    The point is obviously almost 99.999% of gun owners are law abiding and would never do what the 62 mass shooters have done.

    Since 1982, there have been at least 62 mass shootings* across the country, with the killings unfolding in 30 states from Massachusetts to Hawaii. Twenty-five of these mass shootings have occurred since 2006, and 7 of them have taken place in 2012. We've mapped them below, including details on the shooters' identities, the types of weapons they used, and the number of victims they injured and killed.

    And with Adam Lanza playing violent video games daily, we can't make the hyperbolic leap that ALL video gamers are potential mass murderers.

    So why the rush to seize guns. To ban semi-automatics? Clips?

    WHY then ban guns and not video games?

    Illogically rush to ban is MORE support from the government for REASON!
    And even with the killings in Newtown as a backdrop, a new Gallup poll shows 74 percent of Americans now support the right to possess a handgun, while just 24 percent would support a ban.

    So why is the government wanting to confiscate guns?

    All these handwringing frightened liberals need to buy a gun and take a course in gun safety and how to use one to overcome their gunophobia.

    I am a gun owner and play video games (when I have time). I do not go around killing people. In fact, I have never killed anyone. So, yea, obviously

    Nor are all drivers. Because some asshole runs over people at a bus stop, we shouldn't look to ban cars.

    Nor are swimmers. Just because drowning kills far more children than firearms ever have, we shouldn't look to ban water...or swimming...or bathing.

    On the other hand, some firearms LOOK scary, so there's that...:eusa_shifty:
