Quote of the day–Alan Gottlieb

The time is overdue for a reassessment of such laws. All they have done is create target-rich, no-risk environments for monsters who have no fear of encountering an armed teacher or administrator, or a legally-armed private citizen who might happen to be in the building.

This sort of thing didn’t happen before the advent of gun-free school zone laws. You never saw such an outrage in the days when high schools typically had rifle teams, and — particularly in the West — where it was common in the fall to find both teachers and students with hunting rifles or shotguns locked in their cars.

  1. Does he have a time machine or is he just able to “see” two years into the future?

  2. That was me. I was able to see two years into the future and predict what Alan was going to say in a news release.

    Either that… or I had a typo which now appears to be fixed. There are alternate explanations for it being fixed too. I could have been time traveling in my sleep again and changed it without realizing it.

    Any resemblance between the above views and those of my employer, my terminal, or the view out my window are purely coincidental. Any resemblance between the above and my own views is non-deterministic. The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold them is left as an exercise for the reader. The question of the existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god coefficient. (A discussion of non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism is beyond the scope of this comment.)

    [This last paragraph was plagerized from someone else at least 20 years ago and I don’t remember who it was.]
