Rick Perry: Teachers should
have ‘access to weapons
in their school’

NBC News, by Clare Kim

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/18/2012 8:22:16 PM

Former Republican presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry said Monday that anyone with a concealed handgun license in Texas should be able to take guns "anywhere" on public property–including schools. The debate triggered by last Friday’s shooting in Newtown has largely broken down into two sides: those who say tighter gun control would’ve made the town’s children safer, and those who believe that arming the school principal and teachers might have stopped the gunman before he could kill 26 people. At a Tea Party event Monday, former Republican presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry became the highest-profile

I´m very sorry that the Nation voted for a Santa Claus rather than a real leader like Perry. What a shame.

Yes, we´re so lucky to live in Texas! This should cause apoplexy in DC.

bear spray can drop a 1000 lb bear at 20 ft. Imagine what that will do to a 200 lb man.

Good point, #4. When the powers-that-be try to keep you helpless, you might have to get creative.

Disagree # 6.

Our neighborhood HS has 4 long wings. The Resource Officer may be accross campus when a bad guy goes in the end door and wipes out a classroom in 30 seconds.

Will not work. Deranged minds would not care if there is a cop on campus.

Require interested, volunteer teachers to obtain a concealed carry permit with additional training specifically related to engaging a shooter. Boost their pay for the additional responsibility.

A sweet little old grade school teacher could become a formidable mother hen and an angry brood of half a dozen could quickly take down a campus intruder. Teachers have a special bond with their students and will not hesitate to defend them if allowed.

My wife, a 30 year Middle School teacher, can out-shoot me with her Glock 19. Don´t tell me they can´t handle it.

Well, the anti-gun liberals probably can´t. They can hide with the kids.

I think that schools should be entered only through manned gates, which have "dead man" switches to sound an alarm in case the gate house employees are injured or worse.

Additionally every individual set of perhaps four classrooms within a school should have one "safe room" secured so that the children can be kept safe during any emergency.

#6, you didn´t have the elementary school teachers I had. Nor did you have my mother, who taught 1st through 8th grade in her 40 or so years of teaching. She was one tough old girl. She had a paddle swing Josh Hamilton would have envied, and she´d have dropped you in your tracks with absolutely no regret if you posed a threat to one of her kids. She´s 86 now and can walk only with great difficulty. But she still lives in her own home with her first husband (91 now) and there´s a loaded 12 gauge pump right behind their recliners.

#6, are you trying to state that teachers cannot be trained?

The easiest, fastest, most economical way to defend against lunatics that want to kill our kids is with an armed teacher staff. It would only take a few of the teachers to be "packing", so it would be totally voluntary training. They would be the well-trained militia at our schools.

Liberals will never understand this, due to their lack of logic, common sense, and analytical abilities.

Democrats predicted that concealed-carry laws would bring about endless shoot-outs here in Texas.

Said shootouts have utterly failed to materialize.

Perhaps ordinary citizens ARE far more intelligent and responsible than Democrats and their corrupt Media Moutpieces make us out to be.

Why are these mass murders always in "gun-free zones?"

Why do these mass murderers never attack police stations?

I don´t think anybody´s in favor of teachers getting guns willy nilly. You not only have to be trained on the mechanics of a gun but you have to have the personal make up to stay cool under the worst kind of pressure. Most teachers aren´t cut out for that,especially in blue states.

You have a lot of people running around walking a tightrope between reality and fantasy and all it takes is a tipping point issue for them to snap.

I think the culture of school bullying causes a lot of internal rage among picked on kids and the school system has been wholly inadequate at dealing with bullies, especially with the southern poverty center keeping a scorecard on what races at being hardest hit with suspensions.

All government institutions live under the constant fear of lawsuits if something goes wrong,so they choose to do nothing instead.

There are worksites that encourage employees to enhance the safety of the workplace by choosing to become certified in First Aid, AED, and CPR. The employer pays for the training, during work hours, and provides a slight salary increase for those who remain current in their certification.

Why not apply this to employees who volunteer to carry a firearm at work, are certified(carry permit), and maintain that certification?

#19, a good last ditch tool for each room perhaps, but somewhat limited. 15 feet or so range and one or two chances, but certainly better than nothing and the non lethal aspect would jump the hurdle many school districts and parents might have about giving every teacher deadly force.

Funny how not much of the media is pointing to how Israel handles security in schools.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

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

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.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
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

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

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

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.

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
