Guns cannot be made less deadly!!! But if they could, what would be there point?

Ever hear of the most famous antelope hunt in the world, the ONE SHOT competition in Wyoming?

Ever shoot a deer 11 times with your Bushmaster, or other semi auto?

Ever get clobbered by a clue stick??

Have YOU ever been clobbered by a clue stick?

Clu4U, the 2nd amendment is NOT about hunting antelopes.  Or about hunting AT ALL.

And even if it were, you completely failed to address the point.  Guns cannot be made less deadly, even though you mindlessly demand that, post after post.

It would appear that this idea is too distant for their sight. 225 years is a long time.

Here is the viewpoint of someone who spent her life working for gun control:

"You can go your whole life and see no one shot, but when something happens like what happened to these children, that wakes up every mom and dad, every brother and sister in the country."

She thinks Newtown had some influence on politics in Washington.

"I think people are more willing to talk about it," she said.

/ CBS News

That includes strong pro-gun politicians like Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who famously carried a gun and shot it in an ad for his 2010 campaign. Manchin told the president after Newtown that he's open to reasonable gun control.

"If Joe Manchin is doing that, then more moderate members for sure are really thinking it over too," Brady said.

When asked what kinds of laws she thinks could pass Congress right now, Brady said: "I think the background check is possible, and I think magazine and assault weapon bans are possible."

Brady does acknowledge that the assault weapons ban didn't prevent the 1999 Columbine school shooting, but said that should be a deciding factor.

"The fact is no law is going to be perfect ... but they do help, if they save any lives they're worth it," she said.

Why are you disinterested in the common thread of psychotropic drugs these perps are on, what causes them to commit acts of violence to begin with. Mental health problems are the cause of mass murder such as these we're seeing. And you boys insist on pointing at the chunk of cold steel lying there. Does anyone but a crazed, drug influenced or perhaps mentally ill person have the facility to commit such an act as we saw at Sandy Hook or Aurora?

Why do you keep acting like that's the only common denominator?

It's the many shooter guns in the hands of the drug users that do the killing, not the drugs.  The drugs kill no one, except possibly the drug user, and for millions of people they do enormous good, making it possible for mentally ill people to become productive members of society.

Let's use the big brains to continue to improve the design and use of psychotropic drugs, and at the same time make guns less deadly in the hands of a mass killer.

A gun is deadly, it cannot be less deadly. It's either deadly or it's not. What is a less deadly gun, one that is empty or has no firing pin, in which case, what's the point? Stop talking about less deadly guns, there's no such thing.
