Somebody forgot to tell Bloomberg we already have a law banning guns from schools. We should pass a law to get rid of gun free zones as these are always the locations of these mass shootings. Teachers should be allowed to be armed if they wish.

Do the people of New York really like this asshole? Holy shit, Bloomberg - you can't even let 8 hours go by without demanding Washington "do something"?

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a longtime gun control advocate, released a statement through Mayors Against Illegal Guns, an advocacy group he co-founded with Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

"President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem," Bloomberg said. "Calling for 'meaningful action' is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership—not from the White House and not from Congress."

I agree.

I'll even go as far as to replace the word "Many" with "Too many". Obviously, we wish nobody ever did such things.

I wasn't trying to nitpick at your words. I was trying to emphasize that an extremely visible minority (people who go on killing rampages) sits at the front of our minds, while the overwhelming majority (people who don't) tend to be forgotten.

I got your point, tbr, and don't disagree with you. I do, however, fear that slight misuses of language (like the word "many") cause *some* people to run with it and to propagate the notion that this is a country teeming with mass murderers, thus getting public support for their cause de jour.

The vast majority of hot dogs are eaten without killing anyone. Therefore, if a few thousand or million hot dogs are contaminated with e coli or salmonella, we should not care or do anything about it.

One May quibble with the word many. Fair enough.

Certainly the majority of people that suffer some setback do not go on a shooting rampage. Some drink, or abuse drugs, or beat their wife, or kick the dog. And some put on their big boy panties and keep putting one foot in front of the other.

However, I will stand by the central premise of my statement, with the exception of maybe using the word "some" rather than "many."

There is too much dysfunction in the world to rationally think any other way...

"Many Americans lack the ability to handle adversity... "

Bullshit, most Americans handle adversity as well as possible without resorting to violence. Do you really think that everybody that loses a job, spouse, gets sick goes over the deep end. These nut cases are but a small portion of society, there have always been nut cases, who use adversity to kill, or to go on a rant with their agenda. They are coming out of the gun control woodwork, taking full advantage of the tragedy.

If what you claim is true almost everybody would be slain by almost everyone, damn TBR you are smarter than popping up with something that stupid.

"You have a right to own a firearm, and you have a responsibility to keep it out of the hands of idiots."

- Agree 100%

"Most of these incidents happen after some kind of setback. Divorce, loss of job, etc."

-Also agree, or at least it certainly seems that way.

"Many Americans lack the ability to handle adversity... "

Define "many".

"Many" people suffer terrible losses. Millions of people every year lose their child or spouse, get divorced, get fired, lose their home, or any number of big setbacks. The gigantic majority of them *do* handle it, without resorting to something like this.

"No reply to the question of how often automatic, semi-automatic, whatever you may call them -- say guns capable of more than 6 shots without reloading -- are necessary to prevent crimes. ""

Fine. I don't know. What difference does it make?

I'm gonna throw two more things into the mix...

I hear a lot of people talking about their rights, but very few talking about their responsibilities. You have a right to own a firearm, and you have a responsibility to keep it out of the hands of idiots.

And...

Most of these incidents happen after some kind of setback. Divorce, loss of job, etc.

Many Americans lack the ability to handle adversity...

Very well said tbr.

Outdoors, are you saying that a firearm is a weapon of mass destruction?
