and Daniel Hernandez on gun control Clips From Last Night: Robert Zimmerman Jr. and Daniel Hernandez on gun control As much of the nation continues to debate the polarizing topic of guns, and firearm legislation, on Tuesday evening Morgan Tonight invited Robert Zimmerman Jr. back to the program to discuss the stand your ground law in relation to gun control. The brother of the man who shot Trayvon Martin, spoke out against any ban on firearms, noting that when it comes to gun laws, reality is criminals don care. restrictive gun laws, they don matter in the hands of a madman. said Zimmerman. mean, guns don fire themselves. And unfortunately I think what we need to ban is turning a blind eye on the mental health crisis that we have in this country. That what really needed to be banned. Also on the program, Daniel Hernandez, the former intern who helped to save the life of Gabby Giffords after she was shot at a constituent event in 2011 sat down with Piers Morgan and gave his insight on gun control and the gun culture in America. come from Arizona. It a place that has a shooting culture, said Hernandez. gone hunting with my dad. I had my own weapon when I was younger. But it a part of our culture that we don like to talk about and we don like to really take it head on. now, continued Hernandez. I hoping that with the new group that the congresswoman has started and with so many other groups like the Brady Campaign and the Mayors Against Illegal Guns working on this issue that we have more brave members of Congress and more brave senators saying, know what, I not going to keep passing the buck and I going to take this issue head on. the clips and listen to the interviews as Hernandez tells Morgan how if the shooter in Arizona had an AR 15 rifle and it didn jam he could have blasted everybody.

Americans are trained by the military to kill, when they develop a disorder where do they go? straight for their guns. Strict Canadian or British gun laws and Dorner 2 young kids would have a father and the other 3 would be alive. You have to start by changing the mind set of Americans to the point where they realize there are solutions to problems other than with a fire arm. Until you change the idiotic mind set of LaPierre and the NRA and the hopeless statements that Robert Zimmerman Jr. came up with and you ! the daily slaughter of American citizens will continue. February 17, 2013 at 1:54 pm are you completely one minded?? sure there are in some cases other options than a firearm, but you wouldnt be saying there are other options for every scenario if you came face to face with an individual coming at you with a knife, or an individual that is killing you with their bare hands. what would you do then? defend your self, although not all scenarios would require the use of a firearm, I assure you there are situations where one is needed, that is what your NRA people and individuals are fighting for, the right to bear arms. is better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have one there is no logical way you can dispute that quote. February 21, 2013 at 8:53 pm Report abuse Strong words, but you're still missing something. Um let me think The fact that all the recent mass shootings all involved mentally ill people, now am I saying that all mentally ill people are evil? No, but what is (evil) is the fact that there has been almost no talk at all about helping those who are mentally ill. The News and Media is making it seem as if all gun owners are straight from Hell. This is supposed to be a debate, but how is that when you're only hearing one side. If anything the Government should be talking about the mental health of people. By the way depression has risen in freighting numbers, which means there are more people willing to either kill themselves or look for attention negatively. This negative attention could be cutting their wrist, displaying publicly their hate for a certain person or a group of people, isolating myself from family /friends for days or months, and simply just feeling sorry for themselves. Also young people are the one's doing most of these killings. I would most likely suggest that parents should and always be held accountable. It is the job/duty as parents to make sure their children understand the law and how to appropriately behave in society. There's too many parents who let their kids do whatever they want, parents need to set more rules and boundaries. Parents are NOT their kid's friend; they are the guardians of their child. I'm not saying that parents can't be friendly to their children; I'm saying there's a limit to how much the parent should allow their child to do. Also parents shouldn't be worried that their kid will hate them just think of it this way, it'll be better that you punish them instead of the law doing it for you. Parents are forgiving the law isn't.

Now what do you do ? How do you readjust to civilization ? any answers ?. Another thing CONTROL isn the answer, Think about this How many Law Enforcement Officers are on the job in any City or Town at any given time and how many people live in each city or town, Then multiply the number it amounts to about 1 officer per 8 people depending on the city and about 1 officer per 250 people depending on the town. So instead of GUN CONTROL and cutting budgets work on the solution ?

And when the criminals entered his bedroom, he opened fire, killing one of the suspects and sending the rest fleeing, KLAS TV reports.
and surprise surprise Posh is leading the way Her solo career may not have been first class, but when it comes to fashion, there's no denying Victoria Beckham gives it her all. You can be sure that if there's a new trend to be rocked, even if she doesn't bag it before anyone else does, she'll wear it so ostentatiously and so faithfully that anyone who follows suit will seem to be stealing her style. And the latest trend to get the treatment? Shoulder pads. Shoulder volume cropped up all over the Autumn/Winter 2009 catwalks, from strong, angular pads, to rounded puff shoulders and extreme futuristic shapes. Call it a return to the battlefield workwear of the Eighties, armour for the credit crunch or simply an ingenious way of looking thinner by producing the effect of jutting bony shoulders and a tiny waist (and this latter reason is most likely), the bold shoulder is back. Back to the 80s: Estelle (left) brings a touch of dynasty to the Brits, while Rihanna raises eyebrows with the 'chicken fillet' shoulder pads in her 1,330 Balmain top Nowhere did the shoulder pad make such a statement as at Balmain, French couture house and venue for Victoria's recent shoulder pad related spending splurges. They had delicate blouses with sharp, jutting shoulders; blazers and leather jackets with extreme built in pads. Victoria first wore the 4,050 Balmain lambskin military leather jacket last week to watch husband David play at Wembley, then gave the jacket another outing today in Milan where, never one to shy away from top to toe designer labels, she paired the jacket with 1,000 Balmain jeans and Christian Louboutin shoes. Singer Rihanna has also been snapped wearing the same nipped in blazer with the look at me shoulders, as well as a 1,330 white lace Balmain top with exaggerated shoulders built in but you get the feeling that tenacious Posh plans to wear her shoulder pads relentlessly until Rihanna surrenders. It's not the first time Victoria has pumped up the volume in her jackets. Last October at a launch for her own DvB range, she matched her own jeans with a sharp shouldered black blazer, and ever since has been determined to claim her crown as the shoulder pad Queen.
