Mentally ill people are being turned away, without adequate care. This has been the result, of ballooning budgets. They seem only to get attention when they report to hospital staff, that the voices are telling them to kill everybody in the hospital. Read the story of John Hyde, from Albuquerque. Perfect example of a mentally ill person giving warning after warning, and no one listened. Eight randon people bit the bullet on that one.
Lets see, if we outlaw all guns for non-law enforcement, only police and criminals will have guns. Since there are a hell of a lot more criminals than police, the average citizen will be subject to the whims of criminals who have guns. Generally, police are reactive---they respond to crimes. Once you are the victim of a homicide, the arrival of police at the scene will do you no good. If you had a gun, you might not be the victim of a homicide. But wags, the dog, thinks it is better that you lose your protection so that the criminals will keep killing children---and maybe you, too.
Go to hell stupid idiot. don't even have the guts to post insane #$%$ like this. For your info, hand guns are banned in Mexico. It is still the murder capital of the world. #$%$? this #$%$ me off so bad. Blaming the gun instead of the #$%$ #$%$ who did this. No, we don't need to bad any guns. we need to ban the dark culture, goths weirdos and plain demon posessed people in this country that are likely to do this kind of #$%$.
I think its great we can spend $1 Billion per day fighting for oil but not one penny can make its way into a school for the simple tactic of protecting our innocent children.
Guns for administrators and metal detectors at all doors.
Good post. Shows the irrational emotions that are involved in this issue. It's much much much easier to blame the guns than to look at the deteriorating conditions in this country that will be leading to accelerating crime levels. Having said that, there is no reason why schools shouldn't have armed security guards, just like many banks and large corporate buildings have. Aren't children worth protecting from insane criminals? Those who will give up a little freedom for a little more security, deserve neither.
