I really could type a book on this subject but to keep an argument from starting I will just say, the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Carrying is more than just a right, it is a very huge responsibility. It is a decision that must be taken with much much thought and preparation, it is a decision that can not be taken lightly the least bit. The effects of carrying if the need ever arises will have serious consequences and it will be life changing. No one, no matter the amount of training will ever be fully prepared for taking a life and dealing with the after math will be hard on anyone that is right minded. I will always carry, keeping these thoughts in the back of My mind but, I can not live with thought of innocent life being lost ( especially My family) when I could have done something to prevent it. I train often both mentally and physically to keep sharp. If You don't think You can handle the responsibility then please don't carry but also respect others decision to carry and don't try to regulate guns more as a knee jerk reaction to some idiots shooting places up and acting a fool. I have many guns that at no point have ever fired a single round without someone pulling the trigger, nor have they sprouted legs and went on killing sprees. Guns are tools just like any hammer or screw driver. Any of these are deadly when used by the wrong person in a inappropriate manner with intent to do harm to another. Okay, off My soap box.

Only the perpetrators of these horrific school shootings aren't too worried about consequences. They go out dead. They do seem to like the notoriety. Props to the PD in Oregon for choosing not to release the name.

Odd that the killed and wounded #'s in Oregon so closely matches the Waco police massacre. The media sure is keeping that under wraps.

American colonists had more rights under King George before the rebellion. Just contrast the Boston massacre trials to the lack of same at Kent State, bonus army and the two Wacos.

As some of you have said , The thing that really gets me is how people can be so STUPID , I also have guns in my life , my hole life . Life member of NRA . Been caring a 45 auto from 79 until now . The gun has never went crazy and shot innocent people . Look at the cars that any one can buy that will run , right off the show room , over 150 MPH , and sports bikes that is like 200 MPH . Ever saw what happens when they hit innocent people . I have . not pretty . Look at cars and DUI . You NEVER see those DA that want to outlaw guns , try to or want to outlaw cars because of drunk drivers . The last time I checked there was around 30 people that dies from drunk driving each day . There was a guy around here that lost his wife and 4 kids due to a drunk driver , He and only one child made it . He was a star football player for Alabama , His name is Siran Stacy . I will give up my guns when they take them from all the thugs . But I will still have to keep them , because the thugs still will try and steal from you . One last thing , look at Chicago , all the killings that happens up there . It sure as heck is not law abiding people who is doing the killings .

How did you know about this? I didn't until we went to the Bath Invitational for my kids XC. The museum is right there at the school. Good memory!
