    After just returning from my daughters nativity play, there are no words to describe what happened in America. I know for sure I'd never get over it.

    As Jeff said, I have no idea what the answer is. The arguments for and against are all very sound. It is however, nice to see such sensible and civilised discussion taking place on here, respect to all those involved.

    Cherish every moment with your kids. They only grow up once and if you lose them it's devastating. I took mine for granted but not anymore

    JDP, to be a police marksman you dad was one of the elite few, not just a good shot but a very relaxed and methodical person with a strong sense of character. My guessing is that he was also softly spoken, never yet met a good shot who isn't.
    Very few people possess these qualities. Be proud of him.

    Trust me; I am. He had all of the qualities you've just listed, in spades.

    Personally, I prefer to see the Americans killing Americans.

    I'm fed up of seeing Americans killing others around the world - with their God on their side, of course.

    So keep it in the US of A, I say.

    These are the guys making the guns, bullets and bombs after all; the American economy is based on arms manufacture, and using them -wherever- keeps their factories churning out more... and they just will not listen - the 2nd Amendment and all that sh$t.

    No one is safe when you've an American close by with a gun on his or her side.

    So go guys, let it all out and stop asking/expecting sympathy for self inflicted happenings in the good old US of A.

    The choice really IS yours!

    Bluejay,
    There are very few guns actually made in the USA, with the exception of Smith & Wesson the majority are Austrian, German or Japanese. The American economy is based on Finance, manufacturing, farming and minerals.

    Unless you have lived or spent a considerable amount of time in the USA you will not fully understand the 2nd Amendment or firearms. So any feelings you have on the subject are based on emotion and not facts. This is what the gun control lobby and Piers moron are basing their ideas on. Here is an idea, ask the people who are on the front line, ask the parents and ask the teachers.

    And what do the teachers feel about it?

    And don't forget, Utah is a big Mormon state, Mormons are god fearing peace loving people who are not too big on violence.
