Purse was a bad example for a teacher, unless they are carrying some sort of "belt purse" type of holstered firearm.Originally Posted by ivanbalt
But yes, I favor each and every law-abiding citizen the right to self defense, regardless of their profession. A teacher should not be denied the equal protection of the law just because they are in a school, which seem to be big target-rich environments to a deranged murderer.
I guess it's up to each and every person to decide whether they want to be a victim or not, whether the "law" gives them the choice or not.
My wife is a teacher. She is more than proficient with a firearm. However, she wouldnít want that responsibility and I donít have a problem with that. They have six security officers at her school. One of the security officers is a police officer and carries a weapon. No problems or complaints that I am aware of. Unfortunately, that police officer is also assigned security at two other schools and may be off campus for extended periods of time during the day. Of the remaining five that are on campus for the entire school day, two are retired police officers. Not an uncommon occurrence in this particular jurisdiction. Retired law enforcement, ex-military, corrections officers, etc. There are plenty of those types of resources and others available. Relax the restrictions and allow them to carry their weapons. Get the Fedís out of the picture and let the states decide and implement the appropriate security for their schools. Washington, D.C. is not the solution. Itís the problem. There are ways to make it happen and provide some protection if there is a will to get it done. For you goofs that think that banning the private possession of firearms is the solution then you may as well get used to burying your children because thatís never going to happen.
You sir, have just confirmed that you are unfit to be in possession of any firearm, concealed or not. You are not judge, jury and executioner, but merely a lynch man, doing what similar lawbreakers did to your forefathers over a hundred fifty years ago.
You have violated the first rule of responsible gun ownership in losing your cool.
Tsk, tsk, permit application for Baltimore Ken denied, due to disorderly conduct unbecoming of a responsible gun owner.
The Lanza's home was certainly not a gun free zone. How much good did that do his mother, who taught him how to kill?
In warfare, nothing is guaranteed. Friendly fire results in casualties whenever bullet fly.
We have endured more than 10 years of "Gun Free Zones" and that concept has proven utterly and completely insane, if not asinine.
I am so glad that you do not show any motivation towards obtaining your concealed carry permit. In going on public record as intentionally "losing you cool", unlike any of the parents who suffered real tragedy last week, you sir have no business even touching a firearm.
