    Of course they offer courses. You didn’t know that?
    Of course, if you’re asking if they offered them for free to the community of Newtown, that’s just ludicrous, and you’re being foolish to ask if they would be as insensitive as you.

    Perhaps, but most gun folks who think they need them for protection are nuts.

    Two events in one town Stuart and MSM doesn’t want you to know about

    Did you bother to read either article? In the first, the armed person who apprehended the suspect in question was a trained police officer who was off duty at the time. From the article: “After the suspect reached the theater, an off duty Bexar County Sheriff officer who was working at the theater shot at him and possibly struck him…”

    The second article is about a woman who shot and killed an intruder in her own home using a hand gun. What does that have to do with high capacity semi-automatic assault rifles?

    “Two events in one town Stuart and MSM doesn’t want you to know about”
    Both links you provided were from the San Antonio Express-News, the 3rd largest daily paper in Texas. How is this not mainstream?

    LaPierre would be more likely to write it in the snow on the grave—in the traditional manner.

    Get used to it — there will never be serious gun control in the US, the US will continue to have a very high rate of death by guns (no matter how polite you may be), and every now and then there will be a big massacre. It’s just the American Way.

    ‘Last month the FBI did background checks on 2.1 million people who bought a gun legally. It was reported that high number is because O is going to outlaw guns, but that would be their personal opinions.’
    Is that your belief? That Obama is coming to get everybody’s guns?

    I’m a gun owner, in a Democratic gun owners caucus. I have friends who are in the NRA, but have far less radical views than thouse espoused by Wayne La PIerre. If the only issue was Wayne being insane, it would be one thing, it’s the fact he has absolutely zero ethics or moral fiber that bothers me more.

    One of Wayne’s true idiocies is the oft-repated "over two million crimes a year are stopped by guns, or in self-defense. I’ve read “the Armed Citizen” many times, and most come closer to Zimmerman, or the kid in “Home Alone”. Most of the reports are of truly dangerous people who own guns, and usually cannot hit what they shoot at, or use a gun in a manner that would have any certified police officer fired, or in jail, for improper use of a weapon. (YES, I’ve BEEN a certified police officer and had to have annual training to maintain that status. These Yahoos the NRA is so proud of have NOT been certified, OR trained sufficiently, or they wouldn’t make the column.)

    Firearms are used approximately TWO times per day in the US for self defense, according the national police association.

    Lapierre had a perfectly workable solution to the problem of gun violence in schools. Just put in enough armed guards to handle the situation. I estimate the average school would require about 10 armed guards to cover all of the doors.
    Where would we get the money to pay them? No problem, just tax each sale of weapons or ammunition enough to cover their salaries. That wouldn’t just cut down considerably on the sale of guns, it would be a big help in finding work for returning vets.
