    that they only want "sensible gun control"...

    Diane Feinstein, regarding Senate action on guns in the 90's: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here."

    What the knee jerk idiots don't seem to understand is that this is not a gun issue but rather a mental health issue.

    This guy had a history of mental illness. His mother made one mistake after another raising this kid and it culminated in violence.

    She taught him how to shoot so ultimately she is responsible.

    For Christ's sake who is stupid enough to teach a mentally unstable kid how to shoot a gun anyway?

    Taking guns away from everyone is not the answer. 99.9999999999% of gun owners, even those that own so called assault rifles, will never take a life with a gun.

    BS. You know nothing of the kind.

    Yes, and she bought the guns. But, I thought the guns nuts say guns in the home will keep you safe. Make up your mind.

    Progressive can only fill their mass graves with unarmed citizens, the armed ones tend to fight back and that stops them

    Where is the evidence that Nancy Lanza "made one mistake after another raising this kid"???

    Friend: Nancy Lanza was 'very devoted' to her sons - TODAY News

    Nancy Lanza Feared She Was ‘Losing’ Her Son, Said He Was ‘Getting Worse,’ ‘Burning Himself With A Lighter’ | Mediaite

    Nancy Lanza had considered moving with her son to Wash. state, friend says - The Washington Post

    Nancy Lanza, Peter Lanza Divorce Documents Reveal Details About Adam Lanza's Parents

    The mistake she made was buying guns, having guns out in the open so that one could be used against her. Same with the grandfather of one of the Columbine shooters. And, he said he would do the same and had no intention of locking his guns away from his other grand kids.

    OTOH, if your guns are locked away, you have little defense against an intruder. Or, do you just say, "Okay Bad Guy, stay there while I go unlock the gun cabiniet and load a gun".

    We can and will get these assault weopons off the streets.

    1. You own an assault weopon, you have to get the same license as someone that has a fully automatic weopon. You are caught outside your home with said weopon, and no license, the weopon is confiscated and destroyed, you go to jail and have a felony offense on your record.

    2. You store your guns irresponsibly, any kind of gun, and it is taken and used in a crime, you own that crime.

    3. There is early intervention for the mentally ill. Irregardless of the ability to pay. Much less costly to our society than what we have seen in the past decade.

    Add to that, background checks at gun shows and some sort of on line check. Currently, 40+% of gun sales have no background checks and known foreign terrorists can legally buy guns in the US.
