    In today's Seattle Times:

    Never let a tragedy go to waste, eh? Most of the comments on this editorial were against it, and it's not like they made a very compelling case.

    Why don't they just say.... IF YOU OWN A GUN, BY LAW YOU NEED TO OWN A SAFE. It could be worse, they could make the schools have TSA on site.... oh wait that is probably gonna happen anyways.

    How about they just say if you are a criminal (like the people in this story) you cant own a gun. Then this would not have happened. Oh yeah, there already is that law and MANY more that were all broken. Do you really believe that one more law would be followed by someone breaking all the others? :nuts::nuts::nuts:

    Maybe it would eliminate some moronic newspaper editorials. The papers in the NW specialize in them.

    Unfortunately, if you believe that a law against keyboard usage would curtail the unlawful usage of it by the newspaper editorial staffs, you are sadly mistaken. It would only serve to keep those of us law abiding folk from responding to their inane drivel while letting the criminal element continue their rampage against society. (ROFLMAO)

    Well as soon as the Nascar races are over in Las Vagas,I'm sure the mother and boy friend? will go get a safe for the illegal guns they own. (not really sure that they can't own guns)
    As I am sure they will turn themselves in to authorities per the arrest warrants

    They want to look educated and caring by trying to enact these laws. They don't realize that these laws STILL won't make the people, that have no problem doing you harm,adhere to these type laws.
    They will still have the guns accessible to their kids.They will still own them ,even though the court said they can't

    How can they not see that more gun laws do nothing to the criminals?
    They only create more victims

    Personally, I think they should mandate locks (and lose the keys) for fallopian tubes and sperm ducts of people with IQ's below 100, and those who think socialism/communism, and gun control will make everything peachy-keen in the world...

    I just don't understand why... in almost every case, dealing with anything. Everyone wants to make a new law. why?! They say forget about the punishments, just make another law. Instead of passing new laws, how about make the punishments worse for those who break the already existing laws!

    How about just enforcing the laws already on the books? Never mind...that would be proactive......

    Because (like the proponents) making a new law is simple and it "feels good".. typical leftist thinking

    There is only about 2500 gun laws on the books according to some counts. Then there are the regulations. How many? Not even the government knows. Which one should be enforced? Careful you may have violated at least one.
