  •  Arming Teachers (14+ / 0-)

    people forget.......over 380 children survived because of heroic efforts on the part of teachers and teachers aides who took action without drawing a gun.

    a mentally ill person had easy access to an assault weapon, extended magazine and thousands of rounds of ammo and according to the CT State Police, went in with the capacity to kill everyone at the school.

    the shooter spent countless hours holed up in a dark room playing violent video games in effect becoming fully trained for the mission he had planned in his head.

    someone determined to kill will kill,

    if there were no assault weapons, no extended clips, no ability to purchase thousands of rounds of ammo, if the weapons were secured by a mother concerned about the apparently deteriorating mental health of her son these children would all be alive. period. end of story. had these things not been an issue, there would be no need to even consider insane options such as arming teachers.

    I hold the shooter, the mother, the people who sold the weapon, clips and ammo, the NRA and Congress equally responsible.

    mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.
