... "I should be the one to determine what is necessary to defend myself, my family and my property. Consider, for example, the story of Korean business owners who defended their property from looters during the L.A. riots — while police either did not respond or retreated — firing pistols, shotguns, and yes, even automatic rifles from their roofs. It’s a good thing for them they didn’t share your irrational view on what is or isn't 'enough.'" ...

Gun-rights advocate: High-capacity magazine restrictions 'makes sense'

"A leading gun-rights advocate says there is no constitutional barrier to restricting the sale of high capacity gun magazines such as the one used by accused Tucson shooter Jared Loughner and that such proposals are justified to prevent 'looney tunes' from committing more gun massacres."

"Robert A. Levy, who served as co-counsel in the landmark Supreme Court case that established a Second Amendment right to bear arms, said there was no reason the court's decision in that case should apply to the purchase of high-capacity gun magazines." ...

... "Just as nobody wants to upset the apple cart by stating the obvious: there are way too many guns in private hands and access to them has become easier than ever. That's going to have the Second Amendment nutcases fly into an unreasonable tizzy and the [NRA] rushing to the bathroom with a runny belly. So we dance, play hop-scotch, and do the politically correct jig around what is the most important issue while playing ostrich and burying our collective heads in the sand lest the NRA and its coo-coo klatch blows them away with a trusty 12 gauge shot gun or an AK-47 Assault Rifle. Hey, what's a right for if not to be exercised?" ...

"Jared Loughner was considered too mentally unstable to attend community college. He was rejected by the Army. Yet buy a Glock handgun and a 33-round magazine? No problem."

"To protect the public, we regulate cars and toys, medicines and mutual funds. So, simply as a public health matter, shouldn't we take steps to reduce the toll from our domestic arms industry?" ...

... "But are background checks really working? Sure a look into one’s past can partly determine what type of person they may be, but there is so much more than meets the eye. In order to really distinguish if someone should be able to own a gun, a psychiatric test should be given. It would be able to determine stability, which is a very important factor. Many tragedies involve a shooter who has had a troubled past and mental issues, and the fact of the matter is these shooters could have been stopped." ...

Submitter's Note: Just as the Tuscon shooter could have been stopped if the Pima County Sheriff would only have done his job with no 'stricter laws' needed.

... "The US has laws that restrict the purchase of firearms, but they vary from state to state. In Arizona, for instance, Loughner would have undergone a criminal background check but no psychological evaluation."

"Ladd Everitt, the director of communications with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence ... said the current laws were insufficient in combatting gun violence."

"The US should emulate laws in other countries, said Mr Everitt, whereby in addition to running a criminal background check, 'they would also conduct an investigation whereby they would interview your spouse, or co-worker, or friend. They would require a letter of mental health from your doctor attesting that you are of sound mind'." ...

"Nothing hard about this one: There’s absolutely no reason why private parties should have easy access to technology for firing multiple lethal shots in rapid succession from a pistol. Absolutely no reason. The U.S. Constitution has nothing to do with it, not even the transparently political decision the Supreme Court recently made about the limits of the Second Amendment." ...

Submitter's Note: So no semi-autos and no revolvers, right? And soon after will be a call to get rid of 'technology for firing multiple lethal shots in rapid succession from a rifle'. These people will not be satisfied until we 'private parties' are back to single shot muzzle-loaders.

The tragedies caused by the deranged man with the legal gun continue to cascade across this Arizona community and the nation." ...

That action, which saved lives of countless men destined for Utah in the D-Day Invasion, was just the beginning of Winters' illustrious career. The attack on Brecourt was a classic example of a fire-and-manuever attack on a fixed position. He and his dozen men attacked a force of some 50 Germans.

"It's from that perspective that I have to raise an eyebrow when an obviously disturbed young man opens fire on a crowd and it becomes Sarah Palin's fault. Do I think her gun-sights flier was irresponsible? You betcha. Do I think the Tea Partiers say awful, inflammatory things that defy logic? Certainly. But it's shortsighted to think these people have a monopoly on irresponsibility and lunacy. I've written before that these screaming-point sound bites are debasing America, but with history's pendulum swings, both the left and the right have been guilty of this." ...

