Ban Guns (repeal the second amendment)
Allow for the wider use of guns for self protection
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
First one needs to recognize that there is a problem such as for instance overweight. I ask how much their obese son weighs they say 20kg. How tall he is, he is 1m. Under such data the BMI formula shows that the child is not overweight but is athletic. Obviously they've checked the formula and agreed about providing consistent answers ahead of me asking them. While I was trying to help them by providing suggestions what they should do to their kid.
Anyway, parental training is a good opinion. Not that it was not tried though. First, usually concerned parents that have more time attend the courses voluntarily anyway, and they by that much are better parents than overworked neglecting parents. Secondly, what happens if they fail the course?
There are a couple people I grew up with and went to school with who have taken an innocent life - and none of them were brought up being told by their parents to murder the innocent. Nonetheless, the parents were part of the problem in each instance. Do you think that growing up with parents who are violent towards each other would have some effect on their children? The point is that people are some combination of nature and nurture and - in my opinion - the rhetoric and media people are being exposed to is making the Lanza's and Holmes' of the world more likely to hit that point where they actually do what they do. It's not the only cause, but it is a contributing factor. Turn on the news - death, death, death, death, death. Listen to MSNBC or Fox News - they're killing America, they hate America, this is the end, we can't turn back, they want to take your guns away, they want to take your health care away, they hate poor people, they hate rich people. Are you affected by it? I am, how could I not be? How can any of us claim that we aren't affected by it?
You don't have to agree with me but you shouldn't be in denial about it.
A working class hero is something to be
The absolute stupidity of every have guns make this world safer argument is just <lack of words>
It's appalling and disgusting.
What arm the kids with guns?
Even if the staff was armed with guns the killer could easily kill them before they have time to react.
One learns more by listening than talking.
