    Taft, Califorina School Shooting.

    Just another day in good old America as we head off to school with our English books, gun/s and bullets.

      "That shooting prompted President Obama to promise new efforts to curb gun violence. "

      I'd like to see that happen. But if prohibition of drugs and alcohol has taught us anything, it is that banning something won't make the problem go away - it might make it even worse.

      Another NRA sales opportunity then! I hear it now, "If only that poor student had his own gun, then the other student would not have shot him."

    howtolearnmore,

    I appreciate you providing your insight regarding this issue. Your point about prohibition I find interesting.

    You are correct in that law enforcement encountered problems with banning drugs and alcohol. The interesting part of the situation is where as these drugs and alcohol were damaging people's internal organs basically people are slowly killing themselves they would prefer to shorten their lives rather than accept a ban which would most likely lengthen their lives.
