Hale already stated there would be starting tomorrow for Elementary. Shoulda been already. Didn't know there wasn't for them.

It may be that you are conservative and seeing that the Republicans aren't.
Well as Jon Stewart said Romney did carry Dixie

It's ok when it's a nuisance and makes things difficult.

That seems to be the word out on the street.

Bigger rumor is CT shooters dad and CO shooters dad both expected to testify to congress about lending scandal. - buy I'm not buying that one at a face value.

You had mentioned the need for more people to conceal carry, so I assumed you were talking about parents, teachers and/or staff carrying on campus, not uniformed security.

Forget Newtown, what happens at the Aurora theatre Dark Knight shooting if a couple of citizens return fire in a dark theatre as the cops show up? How do the police make a split second decision on who's who?

Anyone else on a school board? My email box and voicemail are overflowing with messages from parents wanting reassurances that our school board is doing all we can do to have safe schools

I doubt the innocent civilians will be aiming at the police and still shooting it out by the time they arrive.

I have been trying to find a way to deal with this all weekend and my emotions have gotten the best of me but something has to be done.

I don't know what it is and I don't think that taking guns or gun control is the solution but I am open to suggestions at this point, "even from some political parties that I cannot stand."

We could speak in hypotheticals all day but no one knows for sure.

I would hope through eyewitness accounts and if a cop tells a responsible gun owner to drop their weapon they will.

Plus the theater shooter was dressed in assault gear. Wouldn't be hard to pick him out compared to movie goers

Ive been elected three times and my teachers and parents love me bc the kids come first every time

Sorry you.judge based on what you think you know based off of a message board.

Also is this thread the appropriate place for insulting another poster?

How do police know who's who?

The guys that would have just killed the shooter and put away their guns would point to the dead guy with orange hair and no face as the bad guy.

And there are a dozen fewer funerals the next week in Aurora.

Any thread is an appropriate place to insult another poster

First is to let the emotions die down. Reasoning is made more difficult during emotional moments and leads to regretful decisions many times.

One thing that people have to accept, is that with freedoms, you will have abuses. Unfortunately, sometimes with grave consequences. Nobody who is sane wants to see anyone hurt especially children. It is hard to reconcile emotionally how an act like this can be perpetrated. There isn't an easy answer and won't be an easy one found in a situation like this. You never know what is going on in the mind of a person. Even those you know. I learned this a long time ago and am not surprised when things like this happen. It doesn't mean I don't feel for the victims and their families though. You have to live in a Utopia to be free from the evil that happens. And that will never happen. It doesn't mean that people shouldn't work towards it though.

The first step, is to having meaningful dialouge with one another, without it being hateful and disrespectful.

You don't come across as a rational thinker at times but you get a pass since it is a message board and I don't know you personally.

I insulted a screen name. No you. Don't take it so personally.

I think you and others just tend to think people who don't agree with you are not rational. I tend to do it some times also
