There are many ways to kill, murders will still happen without guns. Should we also ban nailguns, hammers, kitchen knives, screwdrivers, baseball bats, autos...etc. the focus should'nt be on guns, but on why/what causes a person to WANT to kill.

One basball bat wouldn't have killed 20 kindergartners and 6 adults.

gee,ya think? You miss the point. Take away guns then other means will br used. How many lives are valuable? Each person killed,even one. Affects an entire family. Deaths will still occur. I:m not the only person with this view. Research NEEDS to be done on why a person does such horrific acts. I:m for preventing ill people regonized long before they act out on their delusions. Twice in this month a criminal threw a person onto traintracks. One died,the other lived. No weapon used bu the perpertrator,he just used what was available. Ya think those victims ser gun control as the answer? One thing I do believe is to ban asault weapons. Not handguns. Guns also save lives in self defense of oneself and/or family from attack. Law abiding citizens need guns because of criminals. Think you can disarm ctiminals? If so, THEN the lawabiders can disarm.

And....again.

Other means wouldn't have killed 20 children. 20 children weren't killed on the traintracks. 20 children weren't killed by any other means than a semi-automatic weapon.

And one last thing - handguns were not made for hunting, target practice or sport. They were designed and made for doing one thing and one thing only - to kill people.

You don't need a handgun, or a firearm for that matter, to hunt.

My buddy Fred Bear said so.

What I REALLY don't need is the idiot government telling me what I need or don't need. It used to be called FREEDOM before the liberal communists took over.

Actually, those "liberal communists" didn't take over. The "clueless conservaturds" gave away the last election.

Your freedoms are set forth by your government and protected by branches of the Armed Services that work for that government.

Did you all hear Texas wants to arm all 21 yr olds who are in college.

Now lets just think of that for a minute.

Hundreds of 21 yr olds packing heat in one place..

Yeah that sounds like a good idea to me...NOT!!

This here "liberal communist" fought for those so-called rights that you Conservatives hold so "dearly."

Show some intelligence and leave the name-calling for the playground - we all know you hate half of Americans anyways.

ok,I see I have to be as basic as I can. Suppose a principal or teacher had a gun (licensed to carry one) seen a person with a weapon enter school. That gun could have saved those 20 students. And for sake of argument-such an occurance happened, principal/teacher shot such a person entering thiet school with a weapon. Would you be glad that person was shot before killing any studentd? Cannada has as many guns. Do you hear of any news of school shootings there? Or of gund being used for crimes? The U.S. has the hiighest crimes by firearms than Canada. This shows there is a physch problem as to WHY a person does this. Take away guns, criminals will still have them-use them. You have't addressed that on my previous post. I'll be 100% for a gun ban when/if all the guns criminals have are confiscated. Any ideas to achieve that?

You're assuming many things - as does the NRA.

Now, let me get some basics in. You're assuming that:

1. The teacher can shoot - accurately and not hit another teacher or student.
2. That there would be at least one teacher who was not teaching at the time and was actually waiting for someone to break into school with a loaded gun.
3. Shooting someone with a handgun will drop them like an assault rifle. I've seen a guy run for 3-1/2 blocks after he was shot with a handgun and was still standing, waiting for the ambulance - not so much with an assault rifle.
4. That the "perp" would announce his entrance like a Hollywood movie star at the Oscars. He would probably not be wearing a paper target on his chest either.

You watch waaaaaay too much TV. Shooting to kill someone is not like it looks like on TV or the movies. The real world is not black and white. Shooting and killing someone has rattled even the best cops throughout history. It's not anything like posting testosterone-laden posts on a public forum.
