of losing a vote, went along with them.  Our Supreme Court even sided with them.  Why are we now so surprised by tragic events such as this.  We need God’s hedge of protection around each one of our nation’s schools, colleges and halls of government, now, more than ever.

    PEOPLE.  Can we please stop talking about gun control/no gun control at a time like this???  Our children are being killed.  No matter where they go they face the possibility of never being able to live their lives, and have what we’ve all been blessed with for years.  And another thing, look at the age of this still young man that is now dead and suspected of the killing.  What in the world is happening to our young adults.  The mall shooting, another young man.  Our hearts break for these families of all those who were killed today.  Our society is in real trouble.  These families need our prayers and support in whatever way we can.

    Draxx – have we as a nation grown so callous and cold and jaded to these events that we have begun to lose our collective compassion for those who are true victims in such events?

    Or is it just certain members of the media and public who love to hype up these events and exploit them for ratings or whatever they seek to get done?

    Glenn’s comment of “It’s not the gun, it’s the soul,” got me to thinking about that.

    How many lives would have been saved if teachers and the principal had a a concealed weapon? A shooter can just walk around shooting at will if not challenged, but certainly he would have been distracted, if not wounded or killed, if 2-3 persons were shooting back. More gun control, more killings. More gun free zones, more easy the killings will be. And the liberals can’t fathom this??? My God have mercy upon those who lost their lives and their families as they must now go through such gut wrenching times.

    The communists in Washington will call this a crisis, and they will certainly not let it go to waste. We must pray for the ones who were murdered, but, watch Washington try to take advantage of everyone’s grief, instead of condemning a madman.
    I will bet that no guns are allowed at this school, as they are always forbidden at all the schools. No teacher is allowed to have one on hand, just in case.
    The criminally insane know this, so, they go to the schools to do their evil.
    Virginia Tech had allowed guns at the school, but, a year earlier, they said no guns there. Look at what happened then. Any gun-free zone is a crime waiting to happen.
    It will probably happen again at some school, God forbid.

Schools are ” Gun Free” yet the criminal comes onto campus not caring about their gun free laws and they shoot the defenseless. We send our children to a place for 8 hours per day with no protection?

    Absolutely!  This Country has taken GOD and Family out of Everything…this new “group” of DOCTRINATED people and kids have NO Respect for anyone or anything! The GUN did NOT KILL those INNOCENT children and People! The SICK “20 year old DID!” These past few years have caused More people to believe the sickness that has been PARADED on TV, the radio and  IN the schools…Take God out, Put Lawlessness, and disrespect for ALL life and Everything Else! I also say…IF someone ELSE would’ve HAD A Gun, he would NOT have had the “chance” to KILL SO MANY! Yet like others have said here…the GOV and the “one in the WH” want to Use EVERYTHING they can to Take away our Rights, to bear arms and THATS JUST ONE of those, after all, they ALL KNOW Exactly what they’re CREATING…and they don’t want the Guns in the hands of those who will need TO Defend themselves when all this Crap hits the preverbial fan! Which IS Happening and will CONTINUE….Morals gone, God removed, religion and respect and VALUES….GONE…Teachers teaching what “OBAMA” wants Not what the FAMILIES WHO DID raise children to respect All LIFE and ALL PEOPLE….this Country is Tainted….now with the blood of More INNOCENT CHILDREN!

    You have no idea what you’re talking about. The murder rate in countries with the strictest gun laws are higher or close to the same as America. Sure, America has more people killed by guns, but we have a much bigger population.

    Just recently, a man in China stabbed 20 children to death. What then? Should we get rid of knives as well?

    I’ve said it once before already. When you sacrifice freedom for security you deserve neither. 

    The 2nd amendment was first and foremost put together to give people the ability to defend themselves from a corrupt government. With freedom comes sacrifice. You can’t ban everything.

    Ban cars? Lots of accidents kill people. Ban bathtubs? Lots of kids drown. Seriously.

    These tragedies are the direct result of 60 years of secularism in the country – take God out of the schools and public arenas – and everything else follows, lack of morality, lack of guidance in what’s right and what’s wrong.  The secularists have got what they wanted, this is a society that’s now reaping what they have sown.  Those families who are God fearing and try and raise their children well have a very tough  job of it; the kids are exposed to so much out there.
    and this is pure EVIL- People, be let’s be good to one another, shy away from violence in all forms, especially the ‘entertainment’ violence in words and deeds and the slime out there that’s twisting our children’s young mind; parents be good to your children; and children, respect your parents and elders and especially God;… we Need to go back to basics; we don’t need new laws, we need to apply the ones on the books…

    on our youth and adults when theres difficult times.And the media needs to stop bashing each

    Our family is in shock with the rest of our nation.  Our innocent children have become targets for the depraved.  Evil has always been among us, but our schools lay unprotected.  Wicked gun men seek the unprotected, because they are cowards and do not want to fight a real battle.  They choice a place of learning or a place of entertainment to do their dirty work.  My husband and I wonder if the staff had been allowed to carry concealed weapons would he have been teh only one killed.  In Florida tourists are targeted because it is well known they are the only ones not carry weapons. 

    We are foolish to believe taking guns away from the responsible citizens will stop this madness.   Only harsh punishment of criminals will subdue the proliferation of crime.  And mad men, like this 20 yr old who took out his last ounce of rage on the innocent can only be stopped in their tracks by armed individuals.  

    These suicide shooters are cowards, praying on life and goodness.  By advertising a location is weapon free these depraved individuals know they can play out their fantasies of rage without interference.  it is time Americans start using their heads and deter crime by harsh and swift punishment or in this case an armed counter attack at the first sign of an offensive.  If these depraved individuals want to go out in glory, I say Let them go alone.

    As parents and citizens we cannot stand still and do nothing.  We must repeal the trend of taking away our right to protect and defend.  God help us, if we do not take action against those who would strip us of our natural right of self protection.

    God has given us all a free will to either eschew evil and embrace Godliness or vice versa! Those innocent children are NOT the result of God’s wrath for America’s rejection of Him! Most Americans have not rejected God but the minority has been more aggressive in their pursuit of evil. We are to blame for not standing up and defending our rights and God has never been in the business of punishing the innocent to make the guilty pay for their sins! We have allowed the evil few to scream and holler until they get what they want instead of standing and being counted. Our rights are being given away because we don’t speak out and force the government to hear the voice of the majority. We are the SILENT majority who bitch and moan when a liberty is gone but we do nothing to stop the minority from getting their wishes! It is time that we stand and be counted and take back America from the wicked minority and returd God to his former position of reverence. We allowed an evil president to be reelected because we didn’t  fight as hard as the minority who elected him! Obama was elected by the MINORITY who are more interested in freebies that will be paid for by the silent, lazy majority! This isn’t the wrath of God folks, it is the fruits of the labor of a lazy majority who allow the minority to control them like little puppets! We need to fight for the rights we adore before America REALLY brings down the wrath of God and I can assure you that God’s wrath will be much worse than the murder of a few innocent children! God loves the little children and to blame this mess on him is just plain simple ignorance! This was the work of one who chose evil over good and we can only blame ourselves for catastrophes like this. Give yourselves a pat on the back silent majority! Let’s put the blame where it belongs!

    It is already starting, those on the left will try to use this tragedy to steal more rights from us. Gun control, sorry that does not help to save lives, if a person is determined to do these terrible acts they will find a way. Taking guns from WE THE PEOPLE is not going to and definitely should not ever happen. The right to bear arms is covered in the Constitution. Amendment II; A well regulated… Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Those that say this is talking about the National Guard are wrong, when the Founding Fathers wrote “the people” that’s exactly what they meant. If they was speaking of the State or Federal Government they would have clearly said so, just like they did everywhere else in the Constitution. Trying to take rights from us is covered in another amendment as well. Amendment IX; The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. Which simply means they can not change the Constitution to take rights already given to the people. Remember our rights does not come from the Constitution, it just affirms them, nor do they come from government, they are given to us by our Creator and I’m not talking about Mom and Dad but the big guy upstairs, though I don’t think they care if I have a gun either. My thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this senseless act of evil.

    He does not judge us on a daily basis. He has a day set aside just for that.
    If we are not seeking God then we open ourselves up to the Satan’s possession. That was a Satan thing….not a God thing.

    My heart goes out to all those affected by this senseless  tragedy. There are many parents grieving for their lost children and others grieving for the loss of their surviving children’s innocence. All of us are wounded when this happens.

    What grieves me even more is the hypocritical fake grief of a godless president who, for the sake of 6 or so years, would have happily put many of these children to death himself by puncturing their skulls with a scissors and sucking out their brains during birth. That is Obama’s plan and goal. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have the same murderous intent in their hearts. His fake grief offends me to the core. I would rather he just sit at his desk and remain “not present.” He is really good at that. I would rather he just leave the country alone.

    I’m sure this will renew calls for more “gun control” and repeal of second amendment, Hundreds of shots were fired so the perp had to stop to reload many times and could have been stopped if there was ANYONE SHOOTING BACK.  Our schools have tried the tactic of disarming in the face of lunacy and the results are always tragic. It’s high time we become proactive in the defense of our schools and that means providing a way to DEFEND against a perp like this, and not just run and hide.  This is really what the second amendment is all about, not guns, but the right of people to defend themselves with whatever means are possible.  My heart goes out to the victims.

    It sounds like the teachers and responders did a great job. As a teacher, we are trained in lockdown. My first year we had to go in lockdown because an estranged father came in the school brandishing a butcher knife.
    I can’t even imagine the families that lost their child, or the responders who have to go into the school to identify the bodies, or the children who will undoubtedly have PTSD. This is as horrific as it gets. God bless them all.

    I
    went to my Parish today and lit a candle for the victims and their
    families. I will agree that this tragic incident is a result of
    Progressive Liberalism and perhaps there are some leftists that,
    privately, have big Cheshire Cat grins over this. The hatred you
    talk about has been festering since the Civil War. If you look back
    on the past 40 to 50 years you will see how it picked up speed.
    There is plenty of blame from the past to go around. Just for
    starters, you have Bull Connor, Sheriff Clark, Orval Faubus, George
    Wallace, Richard Russel, Stokely Carmichael, H Rap Brown, Jessie
    Jackson, Al Sharpton, Spike Lee, and the list goes on. All Liberal
    Democrats. You can’t blame all this hatred on Obama, although I will
    agree that he has certainly been pouring gas of encouragement on that
    fire. At least the President didn’t start making a political issue
    out of it. As I watched his address about the incident I believed he
    was sincere in his condolences. I am sure he will give it a few days
    before he starts milking this tragic event with his gun control
    rhetoric. Gun control or gun prohibition is not the answer. It will
    only serve to keep honest people honest and make the streets safer
    for the criminals who will not obey any gun laws anyway. The one who
    really turned my stomach was Mayor Blomberg. He desecrated the
    memory of the victims by jumping in with both feet making political
    hay out of this tragic event. You can’t accuse him of letting a
    crisis or a tragedy go to waste. He owes the families of the
    victims an apology.

    Since the left wing Obama channels have been castigated for jumping to politicization of this sort of thing so immediately, I have noticed that they have generally held off doing it so blatantly today (except for MSNBC). I am betting though, that by next week, they will all be back on the band wagon again, even more demanding of severe regulations, banning semi-automatics, assault rifles – certain types. For the millions who own these weapons, there are only a few who are wackos that do this. How do you prevent it? Require lengthy psychoanalysis of everyone who owns/buys a gun? How likely would someone get caught in that screening process? I doubt it would make any difference.

    On March 26, 1998 CNN published an article entitled “School shootings cast shadow on Southern gun culture”.  The article was written in response to school shootings in West Paducah, Kentucky, Pearl, Mississippi, and  Jonesboro, Arkansas.  The article was clearly intended to be an indictment of the Southern culture and aimed as a justification for rigid gun control.  Such shootings never would happen in a northern school because of the superior nature of their society.  Yet, we now have Newtown, Conn.  There will now be a mad scramble to declare Newtown to be an anomaly  They will declare this incident to be caused by the machinations of one or two individuals and the availability of guns in the culture. They certainly will not say that it was caused by any shortcoming of the culture in which they lived. 

    Down through the decades the mainstream media have assaulted the culture of the country by demeaning morality and justifying all sorts of lawlessness and perversion. To oppose them is to be intolerant and bigoted.  As it was intended to be, the culture they have imposed on the American public is as vicious and purposeful as it gets.   There is an inclination to call the public to reject the teachings of the mass media.  But the majority of the public are now as one with the media.  Personally I reject this new American culture but I am a member of a minority that grows fewer in number each day.

    The shooter was excercising the agency God grants to all people, the exercise of which they will be judged by Him. Each person is responsible to God and must report to Him how they used that agency and will be judged accordingly.

    God was greeting each of the children as they passed from this world into His domain being freed from the blood and horrors of this world. We weep for them who departed, but we also weep for us who must remain in this Obama and progressive created madness.

     You simply do not understand God or know how he works. To think that this can be blamed on God, or that most posters here are blaming anything on God, is pure stupidity. This whole nation has turned its back on God, after he has blessed this nation far beyond anything that has ever been placed on this planet before…and in response for that, what did we do and how did we thank him – our people have grabbed-up the blessings and slammed closed the door square in his face. He has been trying to gain our attention, but we are happy enough, simply playing with our new toys and to busy with our important lifestyles. We’ve caused this mayhem on ourselves, indirectly, by turning our backs on God. As long as the majority of our people acknowledged this righteous God, things like this do not happen – as much. But as time went by – the more we booted him out of our lives – don’t think for a moment, that he doesn’t understand what that means – we the people – do not want anything to do with him. God is literally outlawed in the United States of America.

    That unfortunate mistake and reckless decision, has forced him to look the other way when evil comes knocking. He is no longer here to protect our people. (not his choice, but our choice) His divine protection has vanished. He no longer will keep this sort of wicked evil from taking place across our land – his hands are tied – until we the people – turn again and acknowledge him.

    Those babies, those little innocent children, their blood can be placed directly on all our shoulders, especially those of us who tirelessly work day and night, to destroy his great name, and the rest of us, for allowing his name to become – all but outlawed in the first place – he warned our people long ago, that if we were ever to turn our backs on him, he would also turn his back on us…things will not get any better for our people, until we understand that plain and simple truth.

    Guns are not the only way to kill. In both cases below guns were available everywhere with little or no regulation.

    The Bath School disaster is the name given to three bombings
    in Bath Township, Michigan, on May 18, 1927, which killed 38 elementary school
    children, two teachers, four other adults and the bomber himself; at least 58
    people were injured.

     

    June 11, 1964: Cologne school
    massacre. Armed with an insecticide sprayer converted into a flamethrower, a
    lance and a homebuilt mace, 42-year-old Walter Seifert killed 8 children and severely
    burned another 20.

    Those who have absolutly no knowledge or understanding of God mostly always blame God for not preventing, or causing the bad things to happen in this world. Truth is: satan in partnership with ignorant man introduced evil into this world. gawxxx is right. God had nothing to do with this. “We the people” have allowed this evil to thrive in our society in the name of “tolerance”. When you plant corn seed you get corn, when you plant murder seed you get murder. God’s name always comes up AFTER the tradedy. How many parents or residents of Sandy Hook gave a flying flip about God yesterday. How many children in that school have even been introduced to Jesus ? I’d bet they all know the history and players in Harry Potter’s life, and every no talent like Honey mini bimbo.

    when I turned on my tv this morning and saw the headlines on CBS saying 27 dead at a school shooting, I gasped. Then when I heard it was on those little babies, and the adults trying to protect them, I cried….I have 2 children, and after I watched for awhile, I called the school, and picked up my children early, so I could see their little faces, and kiss their little cheeks. Something that the parents of the slain children could not do anymore. Something that the children of the slain teachers will never be able to receive again from their mommy or daddy. Please let us all focus on these families, and not try to speculate what God is thinking, or doing. He exists beyond the scope of all of this, and I am sure He wept right along with the parents, and family. Let us focus on loving our brothers, and sisters, and stop this hate speech. Let us all pray, if we are believers in Christ, let us pray for the weeping souls that may be crying out for something right now, and let us pray they open their hearts to God, and ask Him in.

     And someone with a disturbed mind, influenced by graphic violence in TV and film, can turn fiction into reality. People, we don’t need scientific evidence or data to tell us that watching people being slaughtered in the name of entertainment is influential on some viewers.

I understand what that means now, because if we treated eachother like this when the wood is green imagine what we’ll do when the wood had dried up. it’s almost 95% of man that beleaves there is something else after life other than just death but yet we act like you must be a fool to think the such, when even science proves nothing can die still the thought of man has to be to ignore the facts, don’t put a faith in helping and living for others, follow the rulers give to those with great promise…. even here… do you see how this is going in a giant circle? Wouldnt treat your neighbor like yourslef be the only good thing to be put here?? regardless or any religion or faith wouldnt and isnt that what they tell you to do….

    Actually, in China a few days ago a man tried to do the same thing, but since he didn’t have access to a gun and only had a knife he merely injured the children. Not a single child died that day. So, in reality, if there were gun bans in effect those children wouldn’t have died.

    Thank you, and please do not take my words to be flippid about God, but what I am trying to say is that what we do as humans does not surpise the God that made us, even in knowing we would one day sine against Him. He came down to earth, lower than angels, knowing He would die a horrible blameless death, so that we can have a way to heaven. He knew this man’s deeds before the seed was even planted, and that is what I meant by that comment. That comment was about the many people on here trying to explain this man’s exactions and using God’s wrath as the answer. Do you not believe we are Loadicia? (sorry if I mispelled that)… But what I am trying to say is that the only way we can change this country, if we even can, is starting with our own families, and loving our own bretheren. If you are a Christ Like man or woman, then you know all we are called to do is witness and minister and share the loving gospel to the ones searching. Only at our lowest and weakest can we see His strength, correct? God Bless you!!

    God is in every school in the Middle East – oh, wait, that’s not YOUR god, so it doesn’t count, right? God is not outlawed here, stop the victim whine. If what you say is true, then I am responsible for what happened, because I refuse to follow your myth. I resent that, but I’ve come to expect nothing better. The fact that a person in need of mental help combined with a too-easy-to-get gun resulted in a tragedy is so much harder for the religious mind to confront than a simplistic, black or white, god vs. devil outlook. I’m saddened that some take the debate so far from reality. I’m a hunter with two guns who would gladly walk them to a smelter myself if it meant we had gotten rid of guns that were too easy to get. As for god turning his back, if so, then good riddance. He had his chance to do anything productive.

    I am a hunter with two rifles. I am also the parent of a kinder. I would walk my guns to the smelter myself if we could get real gun control in this country. We need to change the 2nd amendment so it’s clear – no at home ownership of guns. Hunters could keep rifles at clubs, under lock and key. Once the law is in place, start rounding up the guns. We will get them all? Of course not, but we could get most of them – and prevent the vast majority of these tragedies.

    The pointless nature of these kinds of crimes isn’t the focus for the leftists who figure never to waste a crisis. This, and the mall event earlier this week are going to balloon into some renewed crusade on the part of antigun leftwits to keep guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. They never seem to figure out that only promotes more of these kind of incidents. The more conformity to gun restrictions, the more often there will be no one able to stop the gun criminal.

