He said and I qoute," If arming individuals in our schools is a stupid thing to believe in ,then call me stupid", well here goes nothing, HEY, IDIOT, YOU ARE STUPIDDDDD!
What on earth makes anyone think that arming people with guns in our schools is the right thing to do, especially now?
This man, who ,by the way ,is the Director of the NRA, an organization that some people think is a defender of our constitutional rihgts, but in fact, is the bought and paid for puppet of the arms manufacturers,who are more interested in their bottom line than anyones saftey. This "remedy" of more guns in schools is absolutely ignorant and the stated facts about the Isreali's having armed personnel in their schools was and is an outlandish LIE.
These people have done nothing but ramp up the purchase of more guns and ammunition by individuals who already have more guns than some other countries national armies . By raising the fear of national gun control, these self-obsorbed neanderthals have whipped the public into a feeding frenzy at every gunshop,Walmart, and anyplace else that sells guns and in the process has given the manufacturers an early holiday.
Don't think, for a moment that I am against gun ownership, but some things are just absolutely wrong.I own guns ,have for years,operated them for years, at one point ,was ordered to operate them as best as possible and I did,but i also understand the consequenses of having,owning and operating guns. One thing for sure ,is that guns should NEVER be in the areas where children gather,play and have unlimited access.
The NRA has not nor is willing to admit that some of the norms of the past cannot function in an ever changing world where the population is increasing, social activity is increasing,society is more prevalent today than ever before and what we used to do in the past is just that,the past. You either change with the times or they will leave you behind.
As far as more laws are concerned,I think we may want to enhance what we already have and make sure that individuals with mentalor social disoders do not suceed in possessing a firearm in any way,that is one area of the law that does need work and a lot of it because we cannot allow some people to hide behind one law to break another. The idea that someones mental condition is "off limits" is irresponsible and is a major problem that needs to be part of the solution. Changes are going to have to be made weather any of us like it or not, because we , as a society cannot allow this to continue. Now I learn,as I am writting this that firefighters and first responders have been shot at,some have died ,some are severely injured while responding to a house fire,someone with a hhigh powered rifle and with a history of violence and mental instability has done it again
Welcome to our new world!
