    Exactly. That's what broke my heart, actually. They had enough instinct to play dead. He killed them anyway.

    When have Americans ever put themselves in front a manics gun and martyr themselves so others could live??? It didn't happen in Columbine, VTECH, etc. It's never happened. The only time I can think of it happening is on an individual basis, when the killer points a gun right at somebody else and it's not a shooting spree. I know I'd attack them with my bare fists in that moment, but I wouldn't run out of a classroom and down the hall and try to assault a shooter because I thought I'd save somebody else.

    Yes maam...I am. I am expecting kids to be taught to defend themselves. I get tired of the VA Tech style rampage where 30+ 'kids' die hiding under their desk waiting to be killed. 94 people are dead...who knows how many are wounded. I shot...maybe two shots...its personal...you can let it be someone elses business. 10, 20, 30...you'd best be prepared for the possibility you are next. I agree that the basic instinct is to survive. WHen you have a gunman killing people at random, your odds of being one of those dead people are pretty good.

    Thats kinda my point. Its time to change the roll over and die mentality. The Arizona shooter was charged at the first opportunity. It could have been much much worse. Thankfully it was not.

    People get arrested for shooting robbers who break into their homes in England. Here in america we see that as a good thing-if my neighbor blows away some home invader that means my home is less likely to be robbed
    But America still has shooting sprees occurring like this too... so it doesn't appear any law or regulation is going to prevent it from occurring. I don't know why some you think this is the time to attack countries like Norway when America has had way more shooting sprees than them anyway. Our laws and regulations don't appear to be any better in terms of shooting sprees.

    I know it is sometimes easier said than done and one can't feel too matched in your bathing suit against an armed assailant.

    I truly like to believe that anyone who pulls a gun out on a passenger airplane in America is going to trigger a mass charge on him by passengers.
    I'd be worried that that kind of charge might be more invigorating and entertaining for a shooter like him than anything else...

    What about those Leftist gun totin' psychos? The Red Brigade? The Baider-Meinhoff gang? Let's not forget the attacks by Muslims in Europe over the past decade.

    Europe has plenty of psychos.

The resins are individual to each manufacture and each explosive, so it's easier to prove an individual did purchase the explosives and worked with them in their home or garage. In America there is no laws requiring any company to include such resins and compounds in the manufacturing process. I think these are all relevant points that should be discussed. We all just want to be safer, having a discussion about safety shouldn't be considered a taboo and shut down.
    that is because the gun banners also wanted to pass that law and with it a law that would make it a felony to own any ammunition that did not have that tracing material meaning all of us who have stores of ammunition would either have to destroy it or risk a felony while criminals who can import cocaine and steal stuff would steal untraceable ammo or smuggle in stuff that isn't subject to such a moronic requirement
