Case B: Sandy Hook Elementary - People with no gun
26 killed
Gunman shot himself.

Which one do you prefer?
The benefit?

He didn't have a gun when he was brought to the police station. He "found" it there.
A venue filled with armed people did nothing to dissuade him from his attack.
Now, I expect this will be ruled suicide by cop as I cannot imagine what else he could have hoped to accomplish by his actions. But, three more people are shot and more people have to live with knowing that they provided the vehicle for someone's death.

Just another day in the great U.S. of A.

The police made a mistake. The criminal made a bigger one. Maybe it was suicide by cop, maybe it was simply stupid. Justice prevailed.

Chicago, with its strong gun control laws, hit 500 gun deaths for the year.

The shooter stole the gun off one of the officers?

Wonder if it was some 5'-3", 129lb little female quota hire feminist.


Seriously, this is entirely on the incompetent cop who let schmuckaroo grab the gun in the first place.

Police are NOT trained shooters, unless they pursue that on their own....they are trained to meet the minimum requirements of their departments.

In some departments that may mean very well trained but, in others you might have Barney Fife!

The better trained officers that I know/knew were ALSO gun enthusiasts, others...just something they had to have for the job.


This incident just goes to show that:

1.You are not safe anywhere...ESPECIALLY gun free zones.
2.No level of police presence will prevent something like this.
3.This stuff can happen anywhere.

4.Good guns stop this stuff from getting worse.
5.The closer a good gun is the faster it can be stopped.
6.Affirmative action is dangerous unless there are equal requirements.

Am I missing something here? Are you actually making the idiotic statement this appears to be making, or is it just a misstatement of some sort?

Look at this chick. She's tiny and looks like she should be a model or something:



With all due respect, you could tie one arm behind my back and she still couldn't take me (I'm 6'-2", 200lb).
