    That would still be way fewer deaths than by cars:

    More than 33,000 people and 11,000 kids 10 and under died in car crashes in 2009 (latest year available).

    Anyone trying to ban cars?

    Car deaths are accidental. To compare the two is stupid.

    Car accidents and 18 children shot execution style are the same in your mind?

    Guess what, idiot, one of them is preventable.

    Pretty soon we'd run out of the crazy shits that would do such a thing. That ass hole today had no intention on leaving that school alive. I heard another story where some dumb shit in China slashed 22 kids there with a knife. When a criminal has no regard for his own life it's practically impossible to stop them, why do you think suicide bombers a so hard to stop? Pass all the restrictive laws you want, they won't stop people like the one today.

    Not when a piece of machinery is blamed and the solution proposed is to ban or severely restrict that machine.

    Ahhhhhh...I see now.

    "Execution-style" is left wing anti-gun code to hype up an already horrible tragedy.

    Executions by guns are performed with the condemned against a wall, or tied to a post, with a blindfold and a platoon of riflemen shooting him in the heart.

    "Execution-style" is a media invention used by dickwads to color a murder as if it were nothing more than a great sports play that needed that little extra something for the viewing audience.

    Yep, we need to ban wheeled vehicles. They kill entirely too many people. The lazy sob wouldn't have been at the school if he had to walk.

    They aren't the same. How would you prevent mass shootings?
