Gun Nuts

Today's Gun Nut
I would sooner lay my child to rest than succumb to the belief
that the use of a gun for self-defense is somehow not in itself a gun crime.

Guns, teachers, and self-defense

I AM a math teacher at Brockton High School, the site of a school shooting earlier this month.
Current school security procedures lock down school populations in the event of armed assault. Some advocate abandoning this practice as it holds everyone in place, allowing a shooter easily to find victims.

An alternative to lockdown is immediate exodus via announcement. Although this removes potential hostages and makes it nearly impossible for the shooter to acquire preselected targets, it unfairly rewards resourceful children who move to safety off-site more shrewdly and efficiently than others.

Schools should level playing fields, not intrinsically reward those more resourceful. A level barrel is fair to all fish.

Some propose overturning laws that made schools gun-free zones even for teachers who may be licensed to securely carry concealed firearms elsewhere. They argue that barring licensed-carry only ensures a defenseless, target-rich environment.

But as a progressive, I would sooner lay my child to rest than succumb to the belief that the use of a gun for self-defense is somehow not in itself a gun crime.

That is one sick puppy teaching school kids.

Um, "a level barrel is fair for all fish"?

Debating with this guy would be like.....SFIAB.

Cynical satire cleverly written to expose the ludicrous “level playing field” mentality so ingrained in today’s schools.

Gorder is so obsessed with level, I'll betcha he thinks or wishes the earth were flat.
It's hard to believe anyone living in this country in this time could say what he did. That he would have his own child go meekly to the slaughter is absolutely frightening. Another name for the re-education camp list, but I doubt he is redeemable.

I'm morally certain that this is satire, but so dead on that it reads like the real thing.

Captcha: "edentail". Ooh, yeah, I'll take me summadat.

i'm not anonymous i'm lunaticcringeradio and i haven't linked my accounts.

well i am in a moral conundrum on the issue of TEACHERS being armed in school. k through 12.
my first problem is that by far the majority of teachers are ultra progressive liberal socialists all to saul alinskys plan. how many of those lefties do you think will even pick up a gun issued to them.
this feeds my second theory that when a crisis occurs and a few lefty teachers natural survival instincts for fight or flight might actually engage to the points they actually open the safe that their assigned gun is being stored. do you think they will handle the gun properly, even if they were trained? i have this horrible picture in my mind of how some lefty teacher in tears as she watched the gunman kill all the students in the room is cowering on the floor on the corner sobbing uncontrollably just holding the gun shakily with her finger not even on the trigger and one arm covering her face. i see the gunman walking up to her and snatching the gun from her hand before he shoots her finally. he killed her last because as he was killing all the students in the room he knew she was never a threat in the first place. now the gunman has another gun at his disposal.
thirdly it's people who understand guns, understand the responsibility in owning and operating a gun, who are not a danger. i do not think lefties fit that description since they are more "in touch" with their feelings than us "cold hearted" righties. i believe they are more likely to fly off the handle in an emotional rage and use the gun themselves as an aggressor. hmmm where did we see that happen. this is also the reason i suspect lefties are so anti gun in the first place, because they don't trust themselves most of all. of course everyone is an individual and i'm not making a complete blanket statement, but i'll bet i'm safe in saying i'm 99% right. this lefty writer is a perfect example that can't deal with a crisis since he would rather see their child die that to drop their "morally superior" opinion that they hide behind with their smug & elitist attitude to hide the reality that they are more afraid of their dark thoughts and lack of self control.
if you are afraid of a gun, i tend to believe it is because you don't trust yourself to behave properly.
when it comes to liberal progressive socialists, i tend to agree, i don't trust them either.

Gorder... if your child means so little to you that you would consider for even the slightest moment allowing some dirtwad to take him or her from you, then why don't you just drown the kid in the bathtub and save the bad guy some ammo?

Why did you have the child in the first place?

Bottom line: from the moment you harm my child, you are rancid, dead meat and I am the garbage man. I will chase you to the rusty gates of Hell itself, but I will take you out. Think about harming my child and you will not fare much better.

I believe there are two types of people; Those that believe man is
inherently good and rational, and those that believe man is inherently bad and irrational, with those that tend to be on the right hold the former belife and those on the left the latter. (And all tend to act accordingly in within their belife systems.)

I keep falling victim in thinking those on the left will act, think and legislate rationally. As it turns out I am the one who is being irrational by thinking that the lefty progressive F**K's will act and think rationally. (These pukes can justify anything. WTF?)

Hand out condoms, talk about safe handling of your "Works", but Eddy the Eagle is not allowed in your Elementary School.

Murphy: It's satire.

Dead on satire disguised as the real thing in order to get printing in a severely left wing newspaper.

It was supposed to be hard to tell from a real leftist's opinion ... if it was easy to spot as satire, it would not have made it into the paper as a guest opinion.

I'm a U.S. History teacher in a Texas high school. I have 15 years teaching experience, a double-major (Political Science and History) B.A. and a Master's Degree (History).

I'm also an Endowment Life member of the NRA. Gun-free zones are shooting galleries for murderous trolls. I can't exercise my Concealed Carry permit on school grounds.

If this over-educated doofus is scared of firearms, fine. Twenty-four years of military training and 12 years with a Concealed Carry permit have rendered me respectful, not fearful of firearms. He is another one who relies upon the tender mercies of others to protect and defend his useless ass. I prefer to rely upon my own skills and judgement.

I work to roll back the LibCong tide, one student at a time, one day at a time.

I tremble for the Republic. There's too many of these asshats in education.
