    Well there is a definite trigger there for the youth to enact such a heinous crime. As sad as it is too see our youth doing something like that... I have seen personally the affects of Bullying.

    Would this kid have tried what he did if he knew teachers had fire arms? That was what I was trying to say when I was mentioning the police officer didnt work. Even if the officer was there, the kid knew how to get into the school with a gun. I am all for Guns in Schools (just not the kids or any dirt bag bringing them).

    What ever the motif, the individual made a decission to use a gun (tool). How would this story look if he used a knife or base ball bat or anything else for that matter. Did he have an outlet with the school to address this issue (going to a teacher/administrator/his parents)? I am guessing he did. Why did he choose this route? A) Because he Could, B)I dont think we will know.

    None of the Current or Proposed Firearms Laws/Restrictions would/could have stoped this. Yet Fienstien comments at the end of the article saying this is why we need stricter laws/restrictions.....Please. This is why I am getting more frustrated with Fienstien, lets us it for personal gain, shame on her.

    We need a First Time Gun Owners Program. Like the First Time Home Owners Program a couple of years ago. Take a Class, get educated, shoot a gun, buy a gun, and we will give you a tax credit equal to the cost. Hows that for a socialist society? Everyone owns a gun? Paid for by the government. Maybe they will go for it??? (I know I am ranting still, but trying for the opposite of taking all our guns, arm our people!)

    Okay, my misunderstanding... He may have taken a firearm or he may have not. Did he know the officer wasn't on duty?? That would answer that question...

    Quite honestly.. It probably would have never reach the national air waives... It would have just been another kid "over reacting" to a bullying situation. I believe he did have outlets, but as I personally know, if the bully is a Football Player or Track Team member... They are usually smacked on the wrist and told to find another kid to pick on... Was this the case? Was the bully corrected and just took out his frustration on the same student again? I was bullied... A LOT as a child and know how the "system" works.. It doesn't... A total new approach needs to be taken to Bullying. Potentially would stop kids from growing up and being angry individuals who eventually spill over the top and do some crazy bat shit things..

    It is all fluff for the Sheep and people who don't want to think that it couldn't have stopped this.. It is just like Piers Morgan's disgusting stance.. Standing on the graves of dead children.. "Never let a good tragedy go to waste"

    Yeah don't hold your breath :lol:

    113th CONGRESS

    1st Session

    H. R. 141
    To require criminal background checks on all firearms transactions occurring at gun shows.


    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

    January 3, 2013
    Mrs. MCCARTHY of New York introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    A BILL
    To require criminal background checks on all firearms transactions occurring at gun shows.


    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

    SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the `Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2013'.

    SEC. 2. GUN SHOW BACKGROUND CHECK.

    (a) Findings- The Congress finds that--

    (1) approximately 5,200 traditional gun shows are held annually across the United States, attracting thousands of attendees per show and hundreds of Federal firearms licensees and unlicensed firearms sellers; and

    (2) gun shows at which firearms are exhibited or offered for sale or exchange provide a convenient and centralized commercial location where criminals and other prohibited persons obtain firearms without background checks and without records that enable firearm tracing.

    (b) Definitions- Section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

    `(36) Gun Show- The term `gun show'--

    `(A) means any event at which 50 or more firearms are offered or exhibited for sale, exchange, or transfer, if 1 or more of the firearms has been shipped or transported in, or otherwise affects, interstate or foreign commerce;

    `(B) does not include an offer or exhibit of firearms for sale, exchange, or transfer by an individual from the personal collection of that individual, at the private residence of that individual, if the individual is not required to be licensed under section 923; and

    `(C) does not include an offer or exhibit of firearms for sale, exchange, or transfer at events--

    `(i) where not more than 100 firearms are offered or exhibited for sale, exchange or transfer;

    `(ii) that are conducted by private, not-for-profit organizations whose primary purpose is owning and maintaining real property for the purpose of hunting activities; and

    `(iii) that are attended only by permanent or annual dues-paying members of the organizations, and the members of the immediate families of the dues-paying members.

    `(37) Gun Show Vendor- The term `gun show vendor' means a person who is not licensed under section 923 and who exhibits, sells, offers for sale, transfers, or exchanges a firearm at a gun show, regardless of whether or not the person arranges with the gun show operator for a fixed location from which to exhibit, sell, offer for sale, transfer, or exchange the firearm.'.

    (c) Regulation of Firearms Transfers at Gun Shows-

    (1) IN GENERAL- Chapter 44 of such title is amended by adding at the end the following:

    `Sec. 932. Regulation of firearms transfers at gun shows

    `(1) the person has attained 21 years of age;

    `(2) the person (and, if the person is a corporation, partnership, or association, each individual possessing, directly or indirectly, the power to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of the corporation, partnership, or association) is not prohibited by subsection (g) or (n) of section 922 from transporting, shipping, or receiving firearms or ammunition in interstate or foreign commerce;

    `(3) the person has not willfully violated any provision of this chapter or regulation issued under this chapter;

    `(b) Responsibilities of Gun Show Operators-

    `(1) IN GENERAL- It shall be unlawful for a person to operate a gun show, unless the person--

    `(A) not later than 30 days before the commencement of the gun show, notifies the Attorney General, in writing, of the date, time, duration, and location of the gun show, and the identity of each person who will be a gun show vendor at the gun show;

    That crackpot put that in after the Aurora movie shooting. Hoping it gets shot down again this year. NOBODY likes McCarthy here in LI NY who is a responsible firearm owner.

