Won't bother me. I lost all my guns in a boating accident a few years back. I can refer the authorities to the general area if they would care to check it out. I'd suggest waiting for summer. Lake Superior is a bit cool this time of year.

Has someone already proposed this? If not, keep your thoughts to yourself. We don't need to give gun grabbing tax and spend liberals any more bad ideas than those already bouncing around in their heads.

You can't have my gun, but you are welcome to as many of my bullets as it takes!

Maybe they should also call for the confiscation of bombs.

"Three package bombings at Austin homes are linked"

What is wrong with that?
They have a program in Colorado where teachers are certified to carry concealed guns in school. They receive specific training on handling both the guns and shooter situations. Those who carry are not made generally made known to the public. I assume certain other teachers are informed for obvious reasons.

What do you thing is an easier target, a gun free zone where the shooter knows he has 0 risk for x amount of time, or xxxxx amount of time if he is in Broward County, or a school where x number of teachers are armed and trained to react?

I'm saying that it's ironic that someone who is trained (he's a reserve officer with the police department) still makes the foolish mistake of discharging a weapon in a classroom while teaching "gun safety". I was not commenting on the issue of gun toting school officials.