    We can analyze this kind of stuff until doomsday, but truthfully the only way to stop people like these public shooters is to arm some members of the public and train them. Most of us veterans can and would have no problem in dispatching these people, but the gun control types can’t envision anyone being allowed to defend the public when police are not available. They come up with all kinds of twisty-turny logic in their fantasy arguments why responsible people should not be allowed to defend their own lives because they themselves are too fearful to save their own hides or because they have an irrational fear of guns. It’s been proven many times over that there are never any police available when the criminal murdering shooters decide to attack the defenseless, it’s about time someone made the connection that the only way to stop a shooter is to shoot them.

    There is no preventing this – only defense against it.

    I understand and agree that the mind of God sees our actions long before we do, prophecy will attest to that, and part of that, in which, what was written so long ago, had to do with the Laodicean state this nation finds itself in today. I agree with you, that it starts in the family obviously, and the break down of the family unit here in the States can be connected directly to such worthless slaughter as what was witnessed today. The disturbing facts are, that those who loved their children and were responsible parents, fell victim to those who were not. This is gut wrenching and what has lead to this and other similar acts of violence, is a reluctance of our people to acknowledge a Divine Being. Until our God fearing citizens among us, can somehow regain the knowledge of God to the youth in our nation – unfortunately, these murderous acts of violence will continue, so in that sense, that is, not speaking up when we should have, when politicians and non-believers set out to destroy this nation from its core…which is, believing in an Almighty God…we are all somewhat guilty…may God protect you and yours…Z

    Man you have much to learn about God and the patience he has suffered through, for our benefit and on our behalf. We turned our back on him – its that cut and dry, and that, after a very long relationship that the greater majority of Americans are completely unaware. We’ve had our chance to do anything productive, to use your own words, but that time has run out.

    This myth (as you refer to the All-Powerful All-Mighty God) is about ready to introduce himself to the world and in the very near future, directly due to evil such as what took place today. Hes had it with our people turning our backs on him. His emotions are stressed to the max, because of our people stubbornly turning our backs on him. He has challenged our people for decades now, to PROVE HIM AT HIS WORD – but we are simply too busy with our own lives to give him any time.

    Americans do not know or understand their long heritage with God, its thousands of years – not simply a little over 200. You will be educated someday, for now though, keep on showing your complete lack of understanding through the childish words you post.

    God is not to blame. If you want to blame anyone blame the Devil. He knows his time on the earth is getting shorter and shorter. He is working hard to go after the good people. He wants the good to hate God because he is jealous of God. But one day God will say enough is enough. He will come to judge the living and the dead. And there will be justice. What we need to do until that time comes is pray. Pray that he protects us from sick people like the maniac we heard about all day today. Pray for the families of all those innocent little children that did nothing to deserve dying in such a horrible manner.  All those who don’t believe in God walk in darkness and are never happy. Why? Because they don’t have God in their lives. This has been one terribly sad day.

    The problem is the nut and the fact that he could get hold of a gun. Yesterday, there was a nut in China who went into a school. Due to the gun ban in China he couldn’t get a hold of a gun and instead used a knife as a weapon. Zero children were killed. So, in China there are nuts that don’t pose threats since they can’t get guns. Here we have nuts that kill 20 children. Having police wouldn’t have changed a thing – this man was the son of one of the teachers and so he could have easily said that he was visiting her, which clearly wouldn’t have been suspicious at all.

    Yes, “God” saw fit to allow 20 children’s brains, faces, and hearts to be drilled through by bullets from a gun wielded by a mentally unstable young man because not enough of us follow commandments against eating pork and shellfish. Oh, no, not THOSE “commandments”, the reasonable ones, like not working on Sunday, or is it Saturday? Or is just because there are too many people “asking for handouts from the guv’mint” and not allowing science teachers to teach how people 6000 years ago (which, coincidently, is when of course God created the universe) explained the origin of life on Earth? Not to mention the fact that we won’t mutter the word “God” often enough in public venues to please him. But that’s okay, because “He” has twenty more little angels to serve him now (not to mention the six adult “angels”). Who are the sick ones?

    Like I wrote, my issue was with your choice of words. McVeigh did HAVE a gun, it was a 9mm Glock.

    Q. What did you do at that point?
    A. I looked at the driver’s license and looked at him. Then I instructed him to take both hands, unzip his jacket, and to very slowly move his jacket back.
    Q. What was Mr. McVeigh’s response when you told him to do that?
    A. He took both hands, he unzipped his jacket, and started slowly pulling it back; and just as he started doing that, he aid, “I have a gun.”
    Q. When Mr. McVeigh told you that he had a gun, what did you do?

     2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and
    pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I
    hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.I see all the comments here and other places, notice ” my people” in the verse above. How many of God’s people have turned away from His teachings, become like secular people, searing their hearts away from God, to go along with evil in our society? Our hearts hurt for these lives lost, these precious innocent lives, my prayers go out to the families of those lost in this senseless slaughter. But, I also know there are other slaughters that happen everyday, 5 million to be exact, in the Nation! They were not given a name, they have no mother or father to mourn for them, Americans do not mourn their void. They have been given to slaughter only away from eyes to see, they are as precious as each one of those lost today to God. Evil does exist and God’s people who are called by His name..where are you, do we not know for each innocent life than blood is spilled, that life is required? God forgive and help us all!

    Of course, “God” aready knew all this would happen. So who could have prevented it? And yet he went ahead and created these twenty little children to have their faces, hearts and brains blown away, to surely drive their parents and family to the brink of insanity with grief, at the hands (actually, GUNS!) of a man he created twenty years ago with an unsound mind, all so his True Convert Glenn Beck could pass on a lesson about personal responsibility. Future generations will be fortunate that the current crop of feeble-minded dolts will have finally been put out to pasture.

    How many died as a result of those knife wounds? Zero. How close does one have to get with a knife to injure or kill? Say one foot, at the most. How far away can an average shooter be to injure of kill? Ten feet, at least. How many more people can be killed with a gun in the same amount of time? Does it really have to be spelled out? No, let’s just “pray the gay (and all the “other social problems”) away” and beg “God” to forgive us. And say “His” name as loud and as often as possible. And start taking “personal responsibility”, whatever the connection to this atrocity was supposed to be. When I was a child 40 years ago I never could have believed how many witless cretins would survive into the Twenty-first Century.

     As a Christian, I couldn’t agree more with this statement.  As a Canadian, I have to say that we are all wondering up here what has happened to the moral compass of America.  American “Christians” seem to spend all of their time spouting angry political vitriol instead of doing what they are supposed to do: being the hands and feet of Jesus.

    I notice a common denominator with the shooters; the children are angry at their parents. The Springfield, Or incident, the student went after his parents, the Portland, Or mall shooting; mom was deceased no dad in the picture, relative who used degradation to make her points had raised the boy.  The shooter Connecticut , shot his mom. He obviously hated her, father was distant. Too many women in charge, need more men to be in charge of the children that will teach them right, teach them with love. Putting people down (something I see a lot of white men do) or telling their sons to find girlfriends — inferring go have sex to release some of that tension is not a man who follows God, we need men to want to learn to be men the way God had intended them to. I had to turn the TV off, all the female reporters were getting on my nerves. When men with manly spirits speak, they report the facts. When women reporter, they are trying to pull people in to feel the emotion, to experience sadness. It is tempting people to hate. People should care, but they don’t need to hate, it doesn’t serve any purpose to hate it just brings people down to a lower level of thinking.
     I have always been fascinated that no one seems to understand the Adam and Eve story. When women or girls ask a man or boy to do something wrong, you tell them no, you don’t go along with what the girl or woman wants. Some people blame god, god doesn’t do bad things to people, why god didn’t prevent it, I don’t know. I do know God gives people many warnings, and they ignore them. There is so much we never hear about the story.

    We can only overcome evil with love. We as Christians have been taught that. But I also wonder why as Christians we are so afraid to show who we are. We complain that there is no prayer in our schools or even the Ten Commandments on the walls as there was when we were kids, why are we not out protesting in front of our schools, Supreme Court, White House,etc. to get them back? We out number the atheists 5 to 1. We complain about our cities taking down Nativity scenes, What is stopping every Church and christian home from putting one up in their yards? We complain about the violence on TV, but do you turn those shows off? Actions speak louder that words, it’s about time we Christians let the country know who we are and who is our God is, not just talk about him. It will not help those little babies taken yesterday so tragically, but it might be this evil act that finally motivates us to action, instead of just talk. Hug your babies. Pray for those families who lost loved ones yesterday and DO something good for someone else in their memory. Pray for our Country.

    I find that in most off-skew arguments, there is a line of reasoning that says, “It’s not A, it’s B” … when it fact, in many cases, it can be “both A and B”.

    Therefore, the two options that Glenn can choose are:

    1 — (as he said) “It is not the gun. It is the soul [that is the problem]”

    That is skimpy reasoning.

    You need to argue why the alternative is not true, namely:

    2 — “It is the gun that is wrong, AND it is also the soul that is wrong.”

    Glenn, if you merely say “It’s not A, it’s B” — you need to give reasons for discarding the alternative of “It is both A and B that are wrong”.

    With skimpy arguments such as yours, the cultural-norms of America’s gun culture are reinforced, with no reasoning for discarding the alternative viable options.

    What makes the United States great is that so much of its constitution was founded on ideas that are self evident, whereas gun control was an amendment that is *not self evident*. Rather, it derives from America’s unique history of having to rebel against a foreign king, fight a revolutionary war, and have a wild west where people needed guns to protect themselves. It is cultural. It is not self-evident. It is a need that arose from a specific culture. Is that culture still in existence today? That is how you argue it through. Not with trite throw-away cliches.

    It is not self-evident, because many countries such as Australia manage to minimise gun-crimes by strong government regulation. Australia is not burdened by a culture and history where the gun played a major role. Americans need to see the difference between (1) American’s history of gun use, and (2) the self-evident principles that are seen in other countries of the world. What made America great was its foundation on self-evident principles but somewhere in the mix the American’s later added cultural specifics that no longer apply.

    The fact is as long as California and New York want to keep watching it, the TV networks will keep running it.

    The only thing that can have broad appeal across a nation of 300 million is filth.

    This is why, culturally, the only solution is to secede. If we do this, we wouldn’t even have to ban obscenity as the networks would DESIGN material that appeals to Southern Christians instead of secular Yankees.

    Worth mentioning the founders banned obscenity and would be VERY upset to think somehow obscenity and pornography gets protected in the 1st amendment which was designed only to protect POLITICAL speech, not blasphemy or obscenity (which many founders voted to ban in their states as they believed it was a state-issue).

    I am writing the day after the incident and after obama politicised this without politicising it with his comments. The issue is not difficult.  The heart of man is continously bent on evil all day long and who can know the depths of it.  Liberals who normally act through emotion will blame inanimate objects instead of evil because then they would have to admit that a devil exists and also GOD.  They cannot go there so they blame spoons for obesity, blame guns for shootings, blame erasers for writing mistakes, and blame tall buildings and the sidewalks below for suicide jumpers.  The are not insane enough to call for the ban on cars because they kill more children than guns but they will if it happens to be an SUV.
    The liberal pols use this emotion to call for gun bans because they are control freaks and they certainly don’t want an armed population when the economic crash comes.  The pols on both sides do not want those same angry citizens to come to the conclusion that the pols are a great part of the blame for where we are at.
    I have sympathy for the families but more for the dead victims.  I know none of the families just as I don’t know any of the babies (over 40 million since Roe v. Wade) aborted  every day.  I am vexed at the ability for people to be crushed by the death of one group of innocents but not the other.
    Liberalism is a mental disorder. This is all that really needs to be said but will not be.

     Consider that the murderer, Adam Lanza aged 20, went about killing children as if he were a robot. Lanza acted as if possessed by a delusion of being in a war, or in a video game. I suspect that further official investigation will reveal that Lanza was on medication, had been abused in some form, and was under treatment for, and having psychotic episodes. Mental illness evaluation and / or treatment with precautionary confinement needs to be made a mandatory part of normal, routine medical care.

    “Today 20 children were killed by a soul” – the news, never. You forget the true victims because listening to them means that you can only come to 1 conclusion. And that means changing your mind. So instead you choose to harden your mind, blame everything else, you choose to lose compassion for the dead. You choose to disgrace their memory, because you know in your heart that letting everybody have the right to carry an object that is designed only to kill is wrong. And stupid. And leads to this sort of thing. Arguing for guns is choosing to argue against compassion.

    By your very argument we should also give up all items that can be used as weapons: cars, trees, vases, chairs, rope, wire and the like. Just give it all up and return to the time of the cavemen who hunted (yes hunted, with weapons) for their food.

    Of course we would starve bereft of weapons to hunt game, of carrying and storage items for gathered food (since they could be used as weapons) or die of exposure due to lack of cloths (which can also be used as weapons) 

    Think out your own arguments before you claim someone who supports the choice to bear arms is lacking in compassion; one person made the choice to inflict harm and pain on those innocents, ADULTS and CHILDREN BOTH, with a firearm, and at the same time in China one man armed with a knife hurt over 20 children and adults.

A great falling away from the truth, no accountability, lawlessness; insensitive to life events and the outcome to others.   My only comforting consolation is I believe they are in a safe and loving place now and forever .   Once upon a time the assailant was one of these innocent children ; what happened to drive this human to become the ” monster ” at the end of his life — GOD may be the only one whoever knows;God have mercy on his soul.

    We cannot fathom the type of evil that could walk in to a kindergarten class and massacre all these innocent children.

     When you no longer allow God in our schools, when you teach children in school that they are entitled-which takes away their responsibility for self, when those same children get out into real life and realize that everything won’t be handed to them-this is what happens-they feel that they have the right to do any thing they want! How about instead of blaming God, we blame parents who don’t instill values in their children, a government that is reducing programs for the mentally ill, a society that believes that they don’t have to be responsible because it is someone else’s responsibility to provide for them, broken families, etc.

    Interesting that they said one of the guns was a .223 rifle, as that is what they found in the trunk of his car. He never took it into the school. He committed his murder with two handguns, what they found on his body.  But, don’t let the facts get in the way of an assult weapons ban.

    What baffles me is why would the mother buy and keep in her house weapons like that when she knows her son has mental problems? When you look at the last few years of this sort of attack, the shooters turned out to have mental problems. The guy who shot people in that theater was under psychological care. Quite some time ago, there used to be state mental institutions where these people were kept, but most states closed them down and put the people out into the general population where they aren’t monitored or properly cared for. I guess it’s cheaper to do that and risk what happens.

    Such a sad event and I
    wonder what would have happened if just one or more of the teachers/admin at
    the school in Conn. had concealed gun
    permits, and weapons, and that the neighborhood knew that was the case.  I
    doubt that the coward who entered the school would have done so.  These
    types of rouges do not go to places where there is a threat to
    them personally!    They go where people are not able to
    confront or defend themselves!!

    Nations do not shrink from
    threats; they arm themselves with armies and leadership.  If they did not do so we would all be
    speaking a different language!!  Evil has
    always been around us, it just seems to be more prevalent these days, and will
    probably increase due to the breakdown of families, communities and nations!

    Time for a quick history/political science lesson. When The Constitution was written, the small states were very afraid of the inherent powers of both the large states and the federal gov’t. They signed the original document on the promise that the Bill of Rights would be added shortly to the basic Constitution.  Ergo, the original reason(s) for the first 10 Amendments were to protect the smaller states from the larger ones, and from Washington.  Ditto for the 2nd Amendment, who’s intent was to protect us, with weaponry, from anticipated abuses of our freedoms from above.  Years ago, an aged Japanese general was asked “after your initial success at Pearl Harbor, why didn’t the imperial high command ever consider attacking the west coast of the U.S.?”  Without hesitation, the answer was “because we knew that all of your citizenry had weapons!”  I look forward with trepidation to the latest round of the “we’ve got to get rid of all our guns” from the lefties.

    I completely feel the same way. I went to DC some years back, and standing in front of the White House, about two hours before sunset the lawn became littered with homeless people. I’m not talking a dozen or so, but literally hundreds, many who obviously had mental health issues. Most had blankets or sleeping bags and felt very comfortable rolling them out, folding back the flaps and proceeded to undress. Some even had jammies – my wife and I, almost forgot where we were, as we stood in stunned silence and disbelief at what we were seeing.

    I come here and what do I see bigoted people who care more about hurting Christians than standing with people in this hour of need and both side are already politicizing this tragedy before grieving families bury their dead. What in the hell is wrong with you guys children died show some respect. As Christians we go to God for comfort but the bigoted trolls here are making fun of that meanwhile there are people trying to understand why their brother sister or children were killed in this manner. You have the gun grabbers telling us it was the firearms fault that this guy killed but yet none are asking why the guns weren’t locked up or even care that there are families missing love one this Christmas. I am for gun rights but now is not the time to be talking to these trolls that I mention above. Now is the time for grieving not fighting. Now is the time to reach out to these grieving families offer support and let them know you care. Ignore the trolls here today in the memory of these poor children who just went to school to learn and ended up getting killed in cold blood. Evil thing happen in this world because we do not speak out. Our culture turned evil. You see killing glorified in songs and on TV. Our culture is the failure today and reading these posts here just proved it to me.

    After these events, we always hear about arming teachers, or theater goers, or shoppers, but we never hear about any of that actually working.

    It is not a gun – it is a soul. You’re right in that. However I ask, with a gun you have the potential to kill more that with a club or your fist. Adding to that – with a fist you get hurt as well and you have a feeling when to stop. With a gun you only pull the trigger and you don’t feel the impact as much. Also with a club you have more resistance energy. The deed is the same – the hatred, the lack of self control and twisting of values, it’s the devils making. However as a foreigner from Europe I still think with guns you can do much more damage in a minute and if guns had to be locked up in houses or in special storehouses it wouldn’t be so easy for kids to do so much damage…

    God does not turn His back on this children.  He is saddened when we do not listen to His Word and Obey His laws that He has set before mankind since the beginning.  Sin grieves God’s Heart.  He is always here with us and promises that He will never leave or forsake us.  May God have mercy on this country of ours.  So many have turned away and then have no hope when tragedy strikes as it will in a sinful world.  We must stand together and hold one another during these tragedies.  Please, everyone pray for the victim’s families; friends and co-workers.  Pray because that is the power that God gave us when Jesus left this earth over 2,000 years ago.

    The left will politicize it immediately – strike while the iron is hot – grab the people while emotions are running high and bend them to your will a whole lot easier. Then the right will follow suit to ward off the attempts by the left. You know if the left didn’t run their agenda like this, the right would have nothing to have to defend against.

    Doing a little math, our nation would have to suffer through another  -two million incidents – of what happened yesterday, before the numbers are the same as from the hands of the abortionist.

     I have often thought that the hysteria that results from the kind of tragedy experienced yesterday, while rooted in sincere grief for victims, is also based in the basic human need t…o control things that are completely out of our control. Are there things we can do to keep our children SAFER? Perhaps…but keep them SAFE? No. The world, no matter how we wish to regulate it, legislate its people or control their actions and movements is not a safe place. It was never promised to be and that is what haunts the people clammoring loudly for solutions to problems humans can never totally solve.

    So “He” has known for all eternity, since “He” created this universe, the Earth, humanity, this disturbed man, these children, the other victims, that all this would happen. Who the shooter would be, who the victims would be, the reasons for the shooting.

    I believe the murderer shot himself so that nobody could see that he wasn’t crazy at all.  I believe he was at war with American Christian people, and that he gave his life in his war against gun ownership.  This gives us more of a reason to acquire even more guns and make sure our children know how to use them as well.  No, I don’t think he was crazy at all.  He had Asperger’s syndrome, a syndrome that is common amongst Ashkenazi jews and their descendants; it has nothing to do with crazy.

