One of my original co-bloggers JJV left the following as a comment to my latest post. It deserves a wider audience but I ask that you respect JJV's desire to be known only by his initials rather than his real name, which is known to most of the likely readership. Based on what was written I'd want to post it anonymously too, although frankly it's not much more than a cut-and-paste of anything you'd find on the right side of the blogosphere.
Here we go:
Legislate in Haste, repent at leisure. Except for Fort Hood every major
massacre in this country happened in a gun free zone. This woman had
permits and registered her weapons. What are we going to do when a
soldiers son does this or a cops? These were stolen from their rightful
owner. Sweden is one of the most regulated places on earth and look
what happened there. Other than Chicago and New York City-Connecticut
is a gun grabbers paradise.
Semi automatic weapons are always
going to be with us. Machine guns have been effectivly banned since
1934. Those who have them are registered and monitored by the federal
government. One bullet, one trigger pull. Only the size of the
magazine makes a difference because a lot of these guys were stopped
when they had to reload. Everything else is just feel good stuff for
liberals who don't like other people having rights they don't use or appreciate.
