Why US Gov does nothing about Mass Shootings in USA such as Las Vegas?

There has been another mass shooting in USA, this time in Vegas where an astonishing 59 Americans were Killed and 500+ injured! And there are such mass shootings in USA one after another, such as Sandy Hook massacre 27 Americans Killed, Orlando 49 Killed, etc., but US Government and Politicians do nothing to stop these massacres! Why is that? As a father, husband, and a Christian I find this lack of action by US Government to stop these massacre of American People to be astounding! On that note, here in UK we had a Mass shooting more than 20 Years ago, Dunblane March 1996 where a gunman killed 18. Right after we passed strict Gun laws, as a result there have been almost no mass shootings in UK since, why cant USA Government (People) do same? Answer is of course NRA that spend $30-Mill for Trump election. So will US Government (Politicians) do nothing again? Or will they brand NRA a Terrorist Organization and confiscate its assets as they (rightly) do so when a Muslim sounding Organization supports killing of American People.

You had your answer to this question at further display when Trump appeared at the NRA meeting in Dallas the other day, and Championed the insane state of Gun laws in USA, rather than having been impeached by now for not having done anything to Stop the slaughter of American People due to these insane Gun laws, from 59 Americans massacred in Vegas to 17 students massacred in Parkland. And he did it with one lie after another, such as referring to mass shooting in France, 2 Years ago, when France has 0.1% of Murders, repeat France has 0.1% of Murders, by Guns compared to USA with insane Gun laws. Enjoy these True Enemies within:

Yes, it is really astonishing demonstration of how Trump and the Wall Street right-wing Cabal that make this sociopath possible, do not give a SQUAT about American People. I mean he mentioned one of the 2 mass shootings in France which they have had in 20 Years, as an argument against sensible Gun controls, but the slime bag did not mention the average of mass shooting per Month that we have in USA from Colombine, to Sandy Hook, to Aurora, to Vegas to Park land, or that more Americans were

dead in Chicago alone over the last year than were shot dead in entire France over the last 5 Years, including those shot is the mass shooting that he referred to. Really in any other Country people such as Trump/Pence/NRA that support one mass shooting of American people after another, would be prosecuted for Treason, in this Upside down country we have thanks to ultra right-wing Media, these f***s call themselves "Patriots"!

Faxonly,

This country has needed some type of sensible gun control for many years. People of this country need to get over our "cowboy" attitude, and realize that this country is not the old West.

We all need to start behaving like civilized people instead of bloodthirsty animals.

Donald Trump, and his minions, allow themselves to be at the beck and call of the National Rifle Association (NRA). Most politicians in this country have sold out to the gun lobby.

If we simply applied the existing law only the law-abiding would own guns. The left-wing radicals and their media vilify the good guy and protect the criminals.
It is against federal law to make a false statement on a form for a gun purchase. If bleeding heart liberals would stop weakening the law most of the mass shootings would never have happened.

Thom,

The shootings happened because right-wingers and the NRA have allowed assault weapons to be sold, in the first place.

The NRA has been fighting against background checks for years. If you don't have anything to hide, then why fight background checks?

Existing gun laws haven't done a damn thing, and you know it.

Wheeler ANY semi-automatic rifle available to the civilian population, of the U.S., FOR OVER A CENTURY has the same rate of fire as the AR-15 or AK-47 - NO DIFFERENCE.
NO assault weapons are sold to ANY individual, without a special license and exhaustive background check, in the U.S.
Making a false statement on the purchase documentation for a firearm is a felony and prison is the prescribed punishment. Liberal activist judges and lawyers keep the bad guys on the streets.

Conservatives are America's "law and order" advocates. WE WANT THESE PEOPLE TO BE IN PRISON, FOR THE FALSE APPLICATION, BEFORE THEY MAKE THE PURCHASE.
It is the bleeding heart liberals from the corrupt and criminal, corporate left-wing who constantly impede the process. Please, try to keep up, on his issue.
IT ISN'T GUNS OR THE NRA!

Wheeler, did I again use big words or type too fast for you?
WE DO NOT NEED ANY FURTHER GUN CONTROL LAWS.
The NRA is a Second Amendment group that knows and understands this.
If every person, who falsely applied to purchase a gun was prosecuted for that felony, they would end up in prison and as a felon NEVER BE ABLE TO TOUCH A GUN AGAIN.
It is the courts who are causing the problem. As I said, try to keep up.

