If I were even just a minute's worth of distraction until the big dogs arrived, I`d gladly have been there to keep those babies safe. :(

@ Mel: Well, I'll tell you one thing. I certainly wish *you* were at Columbine or Sandy Hook or Aurora. My family is from Connecticut and in the wake of Sandy Hook, the grief in that small state was overwhelming. I don`t think words can describe it.

Squrlz n Loo: I agree wholeheartedly! But you can't restrict/deny all because of few, thus the *need* for safety and familiarity classes & education on firearms usage, rather than "ban the evil guns and idiots that love them!" tirades. Yes, its my Right to possess firearms, but *I* have a responsibility to care for that Right and not take it lightly or flippantly. I make sure my tools are cared for and my skills are honed else what the heck is the point in carrying?

Joe Average is NOT likely to have any kind of proactive reaction to a chaotic dangerous situation without said training/education and it will likely be reactive and detrimental. (see training ref heh)

No one can say for certain any kind of outcome, especially when you have human beings in the mix, but an undeniable possibility is that if ONE person had a gun at Columbine or Sandy Hook or Aurora... just ONE, things could have ended far differently and less tragically. Isn`t that be

@ Lauriloo: I dunno. If Mel's a former firearms instructor, I`d take her word for it if she says she could hit a target even in the midst of a chaotic situation. I don`t think it`s possible for anyone to provide proof of that ability on here, as you seem to be requesting.

@ MelCervini: Would you agree with one of the general ideas Lauriloo`s been positing: Most people who are not getting regular and frequent firearms instruction would have a hard time using their weapon competently in an unexpected and chaotic situation? That`s an innocent question I`m putting to you, by the way; I`m not presuming to know the truth one way or the other. But didn`t I once see a study where they trained people with fake guns, then staged a sudden random-shooter event--and even with recent training, most of the people messed up? Anyone know the video I`m thinking of?

You're actually demanding that a Marine provide evidence that they are proficient in the use of firearms.

The sky must look a particularly nice shade of green in your world Loo.
