A guide to mass shootings in America
« on: January 13, 2013, 07:05:08 AM »
I found this article very informative.  So many are calling for a ban on assault weapons when the majority of guns used in these crimes are semi-auto pistols.  The interactive map is cool.  Just mouse over the color dots to get the info of a particular shooting.

'Assault weapons' is a vague term and is being picked up by the any person-any gun-anywhere brigade in a desperate attempt to fool the ignorant. The main thrust for change, as far as I can tell, is a ban on long barrelled semi-automatics and high capacity magazines for hand guns.

Remember that assault weapons for the Battle of Hastings, were swords and crossbows...  The US Constitution points toward volunteers having weapons roughly on par with the opposing army; hence assault "style" weapons would be acceptable.  Real (fully automatic) assault weapons simply aren't available to just anyone.

The Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo has said common sense on gun ownership had been elusive for far too many years.

Last night, New York became the first state to introduce tougher gun ownership laws, the day before President Obama is expected to announce his own plans for more stringent national measures.

The National Rifle Association called the tighter rules ''draconian'' and said they will have no impact on public safety.

The NRA seems to take every American for a complete idiot, now embarrassing the educated world with an advertisement: "when the president's kids are protected with guns, every kid should be 'protected' by guns". America's national image obviously isn't of any concern to them! :(

Protection For Obama's Kids, Gun-Free Zones For Ours?


That's plain disgusting! :cussing

The NRA seems to have lost touch with reality, becoming hell bent on nothing other than protecting the gun industry and boosting its sales.

How about this one, seen on Piers Morgan again this morning. Should such an empty headed, over-made-up poseur of a grinning motormouth be allowed to handle a potato peeler, let alone a gun.

The burning questions regarding her are:

1. Does the NRA pay for her makeup?

2. Is she capable of logical thought?
