    Largely, yes. if the military couldn't take them, which is unlikely, and we don't have access to any of their weapons, well, it would not be pretty. I suppose we could be Palestine, but I'd rather have a better plan.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    well since Florida has the death penalty and short of breaking someone on the wheel or impaling them on a stake, the DP is the most severe deterrent we have but if a guy plans on killing himself the only way to stop him from killing others is to kill him first

    let me guess, the Headmistress didn't have a weapon

    if you hunt a murderer down, and shoot him in the head, you too are now a murderer.

    only police have the right & authority to apprehend criminal suspects.

    the ONLY legal way one can apprehend a criminal suspect, is if you yourself actually witness the crime taking place.

    then you can detain him..and even kill him if its necessary to save lives.
