Peter King Calls For Enhanced Gun Control Legislation In Wake Of California Rampage

Peter King Calls For Enhanced Gun Control Legislation In Wake Of California Rampage

Commented May 25, 2014 at 21:40:44 in Politics

“?? your point ?? Was there any **effective** gun control? Were there fewer mass shootings in the past? Were there more? Guns per capita?”

WESmith on May 26, 2014 at 10:11:57

“To quote the old saying "Guns don't kill, people do."
So no, there is no effective gun control.
We have "car control," yet we Americans kill 34,000 fellow Americans in totally avoidable car crashes each and every year. That isn't working either.
Cheering for one political party or the other also doesn't work.
Demonizing the "other political party" is also ineffective.
We need to think outside the box. Instead of rehashing old ideas that don't work, we need explore new methods.
Seems mass shootings has been going on forever and there is no obvious cure. Mass shootings is the most popular video games. Mass shootings in the most popular movies.”

“Or you're the dumbest person who's read it. The point is that if society wants to make the reproductive health of its members a societal concern, that society then has a right to know information that affects that health. Pregnancy certainly qualifies.”

“Apple loves the protection of our court system. So why don't they want to pay their fair share of taxes?”

“Apple pays millions in US taxes, more than any other tech industry leader does. Apple pays all that is legally required of them to pay the US Government.

Don't like it, tell your Congressperson to change the corporate tax laws.
Good luck with that.”

“No rational parent would encourage their young teenaged daughter to be sexually active. That would be common sense foolishness. Is there also a morning after pill for STD, vaginal damage, loose behavior for young boys, or targets for predators? No.

No rational parent could rightly encourage this. It's not political. It about the safety and well-being of my daughter.”
