    I prefer the term “combat arms”. It’s the reason they should be restricted to those in actual combat. If you can’t hit a deer with less than 30 rounds in the weapon, then exactly what DO you intend to hit with it?

    If the real issue was safety the government would outlaw all automobiles, airplanes, bicycles, swimming pools, skates and most sports. But it isn’t about safety, for the USA has a far lower assault rate than countries with “gun control”. It is about controlling the people, for now the government cannot control an armed population.

    And some actually think that the answers is arming principals (and the safeties too, I guess). This is their real mentality. That is why it is so hard to reach a concensus. The gun lobby is in an alternate universe somewhere.

    Not just the principles!
    Offer to pay any teacher who is willing to carry a concealed weapon extra. Devise a comprehensive training program and have at least 10% of the teachers on staff armed at all times. Maintenance staff should be eligible as well.
    Do this and school shootings will stop.
    No-gun areas are no longer safe. That’s reality.

    And in your plan what do you do with the stressed-out armed teacher who goes over the edge?

    The more guns in a place, the more shooting deaths. Let’s not do the experiment AGAIN with our children. Keep guns out of schools, and keep weapons of mass murder out of America entirely.

    Right, Mr. Ima. We should all look to Texas for guidance in education. What have you been smoking?

    Hopefully there would have been a mental health assessment before letting that teacher be armed. (not sure about arming teachers)

    Kids are life. Guns can mean death or life if you are stuck in the wilderness. Most of us have Never had to kill anything before eating it.
    I think if you kill it, you should have to eat it.
    Not in the case of humans, unless you are the Donner party.

    When my daughter was in third grade, the message from school was, “If Daddy kisses or hugs you too much, report him to us.” The bluenose brigade is still out to “save” children from love, and expressions of love of a parent, because we must fear “abuse”, and fear anything else in life, except of course, deadly weapons.


    It’s also interesting how often these “most concerned” turn out to be the most guilty themselves. It goes back to that apple in the garden, and let’s kill all snakes because “god” took their legs away.

    I know a teacher in Texas, near San Antonio. The school district does not allow guns in school.

    Baloney. England has far stricter gun laws than the US and has a small fraction of the murder rate (1.2 vs. 4.4 per 100,000). Ditto for many other countries, including Canada (1.6 per 100,000) and Australia (1.0 per 100,000).
