Someday when I'm bored out of my freaking mind you're gonna have to tell me how aliens fit into the biblical narrative.
It's 1 thing to be sarcastic & have history & fact behind you. It's another to be sarcastic & dumb, def, & blind... Oh did I mention ignorant? The bible does speak on aliens numerous times. It's evident you haven't read it. All through the torah. From God saying that humans are his greatest creation to a chariot of fire descending from the sky. In every religion, they speak of aliens in one form another. Most peoples problem with the biblical/alien thing is trying to differentiate fallen angels & aliens. Genesis 6;4 states not in these words that angels fell from heaven, & dicided to lay with women & in doing so had babies in which they call the nephilim. A race of giants by my understanding whom we call the greek gods. Point is read & research before you judge someone by their faiths & beliefs.

Huh, wonder if you can get some kind of premium for renting to sex offenders? We're renting our Boca house to a gay couple and they wrote us an offer letter several hundred a month over what we were going to list it for and they've never been late or anything. Our neighborhood seems to be going that route anyway. By the time we moved out there was a female couple next door and a male couple over the back fence. They made the best neighbors.
THAT'S WHY I LOVE GAY PEOPLE!!!
A sex offender in FLA could be a gal who got wasted and showed her tertz at bike week twenty years ago. Florida does a pizz poor job of writing laws which used to be OK because the popo didn't enforce most of them.

New day and with the sunshine law thing there is no place to run or hide anymore__so you better be good or your mug shot will live forever in Florida's hall of shame__even if a jury eventually finds you not guilty.

The details of his thoughts are the real point, aren't they? After all, guns don't kill people, people do. I never said that the American populace isn't desensitized through movies, television, social networking, music, video games. You somehow cling to the hypothesis that it is a sure certain absolute fail-proof bet that an armed security guard would have prevented or changed that day. Sadly, we'll never know - and by "we" I include you. What I do know is that he knew the school, and that even a deranged madman would tactically understand to take out the security guard first.
You are partially correct. He's dead, so we can't study him to determine what he most likely would have done.
However, we do have similar cases to compare. All such cases have the fact that they killer selected what they thought were defenseless victims. Of the many cases we have to reference, I am not aware of one case where the killer defeated armed security to commit their murders. I am aware of the usual case where when armed security arrives, they kill themselves. I think it is a logical conclusion that they will avoid armed security, and seek only defenseless victims.
When there is a case where someone defeats armed security to commit mass the murder of victims made defenseless by the killer's defeat of the armed security, then your argument will have credence. It has no credence when all like cases are the killer selecting what they think are defenseless victims. They kill themselves when another gun shows up.
Thus, if an armed guard were present, this would almost certainly never have happened.

your list has been noted, and will be taken into account when the black helicopter shows up to take you to the FEMA camp in Wyoming/North Korea.
and how much ammo do you have?
Just enough for myself. I don't plan on engaging in protracted firefights. If your ability to maneuver is taken away, you're done. It won't matter how much ammunition you have. And, I don't really need to burn up a lot of ammunition familiarizing myself with weapons. Just enough to make one or two trips a year to a range, but not enough to make me a target when order breaks down.
I guess I can tell you. This is a rough estimate.
500 rds 7.62 NATO (lifetime supply)
200 rds 7mm UM (lifetime supply)
200 rds .357 mag (lifetime supply)
25 rds 12 ga slugs (lifetime supply, I don't hunt deer)
50 rds 12 ga 00 buck (lifetime supply, I don't hunt deer)
25 rds 16 ga #1 buck (lifetime supply, I don't hunt deer)
150 rds 16 ga #4 (geese and duck)
25 rds 20 ga #3 buck (lifetime supply, I don't hunt deer)
100 rds 20 ga #6 (dove/quail/squirrel)

I always advise everyone I know that hording thousands of rounds of ammunition will only make them a target when order breaks down, which is what they fear.

For the competitive shooting enthusiast that commonly takes their piece to a range, burning a couple of hundred rounds a month is usual. For the person who is just playing, there isn't enough ammunition for them. Besides, that type of person won't be any help if you need them. And, they tend to be less disciplined and safe than I demand of people in my proximity carrying a firearm.

This is what I would suggest for anyone who already has a significant level of proficiency with firearms. If a person is developing proficiency, then there will be a rate of consumption to take into consideration.

We should ban all sports because some kids die. We already stopped you from buying 16oz soda because you might get fat.

Us Democrats know best! Look at what a great job I've done with solar and the debt! I forgot, so can anyone tell me why I won the Nobel peace Prize? Four more years!

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is better than the movie "Faces of Death". Funny every product you linked to is made outside the country.
