Paris-Style Attack – Would it have been Deadlier in the U.S.?

Emily Miller and Richard Fowler engage in a spirited discussion over the effects of concealed-carry laws deterring smaller terrorist attacks in the U.S.

    Can this dumbass tell me where I can readily purchase a fully-automatic
    AK-47 like the kind used by those islamic terrorists in France? Don’t they have very tight gun control in France?

    • Clearanceman2 .

      That’s pat of the reason for blurring the line between a semi auto and full auto by calling semi auto military style rifles assault rifles. Obviously, to legally get full auto is a six month back ground check and a $300 yearly fee. In france, you can’t have them at all legally. And yet, they had them. Yes they did. Because criminals don’t follow the law.

        There is no annual fee in the US for an NFA weapon…

    There was no armed guard at Sandyhook, the shooter murdered to get the legally purchased firearms he used. Weapons purchased under CT’s already strict laws. Emily knocked out of the park again. Fowler just wanted to trumpet the same tired and failing points he always does.

    Magaxine capacity limits don’t make a difference when the shooter has all the time in the world to shoot up a gun free zone. Background checks have not stopped criminals from getting guns.

    Would this event have gone down differently in the US, yes. For one our police are armed and could have potentially stopped the event rather than being executed. As most news agencies are very liberal it most likely would not have change the outcome inside as nobody would have had a weapon, but the encounter with the police would have been very different.

    Mr. Fowler lies. No armed response at Sandy Hook. Weapon purchased in CT 100% legally and then stolen (100% illegally) by shooter. He gives his position away when he says the “right people” need more guns and that guns must be taken off the street. Mr. Fowler is willfully ignorant of and clearly does not believe in the Second Amendment.

    THERE WAS NO SECURITY AT SANDY HOOK YOU MORON!!! What an uninformed jackwagon. Dude, if you are going to debate, at least know the issues. Sad this guy was given airtime, back to school fool!

    You best bring yours, if you want to have mine…

    “This is where I disagree, fundamentally, with Emily, is that this idea that, you know, having guns will stop things, crimes from happening. Look at Sandy Hook, the security guard HAD a gun.”

    What security guard? This is the first time that I’ve ever heard anyone claiming that Sandy Hook had an armed guard, and I found nothing online indicating that there was one.

    It is clear that this radio guy “Richard” is a liberal idiot. He NEVER answered the question. He went all around the issue and used ALL the old liberal idiot talking points t support his idea of gun control. HE IGNORED the fact that ALL the laws he said were needed are on the books. He ignored the fact that Lanza STOLE the guns he used from his mother after shooting HER. There WAS NOT a security guard at Sandy Hook (He made that up I guess). So to answer the question “Richard” couldn’t seem to grasp, “Would a terror attack like the one in Paris be worse if it happened in the US?” The Liberal babbling idiots say yes, it would. I must agree, IT MOST CERTAINLY WOULD BE WORSE FOR THE TERRORIST. Because numerous concealed carriers, armed home owners, AND the police are armed and would fill them full of holes. I saw the cell phone video of the French Policeman kill on the sidewalk. If it had been me in that window, I would have both those terrorist targeted with several of my firearms. I would have emptied several magazine on them from that window. Their car would have hundreds of holes in it, They would never have been able to exit the vehicle and walk up on that policeman and shoot him again without being shot by ME! “Richard” is an idiot plain and simple.

    didn’t he kill his mother and steal her guns…. Isn’t it against the law to murder someone? Isn’t it against the law to steal from people? All of those laws didn’t stop him from doing so and then shooting up a school.

  • Brad Wags

    Wow, that guys is ignorant beyond words.

  • Daniel

    From the look of things, Richard Fowler knows more about makeup and lipstick, than gun facts.

  • henry bowman

    oh boy, this guy interrupts, throw “point bomb” after point bomb and doesn’t allow a response to burn up the time.
    geeezzzz

  • KaiserA

    Who are the “right” people? Don’t just slam him because he is on the democrat (not liberal) side of gun control. This individual seems to not see the bigger picture.

  • LogicBob

    What an idiot. There was no security guard at Sandy Hook, let alone one with a gun.
