    This will be an atrocity. There are so many things that could be done to assure that this never happens again. But if there is mention of gun laws or anything to do with guns the NRA says NO.

    They don't represent the majority of gun owners anymore. They respresent the manufactorers. Sooner or later, the NO, is going to start costing them memberships.

    Yes, they do.

    Please stop using this tragedy to push your political agenda.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are already plenty of laws on the books. How about figuring out how to enforce them better before asking for new ones?

    Because that doesn't advance Jim's gun grabbing agenda.

    So restricting LAW ABIDING citizens would have helped in Ct?
    How so??

    Law abiding citizens are not committing these massacres now are they?

    How about we look into the mental health industry and look at banning "gun fee zones"?

    Btw, if the NRA doesn't represent me and other LAW ABIDING citizens, why has their membership grown by over 100,000 NEW members?

    Something must be done. Even if that means hysterical pussified liberals pretending to do something that matters. And before its too late !

    The NRA is nothing but a pork barreled lobbyist group that forces gun manufactures to keep bankrolling them. They are essentially a union on steroids, but the right wingers don't care.

    How is ensuring no law abiding citizen is armed going to prevent a criminal with mental health issues from killing people?
