Original Starting post for this thread:
By the end of the long weekend — after President Barack Obama had spoken and the red, white and blue confetti strewn along Pennsylvania Avenue had been cleaned up — at least 91 people across America had been killed by guns. That's more than three times the number of caskets needed in Connecticut after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. These 91 people died, not in a single burst of violence over a few minutes, but spread over a three-day weekend, like an autoworker stealing an entire convertible one part at a time to escape notice.

It's an inescapable conclusion, even from our small sample, that there are many ways to get killed with a gun in America.

Based on interviews with police, prosecutors and family members in all but a few of the cases, we tallied 53 homicides where one person killed another. There were another three homicides where multiple people were killed. There were six murder-suicides, and six suicides. Five accidental shootings. Three shootings by police, and at least two by civilians in self-defense. That's 78 horrors with 91 dead. On a different randomly chosen weekend, the count might shake out differently.

Twenty of the 91 were too young to buy a beer at a baseball game. There's the 16-year-girl in Oregon named Kayla, who was shot to death by the highway, apparently by her 24-year-old boyfriend, who then shot and killed himself with the handgun, according to police. The 6-year-old girl in Cleveland — her name was Navaeh, and her family called her "Nae Nae" — who somehow got her hands on what police said was the illegal handgun of her felon father, and shot herself in the face. The 18-year-old in Baton Rouge, Terrance, who was playing with a .357 Magnum; when it went off, the bullet missed him, and hit his 2-year-old brother, Travin, in the chest.

It's hard to miss how male the victims are: Out of 91 dead, 75 were men or boys. And the men were even more likely to be the ones pulling the trigger.

and the beats and deaths go on...

I said they oppose laws that threaten the 2nd amendment.

They do not get involved with laws that punish the person.

The only part they are against are the restrictions on the weapons and mags.

Read what they said about the law

Just because the bill contains both does not mean they are against the whole bill

I said laws that deal with the punishment of a crime. They oppose laws that try to strip our 2nd amendment rights from us.

lol I said legal to carry.I don't think a stolen gun you can carry around and be legal. NRA does not get into laws of the state about how to punish criminals. If you were told that you are sadly misinformed

Whats the difference between a gang and a militia? Gangs lean towards selling crack, where militias tend to be meth dealers

So gangs should carry guns everywhere they go...but they should be 'worked on"..great logic

Bottom line, if the NRA would stop opposing gun laws with teeth, this kid would have been in prison and this girl might still be alive

No 8 everybody who can own a gun legally should carry one everyday. I don't give a damn what race they are. Street Gangs come in all races not just black they need to work on them all.
