I don't see how carrying one would make you any safer in that situation.

No, but it just proves that guns don't equal high homicide rates.

Not sure what you're referring to.

I did the only thing I can do to help, I created a facebook page. I am working on getting the information on how to donate up on the page, the idea for the page is to use the same security we use in big city courthouses and airports in schools or any place where there are lots of children with a few unarmed adults....

if you agree like and share..

Not sure what good it will do if any, but I felt the need to try something.
I believe that one childs life is worth more than the money it would take to make these changes. Of course it will not stop all tragic events, but schools are very vulnerable, and have more valuables than any bank.

People on conservative radio shows right now are actually calling in and blaming video games. Why are people so unwilling to acknowledge the fact that some people are just f*cking not right in the head?
Meanwhile, people on liberal radio shows are calling in blaming guns. Based on who's less stupid, I'd say the liberals win this battle.

Not really. For all we know Russia's murder rate would be fifty times higher if they had as many guns per capita as the US.

Probably would. Russians are crazy. They have nothing to do but enjoy really gloomy weather and drink vodka. That probably gets boring after a while.

That may be true. All I'm saying is you can still have high homicide rates without guns. What about Norway? According to a Harvard study, Norway has the highest rates of gun ownership in Western Europe, yet they have the lowest murder rate.

Something to keep in mind...

Is printing a gun the same as buying a gun?

3-D Replicators (like the Replicator 2 from MakerBot)
can create working assault rifle parts thereby making
it possible to actually print gun parts in your home.
It only costs about two grand now and will only get
cheaper over the next few years.

That's nowhere near as feasible for the common thug than contacting his dealer for a 200 dollar piece that got sent over the border because of the new market that just opened up in the states...