    The left are to blame for this insane tragedy in Newtown, Ct. My preys go out to the families and community. So sad. The left should pay for what they have caused. Guns are not the CAUSE for this, it’s the godless evil progressive left and their hatred that are responsible for these murders. They should pay. It isn’t the gun(s) but rather the reckless progressive atheist society that is to blame.

    IT MAKES EVERYONE UPSET THAT THEY HAVE ALLOWED HOLLYWOOD WITH ALL IT’S VIOLENCE IN OUR SOCIETY TO CONTINUE WITH ALL THEIR VIOLENT AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR, WHOM BY THE WAY, ARE NEVER HELD ACCOUNTABLE. For now, i don’t think it’s a good time to lay blame but know they will attempt to blame everyone (who are pro guns) but themselves. We can’t allow them to escape the blame for this tragedy…

    No, HE, has selected to stay out of the affairs of men. HE could easily know, for HE is that all-powerful, its just that HE, decided long ago, not to know.

    Does HE understand the human condition, yes HE does. HE even foretells in HIS book, full of books, that the men and women of this world, are at enmity against HIM, that means, we are a hostile people and the greater majority of all humans, do not know HIM because of this hostile attitude.

    It is only when a few of these humans, realize this hostile attitude within ourselves and come to God, changing ourselves to something more in line with HIS perfect nature.

    HE, also, has testified someplace – “it is appointed for all men, to die once” HE doesn’t distinguish at what age the person would die, but none of us will outlive this dying human body in its physical form, unless we take on the divine nature of CHRIST.

    I will add one more thing…this world does not know God…even the vast majority of those who profess they do…that FACT alone…plays a major role, in the horrific murders that routinely take place across this nation.

    My heart goes out to those families and the community of Newtown, Ct. The progressive left, this current criminal administration, the criminal unions are to blame for these senseless acts of violence. Guns are not the cause or the problem, it is the hateful progressive atheist communist left that should be held accountable. Hollywood and what has been created there ( violent moves, violent videos games, etc.) and the leftist criminal indoctrination that has damaged our children an the entire society. They must not escape the blame.

    Fatuous argument. Guns’ sole purpose is to kill, unlike those other things you mention. That you take that idiotic train of thought only serves to strengthen my point. You are making a definite choice to argue for guns in society. You are making them equal to cars, clothing and vases. That’s beyond idiotic. Yet you are making the choice. That is where your compassion crumbles. And the next time it happens, and it will, you will trot out the same fatuous nonsense.

    The definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over in the belief that the result will be different.

    It isn’t. The current, outdated, system doesn’t work. And people die because of it. To argue for it is to pour scorn on the memory of the victims. It is to be tacitly complicit in their deaths. If you can continue with that on you conscience, then so be it.

    As for bringing up the attack in China – don’t you think that the comparative death-tolls illustrate just how stupid your initial comparison is?

    Only reinstatement of Christian prayer and the Ten Commandments in school and government can stop the spiraling downfall of this Country.  It is now clear that God has removed his Grace from America.  It is time for Christians to stop turning the other cheek and start turning over tables..

    From the beginning Man has been given free agency. This is the case of a person using their free agency horribly. I doubt this was an act of God turning his back on these children.

    Jaamuse, I am a Christian and just know that I do not think that this was God’s will. SO many things happen in this world that are not in his will b/c he gives us free will to do what we chose. This man was sick and had a twisted mind and used his free will to take so many innocent lives. I in no way think God was behind this or was using this as a form of punishment. I do have to agree that there are extremely bad influences in the media in this country for our youth. Songs about murder and rape resonate throughout the airwaves – not good and it does have a powerful effect on our Nations children.

    Don’t take all that others think Christ stands for as what he stands for. Read the scriptures and you’ll find the truth. Christ is love, he would never be behind something like this which is pure evil. I can’t believe there are people who think He is like that and still want to follow him. Please don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater on this one. Christ changed my life and he is so good. :)

    But “He” had an eternity to prepare for it since “He” already knew it was going to happen and “He” willed it. In addition to the fact that “He” was actually sacrificing “Himself”. It’s infantile that you attribute ‘sadness’ to this infinitely powerful being. Does “His” lip start to quiver a little bit? Does “He” get a lump in “His” throat? Or does “He” bawl out loud like a big omnipotent baby?

I was 19 when I converted from being an atheist to Christian and there was so much fear involved but ten years later, I can tell you, God is love. He loves us all so much. THis was not his will and it is the goodness of God that leads men to repentance not fear. Please, please don’t take these comments as Him.

    Who did Christ correct the most during His ministry, those who were sinners, or those who were pointing at the sinners calling them out on their sins (Pharisees, Sadducee, Priests)? It is important as Christians to show love in this world, especially at times like these, not point the finger of scorn and blame. For whose side are you on when you do that? Not Christ’s I’m sure for Christ is love.

    It is a proven FACT that gun control, or a gun ban WILL NEVER work. criminals will always find ways to get them & use them (or any other weapon) against unarmed law abiding citizens, because then they know they can not defend themselves from an attacker.
    areas with stricter gun laws have higher crime rates than those that have lesser gun laws.

     Your absolutely right! We HAVE taken God out of our  schools….and now we want to blame HIM for what happened! What a joke!

Not only do we need to keep our guns but we need to put and KEEP GOD BACK IN OUR SCHOOLS! Yes…we have asked for this and here it is!

    Rahm Emanuel once said….’never let a crisis go to waste.’  This Administration has had gun control on its agenda for a long time. Obama claims he wants to take ‘whatever steps necessary to make sure this doesn’t happen again.’ With what? Gun control?  I call that ‘political posturing.’  Wishful thinking….but let’s be realistic….there is no way that anyone …even Obama …can prevent something like this from ever happening again. What happened is an horrific tragedy. What happened was due to a person being ‘sick’ and ‘maladjusted.’ What happened was this person’s behavior went unnoticed? or did it?   Let’s not allow what happened  in Connecticut to turn this into something political.  This is more than going for ‘gun control.’ We need to look at the situation itself. This is more than ‘taking meaningful actions to prevent such shootings.’ We need to look at why kids are resorting to this type of violent behavior?  In this particular case….did his mother not notice anything out of the normal with her son? Did his father have contact with him? Did the family see something brewing? What about the brother and their relationship?   What has changed in our society to bring about such violent actions? Making something illegal will not necessarily stop the action. Guns will always be able to be purchased on the ‘black market.’

    True to form, the media and liberal elites are calling for the banning of guns in violation of the 2nd Amendment. What these families need right now is not to have their children’s deaths used for liberal ends. This was the result of a sickened mind and had nothing to do with the means he chose to carry out this deadly act. Gun bans will do nothing more than result in increased violence because criminals will be the only ones carrying them, leaving little to fear from the law abiding public.

    If the criminal who carried out this heinous act had killed using a bomb, would we be calling for the abolition of private fertilizer sales? It turns out that, yes, that is exactly what was advocated by liberals following the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building by Timothy McVey. As if, somehow, the fertilizer and diesel fuel mixed itself and then, also, inexplicably, influenced Timothy McVey to plan and commit the most notorious act of domestic terrorism ever seen in this nation.

    In my local school district, we have a courageous school superintendent who went out on a limb and budgeted for the provision of highly trained (to a much higher level than the police), armed security guards in every school. Now, there are proposals to screen, certify and arm teachers who wish to participate. Again, they would also be trained to a higher level than the police. Local law enforcement supports the proposals.

    Would there be different outcomes of situations like this if responsible people were carrying arms? Inevitably, yes. It is pure foolishness to believe that preventing good people carrying and using weapons is somehow a pathway to safety. Criminals who fear death go for the easy score, not the one where they have a high chance of dying during the commission of their crimes. Criminals who are suicidal want to make an impression with their final act. Knowing that there is a high chance of dying before they can accomplish their goals may have a deterrent effect, but certainly it is simple reasoning that killing them during the act, no matter how committed they may be is preferable to the calm, unopposed murder of innocents in the sure knowledge that no one can stop them.

    The school had only recently installed their security system and it was working just fine. It shows just how worthless any prevention is when the person committing the act is able to circumvent the security from within. He was known to the office and, because his mother was the kindergarten teacher, he was allowed in. He began his killing spree by firing on the principal and the office workers. No one but him had a weapon. Once inside, had a teacher been armed, the chances of him successfully carrying out these loathsome acts would have been lessened, as it is much harder to concentrate when there is a hail of bullets heading your way.

    If we are going to be truly honest about what happened, we need to stop concentrating on the means of murder and start focusing on the WHY. Using the reasoning of liberals, why have we not removed cars from the road? They murder more innocents by far than the illicit use of weapons. But no one talks about that fact. And how many of these liberals calling for the ban of weapons are playing Call of Duty tonight?

    Liberals would ban God right alongside of guns. How exactly does that work for them? We are wallowing in violence. Our children daily commit murders and acts of violence on large screen TV to the point that they are completely inured to acts of real life violence. Yet, those same liberals scream “censorship” whenever conservatives bring up that fact. You simply cannot have it both ways. Either we figure out the why of it and realize the answer lies in front of our eyes, or we continue the stupidity of believing that it is not the culture of fantasy violence that makes mass murder seem like a viable means to achieve recognition and notoriety, but rather the means by which that notoriety is achieved that is to blame.

    Terrorists with box cutters accomplished the murders of more than 3,000 Americans and we all understand that the weapons they chose were not what allowed them to fulfill their desires. Yet, somehow, liberals can’t seem to understand that they are being used by the forces who would see government achieve unlimited power unopposed. They battle to remove the only means of guaranteeing governmental fear of usurpation of power-guns in the hands of the people they wish to subjugate.

    May God bless these parents in their unimaginable sorrow and time of need.

    Today is Sunday the 16th of December, perfect day for a Sunday school lesson.

    It never ceases to amaze me when big mouth jerks rant their stupidity in front of thousands, perhaps millions, because they cannot seem to fathom truth or rational thought. Then later, when reality is staring them squarely in the face, they are never seen or heard, simply amazing….

    … basic bible facts 101…

    Roughly 6000 years ago, God created mankind on planet earth. These creatures soon abandoned the very government that would have led to peace and happiness, resulting in all having abundant prosperous lives, full of joy, safety and happiness.

    The world ‘could have been’ a virtual utopian society, but mankind thought better of the idea and decided that living under the constraints of Gods perfect law, was too much of a burden, so these creatures, who were made in the image and likeness of the Being who had created them in the first place, decided they knew more about governing themselves than did he and soon, they completely turned their backs on God and the world has paid the heavy price ever since.

    It was then, that God made the decision – to stay out of the affairs of men…unless…certain individuals came seeking him out. God has allowed mankind to form his own governments including his own religion(s), meaning, mankind was given the express opportunity to create his own God(s), If at any juncture, they realized the error of their fathers ways before them, and subsequently, their own short comings, taught to them by their fathers, these ‘now-humble’ humans, were at this point in their life, ready to be taught by God himself. The two parties would now enter into an agreement to walk together in peace and harmony. The human would conduct his life from that day forward, under the divine guidance and protection of the perfect living laws of God.

    Something this world is yet to discover. That is why these evil incidents are growing in number by the day, not only in the United States, but around the world as well. The god-of-this-world is none other than Satan the Devil himself…but the confessing religious world, stubbornly refuses to prove that little known secret for themselves, and, because of that stubbornness, God will not force them…not yet anyway…to see the error of their thinking.

    God is not, not at this time (this day and age)…calling all the world. Contrary to the thinking of modern-day religion, but, it’s true. HE is now, only seeking out those who will make themselves pliable to work with. For the heart in man is desperately wicked, as hard as rock and unable to perceive the thoughts of God.

    There will come a day though, when all humans ever born, will receive their chance and have their first opportunity to come to the only knowledge that saves…but for now, this evil world is not the place nor is it the time.

    Most, including yourself, will not believe this information, not today, but soon, there will come a day when all humans ever created, will be brought back to life and given a real opportunity to live their lives in accordance to Gods Laws The doctrines of men do not teach this – but the perfect word of God does.

    Why is anyone suprised when tragedy strikes a society that, at its foundations, choosing to live by the sword.  That is not a godly nation.  A godly nation is one that leads people to turn their swords into plough sheers.  

    It is the soul that causes pain, suffering and death.  However, it is the soul that wields the sword that causes that pain, suffering and death.  Remember, in the days of Israel, there were not many blacksmiths to build them weaponary to fight the war-like Philistines.  And that is how a godly society is constituted.

    Here is how I see it they had great security in place their only weakness was those glass doors. My idea is we replace these windows with stronger stuff even putting a security lament would of stopped him long enough for the police to get there. people like this kill without reason or logic you think not owning a gun is going to stop him it might of made him more secretive but so was jack the ripper and he didn’t use a gun and still killed a lot of people some investigators think he even traveled here to kill some more. These types of monsters can be patient and instead taken rights away from people who had nothing to do with it. I believe we need to prevent this from ever happening again by reworking the mental health system so it is easier to get these types of people help before the do something evil like this.

    In a world that chooses not to live by the laws of God, it is best to keep your weapons handy-locked-and loaded. Americas founders set out with the noble idea of creating – One Nation Under God – unfortunately, it hasn’t turned out that way. Things have gone from bad to worse, the more Gods righteous name is stripped from public conscience. Americans, are now free to do whatever they damn well please, but we have paid a heavy price and the lack of Godly understanding is obviously taking its toll.

    Now is not the time to turn our swords into plows, but on the contrary, now is the time to fight this evil from within us, before it overtakes us.

    By the way, “the soul that sins shall die” look it up…its in the book that God gave mankind to use for his instruction in right living. The soul is not the spirit in man…the spirit in man is the essence of life…it imparts the ability – to be a little higher than the animal kind…although, you might not know it, after seeing the repeated murders that now, are growing at an alarming rate across this nation. The soul is the flesh…”Nephesh” in the Hebrew…animals are living souls – men are living souls…the difference is the spirit in man, which gives him intellect. BUT…man is not yet complete….there is an additional Spirit needed, to become the ceatures that God had in mind at the beginning of our journey here on the earth.

    God will protect the individual – the family – the city – the province – the nation of those who walk in accordance to his law. If none found in the categorizes above know him or live lives acceptable to him, then He will not protect that individual or people…and that is where our nation stands today…we have become a God-less society and are now reaping the nation breaking consequences of our godless actions.

    I had the occasion to meet Trooper Hanger one afternoon about four years before the bombing – The man has eyes like an eagle. I was on my way to get an expired inspection sticker taken care of, and he spotted it coming toward him with us both doing at least 55mph! He 180′ed and pulled me over. I was absolutely amazed that he saw it, but all went well, we had a little chat and went on our ways. 

    Those eyes of his are what caught McVeigh. He spotted the license plate hanging from one screw when McVeigh went past him – again, they were on opposite sides of I-35 – a divided interstate highway. That’s what got him stopped – an improperly mounted license plate. The man has truly astounding visual acuity.

    God has given us the job of protecting our children and will help if we ask. God only interferes with our natural evil human tendencies with a loving jolt of spiritual conscious warning. We all choose either good or evil. All of us have sinned. We are the problem, not God. He, like loving and responsible parents has given us all the nurturing, power, tools and redemption we need!

    Well, being a veteran and conservative gets us put on lists by the leftists. They love their lists. All you have to do is speak your mind and be against them. It doesn’t seem to take much other than being of a certain age group that can see through their indoctrination plans. They didn’t get a chance to program us – so we go on the list. Believe in a power greater than self – you go on the list; express a thought that doesn’t fit in their little boxes – on the list you go; don’t take their abusive language and attempts to deliver verbal beat-downs, it’s the list for you. All you really have to do is oppose their wrong-headed nonsense and bingo! It’s on the list with you buddy!

    I have this to say about lists – let them come. I will not be intimidated or made to act or say what they want me to. I will do what I know is right, and if that bothers some weenies compiling lists somewhere so be it.

    I’m not going out of my way to find trouble, but I am not running from anyone – I’ve earned the right to do as I please within the law, and if the listers don’t like that too bad.

    I see them doing it everywhere only zoo06 agreed with some of my sentiments. Why aren’t their more? It hurts me to even think about it. Something has to be done one way or the other in order to prevent something like this from happening again. That is something we all can agree on if we don’t do anything than nothing gets done. Like I said we need to rethink mental health and also we need to keep guns away from those people only. Also looking into how to make schools into vaults if the shooter was not able to get into the school in the first place than we would not have so many dead or none at all.

    Well, that would be a start. This isn’t “evil”, it’s mental illness.

    It’s not the guns. It’s the psychiatric meds. All of the “crazed shooters” were on heavy duty meds, that MAKE them crazier than they already were.

    You honestly believe mankind is only 6000 years old? That’s rational thought? And what is it you find “simply amazing”? “They are never seen or heard”? What are you talking about?
    The last thing I need is another “Sunday school lesson” and “basic bible facts 101″, I had all that rubbish as a child. It all amounts to two words: “Be nice.” Since your education terminated in Sunday school, you can remain in your fantasy world of superstition and fear. Where do people like you live?

    I’ve already got a list with my name on it, titled “honey do” – if for some reason I neglect particular this, my own personal list, there is also another special list my name goes on…I’d prefer staying off that list, it usually entails sleeping on the couch, or maybe in the little house the dog sleeps in, way out in the backyard. So my tool belt is never far away, as I call myself “the master of all trades”.

    The government is probably in ultra-overdrive, speaking of lists, old Mr Nick, has a few of his own and Uncle Sam has the mega-computer working OT trying to check everything twice.

    Out of curiosity, I did some checking a few minutes ago. Seems the US government has become its own worst enemy. Our officials are past the point of paranoid, they’ve become slobbering idiots. Check out some of the words they are tracking over the net.

    plume
    cloud
    flu
    virus
    gas
    riot
    infection
    recall
    exposure
    response
    leak
    mitigation

    So I decided to blow their minds a bit, this will probably activate the horns and buzzers, with red lights blinking.

    The other day I felt as if I had an “infection” – turns out I had a “flu” “virus”. The only thing I can “recall” having “exposure” to, was while at the Liberal town hall center, seeking “mitigation” from higher tax’s. I had to “gas” up before I ran out, possibly causing a “riot” in the middle of the street. I’m damn lucky I did, while outside pumping the overpriced petrol, I farted with such ferocity there was a “plume” that reached up to the heavens making one peculiar looking “cloud”.

    Hey that’s the best I can do, but it should keep the weenies busy for awhile.

    Where do people from the non-believing-world live – oh that’s right Californication, and where do you come off thinking, that everyone who believes in God, thinks the world is only 6000 years old. I never spoke such nonsense, nor does that backward thinking philosophy match what the bible says.

    Mankind is, yes, only six thousand years old. Although the age of the earth is most probably, hundreds of millions, if not billions of years old. Life before humans is continually being dug up by archaeologists, proving the earth is much older than what most traditional religions proclaim.

    Today DanJosephCurtain, can be “seen and heard” as he roams from one poster to another, spewing his non-biblical propaganda, later though, when Christ returns to the earth, proving his divinity…you will not be seen to be heard, as you’ll be hiding behind the women of your liberal group, thinking, you might not be noticed, by this all-powerful God. Something tells me he’ll remember who you are….just sayin.

    “Where do you come off” thinking that I live in California? What have you got against the 38,000,000 people who do live there? “Where do you come off” thinking that I said that YOU or every Christian thinks the world is 6000 years old? Even when I did believe in the supernatural I couldn’t fully lobotomize myself to that extent, so I know the two are not mutually exclusive. I wrote “You honestly think mankind is only 6000 years old?”, which you have now affirmed that you do. I rest my case.

