Time to let some of them die for their beliefs. That will quiet the rest of the make believe tough guys.
I'm thinking it's time for anyone who mouths the stupidity 'i have a gun to protect me from the government' to be rounded up and placed in reeducation camps, to teach them not to be traitors to their nation, and make sure the talk of sedition is silenced once and for all.

Whether our own children have long ago moved on, if we live in a bustling city or on a quiet country lane, our days are somehow marked by children setting out for school. The primary school I know best and whose girls and boys I recall so vividly today happen to live in Nepal.

The school sits on the edge of Kathmandu city near Balaju bridge, off noisy Nayaa Bazaar. A poor neighborhood by some standards perhaps, but it’s the most important place to the 400 children who have begun their learning here.All across the globe the events in USA last week make those sounds more precious today. As we connect them, maybe grieving Americans can better understand the silence of little Palestinian and Pakistani and Iraqi corpses.

In the year since Australia's gun ban went into effect: Homicides up 3.2%, assaults up 8.6%, and armed robberies are up 44%. In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300%.

You see the law abiding citizens turned in their guns. The criminals did not.

That is what defines the left! After all, Al Gore lives in a mansion with a carbon footprint of several homes. It's so hypocritical. Democrats are so conflicted.

Tennessee pastor: Mass shootings because schools teach evolution and ‘how to be a homo’
(this guy has such a way with words, so inspiring)
We get all up in arms about 20 children being shot in a day care but we don’t give one good-glory rip about the 4,000 that were removed violently from the wombs of their mothers [in abortion procedures] the same day,” he explained.“I believe they use children and Christmas and all that to pull on our heart strings about gun control. That’s what it’s all about.”
Morris insisted that “humanism” in schools taught Lanza that he was God and “he can just go blow away anybody he wants.”
“When I got in high school, man, I started learning all this kingdom, phylum stuff, all this junk about evolution,” he recalled.“And I want to tell you what evolution teaches — here’s the bottom line — that you’re an animal. That’s what it teaches. So, you’re an animal, you can act like an animal. Amen.”
“So, here you are, you’re an animal and you’re a god! So, what are we going to teach you about in school? Well, we can teach you about sex, we can teach you how to rebel to you parents, we can teach you how to be a homo! But we’re definitely not going to teach you about the word of God! Amen.”
Raw Story ( http://s.tt/1xbBN )
Mike Huckabee: "We have systematically removed God from our schools."

The former governor of Arkansas, Republican hopeful for president, and Fox News host says we've got no reason to be surprised when adult gunmen shoot up educational establishments.

"We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools," Huckabee said on Fox News, discussing the murder spree that took the lives of 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown, CT that morning. "Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?"

I don't doubt the governor's sincerity, but among other things, he might want to think about the declining rate of school violence. According to data compiled by the National Center for Education Statistics, schools have been getting safer and less violent at least over the past couple of decades - despite what Huckabee would doubtless consider a period of rising godlessness. During the school year of 1992-93, for instance, the number of on-location murders of students and staff at K-12 public schools was 47 (out of population of millions). In 2009-2010 (the latest year for which data is listed), the number was 25. Over the same period, the rate on victimizations per 1,000 students for theft dropped from 101 to 18. For violent crimes, the rate dropped from 53 to 14. And for "serious violent" crimes, the rate dropped from 8 to 4.

I do find it ironic that hallelujah means basically a joyful expression of praise and thanksgiving to God, so not sure why people are singing it regarding the shooting in CT.

Face it, doofus, there are no 'safe places' in THIS sick, sad society, never mind Syria.
The fact is that Americans are safer now than ever, but, as you say, there is no such thing as complete safety.

If the schools armed some of their personnel, the children would never see the guns and would never know.

In fact, the point is that nobody would know who was armed or not, just as in the air marshal program. Not the other teachers, not even the principal.

THE FREEDOM OF DEMOCRATS There are occasions when statements appearing in newspapers are so significant that one can justifiably predict they will be cited for years to come.

Such is the case with the November 29 editorial published by the New York Times entitled “Rules for Targeted Killing.” It marks another critical milestone in the repudiation of core democratic rights and constitutional principles by the US ruling establishment.

The editorial notes approvingly that the Obama administration is “developing rules for when to kill terrorists around the world.”

The drafting of these “rules” has been attributed to concerns within the administration in advance of the elections that “standards and procedures” be put in place in case Obama lost. Undoubtedly a more compelling motivation is the fear that one day they could all be indicted for war crimes. The new rules, and the Times editorial itself, are a tacit admission of criminality.

Nonetheless, the Times hails this “first step toward acknowledging that when the government kills people away from the battlefield, it must stay within formal guidelines based on the rule of law—especially when the life of an American citizen is at stake.”

To call such language Orwellian barely begins to do it justice.

“Targeted killings” or “when the government kills people away from the battlefield” are transparent euphemisms for state assassinations and extrajudicial murders, which are explicitly banned by international law and proscribed by the US Constitution. Over the last four years, the Obama administration has been carrying out such crimes on an industrial scale by means of drone missile attacks.
