    While I certainly count myself among those who think that guns should be kept away from psychotic mass murderers, there are a lot more shootings that are just plain dumb people who had access to a gun at the wrong time. Today's news: a row between two groups of students, one with a gun. At 1:20 in the morning, I'm guessing alcohol was involved:

    Who knows how many more "normal" shootings there will be today. Of course, the above incident would not have happened if all the students involved in the above incident were armed. Right? :(:mad: :rolleyes:

    Just like the weather and sports, soon television stations will have a dedicated segment to the daily news where they report who was shot today.

    I guess you have not watched any weeknight local news broadcasts in the last 50 years from Detroilet, Chiraq, Newark, Camden, Philly, Flint, etc.

    No, it was two.

    So far. A few hours left in the day. Maybe because it is Fire!day.

    No, remember it has everything to do with guns, just because we have one per person doesn't mean we have enough, Maybe if everyone had a loaded gun in each hand at all times we would see less gun violence...

    except when they shot their own feet or privates when wiping.

    Well then they should have had more guns to prevent that.



    If you didn't notice both these posts were sarcasm...

    Pacification by force , the Americam way.
    We should bring back duels , that would really make people behave in a civilized way .

    It was. Only the affected parties dueled & died. Today morons stick their guns out of a car window and just shoot
