Proof that the only way to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a bigger gun http://news.yahoo.com/mom-shot-intruder-inspires-gun-control-foes-003753089.html

Archie Bunker You's is a Meat Head, maybe we need to have guards with bazookas and grenagde launchers. Truth is someone those who comitt these types of violent acts could have been stopped very long before they even picked up the assault weapon. Just as if we (government) had paid attention to the reports coming from groups like Scottland Yard and Interpol which warned the U. S. should have been on the alert for terrorists who will do mass destruction from either air or water. Bigger guns will not stop tose with crazy ideas once they set the plan in motion we have to stop them before they pick up the weapon. We also have to make it as hard as possible to obtain such weapons.

What I was referencing to is the attack on the World Trade Center. News media reported that we were warned of terrorist attack and what did the U. S. do?

Are you blaming the 9/11 attacks entirely on Bush? Clinton has a number of chances to deal with Al Qaeda and take out Bin Laden, but was too busy with Monica and other personal issues

What I was try to get accross is that when creditable sources recognize serious or very dangerous situations or individuals why do so many turn their heads in denial? If you lived next to a neighbor who acted more then suspicious and you warned your children to say clear of him would you just leave it at that? I know law suites could follow but in this day and age vigilance the key word. Hopw would you feel if the same person attacked your child and then you learn neighbors had fears about this person and the way he acted? Times have changed drastically and so do laws.
