@MattPrince: I'm saying the UK's gun crimes went UP after the firearms ban, not down. Now UK's criminals deal with drugs AND illegal guns, so the criminals still have weapons! And they KNOW the average citizen is defenceless...

A disarmed population at the mercy of armed criminals... nice! Sounds like Canada!

AGit: I'm sure his mother had no worry that her child would kill her. Something must've set him off, maybe in the next few days or weeks we might find out what that was.

CNN was reporting that Adam tried to buy a handgun Tuesday and was refused. So that part of the existing gun laws worked.

The fact remains, that gun free zones are where mass murders go to commit their crimes because they know they won't meet anyone with a firearm that will stop them before they decide they're done.

Most other countries manage perfectly well without them. Guns that is...and maybe even Yanks.

So, how did that gun control work out for these people?



Maybe next time we Yanks will just stay home and let you guys work things out for yourselves.

If these Yanks are so insistent on their right to bear arms, then lock the doors and leave them to it. Most other countries manage perfectly well without them. Guns that is...and maybe even Yanks.

Every 5 year old and up should be able to carry a gun to school so this kind of tragedy would not happen...
I am so glad to have lived in "gun free zones", I wish CJ and 5cats and other boulshhitters the loss of a loved one by "guns who don't kill" .

"More proof that criminals will get guns regardless of more restrictive gun laws."

On the contrary. Either the mother was a criminal and got hold of the guns legally or she was law-abiding and even so, with weapons to defend herself against criminals, was killed by a criminal.

As it turns out, more gun laws wouldn't have stopped Adam Lanza. The guns he used were bought by his mother and he apparently killed her to get to them.

More proof that criminals will get guns regardless of more restrictive gun laws.

"there's all the evidence you need to prove that gun-free zones are nothing but deathtraps."

Basically the rest of the world disagrees. Don't get me wrong, I don't intend to argue, as I know that in no way could I change some of your views (the lame demagoguery and total lack of rational thought that's displayed on the t-shirt picture posted by aj is quite a good example), however the news reaching my end is that the guns used were legally owned by the mother. Is this true? If so, now what happens to the "criminals use illegal weapons and we have to arm ourselves to the teeth with legal weapons to defend ourselves by blowing their brains out" justification that many are eager to wave around as soon as something like this happens?

""@AJ guns don't kill people, people don't kill people, god kills people.""

@AJ guns don't kill people, people don't kill people, god kills people.

@5Cats - no UK is not more violent than USA, the stats are blurred by the definition of violence. Look at the homicide rate (a more comparable statistic) and you'll see its a lot safer on this side of the pond. And for the purpose of clarity ~ I'm not telling you what to do about your blessed gun rights, just pointing out the flaw in your 'facts'.

@OldOllie - I think you need to point that intellectual honesty at yourself. Mass murder of this type usually happens at the point of greivance, the perpetrator often does not intend to survive. Have a look at Mark Essex, Maurice Clemmons, Lamar Moore. GFZ have kids, thus they generate more media attention.

MJ's stats on mass killings from the last 30 years.

Oh give me a break on your god thing AJ. This guy had a history of mental issues. It was not drating god's will for these kids to die. Some drating deranged monster who couldn't cope with life decided to take their lives and there's nothing you, I nor your magical man in the sky could do about it. Stop praying and be proactive!

spermninja: It's in response to people who don't live on this continent calling for us to ban firearms. If they hadn't mentioned it, we wouldn't respond. Simple.

drating hell. Some of you guys have made comment after comment in support of your right to own weapons,but next to nothing on what these families are going through. Your precious rifles and handguns are more important to you then what has happened to these kids?

The thing in the trunk was NOT an "assault rifle" OK?
It LOOKED like the military version, but it was NOT the same!
For Heaven's sake! It's apples and oranges people!

To buy a weapon in Canada? I couldn't do it.
#1 I'm on meds for depression (NO legal guns for me!)
#2 I'd need permission from my past girlfriends... and also from my ex-wife who I haven't spoken to for 15+ years! (3/4 of my ex-gf's would say I'm a nice guy, fyi..)
#3 I'd need a membership in a local shooting range & etc...
These things would cots $1,000+ to get.

However:
To Illegally own a weapon? All I'd need is $500 bucks and a tiny bit of luck.

So what did "laws" do to protect these children who died? NOTHING! ZIP ZILCH NIL NADA!

Still: the liberal left will milk this for all it's worth, at the same time they'll lay the groundwork for the NEXT tragic event.

Sickening.

Now CNN is cutting off the reasonable person, and persuing the "assault rifle" theme.

"It could fire off 100 rounds" WTF?
IT WAS LEFT IN THE TRUNK! It was NOT used in the killings!

Piers Morgan is a world-class ass-hat.
The NRA guy is still managing to make his point, dispite the opposition and lies of the "moderator".

Dan Gross is now harping on the "guns = death" motiff...

Watching the "left wing" make hay on the bodies of children is just plain sickening...

@CrakrJak- same here. I've never felt so deeply saddened by anything like this. 20 kindergarteners. 20 five year olds. 20 families shattered. I can't help but cry.

News says: There was an "assault rifle" in the back of the killer's car.
#1: It's NOT an "assualt rifle" it's a "semi-automatic weapon". One trigger pull = one shot. Assault rifles are full-auto: 1 trigger pull = 20 shots. A distinction the "liberal media" utterly FAILS to comprehend.
#2 He left it IN his car! Shows how dangerous it is... he didn't even bother to take it with him.
#3 Gun Free Zone: Yeah, how well did THAT work?

More laws =\= Safety.

Watching the MSM "spin" yet another tragic event to further their "viewpoint" is just... par for the course.

Actually I take that back:
I'm listening to some non-nice individual crying about how "guns kill people" and preaching the religion of "gun control".
SICKENING!
For Heaven's sake: the gun is a tool, people have been killing since the dawn of time, guns are just another way of doing it.
This moron is going on and on about how "evil guns" kill people, but he's living in "lotusland" if he thinks a new "gun law" will take guns OUT of the hands of CRIMINALS.
Just how STUPID are these people?
He's claiming a relationship between "low gun ownership" and low guncrime... FALSE! In fact the OPPOSITE is true.
It's the "loonie left" who's first to politicise this, and by far the worst offenders.

Conn's 'tough laws' did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to prevent this, keep that in mind. "Gun laws" punish the lawful persons, not the criminals...
