Depends on your skills...if you know how to use your weapon, the fact your opponent can spray bullets don't matter.

Furthermore, if we outlaw the guns I'm talking about, then it's a matter of attrition....once they are no longer sold, every one of them taken out of ciruclation by whatever means is a tangible gain in public safety.  Eventually, even thugs won't have them.  Granted, 'eventually' here means many years, but what the farg, it's worth getting started on, I think.

In many parts of the county it is a hell of a lot easier to get a gun than a  fishing liscence.
Splains that to me.

I'm sure I'm not the first to say this, but whatever. I find it interesting that the news media erupts with coverage when the dead count is 5 or 6 or15 in one event, but when it's 1 or 2 a day in similarly small geographic area constantly, it gets no national press.  Too much to report on, I guess.

The problem with that was if i remembe correctly, Cho was sent to therapy, or had to be evaluated mentally.  I do think that if you at any time are sent to, or have had to been treated for mental issues, there should be a reporting system in place.  I know that when i got my handgun and license, i had to sign 3 different places that i have not been in a mental institution, nor had any mental breakdowns or something to that effect.  The problem is right now there is no concrete way to prove that someone isnt lying.  The problem is rights of those, and doctors providing information to the gubament about one's mental state. 

Its a broken system but full scale banning of guns is a stupid idea.

Last night on the History Channel was something on the St Valentines Day Massacre in 1929. After that was supposed to be Snipers which seemingly would be awesome. They replaced it with some stupid shtein and I was pissed.

Article in Esquire about the guy from NIU. A long read, but pretty good and interesting.

This is another school shooting incident that was completely fabricated. As we all know, "guns don't kill people, people kill people". I find it hard to believe that anybody could massacre that many people without a gun. Never happened.
