how ignorant must you be to think that that sort of statement would help your cause?
Why not? If the leftists allowed two secretly armed & qualifed staff members in the school, we might not be having this conversation today.

Actually,it cast the right in a bad light as defenders of all types of guns for all people, at all times, in all places.
LOL! When was the last time you heard of a conservative guerrilla, or a right wing rebel? Here's how it works: People who change things are progressive - even if it takes violence (the founding fathers, for one example), then after some time the new establishment petrifies and starts romanticizing "the good old days" that never existed and blames the left for every bump and aberration. The right will always maintain that the woes and wrongs are none of their doing, and that the successes of new ideas that they absolutely would have opposed are their greatest achievements.

Clearly the guns they bought and sold were for hunting, target use and personal protection. They were just selling out of their private collection. As any good NRA spokesman would point out, many gun owners would cherish the ability to have 647 firearms, but few can afford to own them all at one time.
I highly doubt that the people who deal in guns like this give a damn what a person does with it. It's all about the money. And, they were cops! Cops were also busted in Texas selling drugs and taking money from the drug dealers.

Unless we are ready to be a nation of vegetarians, "reasonable" hunting weapons should not be banned. It is no more ethically defensible to let someone kill an animal for us than killing the animal ourselves. There are legitimate arguments on both sides regarding the humanity in the way in which the animal is killed but that's a debate for another time.
That being said, the weapon may be a bow, guns aren't necessary to hunt.
And, the argument regarding the 2nd Amendment provision to arm a militia to protect us from our government is moot. We might as well use rocks against the weapons that the government arsenal has in it.
I'd be much happier in a world without guns, ban them all.
Start by turning in yours, Pops. We cant have mental-defective, doddering old fools running around armed....

People have been killing people since the beginning, whether it was with a stone or stick, it is safe to say it was almost always with a weapon.
A pocketknife is a tool, a bayonet is for stabbing. A car is for transportation, and tank is for battle. A Winchester 70 is for hunting, the AR was invented to kill humans.
I appreciate machines for their design and quality, but they remain JUST machines and I do not worship them. Many 2nd amendment enthusiasts cross that line. Rationally, a firearm is just an assemblage of levers and tubes. To the irrational, it is a thing of power and beauty.
The problem with your argument is the old bait & switch routine and dishonest method you diabolical Democrats use.

OK - say we ban the AR. Then your argument above with your "revelation" changes from AR to the next level and eventually there is a total ban on all guns.

Another problem with your argument is that many more people are killed daily by handguns in cites that are infested with Democrats. Granted, this was an awful tragedy, however considering 10 times as many blacks as whites kill each other every year. In 2009, there were 16,197 homicides and guess what, most of those by far were by hand guns illegally owned.

You are making a case without being fact based and as a typical libtard, simply going on emotion.

Go to page 10 here to see data. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr61/nvsr...

The diabolical, dishonest Democrat will stop at nothing to take away freedom and trample the constitution. What was that saying by President Axlered? I believe it was never let a good disaster go to waste, or something like that.

so sorry that the latest mass shooter just had to be a white guy. i can just imagine the pleasure you racists would have experienced if it had been a person of color. and heck, you would have had a much better excuse for it happening than something like 'it was God's wrath'.
Oh, dont worry about that. One good week of black-on-black gun violence FAR eclipses yesterday's school massacre. It's just that they are all mostly urban street scum (instead of innocent schoolchildren), so nobody cares....

we should pass a law, evidently in secret, that would allow such a thing?

i'm just so sure the NRA could keep that one quiet. they'd probably start arguing for a new law to carry assault weapons because golly gee whiz, if we're going to have 2 armed guards in every school the next mass shooter is going to need some more firepower.

But it's only the whites who have an excuse for murder, they are investigated and found to be suffering from mental illness, depression, medication etc. It's the way it is.

Not a single one of the 600 guns sold required any background check or verified ID. It is a certainty that at least some of these guns ended up in the hands of thugs, and a near certainty that some are in the hands of the cartels.
You have to wonder at the inability of people to empathize with the inevitable outcome of moral transgression. Why is there such an outcry against the unions that the auto manufacturers have been working with for generations, yet such staunch defense of the NRA, which deliberately and transparently misconstrues the second amendment?

Mandate two qualifed staff members secretly armed in each school, and the risk is greatly diminished.
Duh...
You are touching on an excellent point. Our kids are exposed to violence at a very young age from watching TV and playing games.

The "Savior" Democrats however would "NEVER" go after their cash cow and buddies in Hollywood. The Democrats act as if violence in movies and on TV does not exist.

The Democrat is incapable of logic and seeing past the end of his nose. The Democrat is also lacking in principle and ethics. He ignores negative factors and implications if it suits his NAZI agenda. He even propagandizes news like the NAZI and fascist governments do.

Benghazi was a text book example.
