    Similar things were said about racial integration in the 50s.
    It's an issue of will.

    Step back and think about this for a second. Really.

    All schools, all daycares. Every toddler/child is such a likely target that it's not enough to have locked school doors. We need bullet proof glass; fortified doors. Armed guards ready for deadly force. Then there's recess... Gym time in fields. Sporting events. General school time get togethers. Getting to and fro schools. Then, welp. That was a lot of effort but now we can relax...ooopsie. Churches. Parks. Little league. Pop warner. Shopping malls. Turns out, people shoot people at movies....night clubs. Restaurants.

    Because why again? Oh that's right. Weirdos and weirdos who fetishize guns above everything else. Irrational. And not only irrational, but securing everything is wildly impractical. The logistics are massive. At best, better secured schools are a mitigation / stop gap. Pushing the shit further down the pipe.

    Don't assume bc I'm a gun owner I'm all about plinking. I mainly detonate large military grade munitions and tank caliber artillery. Plinking is for amateurs.

    My grandfather was the Artillery Commander of the 12th Armored Division during WWII. My father designed the guidance system for the Pershing Missile System. Let's just say I'm not impressed.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    So what is the solution. Ban all guns? Ar15's get all the press. But most all gun violence is hand guns.

    So ban all guns? Why don't you lilly white whole food upper crusters start w the homies in Englewood, 0block and Marcy projects. Let us know how that goes for you.

    Donchya know? You cannot care about children until you personally go down to Compton and start rounding up guns. Sorry I don't make the rules.

    Children. Your well being is of the utmost important to us unless it is inconvenient, expensive or impedes my plinking pastime. Do try to make the best of your school prison! Just like grandpa would have wanted.

    Jeez, man. I'm surprised.

    I'd prefer reinstating the AWB, but I'd be happy with starting registration, requiring background checks, waiting periods. Not cheezy insults.

    Maybe we should ban mental illness. Or maybe we should ban schools. I mean kids wouldnít get killed at school if they didnít go to school.

    We currently have much of what you just said.

    The US is a vast piece of land w many polarizing divisive cultures and issues. We essentially all live in our own bubbles.

    Let the states handle it. Vote.

    You know better than that.

    Those bubbles aren't bullet proof.

    Like slavery, suffrage, Jim Crow, prohibition, ad infinitum. All enormous cultural rifts.

    We're a great nation. Let's act like one.

    If you really want gun control and getting rid of the obscene amounts of guns and gun hoarding out there, just enlist a reconstituted
    Black Panther Party to start open carrying everywhere they go. If they enlist a majority of brothers and sisters to open carry, Iím pretty sure we will have gun legislation signed and sealed within a month.

    Yea, Or the exact opposite happens and we fuel the National arms race even more to keep up with each other.

    I kind of like the Gays for Guns concept better.
    Think of the memes! The gun fascion! Incorporating various calibers into their drag acts!

    Seems a pity that not having kids shot in their schools in this vast divisive piece of land (as a start) isn't enough to prick your bubble.

    Prick.
