How would you feel about simply requiring a trigger lock be installed on all weapons when not in use? These devices render a weapon useless until removed by a keyholder. And yes the number of unregistered firearms is extremely important. Understand that within this group are the weapons owned by criminals who will not abide by any gun statute you care to suggest. Basically your suggestions would only impact those who would not engage in criminal activity to begin with. Personally the firearms I own are already very secure and your suggestions would not effect me at all. But it would give the left wingers the "feel good" they are after unfortunately it would do nothing to solve the problem.
There are some guns now that have a lock that won't allow anyone to even load the gun at all. Unloaded guns are as safe as a gun can possibly be. I agree that the criminals are going to do whatever they want to do no matter what the laws are. I wish there was some way to reduce the number of criminals, but that seems to be almost impossible. I for one think that there needs to be some type of regulation of these rated 'M' for mature games. Maybe a time limit on these 1st person shooter games? It's just a suggestion.

I still think gun control in whatever form is simply a rubber stamp for political gain that will have very little real positive impact. Many of us conservative gun types have preached for years about the escalating violence in media whether it be TV, or Gaming or Movies, and have advocated it's reduction. We have been consistently met with the idea that it would violate free speech. Now that media violence is leading to ever increasing real world violence the liberal types are going after gun laws that will, guess what, violate the Constitution. Typical reaction I suppose, too little, too late when 20 kids are dead and I fear without real measures taken to secure schools and public areas more will follow. We spend all our energy on political agendas versus addressing the real issue. Security has become a necessary fact of modern life. Israel realized this many years ago and in their very dangerous area of the world do fairly well protecting their citizens.

I love how regulating guns in any way is apparently an impossibility but regulating a wholly digital medium with an international market that anyone with an Internet connection could access is an easy common-sense answer.

I suppose it comes down to parenting. It is bad parenting to let your child spend hours shooting pretend people; it is bad parenting to bring rifles, handguns, and shotguns into your home and leave them unsecured.

I think you are absolutely spot on with that statement. However, we have two generations having just come of age or getting ready to that have grown up in a pro drug, pro violence culture. Problems like this take many years to develop and fester and will take many years to fix. Hence, "SECURE THE SCHOOLS WITH ARMED SECURITY BEFORE IT HAPPENS AGAIN."

More armed security at schools, and you point to the Zionist Israel as an example. That speaks volumes about you. I have said for years that it is too easy to get a gun. Especially at gun shows. Any homicidal fool can walk in and buy any gun they want with no background check at all. We license drivers more carefully than gun owners ....and we are paying the price for it.

You are the type that would argue with a brick aren't you Wavy? LOL Do you disagree with anyone who isn't a pot head?

Never mind my opinion, hell bring on gun control you can wave a rolled up copy in front of the next nut with a rifle or semi auto pistol with 100 loaded and legal 10 rd magazines in his pack. Make sure you tell the next group of parents with dead kids you supported the new gun control statutes.

Wavy, am I to assume from your "Zionist Israel" comment you are a bit of a religious bigot?

A certain idiot from the UK tries to use this tragedy as a reason to attack gun rights on CNN. Yes, there are fewer murders in the UK since they banned guns. They're overall crime rate, however is 10.41% while ours is actually only 3.811%. We have a considerably larger population, so the numbers are going to sound terrible unless you look at the percentage. Here's a video of said idiot trying to "argue" his point.

And for those who want to check out our crime rates for themselves, here is where I got my information:

It would be interesting to know just how many seconds difference between emptying a 30 round mag. and 3 10rd. mags. The politicans don't have a clue how fast you can drop a Glock mag. and pop another in. Its equally fast with an AR or most semi autos. I also know many gun owners that have had guns for over 50 years and have never killed or wounded anybody. What would it accomplish to take these guns away?

Finally someone has a reasonable solution to the problem. Train and arm teachers to make schools a less vulnerable target for these cowards. A school district in Harrold, TX could give some good advice to schools around the country on how to keep our children safer.
