    Ha! That is exactly right! We can't have our states reputation dragged through the mud...our Governor must be thought of with the same mythical presence as a modern day Paul Bunyon.

    Some say, Perry carries a Desert Eagle, a knife crafted from the same piece of steel used to make Excalibur, and a blunderbuss as his BUG.

    Perry is Correct. Gun Free Zones are just Game Preserves for the Predators. But the libertards don`t see it that way,they think everybody obeys the law.

    because they aren't thinking,just responding, Israel has armed teachers and volunteers in their schools, and surprise, surprise,no mass shootings. I think Perry has a good idea.

    Maryland I know what you mean. I was born and raised there and still work there, but recently moved to Pennsylvania. So much nicer here!

    My thoughts as well..and...knowing how to deal with a threat in a chaotic crowded place involves more than just having a gun.

    Actually in Tennessee as a HCP holder I can drive through a school zone to drop off or pick up my child as long as I don't go in or stop for any other person. I think we could get it passed here as well

    In theory I think everyone would agree but the problem is that it is not economically viable, and it never will be. Here's why. Let's take an elementary school of 200 kids, 20 staff and 1 building. If we add one security guard that would be $30k+ (just a rough estimate) a year. The guard has no other duties, so the school board will look at that every year and say, wow I wish we could do something else with that money. Now, is one guard enough? I would argue that it's absolutely not. But, will the board add 4 more? Of course not. But, if we could have an arrangement where people who would otherwise be in school anyway could step in on the rare occasion that security is needed, then it becomes much more viable. Instead of paying $30k a year for one guard, maybe the school could pay $15k a year for weapons training for 10 staff.

    The problem is that with a full time guard you pay continually for services that may rarely be needed. It's the same reason that most of us don't have security details at our houses and opt for a few guns at home that we can use ourselves should the need arise.

    There are many people that are capable enough of teaching and carrying a weapon at the same time. I think we should have a system where staff should be able to volunteer, receive training (and background checks) and carry. This doesn't force anyone to do anything they don't want to do, and it naturally selects those inclined and willing to help protect others.

    So how many millions upon millions of dollars did the school unions spend to get the dictator and chief re-elected. Seems there's plenty of money to throw around when it comes to what they want. Obviously it's not protecting the children in these goverment sanctioned killing fields though.

    A smaller federal government would result in having more cash within the states. I haven't run numbers estimates, as it's a complex question, but that would certainly free up capital.

    No question is insoluble. Some just require creative thinking and will to achieve it.

    Whatever else is true, the solution is likely going to require a mix of elements, as no single thing is likely to be viable for any number of reasons.
