Yes, I may rant a bit over the next few week...... sorry

Now as you read through the list..... How many were in Gun Free Zones. The Bradey Bunch and the wacko's of the world have got together and set up shooting galleries. The Bradey Bunch has ensured that the deranged people of the world are free from facing a person that finds its important to defend their life and those around them. When is the Bradey Bunch and their followers of the liberal media going to learn that there are 130 million (plus) people with the ability to prevent this from happening just by remaining anonymous and quietly carrying concealed.




Half the nation's worst shootings ever have occurred since 2007



With at least 27 people confirmed dead in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut, the tragedy has taken the second-most lives of any such incident in American history, and stands as one of the most horrific school shootings around the world. Thirty-two people were killed by student Seung-Hui Cho at Virginia Tech University in 2007 before he turned his gun on himself in the deadliest shooting on U.S. soil. In 2004, pro-Chechen rebels in Russia took more than 1,200 schoolchildren and adults hostage in Beslan, and at least 386 eventually died in gunfire between the rebels and security forces. In all, half of the nation's deadliest shootings have occurred in the last five years. [Source]

Don't be sorry. Rant away!
I feel the same way.
I have several friends who are teachers and all but one of them are FOR allowing teachers to conceal carry in the school. Personally, I think it should be mandatory.

All of the anti-gun nuts are going to come out of the woodwork again and start saying that we need registration, or we need to ban all guns. Well, as the saying goes, "When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will own guns." I guess I will be an outlaw, because they are not getting mine from me...

As do I. Not that I know how it will play out, but I will say I spend about $1,300 on guns I've been putting off today. Call me paranoid

Always amazes me how they overlook the shootings that have been stopped by someone with a gun.

Appalachian school of law & Pearl Mississippi are two that come to mind.

Ordered some more Pmags today.

Jeff,
First off, I would like to offer my condolences to all the families and friends involved with this tragedy.
Am I for tougher gun laws? Yes! Registering Guns with mandatory training? Don't have a issue with that.
But what this country needs is a tougher legal and penal system.
I'd hate to be in a crowded theatre and have twenty people start shooting at each other because each one thinks the other is the bad guy.
I see and understand what you are saying about gun free zones, but i don't think arming every teacher and janitor in the nation will solve anything.
All in all, there's no easy solution whether you think guns should be abolished or they are your God given right to do with as you please. Unfortunately, sick and deranged people are getting access to weapons and killing innocent people!

Getting rid of guns will do NOTHING. Bath School Disaster anyone? That one was a bomb in the school that killed 39. How about the ones that are happening over in countries that restrict guns? Machete, knife or kitchen cleaver. One guy set a kindergarten class on fire with gasoline. Restricting guns will make things worse, not better.

Condolences to those affected by this tragedy.

But I too fear that this may be the straw that breaks the camels back.

I'll be shocked if they don't use this push more gun control or worse.

I am not even sure how to comprehend how someone could do that. I feel for everyone involved.

Like many of you I think this will be the proverbial straw that breaks the camels back. I don't know the story behind how the shooter got the guns or much of the back story but it cannot help the pro 2nd amendment group at all.

Edit: SilvrSRT10 - said the same thing, teach me to read before posting.
