    What did the mentally ill do before high-powered assault weapons?

    "Lizzie Borden took an AK-47 and gave her father 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her mother 41"?

    I wonder how far Lanza would have gotten if he had been wielding an ax? He would have been whacking away at that window and trying to climb through broken shards of glass as someone inside would be dialing 911. By then the other admins and teachers would have been racing inside to lock themselves and the kids into classrooms and closets for lock down. The police arrived in 10 minutes so I suspect that there would have been only one or two victims, if any, before Lanza would have proceeded to the first locked door and swung his ax. And the children would be alive today.

    But hey, what do I know?

    mental healthcare is needed in this country.

    problems sometimes have more than JUST ONE solution

    You don't know much...

    This whacko wanted to kill people.. and nothing was going to stop him.. this type of person, without guns, would use pipe bombs, a truck crashing thru a wall or into a playground, handguns, machetes, fire, or whatever else... evil will find a way... limiting law abiding citizens will do nothing to curb it

    We can certainly PAY for more mental health care. Not that it will have any effect on individual mental health, but it will make us feel so good to pay. Almost like it will work.

    If all Lanza had had were knives, or a big machete, he would have had a hell of a time trying to get through that window. His blade would be bouncing off that glass as the admin inside was dialing 911.

    So let's say he had a baseball bat to break the glass before cutting the shit out of himself through the broken glass into the office. Same scenario and timing as the ax example above.

    You stupid, ignorant arrogant redneck rightwingers can go back and read the Bill of Rights and the year it was written and realize that the founding fathers were referring to muskets for "arms". So you want to keep your guns and abide by the Constitution? Here...here's your damn gun.

    Fortunately for the rest of us, it's not up to you to decide what others can own or not own, which is the way it's supposed to be.

    You are conjecturing and do not know what was inside his head.

    I propose a real-time scenario of what would have happened if he had only an ax or a knife to breach that office window.

    We DO know that his stupid mother made it very easy for him to act impulsively and without a lot of advanced planning. Now don't we?

    Cute....That's what slave-owners in America used to say before the 13th Amendment was passed.

    I can more quickly get a firearm thru illegal means than thru legal means... even if you ban weapons from us law abiding citizens, I could still get a firearm...

    Your fear of the inanimate object is astounding... a person with will will set forth to do their task.. it has happened all throughout history with every sort of killing mechanism possible.... limiting the law abiding does nothing to help you

    Exactly, the rest of us are not your slaves, you don't get to decide what we own or don't own. Btw, your rebuttal regarding owning another human being was quite desperate, not to mention stuipd... :lol:
