I'll say it for them. No.

And fark these parents for trying to make a buck off of this tragedy instead of just being incredibly thankful that THEIR CHILD IS STILL ALIVE. Yes, their little girl will need counseling, and will be at risk of PTSD. But even if they can't afford it (this is a reasonably well off community) I would be shocked if mental health care services were not being offered to these kids.

Many of these kids will be messed up for life. Not as a direct result of the shooting, but as a result of the years of "Are you OK? Really, are you OK? Let's talk about it." mental health care services that will be shoved in their faces, recurring media coverage of "The Sandy Hook Kids: X Years Later", etc. The kids won't get over it because Munchausen-by-proxy parents, money-grubbing lawyers, meddlesome "community leaders" and attention-whoring reporters won't let them forget. Unfortunately, it will become an identity for many of them, a crutch as to why they can't or won't do anything with their lives. I'm picturing year after year of the gymnasium scene after the plane collision in Breaking Bad.

If parents want their kids to get over it, the best thing to do would probably be to get the hell out of town and start over somewhere else.

Silly Jesus: Abox: Silly Jesus: I hope he wins. It was absolutely preventable.

My uncle was in high school in the 50's. He tells a story of walking to school one day after hunting early in the morning. He put his rifle in his locker and went to class (this was normal in those days). At about lunchtime, out the classroom window, he and a bunch of guys in class noticed a huge buck grazing in the outfield of the baseball field. He and some guys ran and got their guns and as they made it to the field they heard a shot. It was the assistant principle. He had beaten them there and got the prize.

How do you think that this weirdo would have fared going into that school and trying to shoot up the place?


Well.

Really? Several unarmed teachers confronted him and were slaughtered. You don't think that the principle with a rifle would have fared better than the unarmed teacher?


Not with the guns in their lockers, no.

My guess is the lawyer approached a number of parents and finally found one that fell for his bullshiat.

Close2TheEdge: Giltric: Close2TheEdge: Yet another wonderful side benefit that the NRA's hair-brained scheme would create.

There are already k-12 school districts with their own police departments. Having armed guards in schools is not a new idea. Detroit, Baltimore and Philly have had them for decades. There might even be some sort of correlation with high crime areas or places where blah people live....Now I understand that white people would rather have a high property value than protect their own children....cops in schools would make their lily white neighborhoods no different from those on the other side of the tracks....and noone in their right mind wants that.....right?

Except that the NRA wants to do this without police. Instead, you will have an army of George Zimmerman's guarding schools from...something. More police means raising taxes and we suburban white folks don't want that either.

Personally, I think the whole idea of armed guards in schools is moronic, but I'll take that over arming teachers and principals.


They NRA doesn't give a rats ass about getting armed guards into schools. Nor do they think that movies or video games are to blame. The ONLY reason they brought all that crap up was to get everyone to focus on the NRA's stupid ideas and stop talking about the one thing the NRA actually cares about, the prospect of an Assault Weapons Ban. And it worked, because guess what we aren't talking about much anymore?

Think about it for a second... Armed guards in every school would barely have any impact on the NRA's biggest contributors. They would make maybe one or two million dollars more per year in revenue, but that would be it. An Assault Weapons Ban on the other hand would do them a HUGE amount of harm, costing 10's of millions in revenue every year. So which do you think the NRA really cares about?

That being said... What is your proposal that is better if armed guards are moronic and arming teachers and other staff who volunteer is an even worse idea?

Please put your idea in terms of its impact on the actual Sandy Hook situation... So your idea has to be MORE effective than a trained and armed guard or than 3 or 4 staff members who were armed and who went through a few days of training every summer, would likely have been in that situation.

Dear Next Crazy Guy,

Please stay away from our schools and malls. Please find a law office, or even better yet, a legal convention.

So, in effect, the parents are suing themselves, their community, even the other parents who lost children in the massacre.... Brilliant.

cerejaninja: "Foreseeable harm"? Seriously? They should have known that an armed lunatic was going to come in that day and prepared accordingly, is that what is being suggested? Oh boy.


If they had safety drills to deal with armed intruders, then they certainly "foresaw' it happening. The question is whether their preparations were reasonable. Probably nothing short of "maximum security armed camp" would be acceptable for the douchebag parents (the lawyer is doing his/her job; the parents are douchebags).

Why do we continue to not put some law into place that holds the people doing this shiat responsible when they lose? I'm pretty sure other countries have laws in place for the "I'm going to sue because I want a lot of money for no real reason" lawsuits.. Like sending them to jail if found guilty of making up bullshiat for a easy payday.

You have to allege that the harm was foreseeable, to establish that there was a duty to prevent it.

Or you could, you know, not file stupid lawsuits.
