    Since fixing all those broken parents is not possible, you might want to come up with a solution that actually protects our children. Even the NRA is suggesting trained national guardsmen, cops, and high tech metal detection systems in every school in America. While I am not interested in giving up my firearms, I would be happy to have more stringent weapons ownership requirements, better communication between mental health systems and the BATFE, and would love to see National Guardsmen and high tech weapons detection systems in every school at taxpayer expense. Holding parents responsible IS NOT going to bring back our innocent babies that did nothing wrong and were shot in cold blood.

    Ah yes - the gun lobby dream of 300 million people armed to the teeth ready and willing to engage in battle at the drop of a hat anytime, anyplace and anywhere.

    Kneejerk laws and reactions are foolish. Guardsmen and High Tech Weapons systems would probably NOT be very effective when the school shooting happened in the parking lot. Do you then take steps to secure every park, mall, and bus stop? Additionally...if the concern is mass shootings we are talking about an event that happens on average less than 2 times a year over the last 30 years (though school shootings and stabbings are relatively commonplace in inner city schools across the country).

    Rather than armed National Guardsman, perhaps the laws should be changed to allow teachers to be armed (sounds like the this teacher, a non-active duty Marine, would have been more than capable of handling himself).

    Ah yes, of course, the passionate destroyer of basic 2A constitutional rights; ready to deploy immediately upon the release of any drop of blood, regardless of actual cause; quick to discount personal responsibility of armed and unarmed maniacs; heartily ignoring current laws and the inability of the justice system to actually identify, catch and sentence criminals; emotionally engaging at a moments notice and with total disregard of the ability of law-abiding American citizens to protect their homes and families; never wasting the gift of a tragedy to further his personal agenda with complete disregard towards others; mightily sucking on the political teat of his handlers at the expense of common sense.

    That is a rather silly and strained response to what I said. You seem terrified of honest people being armed

    Excellent summary.

    rejected as being contrary to known reality. You apparently don't know much about police matters either. Convenience store night shift workers and cab drivers are more dangerous professions in terms of being confronted by armed robbers than cops. Most cops never draw their weapons for self defense. But you are apparently afraid to tell us why honest citizens should be limited to 10-7-5 rounds when criminals and cops are not. It is because you cannot make a sound argument for that nonsense

    Re: School shooting this morning . . .

    I managed to slightly piss off my wife on the way to work by mentioning the ex-Marine teacher should have been CC..
    Her retort was "give me a break, shoot a kid in front of kids".
    My counter was "yes, I would prefer to see the teacher draw and drop the student who is firing a gun at students"..