    It doesn’t take much to impress you does it. Although you seldom think for yourself, even though you had (past tense)the audacity to see through the false curtain of organized religion, that’s as far as you took it, you didn’t follow through and prove all things for yourself, and now, you’re a miserable human-being having an ax to grind, because someone led you astray when you were a kid. You do not have what it takes to get past your own intelligence, there’s much more to life, than spelling every word right, its the ideas that are behind those words, discovered through truth, something you’re above seeking out, which is your downfall.

    What would make me think that you are a miserable person, let me think….it wouldn’t be all the angry rants throughout the greater majority of your posts would it and how when you were an innocent young lad, religion and everything about a divine spirit, became nothing more than folklore to you. So you’ve been on a quest to prove your case ever since. You deem, anyone not holding the same low opinion of God as yourself, a few notches below your intelligence.

    How do you determine a truth, ‘God is truth’ and using his formula in proving truth works every single time. How then would one prove the existence of God, is the better question, is it not…you will never know the answer to that missing piece of the human puzzle, because of your hostile attitude. Nor are you as intellectually gifted as you presume yourself to be.

  • Anonymous

    It becomes laughably obvious from reading these posts that anyone who finds anything Glenn Beck says worthy of note is either not firing on all cylinders or simply uneducated. I’m sure there are intelligent people somewhere who either still reserve some possibility for the existence of God or who really don’t give it much thought either way. I’m quite fascinated with the arcane theories people here are spinning about the causes of this horrific atrocity when the truth is clear to the rest of the world, while we allow the likes of you to keep our education at a third-world level. How many of the countries with the best high school math and science scores welcome “God” in their schools, and how many massacres have taken place in those countries? Some day such people worldwide will die off and future generations will continue unshackled by the tyrrany of superstition. And you assume far too much about me. I know categorically how intellectually gifted I am, and I had wonderful experiences with religious thought as a child. But the absolutely cretinous bullshit on this site demands to be challenged, and I’m more than happy to have stumbled across it.

  • http://twitter.com/iTabatha Tabatha Dickson

    I understand your confusion and I know you are hurt and angry as all of us. But please consider what I write with an open heart. 

    Imagine of you had someone who was special to you, that loved dearly and was a huge part of their life for many years. This special person you shared everything with, you encourage them when they doubted, and corrected them when they were wrong and still loved them when they weren’t happy with you. 

    As this special person grew they spent less and less time with you. They hardly called and would give excuse after excuse of why they couldn’t visit this time, but promised they would be there next time. As the years went by you noticed that when they did show up it was to borrow money or they were in trouble again and needed help. You would willing be there for them and try to offer advice on how to avoid problems again, yet all your words fell to the floor with now regard. After 5 years would you continue to provide and love them freely??? After 10 years? How about 25 years? Or would you be hurt and disappointed?

    I imagine that you would be very hurt, possibly cus them out, tell them off. Maybe even disown them and anyone would sympathize with you and say you were in your right. But God is more than you and me, He waits longing for us to realize how hurtful we are towards Him and our fellow man and He has every right to punish anyone who thinks it is ok to hurt there fellow man with words, deeds or thoughts.I was wondering why all the fuss? If our God is not real why are you angry. Why does your anger well up and your scream and try to hurt the believer who speaks. Why not walk away? It is no big deal. We can’t brainwash you. You are stronger than that, right? We are just juvenile fools.
    Or is it because there might be something more to this? That there are forces at work here that are unseen. I am sure you believe in ghost… or possible aliens… or unexplained scientific phenomenon. Why not angels and demons?The Bible says that God is not slack concerning His PROMISE, as some men wrongly judge of Him; but rather, God doesn’t want anyone to perish in their sins and go to Hell. It is easy to misjudge God, which is why Proverb 3:5-7 tells us not to lean unto our own understanding; but rather, trust in the Lord with all our heart, for He knows all. He knows the way through this Wilderness called LIfe, all we have to do is follow Him and He will keep us safe. How can He keep us safe if we slap His hand away, shut the door in His face and deny He exists. You have a choice. I just pray that before you respond with more hate you would consider what is said here in all these post. We don’t like what is happening but we understand we were given the gift of free will. God would not take that away from us even if one of us chooses to hurt another. This hurts Him to the core but waits to see what we do when our heart breaks. Be assured those precious lives are in heaven like all the aborted babies we kill every day, every year. You cry foul yet you fight for the right to kill babies in the womb. Stand back, forget pride and hurt feelings and ask why. We are always ready to point fingers instead of looking into ourselves and ask what have I done. How have I been selfish and abandoned the next generation because I wanted what I wanted.All I have to say is this. We will all see God in the end, whether we believe or not. I just hope for your sake you are right and I am wrong. If your right I just made the mistake to live my life loving the unlovable and trying to walk right. If your wrong  I shutter to think what you will realize in the end. I hope you consider and investigate it for yourself. That is what I did when I was a  follower of the Democratic party and a believer in free choice. Now I am a follower of Christ and a believer in God.I promise this evil is not over. It will increase to the point we will cry out in desperation. But do not loose hope! God is good on HIs promises. He just knows the heart of man and that some of us need to be pressed hard to be brought to our knees. He is coming! Be assured my brothers and sisters. Be assured!

    To me the President is all wrong to focus solely on more gun  control of U.S citizens that never broke the law and to lead in a witch hunt that anyone looks a little different or have a different opinion. One major component that obama missing is the respect for the individual and in having different opinions that we are losing in this country !!  In fact obama is stroking the fire in causing division in our nation by  leading his minions and left wing news media in this these type of actions are OK  to falsely (mock,ridicule,taunt,to slight,insult,discourtesy, left handed joke, make a person butt of practical jokes all the times,hidden whispers ,name calling and falsely labeling ,turning the person or group into complete outcast because they’re different,falsely labeling someone as threat at their expense to play the knight role, or falsely to poison minds on a person associates,acquaintances  or group with suspicion  ) To me is just adding on pile of straws until break the camel back ,keep on pushing or tormenting a person or a group into striking back even train soldier  have a breaking point to torments ,harassing and isolation !!!!   Just look at our President obama leading the way in his glaring miss labeling a group like the Tea Party as lawbreakers,violent, as revolutionary calling for forceful overthrow government when it completely false and it’s obama back groups union thugs,and down with wall street & others doing all these thing !!! Yes I think this person greatly over reacted and was wrong ,but our nation is part of the problem too we losing the respect for individual !! Our President obama not helping by dividing us as a nation by class,race,gender,religion,union and non-union etc so he get a block vote and it’s OK to say anything even false if they have different opinions or little different looking,different dreams or agenda for our country  ,we must respect of the individual and his opinions this what our nation is base on not to be in lockstep with dictator President obama or a certain party thinking or policy !!!!  A glaring example of this thing, I think I heard that a congressman said to get rid or kill all conservatives because of their different opinion this the result of belittling a person or group to no value as nothings ,no rights to speak out  just because they have different opinion,view point,or angle in solving our nations problems!! Question to obama who appointed you to be God and progressive Democrats party as the perfect ones never make a mistake and all others be second and third class citizens should not be allow to have a say in their  lives and their government !! ??? As for more gun control just giving muggers,robbers,burglars, bullies a free rein  in using strong arm tactics,knifes,clubs,more power over & against seniors and weaker individuals ,really giving these a thugs free rein in their disrespect to individuals they can do anything with no cost to themselves  if they don’t get caught by the police !!! Now a bullies think they can harass,taunt ,instigate fights ,push,stove ,threaten,push the weaker person or group into the first swing  if no cop around  it bully and his group word against belittle person or group ,then make out the person as the bad one taking the first swing !!! How many times we hear of a bunch of lynch mob thugs going to the place of work or home a person suspected of child molesting because he look different ,the police say to people thinking this way we have nothing on this suspect ,but to group don’t get caught in threatening & roughing him up in getting possible info when he could be perfectly innocent !!  Let face the facts bullies always wants the upper hands because he known if comes down to fights he has the upper hand by his strong arm tactics against weaker person where if bully was subject to same harassment  by weaker person he would be swinging at the first instant or drop of the hat ,not waiting to be push to breaking point of weaker person !!!  Now if people have a right to have fire arms to defend themselves from deadly threats knifes,guns,clubs or breaking into their homes from these bully thugs who want more power and control over weaker people ,they will have to show more respect for people who can harm them just as much they can harm the victim if comes to a fight !!   We must start respecting individual again the right to be a little different ,example  a fat women,etc come into a eating place ,etc,whispers,arm gestures, comments about whales by thin & trim people , hey the woman or person might be fat ,but she not deaf,blind ,and stupid she have the right to be out without being mock !!!! P.S would thin women like or put up comments of her flat chests??  We adding to the problem in isolating and taunting individuals to the breaking point !! Our nation going back in time now as if we have one very good honest,law abiding black citizens in a town he be suspect to any crime in town because he different,be subject to goons lynch mob,or false whisper of suspicion be make an outcast ,then if this very good black person want keep his distance from these lower life forms(any person would) who he is subject of their false whispers of suspicions then they label him as a loner ,don’t mix well or weird !!!  To me this shooter definitely guilty but not in black and white how our nation help create this monster and  our President obama helping creating more of these monsters with dividing our country and you must be member of his group or no good at all !!!!!!!!!!   P.S to me obama calling for more control just a another ruse it not really addressing the problem of being respectful of individual and of mental illness !!!!!

    It has become painfully obvious, that our nation has lost its way. Again, what you say, reveals much about who you are. You claim to have stumbled onto this site. On the contrary, you are looking for a fight. If you where as intellectually sound as you presume you are, then what you find here would be considered sound and reasonable thinking, but not to your mind, nothing to you makes any sense, especially, if an unseen invisible God is involved. There lies the problem, of why our nation has slid so far of the proverbial cliff.

    Because of this growing lack of belief and faith in God, our nation has suffered the frightening consequence and the situation is growing worse by the day. Broken homes caused by divorce, leaving unattended children in the wake. No guidance from either parent in many cases, leading to the children left alone to their own devices, which in too many cases, leads to 24/7 internet use. Everything from porn, to murder, is then quickly absorbed into the young unchallenged mind and we wonder why are children act more like animals today, than they do human-beings.

    Last night, at the memorial for the victims of Fridays horrific massacre, before the President made his remarks, no less than seven, or eight, so-called ministers, representing as many different religious organizations and each of them, supposedly, representing one God, all, had their chance to address the audience.

    Today our nation muses over the idea of gun control and mental health issues, when in reality, the biggest and most destructive force hampering and forcing the destruction of our nation, was standing on the stage last night and staring every American squarely in the face , which is, mass religious confusion!

    We are supposedly a people who’s motto reads… “One Nation Under God” – in having over 3000 different religious sects in this nation alone, how is that possible, that is insanity at its finest and none of us – or very few of us anyway, ever really slow down to take notice, its business as usual and we wonder why we cannot solve our overwhelming problems.

    Again, the very God you refuse to acknowledge to exist, long ago, forewarned our people of these very days, when children would become our oppressors – well here we are, just as the bible declared so long ago, which also proves the infallibility and the reliability of the sacred word of God, found written in the pages of the holy bible and it also proves, the perfect existence of an Almighty Supreme God, but who has time for such nonsense…or whats the word you use…oh yes…superstition.

    If our ministers and politicians, could pull their collective heads out of their ass and for once, address this most important issue, verses perpetually arguing over gun control, or mental health, our people would be light-years ahead. We then would be directed into right knowledge, where our people can be trusted to treat each other with high respect and human dignity. Then,and only then, one could build a stack of guns, with as much ammunition to fill a freight train and the worry over anyone using a gun to harm another citizen, would be something of the past.

    Until our people come to that realization, that there are not several “gods” – but ONE – our problems will never be solved.

    Questions if we see a person who torture &  Harass,taunt,poke etc animals that are weaker and under their control ,kept them cage in isolation  turn them mean !!  We call these people sick and in need of help !!!   But a possible starting point of this sickness which this person learn this sickness from others which doctors looks the other way as ( President Bush call them voodoo doctors) is from bullies who using the same methods on weaker and people who are little different to show their control and they are alpha ,when their is no need to, of their un provoke, of their taunts,harassment,threats part of their torture regiments and by whispers ,and other means to isolate this weaker person !! I would consider these people sick to be in needs of treatment they using same components that are present as the sick person miss treating animals ,but on humans !!!!  Only bullies got is a good ground base connections and not push to a breaking point ,but shriving to break the weak person of any connection to the world !!! These bullies could be  the carriers of this sickness just as not badly infected with this deadly sickness as weak person !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????????//

If no one made them crazy freaks like this wouldn’t be able to get them. The killer is the one responsible for this. Easy access to guns just made the outcome a lot worse. If disarming the American public saves 3 lives over 20 years it was time well spent. Constitutions can be amended.

    blame God for it, God didn’t do it. Everyone has a free agency to choose
    for themselves how they are going to
    act, whether it be good or evil. God cannot interfere with that free
    agency, he cannot make someone choose good over evil. I do know that God
    does protect his people, but when his people are asking him to leave,
    like the gentle man he is, he leaves. How can he protect the innocent
    when he was asked to leave? God is our protection and we simply cannot
    ignore him and deny his existence. When his protection is gone, that is
    when Satan is given free rein to do his work. What the focus needs to be
    is not condemning people for we all fall short of the glory of God,
    what we need to be doing is having compassion for those that do good and
    those that do evil. Be his light until the people. While Christ was on
    the cross dying, he still forgave and asked his father to “forgive them
    for they know not what they do”. Morality and compassion people,
    really?
    Every
    action has a consequence and those consequences can affect the just and
    unjust. We have to be careful what we choose. This country has fallen away from God and yes, even the innocent will suffer for those bad
    choices. I also agree that the movies and songs our children are listening to and watching aren’t moral. They are evil as well as the games they play. They think murder is fun, they think all this immorality is what’s in. Good has became evil and Evil has became good. Our society is in moral decay and we’ve let our children down by not protecting them from these evils. They are innocent and cannot protect themselves, that responsibility was given to the parents and adults, which we are not doing. Parents are looking to be “best friends” and “cool and hip” … 30 something mothers dressing like slutty teenagers when they should be teaching their children, not acting like one. Television shows that romanticize babies having babies and toddlers dressing like those 30 something sluts and we wonder why there are predators out there looking for little girls? We ARE NOT PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN, that is the bottom line. Believe in God or not, you cannot deny the moral decay, you cannot deny the filth we are feeding our children. No amount of regulations are going to things from happening. No amount of debating the issue. What we all need to do, is stop this filth from entering our homes. Cancel your directTV and internet … teach your children morals and values, teach your children love and charity and compassion. take them to help feed the hungry and veterans, take them to the park and feed the ducks. spend time with them, love them, hug them. kiss them, tell them you love you and how special they are. stop feeding them filth, even from the Disney Channel. Stop it.

    And once again we’re back to blaming guns. Yes, the constitution CAN be amended. Good luck with that. I’ll be fighting it every step of the way and I’m not alone. If you don’t like guns, don’t buy one. But you’d better be joining the fight to ban fertilizer, gas, diesel, cars and sharp objects, too. Oh, you better oppose plumbing too because those are used in pipe bombs. It is moronic to the that banning anything will ever stop the determined terrorist. Why didn’t the security measures at the school work? Because there is no way to guard against the enemy within the ranks. Nothing you are proposing would have worked and a couple of pipe bombs could have achieved just as much carnage once he made it into the building. It doesn’t matter to you that disarming good people leaves only criminals with weapons. But let’s use a. Real life example. The Brits have outlawed guns for years and its perfectly safe over there, right? Dd you happen to catch th bombings, burning, riots and terrorism last summer? Or perhaps you are dumb enough to think that the cute accent makes them all friendly. Here’s the reality. London is now the most dangerous city in Europe. The citizens have no protection and only the criminals have weapons. By hey, lots of people who demonstrate just as high an intellectual ability as you feel that they are a kinder, gentler society. Isn’t it nice to feel all fuzzy though?

     I clearly said the killer was to blame and NOT the guns. I agree you cannot stop the lunatics bent on destruction but you can deter them or least not make it easy for them. A while back in Asia a man entered a school with a knife to kill. Luckily he had no guns. A knife can still do the job though.

    If nothing else this is another case where a child gets their hands on their parent’s gun to cause harm whether intentionally or by accident. How many times is too many? The cost of guns is outweighing the benefits.

    And yes fighting hard against artificial fertilizers, pesticides, diesel, gas and mass car culture thanks for asking. Haven’t joined any crusades against pointy objects yet though but maybe you have something there. I don’t see why a knife can’t cut a carrot with a rounded tip.

    Lots of American cities have high crime rates too with plenty of guns around so I’m not sure I see the logic. If there were more guns in London people wouldn’t be rioting? Even if they are rioting I don’t need a gun. I like to think we’ve moved past the days of the wild West.

    Lots of people like to talk about faith on this site. Why can’t we simply have faith in our government, police and fire departments to keep us as save as they can? That is the protection we have and they do have guns which is perfectly fine with me. If you think there aren’t enough of them to keep us safe then let’s raise more tax revenue for more officers. If they can’t then it’s a cost of the society we’ve created and we need to work together to better it.

    Fuzzy like a warm fleece blanket.

    None of those things are primarily used to kill, which is the gun’s primary function.

    For the record, there was no bombings or terrorism in Britain during the London riots. To say London is the most dangerous city in europe is laughable also. Iv’e rarely felt safer in a foreign city.

    So you can keep spouting your lies, about criminals running riot in London. It is simply not the case. The police protect the people by and large.

    I have watched very little TV these last several days
    because of the “ misery loves company” media. It’s just as bad in the newspaper
    and in other social media outlets. People want a knee jerk reaction fix for
    everything in this world. There is no easy or quick fix! No one will look at
    the whole picture and make the hard changes that are needed. The United States
    is in a bad place these days and has been for the last 20 plus years.

     

    Guns killed 8,583 last year. “Motor vehicle
    crashes in the United States
    result in more than 40,000 deaths per year,” says the Institute in the journal
    Injury Prevention. In the USA
    alone 435,000 die from smoking related causes. Alcohol kills about 85,000 in
    the USA, while illegal drugs
    kill about 17,000 and prescription drugs killing about 32,000 each year in the USA. As you can
    see, drugs take a lot of lives. I have yet to hear about stricter laws on motor
    vehicles, alcohol, or prescription drugs. Let’s not forget the fact that
    illegal drugs are banded and they still kill United States citizens. Where is
    the outcry and concern from the public on these issues?

     

     

    The problem is much bigger than
    guns. The greatest problem is in the minds and hearts of people today. People
    are the problem. When are we, the people, going to point the finger at
    ourselves? I have yet to see a protest sign that says, “I’m the problem, let’s
    fix it.” What has happened to family values, morals, and principles? Why is it
    the only time you see strength in community is after a tragedy? Is it okay to
    fill people’s minds with violence in video games, on TV, and in movies? There
    hasn’t been any talk to ban or restrict any of those things that leave lasting
    impressions on each of us. We have been desensitized as a nation and that is
    not okay!

     

    The cold hard truth is…we are the problem.

     Where does this paranoia come from? You’re really comparing the US government to Nazi Germany? Nobody in America needs to protect themselves from the government. They are elected officials that we put into office. We live in one of the freest places on Earth.

    The Canadian government is far more socialist than the American and their economy is doing better and they don’t keep semi-automatic weapons int their closets.