If you are one of the morons, who vote Democrat, your corrupt party wants ALL felons to get back their right to vote AND own a gun.
The Democrats will do anything to get votes, including re-arm convicted felons. You left-wingers complain about the Republicans, while you vote against them, to INCREASE MURDER RATES AND GET MORE CHILDREN SHOT.

Thom,

It's amazing the way you always get things the opposite of what they actually are. The Democrats want background checks, which would prevent any convicted felon from illegally possessing a firearm.

It's hard to believe that you even believe your own b***.

Democide is murder of any person or people by their government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder". Government-sponsored large-scale killings for racial or political during the 20th century is estimated at 262 million.

Nazi gun laws of 1938 specifically banned Jewish persons from obtaining a license to manufacture firearms or ammunition. Approximately eight months after enacting the 1938 Nazi gun laws, Hitler imposed regulations prohibiting Jewish persons from possessing any dangerous weapons, including firearms.

Hitler had it in for the Jews, so he first disarmed them before carrying out his murderous campaign them. And unable to resist, millions died.

The founders of our country understood the potential dangers of any government, and crafted the 2nd Amendment to permit individual citizens to protect themselves from their government. What tool would you prefer to have at your disposal to defend your family against our government, perhaps a pocket knife. ]

Thank you for proving YET again what UTTER lunatics so many American People have become in USA thanks to the crap that pours of Wall Street based right-wing Media by saying such crap. After all you F***G Moron, strict Gun laws/bans have been put into place by the Conservative parties in UK, Australia, etc. as a result of which they have had ZERO Mass shooting in 20 Years.

So are you calling the Conservative parties in UK, Australia, etc. to be Nazi Hitler?

You pinheads have no "poin", Flacidly. Once again you have made yourself the poster child of the corrupt left-wing. Your combination of ignorance and false knowledge leaves you uniquely unprepared to comment on any subject, but most especially medical health, gun rights, conservatism and mass shootings.
Why not apply your "talents" to something you can actually handle, like comic book reviews or Sasquatch population estimates?

The first thing you Nazis, Klansmen, Democrats or communists do is shift any blame onto the good guys, of which I am one. I have lived my life as a pro-Constitutional, pro-American conservative.

Very telling that this Republican lunatic, did NOT answer the question:

For they have all supported and enacted their strict Gun bans in UK, Australia,

So you see the fact that Republicans and right-wing Media in USA, cannot answer this question, the fact that their answer to everything is Nazi Hitler Nazi Hitler, is just damning proof of what lunatics Trump Republicans are and how Fox, etc. have made them so.

Flacidly, you didn't ask me any question, you imbecile. You were responding to S.E. Since you have trouble figuring these things out, I will answer.
NO what is known as a conservative in Europe is what we call a liberal here, which amounts to a left-wing mix of both communist and Nazi ideas.
The NHS, for instance, was a Nazi scheme to deprive Jews and others of health care at the beginning of Hitler's "final solution". True to form, Jews are still the objects of scorn all over...

In the U.S. Republican business owners don't deny employment based on color, religion, sexual orientation or political affiliation. Liberal business owners discriminate.

Thom,

As usual, you do the usual conservative thing and attempt to distract people from your real agenda, which is, to turn the United States into some kind of fascist state where everyone is allowed to be a gunslinger.

You always identify me as something that I'm not. I'm a progressive member of the Green party who supports Sen. Bernie Sanders. You would also think that I am an anti-capitalist and socialist. Get it right, jack-off!

As usual, you have got it backwards. Big surprise!

Conservative business owners only do not discriminate because it is against the law to discriminate. If conservatives had their way, these antidiscrimination laws would not exist because conservatives, like yourself, always fight against any type of regulation, blaming it on "the nanny state".

Liberal business owners, on the other hand, already know that discrimination against anyone is wrong.

Over the past several months, I have come to realize that Thom doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. He is just another propaganda machine, regurgitating whatever he sees on Breitbart or Fox news.

He, like most right-wingers, have no real brains of their own. In some ways, I suppose we should all feel sorry for them because they are nothing more than robots.

What a bunch of idiots you morons turned out to be. Did you have to leave your skinhead meeting just to answer me?
"I'm a progressive member of the Green party who supports Sen. Bernie Sanders." that is an anti-American admission if I ever heard one. So you aren't the 0bama type of left-wing Nazi, now you instead claim to be a left-wing Stalinist. Well, I'm sure glad you made up your feeble little mind, Wheeler.

Thom,

Since skinheads are usually white supremacist, you are much better suited to attend one of their meetings that I am. Remember, you're the right wing racist in the group. Please don't forget your place.

