Gun-Free Zones

As I sit here and digest what happened to all of those children, sick doesn´t even cover the feelings I have for the parents of these innocent children. However, there is another emotion brewing in my mind as well: fear. At home I own several firearms, and frankly, anyone forcing entry to my home would have a very short life expectancy. However, each day I have to send my children off to a place where the only protection they have is the ideology of wishful thinking. All it takes to take

If the principal and teachers all had guns, would there have been this tragedy?

Yes, but if I put up a "gun free zone" or a "drug free zone" sign, I feel sooo much better about myself. It doesn´t matter that they are useless gestures for some pretended benefit, I feel good about ME!-- Any Liberal

How about a school that has a sign out front that says:

"Caution, we have guns. -The Administration"

I think that could help.

As#1 states; a few heat packing adults in that school might very well have lessened the grisly impact. There will inevitably be an outcry against guns, but refute every such statement with facts. Where the citizenry is armed the shootings and deaths are less. The most unsafe places are gun free zones - schools and education establishments,churches, malls, movie theaters, hospitals. Think about how simple it can be to making these the safest places instead.

Any establishment that posts a "GUN FREE ZONE" sign, is saying that they will be responsible for your safety. If you were to be injured or killed inside such a zone, I believe that you or your dependents would have the right to sue the socks off the owner of that establishment. After all they are now responsible for your personal safety.

I have an idea. How about requiring all gun control advocates to post "Gun Free Zone" signs in front of their homes?

Progressive politicians are not stupid. They are well aware that gun-free zones are dangerous. They know that children can be gunned down. They just don´t care.

One must understand that politicians are by nature, sociopaths. The ´ends justify the means´ is their mantra. The populace must be disarmed, for them to advance an increasingly authoritarian agenda.

Lets just leave concealed carry up to the individual. Once they are 21 or a trained veteran let them decide how to apply their personal 2nd amendment RIGHTS. Since that right to keep...and bear...arms is national, states or municipalities should have no say in regulating it. Your right to carry should be in effect wherever you go inside our borders. Watch the violent crime rate drop all over.

I remember thinking how one former Marine in that class with a legal Glock in his backpack could have dropped that shooter at Virginia Tech. My son would have. Liberals of course say no. Liberals as usual are full of it.

I agree with #1! My husband and I keep ourselves armed 24/7...even when we go to church. We refuse to fly because the government jackboots will not allow us to carry our arms on the airplane. If everyone was required to carry a gun, our world would be much safer.

The writer has to educate his children.
He does NOT have to send them to public schools.
He can send them to private schools.
He can home school them.
There are options.

I think it should be mandatory that all teachers be required to qualify annually on the shooting range and to carry a handgun on their person at all times they are out of their own home. That will quickly stop all this periodic insanity. If you don´t qualify, you don´t teach. It would also halt the leftward drift of our education system--a twofer.

I see in the news today that Jerrod Nadler is screaming for more gun control. I guess that he believes that owning flatware is what made him morbidly obese.

Well, the Fed Gvt should give the schools and other gun free zones, money to post larger signs telling these murdering savages they are entering a gun free zone- that should do it- Oh, and going out on a limb here, the signs should be in three languages, with English being no bigger or smaller than the other languages, just to be all PC- perhaps Spanish and Jive.

How ´bout we abolish state-run schools rather than step on 2A or tell private organizations whether or not they may deny or permit firearms on their premises?

If a government bureaucrat declares a school a "gun free zone" but then fails to secure the school or enable anyone in the school to defend it, then that bureaucrat and government should be held liable. They´re not. Instead, the same government idiocracy attempts to impose more lunacy contrary to common sense on us.

Social Security stops trying

seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

   

 



 
Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
