Damn - any chance you can speed up your roll?

Believe I already mention it wouldn't hurt my feelings if major restrictions were put on owning assault weapons (riffle / machine gun type) and 30 round clips aren't necessary.

If given the opportunity to vote specifically against those two things, I would vote in favor to doing away with them. However, like I pointed out earlier, our government usually goes beyond the scope of such restrictions and this will probably be where many will have the problem.

Personally, I doubt very seriously if the current Administration can get this up for a vote during the next term......a lame duck President with nothing to gain trying to persuade a Congress who will be facing a new election. Good or bad as shown at EVERY opportunity in the past, Congressmen will favor in the way of the $$$ and guns have the $$$.

"American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten has described the call to station guards with guns at schools "both irresponsible and dangerous."

In a written statement issued Friday, Weingarten said, "Schools must be safe sanctuaries, not armed fortresses. Anyone who would suggest otherwise doesn't understand that our public schools must first and foremost be places where teachers can safely educate and nurture our students."

The school district where my kids attended / currently attend has had it's own police force for several years now. Understand, just because they are a I.S.D. police force, they still have full right to make arrest, issue citations and pull drivers over away from I.S.D. property. Local courts see no difference between a I.S.D. police force or a City Of police force.

Not once when entering my child's school have I ever felt like I was entering a fortress because I saw a police officer in the hallway. And guess what, not once have I ever felt like my childs school was a hospital becuase there is a nurse who has an office : )

I believe EVERY school is a safe sanctuary......until someone from the outside shoots out the glass door and enters without any possibility of anyone stopping him. Now, I do know of a few schools in Houston and I bet there several where SuchFriends lives where the school fence / walls are topped by razor wire......mostly to keep vandals out.....from the outside, these do appear to be fortresses.

It says alot how every time these things happen the gunman is either killed by the police or his own hand, almost never by the fantasy Lone Ranger bystander with a handgun.

EXACTLY - when that teacher hid all her students in cubby holes and closets, she could have had a little something EXTRA for that nut when he entered her classroom instead of just saying, "they're in the gym." She could have shot and killed him first, saving her life and the lives of the children in the next classroom.

Personally, I feel that any teacher who can react fast enough to hide her students is sensible enough to remove a hand gun from a safe and use it in the right way when the gunman enters her classroom.

OR she gets shot first, he comes into the classroom, finds all the kids and theres 20 more dead children. Id say theres a 50/50 chance of that, and id err on the side of hiding the kids rather than taking out the gun. Do you want all your schoolteachers militarised? a loaded handgun in their desk?

In that situation the gun would have to be within quick, easy access to the teacher for the fantasy OK Corall scenario. And therefore in quick, easy access to the students as well, every single day. The killer got his guns where he knew he could find them; his mothers own stash. You think kids wouldnt be able to get into teachers cabinet if they really wanted to?

or the teacher is the person that has a psychotic episode and decides to kill a bunch of kids and has access to a handgun.

yeah, but how do you know this teacher wouldn't become mentally unstable at one point and capable of losing her mind because of "shitty hyped up surgar addicted ADD students" and capping every last one of her pupils?

oh, i guess it depends on the region? <<< which is nonsense because the students would be aware of this considering how/or what enviroment they grew up in?

but this happened in a small cookie and coffee shop loving connecticut new england town?.
how could this have happened?

i say ban all automatic assault rifles and do a very very very extensive background check on the ones who purchase this or that or any other so-called sporting gun rifles..... shot guns, pistols....etc.

but...

no american should own these automatics!!!!!!


i don't really shoot or own a gun or understand the laws to possess one. i should, but maybe i'm not a man slaughtering machine like an automatic.


are assault rifles considered hunting rifles? is so. that's fucked up.

i say we take action now, but most americans don't trust america and that's a different story that i can back up.

impending doom or a foreign attack. i'm trained. are you?

So many offered up: "WHAT IF's."

The State / Federal Government has criteria / background checks one must pass before issuing a conceal carry license. Ideally, someone who is mentally unstable would be weeded out. SURE - a teacher who is stable now may become unstable 5 years from now, so teachers who want to conceal carry on campus may need to be held to a higher level of scrutiny of yearly checks.

I do think it's important we all realize that any teacher at any time could bring a gun to school and shoot up the place. Just think of the thousands and thousands of teachers who have handguns at home, any morning they could place that gun on their person and enter the school. Best I can remember is no teacher has ever shot up her class room, but it has ALWAYS BEEN a possibility.

In the scenario I provided in the previous post, the teacher who reacted in time to hide her students would then have time to retrieve her gun......best case scenario being the students never see her holding the gun. Excuse me, but ONLY A FOOL would think said teacher would keep a weapon just lying in a desk or cabinet drawer - ABSOLUTELY NOT!

There would be requirements to keep it in a fingerprint safe that was mounted to the floor or wall.

 

These type safes are so well built you could spend the entire day with crowbar trying to gain entry and you would end up with tired hands and a wasted day. One manufacture use to offer a one-hundred thousand dollar reward for anyone who could gain entry using nothing but a crowbar or sledgehammer.

you actually introduced the "what ifs" with your fantasy land where every teacher has a weapon so dont you get all high and mighty about that.

Anyway, a teachers sanity should not be weighed up after we've put a handgun in his hand. In the UK we have had ONE definite case of a police officer wrongly killing a civilian with a gun in my whole life. You can trust the police with guns if they know that other people arent likely to have them.

As for what you say about the teacher who hid her students. She didnt have a fucking gun, she hid the kids away and saved their lives. What if the teacher ISNT a quick thinking, dynamic person in that scenario? You wanna train your teachers as if theyre prison guards? Theres a nice old saying Americans have that says "Give me liberty or give me death". Maybe the best way of preventing the last of those is stopping people having stashes of deadly firearms in their houses. Just a thought.

Upwards of 40% (!!!) of the firearms sold in America annually. This is a loophole that needs to be closed but too many "guns' rights" folks resist even this simple task. So we have a myth that guns are strictly controlled through background checks when the reality is their not. Further, US arms retailers report 30,000 missing or stolen firearms to the ATF each year, that just what they bother to report. As to carrying permits, I think no body realistically wants schoolteachers to be armed, the reasonable compromise is to put armed police in every single one of 99,000 public schools in America. While it is plausible, it seems honestly ridiculous. Further, big surprise the NRA would promote a plan that essentially says, "Hey, go out and buy 100,000 guns for the schools."

So would you really trust your kids' schoolteachers in a shootout not to hit your own children in the crossfire? That is the Pandora's Box about this issue, it would be all the worse a tragedy if school teachers or just armed citizens accidentally harm or kill innocent people in the crossfire. And no, I don' condone or forgive people for such accidents in the name of trying to help. Helping is automatically negated when such assistance results in grievous bodily harm or worse, death and loss of life.
