I have a perfect pocket pistol right in my nightstand drawer that has a code for it.

Not always a fair fight WV. Sometimes the good ole thunderfists are irrelevant.

Like when? The 30 or so times a year someone tries to storm into your home with a gun while youre there?
I'm sorry, WV ... Did you just infer that I'm a ***** because I've got guns?
It is taking shape right now after this horrible tragedy, let's ask the government to fix all of our problems for us, let's ask them to take all the responsibility upon themselves and legislate into law responsibility on an individual level, if you cannot see the fallacy in that philosophy than I cannot help you. Limitation doesn't fix the problem, education and moral values fix the problems, those are passed on be parenting and educational values.
I am a father and bona fide hard as nails tougher than rawhide guys guys, I own guns and ride **** that goes fast, I don't go to the hospital unless something falls off of me or is sticking out but you know what......I cried when I saw this news. I'm not assumed to admit either, it is sad and anyone with a goddamn heart should feel horrible for that community.
It is a tragedy of unimaginable intent but I wonder how many parents took the time after watching this horrible, twisted thing to sit down and talk with their kids about what issues they are having in their lives? Did they sit down and ask them how they felt about this and talk to them about what could have been taught to help solve this problem or did they just take up cause and start passing on the message that someone needs to fix it for us? The message that America seems to be lost in right now, the "someone will make it all better for us" message.
I talked to my son about guns, their intended use, how he felt about them, school violence, what to do if this happened at his school and why he should be aware of things in his surroundings. You will never know what is truly going on in a persons head and no amount of laws will fix that, no amount of council or study will ever truly give you 100% insight into some else and their conscious. The only thing I as a father can do is help my son make the right choices and support him when he falls, help him learn from his mistakes and make him understand that no matter what happens if you don't fix yourself, no one is going to do it for you.
This is the value that I pass on to my son, not the "let's sit back and wait for someone else to fix it for me" mentality that has gotten "us" as a society to this point.
