Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen (right), on Wednesday greet Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (in wheelchair) and Abbott’s wife, Cecilia, in San Antonio. The Pences arrived to meet with victims of Sunday’s church shooting.

The gunman who committed the massacre in a rural Texas church fired continuously for several minutes, methodically shooting his victims -- including small children -- in the head, execution-style, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation said Wednesday.

Interesting that there's little outcry over the killing of 8 children with a gun but had they been aborted all hell would break loose.

As has been the case in the past, the chance for a true discussion on gun control is fading into the sunset because of gun nuts like Pack and others. Not once during these past few days did he ever offer up any rational reason for owning an AR-15 style weapon, the gun of choice of mass shooters. The NRA has served them well while helping raise that "great" America to the point of having one of the highest rate of homicide by gun in the world.
...
I was chatting with a few friends from other countries during the week and they are amazed at this gun craze by some of our citizens. They can't comprehend why we allow this to continue. In their countries, the homicide rate is much lower even though crime rates are not much different. The only region of the world where gun violence is as high or higher, other than war torn regions, is Central and South America which we often consider third world. Are we becoming a third world thanks to the stupidity of gun nuts?

Lets see here, a mentally deranged liberal democrat shoots up a movie theater in Colorado, a mentally deranged liberal democrat shoots up a school in Connecticut, a mentally deranged liberal democrat shoots up a softball game in VA full of Republicans, a mentally deranged liberal democrat shoots up a concert in Vegas, a mentally deranged liberal democrat shoots up a church in Texas (and stopped by an NRA member with an AR 15), a mentally deranged liberal democrat attacks a US Senator mowing his lawn (breaking 5 ribs), a mentally deranged Muslim whom deranged liberal democrats let in on a "Diversity Visa" rides down pedestrians......and you blame guns? We don't need gun control. We need liberal democrat control!

abb, show some proof that they were all "liberal democrats" ok?

abb's just running his mentally deranged Republican mouth to attempt to look "smart." The logic from the past few days has been pretty much bottom feeder type thinking. Typical Trump demographic and abb proved the point hands down.

And while not true of course, even if they were all deranged liberals, what difference would that make?
Pack or anyone else can't tell you why he needs AR-15. Because he doesnt. They simply WANT one. There is zero need for anyone to have a gun like that. Other than the military.

Hey RBear - The discussion is fading into the sunlight precisely because people of your ilk start name-calling ("nuts") instead of discussing meaningful solutions. You callously dismiss as irrational any critical thought and fact to which you disagree. Your haughty and arrogant rhetoric is precisely why the debate will die and/or you will always lose.
.
As to your foreign friends, of course that cannot understand freedom in America because they haven't lived it. A great example comes from USA Today and their explanation of possible "modifications" to an AR-15. Bear in mind this was USA Today and not some Junior High newsletter. Ever heard of a "chainsaw bayonet"? I'm sure you haven't but take the time to Google it, which obviously nobody at USA Today had sense enough to do. They showed adding a real chain saw as a possible modification to an AR-15. Let that soak in for a minute.
.
The ridicule of such nonsense was swift with people coming up with similar options. My favorite thus far was the Chuck Norris modification with a light saber, honey badger, and Kevin Spacey running close seconds. Yet, you want to lecture us on guns and gun control. SMH. SMMFH.

Abb conveniently omits the biggest mass shooting - in Las Vegas last month - was perpetrated by - wait for it! - a TRUMPTARD like herself. She also mistakenly attributes the Newtown massacre to a 'liberal dem' when in fact the shooter's mother, Nancy Lanza, was a super conservative 'prepper' whose arsenal made it possible for her son to slaughter so many small children. Thankully, she too died at his hand. I wonder if abb's employer knows she packs heat on campus.

Pack, as for my friends their freedom is no different than in America save the gun thing. That's what's perplexing to them. Remember, I said crime is lower there than here so guns to provide any more freedom than not having them. If anyone has been incapable of rational debate, it has been the gun nuts. If calling you Mr. Packman will get to actually consider banning AR-15 style weapons, I'll do it. I'm that serious about ending this crisis in America, which apparently you're not.
...
Every time someone (PM, myself, JT, others) has brought up reinstating the ban on AR-15 style weapons, you and others have pushed back so hard with irrational points. abb is a great example.
...
Not ONCE have you talked about solutions. All you've talked about is holding on to that security blankie you have today that serves no productive purpose.

Impotent men have long compensated, or attempted anyway, with firepower. Don't know what abb's trying to compensate. Maybe her dad wanted her to be a boy. Maybe she's a closeted transgender conservative: can't come out, goes commando instead. Just hoping her unfortunate spawn, if any, don't have access to her stockpile.
