#1 Every time they say 'Gun Violence Prevention' we should state that categorically that it is a *LIE*. Strict Gun Control and the gun-free zone did nothing to prevent the 'Gun Violence' in Newtown --- except perhaps made it worse!

#3 Just look at her. She really DOES look like that.

#4 The many pleasures of family, home life, and leisure must be a terribly painful bore to her. To continue the D.C. treadmill and deny yourself and your prodigy at her age and financial ability can only be the result of the intoxication of power. Nothing short of absolute pure insanity. I do feel sorry for the poor woman. No, on second thought, I do not.

#6 How about "Constitution Violence"?

#7 There really is a thing in human nature ( its built in ) that makes it very hard to DO a killing of another human being. Even when you are combat trained to do it most men are not only reluctant to kill, most simply can't.
The very truth is that it is six men out of a hundred in a company and two or three men in any platoon who do 85% of the killing. Half a dozen men in any hundred soldiers do 85% of the killing. The trick is to find those six men and send the others to the rear to work in logistics. Then take good care of the six and use them.
Even the men who do the killing don't know who they are until they just wake up one morning and realize that they and maybe one other man have been the only people in the platoon who have a dozen kills. And it dawns on them that it isn't a coincidence, and everybody else knows it too.

#8 Not only does everyone else know it, they consciously or unconsciously shun you; they set you apart. Not a spoken thing (that I know of) just something that seems to happen. There is a lot more to this, but enough for now.

#9 The constitution is Politician control, no wonder she wants to damage it.

#10 ...in other words, when has the Constitutional limitations on power ever stopped a politician from 'pulling the trigger'.

#11 How about Congressional Idiot Prevention?

#12 I was discussing online with someone yesterday the idiocy of "gun free" zones. I went to wikipedia to look for a list of shootings at schools and was amazed at how many more shootings occur than most people remember (Pearl, MS; AR; Columbine, CO; VA Tech; North IL Univ; and now Newtown, CT). However, there are so many more shootings at schools that result in no deaths or 1 death (suicides), etc. that your average person wouldn't even know of. Just goes to even further prove that we must treat the perp, not the implement he/she uses to commit the crime.....
