If Only More School Boards Had This Much Sense...

A school board in Montpelier, Ohio has exhibited so much common sense over the past few days that Obama may have to issue an executive order just to deal with them. What did they do? They are allowing their 4 custodians (only) to carry handguns in their school.

I think arming school personnel is such a good idea - I've actually been thinking about this for months. If I had my way, any staff member of every school in the country could be armed. (And, if they don't pass the background check what are they doing working in our schools?) I don't want anyone to be forced to carry a gun - I just want those who work in schools who would be willing to protect the innocent to be allowed to do so. (I actually have an accompanying idea that would require the "lockdown" of the gun - on the person - of all that carry guns in schools to make them inaccessible to everyone but the carrier. I'm not ready to share that idea just yet...I may never be. If/when I am, I'll post it here.)

Until guns appear with multiple, properly-trained adults at random locations within schools, your children are sitting ducks in their government-approved "gun free zones". No matter HOW the politicians decide to infringe upon the 2nd Amendment in the coming days, criminals will ALWAYS have guns.

Even if NO ONE in a school is willing to carry a gun to protect the innocent there is still, at the very least, the possibility that these killers that live among us won't know which schools have armed personnel in them...which is more than we have now. That information should NEVER be broadcast...or available for "public consumption" following a Freedom Of Information Law (FOIL) lib-rot site Gawker and The Journal News have recently broadcast lists of registered handgun owners following FOIL requests in the state of New York.

EVERY school in the country should have MULTIPLE mounted signs that state something similar to this:

Having only one uniformed, armed person in every school as the NRA and the Obama administration (Sen. Barbara Boxer suggested this idea to Obama's gun-blood-hound VP Biden - but, since Biden doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground, who besides Obama cares what Biden reports to him in a few days?) is such a stupid idea to me that it is a blatant waste of time to even discuss it...but, here goes (if I must):
  1. One person with one gun in each school is such a pathetic waste because everyone in that school will know where the ONE gun is at most times. If an attacker is a student of that school, he'll know where and when to enter the building and begin the murdering. If one of the kids that attends that school wants to shoot it up, they'll know where the officer is...and who the officer is, even if the officer is not wearing a uniform.
  2. If the officer is at the opposite end of the school from where a killer begins their killing, what good will that one officer be able to do? Unknown numbers of innocent victims could be murdered before that one person with that one gun could take out the murderer.
  3. If an officer can't make it to work on a particular day (due to snow - please note that the supposed existence of ONE armed officer in this school did NOT deter this would-be killer), or is scheduled to not work or is sick on a particular day, again, your kids are still sitting ducks.
  4. If Muslim savages (aka, "terrorists") take over a school here (remember 9/11 - they've attacked the U.S. before - they will again), as they did in Beslan, Russia, one armed officer will be of zero use. MANY armed personnel within a school may also be of zero use in a "Beslan-style" attack. Still, several or many guns have a better chance of having an effect on a group of terrorists than ONE gun does. Right now, with zero guns in schools to protect your kids, they stand zero chance. Almost 1 out of 4 hostages at the Beslan school were killed...more than 350 dead out of about 1200 hostages.
  5. IF the officer IS wearing a uniform, that's who will be shot first. Then, again, there are "no guns" in your school...except of course for whichever guns the killer has most-likely illegally-obtained to carry out his massacre of innocents...even though the president and/or Congress told him not to.
  6. There are many other reasons...I listed 5 above. Add your own below.

Of course, as soon as more guns appear in the hands of the good-guys in our schools, and the rate at which these idiotic school massacres occur declines, crazy people, who are hopped-up on God-only-knows which psychotropic medications, will simply attack all you "gun free" people in all other "gun free zones" in malls, restaurants, movie theaters, etc. Happy shopping.

One last note: If you think a "good guy with a gun" is not the solution to a "bad guy with a gun" who is attacking you and/or your children, by all means, DO NOT CALL THE POLICE if you are ever attacked!

