So you think if they can't get a gun they're all going to be making their own C-4?
I wish them luck. Most likely they're blow themselves up in the process.
It's a win-win situation!
Most likely? You have experience with blowing yourself up or just blowing yourself? Sorry, I couldn't pass it up. The fact is, there are many weapons that can kill large numbers of people and they aren't even in the gun realm. Think about it.

<quoted text>the law makes it legal now for teachers that train as deputies to be armed in the school but these laws that they just past in Connecticut benefited the maniac's & criminals who care less about laws at least now the law abiding teachers that wish to carry now can legally without being treated as a criminal if the teachers were in possession of a legally own gun.
Great plan. At least until one of those "deputies" freaks out and opens fire on their students because they wouldn't "sit down & shut up".

Imagine if the Rutgers basketball coach who was fired had been allowed to carry a gun. How many dead basketball players would there have been? Gee, but nobody knew he was a psycho!

Oh yeah, great plan......

All the more reason not to put guns into the hands of people in stressful situations. If they want to be cops or in the military, I'm sure they're hiring. If they want to be teachers, then it's an unarmed position.

More guns is NOT the answer.

If one person at Sandy Hood had a gun only one person would be dead, the shooter, as soon as he pulled out the gun, and aimed.
Really? How'd that work out a Columbine where they had TWO armed guards?

More guns just means more dead kids caught in the crossfire.

Brilliant plan.

Carrying a gun means you're a REAL MAN! We must always be scared of our neighbor and fellow Americans. A man without a gun is like a woman without a purse.

Guns should be everywhere. Everyone should have at least ten to twenty-five of them to be considered a REAL AMERICAN!!!

Nope, which is why I served 20+ years in the military to keep your lazy azz safe.

Which is why I also know I don't want every dumb azz running around with a gun playing Dirty Harry or BlackOps.

Want to stop hijackings of aircraft? Simple. Have the airline give each passenger a handgun as they board the plane. See,how simple that was? Problem solved!

I don't fear people or guns; but I don't trust most people with guns.

And since we can ban people, all we can do is get rid of as many guns as possible.

We shouldn't be made responsible for the guns we buy. After all,nuthin' is more satisfyin' than selling guns at markup under the table, and of course,declaring them stolen to collect bogus insurance claims. Ooops,that's a dirty little secret.

I bet there are people in Indiana that have gone to school before, and been armed. No need to pull out the gun unless it is needed.

a Police State isn't the answer either that the Democrats like Dianne Feinstein & the others like her are pushing for and they are reason why Chicago is the way it is besides if you going to trust a teacher with your kids while they are their learning there should be no reason that the teachers should not the right to protect themselves and the students from degenerates which is why Adam Lanza picked a school and knew there was no threat.

I would rather see a School Teacher be certified v. a Uniform Deputy on school property besides we are already paying for the Teacher to be there v. paying a teacher and having a uniform Deputy or police officer on school property like the Democrats like Dianne Feinstein and the other Democrats like her want to do which is the start of their Police State they want and would cost more money.

If you are using a gun legally, to protect yourself against illegal guns used in illegal ways, how is this wrong? Why is it a "tea bagger" issue? Why is it "right wing"? I bet every liberal attorney in this city carries a handgun. Ok, not every one, but most. Is that a right winger, tea bagger issue also?
Responsible people like cops and such are constantly monitored for psychosis. 1 in 4 in this county is mentally ill. 1 in 10 will need to be in a mental hospital at some point in their life. You want these people to have with ssupervision. Hek they could be as crazy and racist as you. What if they belong to the KKK or White Aryan Nation and go nuts. How could we tell? Of course, I would say they are nuts like you and deny them guns based on their illness and their cray beliefs.
