"Texas Gov. Rick Perry indicated Monday that he supported allowing teachers and administrators to carry concealed handguns in response to the Connecticut school massacre that left 20 children dead."

Can anybody show me any evidence that an armed civilian HAS EVER, anywhere, prevented or even had any affect on a mass shooting?

On the other hand, there is a lot of evidence, including the shooting in Connecticut, that gun owners often are killed with the very guns they purchased.

That's an ignorant question for many reasons. How many mass shootings have been averted because of the presence of armed citizens? You can't measure that, can you? Mass shootings take place where guns aren't allowed and the shooters know that. Where's the best place to kill as many people as possible with no resistance? You don't win this battle by taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Instead, we honor the right of every man and woman to protect themselves and their families and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers who, by the way, have established a government that has stood for well over 200 years.

Most people ignore researcher and his febrile leftwing ravings - forgive me I couldn't resist.

Pearl High School 1997

"The incident began on the morning of October 1, 1997 when Luke Woodham fatally stabbed and bludgeoned his mother, Mary Woodham, as she prepared for a morning jog. At his trial, Woodham claimed that he could not remember killing his mother.

Woodham drove his mother's car to Pearl High School. Wearing a trench coat, to hide his rifle when he entered the school, Woodham fatally shot Lydia Kaye Dew and Christina Menefee, his former girlfriend. Pearl High School's assistant band director, Jeff Cannon, was standing five feet away from Dew when she was fatally shot. Woodham went on to wound seven others.

The school's assistant principal, Joel Myrick, retrieved a .45 pistol from his truck and, spotting him near the parking lot, shouted for Woodham to stop. Woodham instead got into a his mother's car and tried to escape. Myrick, a US Army Reserve commander, detained Woodham until authorities arrived."

So much for your BUNK researcher.

The trouble with arming teachers is that teachers go haywire too. In addition, first grade teachers don't have the type of mind set to be able to carry a weapon, and putting hundreds of thousands of guns inside schools increases exponentially the chance that a student will get his hands on one.

Correct.

"Studies show that a gun in a family's home is 12 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO RESULT IN THE DEATH OF HOUSEHOLD MEMBER than of an intruder.

"It also increases the chance of suicide.

"...the facts...dispel the ILLUSION THAT GUNS MAKE YOU SAFER."

Source: NYTIMES.COM , by Timothy Egan "Why we can't discuss gun violence"

And STILL, nobody has come up with any EVIDENCE that an armed civilian has EVER prevented, stopped or even affected a mass shooting.

EVIDENCE, anyone? I'm still interested in finding some.

Quite a few indivdual incidents can be found,but I suspect most packers are in it for themseles. They wouldn't save anyone if it put them at risk. As for buying weapons now. Smart move. Like filling a warehouse with incadescent lightbulbs would have been a few decades ago, or recharges for the Mercury AC.

What I am saying direcly is if given a chance to stop the slaughter of a first grade, if they had to face fire, most of them would slink away. They stress over and over the guns are for PERSONAL protection.

And if they are claiming to stand as an unofficial army to protect the public, aren't they then a militia? Hmm, what do you suppose the founders faced after a revolution? And the words -- "well regulated"?

"The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it."

Why don't you explain something to all us, genius ? If somebody prevented or stopped a "mass shooting", then it wouldn't be a mass shooting now would it ?

A great deal of these mass shooting psychos target "gun-free" zones like the theatre in Aurora and the school in Newton Conneticut. All of our mass murders in the last 20 years have occurred in Gun Free Zones - thanks to *ssholes like you with no brain who have actuaslly contributed to mass shootings by giving the shooters a safe haven to commit their acts.

What you are not bright enough to realize is that YOU are kept safer by others who HAVE guns. Don't believe me ? Put a sign out in front of your residence that proclaims to everyone that you do not have a gun. If you are not willing to do that, you are just another hypocritical liberal with a big mouth and no brain.
