Hey, NRA, tell us again about if we only had 377 good guys with guns...

we could have stopped the EXECUTION OF 19 CHILDREN AND TWO TEACHERS in less that 1.5 hours.

I'm waiting, for the 377th good guy with a gun.

Nobody stepping up, Bueller, Bueller?

The FUCKING MYTH OF A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN HAS TO STOP, NOW!

If 377 police can't stop a guy with an AR-15, the problem isn't that we need more police. Initech Jul 2022 #6

I was talking about the NRA's rhetoric about "good guys with guns" bullshit.

I await your apology.

... who do nothing while people are being slaughtered are most emphatically not "good guys."

It is not that 377 couldn't do it. It was a complete failure to manage the situation as has been well documented.

Which would inevitably result in more casualties.

My point is that we need less guns in society, not more. Adding more guns to a gun problem only makes things worse.
