How far would Adam Lanza have gotten if the school principal and her aides had been carrying sidearms?

The people who teach your children how to read, write, and think for themselves cannot be responsible for protecting them with guns! Someone else needs to do that if that is what it takes!

If a teacher is smart enough to teach arithmetic, she's smart enough to hold a gun.

Unfortunately, a lot of them aren't that smart...

Even a topic as serious as this one is turned into a joke by some. Scares me that those are the ones who think "guns for everyone" is the answer.

I don't think "guns are for everybody" but in this day and age they are for a lot more people than the violent culture and drug culture that we are in---deterrence is a necessity--sure cops on the street deterred violence at one point---what cops do you see on the streets today-- oh yes the meter maid--she is a deterrent to illegally parked cars but that's about it-----instead of wistfully pining for the Leave it to Beaver era--realize the reality of the present--am I for stricter gun contro'?? Yep----everyone on the registration process must be cleared by a pyschiatric exam-- and one not administered by one of those non-judgmental moral relativists-- you know "I'm Ok-- You're OK"---let's all ho;dands and sing Cumbaya--maybe that's where we should start--get rid of them first

We agree more than we differ. Let's think in terms of gun safety rather than gun control. Guns have a place in our society, but it should be a highly regulated process for obtaining one. Teachers carrying guns is a foolish idea. I would not want my grandchildren in a school where there were guns in the hands of anyone but law enforcement. Better mental health care is probably a big part of the answer. And it seems that Republicans want to make cuts in areas that actress such issues.

Quit true that praxis is a caller in to the Bender side show. I have know it for some time.
Really? What caller was I? I've forgotten.

Why do you even pay attention to this blithering idiot, Cardimino? Seriously. The man is an abject idiot. Surely, you must have something better to do with your time.

Thanks, Clark. Now, does one need a clip that carries 30 bullets to go hunting? I don't have a problem with gun ownership; target shooting is fun, I've done it. But, limiting access to assault rifles makes sense.

Limiting clips makes sense to me-- of course a perp could carry multiple clips--as I recall the Arizona shooter was changing clips when he was jumped --prevented more carnage----I'm not sure that an AR 15 is really an assault rifle-- looks like one no doubt--but it is semi automatic--no different in function than my old Winshester 22 (except for the magazine clip issue)

Maybe not 'guns for everyone', but certainly guns for school teachers and principals in order to protect the children.
You got a problem with protecting kids when they are sitting ducks in no-gun school zones?(Meaning where the only guns are those in possession of people for whom laws don't mean a damn thing.)
