    After the recent shooting the dims and hollywierd are again calling for more gun control. BUT. Not a single one is willing to give up their weapons or armed bodyguards.

    If only the Democrats hadn't banned guns in Ohio and Texas. If bystanders had been allowed to own and carry guns, someone could have shot the shooters before they started and now everyone would still be alive.

    What has “gun control” got to do with “willingness” to give up guns?

    Bodyguards would surely be exempt from any “controls” wouldn’t they, or are you expecting The Donald to be completely surrounded by wrestlers and Kung Fu ninjas?

    Guns will always be available to anyone who is determined to get them...illegally..."Show me the money".

    Everyone would still be alive is not quite an accurate statement in my opinion, but agreed less people would have died. Unfortunately this is the world we live in today.

    True, however if some person has a gun available and ample of ammounition they will certainly do more damage than if they don't.

    Buying a gun illegally is fine for career criminals who will very seldom be committing mass shootings, having other things on their mind. (Making money)

    I bet most did not get the sarcasm in your post.

    Surely restricting and regulating supply of fully automatic assault riffles is a good thing though?

    No whoosh about it, you are living in a fantasy world if you think others could have stopped it if carrying guns, people still would been shot, perhaps not as many killed.
    Wake up and smell the rosee. Make a little sense for a change.

    It is hard to get sarcasm sometimes! 😉 :p

    Easy with you though you make it very plain you're being sarcastic! 😉

    FMFs post was dripping in beautiful sarcasm. How you missed that is beyond me. (And the many people who thumbed it up).
