The idea of armed guards at elementary schools is so idiotic I can't even believe it was proposed.

Concealed weapons in bars and on college campuses, large quantity magazines, lock down procedures for kindergartners, legislation to allow guns on the private property of others against their will, it's all just totally nuts.

I spend a lot of time in Ecuador. Every bank, hospital, mall, and school, etc., is guarded my armed personnel.

It works.

Exactly. I've been to lots of third world countries that have armed guards everywhere. I'd like to think I'm not living in one.

Righto. Long have I suspected the agenda of conservatives is to bleed this country into the third world. Never have I seen such obvious proof of it though!

Hey, what's wrong with armed guards? What's wrong with getting your food from the back of a U.N. truck? Hey, it works in Africa!

F*#k.

I think what we must face is the fact that the world in which we live is growing more and more evil by the day.

After 9-1, we have had to grow accustomed to the TSA in our airports. Perhaps this evil of shooters killing our kids is yet one more thing we have to combat, just like those terrorists.

The world is failing, and we have to find a way to fight that.

Would anyone here, who have children, be ok with Ron Anderson, or cragman being armed at your kids school?

We have to start the dialog on limiting 1st Amendment rights. The media has for too long been allowed to fill the minds of potential mass killers with unrestrained images of violence and mayhem. They are also allowed to make instant celebrities of of these killers for naked profit.

soo, take away the pens and let 'em have their swords...

that'll work...

Everyone here is looking at a picture, some say it's clearly white and others say its as black as deep space.

Unfortunately it's grey, all grey through and through and a hundred variations, too.

Armed guards are a good idea some places, some times. Some guns are awesome and we should have some of them in society. Some regulation is needed, and some people will gun down schools.

We keep trying to paint with a broader brush, when we are uniquely f*#ked.


As long as guns exist there will be people that will do this. Now we're back to playing that old game of trading freedoms for safety. I f*#king hate it. I don't own guns but lots of friends do... They wouldn't want me to lose climbing, and guns are their passion.


Around and around we go, circling our children's graves with our picket signs and dogma.

I've yet to see an armed guard in a bank in the US.

Maybe you're living in the wrong place?

Didn't someone mention a few days ago that the gun manufacturers would be pushing into the education market?

It's all about sales.

One can't help but observe the selective use of various types of logic here:

"Take a away the guns and they will just use a knife, or find some means to manufacture a bomb. It doesn't matter the type of firearm, a revolver or high-capacity semi-automatic, the killers will find a way..."

These killers are so crafty and resourceful - they will find a way around every obstacle to achiece their goals.

But apparently none of them would ever figure out that they would just need to shoot the guard first.

ive suggested this before,, but there is this gubbment org known as "HOME land security"...If they REALLY wanted to secure our "home land" how about they raise the cap and pony up some guards instead of flying HELOS all over the place? Or setting up "sting ops" withe the USFWS over 2 dead turkey skins from Mexico..

That is only true if we ignore just about all of history.

Even if one read nothing but the Bible, they would find ample evidence that the world is a far more peaceful and harmonious place today than it ever has been.

Cragman, I thought this a fairly alarming statement. I'm not sure what you are alluding to exactly but I thought at least one measure might be this:

http://www.systemicpeace.org/conflict.htm

Which dosn't jive much with your statement, except perhaps for the "International Terrorism" trends.
Which is interesting as the increase in "Domestic Terrorism" which these mass killings are, is somewhat parallel.

At any rate, what exactly were you talking about? The world has a bumpy road but it dosn't seem to be in any immediate death spiral, in fact statistically just the opposite it could be argued.

How about we designate one day a year as "National Shoot Somebody Day"?

Just have a 24 hour free-for-all where all of the gun nuts, crazies, mother rapers, daddy haters and doomsday preppers can blast away with unfettered glee.

A win-win on a lot of levels - population reduction, economic upsurge for Walmarts, release of pent up tensions, fodder for any number of reality shows on TLC.

I would set the tag limit at one person apiece just so we show we are still civilized.

I get the feeling that Dean wants to see anyone he perceives as a threat gone. Poof. Magic god stuff. Gone.

Edit; I could be wrong. I've never met the guy, and I do respect him. We just have vastly different opinions on this issue.
