    Just sell more guns. Without limit. To anyone.

    On Friday we will hear the NRA ride its hobbyhorse. “Guns will prevent shootings.” Just sell more guns.

    Charles,

    You keep speaking of mentality in your posts, of which you seem to have little.

    A gun in the hands of a competant person deters more massacres than a dozen locked doors in schools. Think about it, you see schools with no guns allowed signs. So if you are the nut case, you take your gun and go there and nothing to worry about. You have signs saying an armed guard protects this school and those cowards will avoid the school like the plague. In this day and age, I think it is the ONLY sane answer. Scott

    Charles mentality is simple:

    1. Something bad happened

    2. I hate you

    3. It's your fault.

    I believe that the NRA is the only show in town.

    However, they have suffered from some of their leaders. George Bush, one of the greatest supporters of the 2nd Amendment resigned his life membership.

    I dont know what the exact path the NRA takes here but it is critical that all gun owners influence them. The word All is the important word there.

    An interesting theme might be to get kids out into a productive shooting sport, rather than playing violent video games

    I believe the training component is missing in America, we used to train kids on firearms even in the YMCA, FTA, Boyscouts, FFA, ....etc

    Just sell more guns. More guns will prevent shooting. Tune in tomorrow.

    Could be a profit motive? Looks like some on TS.com bought the NRA buggy ride.

    Read what Ann Coulter has to say on the subject at the URL above. She makes a lot of sense and backs her conclusions with facts.

    Some "bad", sick, evil person does something terrible, so we as a liberal society can't blame people so we must blame things. What happened in that school isn't the problem it's the symptom of the problem. That being the (planned) moral decay of our society.

    Other aspects overlooked, IMO: 1. Those committing these henious crimes are not insane in a legal sense, but almost always have huge mental health issues. Often, if medicated, they skip taking their drugs and become violent.

    2. Too often guns in the greater environment of the "crazies" are unsecured.

    3. "Buying more guns" per se won't help; however professionally trained personnel in a school can obviously deter crime and reduce the rate of injuries and death if the unthinkable happens. I worked in a school district that employed a campus police on all campuses from middle through high school, and these individuals were always armed.

    However, one person with one handgun alone can't insure total safety. Many schools also need better architecture and layout to prevent unwanted ingress in the first place after school is in session. I honestly used to sometimes worry about catching a stray bullet entering my first floor office window when I worked in the inner city. But we have also witnessed shootings in affluent, "nice" suburban and urban areas.

    4. I also am a bit put off that the shooter was labeled as having "Asperger's Syndrome". Most "Aspy" kids are not violent, the overwhelming majority. He very likely had severe mental health issues, outside of Asperger's if we can label Asperger's as a mental health affliction. In many cases, it is not, any more so than a typical neurosis. I feel this is a slight towards individuals who are "Aspy" and to their honorable and caring parents.

    I do hope that this situation will be met by clear heads who are willing to act and not react; sudden and new gun control laws won't solve the problem nor will a sudden influx of armed teachers. I feel if armed protection in schools in increased, such protection shall be in the hands of trained professionals and/or paraprofessionals. No one tactic will solve the problem; but after the shock is over, I feel the entire picture of seemingly unprovoked violence needs to be addressed, and it "ain't by any means entirely about the gun"; IMO it is about why too many reach out to injure and spontaneously kill anybody in their proximity.

    The NRA has never advocated selling guns to anyone. I've been a member of the NRA (and proud of it) for over 40 years and have never heard that from their platform, legal action, nor officials. I guess by you referring to anyone includes me. I am like many who buy guns legally in this country as follows: (1) respect law enforcement; (2) respect constitutional rights; (3) believe that the intent of the 2nd Amendment was to guarantee a free individual; (3) love the shooting sports and participates frequently; (4) believe that people, not the firearm, commit crimes; (5) work hard and don't believe the government should take care of them; (6) wants the shooting sports to be the same for their children & grandchildren; (7) currently owns a shotgun, rifle (yes, including an AR-15 if they desire), or pistol, and have never committed an illegal act with these firearms; and the list goes on. Call me "anyone" but to you it's Mr. Anyone. BT100dc

    BT-100dc,

    Exactly! How anyone could view your beliefs as unreasonable is beyond me.


    It is not lawful gun owners committing these crimes. Murder is already illegal, why did that be illegal stop someone from still committing the crime.

    I invite those advocating appeasing the anti's to turn THEIR guns in first.

    Come on, you want others to "take one for the team", show us some leadership and turn YOUR guns in first as an example for others to follow.
