My response to the Gun Grabbers in the wake of Colorado
I posted this on Facebook earlier, but I thought I'd throw it out here for comment too :)
I really don't understand the calls by the Gun Control crowd right now. The Colorado shooting had a police response under two minutes, the fastest I've EVER heard of, and 72 people were shot with 12 unfortunate souls dead.
This is the time for the gun banners to [shut up] and find something really interesting on the wall to stare at. How different would it have been if every adult in that place had been armed and trained in responsible and accurate handling of firearms? Not everyone would have had a shot, but SOME would.
Of course, if it were physically possible to prevent any private citizen from owning firearms... or even snap your fingers and cause all firearms to cease to exist; don't forget that this guy wired his place to explode. How many more would have been killed or maimed if he had used explosives instead of a gun?
Lets punish the deed, not the only effective tool for self defense.
