How would gun control have helped? It is already illegal for the kid to own a gun, it is illegal to carry it on the school grounds, it is illegal to
shoot people, yet this still happened. Someone needs to explain to me exactly how one more law would have made it any different? The shooter already
broke any number of laws, including committing murder (or attempted murder at least), so how would some gun control law make any difference.
AND, tell me this, if someone is intent on going to a school and murdering people, at least a gunshot rings out as a warning. What if this were just
a 6 inch, silent blade? He could walk around shanking people for awhile, without causing the mass panic, and with much more stealth. So, without
guns, we could still easily have a mass murder situation, with even less warning, but no less lethality!
Now, I can tell you a real solution. Arm the teachers! If a shooter walks into a school and starts to shoot, and a dozen properly armed and trained
people immediately take him down, then lives are saved! And don't give me the illogical argument that armed people will shoot haphazardly and kill
bystanders. Where is the evidence that any lawful gunowner has ever shot wildly into a crowd? It doesn't happen. So, the answer is exactly the
opposite of the article's title! The answer is MORE GUNS!
