Unfortunately unarmed adults who were powerless in a theater, mall and schools already do have blood on their hands – literally not figuratively. Some have woken up and realized they can be as powerful in stopping bad guys as those who mean to bring harm to others. Unfortunately there are wimps who badly lack confidence in the good in others and themselves so they want to prevent anyone from being able to act. They prefer to be acted upon.
You can step aside and I’ll act for you but don’t take my rights away to protect others.

The first citizen who kills someone trying to disarm them will be a folk legend.
The police in CA should be strongly protesting this within their state, refusing to comply if ordered to confiscate.

Someone please put him out of our misery.

That guy has more foundation on his face than I have under my house.
Destroying guns reminds me of book burning. It’s a sad sight to watch.

In some scenarios, a shotgun might be preferred. But who says we will only need protection in those scenarios? What if we leave home or go hiking or camping? Try a shotgun against some wild animals and they’ll kill you.
Also, due to barrel length laws, Shotguns are not the “scatter guns” that many think they are at close range. A shotgun doesn’t spread much at all in the average sized room where a home invasion could occur, you’d have to saw the barrel shorter for that which our government already made illegal.
Regardless, We don’t need political celebrities lecturing us on what to use for defense. The laws they swore to uphold say it’s none of their business.

The public needs to consequence these political celebrities who continually target our rights.

And the agendas come rolling in… Thanks Nanny B! What would we do without you?

The first suspect was killed, the second is unable to speak in the hospital.
There is no possible way this statement can be accurately made at this point.
The mayors job is to squeeze the toothpaste tube. Once it's out, it isn't going back.

Is she still alive? Her relevance stopped when Americans reminded Washington that we value freedom more than public safety. Her legacy will be: “Bitter politician clinging to her agenda and exploiting victims for political gain.”

Welcome to the Salem Witch Trials of this century. Politicians destroying decades of work to move past the stigmas of mental illness. They are creating a tier of 2nd class citizens and they have full control over who is worthy of constitutional rights. This opens the door to losing other rights.
Say the wrong thing to a therapist, take a medication they deem risky, be willing to admit you’re having struggles and do all of the right things to become healthy? This could mark you.
People WILL avoid important treatment, leading to emotional instability in more people, not less. This is the exact OPPOSITE of what we should be doing.
JUNCTION....Why do you think the bible advises us to get the hell out of this freaking system, Huh?
You just explained it very lucidly.
Yep ...Your point is well taken...The modern Dem Progressive communist if you notice always uses a wedge ...In this case it has been the growing talk of mental illness. Notice how now Gun control is attached to mental illness...Well if that were the case nobody with Government interpreted "Mental Illness" should have a drivers licences...They could kill at any time driving...I agree with Ted, who is going to trust a Government Desk Squatter in Washington ?...Then what..... they get all the government control they want and in five years after the next mass shooting by a kook, we find out that the Washington Desk Squatter was out on a million dollar group get away dancing with a hired smoking clown and makeing Star Trek videos and the mental illness kook slipped through the cracks and no one had a gun to stop him...Please enough nonsense Government...

CNN’s So-called Journalists should be bent over in an Indian tour bus. Poor rapists.
