I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Nothing is beyond refute. However, I do agree that more gun control is probably not going to solve anything. Likewise, I don't think more guns are going to solve anything. Both solutions are baseless and stupid.Gun Control doesn't work. The Justice Department under Clinton commissioned the University of PA to do a study. The conclusion is beyond refute.
And yet that is what you are doing. You want to increase POLICE presence in schools across the country, when it has been found that does little to increase overall security and generally leads to abuses of power.Guns are just a scapegoat for emotional reactionaries who want to take away Individual Rights. It's a mob tactic.
Columbine High School had a Resource Officer. How much did that help?
You are emotionally reacting. Cool down and recognize that you need to THINK through these decisions instead of acting in reaction. Otherwise you are no better than those you believe are trying to take away your gun rights.
I suggest you study the concept of "fire prevention". It does not stop every fire. Just as an armed security entity inside each school (Columbine was not on the inside ... look it up), fire prevention does not stop every fire. But the results are tangible when one compares before and after numbers.

Both sides make me sick.
One rushes to blame guns and now the NRA rushes to ****ing blame video games and movies.
Its **** like this that makes it clear that while I don't agree with most of those fighting the battle of "gun control", I don't buy that the NRA is some protectors of the constitution. They're no different than the other side...they just give a crap about the rights that suit them politically.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
