NYDN: Nancy Lanza feared son, Adam, was ‘getting worse’; told friend ‘he was burning himself with a lighter’ and that she was 'losing him' - NY Daily News

       President Obama says enough is enough with these mass killings he keeps having to attend services for. The question now becomes, just what do you do.
       Senator Dianne Feinstein had the ready-made answer on Meet the Press when she pledged to introduce a gun control bill promptly. However, so many questions are being asked, including the prison the shooters mother lived in trying to handle a now adult child who was out of control. Nancy Lanza took several rounds to the head to kick off the killing spree that lasted only minutes before police closed in.
Newtown is a Turning Point, But Turning Where ?

       Then there are the video games and the culture of violence we hear so much about.
        If I were President, I wouldn't want to do any more of these services either, but what to do about it ?  I don't know.

I say lets go for Thirty Thousand Gun Laws. We got Twenty, so Thirty won't be that tough. Think of how lovely everybody will feel and think of how many idiots will spend less time crying. And think of how meaningless the effort will be. I know I'd feeeeel better.

Hey, regarding Mehico and that Marine they are holding for ransome. Mr presidint. Give the F'n Mehicans 24 hours, then tell them we will shut down their airports until they free our innocent soldier.

I'm just kidding. We don't expect you to do anything. We realize you're just a joke. Now if there was a racial angle or if there wasn't a big tragedy opportunity going on right now you might get interested. But we know you're busy. How bout if the guy was a member of the UAW? NO? Well, it was worth a try. Have a nice Christmas, I mean holiday, Mr presidint.

I heard it this morning. Finally. Two things that made sense about this crime. And it wasn't a TRAGEDY, it was a CRIME.

First off, theres a guy who teaches at West Point who trains police and military named David Grossman. He spoke of the need to address HATE, and how a generation of our kids are now desensitized about killing, violence, and assaulting others. He is worth reading and looking into. His philosophy is not fixated on gun fear, a disease many suffer from.

The second thing that I heard was professionals stating that what is needed is new help for people who are suffering from mental illness. We have stigmatized these people to a point where they do not seek help. Misdiagnosis is the norm. We have people reporting people who have no idea of what they are talking about, and others who need help who have no place to turn. We certainly don't have extra money right now, but it is something that needs to be addressed.

More gun laws will make people feel good. They won't make people safer. There are always ways to kill. Sadly, I think we haven't seen anything yet. This is a dangerous world. Being fixated on guns is not smart. Politically it may be cool, but its not the answer.

It sure was disgusting to hear the president go to a vigil and imply he would unilaterally enact new gun control laws using the power of his office. Never let a crises go to waste.

The great GWB would have simply gone and said some consoling words and let it alone.

At least Obama is consistent. He doesn't want Americans to have arms to be able to defend the selves. And he doesn't want our ambassadors to be able to defend themselves either.

Well, none of this should come as any surprise. If he really wants to do something about gun violence he should head back to Chicago. They're the champs. Blacks kill each other at ten times the rate white communities do. You'd think he would care. But then again he's not really black. Only during campaigns.

He also said, "We need to be in this all together," his socialist agenda. It would probably be a safer America if all the guns were gone. Maybe we should be looking at the violent videos and computer games our kiddies are watching. The programs make killing fun and games. The killer of those people was a mentally deranged kid who may have not been correctly administered to. He was nuts!

All of the NRA guys are trying to rationalize this whole horrible incident away.
We should control anger, not guns. We should control movies and video games and not guns. We already have laws on the books, let's not try to strengthen them, it would be a waste of time. etc. etc. etc.
The simple bottom line is, if this guy was just angry or screwed-up from playing too many videos, he could have gone in the school and angrily punched somebody.
Instead, BECAUSE he had automatic weapons he killed 26 people, including 21 1st graders. The guns made all of the difference in the world for those who died. A fact that should haunt you NRA guys for years to come.
Let's get a bill through the Senate, and send it to the House banning automatic weapons, and then watch C-Span while the Neo-Cons in the House bury themselves even further while trying to defend the positions of the NRA.
Someone wrote earlier that we need a movement in this country like MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers) to end this. MAAW (Mothers Against Automatic Weapons) will be next.

We live at a time when death is too rare and so every time there is a death we want to come up with a knee jerk law to prevent it from happening again. Those that would give up their freedom for security deserve neither...and will get neither.

There was a time when blood lust had many outlets. Fourteen million brothers, cousins and strangers were able to slaughter each other in the civil war. Many of them were pubescent boys. I believe even Washington was able to hang his first subordinate soldier when he was but 19 years old.

Today all we have is football or video games with few options for the real thing. Iraq and Afghanistan just don't offer the opportunity to kill that the old wars did. And if you do kill, you have to explain yourself. The national guard cannot shoot students anymore and boarder patrol agents are more of a target than an armed defense.

