Intentionally Misleading and Deceptive Reporting by Mainstream Media

Intentionally Misleading and Deceptive Reporting by Mainstream Media in Reports of Gun Show Accidents on Gun Appreciation Day.

In what can only be described as bad timing, there were unfortunate accidents involving discharged firearms at three gun shows today which also happens to be Gun Appreciation Day.   The mainstream media is intentionally misleading and deceptive in their reporting of the accidental discharge in North Carolina's Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh.

Reuters, Associated Press and the conglomerate of reckless media known collectively as mainstream media are reporting that an attendee of the show, Gary Wilson, accidentally discharged his own firearm, a shotgun, while removing it from its case for a safety inspection, however, this is outright false and nothing more than a fabricate lie created to fit the agenda of the anti gun left, because the truth and facts are, that it was a POLICE OFFICER entrusted with safety checks of firearms at the entrance who accidentally discharged the firearm, and it was NOT a shotgun, as reported by Ryan Reynolds, an attendee who was there when it happened..

As the debate for gun control wages on, the anti gun liberal filth tend to believe that police are "trained" and are the only ones who should have guns, so, naturally the liberal mouthpieces of mainstream media would distort facts and outright lie, because it goes against their anti-gun agenda..

In one of the other accidental discharges at a different gun show, an unnamed, unknown person sold a loaded handgun to a dealer and then walked away as the dealer racked the slide to inspect it. One, loaded weapons are not permitted inside gun shows, so, this unknown, unnamed person obviously bypassed security by not declaring his or her possession of a firearm, and in my opinion, probably had the malicious intent to cause an accidental discharge for the purpose of sabotaging the gun show in order to further the liberal anti-gun agenda.  Why would one walk away after attempting to sell a weapon?

The Second Amendment: America's Defense Against Tyranny

The Second Amendment: America's Defense Against Tyranny

In the recent weeks since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, anti American progressive filth like Piers Morgan and the like have gone to extreme lengths to demonize American gun owners and supporters of our inalienable right to keep and bear arms as acknowledged in the second amendment to the US Constitution.  

According to Piers Morgan, during a broadcast with his guest Ben Shapiro, the idea of the American government becoming tyrannical is "absurd".   Prior to that, he scoffed at radio show host Alex Jones for believing the US government would ever become tyrannical.

 Contrary to what unintelligent imbeciles like Piers Morgan think or claim to be absurd in regards to tyranny, history proves over and over that governments can and did turn against the people and become one of a tyrannical nature.

 It is dumbfounding that anyone could argue the deceptive falsehood that our own government isn't heading towards one of tyranny when all the warning signs are clear as day, proving that, yes, tyranny IS currently possible in America.

Over the last decade, the government has been systematically restricting the rights and liberties of the American people all under the false pretense of "security", and has gone to extreme lengths in implementation of a massive total surveillance police state rivaling that of the former GDR Ministerium für Staatssicherheit commonly known as Stasi.      Anyone who believes our government couldn't ever, or wouldn't ever become one of tyrants is suffering cognitive dissonance, or perhaps is either delusional, or are so far left that they actually support it and want it to happen, therefore do anything they can to make sure it happens.

All the signs are there, proving that YES, our government IS progressing towards tyranny as shown in this list of signs of tyranny from Jon Roland's article, Principles of Tyranny.

