A press release from gun-rights group Rocky Mountain Gun Owners announces that last night it gave a firearms class to 300 teachers in Colorado. There was no cost for admission.
"Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, Colorado's largest grassroots gun rights organization, provided a free firearms training course for 300 Colorado teachers," the group says.
"The 300 men and women braved snow and inclement weather to attend the four hour course focusing on firearms safety and handling, and Colorado gun laws."
In a statement, the executive director of the group, Dudley Brown, says, "Colorado teachers have been beating down our doors to receive firearms training. ... They don't want their students to be a victim of the next Adam Lanza. They came here for training tonight because they want the next Adam Lanza to face the barrel of a .45."
According to the group, the "class coincided with the introduction of Colorado Senate Bill 9, the Colorado Teacher Carry Bill, which would give school boards the ability to allow teachers to carry a firearm as long as they have a Concealed Weapons Permit."
No one but idiot liberals want to be unarmed victims.
The PEOPLE actually showing the FEDS what we want...and what we will do to protect ourselves, and our families..
Sadly the Dimwitts shot down the Senate Bill in a 3-2 vote.
Something else I could have brought up yesterday to voice support at the state capital for armed teachers:
“If you don’t pass this bill, there might be a possibility that some teachers, scared for their lives and kids, will ignore it and carry anyway.”
The communists in Big Government and Big Media want us to helplessly die a coward's death, cringing before them.
We want a fighting chance.
Can you post anything on that, “Sadly” No it's a damn shame it did not pass.
What would a teacher do if her classroom was suddenly invaded by a hungry grizzly bear?
This is excellent! Just imagine... education professionals with genuine intellectual curiosity, able to make their own decisions to learn about an important subject.
This must frighten the pants of the union leaders and leftist drones.
Sorry I’m so despondent about the sheer stupidity of our elected officials here and at the federal level that I’m tired of using the stronger language.
