If we have armed security guards in all schools....

...and if somehow they are able to stop all shooters before they are successful in killing anyone, future mass shooters will go to malls. If we arm mall security guards, future ones will go to individual stores. If we have armed security guards in every store, they will go to parks. And on, and on, and on.

Having armed guards everywhere is not the answer.

2. Getting all guns off the streets, means NO guns anywhere but a private home

 

Everyone's first amendment and basic declaration rights are violated by one gun in the street

guns=bully

nra=terrorist org

reclassify, reflame and ban them from the street

the NRA already wants more security, well, ONLY law enforcement and an eye in the sky and no guns in any perimeters.

3. Even Thomas Jefferson had the sense to put limits

In Two Drafts of the Virginia Constitution, Thomas Jefferson seeked to include this sentence: ""No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms (within his own lands or tenements)."

http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/no-freeman-shall-be-debarred-use-arms-quotation

The sentence didn't make it into the final draft of the Virginia Constitution. But even Jefferson had the sense to put some limits on arms.

4. F--k Thomas Jefferson. He said all MEN are created equal(not women, not blacks just his type)

 

and more and more people realize he was a fraud and a hypocrite. It's about time.

AND NOTE- HE SAID FREEMAN oops that means not all men, and what about Women???

7. People who like security guards everywhere should go to Los Angeles

There are security guards everywhere in L.A. They aren't armed with guns, but still it makes everywhere feel like its a bad area. Banks everywhere there have bulletproof glass. It really doesn't make you feel so good if you've been living in smaller safer city metro areas.

9. I remember the freeway shooting fad in California in the 1980s

All the hip, fashionable gun nut morons were doing it. It spread like a zombie virus.
