  1. Carrying concealed and registering guns are two different subjects. Only Frank can turn them into the same thing. Are you a Frank Joey?
  2. One woman, one single woman, defending the 2nd amendment and the NRA against a stage and audience packed with people that just went through a horrendous ordeal by a crazy man and you snowflakes expect something meaningful to happen?
  3. ?????? Posted 7 hours ago · Report post is it a good idea or not ? what happens when one kills a kid in the cross-fire or a kid with a toy gun gets shot by his teacher ? - full immunity ? and 99% of teachers are Liberals and Union members. are you happy about creating a highly trained armed force of 3.4 million Liberals ? thoughts ?
  4. Please show me where I said anything that fits your question so I know what you're talking about.
  5. For the same reason most people should NOT be doctors, most people should NOT be lawyers, most people should NOT be butchers, most people should NOT be book keepers, most people should not be dentists, most people should not be police officers.......AND if you're too fuc ken stupid to know what that reason is you deserve being a liberal.
  6. Most teachers should NOT be armed, probably by a large percentage. Teachers that have a CCL already have some firearms training and some experience with the firearm they presently carry. They don't walk the streets/neighborhood/malls waving their guns at every corner, why do idiots think that's going to happen in a class room? Most teachers love their kids and will do anything to protect them, if chit hits the fan and some whacko starts shooting, I'd rather see them protect their kids with a gun if they so choose than a Dr. Zeuss book. When the seconds count and the cavalry are minutes away, how many are going to die waiting for the cavalry to arrive?
  7. You have met one conservative teacher in your whole life and that enables you to claim 99% of teachers are Liberals.
  8. In 2012 Wayne LaPierre said after the Sandy Hook shootings that schools should have armed guards and armed teachers, Liberals considered him nuts. Today many states now have armed teachers and more soon will. http://amsterdamnews.com/news/2012/dec/28/nra-says-arming-teachers-is-the-answer/ NRA says arming teachers is the answer CYRIL JOSH BARKER Amsterdam News Staff | 12/28/2012, 10:35 a.m. NRA says arming teachers is the answer When National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre finally broke the group's silence after the Sandy Hook School massacre that left 20 first-graders dead, he not only blamed the media and violent videos games for such shootings but also suggested more armed officers in the nation's schools. LaPierre's statements have received mixed reactions and spurred a national conversation about armed security in schools, arming teachers and finding other ways to protect the nation's children. "You know, five years ago after the Virginia Tech tragedy, when I said we should put armed security in every school, the media called me crazy," LaPierre said. "But what if--what if when Adam Lanza started shooting his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School, he'd been confronted by qualified armed security? Will you at least admit it's possible that 26 little kids, that 26 innocent lives might have been spared that day?" LaPierre added that every school in America should have one armed police officer to prevent another incident like Sandy Hook from happening. He also said the NRA was willing to train them and was quoted as saying that the only way to eliminate a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun. The very idea of arming teachers and principals with guns provoked a strong backlash. American Federation of Teacher's President Randi Weingarten said the idea was "irresponsible" and "dangerous." "No matter how much money the NRA spends or propaganda it tries to spread, one thing is clear: The NRA is not serious about confronting the epidemic of gun violence in our nation," she said. "Schools must be safe sanctuaries, not armed fortresses. Anyone who would suggest otherwise doesn't understand that our public schools must first and foremost be places where teachers can safely educate and nurture our students." Locally, officials rejected the idea of having armed police in schools. New York City public schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott voiced his outrage over the concept, saying that while a safe learning environment is top priority for students, the NRA is wrong. "Putting an armed guard in every school building is not the answer. Our schools are safer today than they've been in more than a decade thanks to our collaboration with the NYPD, reforms to our discipline code to promote safety, anti-bullying and peer mediation programs, and work to remove illegal guns from the streets," he said. New York State Education Commissioner John King also slammed the NRA, instead proposing that common-sense gun control and a better response to the mental health needs of citizens. While some school districts across the nation already have armed security, critics say having armed teachers is not the answer. The shortcomings of this strategy were demonstrated in 1999 during the Columbine High School massacre, where 12 students were killed by two gunmen. The school had an armed officer on the premises. There are 5,000 safety agents in public schools, but most do not carry weapons. However, some safety agents are supplemented with armed police officers. "It is inevitable. If we are going to protect the citizens of this country, the only way to do it is gun control," said Melissa Avery, principal of P.S. 273 in East New York, Brooklyn. "Do you know how much money it would cost this country to equip every school with a police officer with a gun? Do you know how much anxiety having police with guns in schools will cause young students? It's absurd. We need more computers and intervention staff in schools, not more officers with guns."
  9. I can't believe you said that Joey. Until the day comes that every good guy AND every bad guy hands in all their guns they will NEVER shut up.
  10. Driving a car on state/city/town roads is not a "right" granted to all USA citizens by the constitution. The "right" to keep and bear arms without infringement IS granted to all USA citizens by the second amendment of the Constitution. Comparing the two is apples and oranges.
  11. If you have a car, boat, or trailer that is NOT registered they CAN leave your property legally. You just can't drive a car or tow a trailer on a public road or opereate a motorized boat on waters that don't belong to you. I am against all forms of firearms registration. History has proven itself, first registration, then confiscation.
  12. NO YOU DO NOT have to register your car, boat, or trailer. If they are on your property they don't have to be registered.
  13. This was posted in the PG What the left doesn't realize and the media does its best to hide is that the NRA is predominantly funded by and represents the people - not the big bad gun companies. Every time they say terrible things about the NRA, they're really saying them about us "deplorables" "Don't care about the children", "blood on your hands", killers and murderers", I'm starting to take serious offense at these slanders. And they wonder why no one from the right wants to debate policy with them. From an article by CNN (of all places): A CNNMoney analysis of federal campaign finance records shows that much of this money comes from everyday Americans. And these contributions, which the NRA uses to keep pro-gun lawmakers in office, are on the rise. Some political funding comes from big corporations, many within the gun industry, which donate millions to the NRA. But companies are barred from donating to the NRA’s political action committee, which the agency uses to fill campaign coffers, run ads and send out mailers for and against candidates. That’s where individual donations come in. Since 2005, the NRA Political Victory Fund has received nearly $85 million in contributions from individual donors. After the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting, donations to this political action committee surged as gun owners worried that their rights to buy and own guns were at risk. Contributions came from nearly 30,000 donors, with around 90% of donations made by people who gave less than $200 in a single year. According to the NRA, the average donation is around $35. The NRA's ability to raise so much money from small donations is highly unusual for a special interest group, demonstrating its wide reaching support, said Sarah Bryner, research director at the Center for Responsive Politics. Only one person has donated even close to the maximum amount allowed by federal law, which is $5,000 per year: a computer programmer from Houston. "Congress isn't necessarily listening to the NRA, they’re listening to our members," said Baker. "They know our members support the Second Amendment and vote and give money."
