That's hilarious.... NOT. But I'm sure that if it were a game attacking Muslims and their faith, you would be enraged about it.

All we can do about gun violence is thoughts and prayers

I've told my staff time and time again, you don't come to me and just say 'there is a problem'. I expect that you'll come to me, say there is a problem, and offer up a thought out suggestion on fixing the problem.

All I hear from anti-gun side is fluff about more laws, when the ones we have aren't effective, unfortunate case in points recently. Criminals aren't going to give a damn about the laws, since they are criminals. Nutcases will obtain them, legally or not.

So, other than 'amending the 2A', what solution do you realistically offer up to correct the situation?

Why have laws? Criminals break them

That was a well thought out response, Mikeyy.

Yes, criminals will break whatever laws there are. Basic laws explain the when and where for the average joe, so they do serve a purpose. But they are ineffective when someone will choose to become a murderer, and regardless of laws, they will use whatever tool is at hand.

So, again, what do you feel is an acceptable resolution to the issue, while keeping in mind the 2A includes the phrase 'shall not be infringed'?

It seems that whenever their is a problem with someone abusing their rights, the left wants to jump in and deny law abiding citizens those rights while ignoring the actions of the criminals that are actually breaking the laws in place.

I have a solution. Let's ban murder. That seems to be the net affect of the criminals illegally possessing guns. So if we ban murder, it should stop people from doing it. According to liberal logic, that should cure the problem.

Morons, and I am not pointing anybody out, do not understand that any law attempting to prevent something bad, will be ignored by the bad guys. What any bad guy understands is that regardless of the thousands of "preventing" laws, the one law that punishes instead of prevents is the thorn on their side.

Tell me which law below would put a bigger fear in you?

1. No bad guy is allowed to possess any instrument that can cause injury or death. Incarceration will be the punishment.

2. No person will intentionally, or through mental instability, cause death to another person, or he will suffer death.

I played the silly, asinine liberal anti-gun weenie game, and I am ashamed that I turned stupid for a few seconds. The room was spinning.

The phrase "shall not be infringed" is tantamount to the "do not touch" sign ignored by imbeciles the world over.
