    hey....if you're in CT too, why not move to the Third World of Texas with them? That way you can have all the clips, and guns and rifles, and whatever else you want and not have to worry about it.

    Yes pass it. This way the only ones they can point a finger at the next time it happens are themselves.

    Most of the gun violence and killing sprees have happened on Obama's watch and this tragedy is the fault of Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. They have destroyed the economy especially for middle class families and this has created millions out of work, bankruptcy, extreme hardship, despair and desperation about their lives and the future of the country. There are so many people and families that are hurting because of Obama's draconian economic policies that some are at the breaking point of hopelessness and futility. This despair is pushing some people over the edge to commit these horrific killings. Also, the killers from Fort Hood, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Colorado Theatre and New Town were either registered as Democrats or voted for liberal Democrats.

    The numbers show that states with the strictest gun laws experience the least gun violence, and those states with the fewest gun laws experience the most gun violence.

    @ JJ

    Lanza, Holmes, et. al., committed crimes because of Obama and they were registered Dems or voted for liberal Dems?

    You can't be serious.

    Chicago has strict gun laws, but they are illegally brought in from Indiana which has no rules.

    Chicago is not a state. And Illinois has neither the strictest, nor the least restrictive gun laws. BTW, that strict Chicago gun law that the right wing loves to sing about, the one that banned carrying concealed handguns withing Cook County, was repeaed a few years ago. Handgun violence has since soared.
