anyway back on topic why is this drill unthinkable but refusing to take steps to reduce the chance of the real deal going down really just a matter of protecting mah freedom?
I support many aspects if a logical gun control law:
Requiring mandatory background checks for ALL purchases.
Closing many of the loopholes...ie gunshow loophole
Requiring mandatory training on use and safety ...with required periodic re-training.
Requiring more extensive background checks and requirements for those who wish to purchase certain types of guns and anyone owning above a certain number if guns.
Requiring consistent laws and requirements across all states,
I have no desire to own an assault rifle, but I Di have concerns with our gov't going down the path of starting to outlaw certain types if guns. Thus us a very slippery slope and usually ends up in a place where most people never intended it to go.

you do at least acknowledge that it is perfectly constitutional to ban particular types of guns though, correct?
also none of those proposals could have acted as any sort of barrier to newtown et al. while i understand that he took the guns, i question the sanity of his mother who had legally purchased them. incentivizing safe storage of guns could help, as well as banning (gasp) particular types of guns and accessories
