    Connecticut has the 5th most stringent gun laws in the nation. However, it is legal for a private citizen to own a gun with a grenade launcher attached.
    As a cheerfully immature male, I like shooting guns. Long before Atari, bottles, clay pigeons, & other lifeless targets provided entertainment for bored southern youth on summer vacation days. For about a week, some of us tried learning to shoot from horseback, those of us who owned h horses who weren’t afraid of gunshots- funny memories there, dangerous in retrospect, but funny since no one got hurt. Btw, after wasting boxes of ammo, not one of us ever hit a target from a moving horse and only one of my friends hit one from a horse that was standing still.
    The gist of it is, I like guns as toys, as tools for hunting, and I like knowing where I can put my hands on one if someone is breaking into my home.
    The first night I moved into a trailer, my very first ‘home’ as an 18 yr old ‘adult’, a drunk man came to my door looking for his wife. The previous resident of my trailer had apparently moved away with said wife while the distraught husband was at sea in the navy. Unable to help him, he left and I went to bed. At 2 am, i heard noises at my door. Having no phone yet I grabbed my shotgun, laid on the floor and pointed the barrel up the hallway. Within seconds, the door to the trailer opened, and a pistol came through the door in the hand of my drunk neighbor, who was even more drunk. I ejected/reloaded a shell, a very distinctive noise and told the man to put the gun down on the counter and leave. I gave him his gun, but not the bullets,the next morning and told him if he didn’t pay to fix my door knob, i’d press charges. He gave me sixty dollars and I never saw him again. I am glad I didn’t have to pull the trigger, but I am also glad I had my gun.
    As Tigger says, alcohol kills more people than guns do, but I must add, guns and alcohol together is a very bad mix.
    I’m glad he didn’t have a grenade launcher.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Your comments are always well thought out and I appreciate them. As I have stated before, I support the right of people to protect their lives, property and persons. I am, what you would call, in the muddled middle far as gun rights are concerned.
    I personally place much of the blame of this attack on the mother. She basically had a small arsenal at home, accessible to a son she knew was mentally disturbed.
    Better security at school would of been a help. I am not saying teachers should be armed, but how about a properly trained armed guard with direct communications to the local authorities?
    Ironically, living in a large urban area means I do not need to arm myself for self protection but people in rural areas clearly need to take steps to prepare themselves since help maybe quite a distance away.

    Unfortunately, with school budgets what they are today, many schools would have to lay off a teacher in order to hire a full-time armed guard.

    Back when I was in a Homeowners Association, we paid off duty policemen $37.50 an hour for our special events or meetings where we expected to be threatened.
    That is more than the teachers make.

    The NYPD is paid $40 an hour for private detail duty. You will see NYC police officers in uniform in department stores and in banks that choose not to have an armor proof partition between customers and bank tellers. How much of that money is paid to the officers themselves, I don’t know.

    My grandfather trained bird dogs and horses. Blanks were fired around puppies and foals and none of my grandfather’s horses spooked at the sound of gunfire. Other horses quickly proved less….patient. Cutting horses were my favorite to ride. Google it sometime and if you like to ride, you’ll see why.
    My horsemanship was adequate.
    Thanks for the reply,

    It’s a play on a Futurama quote. During the election episode, Professor Farnsworth speaks to a representative of an NRA type political party. While the rep was advocating the right of mad scientists to carry doomsday devices, he patted a vile of mutated anthrax in his shirt pocket and claimed it was for duck hunting.

    .
    The kind of cutting horse I owned (mostly Quarter horse with a bit of thoroughbred), it was difficult enough to reign in the horse, never mind shoot from one. Yikes, I can see all sorts of bad things happening.
