I seen that as well. I just got off the phone with my Senator's offices expressing my opposition to these new proposals. I am all for making schools safe however nothing Obama stated would have even remotely come close to preventing Newtown, Aurora, or Columbine. This is nothing but a vulture preying on this tragedy in hopes of pushing his agenda. I encourage you all to contact your respected representatives and express your thoughts regardless of what side you fall on.

There is a YouTube post (sorry, at work and cannot access YouTube) from a lady testifying at the Brady Bill hearing back in the 80's. She was at a McDonalds when a guy walked in and shot 20+ dead. She stated she lost her father and mother. She had a gun but the laws prevented her from having it, etc. Very very strong testimony and it sums up my feelings.

As long as she knew how to use the gun and WOULD have used it, then it may have made a difference. I'm not disagreeing, just trying to look at it from all angles. A lot of people have guns--would they have used it and used it properly in that situation? We'll never know. And have not seen the YouTube post either.

LTC Kevin Grossman shared the story of a Deputy Sheriff in a mid-western town whose daughter was killed when a gunman attacked their church. The deputy explained that despite the fact that he carried his gun all of the time while off duty that out of respect for the members of the church that he never carried his gun inside the church. He was at a church function on a weekday evening when a gunman came into the building and opened fire. The deputy said that he would have been able to kill the gunman very quickly but he didn't have his own gun. Instead, he watched in horror as his daughter was shot and killed. All he could do was throw himself in the path of the bullets to try to keep her from getting shot.

There was a gunman who attacked people at a church in Colorado Springs. An armed security officer killed that gunman after his initial attack and saved countless lives.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. To those sheep who demand protection but are offended by the very means of that protection I say pull your head out of your third point of contact and shut the hell up!
