    There is no evidence. It's the same 'ol crap of "this world is going to hell in a handbasket" people like to throw out there because utlimately it makes them feel better about themselves and their generation. Everything was always better when they were a kid. Every generation says the same thing about the upcoming generation.

Thats THE fundemental difference between those who want to be able to defend themselves and those who wish to take that away. Wishing and praying and hopeing dont make the evil at your door go away, it is emboldened by fear and thoughtlessness. I used to say to my people before went on mission, "Keep your head and you keep your head. Lose your head and johny jihad gets a nice trophy." Its a crude saying but it still conves the point the allowing fear ,which is good and nessary emotion, to overwhelm and dominate us will in the end be our end. We must overcome it to have higher chances of survival in these type situtations.
    So, the reason Connecticut happened was peoples unwillingness to defend themselves?

    You know we're talking about guns and children, right?

    Last time I checked, both Chicago and DC are liberal cities with very strong gun restriction laws. Where do they rank on the highest rates of gun violence in the country again?

    So that's what happend on 9/11 huh? Let me que you in on reality. The people on those two flights had no idea they were flying into towers and were in fact told they were in a hostage situation. So they had no clue that there was a need to stand up. The ones that knew they were headed into a building stood up and that plan ended up in a field in Pennsyvlania.

    I'll say that it's every bit worth the warning I'm about to get for saying this. You are ****ing moron and our society is as brave as it's ever been and the only pussy I see here is you with this condscending full of **** hate America post.

    So, how exactly does that apply to this situation?

    Wrong!

    She was shot in Mexico, therefore he could not have fled to Mexico, since he was already there.

Another woman put herself in front of a door that didn't have a lock and was shot twice because of it. Another teacher pulled two students who were in the hallway with bullets going right by them into her room and locked the door. Another woman put students into a closet while the gunman was shouting "let me in". I think all of that counts as "fighting back" in some way.

    Now, if your only definition of "fighting back" is going up to a guy with guns, a mask and bullet proof vest and trying to disarm him, then I'm not sure, but I don't know why the **** you would dismiss people in a freaking elementary school of all places as being ****ing "sheep" if they didn't. I don't get that mad at all the pro and anti gun nuts calling for their respective policy changes, but what PISSES ME OFF every single time one of these shootings happen is when people criticize or in some way denigrate the people who were being attacked. These people were in a damn elementary school and they probably did their best to protect their children and themselves in an unbelievably extraordinary circumstance and then people like you have the gall (when you clearly haven't even done much research) to insinuate that if they didn't react the way you think they should, then they are "sheep" or they weren't "defending their charges". Jesus ****ing Christ.
    Well sir I didnt know for sure. Thats WHY I asked. If they were huddled in a corner then quite frankly my question is valid. If they did do these things you said then good. Whether you like it or not, their actions bad or good, NEED to be examined, so we may learn. Did they have protocals? If so where they implimented, and if so did they mitgate or succeed in someway or did they fail? I do have the gall to ask these questions, because they need to be asked. I dont know what happened in detail there at the school. No one does yet. I want to know HOW so many where killed, and where the intervention was during that time. If this school had no protcals at all especially considering past events, then there is a MAJOR problem. I dont expect people to be Rambo, but I do expect them do ALL they can to insure the survival of their charges. These circumstances while extrodinary are NOT unknown.

    Cut the BS. Are you claiming there were no adults in the school ? Six were killed. Are they now like "poof" in your world ?

    Its not that no one chose to "stand-up", as I do not want to confuse terms. Its that none could stand up in an effective way. CN has the fourth toughest gun laws in the country. And even if they were more lenient, I doubt they would allow the Principle, and Vice-Principle, to pack heat. Point being, no one "stood up" because they can't in CN.

    If perps knew that every school had a few pistol-packing folks within, we'd have less such mass murders. How many less ? I don't know. But as with fire prevention, the number of fatalities due to fires would go down.
