    Yes REALLY...would gun control have stopped Newton ? the guns were purchased legally,how are you going to stop a mother who was indulging her son by exposing him to those guns, ones that in his demented mind he had no trouble accessing..What law did she break...had she not been a victim would she have been held liable for all the carnage her son caused..Gun control would not have stopped Newton, not stopped Aurora...you got people not playing with a full deck upstairs getting access to guns...heck there are people passing CCW classes that I may not believe should carry a gun, but I dont get to make that choice, when someone gets a gun how does one know what is in their heart of hearts and their intent to do harm

    Bon, I am saying its time for Republicans to stop running candidates in favor of gun control.

    True , but the ones that were pro gun didnt make it past the early rounds of the primaries, some of which I preferred...so whats the solution...adopt a platform first and then see who wants to back it up...I agree that Mitt was not the BEST of candidates...but he was a good man, and his pro gun stance from his Mass days did not come into play in the grand scheme of things

    Yes, adopt a platform and see who backs it up with words AND BY THEIR PREVIOUS ACTIONS.

    But we played that game already....the primary process hung every candidates misstep and past history around their necks like an anchor...Everyone was so quick to point out how candidate A-B-or C voted on issue XYZ when they were a legislator or governor or county dog catcher...and then we wonder why candidates are so reluctant to take a stance on any issue

    You want to talk Gun Control? Let's talk about Chicago... they (and they whole state of IL) have some pretty tough gun control laws... Over 500 murders last year in the city of Chicago alone. That's Newtown all over about every three weeks.

In truth, I'd be willing to bet money the majority of those polled were come-heres, not from heres. We have a lot of those, mostly Obama sheep.
    It a very liberal college in CT. Been known for decades as a left wing nut case.

    And it has always been known for being very left wing nutty. It's a liberal arts college. When I was looking at colleges circa 1980 they didn't offer any real degrees.Just a bunch of waste your money liberal BS for a ton of money.

Gun Control policy was absolutely abandoned by the Republican party in the last election, I hope they come around in the mid-terms.
    Maybe but Romney was the lesser of two evils. Anything was better than Obama.

    That would be Newtown CT. No such legal place as Sandy Hook, CT.
