Shouldn't we give them a fighting chance? Police respond armed, they know it takes a gun to stop a nutcase killer. Who would like to arm the very first responders, the school administrators,
maybe even an ex military teacher or two?

Shouldn’t we give them a fighting chance?

Okay, say you put a law out to ban "high capacity" clips and such things. Well, you have made it illegal and most people that follow the laws will abide by it, correct? However, you still have the criminals who break the laws. Really ask yourself, what good would it do to place laws that criminals will break anyway?

It wouldn't. This idiot was hellbent on control and destroying the lives of others. Stop blaming guns, the NRA and responsible gun owners. The reason I own a gun is because our history shows that government and those in charge can not be trusted. Our founding fathers new this, thus the 2nd Amendment! Without it you can't protect the 1st Amendment. Look at what's going on in Arkansas with SWAT teams patrolling the streets and stopping citizens. Why isn't this a violation of undue process. Is that what we've become? This is disgraceful. My prayers go out to all of the families who lost someone in this senseless act.

Sending arms to violent drug cartels? Huh? This is starting to sound like a conspiracy theory, and I'm not addressing that. Insane. Your party is going extinct. They're out of style, out of touch, and will soon be out of work. The "emotional left wing" comments speaks volumes. It's called being an emotional human being. When 20 children are slaughtered at the hands of a destructive weapon that has no business being in the hands of Joe Blow with his gun permit, most human beings get emotional. Not emotional about an outdated right that was never even an individual right to begin with, but emotional about the common denominator in every massacre. Normal human beings don't compare semi-automatic rifes to car accidents, pest control, mustard gas, and "gun free" zone signs. Normal human beings react to the issue at hand, and do not go searching through all these wacky ideas to take the focus off the same instrument of death used in every massacre. It's unapproachable. The latest is, republicans in Virginia want to bring more guns into schools to prevent this from happening. Why don't we just have teachers go through boot camp as a mandatory requirement. We should have special forces train for a position at the Sandy Hook elementary school. Absolutely bat-crap insane. This is the expected response from the gun industry and you and the other minions on here, that the answer to all the gun violence that occurs is to have everybody armed. Do you know how insane that is? It's so insane, that when democratic lawmakers respond to it, all they do is repeat verbatim what they said, with no further thoughts on it. That's that. The majority of Americans don't own guns, won't own guns, don't want to own guns, and are pro-gun control. I've posted facts and references regarding entire nations that have went through successful gun bans, and the responses and rebuttles to my posts were essentially listing 3rd world countries, urban ghettos, and war zones that guns bans didn't work in. Gee, ya think? I wonder why that is. Anyway, Americans are sick of the nonsense, and something will be done, That something will be strict gun control and it's long overdue.

And for everything that has been banned, altered, law suits files and won over ...... not a single immortal has evolved. This country has what is known as the Supreme Law of the Land .... The Constitution. Every law maker and every law enforcer has pledged to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States which the President of the United States, Senators, and members of the Congress, military, and law enforcement have vowed to protect and defend, not to mention countless others. If you folks really wish to start taking apart the Constitution, start at the beginning, the 1st Amendment which gives you all the ability say what you want, and the news media to be as biased as they want and call it news. That way, we can all ban everything, and no one will hear about it. It may be a little crazy, but I noticed the other day a billboard that said 2,795 deaths on the Texas highways in 2012. 2,795 in just one state..... and nobody is trying to take my car away. Imagine that. 26 sensless deaths at the hands of one individual, and the nation wants to disarm.
