    that's a failure of training not a failure of gun laws.

    Which is why we encourage well-informed and safe gun ownership, and the use of safes and such to secure guns not in one's immediate possession.



    Of course, you can't make anything proof against determined intent to harm... and he could have just as easily used a homemade bomb or a sword bought on Ebay and killed about as many.

    We live in a crazy world, with crazy people and crazy weapons and it's crazy times and little children have to die and suffer...and for what? The Second Amendment.

    It's time to amend the amendment in a reasonable and thoughtful way.

    We already know the answer, since the school was a "gun free zone". The irony of the failure of that edict to protect the children is beyond explanation... words on paper are no shield against determined evil.

    I was not talking about "gun laws".

    My comment was more about the general availability of guns in this country.

    The chance of homicide rises dramatically when guns are around.

    And irrelevant to the point.
    MY posession/ownership causes no harm; MY posession/ownership places no on in clear, present and immediate danger.
    As such, there's no constitutionally sound argument for the restriction of MY possession/ownership as right are lmited only when an exercise falls under one of those classifications.

    No, it isn't. It is time to let emotions cool so that reason can prevail once the hysteria winds down.

    I suspect that he was ordering them in her name, at least the AR15, if that came from her house. I have trouble believing a kindergarten teacher in CT would just happen to have one of those things.