    Freedom is being able to trust those around you and to be able to go about your life as you choose. Living in fear and anger is not freedom. No matter how many guns you might have.

    Hopefully some day you can be happy in your own country.

     Yes Sandie, that is the price we pay for freedom to protect our society at large. It’s not about protecting one person. You can never guarantee the safety of one individual. It’s about what is in the best interest of all of us.

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could do just that. Unfortunately, when your society is being overrun by violent thugs steeped in the mindset that simply for existence, someone owes them and they’re willing to do anything to take what they want, it is not yet time to “beat swords into plowshares”. This passage refers to a time when war has been overcome. It does not mean we are supposed to act on this while enemies surround us and threats rage on every side. Our society IS too violent, but it is not the violence of defense that is the problem. It is the violence of children brought up with gangsta rap, murders committed daily onscreen and little to no parental involvement. It is not the parents who are training their children in the proper use of firearms that are teaching children to be violent. But it also is not the fault of society, no matter how violent. This was one sick, deranged person who used his association with the school to circumvent their security system. It is not the result of firearm ownership that he decided to murder his mother, authority figures and an entire kindergarten. This type of individual is sick and that illness is what allowed him to overcome a natural aversion to murder, especially the murders of children. So stop trying to place blame on an inanimate object. Had he chosen to use bombs to accomplish what he set out to do, we would still have the left screaming that it is the fault of the “gun mentality” and screaming to remove firearms from the hands of good people even if we have to do it by violent means or in violation of our civil rights guaranteed under the constitution. How do you liberals propose to do this without violence? How do you keep the next thug from obtaining firearms or making bombs or plowing through a group of schoolchildren with a car? How do you overcome the inevitable rise in violent crime committed by thugs in the wake of the removal of firearms in countries that have done this? When criminals have nothing to fear from the victims of their crimes, they become MORE violent and crime increases. Or is it your opinion that they would simply “feel the love” and give up the use of weaponry and take the immortal Rodney King’s advice to just “get along”? The next time that you feel threatened, please follow your OWN advice. Don’t fight. Don’t raise a hand in defense of your family. Don’t judge the criminal; it’s not their fault. It’s the fault of society. If your child becomes a victim of a stalker, don’t send the police or threaten them, try to reason with them and just get along. Remember, the beating of guns into plowshares begins with you…after all, it’s pretty hard for us to believe you if you think that it applies to everyone BUT you. But then again, this is exactly what we have all come to expect from mindless liberals. Look at the Blaze article about Democratic party leaders who are tweeting admonitions to their mindless liberal followers to take up arms and kill the leaders and membership of the NRA. That’s your side, genius, not mine. That is ALWAYS the way of socialists and if you believe that you are a peacemaker for what you believe, you are more foolish than than you will ever know.

    And far fewer people as well. Canada is not the US. But we are also not as divided as Canada. Half your country feels that they are citizens of another country and don’t wish to participate in the political process. But also, don’t try to tell us that there are no violent people in Canada. You know that is not the case and so do we. What would stop a person in Canada who decided to carry out this kind of act? Nothing. Just like here. This has nothing to do with Canada’s liberal mindset being superior. Your country is no more equipped to handle the actions of a lunatic than we are.

     If all Americans could come to that same conclusion, it would certainly be, the first step of many needed, in the right direction. Another important statistic you should have added, is the 40 million murdered babies this land has overlooked, from the wicked hands of the abortionist.

    I think what the news has accomplished these past few days, is, they have put a face on the victims, rather than quickly fading from our memory, these murdered babies now have an identity, which makes them real to us and harder for us to forget – not one innocent face though, has been seen from among the 40 million aborted, making it easier to place them out of mind.

    1 John 5:3 says…”For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments and his commandments are not grievous”

    The verse above indicates, that by living without the love of God, life “IS” grievous, and by judging from the chain of school shootings across this nation, our people have grieved  much to often.

    Many ministers across the nation, I am more than convinced, will argue that the laws of God were nailed to the cross, if that were true, then why did Jesus say the following, “Think not that I have come to destroy the law (first five books in the bible – also known as – the books of Moses) or the prophets (also found throughout the Old Testament) :I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17

    This nation is suffering damaging consequences for ignoring that biblical information. Imagine if all the laws across this land were thrown out tomorrow, there would be absolute uncontrollable chaos  within hours, if not minutes, compare that with keeping obedience  to Gods laws, which give moral direction and purpose. If all our people lived by these basic common-sense laws, crime would decrease dramatically.

    Our own American History say they work – for these perfect laws, originated from Gods perfect mind, but far too many among us today, refuse to even acknowledge there is a God. So here we are, banging our heads against a wall, in endless debate, grasping for the answers to this ever increasing violence, that has plagued us, by killing so many of our children at the hand of the mass murderer.

    For every cause, there is an effect. By removing God out of the picture, we have invited these evil monsters in.

    “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6 Knowledge found from within the pages of the bible including, the Ten Commandments, they are a very big part of that knowledge…continue…”Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to me: seeing that you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.” Could that, I mean just might that rejection be the problem of why,  our children have become such easy targets?  From college campuses, to high school campuses and now, even elementary campuses?

    “Make a chain, for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.” Ezekiel 7:23 Can that be said about America…yes it absolutely can. Like a chain stretching across this land, from California, all the way across the nation and now to a small elementary school on our east coast. This mindless chain of mass murders, has been horrifically bloody!

    Have our problems become unsolvable here in the States, well, just read some of these posts on this site alone, or tune in to any news broadcast today and see for yourself, the ongoing heated debate, on how to solve the national issue, of how to stop Gun Violence in American Schools.

    We all know, nothing will come of it. Nothing will change even if the President bans all high powered rifles – it will take at least a year or better, to enact legislation and in that period of time – gun sales will increase ten-fold or more. It simply will not work, not the way we are currently approaching the problem. We need to return to our roots. We need to get back to the basic principles our forefathers, who lived by and included, a heavy reliance on the principles set forth in the Ten Commandments.

    Because our religious leadership across this nation teach the contrary to truth, saying that the Commandments are done away, and because our political leadership have placed God on a shelf, only to mention his name when disaster strikes – such as Hurricane Sandy, or the latest mass killings in Connecticut, then its political expedient to mention Gods name in public, but soon afterward, God will be out of sight and out of mind, and business as usual.

    At this rate, things are bound to grow worse, long before they get any better. Notice what the next verse says, from the same chapter in Ezekiel, – “Wherefore, I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong cease, and their holy places shall be defiled.” verse 24  If we Americans think that we have seen blood and violence now, from the sound of that verse, we aint seen nothing yet.  “Destruction comes, and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none. Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumor shall be upon rumor; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest and counsel from the ancients.” verses 25-26  The law has already perished from the priest across America and for quite a long time, so long in-fact, that the greater majority of our elderly citizens, no longer possess wise counsel, and why, because there is no law…meaning, long ago,  we have tossed out the nation guiding Ten Commandments that teach us wisdom, leading to a sound mind.

    Our elected officials will never find the solution they are seeking, because America, has rejected the Law of Love – the Commandments of God.

    The next verse is even more revealing yet, “I will do unto them after their way, according to their deserts, I will judge them; and they shall know that I am the Lord.”

    The good news is – Americas problems will be solved and our people will turn to God, the bad news of course, is, what comes between then and now.

    Well, let me see why we can’t have faith in our government…because they have proven repeatedly that government is equipped for one purpose and one purpose only: to remove freedom and gather all power unto itself. Obama simply ignores the law and the constitution when it doesn’t agree with him and states that he is going to take the checks and balances of the constitution and pitch them out the door in order to “get the job done”. If your way is correct, then put up a very large sign on your front lawn addressed to criminals telling them that you disagree with gun ownership and they will not find a single weapon of any kind in your home. Would that result in the “peace and love” you are advocating for the rest of us? Or here’s another real life example for you from this last summer. A freak pulls out a gun on a New York street, kills a former co-worker and walks off. The police are called. Several of them confront the gunman, who then tries to pull the gun. Yes, yes, we know. If guns were illegal, he could never have pulled this off. Uh huh. But I digress. The police, in their zealous pursuit of “protection” kill the gunman, which I am all for. But here’s the problem…they shot NINE innocent bystanders in the process. NOT the gunman, the police. How? Because they don’t even have the training that most CCW holders obtain on their own. The budgets of police departments are limited to practice only when recertification comes up. Most police departments do not have the ammo or the facilities to run their officers through functional simulations, only marksmanship and then, only in limited amounts. And under pressure, too often, those same police shoot and kill more innocents than do the perpetrators of the crimes. This is not the fault of those officers, they simply do not receive the training. Trusting the government is one of the most foolish things we could ever do. It is not paranoia to point out the things that they have done that are specifically designed to usurp power from the people and place it directly into the hands of a centralized, powerful, unstoppable federal force. That you can’t see this (or more likely, refuse to) makes little difference. Your trust will not gain you one iota. You obviously do not understand history. History is rife with examples of governments that had the same initial goals as ours, yet succumbed to the relentless march of evil which never sleeps, yet depends on the slumber of those who would “trust” their government to the bitter end. The Founding Fathers knew this. They had just survived a war in which the very first move of the English oppressors was to make private ownership of weapons illegal. Why? Because they knew that an armed populace was a dangerous populace to a government that wished only to force its will on them with no opposition. That desire is impossible when the populace is armed and willing to fight back. You can live in La-La Land if you want, but you will lose this fight. Your side is not law abiding. They are Occupy Wall Street. They are rape, property crime, murder, viciousness and lawlessness on a scale writ large. The very first thing liberal protestors do is start chanting, “F…. the pigs!!” In every city the OWS thugs infested, police were attacked and thousands of arrests were effected for acts that bordered on terroristic. Yes, that happened at every single OWS protest. It has happened at every liberal protest since the 1960′s and you know it. So stop pretending that liberals are police supporters. If you truly don’t believe that you are one of them, you are more foolish than I could ever possibly believe. That’s about as rich and organic as the human and porcine feces the organic movement claims is so much healthier than pesticides and fertilizer. Did you advocate trusting the government during the Bush years, or were you one of those liberals advocating the overthrow of the Bush government? You want people to trust the government only when the government reflects your views. I’ve never met a single liberal that could field a cogent argument on this subject, especially on guns. I know you despise guns. Fine. Don’t buy one. But when you and your buddies start talking about some incident being the justification for the overthrow of constitutionally guaranteed rights, don’t think it is going to happen. You’ll be opposed in the courts, in the halls of Congress and on the streets. And frankly, I wouldn’t be advocating giving up guns, then trying to skirt the constitution to try to take them away from those who legally own them. But we all know that what your side means is, shoot anyone who disagrees with us, kill their leaders and then, we’ll disarm. Try thinking. But, if you really, truly, passionately believe in the tripe you’re peddling, then put up a sign and declare your commitment to non-violence. I can tell you this; it won’t be legal gun owners that will be visiting you, it will be a criminal who will be laughing as he takes your life. Don’t believe me? Prove it with action. But we all know that will never happen, will it? Why? Because you KNOW what that would invite. Too bad your side never actually suffers the consequences of their own views that they are more than happy to serve up to others.

    It now appears that the person who did this had Autism and other mental issues.  How does a mentally ill person get a hold of a weapon with mass killing capabilities?  Easy if he lives in the USA.  Harder (next to impossible) if he lives in any of the other english speaking democracies in the world.  Here in Canada we turn our eyes away in horror whever we see this happening.  Then we roll our eyes in disbelief as the gun lobby continues their dogmatic campaign to ensure that there are thousands of assult rifles available for the next nutbar to come along.

  • Lioness

    Do you like the movie “SAW” or “hostel”? Funny, I can watch “Kill Bill”, and think it’s an awesome action film, yet I cannot watch the previously mentioned movies. Something about someone enjoying the senseless grotesque murder in those movies just bothers me a lot. Like the game Grand Theft, it’s actually possible to play the game with out beating people and running them down, but so many just love that aspect of the game. I don’t believe movies and games make a person bad. Some games have a choice of characters, the good guy or the bad. I never hesitate to be the hero, yet some oddly enough, have the inclination to be the bad guy. My point? It’s the warped brain of the individual, not the movie, not the game. Me and many others were not sheltered in movie or game choices as children. I never wanted to be violent, and I always knew that hurting another person was wrong. So consider mental illness as a factor in all of this. The nutty mom could have very well obtained weapons through illegal means, so that may not have been preventable. I think the kid was smart enough to have put together a homemade bomb just as easily. So could this have really been avoided? Sure, some guns seem a tad excessive for home use, but there are some who see the government as being a future threat (I can’t imagine why), and they just want their rights. It’s easy to say ban the guns, but is it really the answer? I doubt it. You can compare apples to oranges with other countries, many with much smaller populations and different moral standards. This country is different and the solutions are complicated, because no answer is truly a perfect fix. Unlike other countries, and perhaps unlike yourself, we value freedom. To just continue banning things, really seems quite unproductive in the grand scheme of things. When dealing with mental illness, we just don’t have a good answer right now. I prefer education, attempting to increase the odds of survival in these precarious situations. Other than that, I really don’t think there is a real “fix” with out taking rights away from the majority.

    Anti gun groups and politicians have made our all schools perfect killing zones!  Signs announce they are “gun free zones”, so monsters like Lanza can walk in with a weapon and know  there is no one there that can defend themselves.  I heard the poor principal at Sandy Hook was trained to confront the attacker, she did and he killed her and 20+ others.  Signs and laws will not stop or prevent these horrific tragedies, having trained armed personnel would.  God bless all the innocent children and adults who lost their lives due to the ill-logic of the anti-gun movement in this country.

    “The Lord was pleased for his righteousness’ sake, to magnify the law and make it glorious”. Isaiah 42:21

    To magnify, means to increase in size, so if anything, the law has become even more strict since the cross, I mean, when Jesus himself says, before, it was considered sin when a man had adulterous relations with another woman, but now, to look upon another woman with lust in your heart is considered adultery.

    God continues talking about our people (primarily known as the physical descendants of ancient Israel – Americans, Brits and Jews known to God as Jacob)- continue…”but this is a people robbed and plundered, they are all of them trapped in holes and hidden in prisons; they have become a prey with none to rescue, a spoil with none to say, “Restore!”

    “Who among you will give ear to this, will attend and listen for the time to come?” – the “time to come” talked about here is the great tribulation or WWIII – “Who gave up Jacob to the spoiler, and Israel to the robbers?” (Israel, is Gods very own church today – these words then, pertain to physical and spiritual Israel)the main question asked here is – [Who did this, who gave up Israel to the spoiler and robber ?]

    If more of our people would give ear to this warning, as stated in the verse above, many of us might rethink our current position on what is going on here in the States.

    The answer to the question of “who” comes in the following verse’s… “Was it not the Lord, against whom we have sinned, in who’s ways they did not walk and who’s laws they would not obey”

    Isaiah 42:21-24

    Give your family a warm hug this coming season jwilco, we who love our children may be running out of time to do so. Obama is not for this nation and in a hurry, the hatred for America around the world, has increased a thousand fold…peace…Z

    Exactly so. It is just not possible for someone to concentrate while they are under fire and “gun free” zones loudly announce to those of nefarious intent that no opposition will be offered. School districts could very cheaply have teachers or administration trained to levels higher than the average police officer, then field them throughout the school systems at no cost at all. Plenty of teachers would gladly do this. Unarmed, good people have no hope of surviving something like this. They might as well paint targets on children’s foreheads because it is usually not possible to stop a determined person if there is no weaponry available. We need to stop acting like fools and worrying about what it means to place guns in schools. Making more laws and further restricting guns is NOT the answer. All this ever does is put arms in the hands of criminals and guarantees that they will not be stopped. I’m tired of “gun free” zones. All they do is reassure criminals that they will be completely unopposed. How exactly does that help?

  • Anonymous

    I’m going to try to use small words so you’ll understand this. No one is advocating body cavity searches for children. The children are not the problem. He’s talking about guarding the lives of the children. Or would you rather try to reason with a gunman by pleading with him? I suppose that you think that didn’t happen. Or are you one of those fools who think that if we just all hold hands and sing Cum-by-Yah the world will be changed? Thanks for emphasizing the paucity of intelligent reasoning ability of the average liberal.

Face the other way!
    And what would Jesus say if you told Him that the law said to give them your weapons? He would say, “Is that MY law, or the law of a man? Didn’t I say to follow my Father’s law only? If you follow the law of a man, then you are hearing him. I say listen to me”. That is what He would say.

    @ the_independent_truthCollapse, In China, when crazy people go on school children killing rampages, they use machetes, which by the way, is much, MUCH more gruesome.  In the UK, they use box cutters.  In Israel and the Middle East, they use bombs to blow up schools.  In South American, when a crazy person goes on a rampage, he uses a knife.

    people have the right to defend them selves from violent attackers. it took six minutes for the police to get there. if any staff member who is licensed and trained to carry a firearm & would’ve been, more lives would have been saved.
    When seconds matter, police take minutes to get there, & they are not able to protect every one.
     you probably never heard of police brutality, or even breaking the law?
    the problem is the person with the firearm, not the firearm itself. a person has to load it & pull the trigger, you have no idea how many lives have been saved because of firearms.
    our founding fathers gave us the right to keep and bear arms for a reason. If you do not like firearms fine, but leave my rights alone.

    Why does every anti-gun kook in this country think that rules can prevent weapons from being carried into school on a regular basis? Gun free zones do not stop criminals from entering! There are many guns entering schools on a regular basis. Not the students; the parents. How many of them do you see pulling a gun and shooting up the schools? Get a grip on reality. There is nothing horrifying about guns. There is nothing mystical about guns. Symbolic idiocy will NOT protect children. Automatic weapons are carried by most teachers in Israel every day. How many of them are killing their students? I’ll give you a hint…the answer is ZERO. What if they formed “gun free” zones in Israel tomorrow? According to you, somehow or another, their children would magically be much safer than they were today. Except that is not the case. The security measures in Israel have prevented many murderous attempts on the lives of children by terrorists. The design and security systems at the schools are the first line of defense, but the weapons carried by teachers and administrators are the final defense and it works. Just because someone carries a gun does not make them a criminal and it does not make them of nefarious intent. If you don’t like guns, don’t buy one and don’t carry one. But I am sick to death of you fools who, like that genius of misstatement and unsubstantiated fact, Bob Costas, believe that every home in which a gun is present will, inevitably, experience tragedy from someone inexplicably losing their mind and killing all of their loved ones and anyone else they can find. Where do you people come from? There are simply no facts to back up what you are saying and there is significant fact to refute it. In states that enact gun control, violent crime does not go down. It increases. The criminals do not deescalate when violent opposition is not possible from their victims, they are emboldened. You cannot appease evil with happy thoughts. Evil, however, in most cases, does fear death, and whether the criminal fears death or not, that is exactly what awaits those who choose to use violence against armed foes. What does the criminal have to fear from your solution? Absolutely, unequivocally, NOTHING.

    Yes Ling Ling. Our schools are under siege from “box cutting maniacs”. 
    Give me a break you sap.
    I can send my children to school without the thought of someone trying to kill them even entering my mind.
    I can also send my children to school knowing that they don’t NEED to be protected by a gunned up idiot who doesn’t really know how to use the thing. 
    Israel is very different but it doesn’t take a genius to understand why – THEY ARE SURROUNDED BY ASSHOLES WHO WANT TO WIPE THEM OUT!

    Your argument also suggests it’s better to have your child murdered by Gun than by Knife. Personally (and you can blame in on my lack of faith if you want) I’d rather my child wasn’t killed, end of.

