As tragic as mass shootings are, they must be taken in perspective. They are NOT a major problem. More people are killed on an average weekend in Chicago alone than died at Newtown.

The ONLY purpose to be served by further restrictions on the citizens' rights to keep and bear arms is to assure tyrants that those "subjects" are defenseless.
Obama doesn't care about dead children. He's indifferent to the suffering of their parents. There isn't a single coherent argument on his side of the case. He lies about the issue. It's pure politics.