The methodology of tyranny

The methods used to overthrow a constitutional order and establish a tyranny are well-known. However, despite this awareness, it is surprising how those who have no intention of perpetrating a tyranny can slip into these methods and bring about a tyranny despite their best intentions. Tyranny does not have to be deliberate. Tyrants can fool themselves as thoroughly as they fool everyone else.
  • Control of public information and opinion
It begins with withholding information, and leads to putting out false or misleading information. A government can develop ministries of propaganda under many guises. They typically call it "public information" or "marketing" 
  • Vote fraud used to prevent the election of reformers
  • It doesn't matter which of the two major party candidates are elected if no real reformer can get nominated, and when news services start knowing the outcomes of elections before it is possible for them to know, then the votes are not being honestly counted.
    • Undue official influence on trials and juries
    Nonrandom selection of jury panels, exclusion of those opposed to the law, exclusion of the jury from hearing argument on the law, exclusion of private prosecutors from access to the grand jury, and prevention of parties and their counsels from making effective arguments or challenging the government.
    • Usurpation of undelegated powers
    This is usually done with popular support for solving some problem, or to redistribute wealth to the advantage of the supporters of the dominant faction, but it soon leads to the deprivation of rights of minorities and individuals.
    • Seeking a government monopoly on the capability and use of armed force
    The first signs are efforts to register or restrict the possession and use of firearms, initially under the guise of "protecting" the public, which, when it actually results in increased crime, provides a basis for further disarmament efforts affecting more people and more weapons.
    • Militarization of law enforcement
    Declaring a "war on crime" that becomes a war on civil liberties. Preparation of military forces for internal policing duties.
    • Infiltration and subversion of citizen groups that could be forces for reform
    Internal spying and surveillance is the beginning. A sign is false prosecutions of their leaders.
    • Suppression of investigators and whistleblowers
    When people who try to uncover high level wrongdoing are threatened, that is a sign the system is not only riddled with corruption, but that the corruption has passed the threshold into active tyranny.
    • Use of the law for competition suppression
    It begins with the dominant faction winning support by paying off their supporters and suppressing their supporters' competitors, but leads to public officials themselves engaging in illegal activities and using the law to suppress independent competitors. A good example of this is narcotics trafficking.
    • Subversion of internal checks and balances
    This involves the appointment to key positions of persons who can be controlled by their sponsors, and who are then induced to do illegal things. The worst way in which this occurs is in the appointment of judges that will go along with unconstitutional acts by the other branches.
    • Creation of a class of officials who are above the law
    This is indicated by dismissal of charges for wrongdoing against persons who are "following orders".
    • Increasing dependency of the people on government
    The classic approach to domination of the people is to first take everything they have away from them, then make them compliant with the demands of the rulers to get anything back again.
    • Increasing public ignorance of their civic duties and reluctance to perform them
    When the people avoid doing things like voting and serving in militias and juries, tyranny is not far behind.
    • Use of staged events to produce popular support
    Acts of terrorism, blamed on political opponents, followed immediately with well-prepared proposals for increased powers and budgets for suppressive agencies. Sometimes called a Reichstag plot.
    • Conversion of rights into privileges
    Requiring licenses and permits for doing things that the government does not have the delegated power to restrict, except by due process in which the burden of proof is on the petitioner.
    • Political correctness
    Many if not most people are susceptible to being recruited to engage in repressive actions against disfavored views or behaviors, and led to pave the way for the dominance of tyrannical government.

    As you can see, it is ALREADY HAPPENING, yet so many Americans fail to recognize this and go on in their delusional fantasy of being "free".

    When you attempt to educate the modern progressive swine on the realities of American government, rather than use fact, they resort to emotional response derived from their personal belief,s not evidence.  In any discussion on the second amendment involving self defense against the government and tyranny, the clueless modern lib resorts to misleading claims that people have no chance against the government, because "they have tanks, planes, etc" and they cling to the false notion that our own Armed Forces would beat us to a pulp, which is far from the truth, because the majority of active duty soldiers and veterans are on the side of WE THE PEOPLE and would NOT take up arms against the American people.

    Without a large enough military capability against any potential insurgency, the government would resort to using law enforcement officers and foreign armies, most likely to include United Nations "peacekeeping" forces, however, what these brainwashed sheep fail to recall when they believe the people can't fight the government is the fact that modern armies are trained in fighting other organized and trained military, not common people defending their homeland, as proven time and time again in conflicts like Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Syria, etc..  Citizens most certainly CAN fight the government, even win.. 

    Fighting a determined people safeguarding their own liberty is an entirely different metric and the government is at a severe disadvantage. When one looks at the world today, it becomes crystal clear that we the American people have the upper hand.   Americans are far more armed than any army in the world and in comparison would dwarf that of any past insurgency in history..... Americans are the largest body of well armed people on earth, so..... COME AND TAKE THEM!!!!!!!

    Majority of Americans OPPOSE Gun Control & Gun Bans

    Contrary to what's being reported by the biased mainstream media outlets, particularly the Associated Press, fact is, the majority of Americans are OPPOSED to gun control laws and bans on so called assault weapons as show by the results of a poll by Newsmax.

