What this shooting did is it showed how weak the gun laws are in this country. And the fact that this person apparently did everything legal until he pulled the trigger just shows how weak those gun laws are.

Will Tucson Tragedy Shift Gun Control Debate?
Imagine having that criteria applied to other things:
- The slanderer did everything legal right up to the point where she opened his mouth.
- The assaulter did everything legal right up to the point where he struck his victim.
- The speeder did everything legal right up to the point where she exceeded the speed limit.
- The shoplifter did everything legal right up to the point where he walked out the door without paying for it.
The very name of “The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence” tells you all you need to know to oppose them. They want to prevent “gun violence”. If they wanted to prevent slander or libel they would rightly be seen as wanting to infringe upon free speech. The same is true of their advocating for more restrictions on firearms. Their goal is, clearly, the infringement of the specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms, most people now recognize it, and the above quote shows they don’t even try to hide it.—Joe]
