School Shootings, Part III: Arming School Administrators?
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"I think we're making progress in educating the Educators. Pressure is building from outside the education community to arm Administrators and it's encountering some resistance, but it could be a sign of progress, nevertheless."

"I disagree with arming more officials. I advocate lifting bans on weapons in the hands of parents and other visitors on campus."

"As I'd mentioned previously, and it's worthy of repeating, the solution is not more officials, but more latitude in recognizing parental authority with less official interference with the rights of parents and citizen visitors. ..."

"Arming the vice-principal is further centralization of power and freezing out the parent once more. ..." ...

"I just sent the short e-mail to the NRA, see below. Hope some of you will also e-mail them. Bill Brown [NRA-PVF and A-rated candidate for Santa Barbara County Sheriff] says he wants a new direction...the question is which direction. Bill Brown told me that anyone in the city should not carry and that he has only given one permit to carry. That person was a federal trapper. I told him there were more wild animals in the city that were far more dangerous. The interview with him went down hill after that. Anyone in Santa Barbara County please forward this to someone you know...that believes in the right for a citizen to protect themselves and their family or friends. ..." ...

"An article published in the online edition of The Fayetteville Observer describes the tragic events of a negligent discharge that resulted in an 18-year-old girl being shot in the chest. All of the facts are not known at this time, but it is being reported that a .380-caliber pistol fell from the pocket of a man with a Concealed Handgun License and discharged at a Fayetteville, NC mall. ..."

"Statistics, historical data, and common sense tell us that those that have passed a background check and been trained to safely carry a firearm for self-defense are the most law-abiding people in this country. That is why we, as a community, must take notice of this incident and do our best to ensure that it remains a rare exception ..." ...

"David Codrea at The War on Guns has posted an article titled 'Life on the Bizarro World'. The story has ruffled my feathers in the extreme. For it shows just how hypocritical and evil that our government has become:"

"Mal Soon Jin, a Korean woman who has lived in the United States for 20 years and run a fruit store with her husband, was minutes away from a moment that looms large for many immigrants in their quest for the American Dream: the naturalization ceremony that would make her a United States citizen..." ...

No charges have been filed, and police believe it may be self-defense. The investigation continues.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A candidate for state school superintendent says he believes old books could be used to protect students caught in a school shooting.

Republican Bill Crozier says if he's elected he would put thick, used textbooks under every desk for students to use as self-defense.

Crozier says he acknowledges the idea may seem a little unusual but he's sticking with it. He says in a recent test an old calculus book stopped a bullet fired by a handgun.

Crozier is challenging Democratic state Superintendent Sandy Garrett.

A spokesman for Garrett says they have no comment on the idea.

"As a lifelong hunter and hobby shooter, I value the right to hunt and own and carry a gun. The National Rifle Association, with its million members, has been the guardian of these rights for many years. There are members of Congress right now who are working to seize these rights and to void the Second Amendment. We have seen these rights abolished in Australia, Great Britain, Canada and Brazil. Let’s not let it happen in the U.S.A."

"The NRA has evaluated the present local candidates, through their past efforts and rated them from 'A-1' which they also endorsed to 'F' being the lowest. The 'A-1' endorsed candidates are: Tim Pawlenty, Mark Kennedy and Gil Gutknecht." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

claims of a state police trooper who fatally shot a motorist forced off the road. The decision keeps a lawsuit by the driver's family on track for a trial sometime next year.

An assistant Michigan attorney general asked Lenawee County Circuit Judge Timothy Pickard to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the family of Jesalynn Simons. The 18-year-old died a day after being shot in the leg by trooper David Rivard.

Pickard watched a patrol-car video of the December eleventh, 2003 incident. He said he saw Rivard shooting through the passenger-door window as the car backed up.

Rivard has testified he shot in self-defense after Simons backed into another patrol car and drove toward him.

NJ: Air pistol owners, if caught, can face prison or walk free

... "The weapon involved was no .357 Magnum or 9mm Beretta. Rather, it was a plastic air pistol that shoots plastic pellets the size of papaya seeds."

"Adults can legally buy the guns for $20 to $75 online or at sporting goods stores without a firearms permit. Parents can buy them for their underage children."

"Yet New Jersey law defines them as firearms. So, get caught with one and you could either walk away or be arrested and charged under the state's tough gun code, which mandates stiff prison terms for unlawful firearms possession." ...

Submitters note: Incredibly, New Jersey law says that these TOYS are firearms. Rational people say if there's no "fire," they can't be firearms. But NJ politicians never have been known to be rational.

"The Michigan United Conservation Clubs, a group of about 500 sporting clubs in the state, has filed paperwork with the Supreme Court to argue against an appellate court's ruling banning the discharge of firearms or bow and arrows in the city for hunting."

"To limit or eliminate the discharge of a firearm or a bow, a city must petition the state Department of Natural Resources for permission for the ban. The appellate court ruled that Saginaw did not have to petition the DNR because firearms control is different from hunting statutes." ...

"The Firearms Act is an onerous and draconian law which was built on a foundation of lies and which serves only to harass and criminalize law- abiding gun owners. It was foisted upon a largely uninformed populace, based on false promises of crime control and public safety."

"The whole purpose of the Firearms Act was to create a 'culture of safety' and to 'reduce crime,' neither of which it has accomplished."

"There are several things that could have been done with the more than $1 billion and 10 years of effort that have been wasted on implementing this boondoggle." ...

"All so-called gun control laws do is serve to harass and criminalize the law-abiding gun owner." ...
