Shooting at Lone Star College in Texas.

Early reports are three wounded, and the shooting occurred in the library and cafeteria.

Getting rid of guns altogether and never letting a single person ever hold one ever again sounds more and more like a wonderful idea to me with each passing day. Idealistic, I know, but still...

I think the shadowy government agency responsible for all these 'shootings' is over doing it

Sure, but I've always viewed a constitution as a living, breathing document rather than something that's set in stone.

There are 27 amendments to the U.S. constitution which means that changes are, theoretically, possible.

And hey, the right to bear arms is an amendment, so it was not part of the original constitution.

What would you even call it if you made changes to your constitution? I can't even wrap my head around the idea

David Mamet: Gun Laws and the Fools of Chelm - Newsweek and The Daily Beast

Say what you like about Mamet...but at least he's provocative.

Eh, I don't even think you can call him provocative. I mean opening with a Karl Marx reference is predictable these days, it's the status quo.

The government, for example, has determined that black people (somehow) have fewer abilities than white people, and, so, must be given certain preferences.
Um...no?

And yeah, this communism babble left me rolling my eyes as well.

I just have a few questions for all the people who keep insisting we need to put armed guards in schools: How are we going to pay for them? Obvious answer would be through taxes, but whose? And would that mean we'd have to cut something else to fund this?

And does this mean we'll need to add wings to the schools where all the guards' weapons will be stored (and hopefully locked up tight)? And what happens if a kid stumbles upon or breaks into that area of the school sometime?

I have a very strong feeling that everyone who advocates for armed guards/teachers wandering around schools has not really thought this idea through.

Amendments are possible in theory, but our dumbass congress can't even pass a fucking budget.
