I believe the guns are banned to sell in NYS, but they're legal to own if you already have them and they're registered.

Yes, the flu is a rather generic term for a virus that changes each year. Chances are, you wouldn't get the flu again that season, but this is why they say to get shots every year, because the shots change from year to year to best fight that year's strain.

Whatever you think about it, you have to question the wisdom of this children's-size shirt being sold at a gun show yesterday in Reading, PA - http://i.imgur.com/QNRXO.jpg

It's my understanding that a lot of these areas weren't in flood zones (places known for flooding), that this was a freak storm because of climate change and such. When all is said and done, the flood zone maps may have to be changed. Can anyone verify that?

It's probably worth noting that Columbine did have an armed guard. If it didn't work there, it doesn't really seem worth spending $1 billion/year on armed guards when the idea has been already proven not to stop or prevent school shootings. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/12/17...

What do you mean there are no shootings in private schools? Just this year, 7 were killed at a private Christian university. http://news.yahoo.com/cops-7-dead-3-hurt... Or what about that Amish school shooting a few years ago? If you want to restrict the scope to regular K-12 schools, there are three times more public schools than private schools, any public space is equally attackable... whether it be a school (public or private), a mall, or a movie theater. And yes, if the principal had run down the hall, the outcome would have been different- the killer would have had been able to take her gun after killing her.

Keep in mind, no one is saying we should outlaw guns. And as far as "protecting the people from the government". The government has nuclear bombs. Guns won't help if the government decides to turn on the people. A well-armed militia is still no match for the US Armed Forces.
