    No one would have been hurt if only we had listened to the NRA and there had been an armed police officer present........

    Oh wait...apparently there was:

    To be fair banning assault rifles and high capacity clips would not have stopped it either. There really is no way to prevent these shootings from happening. The best that can be done is to lessen the severity of them, hopefully.

    Sympathies to the victims..

    Columbine had an armed community police officer on campus, he was in the cafeteria when the carnage took place..

    It really is if we focus on all the good that happens everyday. The problem is that our media only tells us the bad news.

    Al Gore's Current TV was actually like CNN and MTV combined ... but wide ranging and not just bad news ... how di that go for him? Nobody would watch PR ... it's why Americans like reality TV - they love the train wreck.

    What you say is true. It is also way wrong.

    The numbing of America continues. What's the big deal with war when we get our IV drip of violence every freaking day, it seems.

    This does show how gun control might lessen the damage, though. How many would have been killed if the scumbag had an AK and Bushmaster instead of a shotgun?

    Early reports also seem to indicate that the shooter was talked down by an unarmed school administrator and an unarmed teacher.

    Seems far better than what might have happened if the teacher or administrator had been armed and it turned into a shoot out or a stand off.

    my buddy has a black powder rifle.......we were at the range plinking, and we first used musket balls which would put a hole through a plastic gallon jug and the water would squirt out the side.........we then used these hollow point projectiles (you have to pack the gun with these powder discs).......all you would find is the cap, and maybe the handle......it would blow out s person's mid-section......

    Despite what you say a 30 .223 round clip from an automatic weapon, creates much more carnage and is much more lethal than say a 5 round shotgun clip.

    There is also a "scare" factor.. which contributes to panic. The AR 15 is only good for "engaging" the target at a rapid rate of fire.. Adam Lanza did not misuse the gun, he used it as it was intended.. to incur mass casualties.

    5 Round Shotgun Clip? What the hell is that? 5 Rounds of 00 Buckshot contain 45-60 of approx .33 size projectiles. Only in your world is 30 greater than 45. Scare factor ? Obviously you have never heard the sound of a 12 gauge Shotgun being racked. Please continue to show us your vast knowledge of weapons and ammunition.

    That is why, if I ever were to own a gun, it would be a shotgun.

    Behind a closed door, I figure simply the "chhh-chuk" noise would scare a lot of potential threats.

    Yeah...an automatic weapon...:rolleyes:

    You apparently missed the point of that video that shotguns are capable of carrying 20 round drums.

    I shoot occasionally and am aware of many weapons..

    You and another poster rant and rail how safe these assault weapons are and claim how you would rather be taken down by a an assault weapon than a shotgun, many call that suicidal ideation..

    All clips that hold multiple rounds should be banned.. including shotguns.

    BTW you cannot hunt with an AR 15..

    20 round drums should be outlawed..
