For all of these armed guards the NRA suggests we put in every single school in the land? We have schools that can't afford toilet paper or copy paper but we are going to hire armed guards for every school?

How mucked up and stupid is the NRA?

They won't blame guns, but they will blame video games for violence.

Again, how STUPID is the NRA?

Dumb as a box of bullets.

You can't. You can only prepare for it.

Perhaps as a nation we could decide to provide protection for our children as opposed to providing free cell phones for parasites that feel they deserve the same luxuries of life that working people have.

They should make schools save just as they do with all federal buildings because our chideren should be protected and the price should not be the issue.

Why is nobody suggesting we ban mental illness?
Seems as plausible as any other idea I have heard.

Don't hire additional armed guards, train the teachers and have them carry weapons just as every American should so they can protect themselves and their family

Hey, lets ban McDonald's and silverware since they make people fat! Lets ban cars since drunks kill people with them. Lets ban couches and chairs since they make lazy people. Lets ban security cameras since they invade our privacy. Lets ban sex because of rape. Hell lets ban life since it ultimately leads to death. Come on people, guns are not a problem. Someone has to pull the trigger. Ban stupid people would be better!

Force registration of ALL guns and let the owners pay taxes on them each and every year. These Assault type weapons with the high capacity clips or drums should be the most expensive to own. If you own a gun that is not registered, then it is an illegal gun and subject to be confiscated and the owner prosecuted for illegal ownership. Add a charge for ammunition to go towards this expense as well. Make it more expensive to own a lot of guns and more importantly, the most dangerous Military style guns, and then there will be less people willing to build an arsenal for mass-murderers to use.

Use that money to pay for the NRA's ideas. We would soon see how loyal NRA people are to their foaming mouthed leaders.

Only punishes the law abiding. Dumb idea.

Law abiding, like Mrs. Lanza? This would reduce the number of people who own these dangerous weapons and thusly, reducing the chances someone is able to use them in a mass shooting. I've yet to see your brilliant idea.

Didn't those guns do a good job protecting Mrs. Lanza?! I think the statistic is that you or your family are much more likely to be killed by your own gun than to ever use it against an intruder. It sure was true in this case!

Just like making drugs illegal makes it so difficult to get that drug users have no choice but to quit using.

No ideas are necessary. The crazy will always be crazy. Laws and taxes will not stop this. Just prepare by arming yourself.

And put more guns out there for the Crazies to get their hands on. Brilliant idea. Your lack of solutions is the same as the NRA's. Their ideas are to make more money for the gun manufacturers and sellers, regardless of how many lives it costs. While laws and taxes may not totally stop these senseless attacks on our citizens, it will reduce them greatly. When someone in your family becomes a victim of a gun attack, I would imagine you will change your mind. Let's hope America wakes up and realizes that more guns are NOT the answer. I, for one, don't want my children to have to go to school in a "Concentration Camp" type of setting, or have to wear an armored backpack, or be afraid to go to school. The NRA is enabling and promoting this fear to enhance their own status and power.

This is a stupid comparison and you are only trying to detract from the gun issue, Wayne LaPierre.
Drugs are illegal because they are dangerous to the users and the law is there to try to protect people.

Curious take on the situation. Very well thought out and composed. However, when one looks at the real numbers, seriously flawed. For example:

Chicago has been a shining city on a hill for gun-grabbers for decades. In fact, so extreme is the gun control in the Windy City that prior to the 2010 Supreme Court decision in McDonald v. Chicago, you couldn't even have a gun in your own house with which to defend yourself or your family.

In other words, a Chicago home owner was like a public school teacher -- he had to sit defenseless with his fingers crossed and simply hope the criminals didn't target his house on a given day or night.

Even now, after the McDonald decision, you have jump through myriad hoops to get a gun. And, although they are working on it, concealed carry has yet to be legalized.

So in a gun-control-utopia such as this, you'd expect school-age children to be safe from all harm, if you buy into the theories of Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Yet the truth is more than 440 school-age children have been shot in Chicago in 2012. This is not to say that 440 school-age children died, simply that more than 440 school-age children were at least wounded. The number of school-age children killed is reported at approximately 60.

These numbers are well above those for the 2011-2012 school year, in which 319 Chicago students were wounded and another 24 were killed.

The bottom line: It seems that denying the free exercise of the right to keep and bear arms to law-abiding citizens not only does not curtail the actions of criminals, but actually emboldens them.

One would think that if legislation would solve the problem, the 20,000 plus laws already on the books would be sufficient. Only a libbie would think that one more law would solve the problem.
