I know I pray quite a bit for my brother...more so lately. He teaches special needs high school kids. He hears threats quite a bit
He continued: "I don't agree that conservatives and libertarians should view government legislation, especially at the federal level, as the solution to violence. Real change can happen only when we commit ourselves to rebuilding civil society in America, meaning a society based on family, religion, civic and social institutions, and peaceful cooperation through markets."
I don't think it's such a big deal there are armed guards at a private school in the DC area where oodles of vulnerable children of the richest/most powerful people in the world attend.
The guns are fine for these politicians to have around them to protect themselves and their families but us common folk can't be trusted to with them to defend our families because of the crazies and the criminals. Funny thing is you won't find a greater collection of crazy and criminal than you will in the government.
We all understand private schools can do what they want. Put public schools should have armed officers as well
The rich and powerful want to enjoy the protection provided by legal private gun ownership and at the same time they want to make it harder for the common person to legally protect themselves with a gun. If you cant see the hypocrisy there you are simply trying not to.
****ed view of government if you think Pelosi grandstanding is the same thing as the government acting upon your right to bear arms.
I've not seen ONE meaningful restriction on your ability to own a handgun proferred by ANYONE. Not one. Hell, even the worst out of all of them, Ms. Nancy, isn't asking to take away handguns!!!! And newsflash- if it's going to be illegal for private citizens to have certain kinds of guns in the future, private security firms can't have them either. If they're given an exception, we can all hire a private security firm WHENEVER WE WANT. You can send your kids to super-security private schools right now, if you wish. There's no functional difference b/n them and us except they're rich and powerful, and we're not.
You idiots just like running around with your hair on fire over the smallest perceived slight.
I mean, this is a really simple distinction, people. You don't have to go to law school to see the difference.
So the Democrats/Liberals dont actually want anything different regarding guns than the Republicans/Conservatives/Libertarians/Independents/Average people who they are demonizing want?
But that's besides the point. My point is that there's a significant difference b/n the two concepts that it's hardly hypocritical, and even if it is to some degree, CERTAINLY not to a large enough degree for y'all to get your panties in a wad..
I still contend that it is hypocritical to rail against gun ownership while enjoying it yourself.
Are you all worried about the cost or the fact that a public school would have an armed guard?
Help me see the difference.
I think there is a HUGE difference between a private institution providing its own security at the request/need of the tuition payers versus the government mandating it against the will of a parent to make that choice.
First report I heard on the shooting about weapons used was he had pistols and they found a bushmaster AR is the trunk of the car. Then I heard he killed most of them with an AR (medical examiner said the wounds were from an AR) NOW I hear that they found 2 more pistols and in fact the AR was in the trunk. Anybody know the validity of this? This seems more and more like a political agenda massacre now. Strange shit going on.
