"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

All police officers are good all the time.

Definitely bad to have children involved with violence or guns. Unfortunately, the vocal pro-gun people like this guy often sound a lot like children, talking about "good guys" and "bad guys." Pretend gunslingers want to make believe so bad that things are that simple. People like George Zimmerman — definitely the good guys, right? Not at all trigger-happy, with questionable motivations, judgment, etc. Give 'em more guns!

I remember the music video that inspired me to go on my first classroom shooting spree: It was Mr. Mister's "Take These Broken Wings."

I'm surprised the NRA didn't demand an armed Republican in every school.

"If they take away our guns, we'll end up in a tyrannical dictatorship" - people that want to see armed guards everywhere they go

Federal registry of owners of dangerous property? Well-intentioned pave stone on an inevitable path to tyranny.

Federal registry of people possibly suffering some spectrum of disorder from imprecisely-defined mental or genetic problems? LIBERTY-AFFIRMING SOLUTION!

Dammit Humphrey, that's going to be stuck in my head all damn day.

Japanese robots. But that's always my solution to every problem.

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." Strange move for LaPierre to advocate for someone to stop him.

Mental health, apathy about war and violence waged in other countries should at least be another component to this dialogue. Our country provides most of the guns in the world market. In 2011 the US sold 66.3 billion dollars worth of arms on the global market. 66.3 billion of the 85.3 billion sold all together globally (just to clarify, that means we sold over 3/4 of the arms world-wide). Gun regulation and gun de-regulation are not the only issues at hand. Yes, a good guy with a gun has a better chance of defending against a bad guy with a gun than another good guy without a gun. Its time to delve into this issue further. The discussions over the second amendment should not be washed away but other discussions are in order. Prevention is key and its much more than the debate on gun regulation/de-regulation that seems to flood my news streams.
