It never fails. We get a couple of school shootings by crazy people and the drive by media promotes trashing the Second Amendment. If a giant meteorite hit Kansas they would promote better meteor control laws.
Voted No the No's still have it
There's another poll on the Clinton News Network (CNN) website that asks: Do you agree with the Wisconsin lawmaker who thinks schools should arm teachers, principals and janitors? So far 5212 votes for and 24243 against. Unbelievable.
"Beware of the man who only owns one gun. He probably knows how to use it."
As stated in their poll; "Do you agree with the Wisconsin lawmaker who thinks schools should arm teachers, principals and janitors?", that statement is misleading in meaning.
One could very easily look at that and think the lawmaker is proposing giving arms to school staff. Thats not the case. He merely proposes legalized allowance by those who wish to do so akin to the federal program toward commercial airline pilots. No doubt with basic state licensed CCW training and extended location/profession specific reaction training as well.
I'm all for that considering the very real dangers that teachers and staff today face in our public schools.
I personally feel that CCW broadly should be allowed to extend onto school grounds and into school facilities be they primary or extended (i.e. public funding colleges & universities) for all as licensed citizens.
As a middle ground they might even make it a type of sub-certification against an otherwise regular CCW license akin to how a motorcylce operators cert is listed against a state drivers license.
Anyway I voted 'No' toward the ABCNews poll only because criminals don't care about laws, hence their name and profession. While for the CNN poll I voted 'Yes' because in real life cases lives could be saved with as much.

I really worry about sending my own kids, 3yrs. and 4 mos., to public schools in the not to distant future.
So from looking at what my vote brought up, abc will write a story that reads, "thousands think more gun control is needed...." Any bets?
Jang - Agreed. We voted the same.
The most exhilarating thing in life is getting shot at with no results.
