Sueing the state and school system for failure to protect. I always like when they add "It's not about the money."

Right.

Re: First lawsuit filed over Sandy Hook massacre

This is from Piers Morgan in one of the papers today mentioning Australian gun laws ,

The ‘more guns, less crime’ argument is utter nonsense. Britain, after Dunblane, introduced some of the toughest gun laws in Europe, and we average just 35 gun murders a year.

Japan, which has the toughest gun control in the world, had just TWO in 2006 and averages fewer than 20 a year. In Australia, they’ve not had a mass shooting since stringent new laws were brought in after 35 people were murdered in the country’s worst-ever mass shooting in Tasmania in 1996. Fewer guns equals less gun murder. This is not a ‘pinko liberal’ hypothesis. It’s a simple fact.

Re: First lawsuit filed over Sandy Hook massacre

We could go on all night with figures for and against .In Scotland we had a spate of knife crimes , murders , stabbings , slashings and done something about it by giving the police stop and search powers . It worked and brought down the figures .We have different laws compared to England .

" The justice secretary said violent crime was at a 30-year low, there were 44% fewer weapons on the streets since 2006-07 and recorded crimes and offences committed by young people were down by 32% since 2008-09. "

There will always be some people who just need locking up”

Labour justice spokesman Lewis Macdonald said increasing the punishment for knife crime built on the work of the previous Scottish government, adding: "There also needs to be reform of sentencing policy so that a prison sentence means what it says, and victims and communities can have some certainty about how long a prison sentence will last."

Re: First lawsuit filed over Sandy Hook massacre

I looked for more recent, kinda hush about it. I'm going with the assumption that if it were successful, they'd be bragging about it. Since the mid-seventies, the ACLU has been slowly chipping away at the available mental institutions, making it more and more difficult to prosecute a criminal, and making it more dangerous to be an honest, hard working individual. They stood and screamed at the fact that known pedophiles were placed on a list so that you know where they live, but were silent when a newspaper posted the names and addresses of LEGAL gun owners in Rockland and Westchester Counties in NY.

It is not just the gun rights that worry me. In NYC, they made it illegal to smoke in a privately owned bar or restaurant. I can see if the Health Department said that to allow smoking, that the ventilation had to be set up to accommodate it. But, no, they played nanny-state and outlawed it, many states (not cities but whole states) followed suit. NYC banned trans fats, since then, many states and local municipalities have been playing with it trying to figure out how they can work that without having the public lynching them. The point is that the government cures by taking away the rights of all rather than addressing the individual committing the crime.

Hate to sound so brutal, but public floggings and hangings are beginning to sound better every day.
