  1. If the government body forces you to not be able to defend yourself, they thereby take over responsibility for doing so.

  2. Not sure about state and local governments, but in order to sue the Fed Govt, the Fed govt has to give you permission first.
    I believe the ‘Gun Free Zone’ school law is a Federal one.
    So rotsa ruck, but losing that suit sure would be a bitch slap for the gun grabbers, wouldn’t it?
    Maybe we could sue Uhbama for dereliction of duty, since one of his constitutional duties is to protect us.
    The thought makes me smile.

  4. Meanwhile, here in The Granola State – where Rambro is still not in anybody’s custody, free to shoot whoever he chooses to….

  5. The police took twenty minutes to respond in Newtown, and the school was just a little over two miles away. Compare that to the response time that is expected of fire departments from the National Fire Protection Association:
    Chapter 5 Fire Department Services

    5.2.4.1 Initial Arriving Company.
    5.2.4.1.1 The fire department’s fire suppression resources shall be deployed to provide for the arrival of an engine company within a 240-second travel time to 90 percent of the incidents as established in Chapter 4.
    5.2.4.1.2 Personnel assigned to the initial arriving company shall have the capability to implement an initial rapid intervention crew (IRIC).

    I think that a shooter in a school should be at least as important as a fire.

  6. ^^Yeah, but going into a hot shooting situation could be dangerous for unionized public employees. Better to let the perp use up his ammo first.

  7. ^ You’d think those of us prepared enough to defend ourselves and others would be more expendable.

  8. S2, it seems California, New York and New Jersey are playing a game of “That’s not gun control; THIS is gun control!”

    Or as the rest of us call it “Doubling down on stupid.”
