Do you think more good things or more bad things happen on a normal day because of cars? More people die from accidents than gun related injuries yet they're not banned because that would destroy the economy. What about knives? Hard to eat without one, used in all sorts of non violent ways. Banning them wouldn't have stopped 9/11. I can go on...

Yesterday a school shooting was quickly stopped before it escalated further thanks to an armed guard being on campus.

A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.

Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.
