    Calls for greater gun control after mass shooting at elementary school | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

    Morons, more laws won't stop people bent on killing. Unless they plan to seal our borders and our coastline outlawing guns won't stop them from being available to crooks and killers.

    By the way? In China a man murdered a bunch of elementary school children with a knife. One does not need a gun. And the ability to construct a huge bomb is pretty available as well.

    Just so you know, I will never surrender my weapons.

    No new laws will come from this but your paranoia is noted.

    I challenge you to a duel, I get a gun and you can have a knife.

    It's the same thing, they can both kill someone, right?

    Not from lack of trying, or did you miss the point?

    I recently started throwing knives for fun. Give me another year or so and I might accept lol. But anyways, that was irrelevant to what he was saying

    The point was you whining "They're coming to take mah gunzzz" and I'm telling you that simply won't happen and none of us care about your view of gun rights. It's like a gay dude screaming that he's gay to everyone and thinking everyone is out to get him, when nobody cares.

    No it wasn't, in fact it tears apart the ridiculous notion that because other things can kill, there's no need to have regulations on guns of any kind.

    Guns by far have a higher success rate for physical harm than knives, or anything else that doesn't project hot lead towards you faster than human eye can see.

    Sensible oversight of who purchases weapons needs to be discussed. Pros and cons weighed and then a decision can be made.

    On a side note I've noticed that many of these mass shooting are done by VERY young adult males with possible mental issues. That should also be a part of the discussion.

    The fucking NRA fights even "cooling off" periods.

    The gun lobby will never be ready for a sensible conversation about this.
