"Most Americans say stronger gun control laws are not the answer to the shootings last weekend of a U.S. congresswoman and the killing of six others."

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, taken Monday and Tuesday nights, finds that only 29% of Adults think stricter gun control laws would help prevent shootings like the one in Arizona last Saturday. Sixty-two percent (62%) disagree and say stronger gun control would not make a difference. (To see survey question wording, click here.)" ...

"As we talk about a new ban on large-capacity magazines, let’s consider the history. Back during the 1994-2004 'assault weapons ban,' Congress never banned large-capacity magazines. It banned their manufacture and import. If you had one, you were as free as can be to use it and even sell it. Between the time Congress passed the law and the day the law went into effect — and even during the debate over it — manufacturers cranked them out by the gazillion to get them grandfathered in. It's entirely possible that the 'ban' put more large-capacity magazines on the street than would have been there without the ban." ...

... "... We believe that the murders in Tucson were more than 90 percent the consequence of the shooter`s insanity, and less than 10 percent due to the political climate. We know he was crazy, but he did fix on this Congresswoman as the object of his twisted rage. We cannot measure the precise components of his delusions, but those who say the crime was primarily the result of Arizona`s loose gun laws and political climate are less accurate, in our judgment, than those who attribute it mainly to the shooter`s schizophrenia. ...

"Within minutes of learning of the tragic mass murder in Tuscon, Arizona last Saturday, the establishment media began shooting from the hip on who they thought was to blame. They knew nothing about the killer, but it was clear they were cocked and ready with a template that fit their jaded view of anyone who owns a gun."

"Reporters were loaded for bear. Without even a shred of proof the delusional killer had seen Sarah Palin's election-related political comments, or had ever listened to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, they began shooting off at the mouth, saying that "incendiary" language from Palin, Limbaugh and members of the TEA Party was to blame for what had happened. They had decided to shoot first, and asked questions later." ...

"Gun guru Gabe Suarez and I got into it a bit when I called him insane. Setting aside any question of whether or not Mr. Suarez’s past behavior indicates less than robust mental health (Jesus loves him this I know), I took Suarez to task for suggesting that a shooter should keep his finger on the trigger whilst pointing a gun at a bad guy, when not in the actual process of shooting them. This struck me as the worst kind of advice: the kind that can get innocent people killed. Again, Suarez knows more about gunfighting than I’ll ever know. But that doesn’t make him right. In fact, in this, Suarez is dead wrong. First, let’s take another look at what he actually said on the subject on his warriortalknews.com blog . . ." ...

"For a company that has been doing business in the United States for only a quarter century — one of its competitors has been in business in America since 1852 — Glock has been remarkably successful. Glock declines to provide specific sales figures, but the company is the leader in handgun sales to American police departments — indeed, a whopping 65 percent of them use Glock guns. On top of that, it has considerable global sales and remains popular with the private citizens who buy most of the guns in the United States." ...

"When the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the handgun ban in the nation's capital in 2008, Representative Gabrielle Giffords applauded the ruling ... she has always been pro-gun, and she represents a state with a history of proud gun ownership and lax gun laws."

"So there is at least a touch of irony to the fact that her name is being invoked, following her attempted assassination on Saturday, in calls for tighter gun control ..." ...

KABA Note: Unsurprisingly Time fails to mention that the Tuscon shooter had never been adjudicated as mentally ill. So what they are advocating is denying peoples' civil rights based on a suspicion that they might, someday, be dangerous.

... "Guns have one essential purpose: to put holes in things; often people. It can be argued that putting holes in deer or elk for meat is reasonable; that equipping cops and soldiers with the ability to administer holes is reasonable; and that allowing people to put holes in targets for recreation is reasonable. But the ability to deliver holes represents an awesome power — the power to kill, quickly and impersonally. Saying such power should hardly be regulated at all — the NRA's basic stance — is ridiculous and irresponsible. Even the most ardent gun-control advocates aren't saying normal, law-abiding citizens can't have weapons for whatever reason. ..." ...

Submitter's Note: True; in their Heller brief the Brady Bunch was not opposed to all guns, just all handguns. And they weren't opposed to long guns as long as those remained unloaded and inoperable.

Yet it still seems wrong that a nutjob who was considered too dangerous for a math class, and who was viewed by the military as too dangerous to tote a weapon, could nonetheless be judged, under federal law and the state of Arizona, as sufficiently fit to speedily obtain a semiautomatic Glock down at the local chain store." ...

That seems to be a given,' said William Harwood shortly after emerging Thursday afternoon from a meeting with fellow board members of Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence." ...

Submitter's Note: HORSEHOCKEY! If the shooter (I refuse to sully my keyboard with his name) had had 4 10-round mags, more people might have been shot. Indeed, if he'd been limited to 10 round mags, maybe he would have practiced reloading so that bystanders wouldn't have been able to stop him when he paused to reload.
