Before i bought mine, i took a class at the local range.  These people were idiots...i felt as if i were in danger once we got to the range.  They would put their fingers on the slide, point the gun in my direction, and one dude would incessently pull the gun back by his ear, like clint eastwood, after every recoil.

No.  The aggregate amount of deaths from having an increase of overall gun ownership would me larger than any amount of lives that may be potentially saved in remote incedents.

Idiots indeed, they pointed the gun at you? That's like the number one thing not to do.

Not point, but theyd swing it and they'd have the business end pointed in my direction.  If youre pointing it anywhere BUT downrange, you endanger me and everyone else there.

If you can prove that an increase of gun ownership would decrease the aggregate amount of deaths, i would consider it.  But from my anecdotal experience, this would not be possible.

Actually, you need to prove the opposite. It's a Constitutional right.

Same thing - idiots and I must admit that'd scare me to death.

I'm not even sure it's up for debate.  As I recall, it violates Federal law to bring a firearm on a school's grounds.

Let me check, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people ot keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." 2nd Amend.

No mention of a classroom there.

To quote the words of one retarded republican senator "People kill people, guns dont kill people". Don't ask me for the solution but there ought to be some form of control.  Perhaps not total control cos I would like to protect my fam too but there ought to be stricter measures.

The issue is guns in a classroom.  The 2nd Amendment does not apply in this case--at least it has not been interpreted to do so.

Cite? b/c I think this was overturned, could be wrong though. Probably still a state law though.

Before calling somebody retarded, you should get the quote right, you look stupid otherwise. "Guns don't kill people, people kill people."
