What in Munroe's background/resume' makes him an expert on such an issue?I agree, I think he is trying to stick his finger in the eye of a political foe(s). Welcome to Mahoning County Penn National.. ,part of me would like to see them extend a middle finger and walk away.

Let me tell you why I don't think the availabilty of firearms is the main problem..When I was in high school in the '60's,guns were even more readily available. You could even get a rifle by mail order (remember Oswald?) I remember many mornings before class walking into the school with my friends, each of us carrying a .22 rifle to go practice in the school's indoor rifle range in the basement. There was never any trouble because the culture then was one of respect for law and order and fellow citizens. The kind of behavior that results in these heinous killings is learned... Kids become what they see..Walk through the video game isle of BestBuy, look at the movie trailers...WE CREATE THESE MONSTERS.. Wake up people!

Bottom Line... the 2nd ammendment was meant to be the "reset" button on the Constitution.

NEWS FLASH! This has occurred over the last 10 years. The evil Kasich has been in office for 2 years. "State records show the number of full-time teachers in public schools fell by nearly 6 percent over a decade ..."

People don't like to hear it, but the truth is that the 2nd ammendment was intended to be the "RESET" button on the Constitution

The functionality of a weapon is what kills. These "Assault Weapons" that consumers buy are only "Assault STYLE Weapons" They are semi-automatic which simply means they shoot one round everytime you pull the trigger. They are made to resemble the real full auto military issue. They are for basement video game players who can't live with out what they see in those games. Yes, they have large capacity magazines. So, lets ban the large capacity magazines, since we MUST DO SOMETHING! I suppose we are to believe the Connecticut shooter would not have gone to shoot up the school if his magazine were limited to, say 6 rounds? This limitation would really stop someone like this? Take a walk through the aisles of Best Buy and look at the video games on display. I did.. I walked away shaking my head. In the end, the law abiding citizen will take it in the shorts,,we always do.

Simple things that could be done to increase revenue and reduce spending. Elinimate Department of Energy,,Lots of $$$ - doesn't produce one BTU of energy. Why do earners stop paying into Social Security when their gross earnings exceed $74,000? Thats stupid! The money raised from "making the rich pay their fair share" must make a lot of people feel good. Bottom line is it is a lot like standing at the rim of the Grand Canyon and trying to fill it back up with a shovel.

The "Affordable Care ACT" (aka ObamaCare) has come home to roost for me. I work for a small business in Mahoning County (fewer than 30 employees). Over the years we had a good health care benefit which came to incorporate copays etc. Over the years, those co-pays were adjusted up. Now it has it home to roost.. Our health benefit now pays NOTHING until individuals are out of pocket $3,500 (single) or $7,000 (family), I have never consumed $3,500 worth of health services in any year of my 64 years. So, unless I get hit buy a bus or are hospitalized, I essentially have no health insurance. I guess my only option is to hold on 'til I reach medicare.I thought this was supposed to bring down insurance premiums. I don't think so.