Being a member of the Green party who supports Bernie Sanders is certainly not an un-American admission no matter how much you stretch your already twisted mind.

The major point I do have is that right-wing racist like you should not be allowed here.

Wheeler, as a former anti-segregation protester in the South, under Eisenhower and probably the only one of that era still alive, I know racists very well and you fit the mold exactly.
If I had any problem, with race, I wouldn't have lived in Jamaica for over a decade or be in a mixed race marriage for just under 49 years.
You left-wing racists don't have any place freely walking the streets of America. Moreover that you vote communist-lite isn't exactly patrioic or anything to brag about.

You would be surprised (or appalled) how many right-wingers like Thom do this. They actually try to seal the argument that Adolf Hitler was a lefty. They do the same thing about Mussolini.

Personally, I wrote off Thom as being psychotic, not to mention sociopathic, a long time ago. Sometimes, it's best to just leave crazy people alone, especially those with Internet access.

"All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state."

Both were totalitarian, thus left-wing philosophies. You keep forgetting that the universally accepted political puts total control by the government at the extreme left, anarchy at the extreme right and republicanism at the center.
Walker, why are you and the others, having such difficulty admitting your extremist views?
Your two idols, quoted above, were proud of their extremism.

Thom,

For a minute, I actually thought you were going to give me a credible source. I don't consider a website that touts Ayn Rand and her philosophy of "objectivism" as a credible source.

The article you sent was under a section called, Ayn Rand, and her philosophy of objectivism.

If you actually believe this type of b***, that really explains a lot about how you come to some of the off-base conclusions you espouse like they were the gospel.

Thom,

The whole website was primarily centered around the teachings of Ayn Rand and her philosophy of objectivism. There is no way that you can call the credible website, because it doesn't even try to be neutral.

No matter, because you're wrong about the political spectrum. Nazis and fascists are considered to be far right, not left-wing as you claim.

Wheeler, at least admit that your ignorance is self-imposed. The first site is for a definition only the second is Dinesh d'Souza for an explanation.
The left-wing took over the Democrat Party totally by 1971, but for years before, they tried to legitimize themselves by shifting the blame of racism and segregation to the Republican opposition. As they slid further left they tried to make it look as if the Republicans instead moved to the right. It doesn't take a lofty intellect to understand...

...that any party that defends a country's constitution is and can only be centrist. But apparently, you are blind to the obvious.
You read Hitler explain what his party was, while Mussolini made government a religion and d'Souza explained both very well.
I don't take you for a moron, so just admit that you don't care that the left spawned all of the worst sociopolitical scourges that ever hit the planet. Just stop with the lies about the Republicans, the only honorable political party we have.

Thom,

I will not admit to anything that isn't true. Most Republicans, who were opponents of Barack Obama were racist, although they hid it very well.

A few moderate Republicans, who are at sometimes willing to be bipartisan, have some sense of honor, but most Republicans would not even define the word honor if you held a gun to their heads.

If they had any honor, they wouldn't try so hard to cut social programs that help poor people as much as they do. Honorable people don't try to starve us.

Mmerlinn,

Perhaps I would, if there were more employment opportunities for 62-year-old disabled man, in a wheelchair, and on a ventilator. My SMA (spinal muscle atrophy) has always made it difficult me and others like me to work.

If your definition of "pigging out" is living off of $1148 per month, I guess I fit that definition. However, in the real world (something which you are not part of), $1148 per month doesn't go very far.

Wheelie, I feel for your disabilities. It is NOT my intention to minimize them at all.

$1148 does not go far at all, but I live on LESS than that. Of course, though I am much older than you, I can still outwork most twenty-somethings, so have opportunities to work that do not exist for anyone with disabilities.

That said, there must be things you can do to earn more money. Like writing? You write here. Why not find a way to sell that service to someone?

Wheeler, you ALWAYS "miss" the point. Republicans did not vote against 0bama on the basis of race. Republicans have always had black politicians (who actually faced racist attacks from Democrats).
0bama didn't get the Republican vote because he had no experience, espoused leftist, anti-American, racist views, had long-term relationships with domestic terrorists and hid his shady past.
Republicans will seldom be bipartisan when the other side wants to break the law or undermine the Constitution.

