    We all know that Columbine had an armed sheriff's deputy on duty at the time of shooting. Virginia Tech had armed police on duty. Ft Hood had dozens of guards and MPs not to mention the trained military who were shot.

    We also know that there was an armed civilian at the Tucson shooting who stayed inside the Walgreen's store until the unarmed people wrestled the gun away from Loughner. He later said he almost came out but then his story changed several more times. It was the unarmed people, including an elderly lady, who held Loughner until the police arrived.

    In almost all shootings, its the police who stop the shooter or the shooter kills himself. In searching, I've found only one case of a civilian and one case of an off duty police officer taking down a shooter. There are also occasional cases of people disarming home invaders but, since this is not a second amendment issue, those stories have nothing at all to do with the question of armed police at schools.

    Since having armed guards has never helped before, why do gun nuts believe that will change?

    Do gun nuts want armed guards at other places as well? Churches? Restaurants? There have been shootings at both so should there be armed guards there as well?

    Question for the Nutter's: How is REQUIRING armed guards NOT an exercise in gun legislation or gun control, even if a positive example? How is that not government intrusion into our 2nd amendment rights?

    Yep.

    And, they seem incapable of understanding that while they're yammering about keeping rights, they're actually throwing rights away.

    Well, when the fed makes it easy for the bad guys to hurt us, I'm thinking the fed should stop doing that, especially when the Bill of Rights says they should not do that.

    Just an idea especially when this sort of shit has dramatically increased with more "control" laws.

    Liberals want you understand that guns are the primary cause... Mental illness is not. Guns are scary, so they should be banned. They only push their anti gun nonsense when there is a tragedy, because when there is no tragedy to back up their assault on your Second Amendment Rights, they lose their argument every time. They are a tyrannical bunch who use the deaths of children to push their anti Freedom agendas, which in itself makes them truly despicable people. Gun control isn't about controlling guns... It's about controlling people.

    Another "Do as I say, not as I do." Libtard!

    The Weekly Standard is reporting that despite his criticism of the NRA school proposal, Meet The Press - David Gregory’s own kids go to a high-security school with armed guards on the premises: "The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama, according to the Washington Post. That school is the co-ed Quaker school Sidwell Friends. According to a scan of the school’s online faculty-staff directory, Sidwell has a security department made up of at least 11 people. Many of those are police officers, who are presumably armed. Moreover, with the Obama kids in attendance, there is a secret service presence at the institution, as well."

    The Bill of Rights says the bad guys should not hurt us? Coupla question:

    1. Where?

    2. How is "hurt us" defined?

    I'm not sure I should even respond to such a retarded edit and question, except to say that it's a retarded edit and question based on a retarded edit.

    Merry Christmas, idiot. :D

    Gun nuts and rw's are not against government control. Just mention marriage equality or abortion and they're ready to vote for laws that would control the most intimate and private lives of OTHER Americans.

    Even though there is no evidence that guns in our schools would stop mass murders, and even though there IS evidence that guns in schools would NOT stop mass murder, its not at all surprising that they now want laws to force us all to live in fear of even more shootings than we already have.

    PROOF please.

    The FACT is, just as guns have not stopped mass shootings in the schools where they already are, there is no evidence that banning the ultimate goal of those who do not want the mentally ill, criminals, terrorists, illegals to be able to easily buy guns.

    The question is, WHY do the gun nuts/rw's want to arm the mentally ill, criminals, terrorists and illegals? WHY do the gun nuts/rw's always run away from THAT question?
