Give the teachers the means in which to defend themselves and their students.




Oh my, the mind reels with incredulity as to the so-called rational thinking on display here. I've got an idea, while you're at it arming the teachers, why don't you rename all the schools to 'The OK Coral', and all the cities to 'Tombstone', then you really will be back to the good ole' days of the wild west! Unfortunately, don't expect the native Americans to participate, but I suppose a few of you could dress up as Indians at Halloween, just to caricature the needful Bogeyman your paranoia requires.

Who started this thread? P. Morgoon? Hey Morgoon! We told you to get out of our country and your still here running your mouth!


After correcting your grammar and punctuation, I have one question? Please! Please! Please! Put all the world's mind at ease, and tell us all that you do not own a gun? I live 4000/5000 miles away from you, but the thought that you may be armed with anything more than a feather, fills me with such a dread that it scares the hell out of me!

I take it you work in the immigration office?

TOS prevents me from telling what I really think of ....... nevermind.

This is what I think of your post and opinions:

Try to just not kill anyone while your behind the wheel of a car and not burn yourself when boiling water.

Just to show how archaic most of us are...

It isn't even about countries anymore! People harping on how great THIS country is and all the other blah, are the same as the silly little gangbanger in L.A.

That gangbanger is willing to die for his little block........
..........when there's a entire WORLD out here! With innovations and improvements, we are fast becoming a GLOBAL society. The rich are already there, they may live in Europe and do business in the U.S., while sending their kids to school in Germany.

Catch up or get left behind...

What would be wrong with arming school teachers? Perhaps the world should ask some of the parents what they think, if they would have preferred their child alive in their arms instead of face down with blood oozing from their faces. Why should a gas station employee have a firearm rather than a teacher? Why do police carry firearms?

While people are lining up now, even though the guns are being pulled off the shelves as we speak, America as a whole will never succumb to this madness.

Let the lawmakers in Washington and their cronies be the first to relinquish their weapons, we will see how fast they are shot

The belief that you and your gun are going to overthrow the government is equally delusional.



How's that US military doing overthrowing Afghanistan and Iraq?? Yeah on the surface they put in a new dictator but honestly the US isn't even close to winning those wars.. THAT is why guns are so important.. Take the guns away from afghan's and they NEVER would have held off both of the largest military superpowers. Sheer ignorance.. To think the US populous could not fend off their government is bordering mentally retarded.. Who do you think makes up the US military? Who do you think makes all those weapons? Who do you think flies the planes, fuels the jets, drives the tanks?? Grey aliens with no family in the country???? The government could be overthrown very quickly as a matter of fact..
edit on 19-12-2012 by libertytoall because: (no reason given)




No it takes a mentally retarded person to think the US populace could hold off or defeat our military....and I've served in the Army!

The U.S. is pussyfooting in those wars. If we wanted to win we would in a single day! Our destructive capabilities can not be matched on this planet. We have weapons so destructive we don't dare use. Troops have armour that our small arms won't penetrate.

It won't even be necessary for American troops to fire on citizens...there's a plan in place to replace them. Every soldier can be sent home and we would still ahve a military.

If shtf and the military wanted to put us down.....we would pass as quietely as gas from a newborns bum.

I love all these armchair Rambos.. When they come for your guns you will hand the over like everybody else..


Can you tell me who exactly you think will come for our guns if it comes to that?
Some new goventment body perhaps? Our military maybe? Volunteers?
Who?

There are certain logistics to something like that. Any campaign to confiscate weapons from the American public would be an epic fail. Epic...




Where do you think a large portion of missing people and children really are? Shhhhhh...you're not supposed to know!

The logistics is easy. You first set up a timed amnesty for relinquishing guns that become by law illegal to own. You can set up centres for dropping them off, or you can simply take them to your local police station. Be under no illusion, once the amnesty runs out, if you have not handed in your illegal gun, robust policing will take them from you.


Easy? Easy for you to say.
That approach would be a fail.

What you fail to acknowledge with this approach (or any)is that our police officers, our military, our government officials, etc. are also American Citizens. They have families who are also American citizens (also with guns).
There will be resistance. The majority of military/police/officials will not be turning their guns on their families.
Sorry.

I think you don't quite understand how important the issue is to the average American who values liberty.

But feel free fantasize about an easily disarmed American public.




Naw, that scenario is quite feasible!

All they simply have to do is reassign the police or troops. For instance they would have police from NY doing the confiscations in LA.

Believe me, it has all been taken into account if there were ever the desire too...

Oh my, OP! You opened up a can of whoop-ass with this thread, and honestly, you deserve it.

Those who fail to remember history are doomed to repeat it. As King Solomon wrote, all those many thousands of years ago, "There is nothing new under the sun". The rights guaranteed under our Constitution are as valid today as when they were written over 200 years ago. Because some things never change in the human condition. To say that it is outdated and a "relic" is a sad commentary about how little some people know about history and our potential future.

