Firearms--in Schools?

The lefties are looking for a win, anywhere, on the firearms issue.  They don't really care where it is; it's like a small string in a sweater, once you start pulling it the whole sweater comes undone.  And let's face it, that's what they want.  They'll use Sandy Hook not because they think it's better or worse than any other firearms event, but because it's a string they can pull.

Don't let them get away with it.

Here are two articles on the subject of firearms:

Experts: Trained police needed for school security
An officer, he said, "is not just a hired gun. They have an office in the school. They are trained in crisis management, handling mass casualties and medical emergencies."
Gun Control Tramples On The Certain Virtues Of A Heavily Armed Citizenry
Hard cases make bad law, which is why they are reserved for the Constitution, not left to the caprice of legislatures, the sophistry and casuistry of judges or the despotic rule making of the chief executive and his bureaucracy.  And make no mistake, guns pose one of the hardest cases a free people confronts in the 21st century, a test of whether that people cherishes liberty above tyranny, values individual sovereignty above dependency on the state, and whether they dare any longer to live free.

A perfect example of this occurred in Old Town Sacramento on New Year's Eve. . . guy in crowded bar spills a drink on a woman, and apologizes. Thankfully, though, the woman's friend was armed, so he was able to shoot the spiller to death, as well as the bartender who tried to calm things down. Often, when someone bumps in to me on the street, or takes more than 10 items through the qquick check line, I have wished I were armed.
