Kurt Hofmann: St. Louis paper suggests dropping 1 infringement of gun rights, pursuing another

The old "Assault Weapons" Ban Song again.
What opponents of gun rights need to address now is the issue of assault weapons, as well as the almost unlimited trade in weapons. The Federal Assault Weapons Ban, which was enacted in 1994, included a prohibition on manufacturing assault weapons for civilian use.
The 10-year ban expired on Sept. 13, 2004, and repeated attempts to renew it have failed. While the nation must accept that the courts have upheld an individual’s right to carry a concealed weapon, citizens do not have to accept assault rifles or the unlimited right to buy and own as many guns as possible.
President Barack Obama has called for the assault weapons ban to be reintroduced. People on both sides of the gun issue should support that position. There are enough of them in existence that no more are needed.

Some wacko just went nuts in an elementary school in Connecticut. Expect that to be showcased in the newest legislation.

Please, oh Libtard, define for me, precisely, exactly and legally, an "assault weapon". Is it this kitchen knife? A baseball bat? This automobile? The pistol, shotgun, semi-action or bolt action hunting rifle?

Remove any one, or even two of these items, and I will kill you just as dead with any of the remainder.

Fucktards, every one.

I am listening to the Connecticut school shooting.
If this administration was (is) willing to kill American LEOs and hundreds of Mexicans to overturn the Second Amendment, would they not be willing to set up any number of Oregon Mall and Connecticut Kindergarten shootings?

I am afraid their actions indicate that the answer is yes.

Watch as the blood dancers come out from under the rock they've been hiding.

Get ready. Here it comes!

The attack on gun ownership is going to come like a Tsunami with this latest massacre in the Connecticut school. Seems damn strange that just when the left needs a cause to rally around, they get it. This shooting is beyond words in it's brutality and I expect weeks of photos, interviews and live footage at funerals. I already saw one female "reporter" trying to pry a 3rd grader into talking about the kids crying out for their mommies. There is a big fight coming and it's all about our rights. Oh, and the deck is stacked!

Still unsure of what an 'assault weapon" is. I own the semi-auto civilian versions of the M14 and the chicom knock off of the Soviet SKS, but I have yet to see an "assault weapon"

And there are enough nuclear warheads, and enough F-16's, and enough missile laden drones flying the skies, but that is government sanctioned violence, so it is okay? Nothing will drive the sales of "assault weapons" more than a ban, and there are only cosmetic differences between a Armalite 7.62 NATO, and an old Winchester Model 100 semi-auto in .308.

The ban" wasn't renewed because it didn't work ! Not even the "antis" could gerrymander the data to justify its non-performance !

Sadly, today's events in CT already has "anti's" from the Oval Office down dancing in the gore. But is this the "worst" mass killing of school children ? I seem to recall a dynamiting of a school. >Jeff

Ya know....think about it. The problem isn't guns/knives or weapons. It's men. Women rarely go on these killing sprees. Testicles are the problem. We need to ban testosterone or testicles or men in general.

That'll solve the problem. For good. Eventually.

How do you stop, control or prevent things like this from happening by taking the Freedom of others?

You can't. But that feeling of helplessness, of wanting/needing to do something to prevent future occurrences is human nature....just as some psychologist was saying....she went on to say the loss of control and power over our lives in these instances is what people want back. I found it ironic that she said that since the push for gun control is exactly that....a push for increased power and control over others. Perhaps that's why the thought of passing such laws is so intoxicating/addictive to the hive mindset.

ust watched the President's speech....

Sorry, I don't buy the "choking back the tears" BS. He's planning on dancing in the blood of the victims to push for the gun control he's always supported.....that much was evident from his comments.

As if Fast and Furious wasn't enough of a push to get gun control implemented.

A 20 year old with two pistols at a school killing students and staff after killing someone off-site. How many state and Federal laws does that violate? Did the enactment of those laws stop this individual? NO!

Time for people to get a clue that laws do not directly stop much, but provide a reason to arrest, charge, jail, try, convict and fine and/or incarcerate an individual after he breaks those laws. Except that, many if not most of these mass murderers kill themselves, leaving survivors demanding that something be done to prevent it happening again.

It is well past time that we do something to prevent this. The only way to prevent this or to at least reduce the death totals is to insist that all responsible adults be armed, trained and prepared to stop anyone attempting to do this in addition to basic firefighting, First Aid and CPR training. We must all be "First Responders". The ability and duty to respond appropriately is the core of the meaning of the word "responsibility". Attainment of the skills and tools is essential.

When kindergarteners learn that teachers Miss Smith and Mrs. Jones as well as Mommy and Daddy responsibly carrying a weapon means that they will all be safer, then they will all truly be safer. Smoke detectors, sprinklers, fire extinguishers, fire blankets, first aid kits, fire delay doors, marked fire exits, fire alarm boxes, evacuation plans and drills do not make a building unsafe, but do make a building safer if an emergency such as a fire does occur.

Time to enact Nuremberg Rules for war-crime complicit journalists. I am absolutely sick of these so called reporters perverting our nation like this.

Well here goes. They have waited too long this time! The women of this country have been buying guns like never before in history for protection of not only themselves but their children and families. I do honestly believe that they will NEVER turn over their guns to some govt. "thug" in any uniform for ANY reason they will say to try to bullshit them. And furthermore, will ANY man ever watch a thug harm or kill your women or ANY women because she refuses to hand over her gun? What will they do when she refuses? Kill her?? I don't think so. But if they are stupid and arrogant enough to try then THAT will be the start of what we all fear is coming. I don't think they will even START to try to disarm the women or us. They have LOST the battle for gun control and disarming this huge WELL_ARMED country. It is TOO LATE for them! How do you disarm the women when they say NO!

The Bath School disaster is the name given to three bombings in Bath Township, Michigan, on May 18, 1927, which killed 38 elementary school children, two teachers, four other adults and the bomber himself; at least 58 people were injured. Most of the victims were children in the second to sixth grades (7–11 years of age [1]) attending the Bath Consolidated School. Their deaths constitute the deadliest mass murder in a school in U.S. history and the third-deadliest non-military massacre in U.S. history, behind 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing.

The bomber was school board treasurer Andrew Kehoe, 55 who died in a car bomb he set off after he drove up to the school as the crowd gathered to rescue survivors from the burning school.

They don't care about these kids, or the killer. They see this as an opertunity to advance their agenda.
Israel faced terrorist going to schools and killing everyone.
They trained and armed the teachers to protect the children, and the school shootings stopped.

As for any, and yes I mean ANY NEW GUN LAWS, I will won comply, and will see that as an attack on the Constitution and Bill of Right. I swore an Oath to Protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC.
We need to target the political thugs behind this, and the stooges just following orders.

snMichigan had a school massacre back in the 50's where something like 50 kids were killed. Look it up.