Paper That Published Addresses of Gun Owners Now Concerned With Rights of COMMENTERS on Their Website, the website of The Journal News (TJN) that published an interactive map which includes the names and addresses of law-abiding handgun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties in the state of New York, ironically, is now ultra-worried with the "rights" of people who COMMENT on their website and on their Facebook page. The Journal News doesn't care so much about the right of a citizen to LEGALLY DEFEND themselves from bodily injury at the hand of a criminal (as long as you use a handgun to defend yourself, that is - knives, samurai swords, golf clubs, hammers, crossbows, forks, machetes, & banjos are apparently A-OK). BUT NOW The Journal News is going to be extra-vigilant in making sure you do as THEY wish online, too. They're going to make it "safe" for those who are currently "afraid" to comment to feel as though they can do so. And, they're going to block you from commenting if you don't behave. The Journal News has listed their TOS for you to peruse prior to posting your comments. (I found NOTHING on their website stating that they would publish your email, IP address, operating system, browser type, and a map to your house if you fail to abide by their rules...if you post nasty/stupid/ignorant/waste-of-time comments on this blog I, however, WILL do so.) ;)

Below you'll find a portion of the statement posted on LoHud's website and Facebook page earlier today (emphasis mine):

A note about comments and our Terms of Service

We have received an enormous and intense response since publication of the Westchester/Rockland gun permit holders map on Many of the comments have contributed to an important community discussion. Many, however, have violated’s Terms of Service and Community Rules. We want to hear from all voices and all perspectives, but the tenor of the commentary on and on our Facebook page, located at, has kept many of our users from joining the conversation. To that end, we remind our users that, per our Terms of Service, “We ... reserve the right to terminate the use of any username or account, or to deny access to the Site or any features of the Site, to anyone who violates these Terms of Service or who, in our sole judgment, interferes with the ability of others to enjoy our website or infringes the rights of others.”

(If you wish to read the remainder of the statement posted by The Journal News, go HERE or see the first picture below.)

While it is NOT a violation of someone's first amendment right to block them from posting a comment or to delete their comments from any online forum, it IS just a tad bit ironic coming from TJN since TJN has taken such a holier-than-thou attitude when dealing with what could create LIFE or DEATH situations for some of those they "outed" with their silly map stunt (police officers, crime/domestic abuse/stalking victims). The fact that TJN is now so seemingly concerned with the "tenor of the commentary" on their sites is downright laughable. While TJN has been dealing with some "real" threats this week...
1. "Police probe suspicious envelope received by The Journal News"
2. "Suspicious powder sent to Journal News, 2nd time in a week",
3. "Bomb squad responds to suspicious package at Journal News editor's home" a result of their little map stunt, one would think that TJN would be more concerned with letting people have their say opposed to making it necessary for people to begin sending in their comments via snail mail. Just a thought.

The following is a screen shot of the message TJN posted on their Facebook page:

Killed by banjos?

Born On The 4th Of July...With A Gun In My Hand

Me...with a gun in my hand.
Yes, I was born on the 4th of July. (Clarification for liberals:) No, I wasn't literally born with a gun in my hand. I have lived with them and shot them all my life. I will continue to live with them and shoot them for the rest of my life. My right to do so was granted to me by a power higher than any mortal, Progressive "god".

I have NO doubt that it was written in stone long ago what will be done by the Progressives in this country regarding "guns" long before that troglodyte in the White House was re-elected. Why must they continue with the dog and pony show? Why are they even pretending to have a "commission" that will "investigate" what can be done about the (non-existent) "gun problem" in the United States? Wait, I know the answer to that: To appease those that have lived the past several years (and most of their lives) with their heads crammed up their own butts - aka, more than 1/2 of the population of this country - and to appease those who continue to make the fatal mistake of getting their information from the antique media in this country.

