No wonder you are an anti-gun Liberal.
If the 32 parents had given each of the their 32 kids a gun to take to school, there wouldn't be 32 kids dead today. An armed society is a polite society.
Good point. I live in Carson City now, which because of it's relatively small area, has gang problems all over. At the end of last year and into the beginning of this year, there were 5 gang related shootings within a 1 mile radius of my house, one shooting down the street from where I live, another that happened outside of a grocery store 30 minutes after my wife and I had finished our shopping. My wife and I have decided to take a few gun safety courses and will be applying for our permit to carry license and will have a firearm on ourselves at all times. We refuse to become a victim. As long as these arseholes are going to have guns and use, you can bet we're going to do everything we can to even the odds.
