    How many Americans can realize that for kids in Afghanistan for a decade, for kids in Iraq two decades, and in Gaza for four decades, with Predators, Hellfires, or just random “preemptive defense”, this has been every day life? We bring violence on others, and if they respond against us, we bring more on THEIR kids, yet will not regulate the source of “home grown violence”, because of politics, and profits, not “defense”.

    I reckon “they” have fortress campuses patrolled by guards armed with automatic weapons. Is that really what we want, too?

    Dianne Feinstein’s bill is the right idea, but the wrong solution. There is no point in outlawing guns. They are out there, there are millions, they are made of metal and will last for a thousand years if they are kept oiled. Failing that, I could find materials in my basement that would produce a workable gun, and it doesn’t take much knowledge of the subject to figure out how to do it.

    Bullets, on the other hand, are time consuming to make and require specific equipment. Production of enough to do serious damage would require planning and patience that are not characteristic of those who shoot up elementary schools. And, working on such a project might attract the attention of someone sane.

    Bullets can be individually stamped, and their sale can be registered, so that every bullet can be traced back to the person who purchased it. This way, a guy who wants to buy a couple boxes of bullets to go shoot deer, or the woman who wants a box to keep with the gun in her bedside drawer, won’t set off any warning bells. But the guy who is buying an arsenal will attract attention before he finds a more lethal way to do it.

    You didn’t read flake’s post. He said gun control laws were responsible for the deaths of those children. flake wants the laws changed so teachers MUST wear guns, so they can shoot the shooters.


    ahab was protesting flake’s post, so ahab was on YOUR side.

    I don’t follow your solution. Marking bullets will discourage the kind of person who hopes to kill with an unregistered gun and get away with it. How will it stop a suicidal maniac?

    Say WHAT.. what third rate education do you have?..if any? Gun Control Laws WORK.. if your theory was correct then explain to me why over 60 percent of all homicides involve guns that were LEGALLY purchased? You my friend or sad excuse for a human being. You are more concerned about having a gun then that of a life of a child. Out gun control laws are HORRIBLE and .. never mind. Your a waste of human flesh and .. just jump off the planet would ya.. thanks for spiting on the graves of children AZZhole.

    Australia had the guts to do something about this in 1988. Can this country do the same ?

    Perhaps we should follow the letter of the constitution and only allow guns to members of militias.

    I want to follow the Constitution – period. Anything else is tyranny – the kind of stuff Obama enjoys.

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    And where do you think the militia comes in? Any one owning a firearm ought to belong to the Militia, and undergo rigorous training in its use and safety before touching one. And that training should get rid of potential nutcases.

    The guns used in the killings in Sandy Hook were stolen from his mother.

    We do not and cannot have enough police to have be able to have them guard every mall, theater or school. Even if we could afford the expense, would that be desireable?

    What we need is a return to the solution we had when america was threatened by attacks on their homesteads and families by savages bent on their massacre and destruction. We were threatened by savages in the past and we are threatened by the savages of the mentally ill and morally deficient now. We need a militia.

    By a militia I mean citizen, trained in the use of weapons, armed at their own expense with weapons of their own choosing, who would band together not to prevent, for prevention is not possible, but to mitigate and end as quickly as possible the attacks of the violent against their homes and families.

    Imagine how different the outcome would have been if two parents, armed and trained, had been standing watch at the school, in order to provide protection.

    What parent of a child in the Sandy Hook school system would not willing stand a four hour watch one day a month, to ensure that if such an were to happen again, that they would be there and have the means to end it as quickly as possible.

    Those that say that banning weapons or bullets or magazines would prevent this kind of attack are wrong. On the same day that this attack took place, in china a man used a knife to attack 22 children in a school. China has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the world. But those laws did not protect their children, and they won’t protect ours.

    Did making drugs illegal stop the problem of drug abuse? no, it made it worse. Making guns illegal will not help.

    What we need is a militia. Citizens who have passed a background check, who have no mental or moral defect, who band together to obtain the training required. Who have placed themselves under authority, to preserve and protect their society from the attacks of savages. Who have, for that purpose provided themselves with the arms needed.

    We need to have government, local, state and federal, get out of the way and stop preventing people from being able to defend themselves and their neighbors. Creating “Gun Free Zones” only makes a killing zone where these savages know that they will find a wealth of unarmed victims.

    We need change to our laws, that is true. We need to strengthen our ability to repell those that would kill us for their own purposes and pleasures. We need to organize and we need to make sure that those that would harm us or our children are not given a free hand to do so.

    Government is there to pick up the pieces afterwards. We need to be able to stop this savagry as it happens. An armed and trained populace, a “well regulated militia” is the answer.

    Ruff – I’m not getting into the anti-gun debate caused by this incident. What we have as American citizens are a list of protected rights and a blueprint for government that our leaders SHOULD have to follow… Since I haven’t really seen any sensible people rally around this fact, on any side- and our hole-card Justice Roberts even jumped ship – you nuts will do whatever you want even if it makes sense or not – without thinking about the consequences. Arguing with a bunch of tyrannists who are happy with that as the status quo is futile.

    Bullets are not time consuming to make. They can be made with a very small kit and a hammer. This idiot had a lot more ammunition ready. He also tried to buy a rifle weeks before. The components to make bullets are just as abundant as guns are now, and they are untraceable. Your plan is not perfect.
