Mcgov, what are you on about? I've never seen armed police in this country at all. They respond to armed robberies and shootings, places where somebodies life is at risk. By no means do they wander the streets with guns.
You might also fancy looking at the armed crime rate of the UK vs USA, waay lower over here.

Hey McGov, you might want to take back the first demotivator seeing as most Americans are either liberal or moderate.

Well if the other kindergarteners had guns then this might not have happened.

J.H.C.... What dumb poo let his kid near a G D gun..?
Obviously some idiot.. went "hey who cares about teaching my child gun safety.." Let them just shoot up a school...Instead of teaching them about GUN SAFETY.. FFS.. I totally agree with 'Australian' gun safety... poo my 6 y/o.. knows how to fire a gun... Yet he also knows the consequences of firing that gun! And I dont think hhandgun's should be allowed to the general public!

Oh, I forgot this

Incidentally ABC keeps coming up first in my google searches. but I'm sure you can find more examples. Maybe the BBC has some?

what about a loaded gun in a safe that can be opened in a matter of seconds.
You seem to have misrepresented the person you were citing by combining two separate points into one. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and suggest that it wasn't deliberate.
As I am aware there are gunsafes that can be opened in seconds, I don't have one but I know that they exist, surely enough time to dissuade an intruder. Equally, an unloaded gun, within arms reach, would do the same.

Furthermore, there a lot of people, in Arizona for example, who are subject to being invaded by Mexican drug cartels. Police have been threatened and people kidnapped. I guess these are the people who are "not in any immediate danger of being invaded"

Hope this helps.

Would a mod please discipline MaximumTroll, I believe their trolling and insults have gone far beyond the limits here.

It's to the point of stalking now, enough is enough.

If the gun was locked in a gun safe, it never would have went to school (the best scenario). If it was unloaded as it should have been (even if it was in the backpack) it wouldn't have gone off.

I'm curious as to the sense behind this aspect of the gun argument in the USA.

The most common argument in favour of guns being available to everyone is defence of self or others. Sure, people mention militia and it's a valid point but it's irrelevant to the USA for the forseeable future so it has no urgency. You're not in any immediate danger of being invaded or being ruled by a brutal tyranny.


An unloaded gun locked in a safe is completely useless for defence. Almost anything is more useful for defence than a gun you haven't got that doesn't have any bullets in it anyway.

"Excuse me, burglar, would you mind waiting for 5 minutes while I get my gun and my bullets and load it so I can shoot you?"

I jest, why are guns still legal in America really? An item with the sole purpose of killing. Begs belief.

Culture. It's part of their heritage and most people in the USA either consider it worth the many lives it inevitably costs or don't think about it at all because it's part of their culture.

They're stuck with it, anyway. Trying to outlaw guns in the USA would probably be futile and might be counter-productive. They're too engrained into the country.

Why do liberals think that gun control will mean less gun crime?
If someone is willing to commit one of the most egregious crimes of all (murder), what makes you think they'll respect gun control laws?

I know @M_Archer! wft eh? I always think of this when the liberals say 'more laws = safety'...

Da Boss: Gerry1of1 ratted us out boys, we're gonna get our revenge tonight!
Da Boys: YA!
Da Boss: We're gonna blow up his car with TNT!

Da Boss: And burn down his house with gasoline!
Da Boys: YA!
And Rape his wife!
And his children!
And his poodle!
Da Boss: And then Boys, we'll shot Gerry1of1 in the head with a shotgun!
Da Boys: But BOSS! Dat's ILLEGAL to use a gun! We'll get in trouble!
Da Boss: Oh, you're right... we'll stab him!

Hate to spot the old saying again:
If you make guns illegal, only criminals will have guns...
Take a few seconds if you don't get it... there, see the point?
According the the police spokesperson, "It's a crime to make a gun available to a child". So, should we make something a crime twice over?
Maybe, just maybe, enforce the laws we have, before we run out and make some new laws for a PR fix.

I heard an elderly man explain it this way: (I paraphrase, of course, he was talking about a knife ban in all schools, which passed of course: zero tolerance!)

"When I was a boy, all the boys carried pocket knives to school. We all had one, but no one EVER used one in a fight, that would be shameful! If you did threaten to stab someone, every boy who heard it would stop you; would defend whoever was being threatened. So it's not the knives in school that are the problem, it's that kids feel free to use them without shame, without their friends even trying to stop them."

It is the parents' responsibility to teach their children about the obvious dangers of firearms and to keep the gun in a guarded location unknown to the child.

'Gun Control' in general has nothing to do with it.

If anything, the adults shouldn't be allowed to have kids, The story was in Houston, which does have some independent street gangs, especially near that school. Most likely one of the parents of the child who brought the gun has some connection to gangs.

They're just not parent material.

1) Make registering gun ownership mandatory.

@tiredofnicks: that's been done in Canada! It was supposed to cost 2 million dollars and be finished in 6 months!
Well, 15 years an MANY BILLIONS (yes billions!) of dollars later it STILL is an unfinished fiasco! And it has not prevented ONE single crime! In fact the errors or typos in the forms have created thousands of 'criminals' whose only offense is incorrect spelling on their paperwork. Not by them, by the beurocrats, eh?

That was only for long rifles, pistols have been registered in Canada since 1936...

that was a hard interview to watch, because the lady talking for CNN was a drating idiot! "can you tell us what was going on when this gun fired at lunch and what were the reactions?" its common sense dumb ass! they were eating food, thats what was going on, and the kids are 5-6, so they were scared poo-less at the loud sound of gunfire. now ask a question that doesn't have a stupidly obvious answer and actually contributes to the story....

If the same laws were in place to keep stupid people from having kids as there are for guns, this wouldn't be as big of a problem.
