You realize that you only spout off your opinion then boast about me and everyone being proven wrong by the "facts" in your posts. Do you see the arogance in that? About half of the posters on here have called you out on your completely false posts. The other half simply find you so off base that your posts are not worth responding too. I know you don't see it but I thought you should know that the only person that thinks you are right is you. I like seeing what your next post will be because I am amazed at how someone can be so wrong yet feel they are so right.
Please proceed in amusing me.
it's easy to say that someone's post on here is wrong and have no facts to back it up.. but you posted nothing in general to comment on so there is not that much to say you just basically told me that you think i'm wrong and that's your opinion but when presented with factual evidence time and time again you would think someone would finally see the truth.

You don't mean the same black market where 40% of all gun sales in America come from do you?
what? no? the 40% is refering to person to person sales not done through a store or a place that requires a background check and to have it registered... what are you talking about and where have you been?

Nice. What you really mean is "that the buying and selling of those types of guns has to stop... except on the black market."
Do you really beleive that because you want it stop, it will? That's like saying we MUST make people quit smoking pot. You can say it until you're blue in the face. When do you think it will be a reality?

During this time (2011-2015), being the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, there is nothing wrong with honoring the memory of our ancestors, white and black, that suffered through that terrible time. One of my grandfathers fought for Illinois and another, from White County, stayed out of the fight until the Yankees started looting the farms around his homestead.

But Mr. Redd, you seem to be obsessed with the "Southern Way".
Surely, you don't feel guilty after all this time has passed.
Not at all Army, any allegiance I once felt for the "Southern Way" evaporated during my sophomore year in HS with the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing in Birmingham mid Sept 63 followed in late November with the assassination of JFK.

While I'm not in any way ashamed of my family history, I'm sure they did what they thought was right at the time, I think the years have proven their sacrifice wasted.

<quoted text>they are trained professionals in what they do best and that is teach... to train them to own a gun and require them to put in the same job training as a security gaurd or police officer is unacceptable .. most of them do not have the mantality to pull the trigger even if they were in that situation.. and if they don't regularly practice with the weapon who's to say they wont accedentaly take the life of one of their students in the crossfire or another coworker?... plus we are asking enough of our teachers already and to place a burden like this on them is not necessary.. hiring trained professionals and setting up security systems that work .. would be a far more responsible thing to do ... so what your implying now is that all the gun free zones be taken away ... so that everyone .. including students be able to carry weapons in classrooms? your way of thinking like all your friends here especially old army's are severly skewed and need a thorogh rethought on your part.
"so what your implying now is that all the gun free zones be taken away ... so that everyone .. including students be able to carry weapons in classrooms?"
Thank you for finally understanding what I am saying. YES, EVERYONE who wants one, and is of age, should be able to carry...as the Constitution clearly states.

"most of them do not have the mantality to pull the trigger even if they were in that situation."
All CCW holders are trained and know how and when to use their weapon. In twenty years it has yet to even cross my mind to pull my gun out. You make it sound as though everyone and their aunt will run out and buy a gun and start shooting people tomorrow.

How long do you think it will take an armed campus guard to drive over to where the shooter is?

"and if they don't regularly practice with the weapon who's to say they wont accedentaly take the life of one of their students in the crossfire or another coworker?"
People aren't as stupid as you make them out to be. One thing you fail to consider is that the teachers, other school workers and college students who may be armed might actually be better marksmen that the trained guards on the other end of the campus you advocate for. There are ALOT of people who shoot all the time as a hobby or are avid hunters.

You know as well as I do that there is no credible secessionist movement. Even if there was, your f*cked up idea to deport Americans that petition the government for redress of grievances flies in the face of the constitution that you once swore to uphold.
Understand that "redress of grievances" and outright sedition are two different things General Lee. If one professes a strong secessionist intent, then have the balls to accept the consequences of that possible action.

And the sole purpose of a gun is to issue lethal harm.
Who in their right mind would think such a thing should be tracked or confiscated after it was used for its intended purpose.
Registered guns are rarely used in crimes. They would like you to think tracking a murderer is that simple. Just another feel good law that does nothing but create more big government.

