Yah, but flashing lights and sirens, ambulances, and people running!

From the way back machine: the mass media treated every death by firearm the same way back then, Feinsteen was forefront the same way back then, too.

Redirect-- focus, the guns, the Guns, the GUNS!

you know when schools where the safest the 1800s when people and children were allowed to carry. the shootings that did happen were usually 1 on 1 or group on group the only real massacre i found was in the early 1800s when native americans attacked an elementary school.

Yeah.

Schools were safer when teachers actually taught instead of indoctrinating children.

Let us know where you live and we'll find you a recent report of some lunatic doing something horrible to somebody there. Then multiply the number of people in your country so that it equals the US, and you'll likely find that it's all just a numbers game. More people, more psychos, more incidents.


If he were located in the UK, he might have seen the 2017 ONS numbers that indicate there is more reported knife crime in the UK than reported gun crimes in the US. Another stat to multiply.

More like how many crazy people are committing acts of mayhem per capita. It's not a nationalistic thing; it's a human thing.

From your wiki link



On May 22 2007, June 24 2009, and July 21 2011 US Representative Ron Paul introduced similar bills H.R. 2424, H.R. 3021, and H.R. 2613 that would repeal the Federal Gun Free School Zones Act. No form of the bill has ever passed committee.[19]

Recently US Representative Thomas Massie introduced similar bill H.R. 34 titled Safe Students Act.


Massie tried and Paul tried multiple times, to make our children safer, to give adults (perhaps living nearby or a parent visiting the school) a means to protect themselves and the students, but, nobody cares about the safety of our schools, and then they wonder why they have such a hard time learning? They dont feel safe sitting there in the open like sitting ducks. They want to know there's a Clint Eastwood type, ready to leap into action at the first sign of trouble. And they want to know that if something happens to him, there's another ready to take his place instantly. They want to know that they matter that much.
