You don't think gun safety is a good idea? Yet, using those children to promote stronger gun regulations is just fine and dandy...

I'm all for it.....

However, when you are not able to provide a valid discussion, you slam people and call them names....

Typical...

So tell me the difference between this and what the Westboro Church does at funerals?
Did you read this article?

Study: The U.S. has had one mass shooting per month since 2009

It may go against every anti gun person...but it appears to hold some water with the truth...again, the anti gun folk may not like it....

The westboro church and this are completely different......they are protesting because of the hate of military folks, this is being done to promote stronger gun regulations or at least tighten up the laws that are already in effect.

Read between the lines. They are blaming the dead for their own deaths. See, if we armed those teachers, those kids, and they, would still be alive. More guns are the solution.

As the daughter said, "My Mom was an Educator, not a Marine".

You are so sorely mistaken, it's almost sad. No, it IS sad.

Guns did NOT cause that tragedy.

Actually guns were the instrument of the idiot that caused the tragedy. So indirectly guns did cause the tragedy.

Unfortunately for the law abiding gun owners out there, there are non law abiding gun owners. This in itself makes gun laws necessary.

Sorry if I misunderstood your stance.

When you mention "Newton and a need for gun laws", I read it as more new laws are required since the existing laws didn't stop the killings.

I really have little sympathy for those that are "upset". They can screw. And besides, guns do save lives. Had their been an armed policeman at the school, most likely the only one dead wouldve been the shooter.

I'll bet that you're one of those people who think it's just peachy keen that someone can be sued for sending a text message to a recipient that gets into an accident because they read that message while driving.

No, I'm sorry, but guns did NOT cause that tragedy any more than a car is at fault for a drunk driver crashing into someone.

Do you honestly believe the crap you write? Honestly?!?!??!?
