Sue them into bankruptcy... they don’t need streets, sewer treatment or drinking water. They damn sure do not need police protection... being all safe and such!
So some podunk retards are busy letting the voters know that they are bored and have now resorted to publicly stunts?
Why not pass some “resolutions” asking to be let out of the whole Constitution too?
First, these "events" are not natural disasters to be dealt with; and they don't really have "magnitude" in the sense that word was used here. The suggestion is that, like a hurricane, this shooting was a higher danger than some other, but all these events have a similar chance of destruction.
There was nothing particularly unique about the weapons in the latest shooting, compared to the other shootings this year. This guy just happened to find a more compliant set of victims, and a better circumstance under which to act, so he was able to kill more people than the mall shooter, or the theater shooter.
The big difference in those three shootings? In the mall and the theater, people were allowed to do what they do when they hear shots -- they ran away.
IN the school, the kids were not allowed to run away. Instead, the were herded into their classrooms, and held for the shooter to access. From preliminary reports, the only reason more kids weren't dead is that at least one teacher violated the lockdown rule and sent her kids to hide somewhere else.
I would note that the number of deaths in the twin towers on 9/11/2001 also seems to have been increased because of the official policy of telling people to stay put while the government handled the situation. Many people who ran escaped, many who followed the direction of the authorities stayed and waited for rescue that never came.
“...asks for an exception to the state law”
...I’ve been to Burlington many times. It’s made up of the biggest group of hairy legged, Birkenstock wearing, stinky assed, left wing lunatics you’ve ever seen. They won’t “ask” for anything. Brown shirts will tattle on gun owners who will then get their car tires slashed, windows egged and/or broken etc. It’s how “Utopia” works.
Do they really have a law in that state where strangers are allowed onto school property with rifles strapped to their backs?
Of course, in many states the "gun-free-school" policy would prevent that. Until recently, I thought that policy was a federal dictate, but apparently some states have resisted.
I would be OK with a rule that only people with a purpose to be in a school be allowed on the property.
I’d bet my next paycheck that these city council members have an armed cop at council meetings.
It’s time to strip all politicians of taxpayer-funded protection. Let’s vote on that.
If they ban them, does that mean the police can’t have them?
What will they do if a person walks up to a school with a banned AK-47?
“Hey! You can’t have that!”
