1) About metal detectors. You're right. The metal detectors would have stopped these bastards. No wait, that's actually a pretty ignorant idea. Maybe the "no weapons on school grounds" sign should have been bigger. Maybe if the shooters knew that guns weren't allowed, they wouldn't have brought the guns in the first place. Please.

We don't hear about this kind of stuff in any other country, its every other week in America. You can say all you want about guns not killing people, I understand that - but its something to do with the general attitude towards firearms that Americans have that must be something to do with the problem.
Liek I said, somethign needs to give, somethign needs to be tackled and stopped and right now you guys are doing nothing about it and this crap is just constant..
So upsetting. . a #ing elementary school. . wtf is wrong with these people.edit on 14-12-2012 by n00bUK because: (no reason given)
Can we take the gun-control conversation to another thread and say it is off topic? This is about an actual breaking event. If you want to theorize about whether the Soviet Union and China have been historically safer than the United States do it elsewhere.
Mod: Sorry, I know I shouldn't say the above but I don't want to page through 10 pages of the same conversation we've had 100 times on here while trying to figure out what the latest news is.edit on 12/14/2012 by ararisq because: (no reason given)
