Sources:ABC News says shooter was a 24-year-old male, had 4 weapons, was wearing bulletproof vest

anyone who says citizens who are armed is the way to deal with this is in a dream world.

yeah, a kindergarten teacher with a handgun is the best way to deal with a guy with 4 legal guns and a bulletproof vest (the irony is that there's a better chance of making bulletproof vests regulated than there is of guns...).

if whatever you're proposing still leaves it legal for people to own an arsenal with almost no legal oversight, just stop talking to me.

1. There really is no defense. We are all at each other's mercy and sanity.

6. Germany among other states requires psychological review before ownership...

There are a number of policy measures that could be taken that would reduce gun violence like this dramatically, but our politics (and the current SCOTUS) make it all but impossible.

4. Oh, they'll just say (in all naive' seriousness) that we can train teachers & students to take

the head shot. (only slightly facetious to what NRA crowd actually would use as a totally absurd rebuttal).

7. Yes any gun you want and a bulletproof vest..

all easily available throughout the USA.. which is quickly becoming another Pakistan!

Oh! but guns dont kill people,.,.people kill people...okay ..so lets continue to make guns...just keep them out of the hands of people!!

I bet the NRA is now very concerned...concerned about how much they will have to spend in PR and congressional bribes to offset this...
