Here is the real question strictly pertaining to past and FUTURE acts like those in Newtown. What is the only thing that can stop a lunatic with a gun hellbent on shedding blood........another gun? Now the left wing might be confused by this elementary level of logic.......the REAL question is how long do you want said person to be unabated on his/her rampage. Considering that the 911 response time on the Sandy Hook call took 20-ish minutes......the only thing that could have potentially improved that outcome would have been an armed and trained teacher or hired guard on site. To deviate over to the hypothetical liberal mindset........Lanza COULD have killed just as many with a standard chef knife in those 20 minutes.
