Kucinich Seeks To Ban Hand Guns In America!
I've held guns, loaded or not, but due to being a city boy, I've never discharged one.
IMHO as a non-gunner, and pro-gunner, if EVERY student went packing a piece that day,
NONE of this would have happened.

Just my $0.02

Kucinich Seeks To Ban Hand Guns In America!
I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for saying this, but I think America could do without handguns. People should be allowed to have their rifles and other types of guns, but handguns are too easy to hide and walk around with, and most all gangfights/murders involve handguns.

I suppose prohibition never works, but we should make it easier for people to have rifles and harder for people to have handguns. To be honest the only reason I think people should have guns are for protection in their homes/from the government and hunting. Everyone says if people at VT had guns then it wouldn't of been as bad, but there should be something better to protect yourself with in public than a handgun. Imagine if 10 or so people all pulled out handguns when the first shots rang out. It would soon be chaos as return fire is mistaken for hostile fire.

Don't have an answer for what besides guns could be used. Maybe tasers, but those could be abused and they are dangerous/sadistic. Still I don't think everyone having a gun is a realistic answer to this problem.
The belief in 'coincidence' is the prevalent superstition of the Age of Science.

Well Mike Rivero recently stated on his show that baseball bats are responsible for more deaths in America than guns, so do you think they should outlaw them or baseball? I don't have the statistics to back that up but I believe Mike Rivero, maybe someone could look it up & pull out the numbers if they think it's wrong. The 2nd amendment speaks for itself imo.

Fair enough, I see your point; but hand guns didn't really exist when the 2nd amendment was written so it's hard to apply it to today's situation.
