Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
First of all, this is for SINS:

New York has the toughest gun laws of any major city in the country and *lowest* per capita murder rate of any major city in the country...

As for the NRA's press conference today???

What would you expect out of them... Their idea is an expensive recipe for disaster... First, who are these people going to be??? Cop wantabees who would otherwise be driving around shopping centers in little SUVs with a decal that reads "Security"??? Uh huh, I see...
Second, di it ever occur to anyone that by putting a cop-wantabee in the school it is going to add an extra layers of jollies for the wackos to pull off the incident??? No, didn't think anyone thought of that...

As for the hand wringers who say, "Geeze, we can't possibly round up all the assault weapons or big clips, can we?"... Well, no... We can't... But we can round up or give private licenses out for 99% of them... Here's how... Everyone is given 6 months to bring their assault weapons or big clips in for a "buy back" or for spacial permits... After 6 months it's an automatic 5 years in prison for possession of them... It can't be done if we say "It can't be done" but it can be done if was say "We can do this"...
