BREAKING NEW....Locked down at a High School...4 total guns found! Rifle...shot gun..

Posted by   + Show Post

Westminster, CO.  What the heck is going on in our schools?  Especially, being this is CO once again!  Honestly, if I was raising my kids now days, I don't think I could have them attend public schools.  I would have to home school them.

Gun bans do not work because criminals do not obey the law.


Quoting mehamil1:

I don't have the answers to this problem. I'm only explaining why the gun ban doesn't work here in the city of Chicago, my home. 


Quoting LoveMyBoyK:

Using that logic, a national gun Ban Would be equally ineffective Since people can just go to Mexico or, easier still, order them on the internet.

Quoting mehamil1:

The reason why it doesn't work here in Chicago is because anyone can leave this city and get weapons somewhere else and then bring it back here. Having guns banned in the city but not the state or at the federal level is an exorcise in redundancy. 


Quoting LoveMyBoyK:
Yeah, they need stricter gun laws, like those in Chicago, where strict gun laws have eliminated gun violen ... oh, wait.

Quoting katy_kay08:

I'm not all that surprised that it's Colorado.  There seems to be a very prevalent gun culture there.

Seems as if all the crazies that could no longer afford to live in Cali - moved to Colorado.

Quoting Naturewoman4:

Yeah, well I don't know why it's CO.  I mean it seems like it would be happening more in CA, Chicago places like that.  I believe the guns were found out aways on the grass part of the school.  Also, that a nearby house had a break-in.

The guns ended up there because someone broke into a home and tried to steal them seems to be the reason.

I understand your fear but shootings can happen anywhere. People were killed in a movie theater last year. Gabrielle Giffords was shot (and a little girl was killed) in a supermarket. You can't live in a bubble.

Why is that so hard to understand? PA is working on the Florida Loophole Law" for this very reason.

Doesn't Mexico have gun control laws? And don't they get most of their guns from us? 

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Here's the thing, that argument is stupid. It's been hashed and rehashed. I am tired of it. 

If criminals do not obey the law, then fuck all laws. Why bother with any laws at all? - that is the nonsense comes out of that argument. I am not in favor of gun prohibition but gun control. The vast majority of people are in favor of that.
