How many of u gun experts would charge shooters(?) armed with ARs with your side arm?

I suspect u would take cover and wait for special armament and weapons to defeat the assaulting terrorist?

If not, I'd ask have u learned nothing from the action of the cops that arrived first on the scene at Parkland?

Teachers with side arms being fired for not rushing in is what I predict.

How can we accept the decision to arm teachers? The REPUBLICAN congress has failed to stem the death toll from terrorism and mass shootings in churches, schools and public venues for decades. Even cops knew they we outgunned and refused to enter and confront the AR 15. Anyone who shoots a pistol and an AR knows immediately that is a fools errand.

REPUBLICANS care more about NRA campaign support more than the voting masses. Older white Americans are indoctrinated by the corporate media and will vote as usual.

What will these Parkland 18y/o young people bring to the electoral process though? We just saw a Democrat smash down a heavily republican “Gerrymandered” (stacked deck/rigged) state.

Republicans are so corrupt they must be smashed because they refuse to do the business of the masses.

Will Americans EVER get it that Vampire entities will eventually dominate and consume us.

Corporations fit the description of Vampires. They control (suck our economic life blood) our (global and American) government and they don't die.

A essential additional step to gun removal, ImO, would be to take Corporations -- as presently constituted -- out of the picture and rework the concept end-to-end.

Since presently, their ONLY motive is profit at ANY social cost, Corporations must be radically redefined in a manner to force them to consider the social consequences of their actions and their policies ! ! !

The first -- and the most effective step -- would be to eliminate "limited liability". . Corporate Governance AND STOCK AND BOND HOLDERS must be held PERSONALLY civilly and criminally liable and accountable for any crimes committed by the Corporation. . Destroying the economic basis of a community via outsourcing is an example of what should be designated a Civil Crime, while Pollution falls into the Criminal category, since life is directly at stake.

Until we can clean up the millions of guns (period) we ought to have laws that require all guns in civilian hands to be modified limiting hand guns to 10 (? or less) rounds and long guns to 4-5. High velocity weapons like the .223/5.56x45mm need to be illegal.

Chicago "IS A STATE" with a long history of violence back to Al Capone days. It is a central midwest hub for guns and drugs from other states. It IS A STATE that grew into a crushing urban blight from industry outsourcing resulting in poverty and it attendant socio-economic ills. The flow of guns from outside the city only exacerbate the effects of economic strife and overbearing policing and race relations.

One thing is known. No amount of BS from a Blowhard like u DOAkolov has anything of substance to offer on Chicago violence. Take guns out of the picture and gun violence will decline though.

The opinions of anyone who consistently feels free to dismiss -- without consideration -- ideas which are in opposition to his are most likely worthless.

Such folk live in a private cocoon of their own spinning ! ! !

yawn...how childish. This is from a zealot in libby lalalogic land that stated and I quote, "All gun owners secretly want to kill someone" end quote...which gives Mr. Wollschdts and big fat -0- in the credibility dept. and highlights the need for many hours of anti libby delusion therapy. Permission granted to rave on..Its a riot!

All Gun Owners should be required to donate one month of their time per year PER GUN toward public Protection via participation in a "Well-Regulated Militia".

THAT is very "2nd-Friendly" approach ! !

The NRA is willing to sacrifice our children if it means more profit for the gun industry.

“An hour after the Florida governor signed into law a gun control bill, the NRA filed a law suit against the provisions raising the age to 21 to be able to purchase any gun and the three day waiting period on issuing a license to carry. The NRA lawsuit cited the 2nd and 14th amendment.”

Their irresponsible greed is huge they are intolerant of even the paltry measures of the Florida legislature and governor.

I will repeat an oft use Clinton/Gore phrase, "Republicans are on the wrong side of history".

"The feel good gun laws have worked in every country they have tried in" But antisense...when will you tell us about the success of your "liberal" feel good gun laws in the "country" of...mmm...say...Chicago? They have enough gun laws on the books for three States..Good ahead Genius...Enlighten us Please! Isn't it odd these delusional "liberal" oddities and throwbacks kick and scream about a single weapon that's involved in roughly 3% of crime (including all other rifles and shotguns in the 3%)yet sits silent while minorities and gang banger/druggies murder each other daily in Democrat ruined cities with handguns. Racist? Don't care because its minorities killing each other? Because your script tells you to say AR? Why aren't YOU screaming about, say Glocks? Oh Wait..Is that one of YOUR "new sexy weapons" u bragged about? I guess then..its ok..Right corporal? Its just all soo very irrational and hypocritical. Join The NRA Today!

Feel better about yourself Mikeyboy...move to Australia? In the meantime anti...go out with YOUR "new sexy weapons" (end quote)you bragged about and protect manatees from Republicans..cause really credible "liberals" like you (excuse me - lololololol) know full well that.. Now, What was it you told us to prove your condition is sliding downhill quickly..Oh that's right...your amazingly insightful comment.. "All Republicans want to kill manatees" end quote. Shouldn't you be out roadside picking up litter instead of polluting these pages with your ignorant hate based lies and bizarre wild eyed "liberal" claims? It is entertaining granted and good for folks to see to reassure themselves they made the right choice at the ballot box. Poor things..lost balls in high weeds. Turn in your "new sexy weapons" then get back to us or remain the incredible "liberal" hypocrite u are.. Join The NRA Today and fight "liberal" ignoran
