Is it just moi, or is that just an opening right there for a lunatic? Of course a law abiding citizen wouldn't carry a gun there, but they're not the problem. The criminals are, and I criminal doesn't give a crap if it's banned, and basically that zone is an invitation.

    that's like advertising "hey! we are defenseless!" and from what i understand,they didn't have school shootings before 1995 before that gun free zone act went into place.

    You got it. Amazing.

    I retract my snide comment about your posting "I am a genus" on your profile. This post proves beyond a shadow of a doubt you have more brains then many of the "educated idiots" who run rampant on this site, and around the world, generally.

    Please accept my apologies.

    They have the worst crime rate.

    I believe that all free people can be trained in survival. Then they will appreciate the protection of carrying a weapon. Teach them how to use one. Then let them be prepared. Many kooks will stay a way when they it is known that the staff is arrmed

    You don't here of many people walking into a police station to commit mass murder.

    twenty years ago, before my military service, I worked for a couple of years in an extremely poor urban high school in Texas ... I held a Texas CCP at the time - it's lapsed now - and was asked to volunteer to be part of and augment the on-campus security team, along with our JROTC teacher, a retired Navy Senior Chief ... besides the two of us that team consisted of four 60+ year-old retired police officers, one of them a woman, and they were dispersed between five schools in the independant school district ... I checked in with my weapon daily about an hour before classes started, and carried concealed on campus every day ... within a week the entire 7500-student population knew - "Coach is carrying!" ... while there were still rare violent incidents involving student-on-student fights, nothing ever occured in my wing of the school or at any ballgame at which I coached ... the presence of a well-trained armed defender of his students was apparently a deterrent ... I loved my kids - especially the three or four rowdy-but-funny ones that seemed to be part of my classes / baseball team every year, and they knew I was there to protect them as well as to teach

    that school no longer exists, the ISD having closed it and put the dwindling student population together with one of the other schools in the district ... it also closed its junior ROTC program ... I don't know for sure, but I believe the new HS is much less safe

    We should ban guns for everyone who is sane.

    Let's see ... Columbine, Virginia Tech, Colorado movie theater, Sandy Hook. All gun free zones. Believe I'd avoid them.

    None of the NRA have ever said we should arm children. No right minded person REALLY thinks we should arm children. BUT Apparently because Law-disobeying folk kill with guns, The Law-Abiding folk must give theirs up.

    Training your son & daughter to shoot a rifle target or hunt is different from Just Giving them a handgun in a public place. Training your child, there's discipline involved.

    You re imposing your underage son or daughter to the use of a gun
    I as a civilian never needed a gun even do iworked as a salesman in the worst neighborhoods in new york and miami for more than 30 years
  • YourCom... cut and... 2012/12/19 18:02:10
    Who decides what's underage when there is NO LAW AGAINST it? The PARENT! Second: That may be true, but were you ever attacked?

    In new york you pull a gun you better use it because The penalty For pulling a gun is 3 to 5 years in jail
    In florida max is 10

    You're going to have to correct your grammar. I honestly do not know what the hell you just said.
  • Jim YourCom... 2012/12/20 09:09:49
    You need a refresher course in the English language. You should be able to read and understand what is written.
  • YourCom... Jim 2012/12/20 14:26:47
    I can, but one of his posts I really didn't understand (Mix of abbreviations, 'TXT' and no puncuation) I can read and understand what he's saying just fine. I'm asking: how can he call me an idiot when he obviously needs a grammatical check? And you're saying instead of *him* (A supposed fifty-seven year old with a college degree, who's calling ME stupid) adjusting himself & correcting his grammar, I need a Lesson in Grammar to understand him. Does that make sense? Wouldn't English teach me that his is RIDDLED with errors? Unless *YOU* are trying to imply a reversed view of the world where *HE* is using correct grammar. If so, you are insane.

    The Colorado shooter may have chosen Cinemark theater because out of all the movie theaters within 20 minutes of his apartment showing the new Batman movie that night, it was the only one where guns were banned. In Colorado, individuals with permits can carry concealed handgun in most malls, stores, movie theaters, and restaurants. But private businesses can determine whether permit holders can carry guns on their private property. Most movie theaters allow permit holders carrying guns. But the Cinemark movie theater was the only one with a sign posted at the theater’s entrance. Gun-free zones are a magnet for those who want to kill many people quickly. Even the most ardent gun control advocate would never put “Gun-Free Zone” signs on their home.

    Gun owners stop an average of 650,000 crimes per year. The Oregon mall shooter killed himself when confronted by an armed citizen. The Sandy Hook shooter killed himself when he heard the police cars.

    Citizens arming themselves with weapons they have trained to carry and have permits for STOP violence and save lives.

    And Crazy people and criminals will always find a way to do harm, so at least we should have the ability to protect ourselves.

    Not so much banned but allow for conceal carry by trained personnel . Gun free should only apply to bad guy's
  • Angelatxpatriot 2012/12/19 13:38:05
    I don't know about "banned". If you have private property and choose to enforce a gun-free environment it's your business. I know, if I didn't own guns, I certainly wouldn't advertise it for all to know.
