PS: Your not afraid of 'Kenya' r'ya?
First, they weren't videos I posted - they were pictures. Secondly, I would've thought that with your cyber-teaching degree from EKU, they would've included an audio visual course to teach the cyber-undergrads the difference between a fence and no fence, a still picture and a video, a link and 4,000 words, etc., etc., etc.

Was it war or movie theater:

Only 71 died, so it didn’t even make the national news. The law don’t bother anymore to figure out which ones the shooter or shooers nailed and which ones got it in the crossfire. It’s a pretty hopeless task. But, hey, that’s the price we have to pay for our freedom.

<quoted text> you think you're not assuming? Your post show you:re fixated on one school shooting of 20 kids,where I'm posting on a wider scale. I watch little tv by the way
I don't have cable or sattellite. Just a digital decoder,get 18 channels. So there is'nt much to watch. See how you make assumtions? Yes,some can be shot and still do things. Depends on where a person is shot. Still you won't address what I said before. How would you disarm criminals before lawadiding citizens guns are taken away? Hot to disarm them first. Till then guns are needed to protect ourselves from them.
My point is, that it's hard enough getting good enough teachers nowadays that can actually TEACH our kids something of substance, let alone asking them also to carry a gun, put themselves in harm's way and protect our kids in a gunfight. I'm not sure the teacher's unions will go for that - at least the rank and file that I know of wouldn't vote that in. The reason you become a teacher is that it is an extremely rewarding profession, on an intellectual level - you don't have to wait 10 years to see your successes blossom. As one of my teacher friends told me last week - "If I wanted to carry a gun and protect children, I would've applied through the Sheriff's Department."

As I've said all along - keep your guns and ammunition - as long as there's guns out there for the crazies to kill kids, the prices will continue to escalate. Maybe then and only then will ALL gunowners begin to take responsibility to actually lock up their guns.

Lastly, did you see that the largest gun show on the east coast was postponed yesterday? The exhibitor said, "In the current climate, we felt that the presence of modern sporting rifles would distract from the theme of hunting and fishing, disrupting the broader experience of our guests."

Uh oh...

PS: Considering that would classify as 'hazardous duty' maybe they'd start getting payed what their worth-(the good ones).

Think it through for a change. States don't want to pay the teacher's unions now, let alone pay them more money. A very large chunk of what you pay in taxes goes to pay for teacher's salaries, buildings and grounds, insurance, etc. Republican governors such as the asshat we have up here in Wisconsin, Scott Walker is a teacher's union buster - you really think he wants to pay them more?

Fat chance.

I agree with both of you. However, there are ways to provide protection without teachers walking down the halls like Wyatt Earp. Issue a handgun to be LOCKED inside their desks in case of emergency. At least let the ones who would like that piece of mind but we don't need to force them to carry.

The United States isn't the only place where gun violence takes place, We are also not the only place that hasn't taken a firm stance on our criminals. The same type of senseless killing happened just recently at the youth camp on Utoya island. The Norwegian govt did the same thing to Breivik that the US does...put him in jail.

If anyone thinks that placing a tax on ammo and firearms is going to pay to make places safer they are living in a dreamworld. It is time that we stopped providing existence to those that commit these types of acts and began to get rid of them. The lie about being cheaper to house than to eliminate is perpetrated by our own litigation and should be changed. When we stop tossing money down the rabbit hole and instead use it to create safeguards we will have our fix, or at least be on that road. It makes me sick every time I hear about the 'sanity' of some murderer..millions of dollars tossed away while the blood is flowing.

So, just bury the problem and hope the desease will go away?

Just remember - it is the government that "we" elected into power.

How out of touch is an 85-year old Supreme Court Justice?

Lol...just a reminder - we broke into our 8th grade math teacher's desk and read all of his Hustler magazines when he was on vacation.

And I wouldn't want to have to fumble around for a key when somebody busts down the door with an AK spraying rounds everywhere.

Burying the problem is what our current laws have done..and the result is a malignant cancer that we continue to feed and house at a very high cost. The disease is still there, we just put it out of sight and mind. The surgery bills keep coming year after year while the media and litigators try to sell us on the cause..

I agree, but I also believe it's the only way to manage 330+ million people. Our's is a society of compassion and rehabilitation - it's always been that way. Face it - everybody feels good when you watch "The Birdman of Alcaraz," right?

Wrong again Crain - the second and third largest police forces in the United States are armed also in those two cities.

I KNOW!!!!!!

Put "GUN FREE ZONE" signs outside of the gun show! Then, when the killer shows up to massacre, everyone buys guns and ammo really quick without background checks, shoots the guy(s) and then everybody is a hero!