    An overwhelming 77% of Americans say the federal government should NOT regulate guns of ANY type.
    83% of Americans say congress should NOT ban semi-automatic weapons.
    86% of Americans say President Obama should NOT use power of executive order for gun control.
    87% of Americans agree that the second amendment gives the INDIVIDUAL the right to keep and bare arms WITHOUT INFRINGEMENT.

    Will You Revolt if the US Government Passes an "Assault Weapons" Ban?

    Will 1776 Commence Again If They Try to Take Our Firearms? 

    Molon Labe - Come and Take Them
     The gun grabbers are creaming in their jeans over the opportunistic moment provided to them by the tragedy of Sandy Hook.

     They're using the emotions of the dumbed down American sheep, with full support from the anti-American progressives and the support of foreigners and non-Americans alike to ram unconstitutional gun bans down our throats.

    These scum do not care about the US Constitution, and will do whatever it takes to disarm the American people. There's the old adage, made infamous by Charlton Heston, "..From my cold dead hands" and many angry gun owners are reciting this very quote, as well as alluding to putting up a fight if necessary, so, I ask you this, just how many of you actually would, or will, actually fight, and I don't mean that rhetorically or metaphorically, but as in armed revolt.

     InfoWars.com radio host Alex Jones this past Monday evening, during an appearance on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, vehemently stated "1776 Will Commence Again If You Try To Take Our Firearms", so, I ask you... Will you resist, or are people like Alex Jones and other gun owners talking out of their asses? Please answer honestly using this anonymous poll & feel free to comment.

    Her Name is Jyoti Singh Pandey

    Grieving Father Wants The World to Know Her Name 

    Her name is Jyoti Singh Pandey.  She was a beautiful young woman who had a wonderful life to look forward to with bright future ahead of her, that is until she was tragically beaten and gang raped and then then thrown off a moving bus in Delhi, India on Dec.16, 2012.  The rape resulted in her death in a Singapore hospital on Dec. 29th, 2012.

    Her name is Jyoti Singh Pandey and her grieving father, Badri Singh, wants the world to know her name.
    
Her name is Jyoti Singh Pandey

    What happened to Jyoti Singh Pandey is beyond horrific and she is not alone.    Every day, women all over the world are being raped, and still the world's legal systems, authorities and media are advocating the old adage of "don't get raped" and continuing with their failed policies of victim blaming instead of spreading awareness and teaching "DON'T RAPE".

     I can not even imagine the unbearable pain and suffering Badri & Asha Singh are going through right now and my heart and prayers go out to them.  As a parent of three wonderful and beautiful daughters, this rape culture is frightening to think about.  I don't know what I would do if any of my daughters were ever raped, and pray that it never happens, but I do know that I would probably not be as strong as Badri Singh, because I would probably end up killing my daughter's rapist if it ever happened.   Badri Singh, during an interview with media said  “We want the world to know her real name.....", “My daughter didn’t do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself.", “I am proud of her. Revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks. They will find strength from my daughter.”

    Because I am a parent, I know all too well how much Badri & Asha love their daughter and I am sorry for their tragic loss, because it is so heart breaking.   Reading various articles on the tragic rape of Jyoti Singh Pandey, I ended up reading various other recent rape cases and I am sickened over the world's rape culture with victim blaming.  Our daughters, our mothers, our sisters, our wives, our girlfriends, our friends, even our grandmothers, are all at risk of being raped on any given day within their lifetime and as a society, as people, we need to do whatever it takes to end this cycle of sexual violence.

    Although rape is predominately committed against girls and women, boys and men are also raped, although not as frequently, nevertheless, something needs to be done to end rape.  It is UNACCEPTABLE that any woman, man or child should EVER suffer the extreme violation of rape.

    It is sickening and disgusting to see when countries such as Swaziland enact laws blaming the victim instead of passing legislation for harsher penalties for rapists.  Just a couple weeks ago the Swaziland government banned mini skirts, revealing tops and low rise jeans, stating that they provoke rape, and women face arrest if breaking this law.  This is sickening and is just one of many cases of victim blaming.   I don't know about you, but I love mini skirts and seeing beautiful women in a mini skirt, or in any other revealing clothing for that matter, has not once EVER caused me to rape.   Not once, EVER, have I been provoked into committing the heinous and despicable, inhumane crime of rape.    As a transsexual woman, I also love to wear mini skirts, because I think they're cute and I just love the style and look, etc, and I'm fortunate that it's not ever provoked anyone into raping me, however, I am also aware of the risk, among various other risks, therefore I carry a concealed handgun and will not hesitate in putting a bullet between the eyes of anyone attempting to commit any crime of violence against me.

