Why is this news? The NRA say there is no problem and the GOP say there is no problem. They couldn’t possibly be wrong, and responsible American gun-owners using guns to kill people has nothing to do with guns.

Anyone who says otherwise just doesn’t understand how harmless guns are.

We should all believe them without a second thought.

2 dead. Are you telling me no where in Europe there was an event that left 2 or more dead recently? You Euros have the Brussels shooting to deal with. See if you can end violence in your own region before coming over here and telling us what to do. Unfortunately with all of your gun laws, criminals are still going to ignore them and use guns to kill people.

Bakhtin, you’re right, why is this news? How about they do a story on all the other 80+ million safe gun owners in America who went out hunting/shooting/etc. this weekend and didn’t kill or injure anyone? Why?…because a story like that doesn’t fit into you or your media’s gun-hating agenda that’s why.

Thats right TheNewWorld. Do as your party says and pretend this shooting is an isolated event. Pretend it doesn’t happen every few weeks. Pretend that European countries have as many gun deaths as the USA.

Whatever you do, don’t face reality. Just watch Fox and follow the party line.

Another standard issue FoxBot response. If you have spoken to one Republican you have spoken to them all, because they all say the same things. Just google it and you find blog after blog saying something like this:

“100 Million Gun Owners Didn’t Kill Anyone Last Week”
http://www.westernjournalism.com/100-million-gun-owners-didnt-kill-anyone-last-week/#o8BLxViiagq0ATmP.99

Clearly, they just copy and don’t bother thinking. I know they don’t bother thinking because a few seconds though reveals that it is logical nonsense. The week before 9/11 millions of terrorists didn’t kill anyone, but 9/11 still happened. Obviously “it didn’t happen last week so it never will” is nonsense, but we can all see that it doesn’t stop the FoxBots believing it.

Again, all you whiners need to get some perspective. The number of people killed in automobile-related deaths annually is three times higher than the number of people killed by all gun-related deaths combined…handgun, shotgun, and rifle. Look it up.

So why aren’t you calling for a ban on cars?

Because we are not stupid.

Cars serve a useful function, and kill by accident while performing that function.

A gun, in contrast, has no useful function (except for gun-nuts looking for an excuse to shoot someone), and when they kill it is because someone deliberately pointed the gun at someone and deliberately pulled the trigger.

Trying to say care deaths and gun deaths are the same is funny, but ridiculous. They are not remotely alike.

To the people (Europeans) that charge 50cents to one Euro to use the toilet. We have freedom. Our toilets are free and we have the right to own guns. While I drove from Berlin to Munich and then to Slovenia, I heard on three European radio stations the accounts of
three shootings. I also heard no German, Italian or Slovenian music on their radio stations. All English ( American)music. I choose to
protect my freedoms, not give them away as the EU says to.

Bakhtin, what stopped this idiot?, a weapon in case you did not read the story.

Bakhtin, if you head was not so far up your rear, you could learn that a lot of people have stopped crime in their homes by having a weapon. There are many stories how a person has stopped a crime with a weapon, but the main stream media does not report them because they do not fit into their agendas.
