The Washington Post implies that gun control would prevent shootings in schools

October 11th, 2006

The Washington Post is all snarky because there aren’t enough voices crying for more gun control as the solution to shootings in schools.

But what gun control do they think would stop school shootings?

Schools are already gun free zones.

A man willing to shoot 10 children in the head is probably willing to break a few gun laws.

Believing gun control will stop violence, viagra canada ed is like thinking outlawing pornography will prevent sex.

    Elliot – you’re talking about people who truly don’t get it. They think that simply putting your hands in the air and saying “Oh- don’t shoot me. I’m unarmed.” will solve everything. HA!

    Personally – I’d like to know that atleast one person in a school is equipped to truly protect my child. If my child is going to be threatened by a mad man with a gun – I want someone there that can truly defend my child with something more than a hug and tears after my kid is shot.

    Love, peace and tolerance is fine and dandy if you’re dealing with a like-minded person. Someone willing to shoot kids is not going to recognize any of those traits.

    Personally – I’d rather the mad man go down sooner rather than later. I think our kids deserve a fighting chance.
