    The idea that anyone can buy a gun, anytime is a sad, sad prospect. For example, if someone hates you, and is a in a mental institute, he can get a gun, shoot and kill you, and he'll just go back to the crazy place. That concept, that anyone, including crazies and convicts can buy guns is a horrid concept. That is what you people want when you say no regulation. You'll only care about that when a convict shoots up a bus of people with an M-16, and one of your family members is dead.

    Just because you don't agree with a point doesn't make the point absurd. I was referring to the quote (below)

    That is your opinion.

    I disagree. I would think the infantry level weapons could be used to secure access to the more powerful weapons. After all, there are military bases around.

    Where did I suggest that?

    I was thinking more along the lines of handguns, preferably in a shoulder holster to reduce or eliminate the effect such would have on the students.

    That's your opinion & you have a right to be wrong. (which you are now exercising)

    I like to add a little humorous exaggeration to make my point. (not everything is devoid of humor. You should try it sometime.)

    I would suggest that a teacher carrying an M-60 around would be considered WELL armed!
    (obvious exaggeration to lighten the topic a bit but quite accurate as well)
