If every US citizen deserves a guard, then who guards the guards? Are we gonna have to hire more Mexicans for this?

An armed guard hired to protect a Michigan school in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting committed a “breach in security protocol” when he accidentally left his gun in a student restroom.

Clark Arnold, a retired Lapeer County Sheriff’s Department firearms instructor, was hired last week in reaction to the Newtown shooting.
[...]
Just a week into his tenure at the job, Young admitted to the Flint Journal that Arnold left an unloaded weapon in a restroom “for a few moments.”

“The school has put additional security procedures in place that follow local law enforcement practices and guidelines,” Young said in a statement. “At no time was any student involved in this breach of protocol. We will continue to work on improving school security.”

Young insisted that no children were exposed to the handgun, and declined to comment further on the incident.

Listening to local news, I heard that there were a couple bills being brought in front of lawmakers here in Michigan to make any Federal gun controls law invalid for guns and ammunition manufactured and sold inside Michigan.

Edit:
My high school had a uniformed police officer on campus who carried a gun. And that was 10-14 years ago.

We had one crazy kid my senior year. It happened to be right around the time of that Planetary alignment in 2002 (I think it was around May, right?). Rumor got around that he was planning on killing people during the alignment, which was right near graduation. He was obsessed with the "power" it would give him. School officials found out and they suspended the kid. I don't know what happened to him after that but I don't think he was present during graduation.

It must make you sad to know that the lawmakers in MI have no idea how our tiered legislative system works.

Okay, no worries, there's a solution for this: armed cyborgs. No longer will we let unchecked shitting endanger our children.

And hey, if you don't trust the artifical intelligence, it could just be controlled remotely. Imagine this: a predator drone patrolling the hallways. I feel safer already.

Kind of.

Michigan-made guns and ammo exempt from federal regulations bill.

Quote:
The Michigan firearms freedom act is similar to laws passed in eight states and introduced in several others, according to firearmsfreedomact.com.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has issued letters to states that have passed the laws, stating that federal law supersedes the state laws, and all provisions of the Gun Control Act and the National Firearms Act continue to apply.


And the other one is a reaction to the NY papers releasing registration lists:
Pistol Sales and Permit Records not subject to FOIA requests.


I did enjoy Wednesday's Daily Show. At least the first act.

So the cops in Michigan walk around with their weapons unloaded? And how did Clark just leave his weapon? Was it unholstered? Was he carrying it unholstered? What kind of Barney Fife operation is this?

They would have to be illegal, so there aren't required to have a bodyguard as well. However, that would for surely put the "minority" as the new "majority". I'm not sure the right-wing would like that very much... Looks like we're at a dilemma.

No, they could be Americans.

Every American gets there own personal guard. Then the American being guarded just gets armed and guards their guard. Solves the job problem too, now everyone gets paid to be a security guard for everyone else. No more need for the job creators.

We'd be much better off if we regulated morons, and just leave the firearms alone.

Less hilarious: Teenager kills two adults, three children with AR-15 in New Mexico.

Just the cost of those precious 2nd Amendment liberties. Five more cashed checks to throw into the corpse pile.

Nothing in that article indicates that the AR-15 was used.
The article wrote:
Investigators also were trying to determine who owned several guns that were found at the home, one of which was a semi-automatic military-style rifle.

Prime example of why some people shouldn't own a firearm.

Rule #1: Treat every firearm as if it were loaded.

Rule #2: Even if you know the firearm isn't loaded, refer to Rule #1.

Turns out the people who are pro-gun are shooting themselves in the foot, figuratively and literally.

Who said they're not?

If you're asking about the focus on one particular class, it's about trying to at least mitigate the damage potential one person/weapon has by restricting its ammo capacity, rate of fire, whatever. I'm sure you can understand that someone with a single-shot bolt action rifle is going to be slower at killing people than the same person with a semi-automatic rifle with a 30 round clip.
