Yep, never let a crisis go to waste.

Didn't take long for the gun control idiots to pounce did it? What does she possibly think it can accomplish?


One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday.

  • Because gun control needs to be addressed. Of course a tragedy like this is going to open the door for this discussion.

  • Good for her. I will help.I already contribute to the Brady Center to prevent Gun Violence....remember him? James Brady? He was shot in 1981 when Ronnie Reagan was shot and is severly handicapped now. His wife and others organized the gun control organization.
    People in other civilized countries don't understand why Americans love their guns so much....why they "need" their guns.
    Now, understand that this is just my opinion and here in America, we have free speech.
    Try to allow me my opinion.

  • Having a gun to protect myself and my family is my constitutional right! Take it away from me I'll just go to the black market like everyone else will.

  • Drugs are illegal too. I'm sure glad we don't have a rampant drug problem in this country.

    They also don't understand why strong arm and other weapons robberies and violence are so high in their countries either.

    I was just wondering if this was meant as sarcasm or are you for real.  I never met anyone who talked this way and they were being serious.  Were you joking?

  • Sure we have a right to bear arms but we need some control on who is bearing. I understand that you can get guns from gun shows, black mkt. etc but there needs to be something done to stop these crazies from getting their hands on one. I say “Good Luck" Why do you wait until a little 9yr old gets killed before you attempt to do something?