"But emerging information about primary suspect Jared Loughner suggests that he was motivated not by a climate of hate but rather by his own troubled mind and a personal vendetta against Congresswoman Giffords, who was injured in the attack. The investigation has not concluded, and more information could come to light. But for now, a majority of Americans are dismissing the notion that the shooter was set off by a Sarah Palin political map, tea party anger, or talk about 'second amendment remedies.'" ...

... "Sen. Patrick Leahy remarked that Vermont has very little in the way of gun control laws and yet is the safest state in the nation. But he says, he wouldn't want Vermont's liberty to be replicated in urban settings. Parsing that, he wants Vermonters to be able to defend themselves against criminals, but not the folks in New York City. If you live in a big city, Sen. Leahy wants you to be a sitting duck, open prey for any whacko with a gun that comes along."

"And he never seems to have paused to consider the possibility that Vermont is as safe as it is because the bad guys never knew who might be packing heat and thus might be in a position to blow them away if they try something nefarious." ...

... "If America has a national failing, it is a tendency to lose its sense of proportion when dealing with senseless tragedy. We saw it after the school shootings at Columbine and again after the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. We are seeing it now after Tucson."

"The facts of the situation are simple enough. As Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was holding a 'Congress on the Block' meeting with constituents, a gunman approached, shot her in the head and opened fire on the people around her. The suspect ... is regarded by almost everyone who knows him as dangerous and deranged ... but under Arizona's easy gun laws was able to purchase a semi-automatic handgun with 30-shot clips ..." ...

Submitter's Note: What this article tells me is that the editorial staff of the WFP have no conception of US gun laws and aren't willing to do a little research to avoid grotesque errors about 'easy access to firearms'.

"The tragedy of Tucson hasn't shaken us out of bad political habits."

"Instead of promoting a sober conversation about the dangers of violent political talk, it has reinforced divisions between left and right. ..."

"More important: We have not focused at all on how the militarized rhetoric on the right is tightly connected to our national failure to enact the gun regulations that might have saved lives in Arizona." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Like what? E.J. has no suggestions for what new laws might have prevented a violent nut-job with a history of making death threats from carrying own these murders. One thing that leaps to my mind however, is that perhaps the Sheriff should have arrested the loon?

Under the guise of the Second Amendment ('a well-regulated militia,' etc.), any crazy person has access to semi-automatic weapons that have nothing whatsoever to do with militias or hunting. And, under the guise of patriotism, people like Sarah Palin irresponsibly target people like Congresswoman Giffords, literally and figuratively making them targets for the free-floating insanity of people like Jared Loughner, the Arizona assassin." ...

"As we enter the new year and decade, we should use [the Tuscon shootings] as an opportunity to reexamine and tighten our gun control laws to prevent people like Jared Lee Loughner from buying guns. We should also reinstate the automatic assault weapons ban that allowed Loughner to kill and injure 19 people in just a few minutes. If not, we would be doing more harm than just eroding our political discourse. We would be dishonoring the fallen of the Tucson shooting, and the mourning families of almost 100 people who are shot by a bullet every day in America." ...

"Senseless, indiscriminate deaths mounted to at least 125 in 68 separate mass shooting incidents across the United States in 2010 ..."

"Saturday’s attempted assassination of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona added yet another chilling event to the statistics, with six deaths and a total of 20 people fired upon. ..."

"And that’s just from shootings by folks who are mentally unhinged. Add in all the criminal stuff — the gang violence, the cop killings, the holdups gone wrong — and there are some 30,000 gun deaths a year in the United States." ...

Submitter's Note: Actually Mack, when you add up the criminal stuff and leave out the suicides and accidents, there are some 12,000 'gun deaths' a year. Tragic? Yes. Preventable by passing more gun laws? Not according the the CDC.
