Up for Debate: Moving forward after Newtown

Monday, December 17, 2012 at 1:31am

How should the nation move forward after the Newtown killings? How should the nation's laws regarding firearms be affected? What do you hope comes out of such a tragic loss of lives?

Nemo - Sorry, just get so disgusting.

Maybe last night our President admitted that mass shootings are his fault.
"I have been to 4 of these memorials since I have been in office"
That is one a year. Did we have 8 mass shootings in the 8 years of President Bush?
Did we have 8 mass shootings in the 8 years of President Clinton?
Did we have 4 mass shootings during the 4 years of Pres. Bush?
Did we have 8 mass shootings during the 8 years of President Reagan?
Maybe President Obama has succeded in his class warfare, divided the country and he is responsible for the shooting massacres!

By: bfra on 12/17/12 at 12:29

p3 - When are you supposed to finish the 4th grade?

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 12:31

What the hell do you call 9/11? What do you call the wars during Bush's time in office?

p3 are you the new replacement for stupid?

By: yogiman on 12/17/12 at 12:31

Loner,

With the government we have now, and many before, you could bet your posterior if we didn't have the 2nd Amendment in our constitution we wouldn't have guns today. That is one things that's keeping them under control.

But then consider: If they can decide anyone born in the US is a natural born citizen even though he is legally a British subject, couldn't they decide they could re-decide that 2nd Amendment section of our Constitution?

By: parnell3rd on 12/17/12 at 12:32

Once again libtards won't argue the facts. The fact is we live in a world with evil people.
Libtards also change the topic when the facts are against them!

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 12:33

Never worry bfra, we have p3. LOL

By: bfra on 12/17/12 at 12:34

Nemo - Those don't count to the repubs, that was Bush/Chaney's doings.

I'll be with you as soon as an unborn fetus can crawl on to a school bus..... but until then, an unborn fetus is just that.... unborn.

Parnell..the Empire state is huge...I live on the Niagara Frontier...West of the Finger Lakes region...it's just 40 miles, across Lake Ontario, to Canadian shores. I live about 350 miles from Bloombergia....the nanny city-state.

Take your complaints to Mayor Bloomberg, not the Lone One.

You right wing religious nut case....

By: bfra on 12/17/12 at 12:36

p3 calls what he posts "facts"? Never count on a troll to even know what "facts" are.

By: parnell3rd on 12/17/12 at 12:37

so now 9/11 was bush's fault? Did you call for a ban on boxcutters? did you call for a ban on jet planes?
is it not true that Pres. Clinton passed on killing bin laden? Your the stupid one!

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 12:39

The mini troll is a good example of the fringe right not taking responsibility for their lack of judgment. There is a problem, not to worry. Blame someone else.

It is not our fault that we made it easy for mentally ill people to get dangerous weapons.

It is not our fault that we took money away from people that need mental help.

Is mini troll must be sucking on Limbaugh’s tips, to be posting this trash.

By: parnell3rd on 12/17/12 at 12:39

brrrk is it true that life begins at conception?
I find it amazing that people who are for abortion is alive!
bfra your ignorant too. when you don't like the facts you look for other ways to attack people!

By: brrrrk on 12/17/12 at 12:39

Hey p3, you do know that Leviticus says that eating shellfish is a abomination?.... so when are you going to start protesting Red Lobster?

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 12:44

p3 would never recognize if it bit on the nose.

I did not say that Bush did, but you post suggest that Obama is behind this mass shooting.

You’re such a drooling mental dwarf.

By: brrrrk on 12/17/12 at 12:44

And even the Catholic Church, that anti-abortion bastion, has a long tradition of not recognizing a fetus as a living being until the "quickening".

I can see this little troll slobbering has he wild through out silly post. I can see that this is p3’s only means of being on the losing side of the election. It spits and sequel and then goes back under its bridge.

Fun is over people, the whiner has gone to ground.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 12:50

brrrk, I think p3 was born brain dead

Total disgust to you, bfra, but it could be total ignorance for you, also. Let's see what happens.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 12:55

The funny mini troll is another good example for metal health care modification in this country. Let’s hope that it is not on its way to Rivergate, on a shooting spree.

By: yogiman on 12/17/12 at 12:57

Well, kids,

If I ever run into a situation where you could use a little help, I'll keep your thoughts in mind. Why should I risk my life for someone like you?

Cap'n.... under the circumstances, that might be stepping over the line juuuuust a bit.

People who shoot up schools don't care about gun laws gd. It's only the sane law-abiding people who are affected by them.

Ben, what's to say a whacko nut case can't get a job in the school cafeteria and poison a bunch of people.

Guns are not the problem. Mental illness with no way to confine the mentally ill any longer since the gov'ment gave them "rights" to roam our city streets uncontrolled and since the Libs want all 6 to 10 year olds who are hyper to be given mood-modifying drugs for ADD to CONTROL THEM IN CLASS, and since parents have no authority or control without the state, we have lots of problems to look forward to.

Think about it. Autism. How many other people with autism have committed mass murder? Here we go, another excuse. Obama didn't want to say during the debates that EVIL even existed. This guy was EVIL who committed this heinous act. He was evil in the rawest and purest form.

Assault weapons are the rapid firing ones where the trigger is held down. Question: Is it an assault if you have to repeated pull the trigger? Just asking for a definition - an intelligent definition.

Is a 9 shot rifle a semiautomatic if the trigger does not lock down? But It has to be pulled first before the gun will fire? I am for the freedom to own guns and the freedom to have carry permits. But I personally never want to have to shoot another person -- unless that person is trying to harm me or my family. Then everyone should have the right to self-protection.

It's a shame that the principal didn't have a gun. She is a hero. So are some of the teachers. And the children are heros for keeping their cool and not going into panic mode.

By: yogiman on 12/17/12 at 1:05

p3,

As a fellow 'troll', do you envy the intelligence these [whatever they are] think they have?
I don't. I call their intelligence ignorance.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 1:06

Not really brrrk. That was not intended to be a joke, but a warning. It is people like p3 that would go out shooting people. p3’s mental abilities are impaired and their emotions are running unchecked. Lets just hope that p3 keeps shooting on line.

How do you know what Limbaugh's tips are? Looks like you listen to him to me. Are you jealous because you can't follow his tips?

brrrrk - Great reply! To bad too many people are in this World with the troll's attitude.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 1:11

brrrk, is quoting from the Book of Idiots. LOL

By: yogiman on 12/17/12 at 1:16

The difference, brrrrk, is if I was [on the scene] in that school, I would have stopped that young man unless he killed me before I could hit him, and I'm a pretty good shot.

My gun is like my seat belt; I never leave home without it. But please don't tell me who you are if you ever need my help

By: Captain Nemo on 12/17/12 at 1:17

Another great thought from the troll monkey. Can you picture teachers with assault rifles and side arms? This has to go with her statement of raising children like you would a dog.

I, I, I, I, I, I, has posted!

Tell me, dumba$$,

You say you live in Antioch. There used to me a mental health center on Murfreesboro Road near Antioch several years ago. Is that where you was born?

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Infringed? The fringe, the lunatic fringe, have infringed on the rights of others...I'm talking about the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The fringe is unhinged....can't we come to a reasonable compromise?

Enough already about the rights of the fringe.

By: gdiafante on 12/17/12 at 1:22

Just ignore the idiocy from that no good, SOB'ing troll.

Parnell is a freaking nut...thank god he's a dying breed...
