Hypothetically, let's say we ban Ar15 type rifles...

    ...instead of arming teachers or adding security to schools...what happens next time there is a school shooting? Since it's obvious to anyone with a brain and knowledge of recent history, the worst school shooting was carried out with two pistols at Virginia Tech. The shooter chained the exit doors closed to prevent escape.

    The answer is more security, not using tragedy to further political goals.

    Maybe it's a little of both.

    How many mass shootings have there been using modern semiautomatic rifles? There are approximately 5 million legally owned modern semiautomatic rifles in the U.S.

    Ban all guns and share a coke and teach the world to sing...

    McVeigh did not need a gun to kill hundreds of people, so what could happen!?!

    Trucks make great bombs for the lunatics of the damn world, but hey guns are bad, am I correct!?!

    Note:
    I do not believe banning firearms will solve a damn thing and would make our society less safe...

    Seriously?

    39 times.

    39 times.

    How many more laws do you think would have been effective if the ones used now are not enforced. What political goals do you think would help?

    Exactly. It wasn't a gun that took out those who were in the trade towers and pentagon on September 11th either, so why have planes remained in the picture? A substitute will be found no matter what is taken away.

    God bless you always!!!
