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.

A lot of governments on this planet buy weapons from US weapon manufacturers. We are supplying the world with weapons and then wonder when those weapons are used against us. 

Quoting Citygirlk:

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.

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.

You and I both know why the gun ban doesn't work here. People can leave the city and get them elsewhere. Legally. It's redundant without meaningful gun laws that are enforced at the federal level. It won't stop everything, but it would definitely curb what is going on here in Chicago.

Something has to give -- and soon.  The homicide rate is climbing  steadily and the police have no control over the situation, or certain areas of the city.

If there was meaningful development in those areas, with education and business and better access to resources, I know the murder rate would come down. People are killing each other over control of very little resources. That's just one part of it. Also, too many were raised in a kill or be killed manner. That will take time to unlearn. There's so much that can be done and the police can only do so much. Gun laws can only do so much.

Police arrested a dude wandering around a high school in our city. They arrested him for trespassing and found 4 legal registered guns in his home. He said he was bullied in that school and he was there to "face his fears".
People are going crazy.

I agree with you.  Kids are being raised in `hell holes' with not a glimpse of a future that does not include a survival of the fittest attitude.

While he was trespassing, I think you just proved the point.

Legal gun owner, guns were left legally in his house, he went to the school unarmed, to heal.
