Anyone who supports more gun laws must clearly explain what their proposal will accomplish and HOW it will. Most of these people advocating for new gun laws have no understanding of how guns work.

How have gun laws protected us so far??

Why doesn't Murphy ask why CT defeated a bill that would have permitted treatment of Adam Lanza against his will and potentially save those children from him? That would be CT Senate bill 452 if you wish to look it up.

I wonder if Murphy even knows that Lanza didn't empty the magazines he had. Nah. Facts overwhelm liberals.

Murphy is part of the problem. He's on the Behavioral Health Oversight Subcommittee. http://www.cga.ct.gov/ph/medicaid/mmcc/bh_Oversight/bhoc1104.htm

I want gun laws to prevent another Sandy Hook, so I recommend a complete confiscation program of all guns. Of course it will work, because if Adam Lanza didn't have guns, those kids would be alive today. Since guns kill then we must take them away, so there will be no more killing. Now everyone will be safe and happy. *argument fail*

1. The article above contains no cogent argument/coherent set of facts. There's absolutely NO CONNECTION between "tough" gun laws & mass public killings. NONE: Never has been, never will be: that's a FACT. In reality, where there are the toughest gun laws, there are the MOST public/mass homicides: FACT. 2. There's absolutely NO CONNECTION between number of weapons/types of weapons owned & number of killings--never has been. If there were, then statistics would show a much different prevalence of mass murders than they show (see point #1 again) 3. The writer can use all the odd statistics from Japan--and add Colombia, Mexico, Nigeria & Venezuela--but it won't prove any correlation between gun laws & number of guns & incidents like Sandy Hook. The USA was founded the way it was for a reason. The Constitution & amendments stand for something that is valid & coherent. Has nothing to do with mass murders! Making biased, irrational arguments incoherently & not "on point" doesn't address "root causes", nor make logical connections--it's all propaganda & "doublespeak" & that's how FASCISM starts in a Socialist state like the U.S. has become.... 4. The writer is biased, liberal, espouses an "anything goes" philosophy about "pet issues", yet falsely attacks others with words. The writer is essentially "using" innocent dead children to promote their own political/personal agenda--SHAME! Please stop the tactic! NOTHING the writer says/wants will change Sandy Hook; nothing would've!
