    Okay. I've given you plenty of opportunity to post a cogent response, but evidently it's not in the realm of your abilities.

    As I've ended up saying to you and your ilk many times before:

    You are dismissed.

    My Tommy is telling me that in Chicago, at one particular school we have family at, they have over a dozen armed security guards and two full-time police officers. (This school is in a dangerous area...joke, because this one certainly wasn't.) They also have metal detectors. Oh! And each classroom is locked down.

    That's certainly a good start -- the classroom lock-down part. With doors that, you know, can actually keep people out. Emergency buttons in every classroom going right to the police department . . . these things have got to be looked at -- and things have got to change.

    Listen buddy, I've witnessed the murder of an innocent bystander who was the 22 year old mother of two. At least 3 lives were ruined and I can't get the image of a woman being shot in the face out of my mind because of your precious right to own a tool of destruction so you can feel 'safe' or 'tough' or whatever it does for you.

    Besides my point is that everyone who has a gun will kill someone because they wanted to when they bought the infernal thing. Admit it you want to kill someone you fantasize about it all the time. You're probably wishing you could shoot me and everybody else that doesn't agree with you right?
    So...you blame the gun for that event and not the perpetrator?

    Well, I see it as a massively unanswered question. It's obvious the real reason that this stuff happens is because crazy people are crazy and etc. and we could easily go forth and debate cultural morality and the effects of religion and education and so on. However, which is more realistic and immediately effective? Somehow curbing culture or doing something to curb access to guns for crazy people?

    There is nothing pre-emptive about speaking truth in response to the liberals who took even less time to start crying about guns being the root of all evil.

    Gun control is anti-liberal. Please stop swallowing infiltrators and mainstream medias version of liberalism. America was founded upon liberalism and thus we have the 2nd amendment.

    You could still kill aiming for the legs. And I don't believe you, if you hope to never kill someone then why do you have a gun? Protection? From what? Someone else with a gun? good luck with that.

    You're allowing your emotions to get the better of you. Your past few posts haven't been very logical.

    There are many good, normal gun owners out there. They don't spend their days thinking of how they want to use their weapons. The Hollywood portrayal of gun owners is far from accurate.
