I can see the US making their schools similar to how UK schools are now after Dunblane. They all now bare a remarkable resemblance to Stalags !! ie: High security fencing all round security doors CCTV EVERYWHERE You can't play on the school fields like we used to be able to do. Everyone has to be "buzzed in" A sad indictment on todays society. Also... In the days when the 2nd amendment was drawn up Muskets were the dominent firearm. A musket probably takes a skilled militia about 30 seconds to reload Each round The second amendment needs ammending or at least enforcing.. ie: You only have the right to bare arms re: 2nd amendment If that firearm is a Musket !! Just as deadly, but to all intents and purposes..Single shot ! Can't see that happening mind but ...
