    When libtards and gun grabbing whores want to get everyone to come to the table and discuss what might be done, I know most of them want to start with how much more restrictive can we possibly make it for people to legally buy guns, as if that was a solution of any sort.

    So my initial reaction is to come to the table with three suggestions 'eat shit', 'fuck you' and kiss my Royal American ASS'.

    But restraining myself from such derision, no matter how much it is deserved, I am wondering what can be done that might impose more difficulty to would-be monsters that doesnt unreasonably impede legal gun owners.

    The first thing that coms to mind is

    1. Allow concealed carry by volunteer faculty at schools if they pass screening and training. If Good Samaritan laws need to be passed as well to protect them from parasitical lawyer ass wipes then pass those too.

    2. If there is a certified mentally ill patient on mind altering meds that resides in that same home, then require gun owners there to keep their guns locked up or on their posession.

    3. Make it illegal for people who are certifiably dangerous and on mind altering meds to legally own guns. The meds would not be things that simply calm you down like PTS patients have, unless the shrink determines in that specific case that the patient is a threat.

    4. The media should voluntarily STOP GLORIFYING THE POOR LITTLE ASSAILANT. Jeebus, the media holds the carot of instant notoriey out to anyone deranged enough to kill multiple people so that their hurtful past, favorite cause or silencing the voices, whatever can get huge publicity. Whatever happened to the media having some fucking standards?

    Any other change suggestions would be appreciated unless it is more gun grabbing shit.

    all they will do are feel good measures so they can appear to have done something.

    Sounds like a whole lot of silliness when just pulling the guns would be easier...

    "Lock up the guns if you have a crazy person in the house?" How about not having guns in the house with a crazy person?

    All of us never want to see another mass murder of innocent Americans. IMO no civilian needs to own a high velocity gun able to fire 30 or more rounds as quickly as one can pull the trigger. IMO someone seeking security is better off with a shotgun for home defense. In a stressed situation even well trained military and police miss often, a shotgun racked gets one's attention, fired wakes the dead and it is point and shot - hard to miss.

    You can't prevent these kinds of massacres. You might be able to channel the method, but not prevent them.

    I'm a liberal and I don't give a shit about guns! I could care less about the 2nd Amendment. I've never owned a gun and I don't think I ever will. With that being said, I've never tried to take anyone's gun away. Except for the guy who tried to jack me in the park with a little .22, but got within arms distance and realized he didn't have that .22 anymore.

    You want to stop all these shootings, it's not gun control that will do it. You need to convince the baby boomers to be better parents. Violence is taught, not inherited.

    We, as a society, are in love with violence.

    Violence begets more violence.

    Buy all the guns you want. Like a car accident, eventually a gun-related incident will happen to you.

    And it's highly unlikely all the gun-toting humans walking around are all crack shots. So owning one won't prevent it. You'll miss, they won't.

    Someone will be killed. Again.

    It could be you. It could be me. It could be a bystander not even involved.

    And so it goes .............................................

    What's the difference? The violence still exists.

    Do you actually think you can do anything to turn that around? Do you read the attitudes that are posted on forums like this one?

    "God, you're so stupid!"
    "No, YOU are a moron!"

    Now an 11 year old has been caught carrying a firearm into a school. How much longer will it be until everyone is carrying?

    And what happens then?
