    Except to date not a single law has been passed that could be remotely considered "hostile to the 2nd amendment" by the Obama administration.

    So it's literally just purchases made out of fear.

    While I'm glad the boy and his sister are ok.

    Good shot and all that.

    I don't think this is something we should celebrate too much.

    I don't think we should aim to live in a society where 15 year old kids have to shoot people.

    And while there will always be bad guys and we have to be ready for them... we should not be overtly happy about kids having to shoot people.

    WTF?

    Nobody is happy that he had to shoot someone but we are happy that he assessed the situation and did shoot someone that was a threat.

    We'd all love to live in some peaceful utopia full of gumdrops and rainbows but we don't.

    Have you not been paying attention? Several people are talking about banning those too.

    lots of people on BOTH sides are talking crap they have no intention or power to do.

    Several people say 9-11 was an inside job.

    Get real, the kid didn't need an AR nor a 30 round mag to end the threat.

    Defense of the home isn't going anywhere, many need to take a deep breath and act like they have a pair.

    But he had an AR and got the job done. Furthermore, he didn't go on a rampage just because he had the means to do so. He did what needed to be done and nothing more....just like 99.99 percent of lawful gun owners would have.

    Had someone been armed at any of these mass killings, the shooter would have caused less mayhem, and may have been deterred altogether.

    Here is a question. Gun have been selling like hotcakes... NRA membership is growing quickly... criminals know it.

    Wait! This can not POSSIBLY be true!

    Many anti-gun folks have PROVEN that the AR15 is so horrifically deadly that one round will OBLITERATE anyone it hits.

    So it is IMPOSSIBLE that boy shot someone THREE TIMES with the unthinkably deadly AR15 and that person lived.


    Someone should contact that media outlet and explain that the story MUST be a fraud because one could be shot 3 times with an AR15 and still live.

    With that being said, I don't believe in assault weapons bans nor do I think they should be demonized as I believe that guns don't kill people, bullets fired out of those guns by people do.

    No, it is very unlikely that boy would have been hitting them with a handgun as obviously the AR15 - a long rifle - was not hitting them chest center. People who don't have guns think a gun is a gun is a gun. Most people could not hit a cow with a handgun at 15 feet in panick impulse shooting.

    The .223 is THE smallest rifle round other than .22.

    Apparently the view is that REALLY the two should have been shot with a semi automatic 12 gauge or semi auto 30.06. Shoot someone 3 times with one of those and that person is dead.

    The FACT is it is extremely unlike that boy could have done that with a handgun and obviously not a bolt action "hunting" rifle.

    A semi-auto pistol would also have worked.

    So says the person who knows nothing about shooting firearms.

    Impulse aiming is primarily instantly looking down the barrel - or just pointing it wildly - with no time for a novice or anyone but the most trained to sight up the "U" with the tag at the end of a 4 inch barrel. A handgun is so short that most people will be wildly off with a handgun. A rifle is a 2 foot long pointer - making impulse shooting at a short distance extremely easy.

    People who are not very familiar with handguns think its like the movies. You shoot a bad guy and they instantly fall dead. You point a gun in the direction you want and the bullets go exactly where you want them to go. Mostly people, given all the time they want, could not hit a can at 10 feet and a gallon pail at 20 with a handgun.

    It is the platitudes by anti-gun people completely detached from realities - and finding any statement or slogan to try to erase the countless examples of people defending themselves and their homes - that make discussion in real terms basically impossible.
