    No, people who have had enough of mass firearm related killings are pushing hard for gun control. Plenty of them are conservatives.

    If the Republicans move now on gun control, I can't wait for the MSM headlines, "Conservatives finally move on gun control, when white people get killed...."

    We should have some more laws for the sake of words in a book? The administration of existing laws are regularly winked at. Hey, I remember when "There ought to be a law..." was a political cartoon spearing nonsensical thought.

    What's the value of more of the same nonsense? Are we really so stupid to think that not enough laws are the problem?

    I'd say the root of the problem is about a culture that is polarized and divided by loud voices that drown out the ability for personal introspection and decision making.

    Folks need to step back and seriously think for a change rather than buy into the evangelizing of zealots.

    My two cents worth...

    The only thing that stops a good guy with a gun is bad guy wth a gun.

    Watch the late night talk shows...those unicorn jockey "authorities" think and preach more and more nonsense gun control is the answer when it has never been the answer before.

    Everybody needs to do a little research and find out how many mass shootings were pre-GCA when a firearm could be ordered with the only question being..."What's your mailing address." Now with over 20,000 Federal, state and local laws we're having practically a god damned war. Fifty-nine were killed in Vegas...how many have died in Chicago this year. YTD: 499...57 in September yeah...Chicago...the bastion of the Second Amendment. o_O

    The math of
    mass shootings

    This data — compiled from Mother Jones; Grant Duwe, author of “Mass Murder in the United States: A History,” and Washington Post research — does not include gang killings, shootings that began as other crimes such as robberies, and killings that involved only the shooter’s family.

    People killed in mass shootings make up less than half of 1 percent of the people shot to death in the United States. More than half of gun deaths every year are suicides. In 2015, more than 12,000 people have been killed by guns, according to the Gun Violence Archive.

    We get it... A gun ban works for Canadians. How's it working for Mexico? Guns aren't the problem. Culture is the problem. Fixing things with pills is the problem. There are 100 different things that are the problem. Do you blame the car because a drunk driver hit your family head on and killed them? Or do you blame the idiot who thought it was OK to drive the car while drunk?
