I guess it matters how you vote! People are watching how our Legislators are voting and taking appropriate action.
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?
Cabela’s Inc. partners with NSSF and Project ChildSafe are in the midst of a “Hunt S.A.F.E.” campaign
“S.A.F.E.” is an acronym for Secure your firearms when not in use; Be Aware of those around you who should not have unauthorized access to guns; Focus on your responsibility as a firearm owner; and Educate yourself and others about safe firearm handling and storage.
We the People!
Compliments to the BLM for deciding to end this conflict, peacefully.
I know that people are usually fierce about their beliefs but when did we allow our Representatives to engage in this type of attacks. “Virgina Democrat: Those you support the NRA “pure trash“. This guy doesn’t deserve a seat anywhere in the U.S. if he can’t be civil. We elect our Representatives to represent the majority and honestly if this is the type we elect then maybe its time that the great USA comes to an end. I don’t mind debate but calling people names is childish and something I just wouldn’t expect out of someone running for office.
All I can say is – Don’t elect anybody you don’t feel comfortable with with – Democrat or Republican. If I was in Virginia this one would NOT get my vote….
The Dem’s just don’t get it, Harry Reid: “Fort Hood shooting should revive gun control push.”
First off my sincere sympathies to those affected by the recent shooting. This weapon was purchased legally last month – the shooter went through background check(s). This tragedy could have happened with a knife or any other item. This subject could have used a toaster to hurt people – are we willing to abolish toasters? Don’t get me wrong I abhor this type of crime whether a gun, knife or whatever. Murder is murder but legislating anymore or different types of background checks aren’t really going to help. What say you?
