Yesterday, after we knew the facts and the gun haters were in full dance mode, I ended up on the CBS news site. I read 3 or 4 of the articles, but the fascinating part was reading the comments. I have no illusion that CBS is anything but a liberal site. But the number of people commenting and calling for the total ban on guns and repealing the 2nd Amendment astounded me. That people are that willing to give away their freedom for what? A false sense of security? A wise old man once said that "those that would give up freedom for security deserve neither". (B. Franklin 17XX).
Another quote I like is "those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. And it seems to be true. We know the history of gun control in the 20th century, the millions killed by their own governments after gun control was enacted for "the public good". Do these people really trust the government that much? I don't. I don't believe that the government has my best interest in mind when that pass any law. The government has the governments best interest in mind.
If there is any good news at all, the principal and at least one teacher are heroes for trying to save lives. Teacher gives her life to save children. She got the kids into a closet or possibly a bathroom and when the murderer* came in she told him the kids were elsewhere, he then executed her. I read in one report that the Principal lunged at the murderer* to try and stop him.
There's a lot of other news and I'll just leave the links and you can read them at your leisure.

* I will never print the name of which ever scumbag happens to be in the news. I firmly believe that the press is giving these scumbags exactly what they want, publicity. They know the press will print or broadcast every aspect of their lives, giving them their 15 minutes.
