Angry ...and the school shootings continue....

...fortunately, this time nobody got hurt because the gun jammed. 13-year old. Minnesota. What I found fascinating / scary is the following quote:
Quote:
...the gun belonged to the boy's parents. Farmer said it is not uncommon for people in the area to own assault weapons. <small><a href="http://www.forbes.com/entrepreneurs/feeds/ap/2006/10/09/ap3077504.html">SOURCE</a>
Can someone please explain to me ('cause I'm just another addle-brained leftist type) why the #$%^& anybody needs to own an <b>assault weapon</b>?

The answer is obvious, no Hummer is complete without one.

Assault vehicles, assault weapons, rush hour traffic, you get the idea.

Quick, start another gun registry. That'll stop these idiots. Worked for us didn't it?

Hmmm, perhaps to help world trade...or prop up Walmart.

The kid used this piece of junk:

A Norinco Mak-90


Made by your commie, Chinese, leftist friends.

The company...Norinco.

Learn all about them, HERE. A full smorgasbord of goodies to wreak havoc.

Read what Wikipedia has to say about them, HERE. Like how they illegally import fully automatic firearms into the US.

Self restraint and common sense could help... but that would be too easy.

but the gun lobby is too powerful
