I understand that some people get their rocks off by firing assault weapons, but I think that's a small price to pay to get them out of the wrong peoples hands.

That would be funny..... if people weren't dying left and right so a few folks can get their rocks off at the shooting range on the weekends with their big ol' guns!!!!

I guess the real message here is.......the rental car lobby sure could learn a lot from the gun toting lobby.

Of course, but I don’t think making them illegal will get them out of the wrong people’s hands. Isn’t that the whole point ?

It was already illegal for the kid to have that gun, already illegal to bring it to that school, and already illegal to kill 17 people. Why do so many people seem to feel that making the actual weapon illegal is suddenly going to fix all that ?

You're not seriously arguing that making those weapons illegal won't reduce the number of people that have them or the number of them out there....the "if you can't stop them all, then stop none of them" argument.

Again, I'l ask the question.....why should ANYONE be able to own those types of guns......good guys or bad?

The armed security guard stood outside FOR FOUR MINUTES?!?

I find this detail very disturbing and I am struggling with how I feel. Should I be angry that he totally abandoned the children he was paid to protect or should I be incredibly sad that the burden he will carry for the rest of his miserable life will probably destroy him?

Cops only like to have gunfights with unarmed people.
