“"[M]any of his guys would lay their lives down to protect children, unlike our pathetic president."

Really? And you base this ignorant assertion on what, the color of Obama's skin or the fact his politics diverge from yours?

“Really? Do you think the gun manufacturers supply the black market directly, or are the guns first sold to straw buyers that then put them on the street? Seriously, how do you think they get there?”

“Even better, we could apply this to anyone seeking to exercise their religion under the First Amendment while owning a gun under the Second Amendment.

After charging them an annual fee for both, we could then record their names and contact info in a national database. This would take the place of Wayne LaPierre's national database of people with mental health issues, as it would likely be substantially identical.”

“"YES, apparently their kids are more important"

Is this a public school that the children go to? Are the guards paid for with American tax dollars? If the answer is "no", then no, they're not more important in the eye of the government and they're not receiving any preferential treatment. Instead, they have parents that make way more money than you ever will, and their parents are doing what they feel is best to provide their kids with a safe learning environment.

This may be beyond your comprehension, but as for the fact that Obama's kids go to such a school, please tell me where you think "W"'s kids went? Or do you think it's customary practice for all POTUS to send their kids to the neighborhood public school?”

“Yep you can pretty much find a study to back up your point of view no matter what it is. By the way thank you for the insults, I love it when progressives turn regressive. It’s like when a young child lays on his back kicking and screaming because he didnt get his way.

* Based on survey data from a 2000 study published in the Journal of Quantitative Criminology,U.S. civilians use guns to defend themselves and others from crime at least 989,883 times per year.

* A 1994 survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that Americans use guns to frighten away intruders who are breaking into their homes about 498,000 times per year.[20]

-According to the National Safety Council, with guns being used 2.5 million times a year in self defense against criminals, firearms are actually used more than 80 times more often to protect lives, rather than to take lives.

-A 1979 Justice Department study entitled Rape Victimization in American Cities, concluded that of more than 32,000 attempted rapes, 32 percent were actually committed. But when a woman was armed with a gun or knife, only 3 percent of the attempted rapes were actually committed.

-Another Justice Department study found that 57 percent of felons agreed that "criminals are more worried about meeting an armed victim than they are about running the police."”
