    Default "The shooting was the fourth at a US school within a week."

    6 dead in illinois.

    I know these threads are over done, and I'm in Canada, but it was rather sickening how easy it was for him to get a gun.

    Do you need to start bringing guns to school to protect yourselves now? As many people that say that letting everyone having guns prevents crimes... bringing them to class?

    I just don't know, sounds personal from that article.

    Anyhow, opinions? Gun opinions? Does anyone else get tired of all this?

    I think, what rape is for Japan, is (school) massacer for USA.

    Just like saying "Hello".


    After all, they are fault themselves... wouldnt they sell guns to everyone, nobody would die in school.
    Sounds pretty easy? It is.

    I'm so leaving this country...


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Well, I hope that your new president (Obama?) will have a way of dealing with all the guns that are circulating the country, even in the hands of civiliens who have no need of a gun. Even though it's their right....

    The Second Amendment, as passed by the House and Senate, reads:
    “ A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. ”

    The original and copies distributed to the states, and then ratified by them, had different capitalization and punctuation:
    “ A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. ”

    Both versions are commonly used in official government publications. The original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribe William Lambert and hangs in the National Archives.
    No ones in a militia, that right does not exist.

    You cant in the US.
    If you take the rednecks and fundamentalist their wepons, you are kicked out of office.
    Clinton at least was able to take them their automatic guns away, but Bush gave them back..

    This problem will never change in the US. Never. (at least not in a todays existing person lifespan)

    apparently, "the right to bear arms" was put in place by because of an impending british invasion, a threat that never fully materialized. i'm not sure how accurate this information is though, can someone confirm ?

    i don't have solid statistics, but intuitively, less restrictions on gun ownership = more guns on the streets = more chance of someone accidentally/purposely getting shot.

    You know that there was a war between the colonies and Britain, right?
    The "duty" to bear arms had once a reason.
