    Ron, you are not a California resident, you don't have a say. I don't agree 100% all the time with anyone, I don't even agree 100% with myself sometimes. But Feinstein is very popular in California and I will vote for her if she decides to run again......and so will a majority of California voters. Opinions of "drive by posters" do not count as a vote.

    You would think that parents with guns would be more responsible.

    NRA is considering launching recall campaigns against five California Democratic legislators who voted for gun control. Just like they recalled two Colorado legislators for doing the same thing. You get the whole package. Not just rootin tootin gun totin cowboy legislators but anti choice anti gay anti union anti environment pro big business puppets. So gun control might be one of those negotiable issues, where you go ahead and let the ketsu no ana own all the guns they want and just forget about it but get good Democratic legislators to carry the ball on the other issues. Otherwise its a 100 % loss on issues, rather than a 80 % win. I am sorry its that way. Obviously the recalls will work, they always do. Just give up on gun control. Accept the massacres. Its the democratic (small d) way.

    Do not lose heart Lopeti, there are going to be more and more of these massacres (it's becoming a fad!) and the tide will turn in favor of gun control. Matapule will not be deterred, I'm in the fight for the long haul.

    I just spent a few days with an acquaintance from Florida who is a Gun Nut. He said if we have gun control then only the bad guys will have guns (like that one isn't getting a little tired!). I said that's right and then it will be easier to identify the bad guys and cut off their tea bags. He then decided to change the conversation and talk about how legalization of pot in Colorado and Washington was sure to increase the crime rate.

    Its a little hard to keep track of all the gun violence. A guy near Sacramento shot a cop, he has an assault weapon and is hold up (is that right? or is it holed up? or hole up?). A SD cop got shot day before yesterday but was wearing a bullet proof kevlar vest, always in style, and is going to recover. Shot by a known gang member with long criminal history. Another SD gang banger shot his girlfriend (pregnant girlfriend) in the abdomen, a 2 fer. Another guy was apprehended near Ridgecrest (near Mt. Whitney I believe) with 2 shot victims in the trunk of his car. Shootings also in Texas (wow, what a surprise) and some place else. Like i said its hard to keep track. Just background noise.

    I have contributed money to a Democratic assemblywoman who is close to 100 % with the NRA but other than that is 100 % on my issues. If she lost she'd be replaced by a turd. We can't take a chance on having the legislature come under the control of crazy people like the tea pot nuts. Too much is at stake. I think there will be gun control. Eventually. Seems like "Where Have All The Flowers Gone" could be updated with a verse about gun violence.

    In the last few decades of rampant homicides and mass killings, how many innocent victims were armed and ready for self defense against some madman/men?
    Few, if any.

    Ron, it is only us old tepilos that are supposed to have a bad case of CRS. You are aging prematurely! Yep, what we need is more armed 6 year olds with semi-automatic weapons.

    You remind me of the words in a Country and Western song, "How can I miss you when you won't go away."

    Ron, here is one of those "few if any" recent cases for you. It was reported that there were several guns in the house that were owned by the occupants........but the guns failed to save the lives of the eight occupants. "Prosecutors said Heinze had been smoking crack cocaine Aug. 29, 2009, when he killed his father and the other victims. Each of the victims died from multiple crushing blows to the head from what police believe was a shotgun barrel, though the murder weapon was never found." Maybe their guns can be buried with them. You never know what awaits in the afterlife! Paranoia run amok!

    Would you prefer them dead? If it takes 6ers packing to stay alive, then so be it.

    You can cherry pick from the small amount of cases like this one where maybe nothing could have made a difference, but you know well that these are the exception to the rule and that most people have the time (if able) to protect themselves, and if need be to protect themselves with a firearm. Why do you want to remove that one chance of staying alive from everybody. You can do it to yourself but it's unacceptable to request everybody else do it your way, especially when life is at stake.

    No I do not know that. Educate me.

    and that most people have the time (if able)
    Bingo! "IF ABLE" are the operative words! With semi-automatic weapons or even single shot weapons, no one has an opportunity to react. Firearms are immediate and final.

    I want to remove the one chance of someone being killed by a firearm.

    The archetypical anti-gun nut, with no legit answers.

    You don't want edumacated.

    Most dangers are capable of being neutered, especially if one is armed.

    Few are completely/truly surprised by crazed individuals, they freeze and/or panic, mainly because they don't think of the right things to do, usually because they are unarmed and at the killer's mercy.

    I support your desire, even as impossible as it may be. Meanwhile, don't make more innocents dead by insisting on taking away protection.

    Support life and the protection of it!

    US Child Gun Deaths Rose 60% in 10 Years

    This is a shocking statistic! I guess all those dead children should have been packing heat. Only a depraved gun nut would make such a claim.

    Or maybe the slain kids IF they had such a voice, and maybe their loved ones would have also preferred an option to them merely being another unarmed victim.
    Life is better than the alternative and everybody should have the choice/chance to protect themselves, no matter what some others would like to impose.

    Police in Terrell, a town 30 miles east of Dallas, said a shooting rampage over several hours left at least five people dead.

    YEEHAW!!!!!!!! Texas obviously does not have enough guns to prevent this type of tragedy. You think more guns is going to prevent this? Gun nuts!

    Absolutely! They do this because they know few are willing and able to stop them.

    Six people were shot to death inside a South Carolina home on Tuesday night, CNN reported.


    South Carolina like Texas has a very high rate of personal gun ownership. But according to the gun nuts the ownership rate should be even higher to prevent the tragedies reported above. What is puzzling is that states that have low rates of personal gun ownership do not experience this type of violence on this scale. Hmmmmmmm!

    Sure makes you glad the NRA has stood up for absolute Second Amendment rights and that our brave heroic congress has abetted them. Yet...the damn guns are out there, even with background checks, the best in the world, a nut case who is determined to get an assault weapon, will. And I really don't see any way to get those guns out of the population. Open to suggestions, of course. Sending armed federal agents about to search & confiscate would be exactly what the gun nuts have feared and predicted for years; it might be a self fulfilling prophecy some day, and it would make Ruby Ridge & Waco look like tea parties.
