Armed guards in every school! Video surveillance of every corner!

Every email open to federal eyes!
Every website visited stored for future access!
OnStar spying on every conversation in your car!
Every cell talk and text recorded!

Only this way can we be safe!

Oh, and we all conceal carry, too.


Bull + Shit = this line of thinking.

1. Rocket launchers under every tree.

There is no way to control guns! There are too many! Arm the elves, arm the nuns, arm the puppies and kitties...

2. Add to that, where will the funds come from

The right wing wackos would say out of Medicare and Social Security. I don't think so.

6. Someone going off like Adam Lanza is suicidal

Let's imagine if there was a guard with a gun in the Newtown School last Friday. Adam would not have cared and would not have been deterred. He would have just planned better and mowed down the guard with that high-power rifle with 100 rounds.

11. The guns were legally purchased. NRA defeated a ban on assault rifles in 2011. If the ban was in

place Adam's mother would have had to hand over the assault rifle and high capacity magazines and the gun shops she legally purchased them would never have been allowed to sell such weapons. Yes, this tragedy could have been avoided.

13. I'm perfectly fine with Armed Guards in every school. Tax the gun owners to pay for it.

Register all the guns and the magazines and tax them according to their killing capacity. High round magazines and assault weapons would be taxed at a higher rate than guns of lesser fire power. Gun Safes should be required for anyone who has a gun in the home. Yearly inspections in the home of the gun owner should be required for both safety and tax assessment. And last but not least all gun sales should be transferred through licensed firearms dealers.

And lets suppose a gun owner is facing a very large tax bill for the 1/2 dozen assault weapons and magazines he owns. He could then elect to surrender the gun and receive a tax credit worth the market value of the gun toward the taxes on his remaining guns.

14. and what if a security guard had shot Adam dead?

Let's imagine there had been a security guard or even that the principal had a gun ...

If either a guard or the principal had shot Adam dead, they would have been held responsible. That mother of his would have sued the school and the people involved.

15. As if schools didn't already feel like minimum security prisons.

We need to up that feeling to maximum security prison. Arm every teacher with guns and tasers. I'm sure that will go astoundingly well.

I'm right there with you, this line of thinking is a dead end and a distraction from real solutions.

16. Video survellance of schools sounds like a good idea to me.

Big business has cams and guards on their grounds.

The email and website ships have already sailed.

The cell and text ships have already sailed.

Black boxes for new autos are all but mandated by the feds.