    Speaking of carrying guns for self protection, as a result of Jyoti Singh Pandey's rape, and India's history of having a rape epidemic, thousands of women across India have sought out licenses and the means to legally own, possess and carry a firearm for self protection.    As a diehard, pro second amendment, pro gun libertarian, I wholeheartedly encourage and advocate for concealed carry for self protection, and am all to well aware of the fact that women carrying guns do not get raped, because rapists want unarmed, defenseless victims.  A gun pointed at, even shooting a rapist, is a rapist's biggest disappointment.  No wonder former President Bill Clinton approves of anti gun legislation and further unnecessary restrictions on lawful gun ownership.   I'm aware that advocating concealed carry as means of not getting raped is an oxymoron to "don't rape", however, I still encourage people to do so, because carrying a gun for self protection is a good idea for stopping crime and violence in general.

    There's just far too many rape incidents currently circulating in the world's various media formats to cover everything, including the cycle of victim blaming, but, it needs to change, and my own opinion is that we, as people, from all over the world, need to send the message, "DON'T RAPE", and we must pass legislation to make the punishment nothing less than DEATH.

    I fully support the death penalty for the crime of rape and sexual violence, as well as death for crimes of sexual assault against children.  What do you think?  Should rapists get the death penalty?  Leave a comment below.

    Guns Across America: Nationwide Pro Gun Protest to Preserve the Second Amendment

    Guns Across America: Nationwide Pro Gun Protest to Preserve the Second Amendment, Jan 19, 2013.

    Gun Control = More Crime, a Facebook Community Page, has organized a nationwide, peaceful protest and demonstration against any and all further gun control legislation, called "Guns Across America", to take place at each of the fifty states capitol buildings at "high noon" on January 19th, just three days prior to Senator Dianne Feinstein's tentative date of introducing one America's most unconstitutional, anti gun legislation in US history which calls for banning entire classes of firearms and creates unnecessary barriers for law abiding citizens to exercise their second amendment rights.

    It is very important that ALL pro gun Americans attend as our second amendment right is fundamental to protecting all other rights and preserving our liberty.

    Please mark your calender and clear your schedule in order to attend.  The more people that attend, the bigger the impact, as we need to send a clear message to those in Congress and Senate that WE THE PEOPLE will not be SUBJECT to unconstitutional legislation, nor restricted in our freedom, liberty and inalienable rights.

    To stay informed and be updated on the progress and news regarding the planned protest, join Guns Across America on Facebook, and click attending and also like the Gun Control = More Crime Facebook Page.  I'd also appreciate it if you also like my own Facebook Page, Morte ad Tyranni.

    Guns Across America

    "Guns Across America" is going to take place Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 at "high noon." This is going to be a peaceful picketing protest against ANY, AND ALL future gun legislation. This is our chance to reach out to our elected officials, and tell them NO NEW GUN LAWS! "Guns Across America" is being tailored to happen in every states capital city, at their capital building.

    Protesting alone will not be enough to get our message across to members of Congress and Senate.  Please take the time to call or write your elected representatives and tell them, "NO MORE GUN CONTROL LAWS... PERIOD!!"

    Mainstream Media Silent On San Antonio Theater Shooting

    Mainstream Media Silent On San Antonio Theater Shooting

    On December 17, 2012, days after the shooting massacre in Newtown, CT, a lone gunman intent on a shooting spree ended with the suspect wounding two at the Santikos Mayan Palace 14 movie theater  before being shot by an off-duty deputy. (source)

    The moment news reporting of the Sandy Hook shootings began, the demands for gun bans, gun confiscations and more restrictive gun control laws began to sweep the nation like wildfire, all without any educated thought, solely out of emotion over the loss of innocent children. 

     It is of no surprise whatsoever that scum like Piers Morgan, Dianne Feinstein and Mayor Bloomberg were ejaculating with joy over the news of this horrific event, because it was the answer to their prayers to further their anti-gun agenda. 

    To counter the uneducated modern liberals on their bogus claims, pro second amendment and pro gun groups argued that gun free zones like schools & movie theaters are targets of those bent on shooting sprees because the criminals know that their potential victims are unarmed.  They continued to argue that had a teacher been armed at any of the past school shootings, or a movie goer armed during the Aurora, Colorado shooting, that lives would have been saved had just one armed person been able to take out the shooter, and the truth is, they are 100% right.

