    If it wouldn't also hurt me, I would wish for you to have your way and that the second amendment means front loading muskets, or whatever interpretation you want it to mean...

    As for the question, it was clear...Here, I'll try again...

    Statement portion:

    I don't think that teachers should own guns.

    Question portion:

    Will you as a teacher set the example, and relinquish any guns you may own, and formally give up the right to own any in the future?
    That's just it, objective and subjective are not opinions.

    I guns is a general term. I won't say any lawful citizen can't own a gun. I will accept that they can restrict them from having them at school, no automatics or semi automatics and such. So, in terms of limitations, I accept for teachers the same limitations as everyone else.

    Your question still doesn't make sense to me. Where ave I argued banning all guns? Where is that been proposed and face a real vote?

    I think you can have muskets. Hunting rides, handguns for protection. The point is we have established weapons can be restricted. What we need more clarification on is which ones and by whom (there may be a state issue involved).

    What kind of guns can the criminals have in your mind?

    Oh wait, they won't give up any Guns and will use anything they can get their hands on!

    Why do you want to help criminals have an easier time??

    You do know the average police response is average 9-15 minutes?

    So, honestly, why do you prefer the criminals have the advantage over their victims??

    Yes, criminals break laws. But we do still have laws and restrictions all the same. And I simply don't believe owning semiautomatics save you from criminals. I think is you pull back on the emotion a little bit you'll realize you can still own a weapon, and that with or without one being smart will always be more important.

    Exactly what do you think a semi-automatic is?

    I know exactly what it is. And, no I don't think it is an automatic. You have a round shot each time you pull the trigger. Cre you expecting a fire fight?

    That comment makes no sense. Nor does this one...

    Are you claiming nobody needs more than a single shot firearm to protect themselves from the criminal element?

    Seems as though you may be speaking of your own posting here...

    I guns is a general term.
    Good grief man, what does this sentence mean? I guns? what is that?

    I won't say any lawful citizen can't own a gun.
    Good, because although you can voice that opinion if you wish, ownership of a gun is a right, and not up to you to decide.

    I will accept that they can restrict them from having them at school, no automatics or semi automatics and such.
    The places that these tragedies occurred were already "gun free zones".... so the "restrictions" were already in place. Did it prevent the tragedy?

    I accept for teachers the same limitations as everyone else.
    So the answer is "no"..... You wouldn't set the example, but you would tell others what they should do....

    Your question still doesn't make sense to me. Where ave I argued banning all guns? Where is that been proposed and face a real vote?
    You've already answered weather you realize it or not....
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Rarely if ever. And we don't shoot them very often. Stats show that. Nor does it take too longer to chamber another one. Do absent a firefight, not really needed.
