A couple of things: Firstly, OnAllisonsSword, would you have all firearms confiscated and destroyed? Wanna see how well an unarmed population works? Check Chicago, the Liberal-in-Chief's hometown. They have the kind of gun control you dream about. They also have 20 plus children murdered nearly every month. If banning guns is the answer, why is it that these horrendous crimes almost invariably occur in places where guns are banned?( Perhaps if teachers armed themselves with AllisonsSword, but I would not recommend bringing one to a gunfight). The Israelis arm their teachers. When was the last time you heard of a crime like this being committed there?
