With a round of firearm, someone could take down a number of people in just seconds/minutes. A hammer could possibly take 2 people at the most, after which others would very likely jump him and take him down. Most would try to overpower someone wielding a hammer or knife, but a firearm, I don't think so. Assault weapons should be banned and removed from the general public.
And Tim Mcveigh proved that with some fertilizer and gas you can take down a building in seconds.
And in 2001 19 people proved that you could take box cutters and take over 4 airplanes.
And in 2003 a man with a car proved that in seconds you could kill 9 people by plowing over them.

Waffle House Robber Killed By Concealed Carry Permit Holder. I hate to see a kid throw his life away, literally, for whatever could be stolen from a Waffle House, but when you start pointing guns at people and robbing them, you forfeit your right to take in oxygen. This is especially true if there is someone with a gun pointed at you.
Retired SC Highway Patrol trooper shoots, kills home intruder in Bluffton. A retired S.C. Highway Patrol trooper shot and killed an intruder after a struggle in his Bluffton home early Wednesday [11/14/2012], according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office. Former trooper Lt. William "Chuck" Wise was attacked by a man attempting to break into his Palmetto Bluff Road home at 2:15 a.m. when Wise fired several shots, striking and killing him, investigators say. The body of 39-year-old Paul Edward Rowell was found in the main entryway, the Sheriff's Office said.
Homeowner fatally shot attacker, another suspect flees, police say. A Palm Beach Gardens man was found dead in front of a Holly Hill home Friday night [11/16/2012], and investigators say he is one two suspects that tried to rob the house.
12-Year-Old Defends Herself with Gun. This past Wednesday [10/17/2012] a young 12-year old girl in Bryan County, Oklahoma was able to protect her life when an intruder kicked in her back door and entered her house. Frantically, she called her mother who advised her to grab their household gun, hide in the closet, and call 911. The intruder made his way through the house, and as he was opening the door of the closet, the young girl shot him through the closet door. The intruder left the house and the girl was found unharmed. The police arrived and took the man into custody.
'I aimed right for his heart'. A 92-year-old war veteran who shot dead an intruder at his home says he has only one regret that he didn't shoot the alleged burglar's accomplices. Earl Jones from Boone County, Kentucky, killed Lloyd (Adam) Maxwell after the intruder broke into his home at 2am on Monday [9/2/2012] with two accomplices.
Armed bystander stops stabbing outside school. A woman is in critical condition after she was stabbed outside her child's school Tuesday morning.[...] Police say a bystander who happened to be a concealed handgun license holder pulled his weapon and ordered [Roberto] Barron to drop the knife.
Another Old [Man] Steps In To Save A Life. This time in Early, Texas. This was remarkably good shooting by the hero. He must practice a lot. If not for his interference others would have died.
65-year-old woman thwarts robbery on jewellery store. Five armed men who attempted to rob a jewellery store were left scrambling for the door when a 65-year-old woman opened fire on them. The handgun-wielding thieves, clad in hoodies, were forced to flee Continental Jewelry in Garden Grove, California, after the woman chased after them last week.
What Gun Haters Don't Want You to Know. The other side of the gun rights argument is that guns save lives. A 65 year-old female jewelry store owner singlehandedly chased off five masked thugs who were robbing her Greenwich store. She fired two shots in the air as she ran after them. They were knocking into each other trying to get out the door.
Thanks for the post . In Dallas we had a burglar lock his self in the bathroom and call 911 to come and get him so he wouldn't be shot by the home owner :)

We're talking about the leader of our country. If we can't protect the POTUS, then no one is really safe and that means no one. The Sandy Hook massacre and others similar to it is a horrific tragedy. Everyone realizes that. It's crucial and vital for schools to have better methods and procedures to alerting staff and emergency personnel as quickly as possible if an emergency should arise. Mental health in this country can not and should not be ignored either. You get what you give. Do nothing, and we all suffer the consequences.
POTUS is replaceable, our children aren't.

There's around 300 million guns in this country yet you never hear about citizens stopping these murder sprees. Mostly they're shooting kids that look 'suspicious'- their own or someone else's returning from a store. And they're talking on Topix about what they 'can' or 'will' do...
That's because the Mainstream Media doesn't report those instances.

<quoted text>You've already been corrected on that, Crain. The kid was out of ammo, done shooting, and leaving the scene. Why do you always forget that part?

How come the guy with the CCW didn't stop the shooter at the Gabby Giffords incident? It was in Arizona- the entire state is a Free Fire Zone.

Crain, this is so simple! Our gun nuts CANNOT defend us from other gun nuts! Chances are that one of them that *might* would instead admire or critique the shooters choice of weapons before actually doing anything to stop the situation.

Gun free zones stymieing people? There's 'speed limits' on our roads so, no one ever speeds, right?
The guy was headed to the middle school to donut again when stopped.

When I see statements such as this one; Let me say, I bet YOU would be mighty thankful, possibly understanding of the person that used THEIR gun to SAVE YOU. YOUR statement makes me laugh. I bet You would hug, hold and praise the person that was COWARD enough to save YOUR BABY or FAMILY or FRIENDS. YOU are the coward in my opinion. You have a mouth and a right to say that YOU are BRAVE enough to say that you are one. It's nice to know that YOU, and I do know of others, that find some sort of pride saying they WILL NOT protect. With an attitude such as yours, how do you make your loved ones feel you would assist them in any type situation? Or do you even try? Nice on a keyboard, huh? Expressing yourself.

If you don't like guns and don't want private citizens to own them, then please post a sign in front of your residence saying this home is gun free.

No, just say we don't have guns. Maybe they have a knife or two.

Using your line of reasoning each of us can make a list of what we see no need for and say, why do you need this, I don't, so you shouldn't have it....
Very true. To each his own. I don't drink but I don't say they should not make wine glasses or shot glasses. Nonsmokers don't bellyach about matches or cigarette lighters. Happy New Year

There are rural areas around here that if you called 911 it would take 20 minutes or more for help to arrive. Meanwhile you are fending off the attacker with what ,a baseball bat,or a golf club ? Hope you have a plot picked out to be planted in.

Wait a minute now- rural areas are bucolic little slices of wonderfulness where everyone gets along because all are armed to the teeth, walking with Jesus and united behind their love for our nation's wealthiest and their well-studied contempt for Black presidents.

So, why involve the POlice anyway?
