My Plan for Eliminating School Shootings

I agree with Mr. Adams on expanding concealed carry. I fully support concealed carry because it has been shown through research that it does reduce crime and does make criminals think twice. I believe Ann Coulter even did an article about it recently on this site. But I do not believe that adopting his rather extreme position on abortion will have any effect. Abortion is a separate issue and one that has no bearing on this issue. Adams is doing just what Michael Moore does in turning a tragedy into a means of pushing an agenda. Abortion laws were different when Charles Whitman went on his rampage decades ago. Changing them won't affect the next mass killer in the slightest.

Abortion was the first step down the slippery slope of playing god. Add socialized medicine to a culture of death, and you will have people being "put down" against their will. Subtle and not-so-subtle pressure will be put on older people to ask to be "offed" when they are ill, disabled or debilitated by stroke and disease. The poor and handicapped will be especially pressured in old age to allow themselves to be "put out of their misery." It's going to be a brave new world. And, of course, sick and handicapped babies will be "euthanized" as well. I'd give it 20 years (max), if we're still around then.

What is your evidence that this is becoming a trend? If you believe this, that's one thing. But if you just assume or fear this, that's another. I try not to make predictions about the future because as we've seen from the 2012 Maya doomsday believers, extremes tend to be wrong.

You are wrong.

When you devalue life in one area you devalue life in all areas.

HOG, do you not consider abortion a violent crime? Do the math Skippy - violent crime SKYROCKETED with RvW..............victims that didn't have the slightest chance to defend themselves.

Time for you to consider position revision.

Please check the link I presented. Violent crime on the whole declined substantially after 1973. There were some spikes, but they had nothing to do with abortion and more to do with certain demographic shifts. As for abortion, that was around long before Roe v. Wade. And I don't see any logical reason to conclude that it is a violent crime. If you can explain how it is, I would love to hear it. But the abortion issue is so subjective because people can't agree on what constitutes a human being. Until that changes, I don't think it should be factored into the issue of school violence.

As a candidate for president of the United States, it is incumbent on me to make a statement regarding the Sandy Hook massacre and to explain how my policies would help prevent other such massacres should I become president. As I discuss this sensitive topic, it is also incumbent on me to sound more rational and articulate than the incumbent. That will not be difficult.
As president, I plan to attack the issue in two ways. First, I will use the bully pulpit to influence voters and state lawmakers. Second, I will take direct action to influence...
