    Back in the 50's, it was hard to find a pickup in the school parking lot that didn't have a rifle or shotgun in the rear window
    and most weren't locked.

    They also have a totally different society then we do, education, health care social services on and on.
    They are surrounded by many Nations and it's not unusual to find many Swiss speak 2-3-4 different languages.

    Which has nothing to do with anything. They are armed, and responsible. Their neighbors outlaw guns, but have more crime. Swiss tend to avoid war, while surrounding nations tend to be overrun. Hitler knew better than to start a ground war in the Swiss Alps...

    Well I remember the kids in HS and myself and I'm glad we weren't allowed to bring guns to school.
    I doubt they could have lasted very long against Hitlers forces if they had to. They don't keep up that kind of military might.

    I think most people are not thinking on how to avoid killings. The best deterrent to crime is to have a fair & speedy trial as the constitution specifies then have fair & speedy punishment. In this case of the Florida shooting the killer should face a firing squad with the parents of the slain children drawing for positions on the firing squad. Of course the bleeding hearts would call this cruel & unusual punishment. Another strong deterrent would be to return to public hangings. The media should broadcast these events so any mass killer want to be's could see what they had to look forward to. Does anybody on this board doubt this would curtail killings?

    The left would spend more time defending the killers than they would spend defending the children.
    Suddenly the families wouldn't matter any more.
    And hang the SOB's within a month of their criminal act.

    Kasich is a POS that stands for nothing. He knows that he is just playing politics, but some people will rally behind the a-hole if they are as stupid as he is.

    I couldn’t agree more. These killers see the 24/7 attention the last guy got I believe it helps inspire them.
    Also these well intentioned protests by the kids serve as motivation for a loser looking to control because Cruz is getting it.

    All the usual gun grabbing tactics accomplish are a jump in AR-15 sales and motivating the next mass murderer. It won’t happen.

    I agree. These killers should never get their face shown on TV. And after initially identified publically, their name should also stop being used.
    What I'd really like to see is the police giving me 10 minutes alone with the shooter, then a fresh mug shot of his becomes the only photo used of him from that point forward.
