Let's just address the armed guards thing. You can find a lot of folks even in the Israeli government who want and believe all sorts of things. But he doesn't say WHY dealing with a maniac trying to shoot up a school is different than dealing with a terrorist trying to shoot up a school. Largely because it isn't, except maybe that the terrorist is likely to be more practised and to have scoped out the school better. So really, all that guy says is that he doesn't like guns.

Now you can debate the logistics of putting armed guards in schools. Though we do have thousands of unemployed vets who could be trained for the purpose. And let's face it, elites like Obama do seem to be fine with them as long as it's their children being guarded. So why not at least see if it's feasible to try it for the rest of us?

After all, as Lott and other point out, banning guns will only restrict them from law abiding citizens, not someone who is going to kill people. Some of the highest crime rates in the nation come from the places with the strictest gun control laws---because criminals are the only ones with guns.


Terrorists in Israel don't go into a school looking to shoot it up. They strap a bomb to their chest and blow themselves up. Maybe they should put armed guards in coffee shops and on every bus ... those are the places that aren't enjoying that "great effect" of safety.

And why do people keep using Obama and his kids as this false equivalency? It's downright idiotic. If someone were to go after Obama's kids, it would be because they're Obama's kids ... or any President for that matter. If someone were to shoot a regular citizen's kid, it was because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They are not the same.

How long are we going to let this issue destroy the country? Are guns the real problem here? Or is it children? Outlaw children, and then there won't be any for gunmen to shoot.

If this gun control thing works, I think we should try this method for other problems. For instance, outlawing guns might not be enough when people could kill someone, say, by bashing their head in with a rock. We should outlaw murder. That would cover all the bases.

Novelist Larry Correia explains exactly what would be banned in an assault rifle ban.

The second half has to do with guns in schools

http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2012/ ... n-control/

the post they talk about in the video is found in the above link. I've read it and I think it is worth taking a look at.

His writings include the Monster Hunter series of books (International, Vendetta, Alpha and Legion) and the Grimnoir Chronicles (Hard Magic, spellbound). Both are very good series, but I think the Grimnoir chronicles are better and just a plain cool system of magic.

no, the real problem lies in the absurdly low cost of bullets.

Drugs are another thing we should outlaw. We could even go so far as to have a war on drugs. I'm not sure what we would fight it with though, with no guns. I guess sticks.

Clearly money is used to buy guns and bullets. Outlaw money. Problem solved.

Has anyone even thought about consulting an animal control specialist about this? They are well respected authorities on firearm ownership, as demonstrated by the Zimmerman thread last year.

i think most of the people who want the ar-15 banned don't realize that one trigger pull equates to one bullet fired. they see the ar-15 and they think it's the same as an m16 or m4.

i am also reminded of this (fake) video:

Incredible. How is this allowed to continue?

NORFOLK, VA—According to numerous reports, local 62-year-old Earl Bailey, who owns a shotgun and several boxes of ammunition, is currently the last bastion of defense between the United States of America and the federal government’s plot of a full-scale takeover.

Bailey, a recent retiree and a proud advocate of gun rights, has been confirmed by multiple sources as being a true patriot, and is, at present, the only person capable of preventing top-secret forces within the government from striking and forcefully coercing hundreds of millions of Americans to submit to a fascist and brutal New World Order.

Since the early 1990s, sources estimated the gun owner has staved off innumerable large-scale government threats, all from the center of his 12-acre ranch.

“It is every American’s right to be good and armed, and that’s a right that should always be protected,” said Bailey, now the sole American protecting the nation from the government’s hidden plot of disarming all citizens, gradually gaining control of the mass media, and installing martial law throughout the nation’s streets. “Our Founding Fathers intended for each and every one of us to protect ourselves from tyranny. That’s what America is all about.”

“What happens when the feds show up at your front door and start telling you how much meat you can eat or how to raise your kids?” continued the lifetime NRA member, brandishing the very weapon that now serves as the final hope of staving off a totalitarian state. “Is that the future you want?”

Bailey, who keeps his gun on his person at all times and regularly patrols his property in his truck, has reportedly struck dread into the very highest-ranking members of the U.S. government. According to sources, top government and military officials are fully aware that they remain unable to commence with their oppressive, systematic subjugation of the American populace as long as the 62-year-old owner of a rifle exists.

Additional reports confirmed that Bailey’s frequent practice of shooting his gun at empty bean cans in his backyard has repeatedly forced government officials to reassess both their ground and air strategies for the impending takeover.

“The way I see it, the Second Amendment’s been keeping this nation free and secure for well over 200 years,” Bailey said, valiantly standing in front of his home that is constantly being monitored by CIA agents and elite Special Forces operatives, who are told to maintain a safe distance from the formidable 62-year-old. “First they’ll come for our guns and next…well, shoot, I don’t really plan on ever seeing what the hell happens next.”

While the federal government is more than adequately prepared to begin the first phase of its plan of convoying Second Amendment adherents to newly established FEMA concentration camps, high-level members of the Obama Administration involved in the widespread conspiracy confirmed that they have been forced to resort to alternate methods due solely to Bailey’s heroics.

“As long as there’s someone like Earl out there with a gun and ammunition, we are unable to carry out our attack on America,” said Maxwell Caufield, a covert military leader in charge of the operation to turn the country into an authoritarian, one-party state wherein the basic rights of citizens are stripped away in order to create total government control. “Try as we did to spread our distorted gun control propaganda—claiming that it would protect innocent people across the country from needless deaths—the man just wouldn’t bite. There is simply nothing we can do about Earl and his gun, damn him.”

“You’ve got to hand it to him, really,” Caufield added. “If it weren’t for Earl, you’d be looking at a totally different country.”
