OK what is the answer? According to you more guns not less.

this is a start and what Liberal(pseudo) States in New England or Northeast need to do instead of passing more strict gun laws restricting Law Abiding guns owners to carrying guns in and around schools.

Michigan Lawmakers passed a bill Thursday that tweaks the concealed weapons law by allowing gun owners who receive additional training to carry their weapons in formerly gun-free areas, including schools.

Yep. A gun in a trained teacher's possession sure wouldn't have made anything worse yesterday. Guns carried by law abiding citizens save lives every day. The media rarely reports that fact. And as a female, you should be all for the odds that favor women who are trained, confident and armed.

I don't own a gun. Never have. But I did carry a switch blade when I went to school at OU. That was 20 yrs ago and I would walk home from school. But I didn't run into any problems.

I don't think that would be a good idea in a school because there is always a chance a student could get a hold of it, then the school would be responsible.

This is not utopia. There is no answer, but freedom, freedom to bear arms and to kill those who try to break into your home to rape, rob and pillage.

Criminals will always have weapons so good people need to have them as well, practice consistently and be ready to shoot to kill those who would do evil.

No different than a cop assigned to a school. That's part of the training...control of the weapon at all times. I'd say pay the teachers a 10% salary premium for the added responsibility. That's a nice extra $8000 a year in a suburban district for a teacher in their 40s or 50s.

Then why are we arming the police? You are far more likely to be killed by the police than by a criminal.

That should have been loony. I can't believe so many are worked up about gun control.

I have a question to those that carry a concealed weapon? Does it make you feel safe? Also why does anyone need an assault rifle, of 223 Caliber? Have you ever seen the damage one bullet with that kind of velocity can do? I have seen many times what a 222 can do, it isn’t a pretty sight.

Gun Control only affects the Law Abiding Citizen, the degenerates with guns the laws mean nothing. I have lived in a area where majority owns a .223 Caliber Gun and guess what no problems for years and they are all law abiding citizens.

It makes the criminal element feel unsafe, concealed weapons have never increased crime, they always decrease it. Research confirms this.

I dunno, ask the Swiss government, they issue assault rifles to the population. Real guns, with full automatic, new assault rifles after 1986 were banned for civilians, you can only get the old ones after a bunch of paperwork, an FBI background check equivalent to Top Secret clearance, and the sign off of the county sheriff. What is called an "assault rifle" doesn't have full automatic. It's no different than the WWII M1 Garands that the US government sells in the CMP, which fires the 30-06 cartridge, three times more powerful than 223

Yes I have. I own 5 guns that are currently considered assault rifles. I own two .223 rifles, one 5.56/.223 rifle that will shoot military rounds or commercial rounds. I also have a Russian ak47 and a .308 rifle. They are all safely under lock and key in my safe. They go to the range with me a lot. I also have several military grade shotguns and several pistols. I also have had extensive background checks. I've worked for several state and federal programs. I've had a federal firearms license. I've been granted concealed carry licensure in multiple states. I've had extensive firearms training. I've been an instructor for firearms courses.

Trust me we aren't who you need to worry about. When society breaks down (and it will happen at this rate), we will be the people you will be begging for help from.

No I don't need a gun to feel safe. With my training I could probably disarm or kill most people before they could mortally wound me. I'd rather

Not take that chance. Criminals have guns and they don't care about laws. I hope you never are a victim of a violent crime involving a gun in the hands of a criminal. If you live through one you might understand why so many of us hold onto our guns.
