This About That: Isn't "Met The Press" supposed to be a reasoned, fair, non-biased news program? Do you actually believe your audience is unable to detected the cynicism in the phrase "we reached out". Just say "we invited" and stop it with the cleverness.


For all intensive purposes those mean the same thing. Your being pendantic.

One exception? Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) told Fox News Sunday that he believed more guns are the answer to violence in schools.

"I wish to god she had had an M4 in her office," he said of Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the shooting.


Louie, you are the Prince of Derptown.

Let's put this in economic terms - why does the left want to kill jobs by discussing gun control?

1) Less firearms sales
2) Less post-trauma therapy
3) Less first responder jobs
4) Less "Sorry for your loss" greeting cards sales.
5) Less jobs for funeral homes.
6) Less jobs for medical examiners.
7) Less need for blood bank employees.

It's obvious that there is a Hallmark / Healthcare / Funeral Home / Arms Manufacturer cabal that is up against the libs.

Good luck with that syndicate.

Gun control will not prevent these kind of tragedies. this is why.

when i was 20 years old, i was 6 foot 3 and was benching 220 lbs. i imagine that is well over twice or three times the strength of the average woman teaching kindergarden classes, and i dont even consider myself to be a particularly strong man. what that means is that i could walk into a kindergarden class and easily kill the woman teaching with my bare hands. i could even bring a baseball bat or a knife to make it easier. it is possible that those weapons would be more effective because they are relatively quiet.

guns are not the problem, they are the method by which the problem occurs. the real problem is that a young man is so disgusted or discouraged about life that he wants to indescriminately kill other people and then himself.

edmo: I would love to hear some serious proposals from them on how to deal with this stuff. Or the deficit. Or the national debt. Or the debt ceiling. At least the NFL, NBA,and PGA are still non-profit organizations exempt from taxes. Yay Senate.


Good luck. I know Facebook isn't a scientific data collection method, but here's how it breaks down among my friends:

Liberal Friends: some are calling for stronger gun control. Some are calling for stronger ammunition control. Some are calling for increased investment in mental health services.

Conservative Friends: Posting pictures of candles and talking about how 20 new angels are spending Christmas with Jesus.

Farker Soze: coeyagi: Farker Soze: James F. Campbell: If you have guns in your home, you're more likely to kill or be killed by a family member or intimate acquaintance than you are to use your guns to fend off a home invasion.

I hope all you gun nuts have lots and lots and lots of guns in your houses.

And they told me gun nuts were the violent ones who wish death on others.

Gun nuts, Republicans, Christians... I could use labels all day for the special kind of asshole that thinks only about his own Rights and doesn't even want to have a discussion about improving society because they're paranoid about losing said right. You also have the Right to be killed. It would seem the only logical way to have the conversation move in a constructive direction.

OK Mao. Hope your next five year plan works splendidly. Try not to starve too many millions of farmers.

And another thing pissing me off right now is the evening news, milking this tragedy for all it's worth, right now running a list of the dead, with sad pictures and sad music. Jeez, don't these assholes realize the crazies are watching, and thinking, "Wow, what an AWESOME way of making myself notorious! Look at all the attention I could get!"

I demand the right to carry a bazooka onto a plane.

Farking watered down rights.

Arms include bazookas. Does constitution say firearms? No. IT SAYS ARMS. Does constitution mention planes? No. IT SAYS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

Sick of weasally constitution-violating NRA.

Bazookas on planes. MY RIGHT. MY RIGHT. MY RIGHT.

The guns are perfectly safe, meticulously engineered and manufactured to impeccable standards of quality and reliability unmatched in the field of consumer products.

It's the humans that are unsafe. So we need to find a means of producing better humans and weeding out the ones with safety issues and correcting them before they explode and take out bystanders.

Nezu Chiza: Sounds like 31 people who realized it would basically be a kangaroo court interview situation if they had taken the offer. I guarantee, whether I agree or not, that they would have been held accountable for a mentally challenged young man and have had no way to counter that.


Most mentally challenged are bootstrappy enough to make a mark on this world without resorting to violence. They're called Republicans.

cchris_39: skullkrusher: AverageJoe77: WTF Indeed: It's good to see that Americans from both sides of the gun issue are standing up to do nothing about making sure the mentally unstable are properly diagnosed and treated so that they don't act on the urge to murder children. oh wait...

That would require spending money on the unwashed masses. We can't have that!

How do you propose the mentally unstable are diagnosed and treated? Forced mental health checks?

You just don't get it do you. If something bad happens, more government control and more government spending can fix it. Duh.


Ah, the old "I've tried nothing and I'm all out of ideas." game. Here's tip from a pro-gun lib: If the gun lobby starts talking about mental health, then you change the subject from gun control and it's a win-win. You get to keep all your guns, and you can blame the government for not helping these people more.

I'm all for this debate; I want to see how Obama plans to make stealing guns from law abiding people, taking them to a place where guns aren't allowed, and using them to commit murder illegal. Oh wait... FYI, I live in CT and my sister is a teacher, and I would feel a lot better about her safety if teachers were allowed to receive training and keep guns secured in their desks than I would if another law were to be made for the lawless.

I wonder where people go to fire a full-auto weapon for practice. The only place I know in VA that allows it is the NRA shooting range. Then again, there aren't many people with the license required to have that kind of weapon anyway.
