i would trade any of the republcan douche bags like mitt romney for the late president abraham lincoln any day. i have a solution for stopping gun massacres in theaters: metal detectors.to the person from sharpsburg what if some people decided that you shouldn't be allowed to marry the person that you love? so why don't you drop your selfish attitude about marriage which most straight people like you take for granted and learn to share.corey donaldson

Corey, unfortunately metal detectors just make a beeping sound when they detect something contraband. They don't magically put up a force field to stop any gun or gunfire. The best they can do is alert someone to the presence of a gun and then it might still be too late. If these crazies really want to get a gun somewhere, they will, metal detector or not. They might deter sane, reasonable people, but not insane ones. All it would do is cause the person manning the detector to get shot first. Plus, there are ways now to 3D print the complete components for a gun out of nonmetallic polymers, making metal detectors useless against those types of weapons.

Besides, there are numerous entrances and exits to these public places. It is not feasible or realistic to put up metal detectors and armed personnel at every doorway 24/7. And the crazies would just find another way in if the front door was guarded. Remember the NRA's answer to school shootings...put MORE guns into schools.

Nice thought though, but its along the lines of when politicians tried banning TOY guns to stop gun violence instead of, I don't know...REAL ones??

take care
