I took our daughter to school Tuesday as I do most mornings. I parked in the same place I usually do, alongside a long line of other vehicles, and got out to begin our walk into a school we’ve grown to love. But something felt different. I didn’t feel safer knowing the person parked on either side might now legally be concealing a weapon in his or her car. I didn’t have the sense that our young daughter was better off because all around us in that parking lot there could be handguns legally hidden away in the surrounding cars. I actually shuddered to think that the click of a lock opening the car next to us might now mean there was a gun close at hand.
This is beautiful. Notice that his irrational fear is so profound that he failed to notice one very important thing while taking his daughter to school:
It is hilarious that we are the ones accused of being paranoid but they are the ones constantly bemoaning and literally having to cork up their exit chutes lest they soil themselves at the thought of a 5 or 6 century old technology being out there in the real world.
They have been wrong in every aspect they predicted. Concealed Carry? “ZOMG people are gonna shoot each other in the streets for nothing!” Restaurant Carry? “ZOMG people are gonna get drunk and shoot each other for nothing!” Stand Your Ground “ZOMG people are gonna shoot each other waiting in line at the movies!” (I never understood how they came up with that one) Guns in Parking Lots? “ZOMG disgruntled workers are gonna shoot each other and massacre everybody at work!” Each and every prediction has miserably failed but still they go out and repeat the narrative every time a state gets rid of some restriction.
I am guessing that these are the same people who used to call the well-known fraud Miss Cleo. Then again she was probably more on the money than these idiots.
