  •  Escalation only calls for escalation (6+ / 0-)

    Since the shooting, the only conservative suggestions we get involve ONE thing: escalation (more guns, bigger guns).

    Let's say we go down that road. What do you think the next crazy will do, if not plan for more and bigger guns, and factor in the presence of armed guards? Where do you think this will lead, if not to new OK Corrals??

    Escalation calls only for escalation! Escalation is the remedy of dangerous people.

    •  that is absolutely correct and anyone (2+ / 0-)

      with a brain can see this. That is the question to ask - does the nation really want to have everyone armed.

      •  Proliferation brings nothing but trouble (1+ / 0-)

        To me, it's the same thing: absolutely NOTHING good comes out of the proliferation of anything: cars, cellphones, smartphones, internet, etc. All you get from proliferation is TROUBLE.

        Guns? Might as well hand a stick of dynamite to everyone! What do you expect will happen, if not complete mayhem?

        Ask anyone who escalated a war of words with a neighbor in various ways if it improved the situation... One has to be able to DEFUSE bad situations, and in our case, to defuse means gun control of some kind. Heck, one has to register his car, why not his guns?

    •  NRA Escalation was done before. An example here. (1+ / 0-)

      We've been here before though it  was in  a different county.

      The NRA advocacy of police in schools is just a start. How about at County Board meetings. How about at churches. There is no limit.

      The NRA advocacy is the introduction of martial law throughout the USA. And checkpoints will not be far behind. And checking your papers on the street pseudo randomly will not be far behind.

      We've been here before though it  was in  a different county. It was in the beginnings of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

      Following this path is not patriotic, is not freedom, and is very dangerous. Ask the millions slaughtered in the name of homeland security by those who claimed power in the name of protecting the country.

      It is not too late but it is 11:58 PM before the day in which it is too late.