    She got elected when her husband was murdered on a LI Rail Road train by a maniac. Horrible tragedy but could have been limited. 2 conductors on the train had a license to carry concealed but because the train was coming from NYC which forbids CCW they chose to follow the law and did not carry.

    Word is she's also a drunk.

    Yep, but since NYC is a freaking communist country of its own they couldn't do anything about it. This is a perfect example of how things can go differently if we are allowed our guns...

    Thanks for that nice offer. We also have a Walmart thread over here:

    and here:

    Here’s a rundown of what some of those Democrats from rural areas and are up for reelection on 2 years have to say:
    Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that he’s not eager to pass new gun control legislation.
    “I think they’ve got a long haul here … There are some of us who just fundamentally believe in a Second Amendment right,” he said. “To be frank, I feel like it’s going to be hard for any of these pieces of legislation to pass at this point.”
    Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) told a local television station that he opposed the proposals.
    "While I appreciate the president's efforts to keep Americans safe, I believe the place to start is to enforce the laws on the books. That being said, I will continue to look for areas of common ground, including funding for law enforcement in schools, implementing tracking systems for the mentally ill and criminals, and addressing violence in the media. Most importantly, I will be talking with my constituents in Arkansas as I vote on these issues in the future," Pryor said.
    Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) indicated he was hesitant about supporting new legislation.
    “Enforcing the laws we already have on the books is good first step, and it's clear more needs to be done to address access to mental health care,” he said in a Wednesday statement. “Before passing new laws, we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible, law-abiding gun owners in Montana instead of a one-size-fits all directives from Washington."
    Sen. Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) said on Tuesday, before the proposals came out, that he didn’t want to see a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
    “We in South Dakota have far fewer problems with guns than they do in New York or New Jersey, and it makes common sense to not have one size fits all,” he said in a Tuesday news conference in South Dakota. "I believe in the Second Amendment, and I'm a hunter myself, but I think something should be done — but what, I don't know.”
    Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) was cautious regarding whether or not she supported the proposals, though she said she would look at the proposals with “an open mind.”
    “We need to ensure that there are laws in place to prevent a tragedy like Sandy Hook from ever happening again. First and foremost, that will require a serious commonsense debate in Congress that looks at access to guns, access to mental health care and violent video games,” she said in a statement to The Hill. “While respecting the rights of responsible gun owners, I am committed to working with my Republican and Democratic colleagues toward a comprehensive approach that ensures our communities are safe.
    “As I have said, I will look at any proposal with an open mind, including the President’s proposals to make schools safer and grant law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crime,” she continued.
    Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) similarly didn’t take a concrete stance on Obama’s proposals, though she sounded slightly more open to new legislation.
    “My record of support for the Second Amendment is strong. In Louisiana and many places across the country, hunting, target shooting and gun collecting are time-honored sports and popular hobbies,” she said in a statement to reporters after Obama rolled out his proposals.
    “That said, last month's tragedy in Newtown, Conn., has become all too familiar. We must find a way to balance our Second Amendment rights with the challenges of mental illness, criminal behavior and the safety of our schools and communities. We must also enforce the rules already on the books. Even some of the most respected law enforcement leaders in our country are calling for commonsense reforms because of this terrible violence in our communities.”
    “This isn’t a Republican or a Democratic issue,” she continued. “It’s an American issue. And the American people expect us to come together and act. The safety of our children, our communities and our nation depend on it. I look forward to reviewing the proposals put forth by the administration and will give them my serious consideration as they are brought for debate in the Senate.”
    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who hails from a left-leaning but heavily rural state, said during a meeting in Minnesota that he supported some of the measures but didn’t immediately weigh in on Obama’s calls for an assault weapons ban. Franken staffers later pointed out that he’s long supported renewing the assault weapons ban.
    “I think most people agree that you don't need 30 rounds to bring down a deer," Franken said about Obama’s proposal to limit the size of ammunition magazines.

    If you look at the amount of armed secutity liberal (and other) politicians, athletes, celebs, etc have to protect their own families, their problem isn't the gun, it's who has them and what they can have. They don't want to give theirs up, they just weant those of us with opposing ideas to give up ours.

    According to Feinstein’s bill summary, the legislation requires owners of semi-automatic rifles – deemed as assault weapons – to register their gun with the Federal Government under the National Firearms Act.

    The National Firearms Act, first enacted in 1934, was passed to choke the sale and transfer of automatic weapons.

    It looks like Feinstein will unveil the monster she wants to create tomorrow. We have had glimpses and it is hideous. I have no doubt much if not all will fail. Below is one I hadn't heard about...imposing federal $200 registration fees for "assault weapons".

    Under the current NFA, owners of automatic weapons are allowed to keep their weapons but requires an owner to submit photographs and fingerprints to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).

    A $200 tax on an NFA firearm is imposed each time a NFA weapon is registered or transferred to a different address. Presumably, each weapon registered as an NFA firearm would be subject to the same restrictions.

    But Feinstein’s bill goes even further, which would ban the transfer of “assault weapons.” According to the NRA-ILA, that means current owners of the banned weapons would only allow them keep them until they die. Instead of the gun passing down to an heir, the NRA-ILA warns, it would be forfeited to the government.
