How many mass murders have been at Gun-Free Zones compared to, say, gun shows where there are thousands?

We’re loudly and repeatedly offered “solutions” to schoolhouse shootings, yet all tapdance around the one answer that would actually work, while costing the taxpayer nothing...

And just by coincidence, the people pushing their pet “solutions” the loudest are also the best protected...Their pet solutions always seem to center around the disarming of the rest of us while they, the elite, will continue to have their security and armed bodyguards...

America is already enjoying the benefits of widespread shall issue concealed carry for citizens in reduced crime rates (look up the stats...Yes, REDUCED!), but schools remain one place a trained, motivated and armed citizen may not carry his or her weapon...

We insist on keeping schools “Gun Free” aka free fire zones for deranged killers set loose upon us by misguided and failed human rights, psychiatric and mental health professionals...

The one thing we can do to fight back and reduce these killings (because we can never prevent or end this kind of mindless violence as long as the would be perp has the advantage of knowing where and when he plans to strike) is to allow any parent, teacher, administrator, coach or custodian who wishes and has passed the training and background to carry concealed in the school...

Has anyone noticed that the frequency and death tolls from school shootings has increased sharply since the 1995 Gun Free Schools Act?

Coincidence? I think not...Hold your elected representatives responsible and demand the one action that will work...

Also, demand they honor their oath of office, and support and defend the 2nd Amendment as they would the 1st, 4th, 5th, etc...

Los Angeles has a school police department. Also most colleges in the County has a likewise police department.

You have posted that link to a $47 software product over twenty times now on FR.
Are you getting a kickback from hawking it?
Is Free Republic getting a cut of that action?

I wrote it. I’m sure it’s on FR’s radar and they can mail me if they have a problem with it. Don’t like it, don’t look at it.

Mr. Lott, is this Gannett's version of a mea culpa?

I have to wonder if USA Today gave you access for an opposing view due to another Gannett affiliate, The Journal News, recently disclosing the names and addresses of lawful handgun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties in NY, i.e. the owners were licensed and the handguns were registered for simple possession, not concealed carry.

Gannett's Journal-News in New York Defends Publishing Gun Permit Holders' Names and Addresses

Happy New Year!

Stop posting your advertising in every post.

We just spent 45 minutes removing them. (Mods are unpaid volunteers)

Also remove your tagline.

And stop gloating about managing to link your advertising by sneaking under the radar.

You've been here long enough to know the rules.

Click on This Link if you wish to make amends.

95% of your profits seems fair.

Thanks for complying with the directives.

We weren’t “charging” you anything.

And we don’t run ads here to pay the bills.

My apologies. Guess I was ticked that my remark about the radar was considered gloating when in actuality it was a matter of assuming that FR knew everything that was going on on their server and was able to stop me whenever they wished with a simple mail.
