Chris Zealot is an anti-gun zealot who mongers hate against law abiding NRA members in a despicable fashion. He uses dead kids to push his long time hobby horse while ignoring the real source of school shootings, mental health problems. Columbine occured DURING the assault weapon ban/brady bill era. The FBI said it impact on gun crimes was nill. Murders have fallen every year since the Brady Bill expired.What these left wing politicians are doing, inciting anger and hate against law abiding gun owners whove done nothing wrong, is disgusting , unamerican and cowardly.

See the anger from start to finish I'm Madison Mpm's comment . Why do these gun advocates display such anger. It was the shooters Mom that could have prevented the tragedy if the guns were locked up - she wasn't a hunter - why the guns - why the anger?

I don't detect any anger, but I wouldn't blame Madison Mom if she were angry. Sen. Murphy and his cohorts are imposing severe penalties on gun owners due to an event for which we bear no responsibility. You ask, "why the guns?" Why not? Gun ownership is expressly protected by the US Constitution. Would you also have the temerity to ask why someone went to church?

I think one reason gun sales soared after the Newtown tragedy is that people knew what Obama and the lefties would propose. The second ammendment allows citizens to protect themselves not only from criminals but from the government. The way this administration has been pushing an agenda eroding personal freedoms it's no wonder people feel the need to arm themselves. Obama isn't sure he likes the idea of armed guards in schools, yet he has no problem that the Sidwell Friends School that his daughters attend have armed guards as well as the Secret Service.