    As right as the pro gun spokespersons are, the lefts mouthpieces just continued to ignore truth, fact & logic, and instead resorted to character assassinations, personal attacks, lies and distortion of statistics, intentionally twisting the data to conform to their own ideology.   Take Piers Morgan for example, a scumbag from Britain, a police state with the world's strictest gun laws where the majority of guns are essentially banned and private firearms ownership is excessively prohibitive.  While this anti American, fifth columnist scum Piers Morgan jizzed with joy over Sandy Hook, he assaulted America with his anti-gun trash, boasting of his beloved UK and how gun homicides are among the lowest in the world, thanks to anti-gun legislation.

    The truth of the matter though, is that Britain is the most violent nation in the world, with the HIGHEST NUMBER OF VIOLENT CRIMES, so, regardless that they have among the lowest of gun related deaths, it is IRRELEVANT, because the TOOL USED is not the problem.  This simply proves that without guns, criminals will just use another TOOL, and as a result, because of gun control, people are unable to defend themselves, and violent crime goes UP, just like it did in Australia, Austria and anywhere else.

    On the contrary, in Switzerland, where private gun ownership is the highest in the world, and Kennesaw, Georgia, where it's required that all households maintain a firearm, violent crime of any kind is virtually non existent.

    So, with the mainstream media in the government's pocket, and supportive of anti-gun legislation, there was, with only a couple exceptions, no reporting whatsoever of the shooting in San Antonio, because it would show to the American people, and the world, that the pro gun movement are CORRECT, and the powers that be do not want that to happen. 

    Looking in Google News results, there appears to only be FOUR reports of the incident.  The mainstream media is tight lipped about this, and with good reason, because it puts a very big hole in the lefts anti-gun argument, and proves once again that the pro gun, pro second amendment groups are RIGHT.

    History and Statistics Prove Gun Bans and Gun Control are Dangerous

    History and Statistics Prove That Gun Bans and Gun Control Legislation are Dangerous to Freedom & Liberty.


    What happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on the morning of December 14 is tragic.   I can not imagine the overwhelming pain and sense of loss felt by the parents, friends, family members & loved ones of those who lost their lives.

      Had I my self been one of them, I don't know what I would do, but I certainly would be devastated and in deep anguish, however, my emotions would never be enough to convince me that more restrictions on gun ownership, further gun control measures and gun bans are the answer to preventing such tragedies as this from ever happening again.

      It is pitiful that those on the left thinking side of the political spectrum are using this horrific event to advance their anti-gun agenda to disarm the American people.  From modern liberal Americans, to foreign anti-Americans, to media scum and celebrity trash and traitorous politicians, they're all screaming for gun bans and more gun control laws, and it is SICKENING, because their calls are exactly what the powers that be have wanted all along.

    Problem - Reaction - Solution.

      The Newtown shooting is these scumbags wet dream, and their jizzing in their pants in glory over this, because it gives them exactly what they have wanted for quite some time, particularly that scumbag traitor, Senator Dianne Feinstein, who has had a hard on for banning guns her entire treasonous political career.

      I find it extremely ironic that these modern liberals, the sort that often cry about their self claimed right to murder their own unborn children, can cry about murdered children and use it as another tool for preaching their anti-gun squabble.

      I find it very problematic that these modern liberal swine, the kind that piss and moan about gay marriage and other social causes they deem their right, can actually piss and moan about their rights, yet simultaneously demand the rights of others be taken away.

      The second amendment is not about hunting, nor sporting or recreation, but a profound and inalienable right, of we the people to defend ourselves against enemies, both foreign and domestic, to protect our freedom and liberty, against any government or standing armies who would attempt to over power us with tyrannical goals.    Modern liberals and many other people have very short memories, and forget history, that in EVERY INSTANCE of tyranny, that the people were disarmed before it happened.  WWII Germany is just ONE example of such.  Prior to the holocaust, Hitler enacted gun control laws, which enabled him and those in power to commit atrocities against the Jewish people and others in Germany.   This is just one example of MANY, yet, these clueless vermin hold the idea that our government would not or could not ever do no such thing even when all the signs are there to confirm and validate the thought that, YES IT CAN happen.

