I could sort of get behind this right to self-defense if it excluded semi-automatic weapons.Who needs to have a gun that can mow down a large number of people in a few minutes?

Re: 28 dead, including 20 children and the shooter in Connecticut school shooting

Horrible event, no words to describe it. Maybe the worst part is the fact that it isn't an incident, but a pattern..

In the last 30 years of mass shootings in US, in not one single case was the killing stopped by a civilian using a gun

The rate of people killed by guns in the US is 19.5 times higher than similar high-income countries in the world.

In the last 30 years since 1982, America has mourned at least 61 mass murders. Below is a timeline of mass shootings in the US since the Columbine High massacre:

On Friday morning, 27 people were reportedly shot and killed at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, CT. According to sources, 20 of these casualties were children. This is the second mass shooting in the US this week, after a gunman opened fire in an Oregon shopping mall on Tuesday, killing 2.

Re: 28 dead, including 20 children and the shooter in Connecticut school shooting

I am an American with many guns, I was voted most likely to get a gun and go to the mall. I have never hurt anyone , guns do not kill fucked up people with guns kill people . and I for one would not be upset if I had to give in my guns. 1 million sane people with guns does not justify 20 insane people with guns

If there was a way to get rid of ALL the guns, I'd gladly give mine up.

Re: Twenty children, 8 others dead in Connecticut school shooting massacre

This is the photo of the gunman taken in 2005. He is Adam Lanza, not Ryan Lanza. That was his brother. Authorities originally thought it was Ryan because Adam was carrying his brother's ID at the time. The news just said they found more guns in the school. They were not his, they belonged to his mother. Why the fuck would an elementary school teacher have all these weapons???
