Swimming pools are death traps for children.
"In a given year, there is one drowning of a child for every 11,000 residential pools in the United States. Meanwhile, there is 1 child killed by a gun for every 1 million-plus guns. The likelihood of death by pool (1 in 11,000) versus death by gun (1 in 1 million-plus) isn’t even close: Molly is roughly 100 times more likely to die in a swimming accident at Imani’s house than in gunplay at Amy’s."
You know, you might have a point if these terrible guns were floating around in the air all by themselves killing innocent random people, but they're NOT! It is criminally insane or purely evil people that are responsible for this, Not guns! I didn't see you mention how many people were killed by knives, baseball bats, hammers, axes,swords, fists,cars,brass knuckles,etc,etc, either. Must not have fit your agenda!
The 2nd amendment states the right of law abiding people to keep and bear arms shall not be infinged. The 1st amendment protects the right of idiots like you to free speech...without the 2nd amendment the first amerndment would not be possible. So cherish your rights.
The unthinkable crime of executing the baby, that's what they did, executed the baby, was committed by a 17 and a 14 year old. Let me guess. They illegally possessed and used a gun to commit murder. No background check or assault weapon ban would have prevented this. What we need is people control, but that ain't gonna happen. Too cruel and unusual.
Your reasoning leaves out a few steps, m'friend. Imagine we allowed the sale of cherry bombs to just about anyone who wants to buy some. Some teenagers would soon be blowing their fingers off, and blowing up other things as well. So the cherry bomb makers and sellers would say, cherry bombs don't cause maiming and property damage, it's people who do it! Yeah, right. May i suggest that a society that won't allow sensible gun controls shares some responsibility for what irresponsible people do?
why are you, doctor_eavil posting such trash as this.. decent americans take no pleasure in horrible occurances like this.. it is obvious that you are a person who would like America disarmed.. you get on here every time a tragedy like this happens and spout your dislike of guns.. it is tragic and no one on here wants to hear you #$%$.. keep it to yourself...
Hadn't read about the baby, but I when I did read about the Marine, made me think we need to require background checks for military personnel. Oh wait, we already do! Perhaps it would be more effective to confiscate their guns and send them into battle with bows and arrows. No, those are dangerous. Oh, to heck with it all, let's just disband the military, and the police for that matter, pick up all weapons door to door and put our faith in our new Messiah - Barack Hussein Obama.
Horrible things happen in this world and the corporate controlled mainstream media will continue to focus on whatever they think will fuel their agenda. If you want to be their pawn keep swallowing the pablum.