I tried to post to your "thread" but after about six words the red message came on saying there were too many characters!
"a person with a 6 round clip can only kill,injure, or wound, at most 6 people...... if people try to subdue the perpetrator then only 6 are in harms way instead of 16 .."
A six round clip means NOTHING to me. One dead person is just as tragic as sixteen... or six, IMO. Murders aren't committed by clips, or by guns. This is a people problem, NOT a gun problem. My clip could hold 100 rounds, but not ONE person would end up dead from my gun, unless it was self-defense. And don't tell me that a well practiced gunman can't reload a new clip, or grab a different gun from his pocket, before a scared teacher takes even one step towards him- not that she would subdue him anyway....
"what kind of monster are you really?" You, Sir, are the monster! You are calling for only criminals to have heavy fire power against children and innocent adults. Why? Are you a potential shooter?
"anyone with any balls like those teachers had would know that if you have to reload then you are vulnerable.."
Have you ever been in a situation like that? It happens very fast. The teacher has no way of knowing how many people are involved, where others might be, etc... She likely did as she was told thinking that was the right thing to do. Vulnerability means nothing when the victims won't, or can't, react.
"if you haven't noticed MOST if not ALL of these crimes have took place on grounds that do not permit guns"
Actually, I HAVE NOTICED. DUH!
Nuff said
so what your saying is that with your ignorant way of thinking you would rather lose 100k lives in battle instead of 2 or 3k ? what your saying is that it makes no difference in the amount of life lost whether 16 or 160 or 6 .. well let me tell you something you low life piece of work ... 6 casualties is far better than 16 anyway you put it .. ANY way you put it... and i'm not saying that is not what could happen as far as pulling out another gun or reloading the clip but i'm telling you right now you talk to any person who has any common sense at all and they will tell you that when you are switching weapons or reloading you are then VULNERABLE...and with security gaurds in place with the protective gear and training then casualties should be kept to a minimum ... you keep trying to pawn off the idea of arming teachers... teachers are already underpaid and over worked.. and you people want to cut the education budget even more.. and by you poeple i mean republicans... and on top of that you want to train them and keep them suited up with bullet proof vesst and straped with a loaded weapon teaching?... alot of those poeple don't have the mantality to do anything and could possibly injure more than just the assailant ... that's why they are TEACHERS not POLICEMEN....you even said "before a scared teacher takes even one step towards him- not that she would subdue him anyway" lol you managed to prove yourself wrong and criticize someone in the same sentence... proud of yourself? lol and it sometime amazes me just how ignorant you are.. "You, Sir, are the monster! You are calling for only criminals to have heavy fire power against children and innocent adults." whose calling for 100 round clips and semi and fully auto guns to be left legal to purchase and consume?... i think you should rethink before you start to type... and actually yes i have been shot at several times and know exactly how fast it happens and those teachers reacted based on instinct and responsibility to protect the lives of as many innocent children as they could .. something you said you would not do since "One dead person is just as tragic as sixteen."...if you noticed where the shootings took place then maybe you should have thought of about what your comments where in in your 2 prior posts DUH... lol get out of here with that what are we in 3rd grade now?

Once again, the facts don't back up your so-called "argument," if it can even be called that.

"First, we are a less violent nation now than we’ve been in over forty years. In 2010, violent crime rates hit a low not seen since 1972; murder rates sunk to levels last experienced during the Kennedy Administration. Our perceptions of our own safety have shifted, as well. In the early 1980s, almost half of Americans told the General Social Survey (GSS) they were “afraid to walk alone at night” in their own neighborhoods; now only one-third feel this way."

"Second, for all the attention given to America’s culture of guns, ownership of firearms is at or near all-time lows. Since 1973, the GSS has been asking Americans whether they keep a gun in their home. In the 1970s, about half of the nation said yes; today only about one-third do. Driving the decline: a dramatic drop in ownership of pistols and shotguns, the very weapons most likely to be used in violent crimes."

And do you think that with the secessionist movement, that the US government would just hand over a part of its domain without bloodshed?
BTW, anyone signing a legal petition to secede from the Union should be stripped of the rights afforded a American citizen and issued green cards and lose the right to vote.
Also no unemployment, Social security, Medicare, medicaid benefits and the possibility immediate deportation.
I hear Jonestown, Guyana is nice this time of the year.
So you think the government can blatantly disregard their oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and that the citizens should shut up and accept that. Wouldn't seceeding be a better option than "violent overthrow?"
