If he was an armed security guard, he should have been properly trained.

Yet the NRA and others want us to hand guns to people who have little or no training (such as provided in Utah's CCP classes) to guard our schools.

Can we imagine the headlines some day when an inadequately trained teacher who has had little nor actual experience handling a weapon has an "accidental discharge" in a classroom?

Once the bullet is flying, it's much too late to say, "Oooops!"

The NRA said "the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

So NRA, answer this for me: How do we stop a stupid guy with a gun?

The NRA said "the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

But when Gerald Loughner killed 8 and wounded many others (including Gabby Giffords), it was two UNarmed people who stopped him.
They jumped on him as he attempted to put another clip in his gun ... but they were almost shot by an armed "hero" running out of Walgreens, who thought they were the attackers.

Arizona has the most lax gun laws in the country, yet none of the armed people in that audience was a "good guy with a gun".
None of them.

Is this one of those so-called "experts" the extreme left keeps telling us about?
