The Children Have Spoken About Guns in School

by Janalee Tobias
Founder/President, Women Against Gun Control

They also want the 'bad guys' to think that if they come into their school to shoot it up, that a 'good guy' is going to shoot them back and protect the children."

Friends, On Monday, June 30, 2003, 1 p.m., the 5th grade class of Miss Erickson, at South Jordan Elementary, South Jordan, Utah, held a mock trial. The issue at trial: Should guns be allowed in school? South Jordan Elementary school is in Jordan School District where policy is currently being drafted regarding CCW permit holders taking guns to school.

Each legal team consisted of five brilliant 5th graders. Each side presented charts and facts to the jury which consisted of twelve 5th graders, half boys, half girls. An "expert witness" on each side testified: "me" for the "guns in school" side, and a women from the University of Utah represented "no guns in school." The principal was subpoenaed for the "no guns in school" side, but he didn't show up for trial. Rumor has it that he was afraid to go against me, and there may be a warrant out for his arrest. :) 

After about 45 minutes of intense debate, the jury left the classroom and deliberated behind closed doors for five minutes. The verdict: 12-0 in FAVOR of guns in schools.

The comments of the jurors reflected their fear of a crazed criminal coming in and shooting up the school. They want teachers to be able to carry a gun for their protection as long as they know how to use it, know the safety rules, and keep it out of the reach of students. They also want the "bad guys" to think that if they come into their school to shoot it up, that a "good guy" is going to shoot them back and protect the children.

The verdict is in: Children think that the best way to "save the children" is to let honest, law-abiding citizens carry guns for protection.

Please forward this to everyone you know.

In fact, feel free to write letters to the editor. The Salt Lake Tribune is: and the Deseret Morning News is:

Thanks for listening.

Best personal regards,

Printer Version

The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
