Florida lawmakers are trying to allow school districts to arm teachers, and there are some really ill-informed and nonsensical arguments against the idea out there.

On Tuesday, the Florida Senate approved a bill to allow public school teachers to carry firearms if local school boards agree to it. Conservative Gov. Ron DeSantis has previously expressed an openness to the idea, but it still hasn’t passed the House.

Under the bill, the educators who choose to bring guns to school would would have to undergo a psychological evaluation and also take over 140 hours of training, which would be evaluated by local law enforcement.

Gun rights activists held a press conference on April 25, 2019, at the Legislative Office Building and then met with the governor's office to request that he veto bills they said would put women and schools in the Granite State in danger. The Women's Defense League of NH and a few of their supporters in the Legislature submitted two boxes of postcards as well as two signed posters requesting Gov. Chris Sununu "hold the line" against the bills. Specifically, members of the organization were critical of HB 109, a background check bill, HB 514, a waiting period bill, and HB 564, which seeks to ban weapons from schools.

Todd has said he believes prayer saved his life that day. But since then, he has pushed for a different kind of intervention in instances such as Columbine.

Todd has become a gun-rights activist, including carrying a concealed weapon of his own, and his pet cause is allowing teachers to carry guns in schools.

This month, as the Columbine anniversary neared, he told a Colorado radio reporter, "What actually stops these from happening? And in the world we live in, a firearm is one of those ways. And a firearm would have saved lives at Columbine."

The woman has a firearm owners’ identification card and is licensed to carry a weapon in Illinois. But her lease says residents and their guests are prohibited from having or displaying guns in the apartment or on housing property.

Violating that condition could result in the lease being terminated.

Earlier this month, a federal judge ordered the housing authority to amend their rules to allow tenants to own guns.

In his decision, U.S. District Judge Phil Gilbert wrote: “Among whatever else, the Second Amendment protects the right of a law-abiding individual to possess functional firearms in his or her home for lawful purposes, most notably for self-defense and defense of family.”

The Democratic Party is anti-gun and of course, anti-NRA. They don’t think you, as a law-abiding American, deserve to protect and defend yourself and your family.

Your constitutional rights are up for discussion.

This, from the same party that advocates for rights for illegal immigrants, does nothing to impede illegal immigration or enforce the border, or the law.

Second Amendment advocates say two bills headed for the governor's desk could have deadly consequences.

Those in favor of the bills say they just involve a longer wait-time to acquire firearms, but local representative Brad Klippert voted no on both.

He says they're both bad for victims of domestic violence.

Representative Brad Klippert said the wait might turn potential violent crime victims into sitting ducks.

AL: Concealed-carry bill holstered for now

When it comes to regulating firearms, Alabama really doesn’t have much common sense.

This week, there was a spark, albeit a small one, in the Senate Tourism Committee. The committee rejected a bill, sponsored by Sen. Gerald Allen, R-Tuscaloosa, that would have allowed residents to carry concealed weapons legally without a permit.

This was a bad idea from the outset, but the gun culture in Alabama loved it. No longer would the gun lovers have to pay their local sheriff for a carry permit. While the fee for the permit isn’t prohibitive, the supporters of so-called “constitutional carry” believe their right to carry and hide their weapons is covered under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Those, who have the command of the arms in a country are masters of the state, and have it in their power to make what revolutions they please. [Thus,] there is no end to observations on the difference between the measures likely to be pursued by a minister backed by a standing army, and those of a court awed by the fear of an armed people. — Aristotle, as quoted by John Trenchard and Water Moyle, An Argument Shewing, That a Standing Army Is Inconsistent with a Free Government, and Absolutely Destructive to the Constitution of the English Monarchy [London, 1697].