As for the poster who said that it is women who are behind this push for disarming America, let me say that I am middle aged, female, and I believe that we should leave the second amendment the hell alone. So tired of this patently obvious, blatant attempt at taking away our only defense against tyranny and total takeover.

Most of my friends, who are female, are gun-toting, and no, they're not all in Texas, they are all over the country.

The first thing any tyrant would need to do in America is disarm us, in order to complete the subjugation of the masses. The fact that most Americans are armed is a thorn in the side of any despot, and the only thing that has kept us from being turned into a totalitarian state. You want to get rid of that last, best defense against our downfall, Missy?

In the corner with the pointy duncecap, NOW.





But this is where many of you are delirious, our having guns is nothing but a "thorn". Our technology has advanced to the point that our small arms fire doesn't matter.

Your little gun isn't protecting you from anything except maybe low level criminals...

Do you realize how many people you could mass murder with poison?

You simply cannot stop someone that is hell bent on killing a lot of people. There WILL ALWAYS BE A WAY!

And THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PEOPLE unstable and miserable enough to spread their misery.

Quit trying to fix everything by telling all the normal people what they can and cannot do or have.

Be under no illusion, once the amnesty runs out, if you have not handed in your illegal gun, robust policing will take them from you.

As you are quite well aware, all guns are serialised and entered onto a database containing names and addresses. If you've sold it privately, you should have informed the relevant authorities that you have done so, giving the name and address of the buyer. This you did because you are a law-abiding citizen, you are not a criminal. If the police have not received confirmation that you handed in your AK-47, or your M16, listen out for the knock on your door...what! you're gonna meet the cops with a gun! Let me know where I can send the flowers for your grave!



There's just a little fly in that ointment, bub. The US Constitution specifically forbids EX POST FACTO laws. So how is the government going to make all guns illegal without that process being patently and obviously unconstitutional?

As far as cops going door to door to unconstitutionally round up all the guns, well I predict that yes, the gun owner answering the door with a gun will be killed. But so will the first cop knocking on the door. Maybe even one or two others standing on the porch. Eventually, the cops will run out of volunteers to be that FIRST person a long long time before the US citizens start running out of people answering their doors with guns at the ready. Eventually people will get fed up over this and take the fight directly to those who have now become the enemy killing our friends and neighbors. Ugly situation? Oh yeah.

There are a LOT of us out here that just will not tolerate ANYONE trying to confiscate our personal possessions, no matter what sort of "law" the confiscators want to dream up in order to do that.

Heck, Americans have volunteered to be shipped off to other countries to fight for the freedom of those people. Do you seriously think we won't fight like hell HERE when OUR freedom is in jeopardy?

edit on 21-12-2012 by Rich Z because: Changed wording a bit.




Stop watching television...

In such a scenario, after the firtst gun nut fires on an officer come to confiscate his guns.....and the force completely swiss cheeses his home killing everyone in it...most people would not want the same to happen and would throw their guns in the yard before the police even knock.

Then the complete subjugation of the American people can begin in earnest.

I don't thinks so. There will be a lot more than just a few. I already know a few.

After most how many do you suppose is left?

If someone at that school had a gun or at least a tazer; the principle, a teacher, anyone really, this wouldn't have happened.


Actually I wish that someone in the school had a gun. I fully support any teacher or principle carring a gun. I disagree with the laws that establilshed "gun free zones". Like that is going to stop anyone that desires to shoot someone.


Don't you think teachers are there to teach? Why do you think they should be given the responsibility/weight on their shoulders to have to walk into work every day wondering if they will have to kill someone? How do you know that in any scenario the teacher would kill the perp rather than a frightened child/children? You know kindergarten cop was a film right, real life just isn't the same as a film.

And as I've said, yall will pass as quietely as the gas from a babies bum...

You having a gun is only a very "minor" inconvenience now. It only makes you feel good. Our techonology is too great. Without sending a single person in for you to pop with your small arm, only to have the bullet bounce off the armour harmlessly, they can simply microwave your block or a multitude of other things.

I mean hell....what if for kicks they simply threw a vial of small pox through your window...my man there are so many options.

We messed up when we allowed our military to innovate all these different weapons back in the 50's. Ever since then we have not been a threat.

Ok, alright... you succeeded in seeding the forum with a non-sequitur! But in doing so, you have also made everyone dumber for having read it!


I'm not sure how having a weapon for personal protection is akin to the wild west, but apparently to very small minds it is.
Pilots are armed. Politicians are armed. Celebrities are armed. Law enforcement are armed. Store owners are armed. Civilians with appropriate permits and certifications are armed. In fact, I'd bet that you encounter over 100 concealed firearms a day, but don't even know it. Didn't you find it odd that none of the aforementioned were wearing cowboy hats and boots?

Your association is dumbest thing I have ever read.