Because Trump Republican lunatics, aka Israeli agents, brain washed by right-wing Media such as Fox, CNBC, Wall Street Journal, etc. do not give a squat about American People. And you have had further reminders of this with Massacres of American People in Texas, Parkland Fl, etc.. So the real questions are:

1- How is it that the US Military does not defend the American People from these Enemies within, since they are sworn to "Defend US from Foreign and Domestic Enemies.." and far more American People from Vegas to Parkland Fl are being killed by insane policies of Trump Republican lunatics than ISIS has killed and ISIS is considered a great enemy!

2- Why arent American People in the street by 10s of Millions bringing these enemies within to justice?

Well there has been another mass shooting in USA, this time in a Texas Church.
And yet US Gov, as defined by Repubs Dems and Big Wall Street Media/Money, has done nothing about the Vegas shooting as they will do nothing about this Texas mass shooting, instead they have the buffoon Trump in Asia, providing 10s of Billions of Dollars of Free Military to the richer Asian countries such as Japan, S Korea, etc. talking about multi Trillion Dollar War on North Korea that has done nothing to American People while we are having one mass shooting massacre of American People in USA after another. Really sick :(

Yes, very sad and True :(
So we have yet another Mass shooting in USA, almost a Weekly affair now, and all Republicans and right-wing Media such as the psychos on Fox say is:
"Our prayers are with the victims"
"The hero cops and 1st respondents deserve lots of praise"
etc.

rather than take the steps that other Democracies such as Uk taken when such horrific acts occurred as a result, which is ban assault weapons and hand guns, as result of which UK has not had mass shooting in 20 years.

Mass shootings are horrible events that most often are ended by a GOOD GUY, with a gun.
In France over 80 people were run down and crushed by a TRUCK, because no private citizens were armed and able to stop the bloodshed.
When there are only seconds to act, the police are still minutes away.
Require that the head of every household submit to drug and sanity testing, take a gun safety course and be certified by the NRA in safety and marksmanship. Issue them a gun on a concealed carry basis...

...charging them with its maintenance. Wipe out all gun-free zones.
Not every head of a household will follow along, but of those who do, more will take a stand against the common criminals, gang bangers and terrorists trying to destroy our society. The law of the land will once again reign supreme.

Switzerland has the highest gun ownership in the world (even higher than the U.S.) largely due to government laws. If guns cause gun shootings, WHY don't we see mass shootings EVERY DAY there?

Fardoush,

Back to your original question, the reason why Trump has done something about gun control is simply that he belongs to the NRA, like most politicians in Washington. If you remember correctly, he not only ran on an extremely pro-gun platform, but also received large campaign contributions from the NRA.

Expecting Trump to give a damn about a few poor people, gunned down in a church in Texas, is expecting way too much. It simply doesn't give a damn.

Switzerland has had ZERO mass shootings because they have many Socialized services such as universal socialized Healthcare so that there virtually no uninsured residents in Switzerland, so someone with Mental health

issues, which of course is the case with someone who goes Mental and hence they kill a mass of People, can get the Mental healthcare they need, but here in USA we do not have universal socialized Healthcare, thanks to Democrats, Republicans and Wall Street based Media, so someone with Mental healthcare can not get the care they need and when you combine that with easy access to Guns we have, results in USA having one mass shooting after another.

And on top of universal socialized Healthcare,

Switzerland has many other Socialized services, such as Free College education, Free for Taxes their people pay, as a result of which their People do not feel trapped and desperate as is the case with so many in USA, and again when you combine that with insane Guns we have, results in USA having one mass shooting after another.

Reporter, thanks for bitch slapping that mmerlinn Repuke with facts. But what is amazing is how can these people allude to Switzerland as an argument for Gun policies they support, without asking the question: WHY is it that Switzerland has not had a mass shooting in 50 Years, while USA has one mass shooting on average per Month? WHY cannot these Mother FUKERS ask this question and answer it!!!

Well the answers are, as you noted Switzerland like all other European Nations has Universal

socialized healthcare so a person with mental illness, which is of course the case with someone who goes on mass killing, can get the mental and other healthcare they need. But there are other answers too, such as the fact that Switzerland has not waged War on another Country for more than 100 Years, contrast that with USA which is engaged in War after War, which Wars of course require US Media to hate-monger and fear-monger about other People up the wazooo which of course blows back on us.

If you dolts would listen to the more intelligent posters, like mmerlinn, you would not be in a constant state of denial. You complain about guns, but overlook 50 years of jailhouse interviews which show that over 90% of violent crimes and homicides are committed by people, who self-identify as liberals and/or Democrats. Those numbers more than suggest that members of America's left-wing are a much greater danger to their fellow man than anyone else.

