    Gun Control was already in effect

    With all the talk of “Gun Law Dialogue” the media has completely missed an important point. Connecticut already has in place all of the provisions being discussed . Purchase permits, involving screening by local, state and federal agencies is already the law. Gun show dealers have to obtain background checks. Pistol purchase permits are required at gun shows. There is already a federal law prohibiting the purchase of handguns out of state. There is already a federal law prohibiting the purchase or ownership of a handgun by anyone under twenty one years of age (shooter was twenty years old). There is already a Federal law and a state law prohibiting firearms on school grounds or in school buildings.

    Everything that the media says they want done, was already done. The laws were in effect in Connecticut at the time of this shooting. Gun Control was already the law of the land in Connecticut.

    All of these laws, already in force, did not stop the death of twenty small children and 6 adults. This incident is not a “cry for change” as the press is bugling over the airways. We should be looking at gun control as having been accomplished and yet did not stop the violence. Ergo, we have something else that is the problem. There seems to have been no long history of mental health problems that could have flagged this killer. A twenty year old is going to be able to over ride any security measures to secure the weapons from his grasp. It is entirely possible that there was nothing that anybody could have done to prevent this tragedy.

    Probably the only person who could have done anything to stop this tragedy was the killer’s mother. But, she is dead, and we can’t ask her.

    I agree but there are so many others out there that want others to do the protecting so if something goes wrong they can say in there newspaper or from behind a podium it is somebody elses fault. As a grandfather of 7 I would be willing to stand my watch so the young would have a future, the sign I want to see at schools malls and churchs is wacko free zone.

    I'm the guy next door that is polite, but does not tell you crap.
    And this fact cannot be stated enough! More gun control over law abiding citizens just makes them easier victims, and makes crime go up!

    Here's an article discussing (and providing examples) of how their laws are tougher than most - Connecticut gun laws among the toughest in the U.S.

    CT gets 3 stars from the Brady Bunch, so how could gun crime occur there?
    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 226 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Because those that wish to disarm American citizens can't use those arguments.
    Sin, the reprobate mind etc can not be legislated.

    Dysfunctional families, children or parents, "the devil made me do it", etc..etc... does not help the powers that be in their cause to ban guns.

    I completely agree with you, there are underlying facts that cause people to do what they do.

    Those who wish America disarmed will use ANY..ANY...ANY excuse or reason to get the guns..and what better direct evidence to advance their cause than to look at the most violent crimes (NOT committed by people), but in their twisted fanatasy world; committed by "The Gun"

    According to the news report I heard, the guns belonged to the mother.
