1. The Glock 22 is not named after the number of rounds it will hold. In any case, the killer used a Glock 19.
2. Gun free zones are in reality helpless victim zones. the are a "happy, happy feel good" move that does noting in reality to ensure anyones safety. By definition criminals ignore such rules. No murderer wakes up in the moring and decides to kill people, and then realized that he can't in a no-gun zone.
3. A politician was recently assasinated in Japan, one of the most difficult countries for a private citizen to own a firearm.. . yet a criminal was able to get one. Gun laws only disarm the law abiding.
4. You fear what you don't understand. You don't understand how I can carry a gun every day and not lose my temper and shoot someone... or perhaps how the gun doesn't jump up and start shooting on it's own. Becuae YOU lack self-discipline you assume everyone else does as well.
5. In a "free society" your fears would not attempt to exert control over me. Yet, you are afraid and so I must be controlled. You aren't controlling the gun, it is an inanimate object after all. You are about controlling people.
6. Your opinions offend and frighten me. We should do away with the First ammendment to prevent people like you from scaring people like me.
