Is the NRA proposal logic and rational?
The left will scream and shout NO. But wait a second. There are over 200,000,000 guns in private ownership in the United states. The right to keep those guns has been litigated many times. The only way guns could ever be "removed" from private ownership is by a constitutional amendment. There does not exist in this country currently anywhere near the votes to accomplish such a task. If the left were to try, the process would literally take decades and would most likely be unsuccessful. Thus if we want to look at the political reality and quit with the posturing and wild ideas--the political reality is that we will have private ownership of guns in america for the forseable future. This being a given, guns will therefore be available through one means or the other, to the crazies and the criminals. Shooters like these wack jobs recently are so focused they'll buy, steal, or build their own weapons. Yes we can make it harder, and yes we should support tightening the gun laws. But given a situtation where you can have crazies and criminals that will be armed the only logical and ratinal solution is--make sure there is a good guy with a gun where there is a bad guy with a gun. It's not perfect, it's not what anyone would particurly want--but ask yourself--if an armed gaurd engaged the shooter at Newtown and kept him pinned for just a few minutes before help could have arrived--how many funerals would we be having this week? typical liberal responses so far--no one is forcing you to carry a gun--the NRA is simply saying--you can't get rid of guns without an amendment to the constituion--that wouldtake decades--in the meantime--clearly--you will have crazoids like this that will try it again. You can do as much damage with guns that are street legal as you can with the so called assault weapons

The problem is who is "good/mentally capable" to own a gun(s)? We dont have a test that reflects that clearly. It's extremely disputable. Plus, why should we live in fear with our own guns when we don't need to worry with guns gone?

When you want to arm all the teachers, and who knows what else, that is complete insanity.
