#10 Let me see if I have this straight. The government that attempts to clandestinely ship guns to AQ and MB elements across the globe, arms selected drug cartels in Mexico, and turns a blind eye toward urban, gang firearms murders in America...... now wishes to disarm law abiding US citizens ?

#11 Right. And they'll give gun-law waivers to union members and their own bodyguards.

#13 First disarm the Military, all of it, then talk to me.
Until you do, you're not serious.

#14 Matt has it right.
Instapundit has been asking what kind of guns Rupurt Murdoch's and Michael Bloomberg's bodyguards carry.
I have a more basic question as a citizen: why are their lives worth more than mine?
You want to freeze all this stupid blabber about taking away guns, pass a law saying that the bodyguards of the rich and powerful have no more rigs than you and I have for concealed carry. Argument will be over in a New York minute.

#16 Thanks, Rantburgers. I knew I could count on you. I needed a little bit of balance for all the crap that's been coming from the media these past few days. I've been avoiding the television as much as possible but sometimes it still finds me and they only hard questions they are asking seem to be about finding a way around the Second Amendment. Of course, if you're Eric Holder or Barack Obama, you don't need no stinkin' Constitution.

#19 We have fire alams, fire extinguishers, fire escapes, and so on to protect our kids from fire in a school. But violence in school affects far more every year than does fire.
Why then are the leftists who mandate all the things in the school systems so adamant about not having armed and trained teachers/staff, or police officers present in the schools?
We have armed personnel guard the government buildings and the politicians judges and bureaucrats who are in there - are our children and school buildings any less important?

#20 I'm a parent with 2 kids in school. I will be suggesting to the school principal that we implement a policy of 100% searches for ALL people entering the school. And this policy may also require the presence of a full-time armed guard to deal with high-risk offenders. I don't believe changes in the gun laws will alter the risks of school shootings in any measurable way. We will have to change safety & security at the schools themselves.