      These united states of America are virtually under near complete and total surveillance, much like the police state of the United Kingdom, so much so that it makes the former German Democratic Republic look like Utopia and is already far worse than the Ministerium für Staatssicherheit ever was.   Our Department of Homeland Security, with its various multitude of subsidiaries that include the Transportation Security Administration, are horrifically similar to, perhaps even more dangerous than Hitler's Geheime Staatspolizei.

    Hitler had the Reichstag fire which gave him the Enabling Act of 1933.  Eerily similar, if not nearly identical "coincidence", we the people of these united states had September 11, 2001, followed by the Patriot Act..  So, the very idea of "trusting" our government to not ever become one of tyranny is troubling.   If history teaches us anything, it is to NEVER trust governments nor those in power.   It is solely the second amendment that gives us, the people, the power, to ensure that our government can never oppress us.

    Gun control laws are NOT to protect citizens, nor to prevent crime or save lives, but to protect those in power.  Gun control is a measure of governments and those in power seeking to RULE OVER subjects with ABSOLUTE POWER.   Our government is not one of absolute power, because it is WE THE PEOPLE who had the power, and little by little, our government has been stripping away our freedoms and liberties, giving themselves more authority and power, and when they come for the guns, rest assured that every last bit of freedom thereafter CAN be taken away.

    Before you agree with, or support more gun control and gun bans, THINK TWICE about it, because it is potentially with DIRE CONSEQUENCES.

    Uneducated morons like Piers Morgan, Michael Moore & Dianne Feinstein believe that a ban on "assault weapons" would prevent tragedies like the Sandy Hook Massacre from ever happening again, however, what they fail to realize is, similar events in the past, notably the shooting massacre at Columbine High, still occurred even though there was an assault weapons ban in effect at the time.  Matter of fact, there were FAR MORE INCIDENTS during said ban.

    The FBI statistics on crime show that less than a fraction of a percent of violent crimes are committed with "assault weapons".

    The usual road to slavery is that first they take away your guns, then they take away your property, then last of all they tell you to shut up and say you are enjoying it. – James A. Donald

    When they took the 4th Amendment, I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs.
    When they took the 6th Amendment, I was quiet because I am innocent.

    Armed people are free. No state can control those who have the machinery and the will to resist, no mob can take their liberty and property. And no 220-pound thug can threaten the well-being or dignity of a 110-pound woman who has two pounds of iron to even things out … People who object to weapons aren't abolishing violence, they're begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men were always automatically right. Guns ended that, and a social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work. – L. Neil Smith (from The Probability Broach)

    The police can't stop an intruder, mugger, or stalker from hurting you. They can pursue him only after he has hurt or killed you. Protecting yourself from harm is your responsibility, and you are far less likely to be hurt in a neighborhood of gun owners than in one of disarmed citizens – even if you don't own a gun yourself. – Harry Browne

    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

    Before I end this post, I would also like to add that any bans on high capacity magazines will NOT reduce violent crime, because one, statistics show that high cap mags are rarely ever used in crimes, and two, the difference between a high capacity magazine and a standard 10 round magazine is less than 1/2 a second to reload another magazine.

    Finally, in closing, I'd like to share these truths and facts on guns and crime, from the FBI & Cato Institute.
    The Honest Truth About Guns
    From the Bastiat Institute;

    To see a policy based entirely on emotion, look at the now defunct "assault weapons" ban. What makes a weapon an "assault weapon" vs. a rifle? Often cosmetic irrelevancies, like a pistol grip or a bayonet!

    So let's get practical. What would actually minimize tragedies like the one in Newtown?

    1. Allow teachers with concealed carry permits to carry those weapons when in school, just as they are allowed to carry everywhere else. This way, a potential attacker will have no idea what kind of resistance he will face.

    2. As a suggestion, but not a requirement: recommend that schools have a few guns locked in handprint safes. These can only be opened with fingerprint matching, so no one but the correct teacher/administrator/security guard can access them.

    3. As another suggestion (thanks to Alex Wood): Just as planes started locking their cockpits after 9/11, schools may consider locking their doors. This is currently done in Nashville.

    Remember the last big policy passed based on an emotional response to a tragedy? It gave us the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, two wars that have lasted over 10 years, trillions spent, and tens of thousands of lives lost. Let's not do that again.
