So many of these shooters "recently recieved mental health treatment". We know that psychoactive medications have caused high incidence of suicides in teenagers. Could they also induce homicidal-suicidal thoughts? Is this insane behavior brought on by medications?

The last paragraph of this article is interesting: characterize the absolutely citizen driven second ammendment movement as "proffessional" while you are on a paid speaking tour. There is nothing citizen-based in the gun control movement. It is led by a group of elites that don't want the U.S. citizenry to represent a viable military force. Give them pot and pharmacutical happy pills, let them watch TV, and they'll all be happy, compliant Vegans.

Thanks David Petronis. Many in this country tend to rush to political trends on the emotion of the moment. I appreciate your solid stance on the gun show.

Disarmed does not equal safer.

If I provide some arguments, will you tell me why they are irrational, or change your slogan?
1) Please read the 2003 Center for Disease Control study which examined gun control strategies. In its summary are these words: "The Task Force found insufficient evidence to determine the effectiveness of any of the firearms laws or combinations of laws reviewed on violent outcomes." This is not the NRA that you can dismiss as predjudiced liars.
2) More people are killed by hands and feed than with assault rifles. Please fact check and get back to us.
3) This whole argument is being played on emotions of needing to protect our children. All firearms, let alone assault rifles, don't make the top of the list of causes of childhood death. You could be looking into those and acting on the findings.
4) Alcohol kills far more people than firearms, and you allow alcoholic beverage advertising to be blasted at children constantly.
5)The M1 rifle provided the capability of an assault rifle since the government gave them out at the end of WWII. This has not changed. The perpetrators are new. Are investigative journalists looking into what causes this new type of killer? Perhaps what medications that they were on?

I respect pacifists, if they admit that it is only good people that are willing to fight that allow them to survive in their little utopian bubble.

Mr. Whitney: the real problem is that elections can be bought. Elections can be bought because John and Jane Q. Public vote for whoever blasts the best simplistic slogans at them on television.

Labeling John McCain as "4 more years of George Bush", and repetetive TV adds for Hope and Change got us the current mess in Washington.

Whoever gave him alcohol may as well have put a gun to his head. This story is repeated too often: we lose more college students to alcohol and drugs than we lose soldiers in battle. It is time for authorities to wake up.

I hope that at least, all students over 21 at this party were expelled.
