Put Guns, Video Games and Mental Health on the table
‘‘Put guns on the table. Also, put video games on the table. Put mental health on the table,’’ Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., said last week. Other prominent Republicans echoed him in calling for a sweeping review of how to prevent tragedies like the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. Among those open to a re-evaluation of the nation’s gun policies were Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

‘‘You’ve got to take all these things into consideration,’’ Grassley said.

And yet, the head of the National Rifle Association, silent for a week after the Newtown shootings, has proposed staffing schools with armed police, making clear the NRA, which tends to support the GOP, will continue pushing for fewer gun restrictions, not more.

Clearly the staffing the schools with armed police will be set up to make us feel more secure - yet we know better. NWO is around the corner

We didn't have the kind of mass shootings today as we did decades ago, but the games kids play and the guns haven't changed. It's the people.




"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Re: Put Guns, Video Games and Mental Health on the table
The U.S. Congress must examine what can be done to respond to the Connecticut school shooting, including possibly new legislation, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Monday.

Reid told the Senate he agreed with President Barack Obama that no one law could erase evil, but added "we need to accept the reality that we are not doing enough to protect our citizens."

The remarks were significant coming from Reid, a Democrat from Nevada who during Obama's first term opposed reviving a ban on assault weapons.

Reid, speaking on the Senate floor, did not mention specific potential reforms.

"In the coming days and weeks we'll engage in a meaningful conversation and thoughtful debate about how to change laws and culture that allow this violence to continue to grow," Reid said. He said "every idea should be on the table" as lawmakers discuss how to keep America's children safe.

Wow cool gun back then for kids! I remember right be4 Y2K, my son was in 6th grade and traded a Kobe Bryant basketball card for a BB hand gun ..... when he told me he got it for Y2K to protect us, I freaked out (I worked at a nearby middle school at that time).
I called his principle and he got suspended for 3 days and had to write an essay on the dangers of gun etc... fast forward to 2 weeks ago the same son (age 24) says we need to buy a gun now .... LOL

I'm not sure what they can do with regard to video games without having issues with the first amendment.

But we need a scapegoat for piss-poor-parenting.
Video games and TV are easy targets since we stick our kids in front of them from infancy in place of social interaction.
