    Armored backpacks and a rush on guns after Conn. | US National Headlines | Comcast

    Anxious parents are driving up sales of armored backpacks for children in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting.

    Sales on assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, like the ones used by the shooter last week to kill 26 people at an elementary school, are also flying off gun store shelves. Firearms enthusiasts are stocking up because they fear potential gun control measures.

    President Barack Obama tasked his administration Wednesday with creating concrete proposals to reduce gun violence.

    Colorado set a single-day record for gun background check requests the day after the Connecticut mass shootings, and some online retailers are removing assault rifles from websites in part because of diminishing supplies.

    What a screwed up world we live in -Armored Backpacks-WTF ?

    A sad world, not at all wiser.

    As for the idiots buying the war weopons, I suggest we enact the following laws.

    1. You have to have the same license for an assault weopon as for a fully automatic weopon. You are caught with an assault weopon outside your home without said license, the gun is confiscated and destroyed, you go to jail and get a felony count on your record.

    2. You store a gun irresponsibly, and someone takes it and uses it in a crime, you own the crime.

    Also, if you sell your assault weopon to someone that does not have a license, that is a felony. And to buy an assault weopon from the time the law is passed, you aquire the license first, otherwise, you are not allowed to buy the weopon, and the person selling you the weopon has committed a felony.

    Please define 'assault weapon', and tell us how it differs from a semi-auto deer rifle...
