    Sadly yes, too bad if people were smart we would do something like switzerland and give everyone rifles. If we did that, and allowed concealed carry on campus I could guarentee this crap wouldnt happen, and if it did it wouldnt be a massacre...just a idiot getting shot.

    Stricter gun control will not stop such trajedies, here in the UK we had some of the tightest gunlaws (now even tighter) in the world but it did not stop Dunblane! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    To quote a gentleman on another forum "You're going to make Nancy Pelosi blush"

    This is not ammunition for gun control advocates.

    This IS why unrestricted carry, or repealing CCW restrictions in "Gun Free Zones" should be pursued.

    Creating "Gun Free Zones" creates shooting galleries, plain and simple.

    Gun Control laws wouldn't have prevented this, but another gun would have minimized it.

    The concept may make people cringe, but if we (ALL of society) would have taken a different view of gun ownership since conception, that point would be moot. Now were stuck trying to correct decades of complacency.

    My morning coffee was a little to strong today, so I'm in another opine mode, sorry if my "rhetoric" is getting to anyone, but I argue this stuff with some flaming gun control advocates at work every day.


    Whether you believe in Cain and Abel, or an evolved sense of hate; Man will always mistreat Man. I'm not too naive to see it, that's life.

    If you think there will always be an officer of the law to protect you, there are a number of people who unfortunately can't disagree. And its not the officer's fault. I'm not too naive to see it, that's our society.


    In War and Peace, Orwell wrote ,"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf"

    So, who are our rough men (women)? The last thing we need are laws restricting the people who, for personal or patriotic reasons feel compelled to defend themselves and those that want to sleep peaceably, God rest their souls.

    I saw a little bit of "GOOD MORNING AMERICA"(I think), This morning at a hospital while doing a Escorted trip, Anyway they had a band marching in the street???? In rememberance.....WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? Seemed to me the media lined up for a bowl game to talk about! They were talking about donating this and that....Sorry but donations dont replace the lives of Bright Young Americans(our future)....The sons and daughters of people like me and you....something about how the media covers these things just relly pisses me off! Maybe Im missing something but no amount of money or "Im sorry for your lose" will ever bring those fine young men and women back!

    Sorry guys, that hit a nerve! something just doesnt seem right about how some of these events are covered in the media.

    GUN CONTROL IN AMERICA.....WHAT CONTROL? ONLY PEOPLE THAT ARE CONTROLLED ARE THOSE THAT CHOSE TO ABIDE BY THE LAW....WE LOST THE TWIN TOWERS TO A BOX CUTTER!

    IM JUST GONE SHUT UP, SORRY!

    We got a local Representative pushing for more gun banning...In Louisiana...here is a few emails we swapped...Please feel free to email him if you like..


    __________________________________________________________
    The schools already prohibit possession of weapons in the dorm...but
    there is no consequence other than being put out of school. Did you know
    that, Sir?

    Is it really necessary to try and insult me by name-calling? I'd be
    happy to discuss this further, if you'd like....preferably in a civil
    way.

    Mr. Gallot,

    For pushing to make dorms even more "slaughter zone friendly" for the
    criminals, you sir, are an absolute idiot.

    Your idea of protecting people is not allowing them to arm themselves?
    Newsflash, 30+ dead in Virginia, guess how many had self defense
    weapons? ZERO. How stupid can you get?

    I read all the post to this subject. I am with you all the way.

    You have not ever heard of shooting at a gun show!
