Gun Lobby Defends School Guard Plan
Schumer, Lieberman Blast Plan for More Guns

On NBC, Graham said he himself owns an AR-15, the type of assault rifle used by 20-year-old Adam Lanza in Newtown.

“I own an AR-15. I’ve got it at my house. The question is if you deny me the right to buy another one, have you made America safer?” he asked. “I don’t suggest you take my right to buy an AR-15 away from me because I don’t think it will work, and I do believe better security in schools is a good place to start.”

    United Kingdom Legal with mods - "a person must provide an exceptional reason and gain permission from the Home Secretary, making ownership all but impossible for a private citizen"

    No way an AR-15 in the UK is getting into the hands of anyone.

    If someone were to break into his home and steal one AR-15, that's one rifle in the hands of a criminal. If TWO AR-15s are stolen that's potentially TWO rifles in the hands of two separate criminals. So yes, in that case America IS safer.

    FYI.. many gun owners have locked down gun safes.

    Maybe, but how many owners DON'T keep their guns in a safe figuring - rightly - that keeping their gun in a safe is a hindrance to the very reason for having the damn thing in the first place? When a strung out meth addicted baby raper has broken into your home the last thing you want to do is try to remember the combination to your safe, THEN load the gun, and only then go protect your family.

    lots and lots of gun owners do have gun safes....

    how often do you hear of hundreds or thousands of AR-15 being stolen...

    else do you have heard about this.. but your spreading fear and not facts...

    Aparantly lots and lots of gun owners HAVE heard of criminals stealing guns. Not much point investing in a safe otherwise.

    Ok. So long as my leg is tied to a string attached to the trigger on that AR-15 that's pointed directly at your head.

    That is, so long as we are making equivalent comparisons.

    Um, sure, OK.

    AR-15's aren't for home protection, they are for defending outside against large groups of people. For home protection you use a 12 gauge shotgun or handgun. Unless of course you live in a castle with very large rooms and stone walls so the bullets don't over penetrate and go into your neighbors house.

    Dead is dead, no?

    A kid shot in the face by a mental illness sufferer is just as dead as the neighbor's kid who climbed the fence and drowned in the pool while everybody was at work, just so the Atkinsons could cool off on a summer day.

    The Kid who drank the Fabric Softener is just as dead, because Mrs. Atkinson hated static cling and Mr. Atkinson loved the Fresh Rain smell.

    The Kid who sliced their friend in half with the electric carving knife (stowed in an unlocked drawer in the kitchen) just so Mary Maplecrotch could cut her turkey meat in perfect proportional sizes.

    I don't get the insensitivity claim, going purely by the numbers.

    Losing a kid to faulty wiring in the bathroom is no less tragic than to have him shot. Generally people have no control over either. Nobody wants their kids to play with the electric knife. "I just couldn't envision that happening" I'm sure many a parent told themselves.

    The Insensitivity is on the part of the gun fetishizers. They are insensitive to the raw, hard, cold facts about the main causes of child deaths, and waste their time on the lesser causes of death.

    Let's see:

    If you get shot in the face, you're dead

    If you get electrocuted in the shower, you're dead.

    If you drown in a pool, you're also dead.

    If you drink too much Acetone, you're dead.

    If you eat marbles too big for your throat, you're dead.

    The shot in the face might be least painful of the five, likely being instant.

    And you fail to realize that losing a child in a car accident is no worse than losing one to a homicide.

    Trust me, both sets of parents are equally upset, and both children are equally dead.

    "Oh, my kid is deader than yours, he was shot instead of thrown out the windshield".

    Since anything can potentially cause death, everything should be legal to own. Anything from a butter knife to Tomahawk missile launchers. You should be able to buy grenades, land mines, vials of anthrax, mercury laden toothpaste or unlabeled asbestos filled jackets from a store. There should also be zero government regulation for food and products safety. Furthermore, zoning laws should be abolished completely. Should you neighbors decide to sell their houses to a company wanting to build a coal plant right next to your house, they should have that right. If you are afraid of inanimate objects, you need your overly-paranoid head examined.

    That chart should updated to include all firearm deaths. You shouldn't really compare only firearm homicides to most other things on that chart. That's comparing the major drivers of vehicle deaths (accidents) to a minority contributor to gun deaths (homicides.) I suppose the intent isn't really to inform, though.

    Total firearm deaths are north of thirty thousand per year, which puts them on par with most other items on that chart. Firearm deaths would rank above drugs, which are illegal, and only a little below automobiles, which require licenses to operate. Laws get passed to hamper tobacco use all the time.

    Perhaps guns should be regulated like cars? We could require prospective owners to pass tests and get licensed. Perhaps a psych test and a gun safety exam. That seems no more difficult than getting a driver's license.
