    Yeah I'm picking this up in my Facebook postings but I don't respond. They're real life friends, not folks I'd trash talk like here. :D

    I guess there are liberals and then there are liberals.

    I'm a liberal, and I can't for the life of me find a way to make anyone responsible for the CT shootings than Lanza himself. I just don't see how we can keep guns out of the hands of those who would do others harm short of completely removing them from the face of the planet - and I just don't see that as a feasible solution.

    Honestly, I would love a world in which there were no guns, but that is not the world we live in. In the US, there are around 300 million guns owned by I don't know how many people. There is no realistic way to even confiscate them if the government wanted to.

    Likely they will re-instate the assault weapons ban with a cartridge limit on the number of bullets and possibly a ban on armor-piercing bullets also...

    In Shift, Pro-Gun Democrats Signaling Openness to Limits
    December 17, 2012 WASHINGTON — Demonstrating rapidly shifting attitudes toward gun control in the aftermath of a massacre in a Connecticut school, many pro-gun Congressional Democrats — including Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader and a longstanding gun rights supporter — signaled an openness Monday to new restrictions on guns.
    ... one needs to keep in mind that in the days of our founding fathers the one shot-musket was the state of the art weapons technology.

    speaking of state-of-the-art weapons technology at the time of the Revolutionary War, many of the troops on our side had "home-grown" longrifles, aka Kentucky rifles, developed by colonial gunsmiths, which, in the hands of a skilled marksman, could hit a target at 200 yards... and were far superior to the standard-issue muskets carried by British soldiers... it's been said that the Kentucky rifle is what won the war for the insurgent Americans...

    so, yeah... the framers of the Constitution well knew what a difference it can make for folks to have the latest weapons technology available to them...

    I would never blame the NRA, that would be a true lesson in futility. The NRA is for the most part a decent organization.

    Where I would bring the NRA into this is why do they need to be involved with the federal government, they have on of the biggest lobbies in Washington. There is no need for that as the 2nd amendment is very clear as to our gun rights.
