    Many years ago it was the NRA that pushed congress for background checks. That's why it's part of the law today and it's why we have the NICS system today. You can send a Thank You card to the NRA for that.

    The NRA trains thousands of people each year in firearms safety. Liberal organizations have trained exactly ZERO people in firearms safety. Instead they spend their time complaining about firearms safety.

    You're illiterate on this issue. Again.

    "oh wait all the rest of the West(ern) world manages to do that by full background checks for all gun sales and requiring registration and secure storage.............but thanks to the NRA we can't do that "
    Well, it's a mighty funny thing I had to go thru a background check & registration then. Of course, no one comes into my home uninvited to make sure I have my gun locked up; but, I live alone and keep it handy all the time-which is my constitutional right. But we know that it is imperative to do so with children in the home. And anyone who owns a gun and does NOT keep it locked up, should not be allowed to have/own a gun. I am not so sure I would be opposed to that person losing custody of their children. As for irresponsible people buying/owning guns, our own gov't made them available to criminals in the "Fast and Furious" "game" they played. So don't go blaming the NRA......they are the safest gun owners we have. Maybe you could talk to Eric Holder and get some insight-Ha!

    when 3000 die on 911 we go to war, when 12,000 die EVERY year we do nothing. In fact we do less than nothing as the Tea Party has made guns even easier to get and carry about.

    And what say you about the 30,000+ deaths a year by vehicle in the USA? Even though people take a test to have driver's licences and vehicles are registered by the state.

    Unfortunately the inanimate object the gun, worked perfectly. My guess is that the operator of said inanimate objects is at fault here.

    The gun didn't decide to kill the poor woman any more than the knives decides to stab those students last week. This is a tragedy and politics don't need to be brought into it.

    Guns don't kill people, people with guns kill people. Now if only there was a way to keep guns out of the hands of those that shouldn't have them........oh wait all the rest of the Westerm world manages to do that by full background checks for all gun sales and requiring registration and secure storage.............but thanks to the NRA we can't do that and another 12,000 americans at least die every year as a result.......when 3000 die on 911 we go to war, when 12,000 die EVERY year we do nothing. In fact we do less than nothing as the Tea Party has made guns even easier to get and carry about.

    What is wrong with humans?
    The gun didn't shoot her in the head.... the human did.

    Guns are totally safe... Can't say the same for the folks using them.
