  2. If this kid had had a gun and could have defended himself, it never would have happened.

    Absent some real threat, I think toting around a gun for protection or to settle a beef is cowardly.

    Guns were just as easy to get in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. In fact, they were even easier to get than now.

    Why wasn't this happening back then?

    "And the National Rifle Association says that guns don't kill people, people do, but I think the gun helps, you know? I think it helps. I just think just standing there going, 'Bang!' ... that's not going to kill too many people, is it?"

I just think just standing there going, 'Bang!' and pressing some bullets hard against someone, hoping to penetrate the epidermis ... that's not going to kill too many people, is it?"

    I didn't think I needed the sarcasm font but apparently I did.