    Two Bible Stories to Save the 2nd Amendment-
    1. Luke 22:35-38
    Jesus very own words at the Last Supper upper room, Jesus tells all disciples go the next day and “SELL YOUR GARMENT AND GO OUT AND ALL GET A SWORD”
    a SWORD BEING THE EQUAL TO MODERN DAY FIREARMS! Not just the 2 swords they had that night, but 100% OF 11 DISCIPLES to GET A SWORD ie FIREARM.
    This is JESUS VERY WORDS clearly supporting the same rights in 2nd Amendment which protects our 1st Amendment.
    Without this ORDER FROM JESUS, CHRISTIANITY WOULD LIKELY NOT HAVE SURVIVED, IT ASSURED US THE GOSPELS WOULD BE TOLD.
    THESE VERY WORDS FROM JESUS, THE WORD OF GOD, ARE HERE AGAIN TO SAVE OUR FREEDOM AND LIBERTY!!
    2. I Samuel 17:40
    David & Goliath story, David didn’t use a Sword but used a precursor to the firearm, using a “Sling with 5 smooth stones” a early version of the bullet projectile and he even loaded the “stones in his pouch” which was equal to a modern magazine with 5 shot capacity,
    but David easily could have put as much as 15 to 30 stones/rounds in his pouch/magazine for quick reload and fire. He was comfortable in his God’s power to deliver victory and he was confident his skill would not need more than 5 stones/rounds.

    It’s up to us to make sure that does not happen. All of this politicization of that tragedy is sickening, and the people who are responsible for it all sit on the left side. The NRA is the only organization that showed some restraint and decency by reserving comments until a reasonable period of mourning has passed, but Obama and his crew – the biggest gun criminals in the entire world, (surrepetitiously supplying evil with firearms to push their gun ban agenda with Fast and Furious, and then following that by dumping arms on every rebel in the middle east to support the popular but evil Muslim Brotherhood and other equally as heinous organizations in the Arab Spring – which led directly to Benghazi), they are responsible and hypocrites all in one breath. The mindless drones that follow them are blind to what is really going on.

    All we can do is stand fast, and pray that this nasty business takes them out of power.

    We can also help assure that this is not swept under the rug – never let them forget that their gun running shenanigans are crimes and being crimes there will be a reckoning for them.

    Insisting that they not go unpunished, 25 or 30 years ago would carry weight, in fact, heads would roll, there’s no doubt about that in my mind. Today’s hearings on Benghazi were a farce – Clinton absolutely has dirt on her hands – up to her crooked elbow, but we both know nothing will ever come of it, and the deaths of four Americans will slowly fade away.

    The political correctness that has permeated society for several decades, has finally achieved its ultimate goal, which is, the dumbing down of America. Why think for ourselves when one can Google the answer in merely seconds. Case in point, today Bill Whittle (PJTV) discuses American culture of past and present. Ironically, one average American household today, owns as much computer power as the whole world did back in the days when our great nation was sending men to the moon. Imagine if our current liberal trained college educated idiots, had as much eagerness and drive to explore and create. We have become lazy-sluggards and are too preoccupied playing with our new techno-gadgets and partying – Americans do love a good party. Its a national weakness, a mindset that will keep us from ever solving the mystery of Benghazi…its simply not important enough for a majority of our people to keep the story on the front burner. Too bad…but true.

    Soon we’ll have forgotten all about it, especially now that Biden is heading the “Gun Violence Task-force” – Something tells me things are about to get ugly and America will have a new set of problems on its hands, making Libya seem tame.

    Those are numbers released by the countries themselves to the UN and they are not real. The Mexican cartels kill more than that independent truth. Regardless, each one of those countries has had its own problems. Canada is probably the most accurate, but there are many, many fewer people. It is not gun control, it’s culture. Spain and Mexico have both been ruled by fascists, and continue in that vein. Our government has had tendencies toward that vein at times, but the states’ rights and guns keep the power balance roughly equal. We started off this way. We aren’t about to go back. Another thing you just don’t seem to get is that the people who are committing those gun crimes are not, overwhelmingly, legal gun owners. And before you try to say that this guy was, no…he wasn’t. Your gun control would empower only criminals. You aren’t about to get their guns as law enforcement can’t even keep up with that. Your kind believes that in war, we should just surrender and then the other side will take pity and quit killing. Nope. Hate to tell you this, Pollyanna, but that is not how the world works. Force has to be met with more force. With nothing to fear, criminals don’t stop committing crimes, they commit more and anyone who can think their way out of a paper bag knows the truth of that. It is pure foolishness to believe that violent crime decreases with gun control. It doesn’t and the criminals sure don’t deescalate when law enforcement and weapons in the hands of good people decrease.

    The figures, even if accurate, are way out of context.  What is the rate of death by firearms per 100,000?  Homicides?  Suicides?  How about in those countries that lack the infrastructure to facilitate accurate reporting?

    Perhaps other cultures prefer other methods for murder.

    No I’m not really, but neither am I a hunter. I have killed though and would do so again, but I’m a firm believer in only killing a creature if you’re gonna eat it, and utilise it’s remains to the full, respectfully.
    I know it’s considered as being tough and macho to shoot a big creature and it probably gives many of you hardons. But Man with Gun vs. Defenceless Animal doesn’t impress me I’m afraid. 
    (I’m not making any personal judgement against you here btw.)

    If your Government decides to get rid of you I don’t think in this day and age any handheld weapon will save you. I think you’ll more likely need them to protect your families and homes from anyone and everyone, if the socioeconomic trends continue. The same goes for my Country of course and I’d love a gun for the above reason I stated. Not possible here though. There’d still be no need to pretend I’m John Rambo.

    “God given rights” ain’t gonna cut the mustard in many arguments!

    I’m with you on Hillary. She’s probably the one who issued the stand down orders. Her boss was sleeping, and she knew that her bungling of the security was unraveling so the only solution was to withhold help until the witnesses were dead at the hands of terrorists, then the shredding went into overdrive. This concussion excuse is simply not believable – even the regular media are questioning it at White House briefings. Maybe the old sharks are still in play – there is certainly enough blood in the water.

    I think that they are counting on the post boomers to carry on in their ignorance and be happy with that – I wonder what the results will be when the vets among us refuse to let Benghazi go? There’s no reason that the boomer vets should allow them to get away with condemning our people to die to protect the career aspirations of this regime’s more pivotal leaders is there?

    Clinton did the delay and dodge over Whitewater, and Vince Foster. Even the Canada Free Press thinks we are seeing a rerun of that;

    On Mister “The Villages” running the gun ban –
    No wonder the original AW ban was such a screwed up mess – Biden was a headliner in that one too. Feinstein is no Einstein either, so what ever they come up with will be a real gem of unconstitutionality I’m sure.

    Did you notice they have been using the threat of executive order to accomplish the goal of banning firearms? That will most certainly be Unconstitutional – a direct assault on the Bill of Rights by a sitting President! If that does not warrant impeachment of the imperious leader then there is nothing to stop him. He may as well issue executive orders declaring himself dictator for life and then order the military to start patrolling the streets. Then Obama’s narcissism will be apparent to everyone.

    They won’t address the insanity facet of the crimes – that would mean they’d have to admit that Pelosi and Reid are the sociopaths the rest of us know they are.

    I have a new nickname for Hillary – Concussia. It just sounds so southern belle, which is the picture she wants us to see regarding Benghazi – frail and delicate, unable to cope with, “the vapors”, she gets when something she does comes back to her.

    “Why, Mister Congressman, what-evah do you mean by that question? I am surely not going to answer such an un-gentlemanly request! I declare some people are so rude!”

    Hence Concussia Rodham Clinton, the Bell of Benghazi-gate.

    She will play this until America gives her a pass like they always did in the past. Then she will run in 2016, and she will want us to believe she is the most competent and experienced person to ever lead this great nation. Oh yes, you can bet on it. The power-left always manage to believe their own press, and they think they can get away with bloody murder.

    Sadly in America, we have a Teachers-Union-Organization who will muster together the troops, forming a vociferous mob and routinely send them off to aggressively force demands on the local school board(s) pushing for better working conditions – pay increase’s, and/or a better and more exclusive benefits package, but never do we see this same disgruntled throng, demanding better security for the helpless children in their care.

    Today the NRA spokesman called it what it is…a deliberate lack of security delivered at the expense of our children, by disconcerting politicians who, like the Teachers Unions, care more about their own personal careers, than do they about Americas innocent children.

    Think on this…U.S. Annual Foreign Aid amounts to roughly $50 billion per year. We apparently, have billions of dollars just laying around, waiting to be given away to other nations, nations who’s political ambitions are much different from our own. Nations in most cases, who diametrically oppose us in every way, even outright call for our destruction, but these tax-payer-funds, are regularly returned to us, in the form of our solders being brought home in body-bags – Wheres the public outcry for these loyal American patriots, who selflessly, placed their lives on the line for us and the liberalized-federal-government-machine returns the favor, in the same inept, irresponsible way it continues to fail our school children. Why not take those hard earned billions of dollars and use them for the protection of our most precious possession here at home.

    Like “Red Butler”…any decent news reporter worth his or her pay..should reply to Madam Concussia: “Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn, cut the crap and just give me the facts” – I’m certain though, that our ever so gracious Mr Butler, would quickly and unceremoniously be escorted to the door, removed out of the briefing room, by use of his shirt-tail and thrust out onto the street.

    Funny that you bring up the C-130 incident, I was talking the other day with a friend about that, being caught red-handed in such an outright fabrication is one thing – in fact, a total misrepresentation of the known truth, did she forget there were other members of her entourage, who were absolutely taken by surprise by her unwise comments – did she not think that this would eventually come out, and worse, when the truth finally did come out, she still has the “balls” (and I use that terminology purposely – I think it is probably more accurate than her C-130 story…yeck)…but, for her to even remotely show her face in public afterwords….it speaks volumes with whom we’re dealing with.

    The sad thing is…DC is chuck-full of these arrogant idiots, what is even more frightening and beyond words to describe – these people are actually making public policy!

    I realize there are still a few (very few) in Washington who won’t let Benghazi-gate slip from the headlines, but the longer we go without certain questions being answered – the harder it will be to obtain the truth. About the only way the truth will come out now, is for the thirty survivors (who were spared certain death by the bravery of the navy seals – they owe their lives to those who were murdered) – so its about time they come forth with the truth. The overwhelming silence of this particular group – not from a few, but from all of them, it shows that there are powers from above forcing their hand, I cannot imagine, not even for one them, going public to give a more detailed account as to what really happened that night.

     Not true. They are 10 times that. Your numbers for Mex don’t include everything. The cartel numbers are far higher than “reported” because they haven’t even been able to identify bodies and in some cases remains are so deteriorated they can’t determine COD. Estimates for those are well over 10,000. There are also missing people who are believed to have been executed, but whose numbers are also excluded. Of course some of this fault lies with the Obama administration for giving them guns, you know  Fast and don’t blame Obama or Holder. The rest of the blame goes to Mexico for not allowing its innocent civilians to posses guns to protect themselves. They would have a fighting chance then not to become victims and  to vanquish the cartels who prey on them.

    Armed Police in ever school.  C’mon really.  What other “first” world countries have armed police in schools I had a hard time finding one example.  We are suppose to be a model of freedom…  Also NRA has 4 Million members rough 1.5% of the entire population of the USA, how does they have so much power and influence? 

    It seems to me that the NRA really proved that they have no heart and no soul, if they can’t see that this country needs better gun laws.  Extended magazines, semi automatic, piercing ammunition.  why? why? why? do we need them, really.

    NRA like the republican party,have proved that they are self serving, with no real public interest.

    I think back to when Glenn had that Artist on, and they had a good, open, honest discussion, they disagreed but there was respect.  Thats is what is missing today, where is the discussion all we hear is rhetoric.  blah!

    Maybe this country should have a referedum vote on the second ammendment and let the people of the US decide what should happen about gun control…..

     high capacity magazines are more useful in self defense, because they give you more shots at multiple attackers. It takes more than one shot to stop a person in a violent attack. a ten round magazine will only slow you down and more exposed to multiple attackers.

  • BentGhazi

    You are an ignorant fool. The reason we have a Constitution is so morons like you can’t come along and make up your own self-interested rules that trample the rights of others around you. The right to self defense is the most basic among all of the rights of man. If you choose to be a victim, that is your right, but deciding that for others – which is what you propose doing by banning law abiding people from having the means to defend themselves in their own hands, is not yours or any one else’s right. 

    Your opinion about the NRA is strictly left wing propaganda and the words you spew prove you don’t even know what you are talking about, “Extended magazines, semi automatic, piercing ammunition.”, so admit that you don’t even know what any of that means, it’s just words strung together to generate fear in the uninformed. 

    Extended magazines? Where do you want us to draw the line? 
    Semi automatic – do you have any idea what that means? 
    Piercing ammunition? All ammunition pierces something, that is the basic physics of projectiles. What kind of ammunition meets your approval that would effect stopping a mad man like the one at the heart of this tragedy? 

    Too many people like you have the ignorant TV show understanding of the subject of firearms and their use as a legitimate LAST RESORT to foiling the mayhem people like this crazy young man who was the real assault weapon here. It was in his brain that all this incident originated and was planned and carried out. When you have the intellectual honesty to admit that he was the cause of this situation, then you will have to decide how to solve the problem. The solution isn’t banning guns or gun parts or ammunition – it is in effectively identifying the individuals who are a danger to society BEFORE they attack the innocent and defenseless. 

    Armed police or some kind of security with the ability to fire upon an assailant and stop them in their tracks is a much better solution once the murderous fire of these asocial criminally insane people has begun. Keeping people who will purchase guns to protect themselves and others is like supporting these criminals by reducing the likelihood that they will encounter resistance when they engage in their deadly schemes. That isn’t solving the problem – it’s accelerating it.

    Zooropa Fly really doesn’t have a clue. You summed it up nicely. But there is more to add. We don’t have to defend WHY we need guns. The 2nd Amendment doesn’t provide the government with the tools to do that. It simply states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The left always thinks that we need to explain or justify gun ownership. We don’t. Let them figure it out. I’ll explain that when they explain to me how it’s not hypocritical to ban guns, yet they would never think about banning cars, which kill far more people. After all, they’re liberals. It doesn’t HAVE to make sense or be based on fact. The effect of what is done by liberals doesn’t matter to them. It just has to sound good or make them feel good about themselves. Even if the actual outcome of their stupidity is the exact opposite of what the claimed, who cares. It made them feel good about themselves and after all, the principle is what’s important, not the reality.
    There is no need to be reasonable with morons who seem to believe that the simple presence of a gun means tragedy. They will never give up. Unfortunately for them, any attempt to go around the 2nd Amendment will be met with force in the attempt. One thing we can be certain of…none of the leftists will be armed if they aren’t hypocrites. Uh oh. That actually COULD be a problem. Remember the violence of Occupy Wall Street? Funny thing how it is the same people who were attacking the police who are now saying that we need to trust our government to protect us. I wish that I could somehow become a liberal. No responsibility, no conscience, no religion, no morals, no rational thought, no IQ, no such thing as hypocrisy. The main approach to everything is, “The end justifies the means”. Hence, my comment that we might have a problem. In Obamaspeak, “in this time of crisis” can justify ANY abhorrent act. Always, it is the left that promises that it will simply be “temporary”, but will ensure a never ending, ongoing crisis. Seems that Obama should start reading his Julius Caesar if he’s going to sell that pile of manure.

  • Anonymous

    Thank you for that. I’ve read many court cases regarding police responsibility to protect and found the exact same thing. Police departments will NOT take responsibility to protect anyone because if they do, they can be held responsible for failing to do so. I do believe that most police officers are good people and many have laid down their lives in defense of others, but this is not their mandate. Unfortunately, the abandonment of citizens happens all too often nowadays. Case in point-the Aurora Colorado movie theater shootings by James Holmes. The police never entered the movie theater until after Holmes was arrested. I can’t find even a hint of a report of any attempt to do so until after Holmes gave up shooting and walked out the exit door to the parking lot. They could have entered the projection booth. They could hear which side of the theater the shooting was coming from, yet, no attempt was made to enter from the other side, even though the common design of movie theaters offers excellent protection against weapons. They simply did nothing. Yet, if the citizens of Aurora decide to sue the police department for failing to intervene, they will fail. It has been long standing law in the US that the police have no obligation to risk their lives, serve OR protect. It’s a nice slogan, but in a legal sense, they are under no obligation whatever to intervene. This is why, in domestic violence cases, often, no intervention is sent in at all. Restraining orders are a complete joke. Again, most officers are brave and risk their lives in defense of others, but people who claim that they can protect us are fools. The truth of the matter is that only the people on the scene can guard against the deranged.

  • BentGhazi

    Ever seen the antlers on a moose or elk? The animal is hardly defenseless. 

    You clearly have no understanding of what hunting is about, and you compound your ignorance with mythology about how American freedom is secure because of public possession of firearms. Any fool can see the futility of fighting a powerful military weapon mounted on an aircraft or armored ground vehicle, but The Second Amendment isn’t about that. The fact Europeans have been disarmed since the end of Feudalism does not mean much here. We were founded by Europeans who foresaw the need for each individual to be able to defend themselves against outlaws and we have done so. We also managed to gain our freedom from Britain because of individual volunteers who fought against and beat the professional soldiers of Europe. The Constitution was framed by the men who fought to create The United States of America, and it was their determination that this nation should stand among the nations of the world to be the seat of Liberty, and for quite a long time it has been; at one point it was the only free nation with a free people in the entire world. 

    You are obviously not from the US, and you have no idea what any of this means, so in the most polite way I can convey this message, the message is keep your globalist socialism – we will continue to embrace freedom. 

    One crazy man shooting up a school isn’t a reason for the people to abandon our rights, rights that many have died in battle to provide us with. We are unique in the world. We are, with and without our flaws, Americans.

    Of course they want to control the dialog – they are libtards, and that’s what libtards do. They think they are in charge by some magical unseen power that they alone hold over the rest of us and we better all get in line if we know what’s good for us. I have become tired of listening to their demands and dictates – as if they hold sway over reality in any matter. Every time something bad happens they have to ban something to make them feel good. It’s just like their need to punish mankind for climate change, or somehow arrive at the conclusion that making people pay extra for, “carbon credits”, somehow makes the environment all better. All it does is put money in Al Gore’s bank.

    Their problem is they always come up with flawed assumptions and they base their assessments of what they consider important problems on that. No wonder we see nonsense that is inappropriate in relation to reality coming from them.

    One thing I am really sick of is people who can’t think telling me what I should think and how I should live my life – as if they know better than I do.

    You said all I need is a shotgun for hunting. My point is that you can’t hunt everything with a shotgun. So your ridiculous argument falls apart here.
    Another libtard asserted that all I need is a bolt action rifle, to which I might have replied  ” you ever hunt pheasants with a 30-06″ ?  It was a rhetorical question meant to show the fickleness of the liberals argument on their multitude of lame reasons why the liberty of law abiding people to own firearms should be infringed.
    The second amendment is what gives the constitution some teeth. I’ve been a hunter and a shooter my whole life but this isn’t about hunting pal.

    I’m not so sure, a good number of people that are conservatives didn’t turn out to vote because their particular candidate wasn’t in the running. We’ve got to be better at unifying all the conservatives and getting them to vote. This election should be a message to those who throw their votes away. We don’t have a say in anything if the conservatives don’t get elected in majority – 2010 was a watershed, and we needed a landslide to stop the left. People need to grow up and realize that the other side is not playing the game and we are losing it. If the next election does not turn towards conservatives or at least center-right, then there is nothing that can be done.

