What if the administrator does not want to have "ability to engage in shootout to protect lives" in their job description? Seems well above my pay grade, anyway.


We need to arm the cashiers at Safeway so they can protect the customers.

Armed drones in every classroom, patrolling every hallway, every aisle in Safeway. An overwhelming fire power response at the first sign of "trouble." If it works on the "battlefield" it should be good enough to protect our kids. Ideally, every student would have their own personal protective drones. The more drones we have the safer we will be.

Re: Today's carry package:
Laws of any kind only effect what law abiding people do. Lawless people don't care what the law is.

Yep, that's why we don't even bother with laws against murder. Lawless people don't care that murder is against the law.

Laws are not just about preventing crimes, they also allow law breakers to be held accountable for their behavior by society when they are caught.

You guys always whine that if a proposal does not solve every problem it cannot solve any problems. Well, Fuck you!

Re: Today's carry package:
The government says we can't control what a person does in their bedroom

Actually, The People told the government, before the Supreme Court, that laws prohibiting certain sexual behavior between consenting adults in their own bedrooms were unconstitutional and The People won.
