why are we evenhaving this discusion.
GUNS ARE GOOD.
I'm confused. Not taking a stance here, but where did he say we'd be better off if absolutely everyone was armed?

Look, I know Silencer can be abrasive at times, but I don't understand your vitrol.
Did anybody else actually read this?

He's suggesting that schools be a free-for-all as far as guns go. A school! Again, I'm not talking here as pro-gun or anti-gun, I'm talking as a teacher. I can't buy enough pens because they constantly go missing and he expects a gun not to fall into kids' hands.

it needs to be an extension of yourself.
that imho is how you "carry" a gun.
it being an extension of yourself, withouth it you feel naked.
with that said 98% of the population does not have that dedication.
with that being said such a person is a law abiding citizen. i know a couple of guys like that.
they are law abiding citizen. they wont go in gun free zones or go but feel uncomfortable/naked.
if you got 1 of 2 school officials who are like that i dont see why they are not allowed to carry.
or at university some of those students.
making it a free for all every teachers gets a gun. does not solve the problem
I disagree that loading people with issues up on antidepressants is "figuring out and helping mental health issues". That's just the modern day version of institutionalizing them. Besides, the issue (in cases like we're discussing) do not start with a disgruntled person. They start with the circumstances that lead to alienation, disenfranchisement, resentment, and ultimately rage. Throw in a media culture that glorifies violence, and it's only a matter of time.

Come on bro, think about that for a second. If every kid is home schooled, that means every home with a kid is a school. Whenever somebody is killed with a gun in a home that a child lives in, it would be a school shooting. Nice try, though.
