Today, 27 people – including 18 CHILDREN – were murdered at the hands of one ‘lone wolf’ gunman.
Unbelievable that not ONE non-murderous citizen was armed. Every time something like this happens, they say NO more guns… Well, highly unlikely that this person was legally carrying their weapons. TWENTY-SEVEN DEAD and nobody could stop them? If someone else had a gun (besides cops… because they only show up AFTERWARDS) this could have been far less than 26. Insane.
I fear that instead of taking the path of ARMING good citizens, who can then TAKE ACTION against such vile acts as that perpetrated today against innocent children as they fire, sight their next target, fire, and so on – giving us time to REACT and RESPOND in like manner – to ban guns would force such maniacs as this man to employ HOMEMADE EXPLOSIVES – which INSTANTLY kills HUNDREDS, with NO time for us to react, like in Oklahoma City. And then we will open a Pandora’s box of a fascist regime that will end up crushing our natural aspirations that arise out of the spirit of freedom this great nation was born into.
Wholesale slaughter like this doesn’t require a gun. If you don’t care who your target is, then an IED would do the same job. So I hope we don’t start hearing about gun control – Nevermind. Too late.
27 people who never got the chance to “stand their ground”… I know some people who have concealed carry permits, and exercise their 2nd Amendment right to be armed. Had one of them been there, I know they definitely would have either stopped this, or been killed trying to stop it.
I can find a few “unlicensed (gun) dealers” right down the street of any inner city! Yeah, next door to the DRUG dealer! All banning guns does is INCREASE the differential between armed CRIMINALS and armed CITIZENS. See how well Prohibition worked – it strengthened ORGANIZED CRIME.
The problem is not guns, but the human condition. It is sad, and it’s a shame that our society of sheeple was not prepared, but instead made to bow to some idealistic notion of a peaceful world, that is NOT reality, and as a direct result, are left unprepared in the face of disaster.
Factually, a bullet could have AND DID stop this crazy killer. That is the ONLY THING that stopped him; A BULLET.
One thing is for sure:
I would at least TRY by encouraging teachers to practice shooting and have a gun locked in a safe, after proper training. I know, I know… that sounds extreme, to convert teachers into SOLDIERS or COPS. But it would have worked, and it would not have cost much. On the other hand, we CANNOT… literally HAVE NO MONEY TO PAY FOR… having police officers with guns in every situation like this.
Well, let’s see where the waves (of popular opinion) take us! I’ve done all I can to express MY views on here today. At least it has not become hostile, thank GOD. We all agree that incidents such as this are simply UNACCEPTABLE.