"Forgive them for they know not what they do"... Those that mock us for paying attention. Those that mock us for actually giving a damn about our country. Those that call us names or call us stupid merely because we approach life from a different point of view than their own...not because we have nothing in common, but because they don't like how we THINK about the world or don't like how we SAY what we THINK about the world. Those that would rather shut down this blog than allow me to have my say. These bastards don't come close to understanding the meaning of freedom. Maybe that's because they've never truly known it. But, if they have never truly known it, have any of us? I don't think anyone alive today in the United States has ever truly known freedom. However, I know that MANY of us understand what it means when government grows; it means we lose more freedom - that which we have left. It means we lose the OPPORTUNITY of having or keeping the few freedoms to which we currently still cling.

Any TIME you spend out of your day appeasing ANY government entity in ANY manner equals a LOSS of freedom for YOU. The fact that some of you INSIST on turning over control of parts of your life to a government entity is such a foreign concept to independent thinkers that we lack the ability (and the desire) to understand WHY you choose to do so.

Progressives whine to Conservatives, "tell me one loss of freedom that you've suffered under Obama"? There really is no rational response a Conservative can have to this level of dipshittery from these ignorants that mock and belittle others without cause simply for the sheer sport of it. The simple fact that they have to ask what freedoms have been lost proves that their ignorance is limitless. These are the bastards in this country that DESERVE to lose their freedoms...ALL OF THEM. Instead, because the radical left is in control of the executive branch of our system of government right now, the exact OPPOSITE of what SHOULD happen WILL happen. GOOD people who care about their country, their neighbors, their community, the future of their families and friends, the WORLD, these good people will be the ones to suffer the loss of more freedoms at the hand of yet another power-hungry, "I'm smarter than you; you're too stupid to know what's best for you" progressive pile of dog snack named "Barack Obama". He is going to TRY to take your guns. At a MINIMUM he is going to try to make acquiring guns and/or ammunition so UNappealing to you that you just won't'll have to dedicate so much of your TIME and TREASURE (Liberal translation: MONEY) to acquiring a gun that many people will no longer bother...because they'd prefer to continue living under the delusion that they'd much rather keep their "freedom" and not waste anymore of their TIME appeasing a government they either did or did not assist in putting into place.

Here's my twist on Donald Kaul's recent anti-gun column which originally appeared in the Des Moines Register. (IF you have not read Donald Kaul's column, do so NOW, or the following will be confusing as hell to you):

Here, then, is my “madder-than-hell-and-I’m-not-going-to-take-it-anymore” program for ending gun ignorance in America:

• Reinforce the Second Amendment, the part about "the people" anyway. It’s too well written, simple, and it is impossible for gun-haters to absorb into their sick, demented skulls. It offers an absolute right to gun ownership for THE PEOPLE, as well as putting it in the context of the need for a “well-regulated militia.” We shall make our militia bring their own guns to battles. Every citizen of the United States shall be required to own and be able to properly use a firearm of some kind. And surely the Founders envisioned advancements in weaponry when they guaranteed gun rights. Owning a gun is an absolute privilege, as well as a right.

• Declare the NRA the new "4th Estate" and strongly encourage membership and participation for all citizens. Hey! The media gave up their right to be called "the 4th Estate" long ago, and the media has led to the deaths of more of us than the NRA ever could. (I would also raze all of the headquarters of all media organizations, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles mandatory. If some people refused to take up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.

• Then I would tie Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi, our esteemed Progressive leaders, to the back of a Ford pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.

You know what I say to you, Barack? Suck it! (H/T Kathy Griffin) Do all you'd like to "control" guns, all you'll accomplish is putting more innocent people in harm's way. But, I guess because you're so smart, you already know that, don't you? I know you do. Why, that is your specific intent. You're about to make yourself feel a whole lot more "equal" aren't you, Barack? Leveling out the playing field for ALL in the world is your ultimate goal. Of course, in order to accomplish that goal, you know it is necessary to take the United States down a few pegs, right? Right. Can't stand a winner, can you, Barry? (Because, for a winner to exist, a loser must also be present.) Too bad you're too cocky and self-involved to comprehend what a weaker United States of America really MEANS for the rest of the world. The United States of America, as well as the rest of the world, will be suffering ramifications of your re-election for decades to come. One more time: SUCK IT, BARRY!
