    then this terrible tragedy could have been avoided.   Obviously the solution to gun violence is more guns.

      i'm just waiting for the nra to start a new campaign to arm all school kids. afterall kids already take a ton of stuff to school so what problem would a bit of extra weight cause. and kids already play cops and robbers so they have had sufficient training. and just think about how much this would cut down on school yard bullying. plus lots of new junior nra members could be signed up. i'm just wondering about whether or not we should extend this to day cares too ... oh and maybe to fetuses in the first trimester to fight off abortion doctors .....

      There's room at the top they're telling you still But first you must learn how to smile as you kill If you want to be like the folks on the hill

        kids play the video games put out by the MIC.
        I desensitizes them to killing other humans.
        And to the violence.
        Games are fun, but imo, the killing ones, especially the war ones are to get these kids ready for the military.
        Sad news today.
        I can't imagine those parent's pain.

        America never needed so much in the last election and got so little.

    •  And take the attacker hostage. Beslan (0+ / 0-)

      in reverse.

      Recall the Beslan massacre. 380 children killed.

      Arm the teachers and take 380 mentally ill, hallucinating mad men hostages ?????

      Sure thing.

      If you're utterly mad.

      Is it going to take a Beslan, here, to see NRA's headquarters leveled ??? NRA are the ones who drive this plague -- bribe and blackmail lawmakers to avoid any and all controls that would keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

      (*&^#$%^$%^&%^& 'em.

      •  you're half right (0+ / 0-)

        Criminals are already banned from owning guns.  And if a person has been determined to be mentally ill, they too can't own a gun.  So the solution here is to put the gun makers out of business.

        •  No, mentally ill people buys guns every day. (0+ / 0-)

          There is no systematic control on these transactions.

          Also, private citizens have no means to determine who or what they have for purchasers.

          Sounds good enough for you:

          Criminals are already banned from owning guns.  And if a person has been determined to be mentally ill, they too can't own a gun.
          But that's not how it works. These measures have to be implemented and supported. Today, they are not.
