Perhaps the NRA may wish to call another Press conference. They can then tell people what is now needed is a security guard at the door of every home as well as every school.

Whilst in countries with gun control and also having to deal with mentally unbalanced people, such as Norway, Holland, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Israel, Britain… this thing happens rarely.

It is time for Americans to free themselves from the mind control of this organisation.

When are we as a nation going to stop using gun control as a political issue when these shootings happen, and start looking at the real problem – mentally unbalanced individuals?

When we address long-term or permanent treatment for the profoundly mentally ill, we will lessen the number of these senseless massacres.

Anyone who owns an AR-15 is a paranoid delusional person, ie insane.

And for these folks, the NRA’s targeted message that the ultimate problem resolution tool is your God given ‘right’ to own semi-automatic weapons resonates like a macho wakeup bell.

As a result, even a ‘normal’ person easily feeds into the vortex of gun fantasies. Run into a stressful situation in life? Solution is well rehearsed and promoted by NRA. And after the first one, might as well keep going, it’s so easy to tap the trigger and no additional penalties for that!

Guns don’t kill people, PEOPLE WITH GUNS KILL PEOPLE !!

I guess murder didn’t exist until the AR-15 was created. Do you know what percentage of violent crimes in America happens from guns? Did you know that gun related violent crimes has dropped in America over the last two decades? Do you even care about the truth? Or would you rather just take liberties away from your fellow citizens because you know better? You are worse than the religous right. Might as well tear up the Bill of Rights.
