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.

  1. The Rev. Jay has a problem with “legal” firearms being taken onto School Grounds. Not a fear in the World about bad guys with illegal guns……. 🙁

    1. Just wait until a Beslan level school massacre occurs here. I predict that it will be a Gun Free Zone and police will try valiantly, but arrive too late.

      It sickens me that we have such twisted people out there, but recognize that the only viable response is to put them dowm like rabid vermin. I do not want to rely on unicorns and rainbows to protect our children.

    2. That’s because they WANT illegal guns to go to school. That would mean another school massacre, plenty of newsworthy shots of butchered children, and another bid to take away all legal guns.

    1. Yes, they would. They practically cackle with glee any time someone gets murdered by someone wielding an illegally-gotten firearm. It’s the legitimate self-defense situations they hate.

  2. And it never occurs to the parent : Those same fears about “who has a gun” might occur to a potential mass murderer too.
