    USA shootings and gun laws

    Of course in an ideal world countermeasures like this wouldn't be necessary. I'm still yet to hear a realistic alternative suggestion though

    I did note proficiency as a condition Roxii How many of those 1.5% of gun deaths happened in schools? Just the two?

    The Politics Thread

    Dyson Haydon declines an invitation to go to a Liberal fundraiser - "Boooo!! Conflict of interest!!" The head of the biggest and most corrupt union in the country is the brother of Labor's shadow industrial relations minister - "Nothing to see here..."

    You appear to want to disagree, but are unable to formulate an argument

    No But feel free to pretend that gun owners have no idea how to use guns if you think it supports whatever point you're trying to make

    In other news, nine people are dead after a nutjob ran over them with a van in Toronto a coiole of days ago. Imagine my surprise that it wasn't as interesting as the waffle house despite more than twice as many people being killed Should we ban all vans or just automatic ones? Does the Canadian Automobile Association have blood on its hands?

    I don't think a teacher throwing a whiteboard eraser would stop a shooter as effectively as a teacher with a handgun parky. It would be marginally more effective than an unarmed teacher though, I'll give you that There have been several recent examples of citizens stopping shooters, but if you have evidence that these situations are 'furphies' I'd be curious to see it

    By the shooter's father not being criminally negligent, as I said

    As I said before, I am supportive of teachers being armed if they choose to be and are proficient That's because an armed teacher is far more likely to be able to stop a shooter than an unarmed teacher

    I would have thought that "how could three lives have been saved" would be a pretty good question...

    No it isn't You know as well as I do that the real reason you want a one-word answer is because one word answers are easier to misrepresent

    Could you clarify Parky, why you require a one word answer?

    Shooter shoots victim #1. Shooter is shot by our hero. End of story I think that scenario is a bit more likely than yours

    Indeed It's not hard to imagine at least two of the four victims being saved if he had also been armed

    So let me get this straight - nobody needs a gun because a guy somehow managed to take down a shooter without one But the reason teachers shouldn't be armed is because AR-15s are more powerful than handguns?
