“Millions of schools already have armed police in them. If Obama won't permit it in every school it's just proof that he wants more school shootings to happen so he can use it for political gain. If Bush denied kids protection in school the lefties would crucify him.”

“The reality is that knowing their victim might be armed is a deterrent - that is why RTC has gained ground non-stop - and there are FBI stats that show that an armed populace is safer - as are the cops in RTC states. I posted them - they are awaiting posting.”

“Indeed so. They tend to feel so inadequate that they want to "cut" everyone else down to their size.

Who is sicker, the person who wants a firearms as a surrogate for his inadequacy or the person who sees guns as a symbol of his own inadequacy and wants to "make eunichs" of everyone else?”

FBI justifiable homicide data indicates that police officers may be safer in states where law-abiding citizens are empowered to carry concealed handguns in public.
Considering that criminals were 30.9% more “successful” in completing violent crime––and 38.6% more “successful” in completing murder attempts––in non-RTC states, a firearm is an effective self-defense tool. An armed citizen is less likely to become a violent crime statistic.”

“Wrong again - you're quoting stats that don't exist. HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of guns in homes in this country and what you say happens - doesn't. FACTS”

Terry DR on Dec 29, 2012 at 20:58:20

“Despite the US having the highest rate of firearms-related homicide in the industrialised world, the relationship between gun culture and violence is poorly understood. A recent study found that treating violence like an infectious disease led to a dramatic fall in shootings and killings.Overall, Branas's study found that people who carried guns were 4.5 times as likely to be shot and 4.2 times as likely to get killed compared with unarmed citizens. When the team looked at shootings in which victims had a chance to defend themselves, their odds of getting shot were even higher.While it may be that the type of people who carry firearms are simply more likely to get shot, it may be that guns give a sense of empowerment that causes carriers to overreact in tense situations, or encourages them to visit neighbourhoods they probably shouldn't, Branas speculates. Supporters of the Second Amendment shouldn't worry that the right to bear arms is under threat, however. "We don't have an answer as to whether guns are protective or perilous," Branas says. "This study is a beginning." NICE TRY!”

“Do you lock your front door? WHY? Are you frightened princess? Or is it just common sense? Do you put on your seatbelt when you drive? Are you terrified? Or just taking precautions?

You're another who says 'statistics say' - but never have any. The REALITY is there are millions of guns in this country - nearly 1 per person - and yet there are not millions of accidental shootings. Facts - liberals just hate em.”

And let me ask - weren't you scared - no - TERRIFIED - around all those guns? And gun nuts? How many shootings took place at the numerous gun shows you attended? They also sell lots of knives at the gun shows - surely there were massive stabbings too?

“Imagine if the country was populated entirely by the kind of person who runs out and buys a gun that the anti-gun nuts has said they want to ban because it 'looks scary'. At least be accurate in your representation.”

“You're completely ignoring the weekly stories of people walking into public places with assault rifles and killing innocent people. We think these guns look scary, because when we hear about these shootings, we have empathy for the poor, innocent people who get shot and die for no good reason with these guns. When you hear about dead kids, you think about the Liberals trying to take away your manhood extensions.”

mrsmdressup on Dec 29, 2012 at 20:47:05

“Sales soared the day after the shooting, dear. Well before ANYONE said they wanted to ban assault rifles.

I just hope when the next one happens, and it will....that it's your kid and not someone else's. Children of kind, sane, caring parents don't deserve what you folks are selling.”
