Looking for America
By GAIL COLLINS

<<big snip>>

This is all about guns — access to guns and the ever-increasing firepower of guns. Over the past few years we’ve seen one shooting after another in which the killer was wielding weapons holding 30, 50, 100 bullets. I’m tired of hearing fellow citizens argue that you need that kind of firepower because it’s a pain to reload when you’re shooting clay pigeons. Or that the founding fathers specifically wanted to make sure Americans retained their right to carry rifles capable of mowing down dozens of people in a couple of minutes.

Recently the Michigan House of Representatives passed and sent to the governor a bill that, among other things, makes it easy for people to carry concealed weapons in schools. After the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School Friday, a spokesman for House Speaker Jase Bolger said that it might have meant “the difference between life and death for many innocent bystanders.” This is a popular theory of civic self-defense that discounts endless evidence that in a sudden crisis, civilians with guns either fail to respond or respond by firing at the wrong target.

It was perhaps the second-most awful remark on one of the worst days in American history, coming up behind Mike Huckabee’s asking that since prayer is banned from public schools, "should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?"

Huckabee is a fascinating character. He comes off as a nice guy, but he can be such a d*ck.

Why can't these editorialists research their subjects so as not to sound like idiots. Maybe she actually heard someone say that? If so, she heard it from an idiot.

Clay pigeon shooters don't make that argument. O/U's, side by sides, hunting pumps, reloading is part of the game.

foolish quotes:"he killer was wielding weapons holding 30, 50, 100 bullets"

I think the biggest magazine is about 19....and that is standard issue for police departments, the FBI and others as it gives you enough firepower to stop CRIMINALS and protect yourself.

100? total exaggeration


A typical bleeding heart lib taking advantage of a crazed killer who killed his own mother, then took legally registered guns, in one of the toughest states in the country to buy and hold a gun. THe guns were legally registered to the mother. He killed his mother then stole the guns

The nutjob who blew up the gov't building in OKLA city also took out the whole nursery/day care area...blew up , what, hundreds? So now we don't let you buy more than 2lb of fertilizer at a time, or a pint of diesel fuel?


The bleeding heart libs give back drivers licenses to drunk drivers all the time. 7th conviction DUI.....and they keep doing it till they take out some family and kids somewhere..... and there are MILLIONS of drunk drivers on the highways ready to mow down your family. Why aren't you stopping the 10,000 drunk driving deaths a year? A lot more kids die that way, year after year? You libs won't even take away, permanently , licenses for second conviction DUI. You should. NO car. No driving. No choice. But no.......you won't. YOu'll go after the guns which kill 1/1000th the number killed by drunk drivers each and every year.

It's really about control. YOu libs want to take away all our freedoms and the first is to make sure we don't fight back against a tyrannical government. or protect ourselves.

Next up, Huck will explain how the slaughter was actually "God's will" and "really, all for the best.".

Bingo. A liberal's answer to a societal problem is always some form of collective punishment.

which he almost certainly believes. Afterall, now all those kids are in heaven. If they had actually gotten to live, many of them would have grown up to not be faithful Jesus fearing Christians and would have grown old, died and gone to hell. Also, tragedies like this cause survivors to start to go to church and and stuff.

Boy, you make Christianity sound like a mental disease.

I think we have a new winner.

My friend Jim Riley posted: "Wasn't the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day? It's a wonder we don't have more 20 year old "dads" doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America. When you forget the TEN COMMANDMENTS, people, THIS is what you get."

I think Collins meant "clay pigeons" as a bit of sarcasm.

He doesn't have to. The Bible makes that clear already.
