My interpretation of the signs.

School officials troubled over guns appearing On Signs Banning Guns.”

Administrators at a school in the South Suburbs of Chicago are up in arms over a state law (House Bill 0183) that requires schools to post small signs announcing that guns cannot be carried in schools.

So here is how I see this law, if I was a criminal or someone who had a beef with a school I would know that nobody within that building was carrying a concealed weapon and I could do as I would want. I truly believe that the police can’t be everywhere and that 99% of us don’t want to harm people.  So if 99% don’t want to harm, that leaves us with watching that 1%.

So this is all hypothetical – lets assume 25% are licensed to carry, that allows 25 people to be there in an emergency ready to react. I was raised in Ohio, completed their Hunter Safety program in my youth and had some experience in Law Enforcement. With the advent of 24/7/365 news we hear about shootings constantly and around the clock.

Maybe a sign that says “This property protected by Concealed Weapon Individuals” and by the way you won’t know who they are, will you?

Supreme Court and Gun Rights

Supreme Court may rule on guns outside the home

“The Second Amendment does require that the states permit some form of carry for self-defense outside the home,” the panel said. “States may not destroy the right to bear arms in public under the guise of regulating it.”

So time will tell how and when a case makes it to the highest court. So voicing your concerns to your legislature and staying informed will keep the people who make decisions aware of your vote.
