    Come on people! Are we just going to sit back and pretend this epidemic of indiscriminate shooting sprees isn’t really happening? Do you really want to be led like sheep to the slaughter by your own inaction? Lamb chops and sweaters are not going to protect us and neither is the government unless we force them to take a stand and quit worrying about their own selfish political agendas and actually stick their own necks out instead of ours, calling for rational gun control nationwide immediately. There is no valid reason for an average citizen to need assault weapons or body armor. If you need a handgun to carry around with you, you better have a damn good valid reason like being a body guard or transporting diamonds or something, because saying you need a gun to protect yourself from people with guns just doesn’t cut it for the rest of us anymore. If you can’t protect your home or feed your family with a shotgun or single action dear rifle then why not? These are all valid rational questions that common sense dictates should have already been debated and acted upon if it wasn’t for greed, macho bravado and self-serving politics. It is time for all of us to realize that we are creating and manifesting our own Armageddon not just in our own country but throughout the entire world.
    Write your state representative and senator regardless of what parties they represent and let them know you expect swift and decisive action without any more endless stonewalling, flip flopping or bureaucratic nonsense. Our men, women and children are being gunned down in the streets before are very eyes for no apparent reason but that they lived. These shooting sprees are a direct threat and affront to our very right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. These maniacs do not care if their victims are democrats or republicans so why is rational gun control a political issue? The next ruthless killer is not going to base his aggression on your ethnicity, party affiliation, sexual orientation or social status; he will single you out for death simply because you exist. How about if all of us decide to choose our next president based on his abilities to give a crap about us instead of their own parties political agendas. Wouldn’t that be a surprising and refreshing change from the same old same old and empty promises of change? It is time to change our status as human sheep and choose to take action before some lunatic with an assault weapon or five semi-automatic hand guns decides to choose death for you.

    We have indulged insanity about as far as it can go. Everyone should be armed at all times.

    The shootings, while traumatic, are in no way linked. The recent shootings is in no way an omen for an even increasing number of them.

    This is not a story of chicken little.

    The shootings are in no way linked. The people aren't linked. The only "link" is that so many times the shooter was someone who was otherwise unbalanced and for whatever reason no one did anything about it.

    That, or the rule of law is just generally breaking down which is what is happening in Chicago.

    Let's hear your proposal on how you would stop criminals from getting gun? You do have a plan or is this all you have talking points for an agenda?
    You do realize the last shooting spree was done by people with a badge?

    What is your solution, besides asking government for a solution.

    I've always had extreme difficulty understanding how gun control advocates plan on convincing the CRIMINALS and the MENTALLY ILL that they aren't permitted, by law, to use firearms anymore.

    An unarmed population is a vulnerable population. Criminals will still get their weapons, and the rest of us will be shooting ducks.

    Ever heard of the Volstead Act? That worked out real well, didn't it!