    I love that any questioning of rhetoric is met with an insult. I am neither ignorant, nor a fool. I’m not questioning the 2nd amendment but there needs to be some common sense. You can’t buy rocket launchers and land mines. I believe there is a way that we can protect the rights of the the responsible gun owner and not have to have armed guards in schools, which isn’t the way we should live in a free society. If you look back through your world history beyond 1776, you can see how societies adapt and changed, England changed the great charter through the ages, you can see the evolution of society through it.

    “piercing ammunition” I mean’t high velocity ammunition. Yes I’m not an “expert” in the terminology, I think you knew what I meant. However guns have been in my family for generations, hunting, sports shooting, and yes I am a gun owner.

    The real issue is with good appropriate, sensible laws to prevent this from happening again, Armed cops in every school isn’t a solution, It’s also surprising that people would want more government involvement and expensive by doing this. THis is America a supposed beacon of liberty and freedom, that need armed police in schools, thats not the country I want to live in. whats next, we give kids tactic training and guns?

    You raised a good point “identifying the individuals who are a danger to society BEFORE they attack the innocent and defenseless. ” Unfortunately this means Health care reform, and education reform, that students don’t fall through the gaps, we know that these kids are on all sides of the social economical spectrum. So yes spotting and treating these children, how many tragic stories have we seen of kids committing suicide.

    So once again, we need honest open political discussion and reform if we are going to prevent this type of horror happening again.

    Gun’s are part of the American culture and story, the NRA however, don’t speak for this gun owner, I found his comments, shocking, offensive, and frankly un-American.

    Frank, c’mon really. of course a high capacity magazine or fully automatic machine gun would do it, but so would a rocket launcher. I’m a gun owner, there is know question that guns have protected lives, I don’t think thats the argument. The Self defense argument I think should go back further that being armed for an attack and look at society and giving the tools to spot and treat potential trouble kids, crime ridden cities, etc. This Idea of just have a bigger better gun that the attacker, isn’t a real solution.

    Your comment is the answer to the problem  – involving those who want to scrap the second amendment and those who want to stop the crazy individual from ever killing in the first place. The only way for this growing conflict to be solved is, for the non-believers to Prove there is a God -and – for those who already believe, these individuals must Prove to themselves, which God is the right God – It is God who says – I am the only God and there is no other – so whats up in America, where we have at least 3000 different religious denominations?

    Once that objective is met – this crisis, of witnessing madmen boldly walk into unprotected public places, bent on destruction, will be something of the past

    Its called, universal understanding of truth, which leads to a right standard of living…human life would now take on a bigger meaning promising national, as well as personal, responsibility. Resulting in something larger than the self.

    Winston…WHAT?!, Healthcare reform and education reform are the answer to identifying the deranged? I don’t even know where to start with this treatise. You have completely missed the point at every turn. This is the answer of those who don’t study, who don’t know the issues and who have never experienced government funded healthcare. For a tortuously long three year period of my life, I worked in a private healthcare system that had, as its goal, the adaptation of federal healthcare methods and funding. It’s the first and last time I ever worked for anyone but myself. I was the most productive doctor they ever had in their history. Since I singlehandedly outworked all of the doctors in four combined clinics, I thought that I was doing a good thing. Certainly the number of patients who were being accepted to the clinic were happy with their treatment since, prior to my arrival, it had become commonplace to be turned away. Imagine my surprise when I was called into a private meeting and told that the clinic was about to fire me. Apparently, my work caused them to lose a federal grant of over $200,000. See Winston, the federal government does not reward efficiency or success. They only answer “need” as they see it and respond only to failure. A federalized healthcare system is NOT the answer, nor is any governmental idea of “education reform”. It does not work. Period. The federal government knows nothing about the methodology of success and sees it as a threat that must be eradicated.
    You obviously have no deep understanding of anything you are attempting to weigh in on here. The psychology of the deranged is so difficult to predict that the American Psychiatric Association has stated that there are no guidelines for predicting or identifying those capable of mass destruction. There are simply too many factors that are unpredictable to accurately identify who will commit such acts. That evaluation is echoed by the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. It is difficult to identify a serial killer, but it is far easier to identify the risk factors leading to sociopathy and serial murder than it is to predict a mass murderer that suddenly snaps. Therefore, there is simply no rationale for any of your contentions that we should forego arms in schools in favor of this fruitless tree. We DO need to study the problem more deeply, but it is a phenomenon that is far rarer than serial murder and therefore, of far less likelihood to stop anyone bent on mass murder and self immolation in the future. From a rational standpoint, if we cannot predict who will commit these crimes, it is much more reasonable to put into place the means of thwarting attack at the common source.
    Where do most of these horrors occur? Schools. Why? Because these individuals obviously feel a need for recognition and they commit their crimes in a place where they are guaranteed to be successfully unopposed, as they can read right on the doors and walls of most of the schools that no one inside is carrying a weapon. They also choose schools because of the horror that functional societies feel for violence against children and the helpless. They are not psychotic, they are sociopathic, thus, they are fully able to effectively plan and carry out their crimes in a way that psychosis does not allow. None of these individuals are delusional and every last one of them KNOWS what they are doing is wrong. However, once again, there is only one common factor in these cases: schools. The average police call takes between 8-11 minutes to answer. There are fewer than 500,000 police officers in a nation of 360,000.000 people. Only 1/3 of those are on duty at any given time under the best of circumstances because of shifts. This is assuming that none of them are sick or on vacation, which we all know is never the case. Of those 1/3, most are not in the areas where schools are at, mainly because the majority of schools, excepting those in the worst areas of the largest cities, are found in urban neighborhoods, where crime is lower, therefore, by necessity, drawing away police presence toward those areas that are more likely to result in police calls. Because of the rarity and unpredictability of these incidents, and the paucity of police presence in the areas where the crimes are committed, depending on the police to effectively respond to and neutralize threats in a school setting is not likely to result in a reduced body count.

    Good read indeed. Proving why the NRAs current stance on school security is the best answer so far, in an effort to protect our children – foremost, the police are already on the scene, verses, there being a waiting period of 5 to 10 minutes respond time. Looking back at the Connecticut incident, the shooter didn’t stop his murderous rampage until he was fully aware of police vehicles arriving, then, this gutless wonder turned the gun on himself ending the insanity. Police are a deterrent and if American educational institutions are truly determined to thwart further shooting sprees – it’s a step in the right direction.

    Sunday Meet the Press w/David Gregory, in an interview with NRAs CEO Wayne LaPierre.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032608/vp/50283353/#50283353 

    Gregory cannot seem to understand rational thinking, in his mind, its not the perpetrator, but the weapon or magazine that kills. The American public are quickly following suit and seem to be jumping on the anti-gun ban-wagon, which will not end, until the second amendment is fully revoked.

    There are many political ilk, who are now calling for a mandatory across the board – no exclusions – gun ban. They want to make it law for all gun owners, to immediately turn over all their weapons to law enforcement. A direct result of liberal PC…which by the way, is the direct result for the increased gun violence across this land.

    …using rational thought, in an irrational world will get you no where…all the same, great post. I’ve also witnessed first hand, government grant waste and fraud…you’re right, if these particular funds were not spent in a given amount of time, they were reduced considerably the next year, or taken away all together, so that of course led to inappropriate use, wasteful spending became rampant to meet quota. As long as the government obligations were met, the funds kept flowing…no questions asked.

    Yes, our healthcare system and educational system is broken. I certainly never suggested the federal government needs to get involved, I said there needed to be reform, and it probably should be at the state level. An armed unit in a school would literally be like having the TSA in our schools, and we know how well that works. More importantly I thought we live in a “free” country of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and now that might mean having armed cops in schools?

    I don’t think its a phenomenon, or a rarity anymore. Our kids can be tormented offline and online, think about all the stupid mistakes or embarrassing things you did growing up. Todays kids have to worry about having ever mistake or embarrassment recorded, uploaded and subject to mockery and torment, which ultimately can lead to this type of tragedy or suicide.

    So yes reform, change, research, education whatever “political” label you want to put on it, but yes there need to be dialog. and change.

    Deep understanding, right, i’m not a psychologist or behavioral expert. I can speak from my own experiences and that of my peers many of which are teachers. I was a terrible teenager, who put my parents through hell growing up, and my parents where attentive, responsible etc… Teenage chemistry, angst whatever you want to call it, but It was a teacher, an Art teacher actually, who change everything for me, she saw, acted, helped and supported and ultimately got me out of trouble, got me focused and got me back on track.

    Everyone is way to eager to label and make political points, without real productive dialog.

    Winston, you have no idea what you’re talking about. You’re actually trying to say that homicidal/suicidal behavior is a predictable reaction to mockery and embarrassment? Or are you saying that you understand them and can predict which bullied child is going to become a mass murderer? It’s funny how nobody else can, not even the professionals who do this for a living. It is not that simple. I don’t know if you’ve ever been exposed to scientific methodology, but those predictors you are listing are not commonalities with all of these people. What, exactly was the trigger in this case? Was there school mockery and abuse? Was there torment? No. There was a young man with Asperger’s syndrome who apparently had “mommy” issues. How exactly does that correspond to anything you listed? The Aurora Colorado shooter, James Holmes, was a successful graduate student. Until the point that he started shooting, he was considered weird, but no one could have predicted this. Was he being tormented? Was he reacting to constant abuse and rejection? No. There is no commonality between these two cases. Not one single thing that you listed was common to EITHER of these cases.
    There is a lot of research, but the problem with it is, there are so many variables that we cannot even attempt to predict where the next one will occur or who will be the one committing that heinous act. Because of that, we need to act with effective measures that ARE common to all of these cases-if one person had a gun, the likelihood of success for the shooter would have been much less. And for the love of Pete, please don’t start whining about bullets whizzing around students. You would have to be an idiot to believe that is more scary than an attacker with no one and nothing that can stand up to him.
    I’m not certain what you’re talking about with the TSA references. The TSA is not trained for this kind of thing. The guards at my children’s school ARE. Properly trained teachers ARE. You need to study this more. I realize it’s very easy to simply gloss over the facts (like all liberals) in this situation, but the more you write, the more you reveal how little you know about any of this.

    Apparently you do display some degree of ignorance. My comments are strictly my own, no rhetoric involved.
    Regarding your statement, “You can’t buy rocket launchers and land mines.”, Legally you can – the BATFE classifies them as destructive devices. Permission to own these things are regulated under rules similar to the National Firearms Act. There is an application procedure followed by a background investigation of the applicant, and the legal ownership is conveyed based on the applicant being considered safe and responsible enough to own such things. You can also as a collector or museum curator own INERT examples of just about any weapon. The key to that being the weapon has to have been de-militarized and rendered inoperable. That means different things for different weapons, and the BATFE is in charge of those regulations. Your ignorance isn’t one of a negative nature, but rather a lack of information on this subject. I was not putting any kind of insult into my comments to you. I think you misinterpreted much of what I said because you were not educated in this area, and I now understand that.

    I would personally rather know that my children were protected from harm by personnel who are trained in the use of appropriate weaponry and response tactics rather than leaving them un-guarded and an easy target for the next suicidal maniac with a gun and the will to use it. I don’t see how anyone can find securing the schools more threatening than the current situation has proven to be. The point is we have to be more serious about the safety of our communities in specific areas that have been demonstrated on multiple occasions to be perilous to our youngest members of society.

    There has been a lot of contributing factors that have created this environment which is precipitating these acts of violence, and this approach of gun control equals less violence just doesn’t work. People who are criminally motivated will obtain weapons and do their monstrous acts of mayhem in spite of the law. Lawless people do not respect laws, gun related or otherwise, so the best response for the immediate term is to prepare the places they are known to attack by providing armed and trained persons capable of taking the advantage away from the criminal attackers.

    There is no need to reform anything – we just need to do the basic level of protecting our, “soft targets”, like the schools, malls, and other places where these suicide shooting incidents have occurred in the past.

    As far as England being the example, the jury is still out on that – many of the problems throughout the Middle East and Southwest Asia are the result of the end of British influence in it’s former colonies during the latter half of the twentieth century. I would be reluctant to hold Great Britain up as a shining example.

    I don’t see how you come to the conclusion that the NRA position is un-American or offensive, it seems reasonable to me in view of recent events.

    What I find shocking and offensive is the instant politicizing of an unquestionably tragic event for pursuing the same ideological goal that spawned Fast and Furious. This happens to be another liberal position I find an offense – they trivialize the deaths of 26 people, the majority of them kindergarten students, so they can push the re-institution of the Assault Weapons Ban, that statistically and literally was a failure. That’s the reason it was allowed to expire in the first place – it didn’t work.

    “What I find shocking and offensive is the instant politicizing of an unquestionably tragic event” YES!!! by both sides of the aisle, I go back to my point, sensible, unpoliticized dialog without anti-gun or pro guns groups involved, to work out a sensible response to this. As a parent this is a very real subject.

    The country of freedom and liberty, now with armed guards in school, what other first world country does that. That’s how are kids have to go to school in the US, wow!

    The ” trained” guard didn’t work out that well at columbine did it, who regulates it? thats my TSA example another government run nightmare?

    Well, clearly you haven’t done your research, there are tons of papers and studies on the psychology of children and bullying, and more now with cyber bullying. Of course its not an exact science, but we should ignore it?

    Again give me one example of other “free” “first” world countries that need armed guards in schools, I could find one. Thats really the country you want to live in. Maybe we should train the kids and let the kids carry guns…

    The NRA’s “Kindergarten Cop” scenario is ridiculous. It’s as knee jerk a reaction to the banning of all guns.

  • BentGhazi

    We are not any other country, and we have a problem with crazy people bringing guns to schools and going on shooting rampages, do we not? The response is entirely appropriate for the situation, but for some reason the easiest to accomplish method is the one you object the most to. Apparently you are unaware that the Department of Education is already in the schools, so your protestations seem a bit off to me. No one is suggesting the TSA – but that kind of hype is typical of people who don’t have a solution but will object to anyone who does. The thing is, putting some kind of trained, armed security in the schools will work. You can’t ban crazy or the access they have to weapons. It hasn’t been working. What else do you propose we do about the problem of these school shooters? Yes, this is a very real subject and there needs to be a very practical solution to it. I am all for solving this problem, but in a way that uses resources we already have and not reinventing the non-solutions of the past.

    We are past the why we need to do this stage, I think it is plainly obvious why. Gun bans are not the answer, they didn’t work in the past and they punish only the law abiding people who still have the right of self defense under the Second Amendment. What the director of the NRA proposed will work, and the negative reaction to it seems largely attributable to the fact it came from the NRA. Other than that, it is the most practical, easily implemented, and cost effective solution to the present problem. If you have a better idea please feel free to bring it up.

    The biggest problem with this situation is that the kind of people who do these sorts of crimes are unaffected and undeterred by the present abundance of laws related to firearms possession and they don’t really care or pay attention to them. I can guarantee you that they won’t treat the presence of trained, armed police with the same attitude. It’s easy for these people to massacre people with no fear of being stopped, but I guarantee you they will respect the presence of counter force. If they don’t, it will be them dying instead of the innocents they prey upon.

    I had a Merry Christmas and intend to have a safe and Happy New Year, thank you.

    Winston, you haven’t read a single study. I’m a physician/scientist and I can tell when someone is trying to fake it. You’re just skirting the issue. I HAVE read the actual studies, not what the New York Times says about the studies. There is simply no way for behaviorists to accurately predict the traits of people who do this, especially in juveniles as they cut across all income levels, all races, all issues. How would you propose, then, “studying” the issue? They are and that is why I continue to point out the obvious that, since we can’t predict the traits, we can only accurately predict the place that these things will occur and under what circumstances. And so far as Columbine, the guards were not in the school at the time, they were in the parking lot and didn’t enter the school again after shooting from a distance at Harris and missing. They were not trained how to deal with something like this. Both guards were trained by the police. In fact, NONE of the on duty police officers or guards were properly trained and they did everything wrong and to little effect. The point I have been making is that the police are not trained for this and can only respond after the fact. These guards were in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong training, so, nice try, but no dice. Properly trained, armed teachers/guards can make a difference. Nothing you have suggested is anything but hand wringing and tripe.

    Skirting the issue…. I’m asking the question’s and your answer is “a kid with aspergers who as mommy issues” that sounds really professional and really scientific. A scientist is suppose to look for patterns, traits solution and answers. You apparently don’t. There are many recently published studies on the affects of cyber bullying, yes people react differently and to varied extremes, we should ignore it then?

    “These guards were in the wrong place at the wrong time” exactly, my point. it made no difference, worthless.

    So the Police aren’t trained for it, so should we have the army, private security guards or arm the teachers? I honestly don’t think that is anymore that a knee-jerk reaction.

    Why is that, what make “us” as a country more prone to this and how do we go about changing it.

    “No one is suggesting the TSA” I wasn’t suggesting the TSA either, I’m just skeptical of this proposed nationwide armed implementation. what is best Police, military, private organization.

    “You can’t ban crazy or the access they have to weapons. It hasn’t been working.
    exactly. the current status quo hasn’t helped. I don’t want to see a ban on weapons either, but something has to give.

    The size of today schools and the ground that would need to be covered, you would need more that one guard per school, to be “effective” you would need an armed unit, that would have to patrol, basically it would have to be a prison. So if the prison model is what we are going for then, maybe more secure building and grounds/ camera monitoring and and ability to remotely lockdown hallways and classrooms.

    The NRA response was, the government should do more to protect, we ain’t changing.

    There’s a big difference between schools and prisons, and if you can’t understand that, I can’t help you beyond explaining that prisons are guarded to isolate the prisoners from societal contact, and in the case of a school it would be guarded to prevent criminal activity from occurring on the grounds. The school that the president’s daughters go to has a 12 person security staff, and I am sure that the rest of the children and their parents benefit from that, and don’t consider it a prison.

    Look, I never said the NRA suggestion was perfect, but it is one solution that can be implemented in most communities across the country. It also takes the responsibility for security away from federal government and puts it where it belongs – at the local level. This isn’t being forced on anyone, and it has some undeniable logic behind it. These suicidal/homicidal attacks are less likely to occur in places with trained armed protection, whether you hire private contractors, or employ active duty police, sheriff’s deputies, or some other type of well trained and armed personnel for the job. Most places concerned with security have access points in an area that allows only one entrance, and many one-way exits. I think that guarding one entryway while monitoring the exits is something a relatively small number of people can accomplish.

    I just think most of the reaction was due to the source of the idea, and not the idea itself. The NRA has the right idea as long as the federal government stays out of it, and the local authorities will take seriously the implementation of some kind of security – as it stands right now, we have a problem that has been going on since Columbine and no one has really done anything to deal with it. There just isn’t any security in place and that is why people like this shooter in Connecticut was able to execute 26 people with very little difficulty. There was nothing and no one to stop him. Does it make sense to allow that situation to continue in view of history? This isn’t the NRA’s problem to fix, it is the local authorities’ problem, and we will see if they continue to be derelict in their duty to protect the schools, or if they finally want to get serious about securing them from outside violent rampage killers.

    I don’t think it is the NRA that needs to change – it’s the continued ignorance and unwillingness to admit there is a problem as well as a lack of initiative on the part of communities to address this problem.

