Very much agree!
And, it is my considered opinion, for what that might be worth, that everyone should be made to pay the full price for their lack of preparation which they could have been making long before any particular situation arrived.
Of course, if one is dirt poor, and cannot afford certain things, then I consider them to be exempt from that, as long as their predicament lasts.

Maybee if it wasnt he would have then just opened fire from under his car on the playground with the Bushmaster during recess.
He was a suicide. Fear of being shot was not in his reasoning. But he had access to weapons that allow him to formulate tactics.
Jared Loughner was in a CCW area. He was one. He had wrapped his ID in a plastic bag so he could be Identified. He was only stopped when he had to reload. And there was a CCW man in the vicinity. But a little old lady got him with her handbag. But not before he did some damage with his Glock 19.
Possibly, but then if it wasn't a gun free zone, principal Joe Rambo and assistant principal Ms Ann Oakley might have whacked him ,his auto, and his Bushmaster at 500 yards with their school issued, taxpayer funded, Barrett .50 cal sniper rifles. No one said armed guards or armed teachers or ccw permits are the only answers but disarming the victims is low on my list of solutions.

You can choose not to agree with guns and think no one should own them, that is your choice. You can also choose not to believe in God, that also is your choice. But the first two things you unarmed idiots do when an armed criminal breaks into your house is call someone with a gun like the police, and then pray they get there in time!
You live in very special universe where stupidity and ignorance is a celebration. In reality, the universe most of us live in, armed home invasion is extremely rare. If you let the NRA do your thinking, which obviously you do happily, you believe we 8,000 plus home invasions occur in North America every day – North America? Including Canada and Mexico? Every day? The fact is, no one has these statistics, not even the FBI. Moreover, according to police statistics and judging from the nationwide RSS feed posting every day on Home Invasion News, we aren’t seeing less than a hundred home invasions! The home defense industry has taken up with the NRA and amplified it so much out of proportion that it morphs into a totally new (and quasi-mythical) creature.

As usual, the gun-a-holics take a sentence out of an entire speech and completely turn it on its head with their pathetic and never-ending propaganda lies. To put Gandhi’s words in context: "Arms" in his speech were military arms not the personal weapons of private individuals. The context of "depriving of the whole nation of arms" was the refusal of the British to conscript Indians into the British Army during the First World War. Gandhi was an extreme anti-militarist. He used the circumstance for political purposes to advance the cause of Home Rule and Independence.

Froggy said I was a pedophile. I thought only men were. Women never go after little kids, but the men seem to enjoy it. Froggy?
