Wait, that's not possible. The Democrats control 87% of the state legislature in Massachusetts. It should be the greatest state in the history of the union for that reason.

bmihura: For example: All mass shootings in United States history (outside of war, of course) have occurred in gun-free zones. Yes, even Fort Hood!

For a shooting to be declared a mass shooting, it must first be determined that the shooting occurred in a gun-free zone.  Otherwise it's just a shooting.

The entire country is a murder-free zone, but they keep happening.

Clearly, we shouldn't bother to have laws against murder.

Stinger: MikeSass:

What I would really like to do is to put those whiny parents from Newtown that Obama pimped to the country the other day in a room with the parents of the kids who died in Oklahoma City and see if the Newtown parents can convince the OKC parents that gun laws will save lives.

What I would really like is to put you in a room with two of my closest friends, whose 6 year old daughter Avielle Richman, their only child, was killed on December 14th at Sandy Hook Elementary, and have you explain why you think they're "whiny" and how Obama is shamelessly "pimping" them.  Incidentally, the parents of kids from OKC, Columbine, Aurora, and other mass killings in the U.S. have been extremely supportive of the Newtown parents.  I guess when you experience arguably the most painful tragedy possible in life you tend to feel a bond of empathy.

Shiat just got real.  I wish I were making this up.  I'm helping get a professionally-designed website together for their non-profit, The Avielle Foundation.

So would you say that you are rather emotional about passing a law?

Wait...Mississippi has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the country.  But that can't be right, it also has the highest abstinence-only educational system!

enik: And Mumbles Menino will still, in his infinite lack of wisdom, assume that a situation like this can only be solved by enacting more laws.

Has there even been a more ignorant and illogical person than an anti-gunner? No, there really hasn't.

Yes, sweetie, we all need guns, all the time, lots of guns, nothing else will make us safe. From all the guns.

/You must be really scared about mental health checks for gun ownership.
