    If her guns had been taken away from her she'd still be alive.

    And so would 26 others.

    Bullshit. Someone who was willing to murder someone and steal their firearms to commit a crime would have gotten a hold of them somehow, some way. A ban on legal guns does nothing to disarm criminals. Unless you think you can somehow magically make guns simply go away?

    Black market guns will always exist and get into criminal hands. You can't stop that with more laws or by disarming law-abiding citizens. You can't put 200 year old technology back into the genie bottle. Too many guns already exist and the capacity to make them is too easy to come by. We're not talking about nuclear weapons here, where it takes massive resources and high technology and scientific expertise. It's 19th century technology. Basic chemistry and blacksmith tools can make guns. Anyone can learn how.

    As long as there is a demand, the supply will exist to meet it no matter how draconian you make the laws. Anyone who doesn't understand this hasn't been paying attention.

      to get them...

      A law abiding gun owner failed to secure her guns from her family and was killed with them. Those guns were then used to kill many others.

      It is tragic, but this has no resemblance to some random thief stealing her weapons.

    •  funny, I don't recall weekly stories (0+ / 0-)

      of gun massacres anywhere else in the world... but we are treated to this crap on a daily basis.  There was just a shootout in a theater a few days ago.

      You fucking gun nuts can all go to hell.
