Oops!

WOW! Do I smell a set up or what!

The Washington Post reported a few days ago that, “A teacher [Dennis Alexander] who is also a reserve police officer trained in firearm use ‘accidentally’ discharged a gun Tuesday at Seaside High School in Monterey County, Calif., during a class devoted to public safety, school officials said in a statement.”

Folks – this story is just too convenient not to be given closer scrutiny by authorities. It won’t because it’s California, but it should. And in a class specifically “devoted to public safety.” Please. Also, by sheer coincidence, the incident happened one day prior to the national student walkout against everything guns.

“I can’t find the words to say how sorry I am for the incident,” he said at the packed meeting attended by about 100 students who supported Alexander.

“Police have said Alexander was pointing the gun at the ceiling Tuesday to make sure it was not loaded when it discharged inside his classroom at Seaside High School.” The ceiling? And this guy is trained in the proper handling of firearms? Again – please! read more

Liberals May Take Advantage of a Tragic Gun Accident

Most have heard the saying regarding terrorism. We have to be right 100% of the time, yet the terrorists need only be right once.

It means that we on the receiving end of terrorism must be 100% effective in stopping all attacks before they happen. However, the terrorists may only have to slip through our dragnet once to wreak havoc on civilized society. So far, they have been moderately successful. I say moderately, because we have had good success thwarting many would-be attackers.

But every time they do make it through, or we drop the ball, the results are tragic and headline grabbing. This same set of scenarios can easily be transferable to gun owners.

Gun owners must conduct themselves with safety first 100% of the time. I’m not talking about lunatics who shoot up movie theaters and churches. They are crazy people – not responsible gun owners.

The press still attempts to tie them to the rest of us law abiding owners, but even for them, it’s a bit of a stretch.

Liberal media and anti-gun politicians are in a constant search for otherwise normal law-abiding citizens to screw up, so they may point to a lack of gun control. read more
