Guns. And I'm using that example because well...you know, wacko has a gun, shoots innocent people. It's kinda the same story for each mass gun crime (wacko+gun=innocent people die). Giving more people access to guns, or teaching them that guns are cool as it seems like this "attraction" is trying to do, especially someone as young as 13, is never a good idea.What exactly would be controlled if you had things your way? Why are you using an elementary school massacre as a means to support the agenda?
Okay....So their should be no guns in our society? Including the government?Guns. And I'm using that example because well...you know, wacko has a gun, shoots innocent people.

Edit: And before you start with the "Oh well if one of the teachers had a gun, they would have shot him dead before he killed anyone!" or some other variant that includes another person having a gun and taking control of the situation, don't bother. That narrative doesn't work.
Explain to me what else a gun can do besides killing or seriously harming? I really want to know. Does it do tricks? Does it play music?Killing people is not the only thing that a gun can be used for, anyone who does not understand this should not be involved in this conversation. But really think about what the difference between this and paintball/laser tag. Here you use real guns, but in paintball/laser tag you are shooting at real people.
Murica, dude, Murica!yep, nothing wrong here. thank goodness for our precious right to bear arms.
The world I live in is a stange and dangerous place. I see dead people. I talk to very dangerous people in very dangerous places at 3am on an almost daily basis. I am a TV news photographer. I often get to the scene while the yard/porch/driveway is still decorated with bodies. I'm pretty numb to it all, but every once in a while the absolute senselessness of it all gets to me.Wow, seriously. When your faced with a robber that has an armed weapon, I'm sure you'll like to have a gun and know how to shoot it. I would like to know what "WORLD" you live in. This isn't a fairytale land or one that is all rainbows and flowers. People need to know how to defend themselves, with or without a gun. Just because I know how to shoot a gun doesn't make me a murderer or make me want to kill. I don't even like hunting. But there is nothing wrong with going to a gun range and shooting at targets. Grow up.

If someone wants to kill themselves, that's on them. Just because there are a bunch of suicides involving rope, that doesn't mean they should stop selling.
To me that says ALOT about the gun ranges in that area. If people are offing themselves at gun ranges, there is a few factors playing there. People in that area must have a high suicide rate to begin with, and the ranges themselves must not be doing something right (IE overlooking and keeping an eye on patrons). I mentioned it earlier, but where I live, I have NEVER heard of someone killing them selves in a gun range. We are literally the wild wild west, our laws are basically the best that coincide with the 2nd amendment. CCW is NOT required to conceal carry here. Gun ranges is where people go to shoot weapons they have never shot before and would like to, or to educate themselves on more weapons. They are not the problem. Saying someone who owns guns, wether high power or not and calling them the problem is flat stupid. I know enough people to form a small army in the state if they wanted too, they are that armed. All have wives and children. Strangley enough, they dont kill people. You CAN be a responsible gun owner and own 50 guns at the same time.The local gun ranges (Shoot Straight) that used to rent guns stopped renting guns after a spat of suicides committed with their rented guns in their controlled environment.
There is nothing to stop that from happening here. And being Fully Auto only ups the possible carnage.
