I am really tired of the shopping mall / movie theater / open public space vignette. If there are 100 people with guns at the mall, the point is NOT that they can kill the bad guy who is about to shoot up the place. THE POINT IS THAT THE GUY IS NOT LIKELY TO CHOOSE THAT SITE FOR A MASS MURDER ATTEMPT. Am I the only one who thinks that way?

they're stuck on stupid.

"progressives" are all too willing to consider trashing the Constitution with Utopian-fantasy gun control and mental testing that cannot work and is impractical,but absolutely rule out allowing armed,carry-permitted school employees that HAS worked before in a couple of schools and other public places,doesn't cost anything,and is very practical. VERY do-able,and EFFECTIVE.

So it's not really about keeping the children safe.
After a tragedy like the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn., the injection of anything short of seriousness into the subsequent public discourse about guns is touchy. But last week, the National Rifle Association blasted numerous rounds into that particular barrier with NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre's mouth.

The organization's hysteric solution to gun violence in America is to put designated sitting ducks -- er, "armed police officers" -- in every American school. Apparently the secret is now out that such places are "gun-free," and LaPierre says that "(gun-free school zones) tell every insane killer in America...
