Remember this man?



He killed thirteen people on a military installation, surrounded by guns and people who were trained to use them.

More guns will not solve the problem.

2. No discussion needed.

the meme that we need more guns is insane. The meme that we need our guns to stop an aggressive Government is sheer stupidity on a grand scale.

3. You mean military bases where all the guns and ammo are locked up except for some MPs?

Somehow, I don't think that's what you meant.

11. So


To prevent further murders we should have guns laying on the teachers desk during lecture? To be sure that's not your argument.

13. So.. you like putting words in others mouth? And did you wash your fingers first?!? Eww!

No, I'm just saying that your example doesn't prove what you think it does.

4. Soldiers don't carry weapons on base

they are locked in armories except when being used for training.

The only armed people were a couple of civilian cops.

6. An active duty military installation without armed MPs?

Please, tell me how this makes any sense...

9. Civilian cops were used on military bases

because MPs were being used in their wartime role and being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Now that the war is winding down, the civilian cops have been let go and MPs are resuming garrison duties again.

10. It has more to do with ensuring weapons don't "walk away"

or get stolen.

7. The gun humpers

 

Are getting brave again after a few days. They're back out in droves to drive home their obsession.

"My Precious is my LIFE and you can't take it away or limit it in any way!"

Nothing about how insane it would be to have armed guards or teachers or WHATEVER to help turn America into even more of an armed camp than it already is.

Nope, their Precious rules their bubble.
