Well, its sad, but I don't feel as though I have to suffer because some loser 20 year old with mental problems decides to slaughter a bunch of kids. This would have happened with or without guns. Be it an axe, a baseball bat, a knife....you get the picture. In the end, the ONLY reason that politicians want to get rid of guns and why it is even mentioned is because it is the key to a free and prosperous society. TO HEAR THE PEOPLE IS TO FEAR THE PEOPLE. And this is what they want to eliminate; its simple. I don't plan on living in a "free" country that doesn't allow for me to protect myself, family and freedom from a villain, be it a psycho like this guy, or a government out of control (which is what we are heading towards very fast). It is simply leverage. And it seems as though it came at a perfect time for Obama. Funny how these things work.....conspiracy BS aside. The founding fathers knew that this was the key to freedom, to be feared and respected by your government, and it should not change either way. I don't think it will reach a point right now where they will attempt to disarm us, however I do think that a registration program will begin...and from their each and every crime that happens like this will slowly nudge them towards total disarmament. Happened in Europe and Australia. That's how they do it, in stages. Pull the proverbial wool over our eyes, so to speak. And by that time, we just won't care. Just like the UK. Because apparently, in this country, our overreaching government believes that punishing the lawful and innocent is now the way to be.