    This is what happens when you decide to let treatment for psychological illness go by the wayside, and give more sway to the rights of the mentally disturbed than you do to the rest of society. They need to be treated and that treatment needs to be maintained by force if necessary. Otherwise, you invite more mass murders by sociopathic individuals that manage to elude the safety net. It has become so difficult to segregate harmful persons from the rest of humanity because of the efforts of good intentioned organizations like the ACLU who have managed to destroy society’s ability to assure the treatment of psychologically unbalanced people among us. So we either identify and force treatment on criminally mentally ill individuals, or we protect the people we can. There is no third option, and since the mentally ill in this country have become a protected species, so to speak, that leaves us one alternative. Sooner or later we will have to protect schools in some meaningful fashion, or accept the current state of things where madmen go on killing sprees in the public schools.

    You tell me which one makes the most sense.

    Because its not the problem. Why are you still driving a car? They kill far more people. Most accidents are caused by drunk drivers, but its not their fault, right? After all the cars were the cause of all those deaths, not the choices made by the individuals driving them. Lets apply your logic. The only logical way to prevent deaths at the hands of drunk drivers would be to remove their chosen weapon of destruction. Many of them have suspended licenses, so the only way to ensure that they can’t drive is to take all cars off the road. Only by doing this could we hope to curb the problem.
    It is the same with guns. More laws will only be obeyed by the non homicidal. But more laws are just as effective as taking away a drunk’s license. It is symbolic and depends completely on the drunk’s willingness to comply. If we were really honest, we would go back to prohibition as well. Only in that way could we remove alcohol and 5,000 pound weapons of destruction from the hands of those who care so little about their fellow men that they drink and drive. Of course you would NEVER consider doing such a thing…that would be inconvenient for you and why should you have to suffer for the actions of someone else? And we all know how well prohibition worked, don’t we.
    Your “solution” doesn’t work. And guns don’t fire themselves, alcohol isn’t consumed accidentally, people don’t accidentally drive with suspended licenses. The fact that you can’t figure out what the true problem is in the first place only makes for skewed, irrational logic. The problem is you can’t predict who will act or when. Therefore, rather than whining about what we wish were true, a much more effective means of controlling the problem is at the one point that all factors intersect-the schools.
    So perhaps, instead of blaming an inanimate object, you could try placing the blame on the one who pulled the trigger. I notice that in none of your posts do you bother looking any deeper than that.

Why don’t you start thinking before lapsing into mindless, illiterate textspeak on this subject? What, people have never been murdered in large numbers with knives? Maybe Sharia law is the answer you’re looking for here. Just cut off people’s hands if they ever show any inclination for violence and they can’t possibly pick up a knife OR a gun. After all, again using your reasoning, better to lose your hands than be given the chance to kill.

    What do you think were used as the majority of weapons to kill right up to and including World War II? In 1993, between 500,000 – 1,000,000 Tutsis in Rwanda were killed by rival tribal Hutus. Whole villages were slaughtered by the Interahamwe and Impuzamugambi factions roving in small bands. Less than 30% of these people were murdered using guns. Machetes are one of the main weapons of mass destruction in Africa, the Phillipines, and most Third World nations today. Don’t tell me that it is not possible to murder on a large scale using knives. Again, you do not understand what you are talking about. It is painfully obvious that you, like virtually every liberal that I have ever dealt with, are uninterested in addressing any problem logically. Based on how poorly you write, it is painfully obvious that true, studied, intellectual inquiry is an activity you have never experienced. Every one of your posts reads at the reasoning level of a 12-yr-old and is reasoning is woefully superficial and devoid of fact. It is you and every other liberal that willfully try to build a world around what you wish could be, but are unwilling to follow a logical framework to bring about. Posting “gun free zone” on buildings does nothing but advertise to those of nefarious intent that they will receive absolutely no opposition should they wish to enter to enact whatever fantasy end game that they wish. I don’t care what it “means” if we need guards. You can whine and bemoan the state of things all you want. In the end, your words will only delay ensuring the safety of children. Stop the hand wringing. Stop the foolishness. If highly trained, armed teachers or guards are necessary, so be it.

    Virginia Tech, after experiencing the horror of an attack that left 33 people dead and 17 wounded, reviewed their emergency procedures. They realized that it was exactly those same policies that allowed Seung-Hui Cho to not only roam the campus at will in his murderous attacks, but to do so TWICE. No one could stand up to him because no one had weapons and the campus police were trained at about the same level as the local police. In other words, they had less training than the average CCW holder. Now, Virginia Tech has changed its policies. Students possessing CCW permits are now allowed to carry weapons at school. In reviewing what happened, they realized that their policies turned students into sitting ducks.

    Whether you think it is going to be the OK Corral out there is meaningless in comparison to the right of individuals to protect themselves and others. Your wishful thinking, when applied as policy, has consequences and often results in more violence, not less. Why do you think that these murderers always go to schools with posted policies against weapons? Why do they rarely attack police stations? And whether you like or dislike weapons, you do not have the right to deny others the ability to defend themselves and others. I know that liberals think that if they don’t like something, they need to outlaw it for everyone, but when it comes to the right to defend oneself, that right is inalienable. In other words, think what you like, but neither you nor Barack Obama nor any of the other liberals, whether foolish or evil, will succeed in disarming the American public because you deem all firearms “unsafe”. No one believes that it’s okay to allow criminals or the mentally deranged access to arms, so don’t even try to fall back on that bit of liberal hysterical tripe. But short of that, your rights to remove all firearms from the hands of the American public are sure to fail because you have two things to deal with that are nearly insurmountable. 1. Your quest depends on convincing everyone that we need to upend the constitution in order to deny rights, thus making it just as possible to remove YOUR civil rights in the same way. I don’t think you or any of your ilk quite understands that every right ignored or removed can be turned against you as well when the tables are turned and 2. You, the unarmed, will be looking down the barrels of more than 300,000,000 weapons and demanding that we, the armed, hand them over. Good luck with that. Perhaps if all of you were to go running naked through the desert and hold hands and sing Cum-by-Yah it could happen….NOPE.

    You still have not given me an example of a person with a nife killin a bunch of people at the sametime. No i have my master degree but i’m also working so not going to waste time spell checking. Because most of school shooting are done by students that go to that school.  We don’t need to change the consitution. We don’t even need to outlaw all guns but assualt rifles and semi automatic weapons need to be outlawed and by your logic all drugs should be legal cause we should not outlaw something just because it’s unsafe. personal attacks are not called for never called you a name or attacked you personally be respectful no need to be immatureAnd you last statement was again uncalled for just give facts and number even if you want to give a example or situation call. but please stop all this libral this and libral that i don’t see my self as a libral or a conservative i think for myself i don’t agree with alot the libral say and i don’t agree with lot of what conservative say i have my own mind and what i think is not shape by liberal or conservaties. so please stop trying to lump everybody in your liberal conservative groups

    You work so you don’t have time to spell, yet you claim that you have a master’s degree. I’ve never met or trained a graduate student that communicates on the level that you do, so, no, I don’t believe you are telling the truth about that. What are you saying? None of the rest of us work and that’s why we CAN spell? Now that’s truly flawless reasoning there, Copernicus. Writing is second nature for those who have progressed to that level. So is research. You aren’t there. You need to go back and read that last post you made. I don’t even understand where you were going with half of it because it was so unhinged and grammatically incorrect as to render it completely incomprehensible. Case in point. Out of the blue, you say, “Because most of school shootings are done by students that go to that school.” Nothing prior to that and nothing following to explain what that was all about. You’re just digging this hole deeper.
    I didn’t lump you into an identity, you have clearly identified yourself with what you profess to believe. If you don’t like it then don’t associate with the beliefs of the groups that spout the same mindless prattle that you do. So far as giving you an example of a “nife” attack by an individual person, try some of the individual accounts by women from the wars in Sierra Leone and Rwanda, jihadist terrorist attacks by deranged individuals in the Philippines, Indonesia and Afghanistan and teen drug cartel hit men with more than 50 murders under their belts. But I’m not going to play that game with you anymore. Your “point” is not meaningful unless you are saying that ALL guns have to be removed from the hands of all individuals. Without that level of intervention, arguing about knife attacks is just plain inane. But you completely refute your own contention on that point anyway because you then go on to state that you are only for taking away “assault weapons” and “semi-automatic weapons”. Well, which is it? Either we are left with nothing but a few knife styles (since many of them are regulated and are not for sale to the general public, proving once again the sinister intentions of liberals who will take whatever freedoms they can grab from anywhere they can get it) or else we still have all other guns, which are just as capable of killing, even when the murderer stops to reload, as we have seen in every attack in recent times. Ever heard of a double action revolver? With a speed loader, I can reload a revolver almost as quickly as a semi-auto without having to cycle the chamber. I can fire just as accurately and almost as fast with the same number of bullets as I can any of my semi-autos, but of course, you wouldn’t know that. You know nothing about any weapon at all. You couldn’t accurately name a single caliber weapon and its firing characteristics, yet you feel knowledgable enough to jump into contending for WHAT should be confiscated or controlled. Any one of my hunting rifles can do more damage than what the shooters used in any of the recent attacks, but most anti-gun morons wouldn’t consider them “assault weapons” because they don’t look like military weapons. Typical liberal manure…it doesn’t matter what the facts are, or the consequences of acting on wishful thinking or lack of knowledge, just whether it sounds good or looks a certain way.

    The second amendment clearly forbids federal interference with the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms. There are no exceptions mentioned and it is the most clearly written amendment of the constitution, but even if that amendment were not enough, the tenth amendment covers all the rest of the questions as to who has the right to regulate anything. It states that if a power is not mentioned in the constitution, that power is forbidden claim by the federal government and belongs strictly to the states, and by extension, the people. The constitution doesn’t give the federal government the authority to regulate the right of any individual to own a gun and it strictly forbids the federal government from making or enforcing laws that infringe on the right to defend oneself and others…period. Nor does it afford the government the authority to force individuals to justify WHY they should be allowed to exercise that right. In other words, I don’t have to justify why I can keep, and carry a gun and use it to defend myself and others. Anyone can talk about it, but that is not a luxury afforded the government before the law. According to you, we don’t need to change the constitution, yet you are advocating new laws that would directly contradict the language of the constitution, in both the letter of the law AND the spirit. The only way to accomplish what you and all gun grabbers want is to 1. amend the constitution or 2. (far more likely under our current worthless, freedom hating leadership) simply ignore the constitution and “amend” it through executive”policy” and mandate.

    Just stop before you appear any more uninformed or foolish. Or go right ahead and reply. I’m not wasting any more time trying to explain the world to someone who has neither the background to understand, nor the will to educate themselves.

    it has nothing to do with not spelling when a person types they tend to hit the wrong key it happens so much that there is a word for it a typo. Not spending the time to check my typos. Now if this was something important i would but blogging on this site is not important for me to do that. You keep saying that people are just walking into the school with guns just because it a gun free zone. like a person on the street sees a school and decides to shoot it up. Which is not the case school shooting are done by students who go to the school. again that is a group of people. So the only guns are semi-automatic and assuat rifles? then a speed loader needs to bet iillegal. and you still have not gave me an example iof one person killing a bunch of people with a knife you keep giving example that a mass mob related. Just because i agree with librals on gun control does not make me a libiral. I agree with conservatives on abortion but that does not meani am conservative unlike you i think for myself and i don’t need a group to tell me how i should think. wrong the 2nd amendment allows you to regulate all the amendents allow you to regulate. And the 2nd amendment was writen because the founding fathers did not belive in a organized military so they. so the 2nd amndment allowed america to have a armed militia. But that did not last long and they had to get a military force. Not uninformed you just don’t agree wich is fine but what the problem with america is that people don’t know how to disagree with respect anymore. Look at our conversation for example. I didn’t try to attck you personally or try to lump you into any group because i’m not conversating with a group i am with you. We have to learn how to disagree without being disrespect. But it’s a shame that adults act like this. I was told that when a person trys to attack you and not bring facts that because there arument is weak and they have to attack you as a self-defence for there lack of knowledge. I’m not saying that’s you but evry example that i ask you tio give you can’t. Every argument that you have put forth are very good. So to cover that up you attack me. Please let be mature and keep the conversation resepctful. I have not said any disrespect I just ask for the same respect. There is no reason for us as adults to be immature. You want the goverment to work together why don’t we start by respect each other.

    Radical
    Islamists killed 2,996 (two thousand nine hundred ninety six) human beings
    including 8 children under the age of twelve on the planes and several pregnant
    women in the towers. The Killers did this in one fell-swoop armed only with box
    cutters.

     

    Timothy
    McVeigh and Terry Nichols armed only with fertilizer and fuel-oil killed 168 people
    including 19 children under the age of 6 and injured more than 680.

     

    A
    killer is a killer regardless of the number of people they kill, the age of the
    people they kill, the reasons they kill or the tools they choose to commit
    their crimes. The killer himself is the only thing responsible
    for the results of his actions.

     

    The
    second amendment is not only about hunting, sport shooting or even home
    defense. Although you may choose to keep and bear arms only
    for hunting and sport shooting, the second amendment does not discriminate or
    differentiate based on any individual or group’s idea of what the people need
    or don’t need and what they need it for or don’t need it for. Likewise the first
    amendment not only protects speech you agree with, it also protects speech you
    may disagree with. The second amendment protects the right to keep and bear
    arms not just for reasons you agree with but also for reasons you may think are
    unnecessary. As a government’s abilities to oppress the will of the people grow,
    so should the people’s abilities to defend themselves and the Constitution.
    Just because our forefathers could not have foreseen “modern assault
    weapons” in their time, it does not invalidate them from constitutional
    protections in any way. Freedom of the press and freedom of speech did not see
    the future of radio, television, cell phones or the internet and all of those tools
    are also protected equally in the eyes of the law under the Constitution. Yet information
    can sometimes be far more powerful than a bullet.

     

    Our
    failed broken government (all political parties included) should fear the
    people, but we should not fear them. If every citizen in this country
    owned an “assault weapon,” I assure you our
    “representation” in Washington would be paying a little more
    attention to the will of the people instead of passing bills they haven’t even
    read while exempting themselves from those very same laws – stripping away our rights
    and constitutional protections in the middle of the night and spending more of
    OUR money than WE can ever hope to repay, ensuring our children’s slavery
    to the national debt for the rest of their lives. How can they claim to be
    representing us if they don’t even read the laws they are passing, consider the
    impact on the people they represent or the future of our great nation? I do not
    advocate violence in any way whatsoever, but if our government always has it in
    the back of their heads that we are CAPABLE of fighting back, and that we have
    the resolve to do so if necessary, they might actually pay attention to what
    they are doing. Our government no longer fears us, for they lie while looking
    us straight in the eye. Our government, aided and abetted by corporate mass
    media and our own complacency have fractured and divided the people among so
    many lines and issues that I wonder with a saddened heart if we even stand a
    chance to remain that great shining city on the hill, a beacon of
    freedom and hope to the entire planet, capable of so much good in the
    world. United we stand, divided we fall, our forefathers knew this, the enemies
    of freedom and liberty know this too. Divided on the Constitution, We the People will
    fall.

    That is just too stupid even for you to suggest you are ignorant of the history of mass shootings, especially in view of recent examples.

    You really are not any good at this, perhaps crochet is more your forte.

  • Sandie

    Timothy McVeigh didn’t use a gun and he killed 168 people. Knife attacks  at Chinese schools have gotten to be common place now, where children are killed and wounded. The kids in that latest one were outside and able to escape worse damage and therefore not killed, but in other attacks they have been killed by knife wielding attackers.  Google the key words and you will find many deadly attacks on people in schools, shops, etc. Be a little resourceful.

  • BentGhazi

    I have worked for many government agencies or in support of them my entire career, and they all practice incremental budgeting, the process which leads to all that wasteful spending. They have to spend all the money in the budget by the year end, and at that time the frivolous spending that goes on just to assure the department has the same budget next year is amazingly atrocious. 

    We should have adopted zero based budgeting years ago, but none of the powerful in Washington and all the state capitols want that because it means being accountable for every penny spent by government. 

    slkgej6 and Winston don’t have any idea about the money required to guard our schools, and that is just another red herring they want to bring up to avoid the facts that the NRA’s recommendation is the only one so far that makes any sense. They will continue to create straw-man arguments as long as they can in order to push their agenda. I am convinced that both are ideologues, who are here merely to counter post to every conservative and sensible alternative to their Media Matters compatriots’ position that guns are evil. 

    They simply don’t know any better because their trainers haven’t allowed them access to knowledge outside of the official line of propaganda.

    you say that you have historacl record to prove your piont please present them. Or is it that you don’t have any so to cover the fact that you have no facts. you try to say thing like i’m too stupid or i’m ignorant of History. Just shut me up by showing your fact. I read your comments all the time on this sites and it all the same from you. when ever anyone disagrees with you instead of showing facts to back up what you say you just start calling people trolls and all other sorts of name but what is funny is i never read anything from you with and facts or substance. A may disagree with alot of the people on this site about alot of thing but i give them respect for haveng substance behind the argument no matter if i agree with or not. But i can’t say the same for you. You tend to very immature and have no facts or substance behind anything you say. You pretty much just very good at  putting people down.

    I’ve been reading that the Sandy Hook Massacre is a Hoax, set up by those who want a ban on guns.  There are reports that is was actually set up like a disaster movie.  There is some pretty damning evidence to support this.   What do you think?

  • BentGhazi

    Are you too stupid to read a book or search the internet?
    Apparently you are. Troll elsewhere, your input here on this subject is neither desired or required.

    Your judgement of maturity leaves a LOT to be desired – You don’t show us much of anything any other troll has done before, especially in your poor command of English. There is nothing about you to respect, and no substance to your specious arguments.

They think screaming profanity loudly at everyone is the best way to get attention. Look at what the Occupoopers did – that is the strategy of the leftists, and there is no substance beyond it.

    Now they are out in force screaming about banning guns because some gutless insane young man killed his mother to take her guns on a shooting spree at an elementary school. They jumped on the AR-15, and later we learned while there was one in his possession, it never left his car. What else are they going to get wrong and expect to get a pass on? They don’t realize that they kill their credibility when they screw up the details and present a case based on lies, assumptions and erroneous information.

    No, Anita, it’s not. It is not “crazy” people who are committing these atrocities. The truly crazy are incapable of the planning and organization that it takes to pull this off. Even in places where gun control has become near fanatical, such as England, mass shootings STILL occur. Their most recent high profile mass shooting occurred in Cumbria, a rural town in England, in which a gunman roamed freely without opposition because even the police didn’t have guns. The guns are not the problem, it is people. And the people who are committing the crimes are sane. They are not psychopathic, most would not even fall into the sociopathic category until AFTER their crimes were committed. Gun control only disarms those who are not committing crimes, leaving them defenseless. In this can be found the biggest difference between liberals and conservatives. Liberals don’t like something and they do everything in their power to make laws to ban whatever they don’t agree with, including the suppression of free speech. If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.

    I
    read on the first or second day that the Sandy Hook
    Elementary killer had an AR-15 in the car.  I never heard that or read that again and now
    two months later, only because the corner released his report some of the press
    were forced to tell the truth,

    All
    the kids were killed with 9 MM. No assault weapon was used in the Sandy Hook Elementary school.

    It’s
    not surprising that the Obama administration, Democrats and the press are not
    telling the whole truth.  It did not meet
    their agenda.

    There
    is an old adage, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

    Last
    week, the media tried  to convince us
    that support for Senator Feinstein’s anti-gun legislation on assault weapons,
    especially the AR-15 type.  

    Legislation
    will pass as written even though they have not
    read it.  But now that word is out the press,
    and Democrats
    look like fools and liars.
