I hope I'm wrong. I worry about my family as anyone else would. I wish I could let my kids take their semi auto .25 pistols to school with them. They're trained to use them and I'm confident they wouldn't have any accidents with them.


You are confident that your "children" wouldn't have any accidents with guns? Do you not understand the concept of children learning through mistakes?

Kids have accidents.
Kids make mistakes.
Kids yield to peer pressure.
Kids like showing off.
Kids sometimes lose control.
Kids sometimes read a situation wrong.

Children + guns = tragedy.

That is so true, especially the last couple of scenarios, something that adults are also not immune to, as well as the rest. Children think in right and wrong, even teenagers think in right and wrong, with not much in between. If they get it wrong by their own actions they could make their own hell.

For those who disagree with our FORE-FATHERS WHO FOUNDED THIS COUNTRY, GET THE HELL OUT OF THE COUNTRY OR SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT GUN CONTROL.

TWO CHOICES: SHUT UP, OR LEAVE AS YOU ARE ACTUALLY A TRAITOR ANYWAYS IF YOU IGNORE OUR BILL OF RIGHTS.



Hello,

Didn't they also give people freedom of speech? Or does that one not count here when they disagree with you?

Gun rights advocates usually state that "if only that location wasn't a gun free zone, then someone else would likely be carrying and stop the perp". Well, the recent shootings all happened in "gun free zones", so I would expect the next big shooting to take place in a location where CCWs are known to be in abundance.

Okay, you do understand that you do not live in a bubble. So, even if your kids are responsible little humans, if they were ever given the right to carry a weapon, then every other kid would also be given that right. That is one scary proposition.
