Guns in Schools Bill in Harrisburg is Coming
#1
A sign that the gun debate has turned into the abortion debate:

Awesome. The only thing is that although these things WILL end up stopping crime, we'll only hear about the ones that don't turn out well and we won't hear about the success cases.

I'm sure that we will hear of them. Being as well-informed and diligent as we are. I don't think, however, that the general low-information citizen will hear of them. Just ask anyone what happened in China on the same day as the Conn. school shooting.

I'm on Tapatalk so it's a bit much to follow the cut and page rules of the forum but I managed to figure it out:

Mayor Nutter may think the NRA's suggestion of bringing more guns into schools is a "dumbass" notion, but that might not stop the idea from gaining traction in Harrisburg. Newly elected state Rep. Gregory Lucas (R- Crawford and Erie counties) has circulated a memorandum detailing his plans to clear the way for teachers and other trained school staffers to carry guns in school.

I've had PA senators and reps write to me and a few actually indicated that they read my letter.


Then they priced to tout an AR ban or from the other side, guns in schools like this dude. No middle of the road sensible policy on gun violence. Just the extremes.

Fuck Harrisburg.

"In the document, he explains, "As a new legislator from Northwestern Pennsylvania, I believe I bring a unique perspective to questions about these shootings. My home town, Edinboro, saw something similar back in 1998. A student brought a gun to a school dance. Three people were shot. One of them, a friend of mine, died of his wounds. What prevented more deaths on this horrible occasion? An armed private citizen who, using his own gun, stopped the shooter."


Seriously, an armed private citizen stopped a shooting at a school dance? I've never heard of this story before. This is the type of thing we need to get out to the public. That a representative is telling the story is even better.

If anyone wants a link to the story, here is one.

Of course everyone knows about Columbine which occurred almost exactly one year later, but seriously, who knew about this one?
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.
