Just had to disengage from a conversation where the video games were the culprit. Also mentioned was “there were more guns accessible 40 years ago and none of these shootings!” Had to stop and think about just when 40 years ago was, it was the 1980s, not the 1960s I keep expecting it to be.
Surely only a good hunter with an AK-47 can stop a bad hunter with an AK-47
Usually it’s the other way round.
The good guy shoots the gun out of the bad guy’s hand, I saw it in a movie
It’s also a document about how aristocracy relate to monarchy more comparable to the Golden Bull than the American constitution. It’s really 19th century patriotic invention that has made it into a founding document of democracy much like 20th century invention has made the American constitution a bulwark against the right not to be shot at school.
By which I mean it doesn’t matter whether people follow those documents or not, they’re all just excuses to do what they want.
This is true for pretty much all of Europe. Hunting is for aristocrats and wealthy people who can afford the expensive equipment and certifications as well as having the free time to spend hunting at odd hours. Hunters are usually considered stewards of the land so they have to spend a certain amount of time outside checking their assigned region for damage caused by wild animals and for diseased animals as well as building blinds, generally keeping up the hunting infrastructure and participating in the traditions.
Yet every other civilized nation managed to solve this problem of banning weapons of war that you seem to feel is unsolvable.
Armed teachers and staff do not work and most school districts and teachers are rightfully uninterested in these useless “school marshall” programs
In 2019, New Mexico State University public health professor Jagdish Khubchandani and James Price at the University of Toledo took a look at school security practices and their effectiveness. They found no evidence that more armed teachers reduced gun violence in schools.
“Armed school personnel would have needed to be in the exact same spot in the school as the shooter to significantly reduce this level of trauma,” the researchers wrote. “Ten seconds is too fast to stop a school shooter with a semiautomatic firearm when the armed school guard is in another place in the school.”
The hypocrisy makes my blood boil
“In the wake of this devastating crime, we must redouble our efforts to ensure that our schools provide a safe and secure environment for the children of Texas,” Abbott wrote.
If teachers wanted to be cops, they’d be cops. 2-3x the pay for half the work and a lot more (unearned) respect from society.
And cops get all their supplies paid for.
TO THE EDITOR:
Perhaps now is the time for all patriotic Americans who own assault rifles to donate them to Ukrainian soldiers.

Not a great start there, buddy.
After that I’m impressed you managed to type clearly as you were gunwanking really, really hard and that’s just gross.
So you would be up for closing this loophole? That’s good to know!! Let’s get on that right away! Erroneously or not, it is known as the gunshow loophole and it certainly exists. It should not.
That’s about the only part of your statement that makes a credible point. The Second Amendment is not about hunting, it’s about the necessity of well drilled and trained citizen militias (militias being collective units made up of individuals) sanctioned by the state to aid in its own defense. People who claim that the Second Amendment is about being able to keep arms for hunting or household self defense or collecting purposes are full of BS.
Well, that solves the problem without any need for further action or follow-up. No ex-convict or mentally ill person or domestic abuser/stalker would ever lie about their status on a government form.
There is a prohibition on the ATF from using digital, national level gun sales data. Thus enabling a very lucrative and nigh impossible to stop illegal gun market.
Background checks are state based only and worth jack shit ultimately.
You don’t mind senator Thune called them sporting rifles used to shoot animals, but you do mind people pointing out that’s nonsense, huh?
