You can practically set you're watch by it. A crazed gunman, mentally unstable or just your average run of the mill antisocial piece of s*it, shoots up a mall, school or movie theatre. It's only a matter of hours or days before every left-wing nut with a microphone is calling for banning assault weapons.
So it is with Democrat Senator's Mark Warner and Joe Manchin who are calling for exactly that. This is political opportunism at its very worst.
Never mind the fact that the gunman may or may not have even used a so-called assault weapon. In the case of the shooter in Connecticut, the guy used a pistol. That doesn't matter though. The fact that he left an assault weapon in his vehicle is reason enough for their knee-jerk reaction to every one of these kinds of attacks. It's the weapon that's at fault, not the gunman. We are supposed to try to understand the reasons behind why this person would commit such a heinous act.
Here's the reason. Are you ready for it? Because they're evil bastards. You can call it mentally unstable. Probably true. You can blame it on a less than satisfactory childhood. LOTS of people have bad childhoods. But, they don't go out and shoot up an elementary school. Many of them probably have access to weapons. But at some level, they have a religious or moral belief that prevents them from doing something like that. In fact, the thought doesn't even enter their minds.
For the individuals who do this type of thing have lost their soul, and probably a long time before they committed the act. But we as a society are now told that religion and all of its strict rules and "commandments" are so passe'. It's all a bunch of ancient superstition meant to control people. I mean, who believes in "Thou shall not murder", or"Honor thy mother and father". How about "Do not covet", for all of you who are pissed off at those who are wealthy, and want the government to redistribute some of their stuff to you? As we allow schools and the government to teach our children that there is no abberant behavior, sexual deviancy, and that those who are backwards enough to believe in a power greater than ourselves (some of us call him GOD) are somehow intolerant, and bigots. I give you 20 dead elementary school children, and eight dead adults.
It wasn't the gun that did it. It was the soulless man who valued neither his, nor anyone else's life.

Connecticut school shooting: two US Senators call for assault weapons ban
Two US Senators became the first of America's pro-gun advocates to break ranks on Monday night as they called for a ban on assault weapons in the wake of the Sandy Hook elementary school shootings.
By Peter Foster, Washington7:49PM GMT 17 Dec 2012
The two Senators – both Democrats but with "A" ratings and previous endorsements from the powerful National Rifle Association gun lobby group – both spoke out to argue publicly that the death of 20 Year 2 children was a "game-changing" moment for America's divisive gun debate.
