You then then write about the 99% who never used their fire arms, so why have them in? More guns in circulation that can be stolen and used to kill people as those 20 kids have paid the price for.
There are countless civilized countries throughout he world, who have much lower murder rates due to strict laws on guns. Thats the proof. Only a fool would chose to ignore it.
Americans have been buying semi-automatic rifles since the creation of them. It goes WAY back. Now why is that?? Because we have a 2nd amendment. The only time we couldn't buy semi-automatic rifles was during the 10 years of the "Assault Weapons Ban". Which proved not to accomplish anything. The fact is it's our right to have these weapons and always has been because of the Bill Of Rights. Your attack on the 2nd amendment is an attack on the Bill Of Rights. IMO you're no different than those that attack the BOR with things like the Patriot Act, NDAA, Indefinite Detention, War on Drugs, Warrantless Searches and Censorship. Just the typical status quo nonsense of why we need to constantly give up our liberties.
Haha I have one speeding ticket in my background. It's from a private seller so there wouldn't be a background check. I am forced to buy from a private seller because of this stupid law that caused all the gun shops to sell out. Again, supply always meets demand.
Im done responding to your posts if you can't be an adult and avoid personal attacks. Clearly you aren't able to make a rational argument to counter my OP or you wouldn't have to resort to name calling.

You have about 40% of guns been purchased through private transactions and gun shows where there is no requirement for background checks!! It's obvious that guns supporters would rather let innocent kids die than restrict semi automatics etc so they can go play soldier at the weekend. They would rather come up with some bull**** about cars killing people than deal with the Tragedy that just occurred.
However, been called clueless by you is fine. I'd rather come up solutions to that massacre than hide behind some childish nonsense.

I'm sure the founding fathers foresaw the developments of semis etc, not. I'm sure they foresaw those weapons been used to slaughter innocent 5 and 6 year olds, not. If they could, I'm sure they would have put in the appropriate language in the 2nd amendment to prevent this lunacy. However, if needs another change in the constitution, then bring it on.
