  • Democrats vow action on gun control after California massacre

    I'm shocked, shocked I tell you


    Newly ascendant Democrats are promising congressional action on gun control amid a rash of mass shootings, including a late-night assault at a California bar that killed 12 people.


    Measures including expanded background checks and a ban on assault-style weapons are likely to reach the House floor when Democrats retake control after eight years of Republican rule.

    Saw a woman on TV this morning. She is unhappy and understandably. She didn't want prayers, she wants gun control.
    Doesn't she understand that gun control enabled the Thousand Oaks killings by disarming the victims.

    There were 6 unarmed police officers in the club.

    If your religion says suicide and murder are wrong; Aren't you doing both if you are not prepared to defend your life and the lives of others?

      When I heard about the off duty LEO's in the club I thought they should have been able to something even if they were unarmed

      Later I found out the BG threw in a smoke device first, very likely given the lighting, the crowd and the smoke no one knew where the shots were even coming from

      Probably the reason the first responding officer was shot

        He was a trained combat Marine. He expected police to arrive. Perhaps he was after the deputy he killed and was laying in wait.

          They keep saying it was a "high capacity" mag. In CA that's anything over 10. So was it the standard 13 round mag that comes with the gun or an aftermarket big one. They should say it didn't have the "CA restrictor mag". CA's 10 round mag should not be the default capacity for the nation.

            Very good point. When the Democrats get to pick and define the terminology, we are at a great disadvantage.

                Two key points... gun free zones empower and encourage madmen.
                GFZ are an essential par of mass killings.

                The House can be in Democrat control and they can pass "gun control." But TRump can veto any bill and there are nor enough votes to over-ride.
