I do believe if someone else in that school had a concealed weapon, that bastard shooter probably wouldn't have had the pleasure to shoot himself.
Most people don't have the guts to pull the trigger. But if they did, I think the damage qould have been much greater. Instead of a single bullet you'll have numerous one flying and whizzing simultaniously, many might not hit the criminal but others. Then with all the chaos people might mistake the criminal for another guy. Could easily happen.
You don't seem to understand that if guns are taken away people won't stop being killed.
Well I can't argue with that. Considering something like that already happened in the US. In the late 20th alcohole was banned. Soon organizations were borned and started smuggling it till it was relegalized.
Infact it gave birth to the mafia.
Though it's hard to say that you should ignore it. Not all the gunshot casualties are because of lunatics or criminals, some are accidents.
A few years ago a 4 years old shot his brother by mistake while playing with his father's gun.
So much for freedom.
I agree. This 'freedom' can bring much pain and harm if it's not wanted. Lets go back to germany, to the year 1919. The axis nations just lost
(well it's difficult to say someone won) and World War I ended. The US had this crazy dream to turn all the dictatorships to republics. Nations like Czech that was turned to Czechosolovakia, and most of you know that didn't last long till it turned to a dictatorship of the people.
The case was quite similar in germany. Not only that it lost it was also blamed for starting the whole war. Furthermore French sought everyway to weaken and humiliate Germany. This country was forced to be a republic against it's citizen's will so they apposed it and abhored the all idea.
The humiliation made them seek after revenge, and the Americans weakend the govorment by turning it to republic, that can be very unstable.
That was one of the reasons that caused World War II, and the death of 40 million earopeans. Though I don't blame them for that terrible war, I think the Americans should finally learn not to meddle in such affairs and understand that not everybody wants democracy, nor is it always the best solution, it can sometimes cause disasters.Arcan, don't start with the pics, remember what happened in the last thread.
