Yours is a very good idea, but unfortunately impossible.
Guns are available in every large city from street suppliers, even gun shops have no way of telling the insane from the sane, background checks do not say “this guy is a nut”, also many guns are stolen by burglars, in spite of being locked away.
There are millions of guns in this country both legal and illegal, it is impossible to keep them away from a person dead set on getting one for their nefarious purposes.
Even in cities such as New York where guns are practically totally illegal it is easy to get a weapon if one wants it.
We have hundreds of gun laws on the books and still crazed people get guns. No law can be made that would make it impossible to get a gun.Even if guns were outlawed, a perso who wish’s to kill can go on the internet or his l;ibraray and learn to make a bomb.Gasoline is sold on every corner and fire is deadly. Knives, hatchets, axes, ice picks are all easily gotten and all can be deadly.
The problem is not with guns ,but with crazed maniacs,and criminals who use them or any other means to kill .
The guns did it silly! //sarc off//
People following a false prophet? Anything might happen. They might do anything.
What makes you think there is a difference between the two?
Or the students. I routinely carried a .22 pump action to elementary school. It stood in the corner of the classroom all day. My buddies and I would go hunt rabbit at the playa lake 1/2 mile from the school after class.
Graduated to a .30-.30 in Jr. High (roughly 1965), when we all got little Yamaha 80's and could travel out to the sandhills to stalk coyote and antelope.
I guess I'm a fossil.
>> but unfortunately impossible.
Agreed. The citizens need to be armed and trained to respond to assaults. Period.
These type of shootings usually involve people who have emotional problems and on meds. Subway pusher in NYC was a nut loose on the streets. To prevent this is not by eliminating the gun, because a nut can do the same damage with a huge knife and fashioned sharp edge club. If violent nuts are incarcerated in hospitals or individuals who cannot take their meds in a responsible manner should be institutionalized. To be merciful to nuts is to be cruel to the normals.
Ann Blake-Tracy has a site on SSRI’s
no we have to outlwaw subways that the problem not the pusher....
In the mostly lilly white suburban school district I live in, we have one SRO, who I also happen know socially. He's a good guy and no doubt a tough cop in the closing years of his career. He's a real cop on the local force assigned full-time to the school district.
Most of his time is spent at the High School, although he does go to the one Jr. High and makes stops at elementary schools for presentations and such just to meet with the kids and let them get to know him.
His real job is to let kids first of all know a cop and be friends with him, and then to council those few individual kids who are headed for serious problems and divert them to a better way.
It is not a low wage security force like they have in the city schools who don't really give a s**t. It's one guy (a very good guy BTW) for an entire district with eight school building spread over a 25 square mile area.
As good as I believe this guy is, he could not have stopped what happened today because odds are, he would have been miles away at a different school when it happened.
Neither, I fear. A person withn a death wish will not be deterred by deadly force. Although that might reduce the body count.
Ever consider that Satan might be behind the radical Islamists for whom death of infidels is victory, even if the infidels are little kids?
Islam = Satan
Unfortunately I have. I did a study on it and the most foul acts committed on children by terrorists I have read in years outside of what happened in Rwanda. The Russian’s learned the hard way what corruption and hatred will do and so will we when that level of murder and madness arrives here in the States. The Russian government did not change the laws, they only got nastier and more vindictive in their persecution of the Chechnyans.
Nice to see the SWAT and cops all decked out in their armor and high-powered weapons, BUT, as always in these scenarios, THEY ARE TOO LATE!!!!
They come after the fact and the psychos know it!!!!
I assume it is a “safe” image of one the r*ped and murdered children?
psycho killer. Quest que c’est?
We were still able to take guns to school for hunting into the early 80s. If we drove they had to stay in the car and they couldn’t go on the bus so a parent had to bring us and the weapon had to stay in the prinicipal’s office during the day.
On opening day it looked like an armory.
The system of protecting children with fire arms seems to work in Israel.
YES! FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT!!
YES! FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT!!
Read my tagline.
“It certainly wasnt something we worried about when I was in school in the early 80s.”
Or when I was in school in the early 40s and teaching school in the mid fifties. When I look back on those days it seems like another world.
This wasn't a sudden or spontaneous act. This was planned.
The thing is, somebody close to this punk had to have seen something was way off.
Too many friends and relatives are in denial about possible mental illness afflicting those closest to them.
I now think that it is time that killers like this not be named in the press or any other place with their bodies cremated and spread in anonymous locations. They should forever be erased from all documents and their names never again mentioned. Infamy is the legacy that many seek. They must be forgotten not given fame.
I just wish these deluded idiots that decide they want to go out taking as many people as possible with them would choose a more suitable target. Let’s say the headquarters office of one of the 3 alphabet networks......
I agree...in about 1952, I took a .22 rifle to school to trade it for a quart jar of .22 bullets that another student had. There we stood, a quart of ammunition and a gun, we could have wiped out half the neighborhood. The principal knew what we were doing and merely had us secure the stuff in our lockers....no swat teams involved.
No. She worked there as either a teachers aide or a sub.
He probably had her pass.
It depends on the district. In ours, there is an SRO for each campus and they are in the prime of their career.
since this story broke this morning, I have not seen a picture of the perp...
