Kind of like ObaMao's principle and about bringing a knife to a gun fight.

I'm sorry, BK, when did I advocate for any of that?

And that's exactly the way conservatives argue. Just shout down straw man liberal positions because you can't address the substance of the conversation.

It is amazing how the right has no sense of reality.

This from a liberal who ignors the fact that they kill 1 million babies each year or think that somehow spending MORE money and getting us MORE in debt will be solved by raising taxes on those who provide all the jobs. Amazing. and people wonder why this country is spiraling into another Greece.

Care to cite your statistics and source, or do we just take your word for it?

Liberals will gladly relinquish private gun ownership no matter what the cost.

Yeah, you and every other conservative are so tough. We're all so proud of the man you are.

And let's be real, there is no level of anything that will get you to talk reasonably about gun control. And that's the entire point the left is trying to get across. Republicans would never relinquish private gun ownership no matter what the cost. That's a reality that I wish they would be forthright and admit.

So, Duke is making my point about how ridiculous it would be to introduce more gun rights into Kindergarten classrooms. Glad to see the conservative "slippery slope" argument being used effectively.

As to the comment above by Texas Eagle, there are many individual schools and districts that don't allow guns, and they haven't been attacked. The negation of an event doesn't man the policy carried some affirmative ability to prevent it. It must means nothing has happened yet.

I'm not saying that every single instance of gun ownership leads to accidents, far from it. What I'm saying is that this is a solution that offers more practical problems than the possibility that it will save lives. Statistics bear that out.

No you give people the right to survive if they want to, that's the right that the constitution gives us. You don't have to own a gun, you can die when things like this happen. Hell you have the right to die on your front porch in Chicago next to my neighbor, me i will be sitting there with my heater defending my right to life. when all the liberal crazies stop killing because society has created a bunch of males who never knew failure because we don't allow anyone to fail, i will begin to discuss some kind of gun control.

There is a school district in Texas (you can google to find out which one) that allows their teachers and administrators to carry with a CHL. This policy went into effect in 2008. No accidents and no assaults.

And let's give kindergarteners drivers licenses too! What a nut case you are!

For once I agree with liberals. It’s high time to have a conversation about guns. Let’s start with the problem that there are far too few guns on our streets.

Wait, we can’t have that conversation. In fact, we’re not supposed to have what people might commonly describe as a “conversation” at all. We’re supposed to shut-up and listen as liberals, barely masking their unseemly delight at the opportunity, try to pin the murder rampage of one degenerate creep on millions of law-abiding Americans who did nothing wrong. The conversation is then supposed to end with us waiving our fundamental right...
