    Clinton admin had a ban on assault rifles that ended a while ago. Pretty sure crime rate has been lower since the ban ended.

    Yeah, and I read section by section in my local library so I had the Malcolm Gladwell books and Superfreakeconomics in my stack too when I first read Black Swan so that was pretty interesting block of reading.

    "I wish to God she had had an M-4 in her office, locked up so when she heard gunfire, she pulls it out and she didn’t have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands and takes him out and takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids,” Gohmert said.

    As a teacher who practices lockdowns a few times a year, I'm curious as to how much time elapsed from when the gunman entered the building and/or fired his first shot to when he entered that classroom. How much detail as to what went on in the building has been released?

    Does anyone have any documented example where an assault rifle was used as protection by a citizen and not the military/police. Not saying banning assault weapons would do anything. Just curious.

    assault weapon ban didn't do much of anything. The rate was dropping before and after the ban.

    The data speaks for itself, I don't need an interpretation of the data. All it shows is that the violent crime rate went down after 1992, feel free to interpret it any way you feel fit.

    I have to say that the speech by Obama moments ago was very inspiring. I feel exactly how he does.
