It was a horrific thing!<quoted text>
Me too, CD. It was horrific. EVER. Didn't stop weeping until after xmas. Still can't really talk out loud about it. I just can't even imagine what those poor mothers are dealing with. I have to say thankfully they all have other children they have to support and help heal. I am sure that makes a difference for them. So very sad. I was watching the two little boys I take care of playing the other day and it crossed my mind how horrible it would be for either one of them to be without the other. And all of this because arrogant, ignorant, irresponsible, people want to own weapons of mass destruction and corporations want to get rich selling them. It can not be allowed to continue.
That day as I picked up my 5 year old little girl from school, it hit me hard and I cried thinking about those who would not be picking up their kids.
I to was angry, and was glad the cops got there as soon as they did.
So the evil coward decided to shoot himself, becouse he knew what was comming through the doors was not little children with no way to protect themselves.
I realize people truly believe if all guns are banned, then there would be no more gun violence, but that is just wrong.
The evil ones that make their plans, do not make plans on going to where guns are, they makes plans on schools or movie places "that ban guns "from their places of business.
I am all for background checks, and even waiting periods before taking a gun home, even smaller clips, if it would help. I would throw away all of my guns if I believed no other kids would never be killed by guns, but I know it wouldn't.
Clips are nothing but sheet metal and a spring, that pushes up the next bullet. I just bought a high powered rifle, that has a clip (it holds 4 shells), if I keep 1 in the fire position, then it will hold 5 rounds.
I could make a clip for this gun, that could hold 10 rounds, without a whole lot of trouble.
Yet the right to bear arms is there.
If it is ever made to where guns are no longer legal to own, then you might as well throw away all this country was founded on.
ALL things "including abortion rights " would be in question.
