        Anti-gun groups and even some of the nation's leaders are starting to call for more gun restrictions following the school shooting in Connecticut last Friday.

       Some are proposing a ban of all assault rifles, like the one the shooter used in Sandy Hook Elementary.

      Chuck Bradley who owns the 'Shooters Connection,' a gun shop in Georgetown  specializing in competition-style rifles, says banning assault rifles wont stop these kinds of shootings from happening, and feels the lack of firearms at schools is why they're targeted so often in mass shootings.

      Bradley believes schools should have administrators or teachers who can carry firearms in the buildings.

      He feels these teachers should be required to take special training courses similar to what police are trained in.

     Bradley says if legislation passes that would ban such types of rifles, then his business and the sport of competition shooting would fail.

the "assault" rifle is not the problem..the proliferation of gun free zomes and the liberal dispensation of certain psychiatric drugs is the most definitive factors in mass killings in America...besides the last time I checked the constitution is the supreme law of this land and all those politicians and law enforcement officials as well as military men took and oath to uphold the constitution above all.

Yes and there should be an immediate 'stay' on the sales of guns of any sort until new laws are advocated to prevent a run on guns by those who feel they can't live without a stockpile in their man cave.

Only if at the same time they make a bill that declares all the other guns off limits to any further debate of any kind of bans.
