What Did and Did Not Stop the Maryland School Shooting

The Maryland school shooting has predictably NOT garnered a lot of main stream media attention. Tragically one girl did lose her life, but it would have been much worse had an armed resource officer not engaged the dirtbag shooter.

Fred, the joke man, has found for us a list of what did not prevent or stop the school shooting in the leftist State of Maryland.

The Right to Bear the Constitution – or at Least Review It

Many Americans suffer from a common phobia. No, it’s not the very reasonable fear of Democrats running the country. That’s not a phobia, for its not irrational. No, they suffer from an irrational fear of guns. Guns are not inherently scary. They are just a tool – like a screwdriver or a leaf-blower. You’ve heard the saying, the right tool for the right job. You wouldn’t use a gun to blow the leaves around your yard and thus you wouldn’t use a leaf blower to defend yourself. You could try, but I’ll bet it won’t go well.

Yet over the years more and more citizens have been purposely conditioned to think guns are scary. Thus the “Gun Free Zone” was established. These days there are more and more “gun free zones” than ever.

Yet economist John Lott found that, “Since at least 1950, all but two public mass shootings in America have taken place where general citizens are banned from carrying guns. In Europe, there have been no exceptions. Every mass public shooting — and there have been plenty of mass shootings in Europe — has occurred in a gun-free zone.”

Bet you won’t hear that fun fact from the anti-gun lobby.

We hear that restaurants like Starbucks, Chipotle and Panera Bread and chain stores like Target have become gun free zones. Yes, Target allows men and little girls in the same dressing area, but won’t allow guns. Ask a mother or father which is scarier – a law abiding person with a gun, or a creepy old man watching their daughter undress.

Although it’s a stupid policy, I agree with them. They are private businesses and have the freedom to invoke such a policy. read more

Shooting Victims Say No to Disarming

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The gun control nuts are at it again – talking heads and politicians calling for tighter gun laws. And the left is once again spearheading the effort with Obama’s “political” speech and Hillary’s efforts to close gun sale loopholes – as if there are any loopholes left to close.

Hillary also says she wants to repeal the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,” which protects gun dealers and manufacturers from prosecution (or should I say persecution) should one of their weapons be used for nefarious purposes.

Can you imagine the feeding frenzy of the Democrat slip and fall trial lawyers on the gun industry if that were repealed. It would be carnage and the end of most gun manufacturers.

Our society today has been so neutered, so conditioned, that instead of people taking it upon themselves to protect their schools, we look to our nanny government for answers.

Will we ever figure out that our government, as always, is once again the cause of the problem? Never mind suing the gun manufacturers – we should be able to sue the government for facilitating this problem – for setting up “gun free zones.” Still, everyone looks to our great leaders for guidance as to how to solve this “epidemic,” because that’s what sheep do.

But what about the actual victims? Why not ask them what may have helped, instead of our ivory tower pampered politicians with their well armed security details. I find it ironic that when a candidate or politician goes to a school for a function or a speech, the school ceases to be a “gun free zone,” yet somehow that’s not a problem. read more
