The pattern repeats after every massacre and after every election of a Democratic president—sales of firearms and ammunition surge before the liberals can supposedly engineer their inevitable bans. Anyone who’s been to a gun show since 2008 has seen the rising prices and the religious certitude that President Obama will make a run at the Second Amendment, just like Illinois state Sen. Obama did in the 1990s.

The irony of the Great Ammo Panic: Liberals have failed to restrict sales, even as the interstate and online purchase of ammo has become easier. One of the NRA’s greatest legislative successes, the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act, let dealers sell ammo without recording vital information about the buyers. That law eventually facilitated the online ammo market, which allows sites like CheaperThanDirt to sell 30-round extended clips for $8.99.

We have two local schools working with the local police to have a policeman on site.
If people want guns in the schools, then it should be with trained law enforcement.
Not some teacher or principal who took a weekend course.
Perhaps the teachers need more, and enhanced training. How about both, teachers trained with firearms AND police? If a teacher shooses to remain unarmed, like I choose any and every time I leave my home, then that is a choice available to them.
And, then we can work on training our teachers to be better than producing the most expensive workforce in the industrialized world with the most expensive education system in the world.
Out of curiosity, why do you think we have the most expensive education system in the world adn produce the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world?

Why does John Galt, i.e. Nobama, run off whenever the subject matter becomes too real?

It would seem he'd rather ignore the rising waters and not make waves because it might rock the boat.

You can rock the boat without capsizing. It just wakes everyone up.

Then you need to be more specific when invoking Reagan in a national forum. Did you know he was also President?
Of course I know that. Who could forget the Iran-Contra scandal and his brilliant statement that "trees cause more pollution than automobiles do"? He's right down there in the bottom of the presidential garbage can with George Bush.

Fox Attacks Obama’s Anti-School Shooting Policy Before Anyone Knows What It Is

Fox News may have broken some kind of record tonight when, after President Obama finished his address in Newtown, Connecticut at a vigil for the school shooting victims, Fox's “fair and balanced” panel began attacking President Obama’s forthcoming policy to prevent such tragedies before anybody knew what it was. It may well have been before Obama even formulated it.

When this animal shot himself in the head he cheated capital punishment advocates out of the best argument they ever had. After this I've had to ask myself, Are we really obligated to keep scum like this alive in our penal system? Or, even worse, must we release mentally ill back into society if we find a medication that renders them harmless after they massacre our children?
Let's ask the people letting John Hinkley out for little vacations that question.

Interesting point. Are they only law abiding if they agree with the law?

Yup, you and the rest of the nutcases, Dobson, Ficsher, Huckabee,
the Westboro group, you're all birds of a feather.
A massacre happens and you blame it on gay marriage and abortion.
Anything to promote your pushing your religion on everyone.
Can't you people ever just give it up for one effing day and let these people alone to mourn their childrens death? Have you no shame? It's sickening.

He's been here through the thick of it, maybe he has a life off of Topix. I happen to know for a fact that Nobama fights bears for a living, maybe there's a grizzly in the yard.

politics/legislation is the only thing that can change it.

hollow words from hypocritical deity worshipers sure won't get it done. otherwise, you'd have nothing to complain about.
