Anyone noticed how many of those "overpaid" and "spoiled" "worthless" teachers died trying to protect the kids?
Like Vicky Soto hiding the kids in the closets and then staying outside the closet, telling the shooter kids are in the gym, and getting shot.
Like principal and psychologist who ran straight at the shooter to try to take him down and got killed.
And why did two men rushing a shooter who already fired several times died? Because shooter had an assault rifle.
I have nothing against people owning hunting rifles or hand guns for home defense. I own a gun myself. Taught my gf to shoot and got her one too.
But there is absolutely no reason for private citizens to be able to get their hands on military grade assault rifles. With no psychology check up, with nothing more then waiting for three days for it.
If he had a hunting rifle, or a hand gun, he would have been taken down when he stopped to reload. Assault rifle he had comes with 30+1 rounds. 28 dead.
Oh and you can legally buy it online. 950 bucks. Ships for free. No matter if you are a mental patient with homocidal tendencies. No one cares. It ships free.
So yeah, I don't want anyone to take guns away. But god damnit some CONTROL would be nice.

**** off handguns hold around 17 rds it only takes a second to reload if a shooter who has a 30rd mag or a drum did't just spray and pray and actually aimed or took time alot more people would have probley died. Also it was not an assault rifle you stupid **** an assault rifle has to have fully automatic capability. Also the "Assault rifle" was not used in the shooting it was in his trunk.

People who need to insult others during disagreements usually have a very low intelligence and bad upbringing. Its ok. We don't all have to be very capable people, but you don't really have to go showing to everyone how limited you are.
Weapons he used were Glock 32 with 13 rounds and SIG Sauer with 9 rounds.
He also carried a Bushmaster .233. In his car was another long rifle.
Check the facts before you go insulting people.

Forgot to add to that though that both those pistols can be equipped to have up to 30round mags in them and are semi - automatic. I do not know if he had such an equipment on them but if i remember correctly each mag hold 10+rounds as a default. Also if you own an assault rifle if must be semi automatic unless you get special licensing and go through a physiology check to make sure you can own a full automatic. So those pistols had the same potential as said assault rifle with getting special mags which are not hard to get at all.

Modifying a weapon takes quite a bit of know how, and if you do it wrong they tend to go bad on you. If you are lucky they stall, if you are unlucky they go boom.
All his weapons were brand new, out of the box.
I'm not saying a determined psychotic wouldn't be able to do it, but do we have to make it EASY for them?
Again, I am a big believer in 2nd amendment. I own a gun, and think anyone who loves their family should have one in the house.
BUT, I am also believer in gun control (not banning) I believe psychologist testing should be mandatory for anything but basic hunting rifle and small caliber hand guns.

2nd amendments mostly about militias, but go ahead and keep misusing it.
#314 to #313 - angelusprimus (09/22/2013) [-]
Yes it was. But militia was not same then as now.
Militia was a force of normal citizens, armed with their own weaponary in time of need.
Amendment was about right to be armed and defend yourself. It was direct response to British law that did not alow commoners to have personal weapons.

No, it actually referred to state militias. The way it's written implies nothing about citizens owning guns, just people in the militia. Thankfully the amendment has been interpreted to mean that anyone can own a gun, otherwise **** would be crazy in this country.

He didn't use the assault rifle it was in his car they found a glock and another pistol on him in the school. This is the last I checked CNN which was late last night.

He had sig sauer and a glock, and a bushmaster 223 assault rifle on him, and another assault rifle in the car.

"Armed with two semi-automatic pistols, Lanza rapidly sprayed bullets in hallways and classrooms. Twenty children, many of them kindergarteners, and six faculty members lost their lives. Lanza killed himself before police officers could reach him."
He had the bushmaster in the car he only wielded the pistols

From CBS news:
A law enforcement source told CBS News that Adam Lanza had three weapons with him during the attack: Two handguns (a Sig Sauer and a Glock), and a Bushmaster .223 assault rifle; spent shells were found in the school. Those three weapons were registered to his mother.

There was also a fourth weapon (a long gun) found in the car he drove to the school.
