Gun control?

April 5, 2013

Dear editor: Gun control? Or this is the what you will do and if you do not, then the elected official will pass a law that says you will. Do not pass go. Just go straight to jail....

During an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Senator Dianne Feinstein stated that expanded background checks are “not enough,” and private gun sales cannot continue because they allow terrorists to buy guns in the United States. Feinstein said private gun sales allow felons to buy firearms as well. In addition, Feinstein believes the failure of the filibuster threat against Senate gun control opens the door to her “assault weapons” ban once again.

Some folks just disagree with seeing my name! Don't like my opinions? Don't read my posts! Wouldn't want anyone to get a brain-cramp thinking too hard.

How could someone disagree with Gary's 5:15pm comment? What is it you disagree with?

If 300 federal and an additional 20,000 state gun control laws haven't stopped violent people from being violent people don't you think that maybe something besides guns is the problem.

That was the sensitive version. I could have been much less sensitive, but that's not me.

Thanks for the kind words lifelong. We shall cross keyboards another day!

"George Zimmerman didn't use.... Wait, yes he did."

What happened to all of the sensativity?

Gary no hurt feelings all's cool.

Thanks for answering my question, you see while I usually disagree with you on this issue I love to hear your point of view. While you have yet to change my mind you do make me reconsider my own views.

That's what I like about this place is hearing others' perspectives.

From my viewpoint reasonable controls are already in place just not being enforced.

I apologize for being insensitive in my other post I admit it was a bit dramatic and a insensitive way to attempt to make my point.

Sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings. My answer? Reasonable control of firearms will directly impact the number of firearm deaths. Will it stop massacres? Probably not. Tim McVeigh didn't use a gun. Jim Jones didn't use guns. George Zimmerman didn't use.... Wait, yes he did.

"So will this new gun control bill stop the massacres?"

In a word.....No.

Stick to the topics and not the people in the forum. You called me sicko and Stonewall Miserable. Why do you have to get personal?

State your case without name calling or doing your own classify of people in the forum.

I'm sorry you feel my comment was in bad taste. You simply could've stated that without name calling.

Too much to ask I guess since this is my second request.

So will this new gun control bill stop the massacres? It's simple question.

You want to pout about your taxes? Well, shrug Atlas and get lost. Comparing the IRS to violence is cold, cold-hearted and cynical. It must be awful to be as miserable a person as you are.

"People getting hurt or killed is not funny." Neither is people getting robbed, but the IRS is STILL doing a booming business. FLAT TAX FOR ALL. IT'S THE ONLY FAIR WAY.

Gary you are so right it's not funny that the government thinks it can pass more laws that they can't or won't enforce that takes away law abiding citizens rights and does nothing to fix the problem.

What happens after the first massacre once the new laws are in place?

Or do you really think this will stop such situations? I'm curious.

Amen brother! Any time some one goes nuts and starts attacking innocent people, it sickens us all. I believe the comment was made to show that if a psychotic moron wants to do something crazy, he is going to do it. If he can't get a gun, he'll get a knife. If he can't get a knife, he'll get a baseball bat. Tragedy is unavoidable. Even if you wrap yourself in bubble-wrap and sit in your house, tragedy can find you. Like the guy who fell into the sinkhole in his house. Can your laws trump God's will?

You never said anything about mental health. It was a dumb, insensitive joke. People getting hurt or killed is not funny.

Nope meant to point out that we need to get to the bottom of the mental health problem we have. Not take away the rights of law abiding citizens based on lunatics' actions!

Don't worry about the black helicopters, they fly over every week.

What you do need to look into though is your irrational fear of inanimate objects. Guns won't hurt you because they can't. Perhaps therapy could help or some education on what they can or cannot do on their own.

Colorado - first of all they are not coffins, they are burial vaults. Secondly reliable estimates put the number at around 55,000 but then again why would you trust the owner of the company. You really don't need to worry about it. I'd just concentrate on the black UN helicopters that have supposedly been flying through your backyard for the past 25 years.

"What we need is insurance against terrorist, and crooked politicians."

And a policy to cover stupid too.

The coffins are real and stored as claimed. The reason for them depends on who you ask may be benign and the number may be high but they are stored as claimed.

KareyS----we have got along just fine without a special, expensive gun owner insurance policy for over 200 years. This is simply an attempt to discourage the lawful ownership of firearms. The second amendment covers the rest and gun registration has been used in many countries a the last step before confiscation.

So a car and a gun are equal? Okay. I have to prove I can operate a car competently, register my car with the state, and insure it because I might use it to cause property damage, bodily harm or even death. So why again shouldn't the same rules apply to guns?

You tell 'em, Dale. I find it funny (sad) that our society kills unborn children but we go out of our way to spare the lives of murderers. I say we make good on the death sentence when it is handed down. EXPEDITE IT, as well. Also extend the honor of a death sentence to anyone deemed a "career criminal". If your chosen vocation is taking advantage of the lawful citizens, then adios to you as well. All of the money we would save in supporting the dregs of our society could go towards something more useful. The same with welfare. Find the dead weight that are abusing the system and prosecute them.
