@Sum - -"You're right, he did not. His gun lovin mom did. -- What is wrong with enjoying firearms ? Is that supposed to mean something? It was her guns he used to kill her and slaughter those children and faculty. - -'
YES, IT IS SUPPOSED TO MEAN SOMETHING. HIS MOTHER KNEW HE WAS SICK YET SHE KEPT HER FIREARMS IN OBVIOUS REACH OF HIM. IF SHE HAD PROPERLY STORED HER WEAPONS FROM HER MENTALLY ILL CHILD THEN HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO OBTAIN THEM AND USE THEM TO SLAUGHTER HER AND THOSE BABIES.
Why wasn't there a cop at the school?
SMALL TOWN SCHOOLS DON'T GENERALLY HAVE COPS ON DUTY. USUALLY THEY AREN'T NEEDED. WE HAVE SECURITY DOORS.
Perhaps some better education on how to store weapons would have been beneficial. Or perhaps if his mother wasn't allowed to posses such a high powered assault weapon with high capacity magazines, he would not have been able to cause such devastation."
Well first off his mom was a legal gun owner ? Second I don't know how the guns were stored do you if you do share.
IF SHE PROPERLY STORED HER GUNS THEN HER SON WHO WAS KNOWN TO BE MENTALLY ILL AND DEPRESSED WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCESS THEM. YES, SHE WAS A LEGAL GUN OWNER. I SAW THAT PLASTERED ALL OVER THE NEWS WHEN THEY SPOKE OF HIM USING HIS MOTHERS BUSHWACKER AND GLOCKS.
As far as high powerd-it is a 223 really used for varmint hunting in the hunting realm and not even suitable for deer hunting because it would be under powered.
BUT NOT SO UNDER POWERED THAT IT COULDN'T KILL AN ENTIRE CLASSROOM FULL OF 6 AND 7 YEAR OLDS.
As for mag capacity a new mag can be dropped and withing a fraction of a second a fresh one popped into place . So ten rounds can be loaded that quickly.
PERHAPS THAT IS HOW HE WAS ABLE TO SLAUGHTER SO MANY SO QUICKLY THEN, HUH?

My point was that Constitutional rights and GOD given rights are not the same thing. There is no such thing as a Constitutional God given right. just sayin... that's all.

You said Constitutional GOD given rights. God did not give us the constitution. And yes, technology has changed. Transportation has changed and with those changes came different laws to protect people against themselves and each other..Weapons have changed and with those changes should come different laws to protect people from themselves and each other.

"Constitutional GOD given rights." ~Bigben
GOD did not write the Constitution. It was written by men a few centuries ago. Back then we had muzzle loaders not bushwhackers.

You're right, he did not. His gun lovin mom did. It was her guns he used to kill her and slaughter those children and faculty.

ooh... ooh... ooh... hey, hey.. listen! I need my high powered military assault rifles and high capacity magazines because I have a little phallus and having a big gun makes me feel better about it. So what if a few kids are slaughtered every month? Who cares if a couple of psychopaths go on a rampage now and then and mutilate groups of people in theaters, churches, parks, grocery stores.. etc... I need my gun so I can feel like a BIGGER man.Hunting rifles and hand pistols aren't enough for me, no sirree, Bob! I need a big gun intended for mutilation in mass quantities.
For all you backwoods hicks, THAT WAS SARCASM... idiots!

People seem to forget that he had no motive for killing. His victim didn't hurt him, didn't offend him, didn't molest or beat him. She didn't even look at him crosseyed. He killed her because he wanted to.
Most people kill for a reason. This guy had NO REASON. You cannot say to yourself that you will just be real nice to him. He doesn't care about that. He kills just because. No reason. He will kill you because he wants to not because you did anything to him. People don't find that unsettling? He murdered his neighbor lady for no reason. And now he lives in YOUR neighborhood!! That wouldn't bother you, eh?

What? I don't get it. The boy did as he was taught to do. It is ok to kill people who are a threat to you. SO the boy did as his daddy taught him. His dad was a threat. So he took him out. White Supremacy. A bunch of back woods hicks teaching their young to be back woods hicks. Sometimes it back fires, boys. Hope the little guy gets some help.

whitesabbath, you're a friggen genius! Because speeding is so comparable to murder! When I speed, I get a ticket and have to pay a fine. For every action there is a reaction. the reaction to speeding is a fine. The reaction to murder should be 20 years and out to do it again??? Holy cow!! You are the reason they call us bleeding heart liberals! He cold blooded murdered her and didn't know why. He even said he didn't know why he did it. He just felt like it. Maybe he can figure out where you live and cold blood murder your love without any reason at all other than he felt like it and in 20 years get out again. You make absolutely no sense. Unbelievable!

I don't believe murderers should ever be paroled or serve a sentence less than life. If you take away someones life, then yours should be taken away as well. Mrs Sposito's family will never have her back like Jarretts family has him back. He should have rotted within those cell walls.