Getting rid of the TOOLS that criminals use will NEVER solve the crime problem. Look at the UK for example, basically no guns, but daylight home invasions are out of sight simply because home owners have NO LETHAL force to prevent home invasions, AND THE CRIMINALS KNOW THAT.

MM, 1st where did you get the fact that in "UK for example, basically no guns, but daylight home invasions are out of sight"? Or do you Republican lunatics have no use for facts and just feel you can rant without being fact checked?

2nd, UK has had ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years since they passed strict Gun laws. And UK has Gun death rates that are 0.1% of USA. And you are such nut job to ignore all these facts and instead spew the lie you have! Amazing, but this sort of sh&t pours our of Fox.

Moreover, you Republican Trump slime bag True Enemy within, the article you posted does not list even 1 Mass shooting in UK, vs one mass shooting after another in USA, because of the FACT that:

UK has had ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years since they passed strict Gun laws. And Trump Republicans know these facts, OF COURSE, yet they do nothing about this for American People. And instead they pass a Huge Tax cut for the Rich, as result of which Wall Street hitting Record HIGHs for their tool Trump

As long as the U.S. has liberals, Democrats and progressives we will have homicides, even mass shootings.
The only way to rid ourselves of these thugs is through honest education, as opposed to the corrupt left-wing run public school system that now indoctrinates our children and the corporate left-wing media brainwashing the otherwise ill informed populace.
You folks are the pitiful products of a system purposely undermined and corrupted by the anti-American left.
How many mass shootings...

The left-wing corruption, bigotry and malfeasance is evident every day that President Trump is in office and their mental enslavement of dolts, like you, only serves to keep hate the left's only product.

From answers of the Republican Trump fans here, one can conclude that Republicans do not give a squat about American People, unless of course for Americans Killed by Muslims to then wage more Wars on Muslims Countries. That is why they do NOTHING to stop the Mass Shootings in USA such as Las Vegas, as the Conservative parties in Uk, Australia, etc. did by passing strict Gun controls 20 Years ago as result of which they have had ZERO mass shootings in 20 Years.
Really Republicans are the Enemy :(

"Squat" is what you and your ilk give for the American people, Fardouche. Every year over 2,000,000 crimes are PREVENTED by gun owners without firing a shot. If they did not have their guns, you could add over 2,000,000 more to your list of crime victims. It appears that you want criminals in charge of America. Well, tough luck, she lost the presidency.

The "good guy with a gun" has become the standard argument of you right wingers who are so paranoid about sensible gun legislation.

Here is a great example of what I'm talking about:

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/11/6/16612014/sutherland-springs-shooting-good-guy-gun

This guy was an idiot and he could have killed numerous people with a stray shot or ricochet.

You ask: "Why US Gov does nothing about Mass Shootings in USA such as Las Vegas". Because the shooters were not Muslims or North Koreans. If they were Muslim or North Koreans, then Trump/Republicans/Democrats and the right-wing Media, aka FAKE News, will be falling over each other calling for multiple Multi Trillion Wars.
As was the case with 9/11. Any other questions.

DisWay,

Unfortunately, we were never told the real truth about 9/11. There was much more going on there that we were never told, or ever probably will be.

People of this country are being spoonfed false information about Muslims and North Koreans every day. This is part of the prewar brainwashing that usually always takes place, usually before a country attacks another country. Our government is trying to condition us for when we start seeing dead bodies on the news.

My only question by now is when will American People realize that these "Trump/Republicans/Democrats and the right-wing Media, aka FAKE News," do not really give a squat about American People? Which is proven from Mass shootings after mass shootings that they do nothing about, to state of Healthcare in USA which is an unfavorable nightmare compared to rest of the developed World whom all have universal socialized Healthcare, to etc. etc.
When?

I hate to be such a cynic, but I have my doubts that the American people will ever wake up and stop electing idiots to office.

As long as brilliant and committed people like Bernie Sanders are passed over for people like Hilary Clinton, a well-known Wall Street player, we're always going to be stuck in the same place. As long as people of this country are afraid to take a gamble and start wising up, we are stuck.

Why aren't American People out on the Street by the 10s of Millions demanding universal socialized Healthcare, what the rest of developed World marched for and Decades ago and got it as a result.

Why aren't American People out on the Street by the 10s of Millions demanding END to Wars after War, as we did during Vietnam War???

Sarah,

There are two reasons for this as I see it; people are too self-absorbed, and they are largely ignorant about what happened in the 60s, especially the antiwar movement.

