    The simple fact that people are actually blaming the NRA (a very old civil rights group, and speaks for it's millions of law abiding gun owner, citizens) for all of these school shootings. Is fckn insane, it's like we have entered a twilight zone. The NRA is the last defense for our rights, not just the 2nd Amendment but the 1st Amendment and all the others. The same people that say a tyrannical government is a fairy tale and that we don't need our own protection, are the exact same fckn people who turn around and say Trump is tyrannical ruler. They are the same people that are trying to do away with our voting system, to make it so the only opinion that matters is that of the 5 giant cities in this country. They want open borders, they want free wages paid to every one. Which when you put all of their ideals together you realize it is a complete shit show and would never work. They are the opposition. They are the majority. And yet there is zero stats to support their claims that we would be safer without guns, or even just ar15s. There is zero stats that prove ar15s are more deadlier than other firearms. Reality is guns save lives, And they save 300,000+ lives per year. While there is only 30,000 lives lost per year(which is a lot less than the amount of people killed by other people's hands, or baseball bats) still tha5 number includes gang violence, which makes up most of it, and is typically hand guns, and the other majority of the 30,000 deaths is suicides. Only 6% of the 30,000 deaths is mass shootings. Where as guns save 300,000+ lives per year. If we would do ehat they want, which is banning guns. Then law abiding citizens would turn their guns in while criminals would keep their guns. Causing the 300,000+ lives saved by guns, to add to the only 30,000 lives lost. There is tons of stats that prove we won't be safer, at all, in fact it'll be worse.

    How is that all of these CNN drones can't put together that Dana answered her first question and explained how are system in place would work if law enforcement agencies and the government would do what they are already required to do. How are these gun grabbers so dumb, they have zero stats to back up anything they say or want. Yet their position won't change even when given facts

    So that video ended at a terrible time because we didnt get to hear her side. Automatic weapons are illegal. She said earlier they are against bump stocks. She says the exact same things that the people are asking for but because shes the NRA they start yelling at her and booing her. How are you gonna boo her when she says theres no reason that person should have had a gun and if the FBI and local law enforcement did their job he wouldn't have.

    the AR-15, as we know it today, is by no means a "military rifle", while it's original manufacturer, ArmaLite, had developed it to be a military grade rifle in the 1950s, over its lifetime of more than half a century, the AR-15, as it is know today, has never been and never will be a "military rifle" because its semi-automatic rate of fire was inferior to any weapon of war, even 60 years ago, it wouldn't have been an effective weapon in any military conflict
    In short, calling the AR-15 a "military rifle" is nothing more than a lie that is being used to scare the misinformed public into going along with cnn and many other media outlets and politicians who want to rid Americans of their ability to carry out their god-given right to defend themselves and their families 1 gun at a time, and the worst part being that once they disarm all the law abiding citizens, the criminals along with any crazy person who would use any gun as a weapon to hurt innocent people could still get them illegally, the only difference being that it'd be a turkey shoot since none of the law abiding citizens could fight back.

    It is not the guns fault for an irresponsible psycho to pick it up and kill. People like these insane killers are what make guns look bad. Guns were made to protect the people so we could fight back for our safety. Not for mentally insane people to kill. There are about 310 million people in America that own guns. Two people did the absolute wrong thing to do possible of killing the students. But why should these insane people, jeopardize our safety by taking our guns from us when they are the ones to do the wrong. Only .02% of gun owners have killed or injured someone. While the other 99.98% of gun owners use them the right and only way. Guns should definitely not be sold to these insane people. But guns should never be taken away from us. The second amendment tells us why. These crazy people need to stop because it makes gun owners look bad. If you ask a gun owner why he owns guns, they will tell you they have it for protecting their home and family. If you don’t believe me than look it up. Don’t destroy our rights just because the tiniest percentage of people do the wrong when we do it right.

    It is not now and from what I perceive never will be possible to conduct any form of civilized discourse where two differing opinions might make some sense. That is as long as mentally incompetent, undisciplined, disrespectful, self centered, shameless, ignorant, uneducated, mis-informed adolescents such as heard in this audience continue to somehow think that by interrupting by any method that their limited inner vision can construct, how can understanding, compromise and agreement close to middle ground ever stand any iota of succeeding? If your son or daughter was a member of this audience, you have good reason to be embarrassed and if you are not then their "I'm the only one whose opinion matters" attitude is here explained. Ms. Loesch demonstrated far more patience that I might have with this unruly troop. I might well have quietly stood, turned and left them all to carry on without me and my best guess being they would have been able to do equally as well with their tantrums in my absence. I hope my sentiments reach at least one of those present or a parent of one.
    Should an individual who is genuinely not competent have unsupervised access to firearms? Of course not! I would think that is obvious. Is it the fault of any private organization that this happens? No more than it is the fault of the parents of the group present at this meeting, after all I hear no one blaming those present in the audience or their parents for such frequent tragedies. Common case of point the finger and pass the buck.
    To many, the statement "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" is repugnant. Why then would you summon the police when you are in need of assistance? Don't they have guns? Ah, but you perceive them as good guys, good guys with guns. Do you know any other good guys? Do any of them have guns?
    It has been stated more times than I can count that no amount of law or regulation can prevent the loss of innocent lives whether by firearm or automobile or any other means. Mentally ill and criminally minded individuals wishing to harm someone will succeed because they will ignore all rules. If laws are constructed and put into place we expect those laws to be respected and adhered to. But wait, who are criminals? Right, they are those who choose to not follow the laws. How will more laws change that? Yes of course we as a society have penalties for breaking the law but at the time we deal with that part of the process the ill deed has already been committed. No amount of law or threat of penalty changed that.
    Every person has a natural right to protect themself. That right existed long before the concept of written law. If criminals wish to harm you say perhaps with a firearm, and in all likelyhood it will be a gun, what will you do? You might well call the police but the averidge 9mm bullet leaves the barrel at about 1140 f/p/s. That is in the neighborhood of 777 miles per hour. If your local police department can respond to that call in time to save you then by all means continue to lobby to outlaw firearms. If however you have grave doubts as to the top speed of a police car, your safety, and chances of survival , my advice would be to suggest to you that the next time you consider attending a demonstration to either outlaw or drastically reduce personal firearm ownership, your time might be better spent and serve you more fruitfully if you enroll into and attend a firearm safety and personal defense course.

    Why didn't law enforcement sweep in and grab him after all the warning signs? This Sheriff is dodging some of the responsibility. When confronted with possible warning signs, he plays to the crowd and gets them riled up about what needs to be done NOW instead of what should have been done THEN. I went to see about getting a gun, which I think everyone should do just to test the qualifications in your state. In Texas, it's not just walk in and leave with a gun. Most people wouldn't even want to sit around to fill out the amount of paperwork required to obtain a weapon. My point is, there IS a system in place. It may not be the best at this time but, it's there. Everyone should be doing their part.
