If the Kent State students had been armed in 1970, the Ohio National Guard would have killed them all.

They were protesting for peace; they didn't want to have to carry guns, kill people, or fear for their lives--and four of them were killed for it.

Peace is not derived from armament. Deterrents are an inherently short-sighted solution: they only pause an enemy who has already decided to attack you until they acquire equal or better weapons. Best case scenario, the peace of the gun lasts only as long as no one gets angry enough or crazy enough to risk mutual annihilation--someone like that will always be around.

School shootings occur at schools whether or not people at the school are armed.

School shootings are about making others feel as bad as the shooter feels about themselves by the act of killing other people's children. The objective isn't for the shooter to live, its to cause others pain.

Two things will happen if schools become heavily armed compounds, where every preschooler to graduate student is armed:
1) More guns will be sold
2) More gun accidents will happen

That's it. School shootings will still occur.

Buying more guns won't solve anything. If buying more guns was going to solve anything it would have happened by now.

Actually yeah, it is pretty sexy.
I'd love to see her tits bounce while she fires it.

I wouldn't want to see her laying in a pool of her own blood with it still strapped to her moments after she thought it would save her life.

More of a hands tied behind her back lying in a pool of her own blood type of guy, huh?

I get it.

The fun part about openly carrying a gun strapped to your back is you've turned yourself into an easy target. All they have to do is sneak up behind you and immobilize or take your gun. There's legions of special forces and ex-special forces trained to do just that. Some of them work for police forces.

Her little pew-pew stick isn't the magic she thinks it is.

Yes.

This >>769; she's no action hero. I don't think it would take special forces; anyone with decent aim could take her out long before she managed to get that thing into her hands; and then they'd have her gun to kill people with too.

Yes, ex special forces working for the police is everybody's top concern.

As long as they can adapt to the terms of being a police officer--that they are meant to protect people, even suspects, so that justice may be served, as opposed to just filling the darkies "bad guys" with lead--I think it's fine if soldiers "retire" into law enforcement. I'm sure there are many soldiers whose contributions would be of great benefit--proper weapons training, reduced flight response, tactical awareness, etc. Given the numerous conflicts we've been involved in the last two decades, I imagine the number of returning vets looking for a job to put their skills to use is rather high.

It only becomes a problem if they lose sight of the purpose of law enforcement: upholding society, protecting people's lives, allowing justice to be served. Deadly force should be a last-ditch option for law enforcement officers, but too often it has been their crutch. This isn't so much a problem with soldiers joining the police, as it is with the tendancy of the police force to become militarized. Regardless of their backround really, all police officers should face rigorous and regular psychological testing and there should be oversight committees preventing police chiefs from buying military gear they don't need. We trust these people with upholding our society, we ought to be sure they are sane enough to do so and reasonably equipped for their job.

If the time comes that we need firing teams and tanks to put down a riot or whatever, that's why we have a National Guard.

Everyone's top concern are the nuts hoarding guns and using their arsenals to commit mass murder.
