Look around you, just what makes human life so sacred, we lie, cheat steal, murder, the list is endless.
We are an infection, our only redeeming quality is love but we will destroy ourselves in the end still foolishly professing our love for one another.
Who's WE? You make that assumption based on what....because YOU do those things? Maybe we should punish those who lie, cheat, steal, murder, etc....and give the innocent babies a chance at life....like you had.

It appears you are saying Life begins at Conception.
Good thing you anti choice people put that word Conception in there.
If it was not you people would attempt to make menstrual cycles for women illegal.
It appears you are saying life begins when the baby is all the way out. Tell me, just when exactly does life begin? How come we don't have this "choice" to kill people AFTER they are out of the womb?

Do you honestly think that if an ASSAULT WEAPON was used at Sandy Hook that the left wing media wouldn't have it splattered all over every libtard news media outlet in the world. Don't you think they would be bringing it up on the Congressional floor in their attempt to pass laws banning such weapons. Wouldn't that left wing nut Feinstein be using it as a pathetic tool in her gun grabbing efforts? Barney you are either stupid or a liar! Maybe both!
Did Sandy Hook even happen?
If it did, was it really some crazy guy acting alone?
Or did someone, or some group, have a hand in making it happen...for the sole purpose of promoting gun control?

Libs do think they can kill a baby outside of the womb. Look at that doctor now on trial for breaking the spine of all of those babies. SICK! Their leader Obama voted for infanticide also. What a sick disgusting bunch of animals these pukes are..

"let all employees within the school, who wants to, be armed"
"stop a shooter if they aren't in the right place at the right time within said building"
That leads me to the question, "what if those who wants to be armed are not at "the right place at the right time"
As you said, "They're kinda big, ya know"
Bottom line, if the armed guards and a police force on campus (who , what makes you think a teacher with a hand gun up against fully armed Insane person with body armor would be any more effective.
Do you really think that these shooters care if they walk out alive or not.
There is never a 100% guarantee of safety. An armed school employee may not be in the right area at the right time. Even someone with an assault rifle can be shot if they aren't prepared.

But the intruder won't know who's armed and who's not. He may just think twice about targeting a school.

Then again, maybe the armed school employee will be in the right place at the right time. Or maybe he/she will be close enough to hear the commotion and come around a corner in time to take down the shooter before he kills more people.

Maybe the shooter can be held at gunpoint until the police arrive.

There's a million different scenerios.

As for your last question; some shooters may not care if they walk out alive. Some might care.

The fact remains, the ONLY person that can keep you the "safest" is you. Without a gun of any kind, it really doesn't matter what kind of gun someone else has. They will shoot you with it and all you can do in defense is run or hide. That does not give you good odds.

Tell you what , don't take my word for it, take you a little road trip over to White Sands and try to get into a secured area, and see for yourself what big bad weapons they have.
If you are attempting and unauthorized entry you will find out real fast.
Why do they need those big, bad weapons?
Why can they defend themselves, but individuals can't defend themselves?

I did not say citizens should not have guns of any kind, IM saying it makes no sense to make that kind of weapon available to the general public, or 30 round clips either.
Number of rounds is irrelevent. Why is killing 30 people more wrong than killing eight people, or one person? The person pulling the trigger has full responsibility for what they do. It is not the bullets doing anything wrong.

I have two fifteen round clips, both loaded and ready to fire if need be. It doesn't matter how many rounds I have. There's not one person who will die from them, unless it's in defense of my life. Those fifteen round clips are no more dangerous to society than my keyboard.

I may buy more large capacity magazines soon too. One never knows what they will be up against. Did you ever think sometimes bad guys work in pairs or teams? My life isn't worth taking a chance of being unprepared.

As I said that was then. If you are putting that type of weapon on the street it would only stand to reason that Law enforcement would need those weapons too.
Brings to mind, how many tax dollars go to buy these weapons for law enforcement agencies around the country you think.
What is your freedom and liberty to own that type of weapon costing other tax payers.
Guess you are not to concerned about the cost to society in the form of dollars and innocent children,and adult lives lost, as long as you have your toys.
"If you are putting that type of weapon on the street it would only stand to reason that Law enforcement would need those weapons too."
Why would they? Can't they take down a criminal with just one bullet?
Okay, what about a maximum of seven bullets?

I mean, if seven rounds is enough for the public, why should the cops get more than that? Aren't our lives of equal value?

Thank you, that is Cookie, one of our three we have given a home to because they were abandon or the owner did not want it.

Far as we are concerned it's their loss, and a whole lot of love gained for these two empty nesters.

I have three as well. One of them was also in a situation of not being wanted or cared for. He's never had it so good in his life. And he brings so much love and joy into our home.

Funny thing is, he would love us whether we're conservative or liberal, as I'm sure yours does. LOL

There's nothing better than the love and devotion of a dog!(to someone who's never had a child.)

Thanks, both those are animals that adopted us. That cat and her sister showed up here last May, according to our house sitter, I was going to take them to a no kill shelter, but it would be a couple days before I could take them.......... big mistake.

Too late, wife said "do you think we could keep them?

As you can see Angel thinks those kittens were her kids, and still does!


Happy to say that all three of those stray animals have been spade.

Had to get a political point in somewhere.

My love and compassion for animals has gotten me labeled as a liberal here on Topix on more occasions than I can name. That's why I don't like stereotypes when it comes to political affiliation. One can be a conservative and love animals as I do...though Warrior and Churm may disagree.

It kills me to see what they are doing on my route to work. The road is being widened. Trees are being cut down and there are a some areas that are wet. In the spring, these areas are loaded with frogs. I enjoy hearing hundreds of them call in the spring as I drive by in the evening. They are SOOOO loud!

Now I see all the bulldozers and destruction equipment ready to plow all those frogs under and pour cement over them. I can't fathom how anybody could do that! It makes me wonder if all the workers are oblivious to what's in the ditches and wet areas, or if they know and just don't care.

The trees being cut don't bother me much because it is not nesting season yet. If the birds were back and had nests with babies, that would be an issue for me.

I'd like to see them capture as many frogs and toads as they can and relocate them before they do the work. Tunnels under the new road for animals who need to cross would be nice too.