I suppose you can still kill thousands if you are a nurse or hospital. But its not the same thing.

Never, never arm teachers or principles with a gun. Maybe a tazer. That would be safer. A gun may be left on a desk and picked up by a student and - band! A tazer is the way to go!

We settled that already, 3:54. No one with an education degree appears to have the maturity to own a gun. NO TEACHERS WITH GUNS. Save the kids. That mother who raised the killer was a teacher. Nuff said.

“All We Are Saying I Give Gun Control a Chance”

The late and great John Lennon, the victim of an assassins bullet in front of the Dakota was singing to me today and it sounded like this, "All we are saying is give 'Gun Control' a chance ... Yah everybody, All we are saying is give 'Gun Control' a chance..." If there is a heaven and I believe there is, I hope the victims of the Newtown’s slaughter are close to Mr. Lennon can find comfort in his company. It's clear now that many of the children slaughtered there, last view of life was a 'Gun' barrel at close range staring them in the face, before their brains were blow all over the room. As ghastly as that image is I'm also horrified by the needless images that await us if we fail to seize upon every possibility to stop gun violence in America that legislation affords us.

Senator Schumer counseled the left on the fact that a 2nd Amendment exists in our country. Did anyone forget that a 2nd Amendment exists in our Country? If anyone had that notion the NRA would happily remind us Senator Schumer. Advocates of 'Gun Control' do not seek to eliminate the 2nd Amendment, they just don't see how advocating for 'Gun Control' to avoid tragedies like the one that occurred in Newtown, Ct., implies we want to eliminate the 2nd Amendment or deny hunters and other gun owners their Constitutional Rights when the truth is we just want to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't own them in the first place. The regulated distribution of fire arms in America, there clearly needs to be refined licensing requirements to own and keep fire arms. The ribald right has no trouble toughening voter registration laws, so let's encourage them to be just as open minded about gun control laws.

Why is it that we keep hearing from those who are over the top partisan, about gun ownership and the 2nd amendment, and see regulating guns and the people that own guns as the problem? The problem is that too many unstable people have access to firearms, and any regulations, or gun counseling programs can only help to possibly avoid tragedy. No it’s not a full proof way to avoid future tragedy, but it may help cut the number of tragedies down in the future. It’s not going to take guns out of the hands of hunters, etc. The second Amendment is here to stay, but what's wrong with controlling how and when guns are purchased, and evaluating people's mental stability to determine if their a risk, to their community and themselves on an ongoing basis?

A license renewal program, with mandatory psychological testing of gun owners would be a good start. We need to start programs that help to prevent people with violent backgrounds and psych histories from owning guns, especially if they're already judged to be a danger to society. The problem with the NRA is that they lobby our Representatives, and then say that any new restrictions on gun sales or ownership is an ‘assault’ on the 2nd Amendment, while they show little concern for the potential for more ‘assaults’ by crazed gun owners on society. Let's begin to pass stricter gun laws now for all our safety, including the safety of law abiding gun owners, who might not be carrying a weapon when a crazed killer appears with one.

MMM is changing his tune again, The other posts talk of change in the amount of firearms in the country, he cited first 250million then 300 million(must of had sales over the weekend) MMM let's look at the facts. The assault gun ban was in 2004 it expired, the individual states cose to renew or not renew the provisions of the law. The Republic of NY chose to renew parts of the law like magazine capacity 10 rounds, the rest like the assault rifle was not, you still have to fill out paperwork and go through the FBI check to buy a rifle or shotgun. NYS also has a program of testing bullets and it costs 35million its been used once. If youre talking testing before you buy a rifle or shotgun who administers it? The state?the county? the store? Think about MMM, all the local candidates were pictured with rifles or shotguns during the elections, evn MMM fav Mr. Owens got the nod from the NRA, and MMM backed him and publicly camapigned for him.

What about your children's hands? How many more need to be cold and dead?

This blog is an advertisement for strong 'Gun Control' laws and the need for pyschological testing of gun owners on a yearly or bi-yearly basis. The nation mourns and the gun advocates here ignore the pain of their fellow Americans and engage in sloganeering against so called liberals. Sick stuff!

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. >From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT'S A NO BRAINER!
DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

Yes Mikey, the nation mourns, and our emotions are real. Too bad all your solutions and proposals are not. You are such a dishonest political hack you have no problem stooping so low as to use the deaths of children to further your own sick political agenda. You know what you push won't work, yet you play on fears to promote it anyway? What a man you are.

ANON 10:13 PM

This blog has many voices that speak to the sanity that 'Gun Control' will afford Americans when enacted. Your personal attacks on me are laughable, no one could take them seriously, and I have nothing but concern for the safety of American citizens. Can you and the NRA say the same? I doubt it. The NRA is a mouthpiece for gun makers, and you're a mouthpiece for the deranged, who see nothing wrong with Automatic weapons killing innocents. Take a Hike!
