    We should have run background checks when these upstanding people purchased their licensed handgun. What?! The didn't have licenses? So, criminals can get guns without licenses and subvert background checks?! Well, at least if we pass a bill requiring a background check we would have caught them. . . Oh, wait, that's not right.
    But, at least is would have stopped Newtown. Oh, nope, not there either. Aurora, yeah Aurora. . . nope. How about Columbine? How about Arizona? Geesh, can anyone name a case where a background check would have stopped someone from getting a gun?

      Then we repeal the second amendment, and bar all private citizens from owning guns. That would stop most of them.

      That what you want? Because, if the carnage keeps up and small measures keep being derailed by this bullshit, that's where it's going.

        I wish that argument would just be made. At least is is intellectually honest. I don't have a problem with that whatsoever. That, of course is what Article V of the Constitution is for. But these pieces of legislation being put forward not only violate the the 2nd Amendment, but they are ultimately ineffective.