People nowadays have been hypnotized by social media delivered to them by their smart phones, which they cannot take their hands off for a few minutes. Thanks to our failing education system, many young people don't even know anything about the Vietnam War. They could not find Vietnam on the map if life depended on it.

Speak for yourself. Or speak for the White Trash Trump/Republican supporters. The Liberal/Educated People I know and am, can find just about any Country on the Map, set aside "U.S. on a map". So lets get back to the real issue of this Question which has been further highlighted by the Killings in NYC. That is whereas Republicans and Fox said after Vegas shooting:
"Lets not Politicize this" AND did nothing about that Killing of 59 Americans

in NYC shooting they Politicizing it to War War end.

Since you brought up the killings in New York city, I guess that means you also advocate for the banning of TRUCKS. On same note you must also be for the banning of AIRPLANES because the largest mass killing in America was caused by them.

I won't hold my breath waiting for you to agree, because you won't and can't. Just as an alcoholic seldom recovers until he hits rock bottom, you won't be able to agree until things get so bad that you hit rock bottom.

In the meantime, enjoy the ride down. It does not hurt until you hit bottom.

And no way is Fox a right wing media concern - at best it is centrist, but that is stretching it. Of course, even a centrist is right wing to a leftie.

mmerlinn, you are absolutely brain dead hopeless if you think the Ultra Right-Wing Fox is "at best it is centrist". After all these Mother FAKERS:

1- Oppose Universal Healthcare that Media in all European Nations, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc. 100% support

2- Oppose sensible strict Gun controls that all Conservative parties in European Nations, Canada, Australia, etc. 100% support

3- They support and War after War after War

etc. etc.

Sarah, you said it well. These "Mother Fakers" such as Fox who oppose all that is good, such as sensible ban on Guns and Universal socialized healthcare, are the True ENEMY of American People and not the nothing ISIS. Really sick what is happening in USA :(

The liberal elitist and corrupt corporate left-wing media is in control of the news, while the extremist liberal and progressive politicians do their bidding.
Sometimes you must fight fire with fire. Let the government arm, train, test and NRA certify every head of household and issue them a concealed carry permit.
Soon crime, on every level, will start to decrease.

Thom,

If the liberals would have had control of anything, we would have had gun control years ago. Since when did the liberals ever pander to the whims of the NRA?

I am seriously beginning to think that you are deranged. Speaking in opposites, usually some sign of a serious psychiatric condition. See a shrink, already!

If the liberals would have had control of everything, the whole U.S. would be like Detroit, Chicago, et alia. The liberals have had control in those places for DECADES, NOTHING has improved, and things keep getting worse and worse. Since you are so enamored about how good it is where liberals are in control why don't you do us all a favor and move to South Chicago, like south of Garfield.

Wheeler, you once again prove the left to be derangement central and you are one of its products.
If you really want to stop these crimes, issue the head of every household a handgun and a concealed carry permit, after a complete background check, required NRA safety and marksmanship training.
The householder is then required to always be armed. Massacres, like in Texas, will end overnight. Snipers and bombers will be the only kind of criminal attacks this will not stop.

Thom,

You right-wing pro-gun nuts always have the same answer for every time one of these horrible incidents occurs, which is arm everyone to the teeth.

Many people have said that they refuse to carry firearms, such as teachers after Sandy Hook, when you right wingers all proposed arming teachers. What are you going to do? Force people to carry guns whether they want to or not?

Unleashing the "cowboy mentality "is the last thing we need to solve the problem of gun violence.

Wheeler, you mentally deficient left-wing imbeciles are too limited for rational thought.
The NHS is failing, worldwide, and gun control is merely a way for the left to institute their police state, without opposition. Vote Democrats out of every level of government, break up their criminal organization and bring peace to the U.S.

Thom,

You seem to be of the belief, like most right-wingers, that if you tell the same lie enough times, people will eventually believe it. Your philosophy closely resembles the philosophy of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister.

Just because you say the same thing over and over again, doesn't make it any more valid or true. What you are saying is nothing but lies, and I have a good feeling that you know that already.

Your way of thinking is the textbook definition of insanity.

Do you mean repetition like you dopes do, with nearly every post?

1- Universal Healthcare that Media in all European Nations, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc. 100% support

2- Strict Gun controls that all Conservative parties in European Nations, Canada, Australia, etc. 100% support

3- War after War after War

You keep pushing all the things that the Nazis did and suggest that SOMEONE ELSE resembles Goebbels!!! Wasn't he youth Hitler Youth idol?
