    David Gregory, of NBC fame, while in Washington DC studios, which has a ban on high capacity rifle magazines, holds up one during an argument with NRA’s Wayne LaPierre.

    So, those of you here crying for greater gun control, put your money where your mouth is. Have Mr. Gregory arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, which is a felony.

    He also sends his kids to a school with armed guards.

    I saw that interview. LaPierre did not want to talk about guns.

    Why should he. Guns didn’t kill those kids. An unemployed Generation Whine kid with Aspergers Syndrome who lived in his mothers basement and played video games killed those kids. Lets talk about that.

    He used a gun with an expanded clip to do it, Ace.

    What’s an expanded clip ?

  • Profile picture of John  Bravo John Bravo said 1 year, 10 months ago:

    He also used a car to get to the school. A kid with his mental makeup should have never been allowed to drive. Why are we not limiting access to vehicles for people that are this mentally deranged?

    Hey grouch…do this math… 3 thirty round clips compared to 10 9 round clips.

    Which one has more?

    Ooh, ooh, are they both 90? Now some more math…. which takes longer to fire the 90 rounds?

    I noticed. He wouldn’t concede a 30 clip for a 9 clip so he wanted to blame the media, Hollywood and video games for murder. Justice Scalia had an interesting remark about these slippery slopes like LaPierre used. He said, “They’re lies, but their also effective.”

    Just add “With easy access to a gun” and you’ll get the correlation between dead people and Whine kid with Aspergers. You’re trying the remove the gun from the tragedy when you say guns don’t kill people. There wouldn’t BE 27 dead people if the guns wasn’t present. So, yes, guns do indeed kill people.

    If a car had not been present, there wouldn’t be 27 dead people. Indeed, cars kill people.

    Milemarker….you have a NASTY habit of not staying on topic. IF you need an explanation of what the topic is, please ask

    With your anti gun stance, should your liberal poster boy be arrested and charged for having a clip that is illegal in Washington DC?

    Other than that, then you will need to start your own topic.

    Is the topic the video (23 minutes) or your extrapolation into clips in Washington DC (15 seconds)?

    I guess this on topic since LLM didn’t scold John about it.

    That’s an appropriate and accurate analogy. We have to buy liability insurance for cars even when we’ve never had an accident or harmed anyone. It ain’t exactly cheap, either. Since gun fatalities (both accidental and intentional) are almost as high every year as motor vehicle fatalities, we ought to require liability insurance on *each* gun just like we do *each* car. Some cars never leave the garage and you can get a break on your licensing if you plan ahead and tell DMV you’re not going to drive the car. How do you do something similar with a gun you bought when so many people say they have the gun for “self protection”. You really can’t say it’s for your self protection, then say you don’t intend to use it for a period of time. If it’s for self-protection, it’s always in use, even if it’s just sitting in your safe awaiting a self-protection event. In that case, you should have to pay liability insurance.

    Case example: Yesterday I read a news report about a man who let his 3 dogs out at night. The dogs began to bark and annoy his next door neighbor. The neighbor came over and yelled at the dogs across the fence to shut up and he then kicked the fence. The dog owner emerged with his gun in hand telling the neighbor he couldn’t tell his dogs to shut up and he fired his gun at the neighbor, hitting him in the head, and continued to fire as the neighbor ran away. Fortunately, no one was killed. But the neighbor had a bullet hole that went into one side of his mouth and emerged from the other side. Any liability there? The dog owner ONLY had his gun for his self-protection, which turned out to simply be his excuse for getting a gun. His demonstrated reason for owning a gun was to threaten or intimidate anyone he had a disagreement with. How do you control for that motivation when someone can simply say they want a gun to protect themselves with? Well, you can at least use liability insurance to make that kind of person weigh whether they must have a gun or, say, pay their rent or feed their family or pay them mortgage payment, buy your kid’s cub scout uniform, pay for a college expense, pay for cable television, pay utilities or any of a thousand financial priorities that most people would consider more important than having to pay an insurance premium on something that sits in a safe day-in and day-out.
