    Do we now need armed security placed in strategic places along the roads throughout the nation?

    No we need to ban cars and trucks or roads because taking things away from people who do nothing wrong makes the most sense

    This is sad, my heart goes out to the victims.


    Shall we expect another NRA plan for this type of shooting by next Friday? For every acre of public space, does the NRA purpose we assign 1 police officer or retired military armed?

    Before we go all hogwild here, could this be related to the date and Mayan prediction hammered upon for the last year by the media?

    OK. What's your plans if we all started to use horse and buggies and they shot out of those.

    Install guns on cars, guns on buildings, guns on trees with cameras.. Then put guns on the guns so that the guns can protect themselves from other guns.. Then, you need to have guns pointed at those guns to protect themselves from themselves and other guns guns.

    Turn the horse into hamburgers and sell it to the liberals for a profit

    You cannot defend against every conceivable bad thing that bad people do, and certainly punishing those who are not bad people instead of subsidizing bad behavior may not be a good starting point.

    There is actually an irony here. This mass shooting happened at the same time the NRA was holding their press conference in which they called for armed personnel in every school.

    It certainly would have been harder to kill people in cars with knives though.
