    It's unlawful for lawful CCW holders to protect and defend themselves in schools and other gun free zones too.We wouldn't want them to survive a mass shooting or save the life's of other innocents now would we?;)

    If the above were to be actually relevent then the preponderance of workplace incidents wouldnt be in gov jobs where employees have the most protections.....they would be in the private sector

    You can't possibly justify killing someone simply to prevent them from murdering dozens of innocent bystanders?! You heartless bastard!

    It's funny that he's saying more government intervention is needed. The overwhelming majority of "workplace violence" mass shootings that I can think of have been committed by government employees. From Virginia Beach, to the Navy Yard, to the Post Office shootings...where we get the phrase "going postal" from. Even San Bernardino and Fort Hood (labeled as workplace violence instead of terrorism by the Obama administration) were committed by government employees. I honestly can't think of a single "workplace violence" mass shooting that has occurred that wasn't committed by a government employee.

    If the kids want to defend themselves against an active shooter,
    let them use their own guns.

    And if anyone remembers all of the "yout arrested after busting a cap on rival at school"
    stories in the New York Daily News during the 70's,
    they'll realize that sentiment used to be more plausible than
    Archie Bunker's solution for skyjackings.

    ETA: Note well - they were not front-page stories.
    Another day; another scholar caught packing a roscoe
    (before or after using it).
    Students packing in city schools
    ranked right up there with "water is wet".

    I wasn't necessarily advocating that we as private citizens become armed super heroes, more poking "fun" at the fact that most of the shootings where one of us thwarted the ne'er do well, and that most of the settings were not gun free zones.

    No sweat, didn't think you were going hyper like that.

    One aspect of "let the kids use their own guns"
    is to highlight that the 2nd amendment is not fundamentally
    an entitlement program for people (adults) to get a free ride
    on armed residents' deterrent.

    Another aspect is to underscore how
    the higher the legal costs of self-defense,
    the lesser the incentive for gun owners to
    step up and defend strangers.

    I checked me. According to that website I have 8 kids and am Native American. I understand the Native American thing. I check the Native American box constantly since Lizzie Warren appeared the scene. I certainly have more Native American in me than she does.

    My wife is wondering who I had the other 5 kids with. I’d like to know also.

    It did have my net worth and properties correct though.

    But, my wife doesn’t exist, apparently. She’s a ghost wife. She’s managed to stay under the radar.
