Gunman shot his way into school building, Connecticut governor says – This Just In - Blogs

   An assault weapons ban is already drafted and will be introduced in Congress in early January.
   The spokesman for the Newtown Police says he doesn't see how classes will ever be held again at the Sandy Hook building, but the local superintendent, who has been strangely absent from pressers, is said to be preparing a plan for resumption of school.
     CT State Police say they have had enough with erroneous information being transmitted over the Internet from those claiming to be in the know. Good luck in stopping all that.
     The Governor of Connecticut says the shooter killed himself only when he heard police entering the building.
     In communities everywhere, including here, sympathies are being expressed to the people of Newtown.

Are Americans Nut Cases?

I’m willing to check it out based on the statements of your average gun owner talking about his right to own guns; lots of guns. Well let’s just say I’m concerned. An estimated 300,000,000 million guns in American citizen's hands, probably ensures that the likelihood of any American getting shot is higher than US Citizens care to think about. We are a nation in love with guns. Why? The mythology of the gun runs through our history from the Revolutionary War ‘Minute Men’ and gun totting Cowboys, to the gangster mythology as romanticized in the ‘Godfather’ series. From Sam Peckingpah's movies, ‘Bonnie and Clyde, and ‘The Wild Bunch’ we like the idea of men of action taking the law into their own hands, on behalf of the law or against the law, Americans are equal opportunity killers.

We have a reservoir of trained gun users in this Country as well from the Military, which has kept Americans all over this Country cutting edge in their first hand knowledge of Assault weapons, etc. Now a man or a woman who defends this Country only has my deepest admiration. The trauma of war has however shown that the passage into civilian life can at times be rocky for veterans on many levels. I only use Veterans with Post Traumatic Disorder, as an example of why psychological evaluation is a good idea before anyone can buy a gun.

I actually believe the stress of everyday living in civilian life is enough to push a lot of us over the edge. Civilians shouldn’t be allowed to own, or buy a gun without proof of a yearly psychological evaluation examination, and proof of having attended an anger management class. We might get lucky and weed out people who have lost it, or are near losing it mentally speaking, and thereby avert tragedy like we saw yesterday in Newtown, CT. Are a high percentage of Americans borderline nut cases? I’m willing to check it out based on the statements of your average gun owner talking about gun rights. Let’s just say after hearing an NRA member talk about guns, I’m eager to talk about Gun Control in America.

I think the average American may in fact be walking a thin line between sanity and madness. I volunteer to be tested first in any case. I think I only have a 50/50 chance of passing, but I’m not going to let pride get in the way, I want the Gun Culture’ in America to change and I’m willing to change to and I don’t want to own a gun. I wouldn’t sell myself a gun. The problem is there are millions of NRA members who would be glad to sell me a bunch of guns. I’m tired of waiting for the NRA to help American citizens out, by backing sensible legislation for Gun Control, to avert these horrible shootings that leave us all numb. Let’s change America’s gun culture now!

You know that yearly psychological exam you mentioned. That might not be a bad idea for all those elected/appointed to public office.

And the stupidity from Mikey continues to flow. We try to show him how Chicago, with the toughest gun control laws in the nation, has the highest murder rate. But it has no effect. We must conclude that Mikey has no interest whatsoever in fighting crime. He still thinks more laws, on top of the 20,000 we already have in this country, will do the trick. I do not know how to debate with stupidity. I can only conclude that political expediency is what matters to Mikey. He was the first out of the box trying to make hay of this crime. I don't think he cares about the victims at all. This is all about the opportunity to gain something politically during a time of mourning. To think our man Dannie fought hard for our freedoms that Mikey would so gladly give away for politics. Ironic.

How do we get those people who aren't gun owners but gun possessors to check in for the annual psychological exams??

I'm thinking people who obtain guns legally aren't necessarily the problem.

The loss of life in Oslo was 3 times that of Newtown with another 125 wounded in a country with such tight gun control that the police had to stop and arm themselves before responding to the massacre.
