    SNIP:
    A veteran Democratic lawmaker believes the nation will go along with stronger gun control laws if President Obama “exploits” the Newtown, Conn., tragedy and nudges Congress to action.


    snip:
    Mr. Nadler was asked whether the Newtown tragedy could be the turning point in many Democrats’ longstanding struggle to enact stronger gun laws.

    “I think we will be there if the president exploits it, and otherwise we’ll go on to the next” incident, Mr. Nadler said.

    It's okay to exploit a mass shooting of kids, but it's criminal to question why 4 Americans died in a terrorist attack.

    Ain't gonna happen. Too much evidence so called 'gun control' doesn't work. It hasn't worked in states with the toughest gun control laws and it hasn't worked in countries that banned civilian gun ownership...including the outright confiscation of existing privately owned firearms.

    In fact, gun crime is highest in those states with the strictest gun control laws. As other states loosened their gun laws and issued more and more conceal carry permits, gun crime decreased. Further, after banning guns in other countries, gun crime actually increased (the UK and Australia being prime examples).

    That said, I understand logic and reason have nothing to do with this debate. It's about what FEELS right...:eusa_eh:

    You don't know why people die in a terrorist attack?

    From what I understood he had an AR-15 but it appeared to not have been used. All of the shootings were 9mm pistols that were legally purchased and stolen from his Mother...who I have a suspicion purchased them for her son at an earlier date. Kind of have a hard time believing the Mother bought 5 guns including an AR-15 for herself alone.
