    I am against arming teachers. I have no problem with hiring trained & armed security for schools. Putting a gun in everyone's hands isn't the answer. I have a permit to carry but I don't feel really comfortable about it, but I do it when I'm traveling alone.
    I was responding to another question Buzz.
    I agree, I don't beleive we should ask teachers to be armed.
    If we are serious, we should look at the model of security at schools that has been successful.
    Who might that be??

    Oh, yeah, the Israeli's.

    I realize that clip is an after market add on. Do you think I'm stupid or something???

    Here is the website description of the clip. We all need something like that, think of the FUN we could have!

    Ultra High Capacity For Increased Shooting Fun

    Precision built, ultra-high capacity, drum-style magazine allows extended shooting strings and plenty of shooting fun with your favorite AR-15 or M16 rifle. Made from extra-strong polycarbonate resin with a clear back cover so you can see at a glance the remaining rounds. Holds a maximum of 90 rounds of .223 Rem./5.56 NATO ammunition and is guaranteed not to jam or malfunction. Offset design keeps the weight of all rounds directly below the magazine well, so the balance point of your rifle remains unchanged. Very easy to load, includes a 10-round loading chute and stripper clips to help speed reloads.
    Buzz, it appears your issue is with clips!!!!

    The whipped up emotional outrage Response was clarifiying mistakes by the OP and not-emotional over "assault weapons" would be "cool posturing" might want to re-read Stan. It was Cool the posturing. Not cool lposturing. to the ultimate.

    A tri tronic e-collar can be used in an "horrific manner."

    Maybe, big claim as we have never seen you shoot. But I digress.

    Your comparison is way off. The murders were commited at extremly close range with a light weight, easily concealed, highly moble, and effective platform. The ease in which an AR platform can be made to be mis-used is, IMO, the issue, not the platform itself. I have not seen any magizines offered in the "holds 30 rounds" class for my BAR.

    Again, Cool the posturing and work on solutions Regards

    I want answers too.

    I want to know why every year since the 60's MORE & MORE Gun Regulation Laws have been passed under the guise of 'Protecting the Innocent' yet they have done just the opposite and a strong argument could be made that these laws actually have put MORE innocent people in harms way.

    So why? why are all these new laws year after year not working?

    Good Read here;

    Stan, "Secular Progressive" is a term entirely created by Bill O'Reilly. If you read or listen to him expound on the subject, he makes McCarthyites look like Boy Scouts. If you break it down, it actually means "non religious affiliated person or group that seeks new and improved methods". Does NOT mean God hating communists. I know why we own the firearms we do, but definitely do not believe they should be bragged on, advertised, pushed on other people or placed in the hands of any person who accepts a teaching certificate. (I know a lot of really immature, not so bright teachers, also some very talented and capable individuals). What people fear from "assault weapons" is......uh.......assault! People today are so quick to use catch phrases and slogans, that the things are identified by their names, not their function. Weird freakin' world.
    PS, was that a new way of saying, "show me yours and I'll show you mine" Little too old for those kinda games!

    Nice deflection, OMG I let my fat finger slip, don't address the issue.
    YOU are posturing based solely on emotion, not facts.

    Making more laws will not slow down outlaws.

    The issue is broader than liberals feeling good about their knee jerk emotions.
