In a lot of states all it takes is permission from the administration of the school.

Let start seeing administrators start giving permission.

The problem with schools being gun free is that teachers are getting shot, too.....and this shows they are wising up.

They're now saying to themselves....The government is asking ME to be a martyr for some anti-gun "stupids".

Claim seeks $100 million for child survivor of Connecticut school shooting
By Mary Ellen Godin | Reuters – 12 hrs ago

MERIDEN, Connecticut (Reuters) - A $100 million claim on behalf of a 6-year-old survivor is the first legal action to come out of the Connecticut school shooting that left 26 children and adults dead two weeks ago.

The unidentified client, referred to as Jill Doe, heard “cursing, screaming, and shooting” over the school intercom when the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, opened fire, according to the claim filed by New Haven-based attorney Irv Pinsky.

“As a consequence, the ... child has sustained emotional and psychological trauma and injury, the nature and extent of which are yet to be determined,” the claim said.

Pinsky said he filed a claim on Thursday with state Claims Commissioner J. Paul Vance Jr., whose office must give permission before a lawsuit can be filed against the state.

“We all know its going to happen again,” Pinsky said on Friday. “Society has to take action.”

Twenty children and six adults were shot dead on December 14 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The children were all 6 and 7 years old.

Pinsky’s claim said that the state Board of Education, Department of Education and Education Commissioner had failed to take appropriate steps to protect children from “foreseeable harm.”

It said they had failed to provide a “safe school setting” or design “an effective student safety emergency response plan and protocol.”

Definition alert!!!!

controversial = an idea liberals don't like

highly controversial = a popular idea liberals don't like

Nothing liberals, lefties, commies and statists support is ever deemed controversial.

Here’s Why Someone Would Need To Own An ‘Assault’ Rifle

Posted 12/28/2012 06:57 PM ET

Guns: The left keeps asking why anyone needs an “assault” rifle. Here’s one reason — in 2010, a Texas teen used a rifle similar to the one used in Newtown to defend his younger sister and himself from home invaders.

The left quite often exposes its raging elitism through its odious habit of asking why anyone would need the things that it doesn’t like, from guns to big homes to monster trucks.

The implication is that if the elitists don’t want whatever it is, then no one should be allowed to have it — except, of course, it’s fine for the elitists themselves to live in energy-sucking mansions, hire armed bodyguards and drive around in gas-guzzling limousines and SUVs.

When the left asks these questions it also reveals its blinding ignorance. Is there a single Democrat, dense celebrity or condescending journalist who is aware that “assault” rifles don’t just define their owners as red necks but also serve as practical protection?

The poor Brits need some alternative to the endless anti-gun drum beat they get from their media.

Also an alternative to the anti-capital punishment drum beat.
Also an alternative to the continual Europhile drum beat.
Also an alternative to the anti-Christian/Jewish and pro-homosexual/pro-Islamist drum beat.
