Take away guns and bad people can only use box cutters. Gun control worked well on 9-11. Think of how many more people might have died had the terrorists had guns on those planes.

Well of course your right about the box cutters, pretty much everyone on those planes died, but maybe what you meant was how many more hijackings were there going to be if we didn't use even the inadequate security..No 9/11's since we did and do a better job in security. Attempts are always being made, the cretins will always try, we have to be right every time we can't be wrong even once.

This deal was about letting a deranged kid roam the streets..Whose fault is that???

Even if there were a "shootout" on a large passenger jet,fewer people would die than if terrorists gained control of the plane to use as a weapon on some skyscraper full of people.
But just having several armed concealed carry permit holders aboard would deter terrorists,because it would be too risky to try to hijack the plane,their chances of success would be too low. They would have no way of knowing who is armed,or where the killing shot would come from. Plus passengers prone to being unruly or rude would behave themselves,knowing there's armed people aboard.

Criminals will find ways to commit crimes even if guns are not available.

The pity is that you had to ask. So many Americans have lost all common-sense. Common sense is what really made us great.
I thank the mostly terrible public school teachers and education administrators.

the way some people post here,it's easy to miss sarcasm.

you should see the replies Loyal Democrat gets!
he sucks in a lot of TH regulars.
In his weekly address to the nation, President Obama said that, “we have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this. Regardless of the politics.” He said that, “we have endured far too many of these tragedies in the last few years,” and pointed to the massacre in Connecticut yesterday as the latest in a number of recent incidents. So what does he mean by ‘meaningful action’? More gun control, of course.   

Yesterday, a Democratic lawmaker was even more forthright:

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who represents portions of New York City,...
