Quote of the day—James Comer

Anytime there’s a tragedy like that you hear gun control advocates spin their liberal beliefs, At the end of the day, it’s illegal to carry a gun in a school and it’s illegal to shoot at anybody. And yet this 15-year-old broke those laws. You can’t legislate against evil.

I don’t think there’s a way to pass a bill to prevent something like that. We need better security in our schools. We have a lot of security at our courthouses. How do we increase security at schools? That’s what I’m going to be talking about.

Rep. Comer advocates Goodlatte bill as DACA solution
[A bit of clarification.

You can legislate punishment for evil doers. But you can’t legislate a prevention for evil deeds.

In the case at hand the best solution is probably to legislate the removal of laws. Get rid of the laws that punish teachers and parents who bring guns to school for the purpose of protecting innocent life.—Joe]

  1. Schools should be offering incentives to faculty and staff who are inclined to go armed.

    Provide training so that they are advanced beyond the basic skills required in many states for concealed carry.

    Encourage practice time as skills are perishable.

    Of course just those suggestions would make the antis go into fits and start raving. Actually, all the more reason to make those suggestions.

  2. Security at courthouses is generally far stronger than at schools, yet the occasional attack on a judge still occurs. Which is why many judges opt to carry concealed. Why should our students get less consideration?

    • You know why– It would require the leftists to cede the concept of the legitimacy of armed citizen defense. They CANNOT cede that point. It would set back their cause of collectivism by a hundred years.

  3. “I don’t think there’s a way to pass a bill to prevent something like that.”

    If there were, it would be unconstitutional, and more importantly it would be immoral. Laws are for bring a perpetrator to justice after the act. Laws are NOT for the idiotic purpose of rendering the criminal act impossible. Try passing a law making it impossible for a man to rape a woman, for example, even when he had the intent and plan to do so. What exactly would that law entail? Right.

    I suppose there are those psychotics would entertain such a law, and it is FROM THOSE PEOPLE and their presumed good intentions that the constitution was intended to protect us. The constitution however, like any law, can be and is being broken. There is no law enforcement agency dedicated to enforcing the constitution. No perpetrators are being arrested. And so it will have to down to brute force against brute force at some stage, or a surrender of liberty. That’s where the leftists (criminal psychotics driven by their false self-identity as victims and champions of victims) are taking us (all for the children of course, and a thousand other “good causes”).

  4. I became a teacher after I retired from over 20 years as a firefighter and paramedic, where I spent part of my career working with the SWAT team. I spent years as an IDPA competitor, and I am a military veteran. I have carried a concealed weapon for more than 25 years. A permit that has allowed me to carry a weapon into McDonald’s, Disney, public parks, streets and sidewalks. Not once have I used that weapon in a threatening or illegal manner. I have not even had a traffic ticket in more than a decade.
    I have spent more than 30 years wearing one uniform or another, defending the people who could not defend themselves, saving lives, and helping others. In that time, I have had dozens of background checks for security clearances, teaching, firefighting, and paramedic licenses, as well as for concealed weapons permits. Again and again over the past three decades, I have proven my character, my devotion, and my trustworthiness.
    I would, if necessary, lay down my life in defense of the children that have been placed in my care. Even in Kindergarten. Possibly YOUR children, if you are reading this.
    Except the politicians have declared that I am not permitted to do so, because they don’t trust me with a firearm once I cross an imaginary line and enter school property, even though they trust me to carry one everywhere else. So instead, I must sit in the dark, unarmed, unable to protect those children, hiding and waiting for help that may not come, wait with your children to die at the hands of a madman who didn’t obey your laws or your signs.
